Y’all posted some fantastic Hubs when our WTI theme was useful kitchen tools and gadgets, so I thought we might play with that general subject again, but this time focus on consumer electronics and personal gadgets. What device can’t you live without? If it’s something fresh and surprising (you don’t want to write a Hub on a subject that has already been covered extensively online), write a Hub about it this week!
Again, I recommend adding the Ratings Capsule to this Hub and providing a single person rating (or a multiple person rating, if you want your readers to submit their own star ratings). This adds value to product-centric Hubs and makes them more attractive in search engine results. If you decide to add Amazon/eBay Capsules, do so with great care and moderation (I recommend featuring no more than two or three products total).
Don’t have a particular Hub in mind? Here are some search-friendly titles to consider using:
New Technology Gadgets that will Change Your Life
The Best Electronic Gadgets for Men
Cool Tech Gadgets for _____ (Moms, Kids, Teens, Students...)
Real Spy Gadgets
Cool Spy Gadgets Anyone Can Buy
Cool Gadgets for Men
The X Best Gadgets for Men
__________: The Ultimate Geek Gadget
How to Keep Track of the Latest Gadgets
Five Noteworthy New Electronic Gadgets
New Tech Gadgets that will Blow Your Mind
To create search-friendly titles of your own, follow the steps outlined in this Learning Center guide.
If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
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.
For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.
Oh, and do you want your WTI Hub to have a shot at becoming a Hub of the Day? Make sure the images are legally used and properly attributed!
By the time I have finished reading this week's topic inspiration post, I know what should I write .
Here it is, I hope you guys will like it:

This is fabulous! Might I recommend switching out the generic Amazon devices you included and manually inputting the specific products you mentioned, complete with custom descriptions? This will make that capsule much more relevant- and people will be far more likely to actually click through (and perhaps purchase) those items!
I liked all the gadgets. Very nice coverage of some really helpful tools.
The personal gadget that I cannot live without is the Homedics Cordless Rechargeable Pedicure Tool. I live in California, where flip flops and strappy sandals are the norm... even in the wintertime. So, here is the review of the gadget that makes my day: http://marleneb.hubpages.com/t/32813b
I have a wife who nags me when I neglect my toenails. I wouldn't actually call her a gadget but she is pretty cool.
This is fabulous, MarleneB! Be sure to add a Ratings Capsule (single person setting) to include a star rating of the product- it'll show up in search engine results and give this great Hub an edge.
Personally I'd say the internet was the most life changing electronic invention for me...will think up of the gadget hub
Must say I was inspired. Fastest hub I've ever done.
Cool Spy Gadgets Anyone Can Buy
http://cashmere.hubpages.com/hub/Cool-S … n-Buy?done
The coolest hub on the planet right now. I really enjoyed reading about all the gadgets.
Ooooh, I love this! I was really hoping someone would use that title. I love the hidden camera hook!
'If you decide to add Amazon/eBay Capsules, do so with great care and moderation (I recommend featuring no more than two or three products total)"
If this advice is based on solid stats around Panda-hit sub-domains it might be worth making a bigger thing of it. In fact, it might be worth putting this warning into Amazon and eBay capsules.
That's not a bad idea. But in the meantime, cashmere provides a really great example of these capsules being used correctly. She carefully selected the items she featured, and each of them is directly related to the subject matter of her Hub. What's more, she provided a custom description for each one. That's just the sort of use we're pushing for.
I would have loved the cool spy gadgets, but I know a little bit about music gadgets, so I wrote this one instead...

Here is my weekly topic inspiration hub....

Okay, bit nervous about this. First time have taken part in this. Constructive feedback appreciated. Note the word constructive!!!
Wow, electronic gadget huh? Well, i'm still thinking on that one lol! I do however have a topic for you all to consider as a potential WTI in the future! It's Disaster Preparedness. Ways to prepare yourself, home, property and/or family for hurricane/tornado/tsunami/monsoon/blizzard season. With the weather getting more radical each year, i think advice on this subject could help everyone! Thanks in advance for the consideration.
I guess I forgot to post my WTIs here. Got inspired for two Hubs - my packs-a-punch digital camera and my husband's pedometer. Here are the links, one by one:
My Favorite Gadget is my Cheap Compact Digital Camera
http://eurocafeaulait.hubpages.com/hub/ … tal-Camera
and hubby's: The Versatile Pedometer, a Gadget for Work and Play
http://eurocafeaulait.hubpages.com/hub/ … k-and-Play
We use them both everyday and they've certainly changed our lives.
These were awesome Hubs, y'all!
We're moving from gadgets to autos this week. Our latest theme: driving rules and regulations! We all have to work with them (even folks like me who avoid driving), so we all have something to share! I hope you'll join in.
