There has been a lot of talk about sports at HubPages Headquarters lately, so I’ve decided to make this week’s theme beginner’s guides to individual and team sports. Evergreen (that’s non-newsy) sports Hubs actually have great long-term potential!
As I’ve shared on our blog, you don’t have to be a huge sports fan to be a potentially great sports writer. Nearly everyone is an expert in some sort of sport, be it something more common, such as basketball, or something a bit more obscure, such as jousting.
Here are some ideas for titles you might use: A Beginner’s Guide to _______ The Basic Rules of ___________ Important ________ Safety Tips _____________________ for Kids __________: Rules of the Game How to Play _________________
And if you’d like some further prompts, here are some keyword researched titles on various different sports: Basketball Rules for Beginners The Anatomy of a Fencing Sword Soccer Rules for Beginners Table Tennis Rules for Beginners A Guide to Medieval Jousting Rules Tennis Rules for Beginners How to Play Tennis: A Beginners’ Guide The Most Commonly Overlooked Rules of Golf 10 Funny and Strange Baseball Rules How to Play Soccer in the Rain Coaching Soccer: A Beginner’s Guide Basic Baseball Rules for Beginners Essential Fencing Equipment for Beginners
I don’t know about you, but I would LOVE to read articles on these things!
If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Click here to visit this week's topic. 2) Click the green button "answer this question". 3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it." 4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens 5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before. 6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
I have only joined hub page a week ago and I am really interested in sport and cant wait to start a hub. My plan is to start tonight when the house is quiet. I have decided what to write about and of course it will be my son of nine years old whom I will be thinking of when I am writing. Please check me out.It will be just coming from the heart. tune in tomorrow.
I have two worries. First, the hub I created may be off-topic. I'm not really sure. I won't teach any one how to play a sport. But I will explain some rules. Second, my hub might be considered adult content. I certainly hope it won't fall under that category. In any case, I'm taking the risk. If I violate any rule, I'd be more than willing to delete my hub.
I wrote about the art of butt slapping. Yeah, you read that right. After learning about this week's topic, I watched sports on TV, hoping to get an idea on which sport to write about. But instead, I noticed some strange antics in sports. And so I thought of writing about the strangest of them all: butt slapping.
This is a great topic, one that I didn't think I would be able to write about at first. Then I remembered that I used to play Underwater Hockey in college! I though, what an obscure sport, I bet nobody has ever even heard of that! So I decided to write a hub on it, I hope everyone enjoys it!
I joined my high school's brand new lacrosse team my Freshman year as a totally out-of-shape, awkward, quiet girl who was bullied and abused verbally and online for several months previous.
Girl's lacrosse honestly changed my life. I was never very good at it, I only played for three years (one on Varsity) and it definitely had some major up's and down's, but I treasure the experience and want others to know and love the sport like I do.
I set out to write an article on building water confidence for beginning swimmers, but my research led me in a different direction. I think (hope) this still qualifies for the WTI. It is now called: Is it safe to take your baby swimming? http://melovy.hubpages.com/hub/A-Beginn … o-Swimming
Simone, I’ve added in an definition of the diving reflex. Let me know if anything is still unclear. I think the problem is that even experts don’t fully understand it, so it’s not easy to give a definitive definition!
Sigh, this week's topic just isn't coming together for me. The more crazy sports I find, the more I keep finding the same sports...over and over and over again, in list after list of "world's craziest sports." That's no fun. I'm going to start working on something else. Maybe inspiration will strike over the weekend.
Alright, I finally got mine done. I didn't end up covering nearly as much as I wanted to. I was going to go over the ins and outs of finding the proper tennis racket size, including grip size, head size, weight, and length. But, I got started and realized finding the right grip size was a hub in and of itself. Sheesh!
Thanks, Simone! Sadly those years of tennis is precisely why I'm having yet another knee surgery (I think it's number 6, I've lost count) one week from today. But, heck... it was worth it. I love (and miss) the sport. Good thing I'm getting to teach my kids!
Ah, such is the unfortunate side effect of loving so many sports!! Even I, as a devoted swimmer (a HARMLESS sport, I thought!), am paying the price for spending all of my exercise time as a kid essentially weightless- my bone density is alarmingly low! Since we're damned if we do and damned if we don't, I say we just go for it. I'm so glad you get to pass this on to your kids!
Will certainly have to look into creating a sports hub soon. I will probably opt for Football (Soccer if you are American) as this is my favorite. Maybe i'll do a hub explaining the offside rule, to help the female hubbers out! LOL
*sigh* well I tried to post a hub of mine that I published on my other account. unfortunately, something went wrong. The good news is that it went through as one of the answers to this topic's question. The hub is about Arnis.
I wrote this hub about my first experience on an ice skating rink. Unfortunatelly I forgot how to post to weekly topic and I didn't fallow the procedure. Instead i just post it like any other hub. But I do want to share it here if I'm allowed. http://cameciob.hubpages.com/hub/How-to … s-an-adult
Thank you very much for this opportunity. I must preface this with the fact that I am the inventor and as such very biased.
I have always wanted a swimming companion. I love the water but the life jackets are simply no fun. The much loved aquatic noodles are a big hit for children and water aerobics but I wanted more so I invented a fun swim board which I have named EZ Swimmer.
It is also great for fitness and I am about to relaunch my website complete with fitness instructions to showcase the right and wrong positions for targeting toning with sit-ups, push downs, tricep dips and the like.
The seated balance works like a balance ball in the water and has also been called the sea horse because it really is like riding a sea horse.
Hey everyone! I have to say, I was totally floored by this week. I'm going to have to bring this topic back at some point again... I just learned so much form the Hubs y'all have published, and I bet some of them will do quite well in the long run!
Our new topic was recommended to me by AEvans, who was inspired in turn by Black History Month. We'll be Hubbing about important people, organizations, and developments in the history of business this month. I hope you'll join us!
