    I've seen this 30 day challenge thing and it sounds like a great idea, but how on earth do you think of so many things to write about?

    I thought it'd be interesting to see what kinds of things help people come up with ideas for hubs. I'd like to have hundreds of hubs but the ideas just don't come flowing like I'd like them too, haha

      My inspirations come from my spiritual life as well as everyday happens.  Many times something will cross my path in the course of a day, and next thing I know, it has become a hub. smile

        That's how I am with my comics. I draw simple 3-frame comics for my friends, and normally the idea will come from a daily happening or really just out of thin air. It's a lot easier for me to come up with a quick few drawings than an entire article though tongue

          I just use the idea... Here is an example. Around here we have what I call Boom Cars...those stereos on wheels that vibrate you, your home and your vehicle.  I was sitting here one night thinking what I could write about, and "bingo" my pictures on the walls started vibrating, feet started bouncing on the floor and I became irritated at the noise pollution! I then had my hub idea presented to me on a platter, lol.

            haha, that's great! I'll definitely just have to think more about potential hubs in everyday situations, there are probably hundreds that I'm missing out on just because I'm not thinking of hubpages at the time

    I've completed two challenges, and I know I can write a Hub or two a day if I set a goal to do so.  The thing about challenges is that you set the pace for you.  You don't have to do a Hub a day.  If you feel so creative one day, how many Hubs do you think you can write?  If I was motivated, I'd write a couple of Hubs, and take a day off.  Or two or three.  You have to believe you are going to complete your 30, and what if you are several days past your deadline?  That's perfectly fine.  There are writers who don't finish, but they come back and complete the project because they know what to expect and how it's done.  Everyone is an expert at something.  As you go through your day, take a look at what you do and what interests you.  I'm sure you will find something to write about.  What are you passionate about?  I'm sure there are people out there who share your passion or want to know more about it.

    I'm really new here and only have a couple of hubs. This topic hits home for me, because I would like to write a new hub each day, but wonder how I will find the time and ideas to do so.

    Between writing for my own blog, keeping up with online forums, and taking care of everyday life...I feel a little overwhelmed with the blog a day challenges. So far I haven't even considered joining a challenge.

    Thanks for the ideas from everyone who posted.

    I participated in a number of the 30 day Hub Challenges in the past and one of the things that helps me is devoting days when I don't feel inspired to write to simply brainstorming ideas.  Many of my ideas come from things I hear on the radio or TV that I find interesting.   

    From the brainstorming sessions I go ahead and start researching the keywords and go ahead and create the hub.  I always have at least 1-2 dozen hubs in various stages of completion to work on.  That way, when I sit down, I always have something I can work on and don't have to wait for an idea.

    Then, I sit and work on a hub until I get bored with it and stop and work on another one.  Then, eventually, I may complete 2-3 in one night. 

    I'm not saying I do all my hubs like this, because some are inspired and I just sit down and write them from beginning to end in one sitting.  I just don't usually have the luxury of doing it that way for 30 days straight.

      I do that to a certain extent with my blog...I just need to be more efficient and get more ideas down while they are still fresh.

      Thanks for the idea:)

    LOL....I just checked.....I have 40 hubs sitting waiting to be finished (some with just titles and keywords) right now.
