HubMob Weekly Topic: Ways to improve your life in 2009.

    Hi HubMobsters,
    Some of you know me already but for those who don't I have been hubbing for more than a year and it has been a wonderful experience.  First all of let me wish you a Happy new year.  I hope you all had an awesome time.  This is going to be an amazing year. 

    Last year Ryan introduced the Hubmobs and they were a great success with several hubs reaching first page on Google every week.  With the holiday season we stopped the HubMob and a couple of weeks ago when Ryan asked me to help bringing it back  I couldn't be more than happy to help. 

    So to go with the New Year resolutions the first official topic for 2009 is Ways To Improve Your Life In 2009
    http://i40.tinypic.com/25ez1qo.jpg

    I chose this topic because we all have our own ideas of how to make our life better so it would be easy for all hubbers to join in.  Remember you have a whole week to join in the fun.  All you need to do is pick your subject, whether you can improve your life by learning a new skill, starting a new hobby, improving your diet, exercising, stopping a bad habit or changing jobs, the choice is enormous. 


    To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:

    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on something to do with the topic of Improving your life in 2009  Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request  that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested and add a few of your own.

    3. Write an amazingly comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries
    http://hubpages.com/request/9527/best?new&rss that way your hub will promote other hubbers' hub and your hub will appear in their hubs too for some great cross promotion.

    4 Remember to add the HubMob image (specially made for the occasion by ProCW) to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    5;- After you have published your hub come back to the forum and post a link to your hub so we can all see it.  Feel free to tell us a bit about it and to keep us updated on views and ranks on the search engines, so we can celebrate your success together.

    6. The most important point about HubMobs: HAVE FUN !

  4. LegendaryN8 profile image61
    LegendaryN8posted 8 years ago

    What if I use a hub I already created?

    This is the one I was going to suggest in particular (since the focus is on weight-loss and fitness).

    http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-lose-weight-with-DDR

    It's only 6 days old, so I figure it's "2009".

    I can tweak it, tag it, and add the RSS feed no problem - I just want to make sure that this is within the guidelines of the Hubmob.

      Hi Nate, a HubMob should be created using the HubMob request... sorry!

      I am sure you can come with another amazing hub to join the HubMob I had a look through your work and it is very good.  Congratulations on your 10th hub smile

  6. LegendaryN8 profile image61
    LegendaryN8posted 8 years ago

    OK - so I am kicking around a hub idea for this project and I am zoning in on hobbies:

    I think a great hobby (actually skill set) is to acquire a new language.   I'm bilingual (Espanol es la otra).  I learned in a "cram school", for lack of better phrasing, and got a lot of notes on how to pick up a second language.  Since I wasn't raised bilingual, I can give good insight on what it means to acquire proficiency in another language as an adult.

    Do you think this would be a good hub for ways to improve your life in 2009?  I think being bilingual or a polyglot is a wonderful hobby (skill) to work on.

      Hello RGraf.

      Sorry about the delay in my response. If you haven't figured it out yet, you may do the following...

      Inside of one of your image modules within your hub(s), select "The Web" and then enter an appropriate URL

      The URL is:

    I'm glad Princessa came up with this awesome topic, because it was just what I needed to get off my large behind and start writing hubs again (I've been so hard trying to finish my first draft of a novel I'm writing that everything else has gone on hold).
