Hello everyone, I am a bit late this week, still shocked by the news of Ryanleaving HubPages. As you might know, the HubMob was an initiative started by Ryan Hupfer to support Hubbers and of course to have fun Hubbing together about the same topic every week. Do not forget to pop in the forum thread to say goodbye to our Hup and wish him all the best on his new project!
Like every week, I'd like to thank all of the HubMobsters who took part in last week's New Year around the World HubMob. It was great to discover new traditions and ways to celebrate New Year.
The holidays are approaching, winter holidays for some of us and summer holidays for others. But whether it is a summer or winter break that you are looking forwards to, we all share one concern: Transportation. Some of us will be travelling abroad to spend Christmas in the sun, while others will be opting for snow breaks but we are all going to be travelling, whether it is by plane, train, car, bus or boat. Even those of you who are staying at home will be facing a sudden surcharge of highways and public transport on your everyday routine as holiday shopping takes over the season. This is the week to write all about transport; private, public, ecological, luxurious or economical.
Some ideas for a HubMob hub on Transportation are:
Automobiles Bikes Boats & Ships Buses Car Pools Commercial Jets Driving Licenses & Permits Ferries High Speed Trains Public Transportation Regulations & Restrictions Roads & Highways Speed Limits Taxis Transportation around the world Underground & Subway
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"
Thanks Princessa - Was hoping to be first but with our time difference will not make it - its past midnight and I have a lot of info to sift through. Good topic (as usual). Thanks for the hard work to keep us busy
Hello Princessa This is an excellent topic and I have just published a hubmob about the scary, but outstandingly beautiful bus trip between Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang in Laos. Here it is and I hope you enjoy it: http://hubpages.com/hub/Bus-Trip
It is a difficult one but the HubMob hubs submitted this week are already doing great so it is worth the effort. Have a look at the Transportation in Society category page http://hubpages.com/topics/politics-and … ation/4953 Our HubMobsters are already featured writers for this category!
Well done ethel smith, Patty Inglish, RedElf, travelespresso, chenmikehk and creation75.
I notice that quite a few hubmob hubs this week do not include the RSS feed. In all fairness I think this should be compulsory as this is the whole idea of Hubmob hubs as opposed to stand-alone hubs (so that all the hubs get extra exposure)
Hello Laura...I read your message and was sure I wasn't one of the "offending" hubs but when I checked them - to my surprise I was! I have found the feeds quite unstable. I had them working on both hubs earlier but then after making a couple of minor adjustments they weren't working again! Don't know quite what I am doing as this is very new to me but a second ago they were both working. Thank you so much for drawing my attention to it.
I cant seem to get my RSS feed to hold. . when I test it . . it is ok but I have gone back and in and out and over and out. . and still once I check after I hit dont editing it says Rss does not seem to be valid!!!! H e l p!
Highlight the RSS link on the first post. Right click on your mouse and select "Copy link location" and then paste in your RSS feed capsule. (make sure you have selected an RSS feed capsule and not a link capsule)
Hope you get it right as this is the whole idea of the hubmob hubs.
Here's another HubMob from me! I am so excited I've managed three transportation hubs this week! This unravels some of the word mysteries in sailing - knowing your sheets, hatches, head, knots and more will help when on board.
Hi Everyone. This is my first time ever trying to create a hub for HubMob Weekly. Wow! I had to pick transportation! But I was determine to create a good hub for it. So, here goes ...
Living in the Chicago area, public transportation can be a pain in my ... back! With less people riding the buses, fares are increasing, service is poor, and the schedule is a mess. It could be much better if more people rode public transit in place of driving their personal cars to work. But how to accomplish this is an elusive target. So I figured I would put out my ideas on How to get more people to ride public transportation, to inspire other to take note and help to change the system.
I hope I have done this right. I'm not sure if I included the HubMob RSS Feed correctly. If someone could check and let me know, I would appreciate it.
Well done on your first hubmob. It is excellent. Your RSS feed isn't working. I've had a challenging time getting mine to work too. I copied the URL given with the hubmob instructions and pasted it into a new browser and then copied and pasted it again into the RSS feed. That seems to work better for me. Good luck.
I just tried again . .this time changing the number of hubs to show . .and still its no good. . so for tonight I will leave it and hopefully tomorrow it may work! But thanks for your response . .at least I dont feel all alone on this one!
here is mine...How Hard Is It To Pass a Drivers Test In a Toronado? but my synapse' didnt synape they just napped when I entered the title the first time I wrote el dorado instead of toronado so the actual http is incorrect http://hubpages.com/hub/How-Hard-Is-It- … -EL-Dorado hey you guys just wait!! you too will have sleeping between synapes one day!!! fun hubmob Princessa this week thank you and love to you!!
Awesome news Laura you deserve it for your quality hubs. Congrats. Like you I've been waiting too. Two of mine reached 98 while I was looking at my stats, but I think they've dropped back. But this is your good news story...enjoy.
