I've Accepted the Challenge -- Will You?


Call me crazy, but I like Hubpages. I've been writing on the site for about a month now and it's been an incredible experience. This really is an awesome community and I have enjoyed it a great deal!

So when Ryan Hupfer engaged in a challenge with Courtney Tuttle to write 100 hubs in thirty days and then invited other hubbers to join in, I guess that makes me the third to join the challenge! He announced it on twitter and I jumped right in with both feet before I even thought about what I was doing. Darn that Hup!

There are two challenges: One is to write 100 hubs in thirty days and the other is to write 30 hubs in thirty days. I must be one of the crazy ones, but I chose 100 hubs in thirty days.

I have set some goals and limits for myself. Each hub has to be a minimum of 800 words, but my goal is 1000, preferably 1500. I try with most of my hubs to follow the flagship guidelines, which really fleshes out a hub with images, videos and links. I plan on continuing with this policy, three hubs a day, for thirty days. There are several pages I will be working on in the background which will be released as fourth and sometimes fifth hubs in a day to round off the 100 hubs in thirty days (ten extra hubs!).

Wish me luck! If you're looking for other great hubbers who are following this challenge, there is a list to the right in my blogroll!

  3. I'm loving this blog -- thanks for setting it all up! It should be a great resource for other Hubbers who would like to try out the Hub Challenge after we're all done with our 30 days (if we make it!).

    Please keep us updated on your progress and keep that quality up!

  5. Lissie, I'm going to get you added to the blogroll. I just got overwhelmed over the weekend (go figure)!

    Hup, is there a way that we can centralize the blog links to make them easier to find? I know that Nelle tried to do this but it got lost in the forum fray :(
