We’re only HALF way done? OMG.. I am so relieved! I thought we had to have them all in by June 1. OK.. I was freaking out cause for the last week I have been brain dead. I am over halfway with my articles so not to worry now. Pheew! That was a close one.

Hi Chris,

I am definitely in too.

Thank you for the reminder that there is only 50 days left to 1st of July.

I like to read your blog as it is always full of interesting ideas and it motivates me to focus on writing more articles as:

More Articles = More Traffic = More Subscribers = More Sales

I hope that all the writers will be able to meet the challenge :)

I had set this very goal for myself unaware of this ongoing challenge till today. Wasn’t sure I could make it happen. But that awesome video “Facing the Giants” has inspired me. Knowing so many others will be staring down the same giants, I am going to give it my best effort! Thanks for the challenge, Jeff!

I’d like to see a 1,000 articles in 100-day challenge, or a 1,000 articles in 60-day challenge.

Oh good idea Lance… lets see how many would enter that challenge. Good grief.

Lance Winslow writes:

Kathy, I think that Sean Mize will hit over 1,000 articles in this 100-day challenge, and perhaps also the writer from Hong Kong. It appears I’ll come up short by about 100 and change, but I am seeing a trend in the volume that some writers are producing now. And for authors like Sean Mize even 1,000 article for his team of writers and software program strategy is not much. For me actually writing every word it really is a challenge. It seems there are many different level writers here, many that write such indepth esoteric niches that 1,000 is impossible, but for some it seems like a really worthy challenge that is attainable. This is why I decided to suggest it.

I’ll certainly try. I’m still behind, but I’ve started to submit 2 to 3 articles a day, and my goal is to submit the 100 articles by the end of this month, so I’m definitely going to make that my #1 priority.

Even if you’re late to the party, there is still plenty of time to complete this challenge… especially if you’re repackaging existing content you’ve already written.

Comment provided May 13, 2009 at 7:56 AM



I’ve only just seen this.

But I’m gonna give it a go – I think I’ll have to write 3 articles a day, some of which can be repackaged but over half will be fresh content.

Interesting challenge.

My personal record is 1,234 articles in one month, my two second bests are 1,111 articles in one month (twice). And I’ve also posted 1,000 articles in one month once also. I wrote an average of 13 articles for two years straight once. I posted I think 20 articles today. I may very well have posted 1,000 articles in this 100-days, we shall see?

Dreaming, we yes that is cool, of course I am into winning, that’s why I only have 10 articles in dreaming and 100s of articles on achievement, success, goal setting, motivation, inspiration, team building etc. If you’d like to learn how I do it, I have written about 500 articles total on on article writing and article marketing.

I take no prisoners. That cartoon guy is me in costume, but my spear is deadly!

Just hit 61 articles for EzineArticles since April 9 or so! I’m gonna do this! I’m also participating in a Hub Pages Challenge to do 100 Hubs in 30 days. I’m rewriting my EzineArticles! Have 12 done so far. 88 to go til June 13! Am I nuts or what? :D

I just signed up. I submitted 1 article today – so 99 more to go. Not sure if my other 4 articles from April will count. I have excluded them.

This gives me incentive. Great idea!

To someone new to this, the challenge of writing and submitting 2 articles a day seemed daunting…so I didnt take you up on the challenge when I first read this post!! But, it kept teasing my mind and now I am submitting 2 per day – thankyou for the motivation.

I’ll kick it up a notch and definitely join in this event. My staff and I have just noticed this blog entry and it caught my eye. I have well over 180 articles that I’ve have been meaning to get around to submitting and entering into the system, but as always… procrastination has gotten the best of me.

Contests like these are great inspiring reasons to get off our laurels and do some work for a change! God knows I needed the encouragement, so thanks for this! =)

Everyone needs to remember that there are only 30 days in June, not 31. And we are in the home stretch, it’s time to pick up the pace if you want to finish on time here. You can do this!



Comment provided May 31, 2009 at 8:04 PM



Are you sure? I thought that the June after leap year always had 31 days – LOL. I wrote more than 50 in May, bringing my total to 1,000 articles! I need about 20 more to meet the challenge by June 31…I mean June 30!

Salam n Hola

Just noticed this from a tweet. Half way through already? 100 articles in 50 days.. 2 articles a day.
That’s sure a challenge for me.

I’m in, and I’m starting right after submitting this comment in here.

I think I’m up for it. Two questions:
1. If I have more than one author alias in my account – do they all count together towards the 100?

2. Do I need to enroll somewhere?

Lee Bailey writes:

After reading things a little more closely I can’t believe I even posted that I’d give it a go, I mean 100 articles in 22 days is damn near impossible for a newbie. I don’t even know where I’m going to come up with 100 articles let alone the time to write them!

Comment provided June 10, 2009 at 1:55 AM




They do not count. It’s 100 articles by the same author name.

No enrollment necessary. We’ll give Details on July 1st how to claim your limited edition #HAHD / EzineArticles mug.

Ruby, I hope you realize that you have three days and a few hours to hit 100. I doubt even Lance could do that! And let’s face it, he’s got this thing down pat!

What and when is the next challenge, whatever it is – count me in. I may be a newbie, but I’ll show you guys how to fly!!

So Chris, lay it on us. We need a new one!

And by the way, no mugs for this one, you don’t want to send them to Canada. Can’t say as I blame you. Canada post is as bad as the U.S.Postal service when it comes to breaking things!!

Just submitted article #100. Goal achieved!

I believe we all need to thank the great Ezine team for approving articles as fast as they have been to meet this challenge. My personal thanks to all of the editors and Chris Knight along with Jeff and friends to thinking of this challenge. The results will benefit all those involved as well as those who chose not to participate.
