An Instant Hub Challenge- Care To Join In?

    Hey Hubberville,

    Are you in the mood to write? Would you like an energy rush from adrenaline? Step up, take on the Instant Hub Challenge! wink big_smile

    What is an "Instant Hub Challenge"? To be completely honest it varies from host to host, however, the main objective is to write and publish one hub in 30 minutes time. You begin when everyone else begins. It must be a fresh hub and not one already started.

    The variations- poetry is not generally accepted, but technically, a hub is a hub, regardless of what's written. In this challenge, poetry is not being considered quality, because it lacks wording sufficient to pass substandard ratings.

    So, if you're up for a challenge, then come join me at 7:00pm Eastern Standard Time, USA. I'll be more than happy to read and comment on each hub written from the challenge.

    Come join the fun? smile

      Sounds fun, but too late in the day for most us in the UK to participate.... sad

        It's actually, usually done later, like around 11:30pm. I'm just in the mood to write and see who else is too. smile Sorry. smile

        That challenge isn't happening. The time to start was 3/4 of an hour ago. However, if you feel like attempting it, then time yourself and see if you can do it in 30 minutes. wink

        Back from dinner.  Went to Outback with my cousin.  Love the Bloomin Onion.

        Let me know next time anyone chooses to do this 30 min HubPage contest.

      Darn. I was working on a hub and just published it. Too bad I didn't wait another 20 minutes, lol!

      1. Cagsil profile image80
        Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        The Instant Hub Challenge is about consciously writing a hub in 30 minutes. wink

          leahleflerposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I did one write a fresh hub in about 30 minutes, but had no idea there was going to be a challenge coming up. I have spectacular timing.

          Actually, it took me about 40 minutes, so even if I had started at 7:00, I doubt it would have been done by 7:30. Maybe next time!

          1. Cagsil profile image80
            Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            Good job on publishing your new hub though. It's one more to tuck under your belt. smile big_smile

      Given the problems Hubpages appears to be having at the moment should you really be encouraging people to pump out second rate pages right now?

      1. Cagsil profile image80
        Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Encouraging second rate pages? WOW! hmm

        Really? Are you kidding me? hmm
