One blogger meets the challenge

Amazing! There is a blog post over on The Keyword Academy - "Make Money Online with HubPages Experiment Complete" - that gives a recap of his goal to make 100 hubs in 30 days. He was able to create 40 hubs in the first week, so that gave him a great start, and by the end of the 30 day experiment, his total revenue in AdSense was $475.26! That doesn't even include anything he may have made with Amazon or eBay, if he had included any of those modules on his hubs.

One of his secrets he says was to write long articles - 1,000 words or more - and then to find unique keywords. Of course, everyone always talks about the importance of the all magical keywords, but I guess it does pay off if you are able to write about things that people are searching for!

My goal isn't quite as ambitious - 75 total hubs in 30 days, which will require me to write 25 new hubs. So far I was able to add a new hub on How to Blog using Microsoft Word 2007. I have a list of ideas for future hubs - it's just a matter of making time to write!

So a few people are trying a new challenge - 30 hubs in 30 days over at Hubpages. Check it out!

I have just under 50 Hubs to my name, but a few of them are in need of some work! My personal goal is to get up to 75 quality hubs in the next 30 days or so.
