    Hello everyone.  This week's HubMob is very special as it is going to be the last HubMob run by your usual HubMob team.  For a variety of personal reasons your HubMob team is in need of taking a break.  But before we run our last HubMob we want to let you know that it was a pleasure for the team to work together to create this special weekly event.  Thank you to HubPages and to all the HubMobsters who made the weekly HubMob possible.

    For our last HubMob we have a very special two-week topic for you, we are challenging you to write your best critique in your favourite areas.  Whether it is the latest book you've read, a film you have seen, a hotel, a website, a product or a service; this is the time to sharpen your critic's skills and write a review about those things you loved or hated.   And if you don't know where to start, what about a zombie film review.  Did you know that May is Zombie appreciation's month?

    Whatever your chosen topic, remember to write original content and to comply with the latest guidelines for adding ebay and amazon capsules.

    To join in this week's HubMob please follow the following instructions:

    1)    Click here and follow the link to answer this question. 
    2)    Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
    3)    Add the HubMob graphic  created for the topic by  wyanjen
    4)    Add this week's RSS feed to your hub
    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.

    Let's make our last HubMob an event to remember.

        It's been a year since I participated on HubMob. I'll miss Princessa and the rest of HubMob team. I'm sure there'll be more to expect for the next staff that will hold the reign of the team. Best of luck, everyone!

      Princessa, it has been a blast to work with you and everyone else in the HubMob team. 

      Hubbers- keep an eye out for more info on the next generation of HubMob that's on its way big_smile

      Looking forward to reading the Hubs for this two week topic!

        Thanks Simone, it has been wonderful to work with you and the HubMob team.  The team changed overtime but we always managed to find common grounds to make the HubMob work for the community.  I am going to miss you all we did some fantastic work and made great friends here.

        I'll keep my eyes peeled for the next generation HubMob and participate in it as soon as I have some free time to come back.

        All the best!

        Hope there is more. I just read something HubMobs on one of Patty Inglish pages and decided to look out for them only to find that they're coming to an end.

        Think I will take part in this and look out for what comes next

      The HubMob has been all kinds of fun big_smile

      I'm hoping to see lots of Hubbers turn into "The Critic" for our last topic.

      Remember, the map capsule is perfect for hubs that review local restaurants or attractions.

      Princessa, you are a gem.Excellent work! 
      Rmcrayne, you really took great pains to put the hubs together.

            I added the RSS and on the Hub, it shows I answered this HubMob question, but the Hub does not appear in the group with yours soni2006 - some glitch or other. LOL Thanks again!

              Actually you are right Patty and also I am not able to see your hub under the original question - Write a Critique? I think there is some problem because it doesn't take so many hours for the rss feed to show up. We need to report this problem to HP.

      I agree with Cardelean - I use the HubMob weekly challenge as inspiration for some of my hubs. But if I read the post right, HubMob will continue, just with a new team. A new team will bring in some new ideas and that will be fun.

      Yes I agree with everyone, we will miss Princessa, RMcrayne, and others . She is an amazing person. I am proud to be a hobmoster in their team. We will be waiting for the next gen hobmobs now but we would like having the same team. They help us build great hubs. Some of my best performing hubs that are getting long term traffic belong to weekly hubmobs. I feel proud after seeing their performance and more thing my traffic is going up again.

        Sounds interesting, as I never seem to have the time to write when the competitions are on - or to the standard I would like to at that time, so I find it difficult to take part in these hub topics. Maybe, just maybe Ill manage to write one for this one. If not.. oh well, I might not be meant to.

        Ok I "think" I had followed every rule possible, including ALL photos being my own! The rss feed would NEVER post until I saw the one here tonight which someone outside of hubpages told me to look here for it, so I don't know why it was not posted at the beginning?

        I wrote the hub right away, and that was the setback, and as a hub my followers liked it, but it didn't get outside readers because the rss thing wouldn't work and I kept getting error messages. So I fixed that, but now is this over?

        And oh, what's a good ending for anything without Zombies? Even though my Vampire can beat up your Zombie!

        Well Princessa, I have to say that I did not check the hubmob topic last week so this is news to me.  I'm bummed, as I enjoy your topics and seeing your bright smiley face.  Is the hubmob weekly team just you and RMcrayne?  I will miss both of you!
        sad  But, I from reading other comments, I am not alone in that sentiment. 

        Here is one big "AWWWWWWWWW" from me in NC.  sad

        Thanks for all of your service and WONDERFUL hubmob topics that spurred us to don our thinking caps and type away.  C

        I joined hubpages recently (11 days ago) and I came across hubmob as a concept and was very much interested to be a part of it. I went through the previous ones and i was amazed at the way in which it was conducted, the responses received. Great job. I am pretty dejected that I would not be able to be a part of this in near future but hopefully it will start again after the break [duration unannounced smile ]. You guys need a break after the hard work put in. Cheers.

        Princessa, You have helped tremendously with running HubMob, which helped inspire me to write some additional Hubs that I wouldn't have done otherwise.

        I see that this is being replaced by the Weekly Topic Inspiration. But your personal attention to the success of HubMob will be missed. I thank you for all your hard work. Get some well-deserved rest and all the best to you and your team.
