    Good morning HubMobsters!

    We had another amazing week with a total of
    61 HubMobs published last week.  47 awesome HubMobbers joined in last week's HubMob about your favourite entertainer.  I think we all had a lot of fun writing about our favourite entertainers and learning about everyone else's.  This has been the most popular Request, EVER!  Altogether the HubMobsters are managing almost 900 views a day in this topic alone!

    This has been a very fun but difficult week for the HubMob Team trying to decide on the best 3 HubMobs of the week.  All 61 hubs are amazing, each in their own style and subject.  I have learnt about so many new people in the entertainment world during this week and I have sighed when reading about some of my already favourite singers, writers or actors.  A difficult decision, but we have come out with these three winning HubMobs for last week:

    1) A Day Without Laughter Is A Day Wasted
    2)Ventriloquist Terry Fator and His Wonderful World of MakeBelieve
    3) Savion Glover Tap Master

    Congratulations hipattrick for a first place, Dottie1 for a second and Triplet Mom for a third place.  Excellent work smile



    For this week, we are going back to a more serious topic: Education.  Now is the time to share all your knowledge about colleges, universities, exams and degrees.  The Hubmob topic for this week is: Education: Colleges, Universities and other educational options

    The topic includes:
    - Universities: university ratings, degrees, courses, fees, requirements.
    - Preparing for the SAT test or equivalent.
    - Best degrees.
    - Best online degrees
    - Requirements that we all need to know to do a __  course
    - Accredited full-time and online courses (free and paid)
    - Formal education
    - International students: courses, fees, requirements.
    - Higher education in your country
    - Postgraduate courses
    - Education for adults.
    - Distance education: where, how, benefits, prices, accreditations.
    - Best courses to do to work as a ____
    - Top colleges for getting a ____ degree
    - Educational resources.

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


    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub about Education.  Make the topic your own.  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.

    3.Choose a relevant title for your HubMob and feel free to use the tags that I suggested and add your own tags.  To get a good ranking in the search engines make your title relevant to your hub content and avoid starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. Write an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea.

    4. Include this HubMob RSS Feed in your hub.

    5. Add any of the two HubMob images specially made by ProCW for the occasion to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    6. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.  Take advantage of the free publicity!

    7. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keywords over on Google.

    Yep, that's about it - have fun writing your HubMob Hub this week and please let us all know if you have any questions. Have fun, you crazy HubMobsters. smile

    It seems all the hubbers are scratching their heads in order to submit this week's hubmob. Princessa this time its a tricky one.

    1. Princessa profile image83
      Princessaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Tricky?  not really, I am sure the HubMobsters will come up with relevant good quality hubs.  There are already 5 HubMobs published on the topic -with around 200 views a day between the 5 of them and this is only the second day!

      Remember that there is a great scope of subjects to choose from, like for example:

      - Universities: university ratings, degrees, courses, fees, requirements.
      - Best degrees.
      - Best online degrees
      - Requirements that we all need to know to do a __  course
      - Accredited full-time and online courses (free and paid)
      - Formal education
      - International students: courses, fees, requirements.
      - Higher education in your country
      - Postgraduate courses
      - Education for adults.
      - Distance education: where, how, benefits, prices, accreditations.
      - Best courses to do to work as a ____
      - Top colleges for getting a ____ degree
      - Educational resources.
      You can write about electronics and the electrical industry, what degree do you need to work as an industry analyst and researcher.  I'll be waiting for another great hub from you hipattrick smile

        One fun topic might be how I learned in college that I could study just three nights a semester and get a B in Western Civilization.......Only problem is, I don't remember how I pulled it off! I'll think of something, though.
