A big thanks to all of you who took part in last week's HubMob.
We are starting this week in a more festive mood -after all Summer is almost here! Welcome the BBQs, picnics, baseball, outdoors concerts and of course for the Americans, their big day celebration, the 4th of July. Yes, this week's HubMob topic is 4th of July celebrations.
If like me, you are not American or you do not live in America, but still want to take part in this week's HubMob, don't worry, there are plenty of hub ideas to become a HubMobster. You can take the topic as easy or as serious as you want, anything is valid, from BBQ recipes to historical accounts.
Some ideas for a HubMob hub are:
4th of July Fireworks
4th of July Parades
4th of July Concerts
4th of July baseball games
4th of July crafts and games for children
4th of July decorations
Best places to visit in North America the 4th of July
4th of July celebrations in USA, for example, the America's Freedom Festival at Provo, in Utah, and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York City.
Barbecues and picnics.
Political speeches and ceremonies.
The American Revolution
United States Declaration of Independence
The political impact of American independence
The economic impact of American Independence
Major 4th of July displays held around the world, for example the 4th of July weekend festival for Danish-Americans in Denmark.

4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/request/13176/?new&rss
5. Add the HubMob graphic 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.
For those who 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.
This is going to be a fun topic! I ahred three good memories of the past.
Hello Princessa and JamaGenee! The 4th of July can be a LOT of fun and different at the same time. So I loved writing this one. I look forward to everyone else's this week!
Not really Cindy, come on... I am not American neither, in fact I am a bit of everything (A born in Peru British citizen living in France, married to a Scotsman with children born in Spain...) I could hardly get patriotic about a country.
I am sure most of us non-North Americans will find a subject for this topic ;-)
Okay, have to put on my Canadian thinking cap for this one. I was only in the States once on July 4th and I didn't notice anything at all going on.
Haha - you could write about the 1976 200th anniversary of July 4th and the 200 Elvis impersonators at the Staute of Liberty.
Here are some 4th of July topics suggested by Ryan:
- Fireworks safety
- History of 4th of july
- 4th of July Costumes
- 4th of July traditions
- 4th of july cake ideas or other recipes
- great outdoor games for 4th of july
Aha! The 4th of July and Independence Day are the same thing. I thought so!
I don't want to plagairise (okay, outright steal) your title but I may be back to beg for it.
here is my contribution http://hubpages.com/hub/Canada-Day-July-1st
My fireworks safety hub.
I hope you like this one :
just for fun
Okay Princessa, I did it. Not my best, but 4th of July? Come on, I'm an African, what else could I have done....http://hubpages.com/hub/Whats-so-special-about-the-4th-of-July
I knew you would come up with something good Cindy
I am working on mine just now, I hope to finish it in the next hour or so.
By the way, any favourite topics for next week?
You did great! I wondered what fun hubs might be spurred by this topic, as we have a collection of great hubbers from all over the world. I recommend this read!
I had a poli-sci prof. who asked us to talk about September 11th, then scolded us for not taking into consideration that MANY historical events have occurred on Sept 11th - some resulting in much more innocent bloodshed. He did this not to minimize the tragedy of "our" 9/11, but to remind us that there is a bigger world out there.
This same guy also taught us not to refer to ourselves as "Americans" because we are only inhabiting a chunk of America and to just claim the whole of the Americas as our own is quite arrogant.
I wish more were like him, because I think a lot of people perpetuate the "typical American" stereotypes (as outlined in the hilarious map in Cindy's hub) without malice - just ignorance b/c they have not been challenged to think outside of the box they were taught to reside in.
Okay, the hub is loaded and live:
Celebrate July 4th with this Independence Day HubMob
my hub was published 3 hours ago and now it's on the first page on google for Political bloopers
I love HP
mmmm topics? maybe I have some suggestions but I dunno if it has been already used in the hubmob (or it suits the hubmob):
-Supernatural powers (telepathy, psychokinesis, etc) and may be experiences, too!
-Computer designing and graphics (photoshop, 3Dmax, tutorials, how tos, etc)
-Maybe something scientific or some kind of a simplified science like : the history of communications, How satellites/mobiles work, understanding genetic codes or how out bodies function (how do we hear, talk,walk,see, etc)
-Learning a new language.
-Something about sports may be football, basketball.
These are just some suggestions...I hope they help a little to inspire you.
Thanks for the ideas Mezo
Anyone else has a fav. topic?
Oooh, I really like all of those ideas. Especially the science & supernatural ones!!
-Road Trips/Camping Trips - could include campfire recipes, safety tips, best places, campfire stories, survival tips, best roadtrip playlists, etc
-Best/worst/most embarrassing/unbelievable/etc. summer tale
-Robots..elaborate at will
Sorry, Cindy! Your url isn't linked and I missed it. I'll go add it now.
Here is my try at the topic: A fashion orientated 4th of July, http://hubpages.com/hub/Wearing-the-American-Flag
I'll be writing something and it will center on the first two lines of the declaration. Mainly it will focus on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I found a few web sites that have great crafts for the kids and recipes for everyone to spice up the celebrations.

For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that they play in the lives of others around me. So, this HubMob is basically a way for...
