HubMob Weekly Topic: Christmas Around the world

    Hello everyone, we had a fun week with the body art hubmob, we managed a total of 29 hubs published on the topic. 

    We started the month with Halloween, followed by Thanksgiving and now we are going to finish with Christmas.  Three of the main yearly celebrations in North America.   

    Two weeks ago I was in Scotland and I was amazed to see that some shops had already started to prepare for Christmas.  It looks to me that every year the festive season comes earlier! So, before I get distracted by another fun topic for the hubmob I think this week we are going to prepare our hubs for Christmas so they have a good rank when Christmas comes.   Last year we had 56 HubMob hubs on Christmas, Lets see if we can break that record this year, come on HubMobsters show me we can break any record we want, we are the best!!!


    Some ideas for a HubMob hub on Christmas are:

    Christmas celebrations around the World
    Choosing Gifts
    Christmas Music
    Christmas Trees
    Decorations
    History
    Nativity
    Parades & Special Celebrations
    Religious Observance
    Santa Claus
    Christmas films
    Traditions

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

    1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK  Choose the Answer the Request green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

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

    3. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/24680/hubm … ew&rss

    4. 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.

    5. 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!

      Hi Princessa and all members of the Forum,

      I have made a Hub about Christmas - Nativity.  Every year I make a large Crib of papier-mache', and I've been doing this since I was a little boy.  My christmas is not complete without the crib and its clay figurines.  We decorate the home and put up a large Christmas Tree but I must also have the Crib, with Baby Jesus occupying the main Cave, some shepherds, the Magi, etc.

      Crib Figurines made of terracotta and blue clay:

    I really need to start on the hubmob again. It's been a while. I already did a a few holiday hubs. I'm working on a few more, but I opened the URLs before the hubmob was opened. Can I answer the request with a link to my hubs I'm working on now so that I don't have to start over? I've got two that are nearly finished.

    I missed the toy hubmob; I'd already done mine. Hopefully, I'll be able to add the holiday ones I'm working on this week to the hubmob.

    help someone. I am stuck in a capsule that will not do what I want.... I am trying to line up a sentence directly underneath the line above it. it will not let me place it directly on the next line, it keeps skipping two lines down. I have tried everything I know how to do before pulling my hair out. maybe I'll just skip Iceland!

    here is what it looks like now.

    Custom: The children decorate their homes with Christmas pockets and mouse stairs. Elves leaves gifts in the children's shoes on December 24. The first elf arrives on December 12 and the last one is gone by January 6.



    no matter what I try, I cannot place it directly underneath. what am I doing wrong? hmm

      Not sure about it, but have you tried using a table capsule instead of a text one.  I believe that might let you do what you want.  I have not used one yet, but it might work for what you want.

      The RSS feed on your hub does not appear to be working.  I did the same thing on my hub too.  Instead of copying and pasting the RSS feed out of the original post, click on it to open in a new window or tab.  Then copy the entire url for the RSS into your Hub module.

          The way I usually do it is to go to the REQUEST, then click on the RSS feed icon at the top and copy the URL address directly from there once the RSS appears on the page.  That seems to always work with no problem for me.

    Why doesn't the RSS feed update? Mine show the first 3 that have been published, but haven't changed from day one.

    Also, what about a Christmas themed hubmob logo?

    Last Halloween, we had a Halloween themed logo. Or has the themed logos stopped? Just easier to stick with the one. Are there other logos? Vertical? Etc. It's been a while since I've participated, I'm just curious if there are still the various logos.

    Nevermind, the RSS that Hup posted works, it just leaves the answer that has the posted link (but not a new hub) at the top, only updating those after it, which sucks.

      Hi Whitney, welcome back to the HubMob smile

      I think that the RSS feed takes a longer time to update now.  I am not sure how long but it takes much longer than what it used to be.

      As  for the Christmas logo, now we are just keeping to the one logo as the official HubMob logo.  Sometimes we have a specific one but it does not change with every topic as before.
