    Good morning HubMobsters


    We are starting a new week with 34 HubMobs on last week's topic:St Patrick's Day


    http://i41.tinypic.com/14t51kn.jpg


    An amazing body of work with some very interesting, informative, entertaining and even touching hubs.   A big round of applause for all the HubMobsters who took part on last week's HubMob.  The best thing is that we all had great fun writing and reading about St. Patrick.  Let's continue the fun and don't forget to keep us all updated with your HubMob's traffic and Google's success stories, we love to hear about your success!



    This week I am dedicating the HubMob to Ryan Hupfer, our communicator of awesomeness.  For those of you who don't know it yet, Ryan has recently become engaged and he is soon getting married.  If you want to check on the latest developments of Hup's weddings plans, you can check his blog. He is so awesome that some people even think that Ryan and Bride are fictional characters!

    So, the HubMob topic for this week is: Weddings.  Let's help Ryan and his beautiful bride to make their wedding day one of the best days of their life. 

    Some ideas for a hub on the topic are:
    -        best proposals,
    -        best places to get married,
    -        how to organize a wedding on a tight budget,
    -        luxurious weddings, weddings abroad.
    -        Wedding dresses/hairstyles/make up
    -     Wedding cakes, invitations, decorations, favours
    -       Honeymoon places
    -       Wedding presents: the best, the original, the worst, the cheapest, the weirdest.
    -       Traditional weddings, foreign weddings, themed weddings.
    -       Unusual wedding ceremonies/places/outfits
    -       Why should I get married?  Best time to get married? How to avoid getting married! 



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


    1. Come up with an amazing idea related to the main topic: Weddings.  Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it.   

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters.

    3.Choose a relevant title for your HubMob and feel free to use the tags that I suggested and add your own tags.  To get a good ranking in the search engines make sure that your title is relevant to your hub content and AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. Write an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea.

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub:

    5. Add the HubMob image specially made by ProCW for the occasion 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!

    7. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keywords over on Google.

    Yep, that's about it - have fun writing your HubMob Hub this week and please let us all know if you have any questions. Have fun, you crazy HubMobsters. smile

I was also surprised with a fantasy medieval themed 16th birthday party, which was totally the best thing ever. I am never, ever going to forget the sight of my staid and dignified father dressed up in wizard's robes and a white beard to his waist. lol

    So although my specialized hub on wedding expense etiquette for the parents of the groom wasn't an "official" response to the hubmob topic request, it would appreciate the hublove!

    Let's see if I can sneek one in before this hubmob topic is over. I'm probably not your average hubber- it usually takes me several days to research, formulate, and write a hub.

    When is the topic over?

      That's still a wedding.  In fact, I did that once.  I think it's a unique slant, there's still things that have to be done to prepare that people would want to know about.

      Of course, it's just my personal opinion, but I say go for it!

    Shirley, I've already got one on our honeymoon to Hawaii, but again it wasn't an official answer to Princessa's request. Oh well.

    I also have building a bigger "collection" of wedding hubs these days smile But I wouldn't submit them to hubmob anyway, because they're too specialized and wouldn't get many votes.

    Which is why I'm writing a wedding-related hub on a topic that I think will get more votes than my more specialized hubs. Can't wait to have it published!

    1. Shirley Anderson profile image81
      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Ohhh, sounds great!  Can't wait to see what it's about!

      Are you sure you don't want to rewrite some of those hubs using a different angle?  Do you have anything for wedding invitations?  That is apparently a good keyword.

      You can use the weekly weddings graphic, and/or either of the two original graphics in your hubmobs. The graphic(s) are done so that your hub is identifiable as a hubmob, so as long as you use at least one of them, it's fine. smile

    Princessa, I didn't recognize you!!  I like your new pic a lot!

    What happened to the wedding graphic?  Is it my computer or has it disappeared?

      Thanks Shirley, I like changing, that picture was taken a few weeks ago during a "straight hair day" smile

      The wedding graphic is still showing all right in my screen...

    Princessa, thanks for sharing the info about Tom Brady's wedding. Personally I don't care for the guy because of what he's said in the past about women and marriage, but it's pretty sweet that they used animals in their wedding. And with designer clothes, no less!

    I also love your new photo!

    And Shirley, from where I sit your hair looks pretty straight to me! Of course the hat blocks some of it, but it still looks pretty straight.

      I'm hiding the curls under the hat.  Of course, I'll have a nasty case of helmet head, come St. Paddy's Day!
