HubMob Weekly Topic: Transportation

    Hello everyone, I am a bit late this week, still shocked by the news of Ryan  leaving 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"

    3. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/27475/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. If necessary, change the category for your hub.

    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!

    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) smile

    1. travelespresso profile image83
      travelespressoposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      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.

        Laura du Toitposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Don't worry you are not the only one and I agree the RSS feeds are sometimes a bit unstable. Thanks for putting in the RSS link as this benefits the rest of the Hubmob hubbers. smile

        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. smile

    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.

    1. travelespresso profile image83
      travelespressoposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      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.

      1. floating mind profile image85
        floating mindposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Thanks travelespresso. 
        You were right.  It takes a bit to figure it out.  But I finally have it in place.
