Mother Goose HubNuggets

Sing a song of sixpence, a pocketful of gold;

Eighteen little HubNuggets, plucked from the fold;

Six in each category, worthy of your note;

Who will the winners be? Choose them with your vote!

It's that time again - time to celebrate new, undiscovered writers on HubPages in our HubNuggets round up hub! Time to bring the cream of the crop to the attention of the HubPages community, and ask everyone to show their support by voting for your favorite in each category. Then, the top vote-getters in each category will receive the coveted HubNuggets Accolade to display proudly on their profile page.

...but how are the original eighteen hubs chosen? Well, you might ask. The arduous task of selecting each week's stand-out hubs falls to the HubNuggets Team. The selection process itself though, is more closely guarded than the Cadbury Caramilk secret...

Behind the scenes at HubNuggets Central

Wee Jason Menayan searches for new hubs,

Upstairs and downstairs, and under every shrub,

Tapping on his keyboard, checking twice each day;

"Are the categories picked? Are some new hubs on the way?


Maddie be nimble, Simone be quick;

Stop jumping over that candlestick!

Find all the hubs for this week's categories -

Then the team can get busy, and write up their stories..."

Patty Pieman met a writer writing hard one day,

Said Patty to the writer, "Friend, what do you have to say?"

The writer said, "I'm writing 'hubs' and hope to earn a penny."

Said Patty to the writer, "Well, I wish you that, and many!


But more than that, friend writer, for I'm searching out the best,

Friend Elf and I seek hubs of gold, and make this one request -

KoffeKlatch Gals was a busy wee gal, a-searching up dale and down dell;

She tweeted a new hub and updated her status to ripplemaker, and Enelle;

"Have you found any nuggets?" They were all looking out for the cream of the crop, you see,

And until hubs were found - the best all-around from new writers - they would busy be...


ladyjane1 had so much fun selecting new hubs for Friday,

She found a bunch and stopped for lunch, and said, "That's it for my day!"

So she sent the hubs to the team, and we compiled the best we'd all found,

And today, you see, they are here to enjoy, and promote, and share about!

RedElf's Hub is better than the children's story of Puss In Boots -- Voted Up and Awesome and shared around the Internet to gain more exposure for our new writers. Congratulations to the HubNuggets Wannabes nominees and may best 9 Hubs win with audience votes!

Now, everyone must go and enjoy some nice pie as they read through the nominated Hubs. It's on me.

Thanks so much, Patty PI - lovely to share our new writers around! I hope they all promote their hubs vigorously! I'll have a large slice of coconut cream, please, I just love the toasted coconut topping! Oh, and I'll have lemon meringue "to go" please. :D

Hi, Flora! We grew up with Mother Goose, and all took our turn reading it to our own children.
