Yeehaw! My first article was just submitted a couple minutes ago. =:)

Earlier today I received an email from someone whose opinion I usually respect — but this time he was saying how entering a contest like this was a waste of time.

So of course I just had to write an article about that:

If anyone is giving you guff about HAHD, take a look at that article for some ammo!

Sitting in my backyard watching all the aerial fireworks, which are illegal on Maui, going off right and left. My computer is inside doing my work.
If it’s like all the past New Years Eves, midnight ought to be like world war 3.
It’ s been like this for a week already. Boy, I wish I had the money that people must spend on all these fireworks.

2010 I plan to be out of debt and making some good money on the internet.

So Hauoli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year in Hawaiian) to all and I wish everyone a prosperous 2010.

Wish you a Happy New Year; Thanks for the information;it is neither a simple nor a tough task;100 is the target by April, 10 th, I feel it is achievable; an article a day is the easiest way to achieve the target.But one should begin it in right earnest today itself.

Very cute. You guys obviously have too much time on your hands.

Get ready, you’re gonna get a BUNCH of articles – including mine – in the next 100 days.

Happy New Year to you, too!

Ruth,

Too much time on our hands? Not really. Those lyrics were written at 2AM with the help of too much coffee and a creative muse that wouldn’t take no for an answer. ;-)

Unless you were actually playing those instruments, I was kind of expecting you guys to start singing those lyrics. I guess it was because you were arranged a bit like a choir too and I see a lot of that stuff. Happy New Year and thanks for being a great site.

Cool lyrics. Submitted two articles already. Just wondering, has the approval process slowed down? For the last 3 days, one of my articles has been in quality control review. My account ain’t basic to be that slow. It’s platinum with over hundred articles. Earlier, the articles used to be approved in a matter of minutes…

Are you guys holidaying or something?

Anyway. Take your time. I got some college homework to do. Happy New Year to all of you. I would really like it if EzineArticles goes from 131 to under 50. It’s been a great progress. When I first submitted an article to EzineArticles, the rank was 3000 or something. Keep up the good work, Chris. You make a great CEO.

I’ll stop by and learn something from you in the future…

We closed an hour early on New Years Eve (Thursday night) and didn’t run 2nd shift. We were also closed yesterday (New Years Day) so that our team can celebrate the holiday (or recover from it ;-).

Our full crew returns for duty bright and early Monday morning.

I can tell you that our current Alexa rank goal is to reach <25. We’re dreaming the dream and doing what it takes to help our members so that we can get there together. :)

I already wrote and submitted exactly 4 articles… I’m thinking about writing many more so that I may be able to write 100 articles in 100 days for sure, because there are days that I cannot write any article…

This challenge is helping me become more productive. I’m trying to write more and at the same time, write about totally different things. This year I can reveal more to my readers, after my first basic lessons. This is exciting!

After thinking about repetitions, I decided to write now totally different articles, without repeating anything, because at the end I think that I have already repeated too much many basic lessons…

I’m in! I’m an active member but haven’t made it to 100 articles yet. This is a great challenge and I’m looking forward to the adventure.

Jan 4 is where we start so 100 articles here we come. One a day should be cool but I’ll have to make three up so I can reach the April deadline.

Looking forward to all who join in on the quest!

I’m not going to promise this time. Maybe reverse psychology will work. Writing 100 articles is not difficult, but writing 100 quality articles is. I will plod along slowly and see what happens. Thanks. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.
