I had given my fellow hubpages hubbers a challenge "3 hubs in 60 minutes. Are you daring enough to do it?" But many hubber couldn't do it. Only one could do it and it was Betty Reid. I'll tell you 1 thing, Betty was very daring! Ok so now i have reduced the difficulty and made this challenge.
The rules are the same and you can start it at any time. Now let's see if you can complete my challenge. After all it's a challenge.
Jeez enough already!!!,still dont think you can produce 2 decent hubs in one hour even if you already have the ideas already to go!!,how about 1 hub in 2-3hours well written with good content!!
I can write more than two hubs in an hour .... setting aside the quality LOL
If I thought my computer, hubpages, and the internet would get the timing down, I might be able to do one in an hour, but probably not two. Of course, if you have read any of my hubs, they are very detailed.
When I write a hub, I usually have to get it ready in my works program first, and then transfer the written part to hubpages, and decide how I want to arrange it as I go. Sometimes my internet times out, and I have to start all over again. Thank god I no longer have a dial-up connection, because those time-outs rarely occur anymore.
It's cool, because I was able to download a video to Youtube in less than 2 hours. With dialup, I couldn't do that at all, or it would take an entire day.
So, It really depends on what your content is. I have seen some hubs that don't have much to them at all. It's like they are there just for the count.
Jason, its "challenge", not "challange".
Sorry not trying to be pedantic.
I am going to do this challange right now and I start it in..3...2...1...NOW!
Heres my two....
1) Somewhere Far, Far away.
2) One fine misty morning.
I completed my challange in 26 minutes and 33 seconds. I also Added some picts and some beauty and hard work. So go and check it out!
OK here's my two. I haven't made hubs yet but here's the text.
These were very big things that lived before we came along. They ate leaves and some ate meat. Not all were big, but the best ones were. One was called T Rex. I don't know what the other one was called.
Recipe for Exotic Toast
Take one bit of bread and stick it in the toaster. Press down with a fork until sparks appear. Wait three minutes. Using fork, dig around in toaster until bits of bread pop out. Sprinkle with salt, anchovies and parmesan cheese. Sling in bin.
It didn't take as long as I expected once I'd buckled down, got organised and cleared my thoughts. Obviously there was research, then keyword analysis and an assessment of potential markets.
Then a literal 59 minute burst of spontaneous writing, on a total adrenalin rush and, yep, The Dinosaurs 'hub' was was ready.
I only spent a minute on the toast thing. Cooking's not my area of expertise.
Thanks Jason, you are very kind.
I'm still working on the Dinosaur one. Cheating really, but I can never leave my 'work' alone.
I am speachless! Thanks for calling me a kind person.
Mark, DONT cheat but coping points from here and there is allowed. Good luck, You will need it.
LOL Ketchup was exotic to me until I was 18!
Start with one can of cream of tomato soup. Add croutons.
Oh pandoras box, Don't you know that i had experimented with these recipies and added a twist of my own?
Think I'll pass on the challange... Even though it does sound rather extoic.
2 hubs txt.
Toxic Toast Soup Recipe
3. Raw sewage
Toast the bread, boil some water, then break the toast up, add salt, then using an industrial vacuum cleaner, siphon some sludge out of a nearby sewer. Mix, bring to a boil (again) ring the soup bell and bon apetit!
How Not to Die
1. Continue Breathing
2. Eat food and drink water
3. Sleep routinely
4. Avoid excessive bleeding
5. Don't jump from heights of over 100 ft.
6. Don't harass any serial murderers.
Nice work Smart guy. That toast sounds yummy. Piquant even.
I think the hub on Dinosaurs is the best so far. All along I thought T. Rex was just a '70s rock band referenced in a Who song.
You're my kind of guy. However, if I'd gone down that route I would have gone over my alloted time.
I'll tell you what though. We have 4 possibilities for hubs out of this (2 each , no cheeting) - which is not bad going.
And the keywords for Toxic Toast, Sewage Toast, even dare I say, Exotic Toast - they must be worth something.
Why don't we write about how to open up a tin of condensed tomato soup and serve it up with toast - just normal toast but maybe broken up into little pieces to make croutons? That a good idea?
OR, for those who do have difficulty- just a hub on opening a can of tomato soup- with two options- one with the pull ring thing that you bravely pull and hope for the best and the second with that kitchen gadget we can a tin opener (not sure what other countries call them)
So we have a tin opener, a tin of tomato soup, a loaf of bread - all of which Amazon sell....and a COOKER to heat it up on. Oh and if we go away and leave it unattended, we could also sell fire extinguishers, smoke alarms etc.
Oh yes this is going to be a highly profitable topic!
As a general observation - an awful lot more people think they can write poetry than can do so......
Jason Nicols, perhaps you should write a poem about exotic soups.
Two hubs per hour,
exotic meals to devour.
You can write fast,
and your lunch is unsurpassed.
Despite the negative feedback, I am going to try it again. Starting now.
I am gonna go and check it out right now! Ok Betty, Please post here in how much time did you write these 2 hubs. We hubbers would love to know:)
Ok it took an hour to do just one but I think it ticks all the boxes.

Thanks to all on this thread for the inspiration.
Good hub,totally fool proof.lol.Couldnt do two quality hubs like that in an hour though eh!!
For me, the research is everything. So I will spend literally hours on a subject before even the first words are forming. I think this attention to detail will pay off one day.
No, I couldn't possibly do two in an hour. Even if its essentially a bit of nonsense, I want people to get something out of it in return for them visiting. Heck, I want to be proud of it.
I can't do this because when I write I do research also. My other hubs are simpler but I still need time.
If I write another hub, say in a couple of days time, can I add it to the one challenge hub I've already done?
Or should I save that hub until a challenge comes along?

How much time do you normally require to write a hub on the average? I am asking this because I can easily write a hub within 30-40 minutes time and sometimes a hub will take a couple of hours or so. BUT food hubs are taking a lot longer to complete, maybe because I haven't written much articles on...

So, Hubtivity is swamped with new hubs that nobody really wanted to write and nobody really wants to read. The natural (and excellent) dynamic of this Great Domain is destroyed. And those of us who have work to do or are less than competitive by nature can only sit back and wait for the feeding...

Someone said, somewhere that to be able to make a living as a writer, you need to be able to research and create an entirely unique, let's say, 615-word article in around an hour. I'm specifically omitting the name of the person who said this to show emphatically that I'm not calling said person...
