Over at Infobarrel I finally got my 3 long articles about online business models published and now have 19 of the required points for May.
Back at HubPages – backlash time! No – not for Google – hubs still being indexed inside 24hours – but some of the “regulars” are a bit upset about all this hubtivity and lots of mail as the people they are fans of publish new hubs!
Yeah right people get over yourselves – most of them haven’t been there as long as I have either. In fact I’ve seen some old timers who had been quiet for a while come in from the cold – like Mark Knowles. Its interesting that people react in this way – to a “challenge” that in no ways affects them – unless they chose to participate.
Quite frankly I can totally understand people who don’t have time to participate because the a) use hubpages for fun not an income and b) have other priorities in their life. Just don’t expect any sympathy the next time you complain on the forums about making 29c in Adsense in 6 months!
Some people are worried that the “avalanche” of posting will bring down the tone of the neighbourhood and upset Google – apparently unless you agonize for days over your words – it won’t be very good.
Quite frankly I think if you can’t write 500 words on a topic you know in 20 minutes, without gross grammatical or spelling errors you have no right tto call yourself a writer either!
Apparently writing 100 hubs in 30 days means that you have to write rubbish. I don’t think so – here’s a random selection of people I know are doing the challenge: do you think they are rubbish?

I published another 3 hubs 2 in a brand new niche which I found when reading someone else’s hub (no I didn’t steal hers she just inspired me). I still have a no-follow author score of 53 so I am keeping the hub publishing rate low until I can get up to do-follow territory and keeping the niches mixed up too.
To date there have been 565 hubs published with the hubchallenge
