HubMob Weekly Topic : Victoria day and everything Canadian

  1. Princessa profile image85
    Princessaposted 6 years ago

    Thank you HubMobsters for taking part in last week's Having a bay HubMob We managed to publish a total of 90 hubs on the topic.  And the star of the week for our baby hubmob is prettydarkhorse with an amazing 8 hubs on the topic.  Don't forget to have a look at her hubs and leave her some feedback.

    This week we are travelling to Canada to celebrate "Victoria Day and everything Canadian" .  Some of you might be familiar with Victoria Day, a public holiday observed across Canada on May to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday and to mark the start of the spring/summer travel.  For all the rest of us, this will be the opportunity to learn about Canada, its geography, culture and everything Canadian. 

    This week, you can choose between our Official HubMob graphic or the Canada graphic created by our guest graphic designer Jen King who has created a personalized graphic for this week's HubMob.  Let's welcome Jen and her graphic to this week's HubMob team.
    http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv19/wyanjen/HubMob/Victoia-Day-4-25.jpg


    Some ideas for a Canadian HubMob hub are:

    Victoria Day Parades
    Canada's history
    Canadian Government
    Canadian geography
    Official languages in Canada
    Canadian symbols
    National Parks
    Places to visit
    Canadian cuisine
    Education in Canada
    Citizenship and immigration to Canada (visas, work permits)
    The Canadian health system
    Canadian actors, writers, singers, etc.


    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. Please 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/48385/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 or Jen's graphic at the start of this thread 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.

        Congratulations pretty for writing up so many hubs on having a baby. You are surely a "pregnancy lady".  I only managed to write 4 hubs last week. I tried to write more but due to time constraints and my busy work schedule, I was unable to do that. Better luck next time.

    I was there when I was three and caught a fish at a lake.  I have a pic of myself standing on a dirt road holding a fish by the string...

    maybe I'll try to find out what lake it was and see what I can come up with.

    after watching the winter olympics, I would love to visit!

    the graphic looks great!

          Well, hello there, and yikes!  I think about it often, but usually after my brother has gone to bed.  I need him to scan it.  Since we've been roommates, I have to admit I can't be bothered with that kind of task.  Not to fear, I actually do[ know where my copy is.  You need to ping me with another email though.

            i think that will work!
            I've not done a lot of hubmob hubs as you know so i could not recall specifics about when they announced topics.

    Hi!  I'm thinking of giving this a try.  I don't have time to join in this week but I'll see what I can do next week if it's a topic I can write about.  Do I have to sign up somewhere?

    1. rmcrayne profile image94
      rmcrayneposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Nope, no place to sign up.  Just start your hub from Princessa's link to "answer the question".  Other instructions are in her initial post each week.  She's also written 2 hubs on HubMob.

    Oh mmmmyyyyy, Rose Mary!!  I don't know why the graphic isn't showing on my hub.  I did try to upload it when I originally published the hub, but was having problems loading it.  I tried several times for about 30 minutes and decided that I was late enough for work. ha ha ha  I uploaded it again tonight.  It shows when I look at it, but it's at the very, very bottom of the page below the comments.  Perhaps I'll move it up.  smile

    Thank you and Princessa for all the wonderful and hard work you do for the HubMob every week.  I can't imagine how much effort it takes, especially for the roundup.  (Yeee-hawwww)  sorry, couldn't resist that one!  Hugs to you both!!!  big_smile

    Hello to all!

    So far I have enjoyed Pamela99, RedElf and barryrutherford's hubs. Nice jobs. I'll check the other ones soon.

    Here's my small contribution, maybe I'll post one or two more about the subject, which I enjoyed a lot. Is about Canada's National Parks.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Canadas-National-Parks

    BTW Princessa the RSS feed is not appearing on the published hub. I checked several times,  on the edit window appears the list of related hubs, I save it, and then, on the published hub, nothing shows up but  this message  "This does not appear to be a valid RSS feed".

    How can this be fixed?

    Thanks, CaribeM

      You need to select "copy link", "copy link location" or whatever your browser says, NOT merely highlight and copy.  You can also click on the RSS link, then from the actual RSS, copy the URL.  Here's more, in Princessa's hub, How to Write a HubMob Hub: Answering the request, adding the HubMob graphic and the RSS feed.

    so I guess you can't use an existing hub on Canada.. on which I have about 5 sad

    1. rmcrayne profile image94
      rmcrayneposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Sorry Greek, but no.  If it’s not in the RSS feed, it’s not HubMob.  This question comes up a lot.  The answers are: 

      1)  Delete the hubs and re-enter them, starting with the link answering Princessa’s question.  OR

      2)  Do one or more additional Canada hubs, starting with the link.  Then at least you can link to your non-HubMob Canada hubs.

    I just finished my first ever HubMob.  New to HubPages I feel like I'm not so much on a learning curve as a learning climb - from total ignorance to total knowledge - I'm still grovelling around the base of that mountain but I am having the time of my life.  The support from others on HubPages and the sense of community lend themselves to making this a very enjoyable experience indeed.

    It took me two days, my kitchen looks like bear cubs have been at it, my husband is starving and my dogs would dearly like to go for a walk...me, I think I need a shower....but...Tah Dah...here it is
