    Thank you to all the HubMobsters who took part in last week's  Animal HubMob, we had an amazing number of great quality hubs on the topic.

    Spring is almost here now, days are getting warmer and some of us are starting to go on a spring-cleaning spree which usually develops into a number of DIY tasks for the up coming season.  This is why this week we are going to be writing about your DIY projects.  Whether you want to share your experience in a DIY job you did in the past or you want to share the latest developments of an ongoing project we all want to read about it.

    Remember that to have a good HubMob Hub you must construct hubs with unique content, preferably using your own photos to illustrate your hubs.  You can monetize your hubs with a few Amazon and ebay capsules -just keep in mind the new rules to optimize your hubs-

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

    1. START YOUR HUB clicking on the  green button.  Then 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: … ojects?rss

    4. Add the HubMob graphic  created for the topic by  wyanjen

    5. Categorize your hub according to your topic. 

    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. 

    Have a great week and thank ypou for taking part in the Weekly HubMob!

        this is a good way to write...i might finish one this weekend...

        Would a "how to make ______" hub qualify under this? For example, I know NOTHING about remodeling so I can't do "How to Paint a Room" but I know a lot about a particular craft. Would a hub telling a person how to make something qualify as a DIY project hub?

          Seems to me that it would fit.  Why not go for it and post it.  If there are objections, I'm sure you will hear about it.  In the meantime-you just finished one more hub!

        Even if it's something like "How to Crochet a Giant Sweater?"

          I was going to out a giant ball of yarn in the graphic but I changed my mind...
          Now I wish I had put it in!

          How to crochet is definitely a "do-it-yourself "

              Yes, get started and published.  Just make sure that you put your hubs under the most appropiate category.

        Here's my MubMob for the week:
        How to Dye Your Auto Carpet

        The carpet was dying, so I tried DIY dyeing, but it had already died, so dyeing didn't DIY.
