My personal 10 Hubs in 10 Days Challenge.

Hello once again folks. It's ya man Brad H. coming back at you again. I'm coming to you on a rainy Monday evening here in Texas. I can't speak for everyone else, but rainy days provide little motivation to do much. However, we can't let the rain keep us from doing what we got to do. At any rate I hope this reaches you all in good health and spirits. Today's post is going to be fairly brief and straight to the point. It's about a personal challenge that I embarked on almost two weeks ago. I called it the "10 Hub in 10 Days Challenge".

Some of you know or may be familiar with the passion that I've developed for blogging. The website, Hubpages is one of the sites that I blog on. I've been writing on Hubpages for around 7 months. Up until I decided to do this challenge I set for myself, I had written 19 hubs. Hubs are the name given to articles on Hubpages. I've been looking for a way to become more motivated to write on Hubpages, so I set the 10 Hubs in 10 Days Challenge for myself. Now before I go any further, I want to say that there is another challenge that many other writers on Hubpages do. It's called the "30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge". The name of this challenge is pretty self-explanatory like the one I made for myself. I'll talk more about the 30 day challenge in a bit.

I wanted to set a challenge for myself that I feel would challenge me, but would also allow me to reach it as well. As I mentioned in previous posts, you don't have to go all out everyday in reaching your goals. Small goals and small steps are key. Three days into my personal challenge, I posted a question on Hubpages asking if anyone wanted to join me on the challenge. I received two responses, and one of the writers decided to do the challenge with me. Now I personally found this to be a great thing. Not only did I have someone else encouraging me to finish out this task, but I was helping to motivate someone else also. I love it when support comes from someone else, or a group of other individuals. This is something that I actually wrote about in one of my hubs.

Now that I've finished the challenge, I'm going to be posting the 10 articles on my blog for anyone who wants to read them. I'll be posting one article daily until all ten are posted. I want to give a special thanks to Hubpages user She is the writer who took the challenge with me. We've corresponded several times through e-mail, and we've both decided to tackle the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge. She is the person who inspired me to want to take on this new challenge. We are planning on starting the challenge in June, so I'm going to start preparing myself to be ready. I'm definitely up for it. Well that's it for today folks. I'll start posting articles tomorrow. If you want to read my hubs, you can read them at I'm also going to be adding a widget from Hubpages to my blog, so you can read my material that way as well. Well take care everyone, and I will be back soon. Till then, peace and blessings to all.


  1. Hub pages is my next project. Rather than working on too many sites at one time I am kick-starting one site at a time. Just adding content to Triond this month, and will start Hubpages soon. Great way to generate a portfolio. I will be ttrying this same challenge when I start there. THanks.

    1. Hello Artyfax. Glad to hear that you are interested in writing for Hubpages. I agree with you about working on too many sites at one time. It can greatly affect your work at different sites when you are involved in many others. Thanks for reading my post and best wishes to you.
