The Superb owl of the Hub Pages

The Hub Pages - Super Bowl I

The first order of business is to congratulate all of the 32 winners of the very first Hub pages Hubbie awards. This really was the Super Bowl of the Hub Pages. However instead of one every year like in the NFL, it was a total of five years in the making here at the hub pages. When you do the math, the results are quite astounding. Over the past five years there have been, at the time of the contest, 1,151,676 publications written by approximately 217,438 users. There were only 26 categories which were awarded to 32 of the hub pages brightest. There was no way to manipulate the contest, since only one vote per computer URL address was accepted from members of the community, not the hub pages staff. As mentioned in the 17 minute U tube telecast there were hub page records set, which will hold for a long time to come. To have come up with these results was an extremely difficult task since there are so many great hubs out there throughout the hub pages. So my hat is off to the hub page staff for deciding to let the hubbers themselves choose all of the winners, and it was a decision which they should be very proud of now. I want to close by giving my sincere congratulations not only to the 32 winners, but to every single hubber who has ever written a story here on the hub pages over the past five years!

Voted UP and away, Goody! Great hub and wonderful writing. YOU did not have a contact slot on your profile, so may I leave you my Personal Note of Thanks for Following Me here? Thank you. Please read . . .

Dear Goody,

I wanted to send you a Special Hello, and to tell you that I am Very Glad that you are in my world. I hope that when you read my hubs, that boredom will not overtake you. And please, write me anytime that you want to. I always love to hear what my Valued-Followers are up to and what they are doing.

You are an amazing. Talented writer. And I'm positive that your writings will touch many lives as they have mine.

Please accept My Note of Thanks . . .a SINCERE THANK YOU for following me. I TRULY VALUE my followers and I shall NOT take YOUR Warm Gesture for granted. Hopefully, my hubs will be educational, entertaining, and hopefully, interesting. But I promise you that my hubs will NOT be negative, abusive, or demeaning to anyone.

If at any time my hubs offend or upset you, simply tell ME FIRST, and I will rectify the situation pronto.

Again, THANK YOU!

Sincerely, Kenneth

Your Friend for Life

I would like to thank you kittyjj, however I won a "Hubnugget" on February 2nd 2011, which is a nice award, but not on the level of a "Hubbie Award". But I do know someone personally who did win a Hubbie Award. Does that count?

Goody7, What an elucidating, enjoyable, entertaining look at the Hubbie awards of last year! In addition to your humor, you're most thoughtful in involving readers through your poll.

Thank you for sharing,

Derdriu
