    A big thanks to all the HubMobsters who made the Health Care HubMob possible last week.  We managed a total of 24 published hubs on the topic.  A special mention to our most prolific HubMobster of the week, rmcrayne who submitted an amazing 6 hubs:

    Books That Impacted My Journey to Better Health

    Arthritis Relief- Heat Treatment Options

    Nothing's Wrong with You- Failure of Healthcare with Auto-Immune Disorders

    Healthcare in America- Hurry You're Behind!

    Sinusitis- The First Time Western Medicine Failed Me

    Treat Your Body Like Your Favorite Car

    We are almost in October, Halloween is coming and people are starting to wonder what costumes to buy, what decorations they need, what to give young trick-or-treaters and what tricks they are planning to play themselves! So this week, like we did last year we are going to hubmob about Halloween.   This is the time to use your e-bay and Amazon capsules to try to make the most profit out of them selling costumes, decorations, party products, chocolates, sweets, tableware, balloons and even Halloween flowers.

    Some ideas for a HubMob hub on Halloween are:
    Halloween around the World 
    Costumes
    Decorations
    Haunted Houses & Attractions
    History
    Party Ideas
    Religious Perspective
    Trick or Treating
    Halloween celebrations in theme parks: Disneyland, Disneyworld.
    Preparing a Halloween party for: young children, for teenagers, for adults.
    Halloween foods and drinks
    How to curve a pumpkin
    Homemade Halloween decorations
    Homemade Halloween costumes




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

    1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the Answer the Request green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines, AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/21646/hubm … ew&rss

    4. Add the HubMob graphic 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 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!


    If you are still not sure about what is a HubMob and the benefits of taking part in one I created this guide http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-HubMo … o-join-one  please feel free to come up with any questions if you have any doubts left.

    Have a scary time!

    I have a whole series of Halloween Hubs....and this is my latest.  This also happens to complete a challenge I made to myself to write 45 hubs during the month of September so that I'd have an even 200 going into October.  October 5th is my 1 year anniversary with HubPages.  I made it.  This is my 45th in Sept, my 200th overall and I have a day to spare.  smile

    The last HubMob hub that I did is my #1 hub still today.  HubMob works!

        Thank you! It's a great way to get your hub noticed.  Noticed=pageviews=potential clicks=money  Even if you're not in it for the money, having your work read is important. It can't get read if people don't know about it.  The HubMob provides fantastic weekly topics, and exposure like crazy.  I highly recommend it.

      What about Halloween celebrations (or the lack of them) in India?.  Here in France, Halloween is not really a big thing at all, at least not in the small villages where the French seem to resist it.  However we have several local festivities like the "fete de la sorcellerie" or witchcraft festivals and the "pumpkins festival".  How is it in your part of the world?

        I'm sorry, Lily Rose but you're right, it doesn't.

        You have a couple of options, though.  You can unpublish it and publish again (you'll have to pick a different url) or you can write it again, using a different slant.  That way, you'd have 2 hubs on the same subject.
