Announcing: The Hubnuggets 'Strip'!

The Hubnuggets Comic Strip, that is!

What did you expect? paint strippers? ......ahhhhhhh for shame....tsk tsk tsk no-one strips paint here.

Ship's Log Supplemental: stardate 23.04.2010 Security Chief Zsuzsy Bee recording

This week will be an easy one for us, as the SSHubbertese is in dry dock so that the new replacements can be get done, before we head out into deep space once again.

Commander B.T. volunteered for mess hall duty. There are some fantastic smells wafting from the Kitchen. (can you smell em?) He's forbidden us to go near "his" kitchen until he's ready.

Hubnugget Hank is snoozing under the table, he just finished a pitcher of malt beer.

RedElf is updating the records of the Hubbertese.

Cap'n Anderson is fidgety, she doesn't like waiting for anything or anyone.

SciPi as always is fiddling (improving) her gidgets and gadgets.

Ripplemaker is off spreading good cheer, here and there.

Me, I'm bored....

A few how to write great HubNuggets Tips


  • Write your Hub on an interesting topic filled with original content
  • Write from your experience or point of view
  • About 750-1000 words or so is a good length
  • Give it an attention grabbing title
  • Check your spelling and grammar
  • Emphasize the content with some photos and or a relevant video
  • Give photo/video source acknowledgements
  • Add links and RSS feeds

The criteria to be considered a ‘hubnugget wannabe’ is as follows

A HubNugget Wannabe is a great hub written within the past seven days by a new, less then two months old hubber. It is then chosen by the team and added onto the list of the current week's HubNugget contest.

Although this list of new hubber hubs is vast (thousands and thousands of hubs), the team narrows the number of choices down to just six in three categories. Those finalists are then showcased in the weekly HubNuggets hub, whereupon open voting begins via three poll capsules.


Cap'n Shirley explains...

  • HubNuggets How-To, Q & A

    Have you always wondered what a HubNugget is and how to get in on the HubNugget action? Well, wonder no more! All you have to do is read this hub and all will be revealed.

So without further ado here are this weeks choices!

Don't forget every week you are able to vote for your favorite hub. You can pick one from the 18 hubs/ 6 from 3 weekly categories. This fabulous new format lets you vote for three hubs, that’s right three, not just one, one from each of the weekly featured categories.

To be selected and voted to be a Hubnugget is very encouraging to a new Hubber.

This is the best graphic novel/strip I've enjoyed since Nicole Hollander, her "Sylvia" and the Venusian, Gernif.

I'd been longing for that type of fun and here it is. I must have left my science iDiary turned to that page when I went ashore this week. lol
