HubNuggets: Is 13 your lucky number?

It sure is!!!


Especially if you're one of the 13 lucky HubNugget nominees for this week!


Instead of going with the standard 10 for you to select from, I've decided to put forth 13 very worthy hubs for you to consider to be in the HubPages.com newsletter.


"Why 13?" (Some of you may be asking that, I'm sure.)


Well, to be quite honest, I'd like to place the blame on the HubNuggets Team. :D They've submitted their picks to me and they're great selections, so I couldn't let even one of them go without nomination.


By the way, if you have any doubt that thirteen is lucky, ask the Top 5 that are selected from these Lucky 13.


So what is it that we need for you to do?


Read. Vote. Promote.


Without any further delay, here they are...
