    I am doing something I'm calling HubPageWriMo where I'll be writing 100 hubs in 30 days.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to my journey here in the forums, so if you want to follow my journey just search my hubs for HubPageWriMo

    If anyone else is going to be doing this for the month of November, let me know and I'll mention you in my hub.

      I'm working on it, MelBel! But the best I can do is about 60 hubs on a month, if they're going to be of any quality. I will be one of your boosters, though. Cheers!

        If I do 101 hubs in 31 days is that one better?

        Mel, there was a 100 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge some time ago on HubPages.   It caused the worst trouble there has ever been on HubPages - many wonderful writers left as a result.  The mere thought of it makes me quake in my boots.

        The trouble is, you may be able to write 100 Hubs in that time and maintain quality, but most people can't.  The result was a big drop in quality from normally good Hubbers.  A lot of newbies also joined in and wrote 100 rubbish Hubs because they hadn't learned how to write one properly.  There was an enormous amount of angst on the forums.

        That's why the 30 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge came about - because it's manageable for all, but still a challenge for many.

        So I wish you well in your own efforts but I hope this doesn't get too much publicity.

      100 in 30 days is tough.  We had quite a few people try it a few years ago.  30 in 30 is more reasonable and many of us did that regularly for awhile.

      Good luck to you!

      Count me in!  I'll try to do 100 hubs in 30 days. I've already done 30 hubs in 27 days, and need the challenge.

          I think that's a great challenge.  I'm almost there and have been a part of the HP for awhile.  I've been writing every single night since August.  Good Luck!

      No possible way to generate anything even remotely resembling quality on that scale in that period of time.

      Yes, in a plausible universe, some amazing genius who needs no sleep and types 1,000 words a minute could do it, but, in that same universe about 48.7% of all current NFL cheerleaders would also want to come do dirty things to me, and, even more amazingly, my wife doesn't even care and, rather, actually throws herself on the pile of them, adding to the fun. Now, while that is an amazing plausible universe that I love in concept, I have to say, it's a very unlikely one.

        Not necessarily. For example, in the last 48 hours hubber Kathryn Vercillo has published 7 hubs. If she were to continue at that pace, she would have slightly more than 100 hubs in a 30 day period. Her quality has always been top notch. tongue

        She currently has 1120 hubs and a hub score of 100.

      Good luck. That,s very top but you have my moral support. Go for it melbel. I am looking forward to reading them slowly but surely.

      It is possible to produce three quality hubs a day.  Most people say it takes about twenty minutes to write one hub.  It takes me longer than that, but I can surely produce three quality hubs in eight hours. I am finding that the more I do, the easier it becomes, as I become familiar with the process of planning a hub, and get faster at making decisions about what photos to include, etc.

        melbelposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Totally agree with you on that! If you haven't hubbed in a while, it takes a lot of resources to get focused and it takes a while to get everything together. However, when I'm writing a lot of them, I'm on a roll! I just have to keep going!

        Right now, it looks like I'm about 25 hubs behind my target, but I've actually got a mass publishing about 30 hubs coming sometime this week when I get all the photos and everything together. In the meantime, I'm writing more hubs. smile So I SHOULD finish on target. smile

          You can do it Melbel!  You already have lots of excellent hubs.  Like Millionaire Tips said, if you do 3 quality hubs per day - you will get to your target!  Gook luck.  You have my support.

      100 hubs in 30 days. Goodness, that will take an awful lot of commitment. I'm rooting for you smile.

      I wish anyone else who thinks about doing this challenge the best of luck.  It is a difficult stretch, but a do-able one.

      I think this is a neat challenge and I plan on trying it out soon, probably in January. I am a very new hubber so I would like to learn some of the basics before I try this challenge. I think after all, the most important thing is quality of the hubs, then quantity. For example, I just wrote my first hub yesterday, then today I decided to reread it, made a few minor changes to the content, but then I reformatted the whole thing to look much nicer. Perhaps these processes become automatic to the veteran, but I think some professionalism is nice regardless whether posting hubs is just a hobby or a job. It is always possible to just pump out more and more content, but then we wouldn't give ourselves the time to go back and refine our current work. I wish all the best on this challenge should they choose to accept it smile

        I agree with you Vicente, that it is best to get comfortable with HubPages and write a few hubs for practice before joining a challenge, especially one as extreme as this one.

      I would be up for a challenge, perhaps 50 hubs is a more realistic goal for me since my other online work is quite demanding with web design

    21. Richieb799 profile image78
      Richieb799posted 6 years ago

      Yes actually I agree with Marisa, 30 is more manageable to maintain quality. I think Mel wrote this a while back if you look at the first thread post.

      I actually don't like publishing more than 1 a day

      Then again we can't be too prudish about how one defines the quality of a hub.

      This is an old thread, I'm surprised that it was recently resurfaced.

      I failed at it in that I didn't get all the hubs done that I wanted, but I got a ton of awesome ideas. Unfortunately, it did kind of burn me out a bit. I don't recommend it, but I do recommend the 30 hubs in 30 days. tongue

        That's the thing about challenges - even if you fail, you often get more done than if you hadn't tried.  I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention to the date before responding!

          No worries! Thanks for your awesome comments. smile It was definitely a lot of fun. While impossible, I'd like to try it again. tongue Maybe something better like 30/30, though. smile
