HubMob Weekly Topic: St Andrew's Day and Everything Scottish

  1. Princessa profile image85
    Princessaposted 6 years ago

    Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.  To start the week I want to thank all the HubMobsters who took part in last week's HubMob.  We managed a total of 47 hubs on St George's day and everything English 

    We are going to start April by closing our British circle.  We have already Hubbed about England, Ireland and Wales and this week to finish with the UK we are going to concentrate on Scotland and it's patron saint St. Andrew celebrated on the 30th of November.  I have very fond memories of Scotland, for those of you who have never been there, I invite you to discover this beautiful country; and to those of you who live in Scotland or have had the chance to visit, I invite you to share your experiences with the rest of us.  As it is a wide topic, please make sure that you categorize your hub correctly according to your chosen subtopic.

    Some ideas for a HubMob hub on St. Andrew and Scotland are:

    Places to visit in Scotland
    St. Andrew
    Scotland's national day
    St Andrew around the world
    Scottish history
    Scottish literature
    The Scottish influence in American culture
    Scottish cuisine
    Scottish traditions
    The Scottish parliament and politics
    The Whisky trail
    Loch Ness monster and other mythical creatures
    Golfing in Scotland
    Education and Scottish universities
    Scottish language
    Highland games
    Scottish dances

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

    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.

    3. If necessary change the category on your hub to best suit your topic. 

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/45487/hubm … ew&rss  For more information on how to add the RSS feed to your hub you can click here

    5. Add the HubMob graphic below 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!


    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.

        We already did St David's Day and All Things Welsh, before the contest.  Here's the link:

        It is never too late to join a HubMob.  Princessa never closes her question.  Even after subsequent HubMob topics have been announced, you can still write on an older HubMob topic.  Just make sure you start your hub from the appropriate HubMob link.  Then contact me when you’re done and I will see that you get in the roundup hub.

    You've all set out really good topics for this HubMob! I'm working on one, but it's hard to write and I'll have it up tomorrow or the next day -- too much to digest in the connections I've found. So, I'll read your Hubs in the meantime. It's another great week for HubMobsters.

    Thought I remembered the dances well enough to write about them, then realised I'd actually forgotten most of them.
    AND the vdeos were a nightmare to find because too many were taken when the cameraman was obviously pissed at some function, I had to watch what seemed like hours of footage and I've gone and used up my monthly Gbs bandwidth allowance, so my internet'll crawl for the next fortnight!!

      Welcome to HubMob Tina!! 

      New topics are announced by Princessa in the forum each Monday, but you can still write hubs on old topics.  Princessa never closes the questions.  I routinely enter hubs for HubMob topics after the mob has moved on to new topics. 

      Just click on the appropriate link to start your hub.  When you're done, shoot me an email and I'll enter it/them into the roundup.

      Always start a HubMob hub by answering the question.  Otherwise it will not be in the RSS feed, and therefore not a HubMob hub.  I do the roundup hub from the feed.

    Hi, For St Andrew's day and everything Scottish, I've just posted my first HubMob hub. Have a look, it is about my journey back to my forefather's home in Scotland. I write about his journey to Australia, then trace my roots back to Inverarity and Brechin in Scotland. I then visit Witchden Road and the baptismal place of the pagans in Glams. Lots of great photographs to look at. You will find me here:

    You know I like what you all have started here.  I would like to see this type of HubMob to continue on, however though I'd like to see the challenge focused on other countries and traditions.  Countries such as Poland, Russia, China, Hungry, Turkey, Kenya, and so on.  I've really enjoyed reading about St. George's festival and England.  I'm American.  So it is nice to learn about different festivals, and traditions in other countries.
