    Hello, thank you for all your leftover hubs, we had a Hubbalicious week with 29 hubs  submitted.  And the special mention for the Most prolific HubMobster last week goes to Aaron99  with 7 hubs submitted.

    Five months ago we had a Winter sports HubMob.  That time we managed 46 hubs on the topic.  This week we are going to jump to the other extreme and we are going to be HubMobbing about Summer Sports.  You can hub about your favourite summer sports, anything like swimming outdoors, beach volleyball, surfing, sailing, water skiing, etc.  You can also Hub about summer sport's equipment; summer sports competitions and even summer sports accessories.  It is up to you how you tackle the topic; just make sure you have fun writing. 
    This is going to be a hot week packed with action, let's get started!


    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 on your hub to best suit your topic. 

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/61686/hubm … ew&rss


    5. Add the HubMob graphic below 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!


    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 … -join-one, please feel free to come up with any questions if you have any doubts left.

      can i write about mlb phenomenon strasburg?  and maybe another hub about how sexist and demeaning a volleyball game like "Dead or Alive:  Extreme Beach Volleyball" series really is, and how it paints a bad picture on the video game industry for portraying women in such a sexist light.

      or can i write about how utterly selfish LeBron James was for making...THE DECISION!!!  Can i write about any of these topics, or all three of them?

        We're pretty liberal here Steven.  I tend to favor the less than mainstream topics myself.  My hubs on 'striving for perfection' hubmob were 'adverse effects' hubs.

              You're so right Tim.  Things have been really slow since the June contest ended.  Maybe summer fun and contest exhaustion?!  big_smile

                No, never too late. 
                A topic usually lasts one whole week, from Monday to Monday.
                However, I never close the request, which means that you can still post a HubMob hub on your chosen topic even if we have already moved on to a new topic. 

                Did I make sense there?
