Hello everyone are we ready for an exciting month? We are finishing April with a successful Fifa World Cup Hubmob weekly topic and we are ready to start a new month and team up with the Eat, Drink, and Be Hubbalicious Contest, beginning on Tuesday, June 1st.
Like every week we are going to follow the same rules for the HubMob except that those of you who qualify and want to participate in the contest will need to post your hubs within a very strict time frame. Every eligible Hub, published on the right topic, categorized correctly and published within the given time frame, will be automatically eligible for the contest. If you want to enter your HubMob Hub in the contest please read carefully the Contest Rules.
If you don't qualify for the contest, nothing changes for you; you just follow the steps below like any other week.
This week set subtopics for the contest include:
Beans and Pulses or Rice and Grains Cheese & Dairy Herbs and Spices or Extracts and Flavouring Meat and Poultry or Seafood Fruits or Vegetables Baking Supplies or Doughs and Crusts or Leaveners and Yeast Condiments or Vinegars or Oils & Shortenings
You must write information about the above subtopics. Do not write recipes as we will have another week for recipes only. This time you are asked to write only about ingredients: storage, nutritional value, where to find them, how to choose them, what they are used for, etc.
Remember that if you are taking part in the contest you MUST post your hub on the specific day for the subtopic you are writing for.
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"
I chose to write initially about pulses and beans.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Dried-Beans-One … iest-Foods This hub is about the nourishment of beans including general facts about reasons to increase you bean intake, the best way to store beans and how they prevent diseases. Also, I listed the states where most beans are grown.
Hi Ms Sandy, you can follow the instructions of Ms Princessa -- the first post in this forum thread -- and start your hub by answering the link provided by Ms Princessa. In that way your hub is included in the HUBMOB as well as the contest.
Dont hesitate to ask if you have any more questions and probs.
Thanks. It looks like I messed up for this week. I am keeping the RSS for the hubbers who add to HubMob in my first recipe hub. I think I will join the contest another time. But I hope to find some hubbers visiting my recipe hubs.
I published a hub but did it from the contest page instead, so I think I'm not eligible. I thought to be eligible for the contest you had to do it from the contest page . . . or am I totally confused? http://hubpages.com/hub/Wild-Rice
If you want your hub to be both HubMob and Contest, you need to start from Princessa’s link on her initial post each week of the contest. Princessa has preselected the weekly topic, in this case, Cooking Ingredients. You must select the appropriate daily topic, and not publish until noon or after California time. Jason pulls eligibles from the hubs published on the daily topic, published in the 24 hour time frame. He has answered this question in his thread.
I suggest you regularly read Jason’s contest thread, as well as this one. You will most likely find the answers to all of your questions.
Hi! I am also a newbie here in HP (just joined a few weeks ago). And just like classical geek, I'm also not exactly sure if I joined the contest right or not but I tried to post my 1st hub about lentils for this month thru the contest page.
So if I don't need to be in the Hubmob to be in the hubbalicious contest (as what habee said), then I probably did my entry right. Still, I'm not so sure. Anyone help pls?
Hi, It is good if you can join the HUBMOB and contest at the same time! You can do this by just following the instructions here in the first post by Ms Princessa in this forum thread, be sure to properly categorize your hub and submit it in the time frame as stated in the contest page http://hubpages.com/topics/food/1491/
I check the RSS feed for the HUBMOB and you are not included, you're right! HUBMOB Rss feed -- http://hubpages.com/question/53114/hubm … ew&rss -- you can also answer the question in this link -- answer it by making a hub --
dont hesitate to ask if you have any questions again, Good luck!
I joined the HUBMOB! Now on to figure out the rest of the directions for the contest hub. lol. I will submit soon. I hope to learn much from all of you very experienced Hubbers. Having a lot of fun reading your hubs. Making me hungry...
barry, I think there will be a clock posted for everyone to figure out their times to publish.
during the last contest I downloaded the firefox world clock add-on and it can be customized for whatever country, time zone you need. it's at the bottom of the screen, so I can glace and see what time it is in CA, and other places I choose. I even have australia, and it's Tues. 12:35 p.m. now in S. Australia, yes?
I agree, the timing is confusing. It's a little easier here in the U.S. I know that my contest day runs 2 pm to 1:59 pm the next day. Last time there was a single contest forum thread, but HP staff announced each day, 'the new topic started about 40 min ago', or something similar. This time, there will be a new thread each day, launched at noon (California time, US Pacific time), with the clue of the day. You could follow Jason's forum posts to make sure you are not launching prematurely.
As long as you start your hubs from Princessa's forum link, you will be in the HubMob RSS feed. I work from the RSS when I do the roundup hub.
Why I chose to write about Garbanzo beans is that all my life had chickpeas as part of my diet but never knew they were called garbanzo beans untill I read them on the bean sections of the grocery during my stay abroad. So dedicating this to old wine in new bottle, I guess.
Explore vegetarian cooking and learn about satisfying bean dishes. Great information on the benefits of beans from Romancing the Bean, by Joanne Saltzman. Overview of some of Joanne’s great recipes for bean dishes.
You're all set! You are in the HubMob RSS feed, you have the HM graphic and RSS in your hub. You are categorized correctly, and well within the time frame for the grain topic. Looks like you're a go for HubMob and the contest.
cupid, Looks like you started your hub from Princessa's link, because your hub is in the HubMob RSS, so you are in the HubMob. You need to add the HubMob graphic and a HubMob RSS capsule to your hub. See Princessa's hub on the graphic and RSS:
You're in the RSS feed, you have the HubMob graphic and RSS capsule, so you're in the HubMob. Your hub is also categorized correctly and seems to have been published before noon PT today, so you should also be contest eligible.
When you start your hub from Princessa's link, you have joined the HubMob. Most HubMobster come back to the forum and post a link to their hub. I pull from the RSS to do the roundup hub, so even if you don't post in the forum, you will still be in the roundup.
I loooovvveee garlic, so I wrote about some of the common varieties that people can use in their cooking. I listed these varieties from very mild to strong, so people get an idea of where to start trying them. If you've only ever tried elephant garlic (which isn't really a true garlic), check this out:
HubMobsters, I have an appointment today and have to leave in less than an hour. Can someone pick up some of the questions? Welcome the new Mobsters and check that they are in the RSS, have the HM graphic and RSS capsule? Clarify about the contest?
