Participating in the 100 Articles in 100 Days Marathon Challenge (#HAHD) just got a whole lot easier!
Thanks to a recent upgrade to the EzineArticles Member Interface, you’ll now be able to actually “sign-up” for the #HAHD Challenge, check your progress anytime and never have to submit a prize claim email again!
How is this Different?
Previously, you did not have the option to sign-up. You simply notified us when all 100 articles were submitted. You also had to manually track your article submission progress. We have taken the guesswork out so you can focus on your writing.
With the newly added features, you will now be able to sign-up for the challenge, track your #HAHD submissions, and update your address on file to make certain you receive your prizes for all your hard work. Are you ready?
Click on the “Sign Up for the #HAHD Marathon Challenge” text link in the left navigation bar.
Verify your postal mailing address and update it if necessary. This address must be correct in order to receive your prizes.
Select the author(s) you want to enter into the challenge. Keep in mind that articles from multiple author names may not be combined. However, multiple author names may qualify individually. Prizes will be awarded to each qualified author name.
Click the “Verify & Sign Up” button to submit your #HAHD enrollment.
A confirmation window will appear confirming your enrollment.
In the left navigation bar you’ll now see one or more progress bars indicating your current progress in the #HAHD Challenge for each author name you’ve selected. Once you have submitted the required 100 articles, the progress bar will be be filled and show “100% Complete” beneath it.
That’s all you have to do – you’ll receive your prizes a few weeks after the completion of the challenge!

Can you believe it? We’re already more than half way through the second EzineArticles 100 Articles in 100 Days Marathon Challenge (#HAHD). The huge number of authors who have taken the #HAHD pledge is astounding. If you’re not one of them, there’s still time to qualify – but you’ll need to start writing and submitting TODAY!
If you’ve already committed to the challenge, we’d like to take this opportunity give you an update and to clarify a few less-than-clear points about the prizes we’re offering.
There are still more than sixty First 100 Qualifier slots available! Remember, it’s the first 100 members who submit a minimum of 100 qualifying articles AND send a prize claim email to firstname.lastname@example.org that will win the fleece throw, the hat and the invitation to a private 4-hour Article Marketing Teleseminar hosted by Chris Knight!
There’s still time to qualify! Any articles submitted after 12:00AM CDT, Saturday, August 1st, will automatically count toward your #HAHD total whether you’ve pledged to enter the challenge or not – so you may be closer than you think! Even if you’re starting at zero, there’s still time – many authors have qualified in a lot less time.
