    Hello everybody, hope you had a great weekend; mine was literally "heavenly" as I spent my weekend doing the three things that I absolutely adore: partying, sunbathing and parachuting!  Nothing better to start the week than having spent a couple of days doing what you like the most.  So after a controversial week with 22 entries for last week's  LGBT issues HubMob, this week is going to be a week about YOU.  Yes, this week's topic is YOUR hobbies and interests.


    Tell us all about your favourite things, your idea of a blissful time, whether it is a calm afternoon reading a book in your garden or surfing wild waves on the ocean.  We all want to hear about your hobby, we all want to know what makes you "tick".  Give us some tips, share your most amazing moments, introduce us to an unknown form of entertainment, tell us why are you interested in your hobby, the benefits and drawbacks and how to get started.  This is the week to share your passion with the world!

    Some ideas for a HubMob hub are:

    Collecting: stamps, coins, dolls, photos.
    Dance as a hobby.
    Sports you love watching or doing.
    Arts and crafts
    Gardening
    Singing. Are you part of a chorus?  Do you sing or play in a band?
    Model building
    Juggling
    Amateur astronomy
    Reading
    Writing
    Cooking
    Extreme sports
    Photography

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

    1. CLICK THIS LINK and answer the Request.

    2. Choose a relevant title for your HubMob to get a good ranking in the search engines, make your title relevant to your hub content and AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. If necessary change the category for your hub according to your content.

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub:
    http://hubpages.com/request/14598/?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.
    http://i43.tinypic.com/rup3mg.jpg

    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 have fun writing your HubMob Hub



    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.

    1. Princessa profile image84
      Princessaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Hi, you can copy the graphic to your computer and then use it from there. Once saved to your PC just search in your computer from the photo capsule, et voila!

      I hope that helps smile

    I'm a newbie here at HubPages.  Think I'll try this HubMob thing.  I love to knit, so why not.  How do I add the rss feed?

    1. Shirley Anderson profile image77
      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Hi, DoodleLyn!  Easy as pie to add the RSS feed.  Add an RSS capsule to your hub, copy and paste the feed link that Princessa put in the first post of this thread, click save.  Voila!

      You have a couple of options that you can change.  You can choose how many titles show.  The default is 3 but many people choose 8.  Go with how ever many you want.  You can also pick between full description, shortened description and first sentence being displayed.  Just play around with the options until you find a layout you like.

      Does that help?

    OK, it's done and posted.  I tried pasting the hubmob logo to my computer, then calling it up through the picture link, but it couldn't read it.  Is it because I have a Mac, and if so, how can I get the hubmob logo?

    I would also like to add some pictures from the internet, but had the same problem.  Hence, I have lots of text that could use some spacing.

            RedElfposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Thanks, Shirley - you guys are pretty amazing too.
            Hub Pages has been a real life line for me. Usually I just crawl in a hole and pull it in after me. "Usually" ha! sounds like I've had lots of practice, lol - well, some, sad but not tons, smile
            I was told I should try to journal about it all, but that has never appealed to me. Too much like navel gazing, I guess. To my mind, even pain needs to produce something useful, else what good is what we go through?.
            I take some time off to scream and kick the walls, and then I write some more. The discipline of writing for others, rather than just blatting it all out, helps me maintain some perspective and keep going.
            ...and thanks so much for your kind support. I really appreciate it. smile

              I think that's proof that you'll make it through and be stronger on the other side.  You're being constructive in spite of (because of?) the pain.  I'm glad that you let it out, though.

              Okay, I'll stop publicly discussing your personal life.  Let me know if I can help. smile

        Shirley Andersonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Oh!  Anjalic, I am SO sorry!  I will fix it right away where I can.  The only place it may be a problem is in the poll.  If anyone has voted and I make a change, it erases the votes.  So, if it's still on the poll, that means I couldn't change it.

        Thanks so much for letting know.  I must stop doing these late at night!
