HubMob Weekly Topic: All about animals.

  1. Princessa profile image87
    Princessaposted 5 years ago

    Hello Hubbers, thank you to all the HubMobsters who took part in last week's Easter HubMob  Our work is done for the Easter holidays, now we can just sit and enjoy those chocolate eggs while we wait for our Easter hubs to "mature" and become Top of the searches in April.

    This week, we are off to a completely new topic: Animals.

    http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv19/wyanjen/HubMob/All-About-Animals.jpg

    We are going to pass from the very seasonal Easter topic to an evergreen topic.  This week we are going to be writing about animals.  We all have some knowledge on the topic, whether you are a professional in the area or you just happen to have pets, or even if you don't own any animal but you are engaged in
    raising awareness about animal welfare and endangered species, this is the opportunity to share your views about animals.

    Some ideas for this week's topic are:
    Animal welfare
    Animal rights
    Pets
    Exotic pets
    Farm animals
    Zoo animals
    Endangered species
    Marine life
    Insects and bugs
    How to teach children about animal care
    Advice on solving small problems with your pet

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

    1. START YOUR HUB clicking the http://i53.tinypic.com/2d0amu9.jpg.  green button.  Then 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/113391/hub … ew&rss

    4. Add the HubMob graphic  created for the topic by  wyanjen

    5. Categorize your hub according to your topic. 

    6. Create good quality original content.

    7. 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. 

    Thanks for taking part in the Weekly HubMob!

      Love this topic too!  I am sharing some information in my contribution that is about bringing more birds to your outdoor living space.  Whether or not you love birdwatching, you can benefit your area and community by helping to keep it a hospitable place for our feathered friends.

      I am very new to Hubpages and HubMob so I hope I'm doing this right.
      Recently, a friend of mine almost lost her dog after he got into a pack of sugar free gum that he found.  It turns out that the ingredient Xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs.  According to her vet, the number of Xylitol poisoned dogs which he sees is still on the rise even though the dangers have been known (to some )for years.  I didn't know and I am a dog owner.
         So, I hope this is helpful to some fellow dog owners out there.

      BTW, I don't know how to attach the HubMob graphic. Like I said, I'm a total novice!

        Hello, welcome to the HubMob.  Very interesting entry!

        For some reason the link to your hub wasn't working so I am posting it here again: Xylitol: Sugar Free and Toxic to Dogs


        To add the graphic you can consult this hub How to Write a HubMob Hub: Answering the request, adding the HubMob graphic and the RSS feed

    Thanks for picking a great Topic Princessa, I love animals!  This is my first HubMob participation and I look forward to doing more.  : )

    I chose black bears for a subject because I see them a lot here where I live or hear a lot of stories from others in the area about them.  They are very interesting animals and it's exciting to see one in the wild.

    I wrote about camels in Dubai as I think they are amazing creatures and I wanted to share some of my favourite pics of them that I had taken :-)

    I've written one about cat declawing. It's something that's very close to my heart as I love cats and can't imagine why anyone would want to harm their pet in this way.

    I wrote about pet skunks.  Because I had one.  And I wish I still had one.

      I am a volunteer with a dog rescue group. I mainly do transport for the dogs to foster homes, and am in awe of all the work the rest of the group does, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyful. My hub chronicles a week in the life of a dog rescue group.
