Good morning everyone. To start this week I want to thank all the HubMobsters who took part in last week's Hubmob. It was a difficult topic but we managed a total of 47 published hubs on Domestic Violence. I noticed that for some HubMobsters it was a therapeutic week where you managed to put in words what you had inside you for many years. Let's hope that the personal accounts, the advice and hope reach those people who are in need of support. Thanks you for such great contributions to a worthy cause.
When we talk about domestic violence immediately we think about men abusing women, but as we read in some hubs last week, domestic violence also happens the other way round and men can also be the victims and survivors of it. This week we are going to Hub about a lighter topic. We are going to cherish the men in our lives because although most of the domestic abuse is perpetrated by men there many others that are understanding and supportive. Those men deserve all our respect and this week we are going to hub about them. This is the time to write about appreciating your man, showing love and respect to the men in your life whether is your son, your father, husband a relative or friend.
Let's write about those issues that worry our men, like men's roles and social pressures. What it means to become a man in your culture. It is also a topic for all male HubMobsters to write about their male perspectives on different issues such as being a father, a husband, and a role model. It would also be interesting to read about male perspectives on body image and confidence. Our female HubMobsters who have experience bringing up boys can write about boys and teenagers and communication issues.
Other ideas for a Men's hub can draw back on last week's topic and you can write about the other side of the story where men are involved in abusive relationships, them being the victims. On la lighter mood more ideas for a HubMob hub include dating tips and safe sex.
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. If necessary, change the category of your hub to a category that describes best the subject you are writing about.
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 and have fun writing your hubs!
that's so ironic. i just published a hub today about an abusive relationship, although i categorized it as creative writing... and just published one about taking "him" for granted. This is my first visit to HUBMOBSTERS, but I think I was definitely meant to roll with you guys. I'm excited to begin writing on the topics at hand and being a true "hubmobster" I always knew I was gangsta....
Not at all, we want to hear about men this week, we want to know things like What it means to become a man in your culture? We want to read about male perspectives and views on different issues such as being a father, a husband and a role model. We also want to read about what men think about body image, dating and confidence.
This is Men's week !!!! Let's have fun Come on "He HubMobsters" we want to hear your voices!
Which graphic or are you talking about the rss feed? The graphic for the hubmob I saved as a pic to my file and then pulled it from that file in a photo capsule and for the rss feed there is a button for that and you copy and past the url of the rss into the appropriate box. I hope that helped.
Thank you so much Lynne. I had brain fade - perhaps its because I've done all this activity and its before breakfast! I did what you suggested re the hubmob graphic and I now have it on my desktop for the next HubMob. The image seems a bit small though. Off now for food.
Hello again Sorry....but more advice please. At the bottom of my hubmob there is a comment to say "this does not appear to be a valid RSS feed". I have never used RSS feeds before - why do I have that message?
I found that happens when I use the link here in this thread so instead I click on the link and then copy the url in the search bar at the top of the screen and paste that one into the url slot on the rss feed form.
Hhhhhm, looks like someone is having fun. I try not to read the hubs until I finish my own hub about the topic, however this week I may have to change my rule. I see a lot of hot topics about my favorite subject- "men"...
So far everything I've thought about would be "R" rated so I've got to come up with something to talk about with a "G" rating. LOL!
I have had second thoughts - I don't think its fair to jump on the bandwagon if I'm really not writing about the same topic as the rest of the hubmob. I'll just publish my hub as usual. Will give the hubmob a skip this week.
You're never too late, Laura. Several months ago, we were given the go-ahead to add hubs at any time. So, in that regard, you can publish whenever and still get into the HubMob hub. The only thing is, if you don't let me know that you've written a hub after the fact, I won't know to find the old thread and come pick up the link for adding.
