Thank you to everyone who contributed to last week's Welsh HubMob, the response was amazing, 47 hubs published in a week.
Most of us who were not familiar with Wales and its enormous influence to the USA and worldwide culture in general, have learnt a few things last week. Hopefully your hubs will bring awareness to the importance of Wales and its people. Thank you for your Hubs HubMobsters!
The special mention for last week's HubMob goes to Ethel Smith who contributed with 12 awesome hubs on the topic. You are an amazing lady Ethel, we wish you all the best and a prompt recovery when you go for your eye surgery.
This week we are staying in the UK but crossing the sea to another beautiful country, Ireland. In a week we are going to be entering the Irish-American Heritage month and this year we are going to join in the celebrations by writing not only about St Patrick but about everything Irish including the contributions the Irish have made to the growth and development of the USA. This is a very wide topic, so again I am going to be asking you to take special attention when you categorize your hub. I will be making the question under St. Patrick's day but please make sure that you choose a category that best suits your hub's content.
Some ideas for a St. Patrick and everything Irish HubMob hub are:
St Patrick's day
Celebrating Irish American heritage month
US presidents with Irish Origins
Interesting Irish facts
Travelling in Ireland
Traditional Irish food
Traditional Irish dress
Famous Irish writers

If you 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! Great hubmob topic! My hub is on the real St. Patrick and how he influenced the people of Ireland.

St. Patrick continued! Found a lot of detail and "scary" stories for this one, mostly from contemporary biographies.
My hub for this week:
I'm a little late publishing my hub but it's my first hubmob topic. Hope you like it!
I have an older St. Patrick's Day hub. I guess I can't post it?
Sorry Dolores, but older hubs cannot be included The reason being your hub has to be started by answering this week's question above(#1 You must start the hub by clicking on the link). Princessa usually suggests that an individual write another hub here and then reference a link to your original hub. Hope this helps!
Hey,I have created a hub about modern Irish films... http://hubpages.com/hub/Modern-Irish-Films

Happy St. Patrick's Day
I dont think I could do any more than what I have on my Hub irelands love affair with America can I just add the rss feed...I am not being lazy...I want to join in but would simply be repeating myself...does that sound ok
You can add the RSS feed to your hub, but unfortunately your hubs canot be added to the RSS feed if they are not started answering my request
Come on... surely you can come up with something new; love is inspiration ;-)
Irish, maybe you can write a little something about some American icons that the Irish like, if that's true. It doesn't have to be anything long, like do the Irish like pizza? etc. Anyway, I'm sounding silly, just a thought.
There is nothing better than a traditonal Irish stew: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Make-an- … Irish-Stew
Thsi is a wonderful topic that lots of people can target in HubMob writing. I've enjoyed all of the Hubs so far! Here's one from me -

Hi, I've added a hub -

Here is my post. Waterford Crystal is made in Waterford County, Ireland. I chose this topic because Waterford Crystal is some of the most absolutely beautiful crystal and glassware ever made. Many world class sports trophies are Waterford and the Times Square Ball lower every New Year's Eve is Waterford Crystal.
I hope you enjoy this Hub. I know it did!

Don't forget to check who is already featuring in the "British holidays" category page: http://hubpages.com/topics/holidays-and … idays/2634
Also let us know if your hub makes it to Google's first page. Don't be shy and share your success with all of us.
For those of us who are still novices at all of this, I’m pasting 2 really helpful hubs by Darkside.
This one is on selecting tags and keywords for your hubs, and the impact:
Tagging Your HubPages
Great info in this hub, my interpretation: If you type in the exact name of your hub, of course it will come up on page 1, likely number 1. But what reader besides your mother is going to type in your exact title? Type those same words into Google AdWords, and you’ll likely get the phrase “Not enough data”, meaning, no one is really doing that search.

Here's my first one for this week - Thanks, Princessa, for this great topic.
http://hubpages.com/hub/St-Patricks-Day … les-Houses
I have posted a HubMob about Saint Patrick the Patron Saint of Ireland. I wanted to learn about his life and share it with everyone.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Saint-Patrick-P … eland?done
I have written a hub about The Quiet Man starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. It's a family classic, full of comedy, love, fights and good 'ole Irish blarney. Additionally I would love to see Maureen win a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Oscars for which there is a current campaign.

Since we're already at 32 hubs, I'm going to predict that we will need 2 roundup hubs. I'm trying something new this time. I'm working on 2 hubs, and will divide your hubs between the 2. Among other things, this makes keyword selection a little less schizophrenic for me! Here are my titles, unless I change my mind:
St. Patrick’s Day Events, Traditional Irish Food, and All Things Irish! Your HubMob Index of Hubs
Irish American Heritage, Irish History & Culture, and All Things Irish! Your HubMob Index of Hubs
The first will have any hub with St. Patrick or St. Patrick's Day in the title, and any food or beverage hub. The second hub will have everything else. I hope to have one done tonight and the other tomorrow. And/or I may get them out to you initially without the poll capsule as it is slooooowwwww. Both should be published and complete by tomorrow evening.
Here's my contribution to the HubMob!

http://hubpages.com/hub/Irish-Music-The … in-english
Read about some general irish/celtic music heritage in america and canada. some video links supplied, but it's more fun to explore on your own to see what suits you. There is some reference to other hubs I've written in better detail, but like I said, this is basically irish musical history 101.
Here is the 1st of 2 St. Patrick's/Irish HubMob roundup hubs. The 2nd should be published by tomorrow evening.
