Well, let's start the insanity

I'm officially out of school now. And sick with some kind of stomach virus. Not the best way to start a vacation, huh?

Anyway, I haven't been on the Internet much since I got back. Today is my first real day checking my email. That's when I was directed to this. 100 hubs in 30 days? Do I have the balls to go for it?

For those of you who haven't heard, I've been writing stuff on this site known as HubPages. It's kind of like what I do here, except people actually read it, and I'm making money. Granted, it's like $2 a week thus far, but whatever.

This challenge is something else, though. As an experiment to see just how effective this site is, international man of mystery Ryan Hupfer is encouraging people to take the pledge to write 30 hubs in 30 days, or go all the way and take the 100 hub challenge.

Well, I'm not sure if I really have that much to write about, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pass up a good writing challenge. Besides, I could use the money, and I get the feeling this whole responsible college student thing isn't going to work out anyway.

I honestly don't know whether I'll be able to keep up a good enough pace to manage 100. I'm going to start by shooting for the 30-hubs challenge and see where we go from there. I made 22 hubs in my first month of membership, so it'll be enough of a challenge to see if I can crack that. If I do, I'll take the plunge and go for the full 100.


  1. Hey Dan, thanks for the blog post and it looks like you're off to a great start with the HubChallenge so far, o keep it up!

    I bet that you can do 100 if you really get after it -- that's what I'm shooting for. :)

    Be sure to keep us up on your progress over here in the forums when you get a breather in between Hubs:

    Hey dan, I'm out of school too.

    Because I graduated! Get on it you lazy schlub.


    (PS graduation doesn't make you any happier or more successful so maybe do your best to remain in the protective cocoon of academia, actually.)
