13 Hubs in 13 Days | HubPages

Updated on May 7, 2011

Writing this 13th hub with in 13th days wasn't the easiest challenge I have taken on lately but it is part of the bigger challenge I took on of writing in the "30 hubs in 30 days hubchallenge". I entered into the challenge on the first day as a member of the Hubpages community Friday August 13, 2010 and I will complete the challenge September 13, 2010.

Understanding the hubchallenge guidelines, I hadn't realized that this could be a little bit harder to accomplish than I had thought. Writing has not always been a strong subject for me but has always caught my attention as something that one day through trial and error that I might be good at or at least get better at.

In order to complete 13 hubs in 13 days I had to at least write 1 hub per day in order to not fall behind on the ultimate goal of 30 hubs in 30 days. Surely I didn't want to fall behind especially since I hadn't even made it to the half way point yet.

Finding ideas to write about isn't very hard but taking those ideas and putting them into text can be on another story. Reading other hubbers suggestions to write about things that you know about or things that your good at is very good advice.

Sometimes the words just flow to the point that it is hard to stop writing and other times there seems to be a invisible barrier that must filter the words almost like in slow motion. Some refer to this type of condition as writers block.

Writing about what I know is fun but sometimes in order for the topic to make sense to general readers, some research might be necessary before I can create a sound hub or article.

Most of the talk about keywords and backlinks are topics that I have learned about through blogging and still continue to learn about. Not all my articles and hubs get jam packed with relevant keywords because of the fact that if so much time is spent trying to use the best keywords, then alot of the points that I'm trying to get across to the reader is lost.

The great thing about hubpages is that hub articles can be edited, if I make a mistake easily I can tweek a sentence or paragraph as needed. Sometimes pictures need to be adjusted or deleted and all this helps with making a interesting and popular article to read.

A good way to get through the rest of the 30 hub in 30 day hubchallenge is to continue to write at least one hub a day for the remainder of the 30 days. All this writing will help improve my writing skills and also help me jump start my hubpages library of hubs. Everyday I learn more and more about how to be a good hubber and by reading some of the great hubs others have written I have learned about so much more. 13 hubs in 13 days has been an exciting journey and I look forward to continued success through

      Thank You BenjaminB, Keywords ah yes what a great topic for debate. As for the hubchallenge I took on the challenge only knowing from past experience that if I don't require myself to write Then I wont. Kind of funny but true also in order to generate a little coin getting a few..30 hubs really helps, They can always be re-amped as needed. Thanks again

      I keep seeing this 30 day challenge everywhere I wonder on hubpages. Personally I feel like I do my best work when I don't feel a sense of urgency,so I don't feel it would be a proper tribute to my work(though humble in it's merit)and would leave me producing work I was not pleased with.For others this might just be the avenue to spur them into action and take the fast road on their writing journey.I voted you up on this one WoodsmensPost due to one line in this hub," so much time is spent trying to use the best keywords, alot of the points that is trying to get across to the reader is lost.". I've read countless hubs where the writers had no clue how to properly integrate keywords in a manner that came across in a proper flow.This is still something I'm working on myself,but it's the recognition of this in my opinion that will lead to better writing and improved keyword integration in the future.Good luck in your endeavors,I'll be keeping an eye out for more hubs from you that can spur such lengthy rants from within.

      Thanks Alison for the vote of confidence it really makes my day today! You are doing great with 50 hubs, hopefully I can be with that many in 4 months. Thats a great accomplishment all of which takes time. Make it enjoyable that is what counts the most .. and a little coin helps.

      Wow, you have done amazingly well since you started on HubPages, I thought I was doing well with 50 in four months! I agree with what you say about having ideas but finding it hard to get them down in print, I have a long list of titles but turning them into hubs is another story! Voted up!
