Summer, and the HubNuggeting is Easy

Everything's Better in the Summer, Even HubNuggets

We've come to my favourite time of year here in North America. I love, love, love summer! It may just be me but I think everything is better and easier in the summer sun and heat. Things are more fun, too.

For example, we can get whimsical with our beloved HubNuggets:

  • Hot HubNuggets in the Summertime
  • HubNugget Nights
  • Hubbertime Blues
  • Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot HubNugget
  • HubNuggeting in the Streets
  • HubNuggeting U.S.A.

You get the picture. Summer's great and so are HubNuggets!

So, why not put on some Beach Boys and give these hubs a read. Don't forget to come back and vote for your favourite HubNugget, though. The five Wannabe's that get the highest percentage of votes will win the official title of HubNugget. It's a real honour and a big traffic magnet for those who top the charts.

Enjoy the nuggets and the rest of your summer!

HubNugget Wannabe Rules

All of the hubs on the voting block fall under a set of specific guidelines, which can be read in the HubNuggets How-To, Q & A. Basically, this contest is for new hubbers only, who have produced a hub with quality content (and enough of it) and an attractive layout.

~~~~~ Special Note to HubNugget Wannabes ~~~~~

Don't forget to rally as many voters as you can to your hub nomination! Blog about it, tell all your friends, link to it from your site, Facebook, Tweet it, even vote for yourself!

Promote the bejeebers outta your hub and get yourself into the top 5%!

Please remember not to spam anyone or put links into comments sections or the forums.

Good luck to all of our Wannabes!

My apologies to DoodleLyn! I missed putting your name beside your hub about gratitude journaling, I'm sorry. :( I went back to add it but a couple of people had already voted. Can't change anything once that happens or we lose the votes.

AAWW, c'mon, Shirley! This is so hard again. One of these weeks (this one please!) we really need the chance to vote for 2.

Thanks for voting, John! That's what keeps HubNuggets working!

Congrats, jazzuboo! Good luck, don't forget to promote your hub and get lots of votes.

You're welcome, Cam. Best of luck with it. Don't forget to drum up lots of votes!

It's okay, Herald, you've still got lots of time. The competition is between the hubs, not the readers. :)

Congratulations, Knell! We love to surprise people like this. We're glad that you find it encouraging, it means that we've done our job right. Remember that you can vote for yourself and spread the word for others to vote for you, too. Good luck in the contest!

Congrats, Jill! We try to grab the week's best for our HubNugget Wannabes, so we're happy to count yours among our top 10. Don't forget to promote the hub for votes. Good luck, Jill!

PD, nice to see you! Thanks for voting, too.

Irohner, congratulations to you, as well! Actually, recipe hubs are often very popular. Promote it in your blog or tell friends and family to come and vote for it. Good luck!

Angel Michelle! Lovely to see you, my dear. Thanks for voting. Hope the HubMobile is running smoothly.

WS, I'd say I'm sorry but you know I'd be lying. :) I know what you mean though, many weeks I want to vote for one. I always feel bad when I have to leave a favourite behind. Thanks for voting, though (I'm assuming you did)

Finally voted, had to ponder for a while today. Deceptive title: the hubnuggeting is NOT easy for the voter.

You guys make it tough...This week again I want more then one vote...how about 10.

Shirley friend, oh pal of mine, fellow cannuck, come0on you got a few extra voting ballots in your pocket... how about it just let me vote again and again and again


k@ri profile image

k@ri 7 years ago from Sunny Southern California

Took me long enough to decide, but I've finally voted. Why do you all have to find such treasures and make it so hard? :D


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Okay, I'm going to do a group answer here. There are a couple of things to address.

First of all, yes, Wordscribe is right, we deceived you all into thinking that you'd get off lucky and find it easy to pick just one Wannabe to vote for. Right now, even as I type this, the whole HubNuggets team is snickering and enjoying our little joke. :) We don't get out much and this is how we get our entertainment, along with surprising newbies.

Secondly, I don't have any extra votes stuffed in my pocket (sorry, Zsuzsy!) but I know where you can find more. *whistles innocently while waiting for you to figure it out*

Thanks, VS, WS, CS, ZS, and k@ri for voting! You are all very wonderful!

As a thank-you for your patience and understanding, next week's contest will be much easier for voting. *snicker*

Voted! Great hub, Shirley. I just wish I had your enthusiasm about the summer heat. All this fur is murder in the summer time!

"The Other Uses of Tea" is a most informative piece of information. Kudos to the writer.

I was in Buffalo visiting my daughter and family. Just got home and checked my account and SURPRISE! Wow, I'm elated to find my first hub as a hubnugget nominee!! Thank you so much...I am truly honored. Of course, I had to dig a little to find out what a hubnugget is. Thanks for helping me figure it out with your hub, Shirley. Great job and very informative hub. Oh, I just love it here in HubPages!!

Thanks, B.T. I suppose that if I had fur, I might not like the heat so much, either. Luckily, I don't have that issue....I shave my legs. :) Thanks for voting!

Angcorics, we're glad that you enjoyed the read! Thank-you for coming by and commenting. Hope you voted!

We just love surprising newbies, DoodleLyn! We're glad that you got it all figured out and I'm really happy that my hub helped you. Congrats on your nomination and don't forget to get lots of people to vote for your hub! Good luck with it, DoodleLyn!

Yay, KCC!! You are a loyal voter - we just love that, thank-you.

DoodleLyn 7 years ago from Upstate New York, USA

OK, I am really lost here. Can you please help me? I have told my friends about my nomination, and want to send them here to vote for me, as you suggested, but can't for the life of me figure out how to vote! I tried clicking on the link in the article that says vote here, and it does nothing. What am I doing wrong! where do I direct people? Please help. Thanks a lot.


wordscribe41 7 years ago

Scroll up on this page a little more than 1/2 way up and you will see the voting poll. When my hub was nominated, my friends had the same problem. It's not just you!


DoodleLyn profile image

DoodleLyn 7 years ago from Upstate New York, USA

I see the voting poll, and I keep clicking on my hub there, nothing happens. When I click on the green vote for your favorite poll here, nothing happens. I'm really confused.

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thank-you all for voting!

Dottie Angel, I'm glad that you enjoyed the music. I listened to it as I did the hub, love the old ones.

DoodleLyn, I know that you got the voting figured out and I'm so glad that you did!
