    Thanks to all the HubMobsters who took part in the Crafts & Handiwork HubMob, your contributions were outstanding.  Some of you made it to the front of the category page for Arts and Crafts, while others gained first place in Google's front pages.  Even more importantly, I believe that all of you had fun writing about your favourite crafts. 

    A big Hubbery round of applause to last week's most prolific HubMobster, our talented 16 year old Cam Anju who came up with 4 amazing Hubs on crafts. 


    With the arrival of the hottest months of the year in North America and Europe, most of us have embraced the Summer mood whole heartedly trying to make the most of the outdoors taking advantage of the good weather.  So with this in mind, this week we are going to hub about our favourite Summer products. Whether it is summer fruits or the latest technology available this season to make your Summer holidays more fun and comfortable we want to hear about it. 

    Please notice that I have put the request under the Fashion & Beauty category as most products are related to it, but please DO CHANGE the category according to the product that you choose to write about. 

    Some ideas for Summer products are:

    Outdoor living : furniture, garden kitchens, swimming  pools, sunshades
    Suntan lotions
    Waterproof makeup
    Summer ready made: drinks, foods, snacks
    Sun glasses
    Summer musical hits
    Hair styling products for summer
    Skin care products for summer
    Summer holydays "must items"
    Summer footwear
    Summer fashion
    New technologies coming out this summer
    New books coming out this Summer



    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. Change the category for your hub according to your content.

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/request/16243/?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
    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.

          Hi hub mobsters;) I've opted for a hub on sustainable summer footwear. Plastic shoes arent too famous with most people especially in the summer months, but new and innovative technologies seem to make them much more user and eco freindly.

  24. An Archigirl profile image59
    An Archigirlposted 8 years ago

    The first I heard this phrase  was when I watched the movie slumdog millionaire. The lead guy was called a chai wallah, so  I guess 'wallah' must be a derogatory reference to  or perhaps just the name for a helper. Maybe theres a hubber out there who knows more on the subject.

    1. Princessa profile image84
