First of all, I hope that you all had an amazing weekend and it's great to see you all back here on HuPages....this is going to be an awesome week!
Now, for all of you Hubbers out there who have been following my forum thread about HubMobs, this is the first official topic that we will all be HubMobbing for the rest of this week. I was given a great suggestion to add the HubMob topic as a Request, which seemed like a great idea and it it will be an easy way to see who all has written a Hub on the particular topic.
So, this first week's topic is All About Various Popular Hair Styles: Their history and how to create them and here is how you can join our first, official HubMob:
1. First, think of a good focus area to Hub on that goes along with the overall HubMob topic of the week. Have some fun with it and write it about something that you are either interested in or know something about. For example, gamergirl could write a Hub titled 'Things to think about when dying your hair a bright color' or I could write about 'Manageable hair styles for really good looking tall men'. It can be about anything, but just make sure that the topic stays focused on various hair styles.
3. Change out the title to something that you want to write about and be sure that you change the Web Address to match your title once you change it. Also, feel free to keep the tags that I added or delete some of them and add your own.
4. Write up your soon-to-be-amazingly-awesome Hub about your focus area of the hair styles topic and publish it once you're happy with what you've put together. Feel free to add plenty of images, links to other resources and videos to help better describe your hair style topic of choice. I think that I'm going to try to find a couple of Joe Dirt images/videos to add into mine since he rocked a super-mean mullet.
5. Once you have published your Hub, add a link back to it inside of this Forum thread and tell us what you wrote about and why you chose that particular topic. Also, as your Hub begins to move up the ranks as far as Google and other search engines go, be sure to keep us updated with how it's performing.
So, that's about it - I hope that you all are as excited as I am to get this first HubMob up and running...this is going to be great to see what we all come up with. Although this might not be the first topic that you would choose to write about(definitely not mine), I think that it will help us all become better Hubbers and it's going to be great to see what focuses we all choose and how we all put our Hubs together about them.
If you have any questions, please let me know and although there's not real timeframe for the HubMobs, it would be great to have several published by Wednesday so that I can feature them in the newsletter.
Well, even though you have no hair(or short hair) there are always things that you can write about. Also, just because you don't have hair, doesn't mean that you can't write about mohawks, perms or even different hair braids. Part of the HubMob is to get you writing about topics that you might not normally write about - so I say go for it!
I think that Jimmy should write a Hub on 'The history of Mohawks and how you can give yourself one'.
Anyone else agree?
I mean, I am writing mine on mullets, and I'm definitely not styling one of those right now(unfortunately).
I went ahead and made this a 'sticky'(that's why it's pink and at the top of the forum topics) so that everyone can stay in the loop with what's going on with the HubMob. When we post the new one next week, I'll turn this back into a normal forum thread and make the new HubMob topic a sticky.
I'm having a "blonde" moment??!! Wasn't today, Monday, September 8th, the day we start posting HubMobs on Wedding Themes?? Can't find them?? Maybe I am a week, or a year, off!! Love the idea of Halloween hair as well!! Earth Angel!!
Well, it looks like you're in the same position that Jimmy is in. I used the wedding theme just as an example for telling everyone about the HubMob idea, but it seems that a few people such as yourself took it to be the official theme for the week.
Feel free to post a link to your wedding Hub here, too since we all seem to be a little confused - but you should definitely join in on the hair styles topic, too if you get the get the chance.
Thanks Ryan!! As an author I can be sooooooooooooo literal sometimes!! I could have sworn it suggested this Monday, today!! Well, if Jimmy got it confused also, I don't feel so bad!! I couldn't be in better company!!
Yes, I will post the Wedding one as a Hub: Celebacy and Seventeen Wedding Gowns!!
Yes, I will post hair as well!! I am the queen of golden locks!! Blonde hair almost to my knees!!
Curly Hair Pictures and Tips...uh..that would be because I have extremely curly hair and spent most of the 70's with it rolled up in orange juice cans or ironing on the ironing board to get it straight...
Mine's done too. Temporarily. I'd like to include illustrated instructions, but as noted in the hub, the style works best with long, straight hair and mine is short and curly, so until I can find a model, visitors are out of luck. However, it's a lovely, vintage updo that's perfect for weddings or proms and can be dressed down for everyday use too.
Yeah..I do..but I am renting it out right now to an elderly couple from Pasadena. I used to rent it to Lou Reed on the weekends when I wasn't using it...I can tell you, I will never rent to anorexic male rock stars again...Elderly couples are much easier to work with...and they don't break guitars or spit blood.
Actually we didn't see it in France I've just seen it online. As usual it is a matter of love or hate isn't it? I love Audrina Patridge's hairstyle and hate Bill's... what is he thinking about???? Do you have any favourites?
I don't deserve to get the credit for that, as I saw it in a hub by another contributor (don't remember which one, though). I thought that was a good idea, so I put the HubMob logo and the rss-feed for the request into my hub.
I usually review products or destinations with some sort of cool WOW factor to them. So this was a tough topic for me. I settled on a review of websites that let you virtually try out different hair styles before getting one done for real.
Mine should be done tomorrow. Doing the research was tough because there's just NOTHING on the internet about it, which maybe will end up working out for me. I had to go to all academic sources and it took me a couple of hours to find anything of depth on it. But I'm solid on research now, so tomorrow I'll dash it off.
The point was just to get them done this week, right?
I'm reluctant to post another on the same subject that has already gotten the most views I have ever had... I do have a couple of photos taken when I gave an author's presentation in the last week of school... it just happened to be on "Crazy Hair Day". Generally the schools where I taught discouraged such distractions. I didn't do high school.
k... done... it'll be a little more difficult for any hubbers that want to use them, but i'll take them down. to use my ideas, i ask that in addition to the hubmob requirements, any hubbers that wish to use any of these ideas, please link to my profile with credit for the ideas... how's that?
Hubmob request: How to Wash a Man Right Out of your Hair in the South Pacific.
* suggested tags... entertainment, advice, movie, hair, songs, musical, broadway, south pacific, wash that man right out of my hair
Hubmob request: Hair, the musical and the hairy topics within.
Apparently I started writing one and published it before it was ready. Clicked the wrong stupid button.
Anyway, I unpublished it already and will work on it more. Could we have a popup installed asking if we really want to do that when we publish a hub? Oh wait, I am on the wrong board for that question.
Hey, if we're doing requests, can I make one? (Okay, two.)
When I worked as a tutor, one of my kids' mothers was an African hairdresser and she used to come every week with the most beautiful and elaborate braids you can imagine. I'd love to learn a little more about how to braid cornrows.
I would also like to learn microbraiding, since they are very similar to a style traditional in my husband's culture:
Ugh!!! I can't look at this thing one more minute! It took me hours and hours and hours. I'll edit it later...think you can tell I was sick of it by the time I hit the sixties....what the hell was I thinking doing 2 decades???
Ok, here's mine. It's not funny... I couldn't think of anything funny besides lice or trying to make a joke about chicks with their head stuffed into a bee hive, so, I ended up doing a real hub on powdered wigs in England instead. They're called "perukes" if you didn't know. I sure didn't. LOL.
Hi everybody! Another week starting, another challenging weekly topic to tackle. Last week we were all about marriage, this week we are going to write about what some people seem to think is the best way to man's...
First of all, I have officially made it to the Las Vegas airport to head back to good ol' HubPages HQ after a crazy week in Las Vegas. I haven't really gotten any sleep today, so I apologize for any bad grammar,...

For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that...
