    Well, it's day 30 and I've got 22 hubs to show for my efforts.  I'm totally amazed at the last few posts... 21 hubs in 30 hours!!  Incredible.  My last took 2 days, and I deleted the sections I didn't have finished so I could publish it before the deadline.

    Here's the link for the log of all my hubs along with the stats for the month. ( … bChallenge)

    It's been worth the effort and I may take the challenge again in a couple months to see if I can't do a little better.

    Hi CDL Career Coach--I remember that we started almost at the same time.  I completely understand how hard it is to keep at it.  Congratulations at completing 22.  That in itself is an accomplishment, esp when we have 'other lives' calling for our attention. 

    Revamp your plan and start it again soon.  I'm considering doing it again in April and so are a couple of other folks.  Take care.

    Congrats on the hubs you did CDL,
    This is the third time I have jumped in here to comment before now, but kept getting interupted, so hopefully I can spit this out fast.
    I didn't exactly finish thirty hubs in thirty days, I came in one day late, but I didn't want to up and quit so I pushed myself to do 21 hubs in thirty hours. (Those last few hubs are going to need some
    Don't give up too fast. It took me a long time to decide to do a challenge. I usually stick with writing hubs for Stan Fletcher competitions or I have tried Cagsil's hub in 30 minutes challenge. Most of it is pushing myself to meet goals I have set for myself.
    I knew this was going to be a challenge to meet my goal when on day one I had to reload my computer. By day three I was pulling my hair out trying to find other drivers and files I needed for my hubs. I haven't even tried looking for my pictures yet. Those I am saving for another day.
    I bet the next time you try this you will succeed. Great hubs by the way...I didn't comment on them yet, but enjoyed reading a few of them.

    Don't worry too much, at least you had a good go at it. I've had two attempts, eight the first time and 16 the next, so at least I doubled my attempt.

    Your Hubs are really good so I'm sure the exercise will increase traffic for you. Best of luck for next time. I'll be having another go in April with Denise.
