    Welcome to a new week and to a new topic HubMobsters.  Last week we managed to do 29 hubmob hubs on women's health, which means that we did 4 more than the previous week for the men's health hubmob.  Well done HubMobsters, a big hubbery hug to all of you. 

    Special mention to the 4 most prolific HubMobsters last week:   

    RedElf with an amazing 6 entries, kerryg, anath and simple Tim  each of them with 3 hubmob hubs to their name. 

    This week we are going to write about marriage, whether to encourage or discourage our HubMob creator Ryan Hupfer who is tying the knot in a few weeks, this is the time to give Hup a few tips for a happy ever after.

    Some ideas for a hub on marriage can be:  

    Anniversaries
    Arranged Marriages
    Bridging Two Cultures
    Children, First Child
    Compromise
    Dating Your Spouse
    Green Cards & Visas for foreign brides/grooms
    Happy Marriage
    Intimacy & Romance
    Mail Order Brides
    Marriage Counselling
    Newlyweds
    Prenuptial Agreements
    Second Marriage
    Staying Best Friends
    Unconventional Marriages

    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/17739/?new

    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 
    You can also add the HubChallenge graphic to your hub and create a hubmob/hubchallenge hub.  http://i29.tinypic.com/2565x14.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.

      First time I've ever answered a HubMob request! I have always love Jane Austen's books, and thought I'd write about what we can learn from the marriages in her book, which she has portrayed with wit and insight into human character. I hope it's okay to post this link here! I didn't see anywhere else to put it. Thanks! smile

    Hi Princessa. Glad to hear you're okay. I'd like to join but I have one teeny-weeny question. Do I create first the hub before clicking on the link to answer?

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

      Hi, thanks.

      First you go to:
      -step 1 ANSWER THE REQUEST and choose the option ANSWER THIS REQUEST.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option and start creating your hub.  Choose a tittle, URL and format. 

      - step 2,  you can write your hub. 

      I hope this helped smile

    Second: CONGRATULATIONS Hup!!!!

    I completely missed out on last week's HubMob due to a LOT of family issues (head lice, chicken pox, had to switch pediatricians, broken TV & computer...) but I am looking forward to participating this week.  I am fast approaching my one year wedding anniversary so I hope I can contribute something useful : )

      Princessaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You have time until Sunday evening to finish it.  I think it is not a very good idea to publish and unfinished hub.  You can save it unpublished and come back to it later if you want.

    This is my first hubmob entry and what a great topic to start with.  My hub is at:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Stay-At-Home-Mother

    I am a father of two with one on the way.  My wife is a stay-at-home mother and an amazing woman.  It took us both several months to understand what a stay-at-home mother really meant and what was needed in our marriage to strengthen her desire and survive the stress.  This hub looks at what I have learned as a husband over the last three years.  Hopefully it will help others.

  16. Shirley Anderson profile image78
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    The hub is done:  HubMob of Marriage Classes

    I'm thinking of the hub contributions as mini marriage classes.  That means that all you HubMobsters are marriage councellors. smile

  17. Eaglekiwi profile image80

    Just a quick question about how the RSS  feed thingy  , I included it in my hub , but does it automatically keep updating ( to include others) ?
    Sorry just never used it before ,its quite impressive lol

    1. Shirley Anderson profile image78
      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, Eaglekiwi, the RSS feed automatically updates to include all the hubs that were put through the "Answer this hub" link.

    Oh man there are a million and one hub ideas I could write on the topic smile Again another weekly hubmob topic that is right up my alley and I'm already enthralled by another project sad

    Do hubs on engagement rings count? Otherwise I'll have to pass on another hubmob topic because I'm too busy research and writing other hubs.

    I wrote a hub for this for the HubMob, but forgot to click to answer before writing it. Can I still use it? How do I do that?

  30. DoodleLyn profile image80
    DoodleLynposted 8 years ago

    OK, I messed up with the first one, and forgot to click on "answer" before writing it, so here's another. This time, I followed instructions! Here it is

  31. Shirley Anderson profile image78
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    The hub has been updated:  HubMob of Marriage Classes

    DoodleLyn, you have 2 options for that first hub.  You can either delete the first one (you'll lose the url) and republish, going through the "Answer" link or you can rewrite using a different slant to produce another hub to use for the answer.

    Sorry, that's probably not what you wanted to hear.

    May I ask how many hours are left for us to publish marriage hubs? I'm in a different time zone than the US so I'm not really sure what is the time there right now. At a guess, I'd say it's around 5 AM (Sunday) in San Francisco right now?

    *sigh* Unfortunately it's past 10 in the evening here. I was hoping I can churn out another marriage hub but I became busy with another hub smile. Oh well, it was fun joining the Hubmob for the week. Thanks for all the help Princessa. Looking forward to the next topic and hope I can also participate by then.
