Most Unique Avatar

This was one of the most complicated calculations I had to contend with, there were so many unique avatars on hubpages. The e-mails kept coming and the numbers were so close I was actually on the edge of my seat anticipating the outcome. I had multiple e-mails coming and hubbers were asking who or what was the most unique avatar chosen by everyone. I love keeping secrets so here is the most unique avatar from a new hubber voted by your peers and the winner is,

Frogdropping!!!!  Total votes 206 !!!!


Most Unique Name

After going cross-eyed with numbers and finally realizing I needed a pair of reading glasses the most unique name that a new hubber has chosen in 2009 and voted on by their peers is,

Ralwus!!!!! Total votes is an amazing 264 votes!!!!!

That pic should be outlawed and to think many of us picked a common name! lololo


The Number One New Hubber Of 2009

This new hubber has only been here for seven months , not only has she been leaving an impact on others with her charm , grace and sense of humor she also is quite professional and is loved by her peers on and off the forums. I had more e-mails about the number one hubber then I ever believed I would recieve, they came from senior hubbers to new hubbers. The peers voted and I calculated!  

The Number One Hubber on HubPages for 2009 voted by her peers is,

Habee !!!!!!! Total votes (361) !!!

Closing Speech

Creating the top 200 was exhilarating! Just like you I had to wait with anticipation and calculate votes that were coming in, I had an out-pour of e-mails begging for answers but I have always loved keeping secrets and making people happy! I hope that all of you enjoyed these two hubs as much as I enjoyed creating them. Hub pages has came a long way and they are going to continue to go far, just remember the rules each and everyone of you are a star on hubpages, continue to read other people's hubs , looking for the diamonds along the way and Congratulations, here is to a wonderful 2010! 

Always, always remember if you are not on the top 200 list does not make you less then someone else all of you are wonderful hubbers in our book , it would have been to complicated to list a few 100,000.

Don't stop believing and follow your dreams!

Great work, I know this was quite an endeavor. A task very well done and much appreciated by all I’m sure. I offer my congratulations to the winners in all categories and especially to Habee, voted as the number one new hubber.

Habee, write some more wal-mart gags,(titled What not to Wear) that was a riot, we’re all gonna need the laughs in 2010, but know, I’m hot on your humor trail girl.

AE, thanks for putting me on the list, it is a very great honor. Happy New Year All!

fastfreta 7 years ago from Southern California

Thank you all, I'm speechless....but I'd like to thank my mother, and all the little people, blah, blah, blah. LOL! LOL! Seriously, thank you AE, you're wonderful. Now we must create a category for you, maybe, ah, um, let's see, The Hardest Working Hubber of 2010. Whatya say fellow hubbers. can we give her that honor.

Thank you fellow hubbers for the honor of being nominated and chosen for this title, and congrats to all of the fellow hubbers that were nominated and chosen and most especially Habee. a most deserved honor. But as was stated before, there are quite a few hubbers that were not on the list that were just as talented.

Because of my love of reading, this might be my less productive writing year, because so many hubbers were on the list that I have not read before, that I now feel the "need" to read their hubs. Again thank you AE for all of your hard work!

This is one of the best things that's ever happened to me! I want to thank ALL of you - from the bottom of my heart. I'll write a hub about this as soon as I calm down.

Thanks, AEvans, always, for your kindness compassion and your incredible gift with people. You really know how to rally us to do good things for each other. I'm completely shocked that I was nominated as most helpful hubber!!! Really!! But I have to say that it's so easy when there are so many great people in this community.

Thanks, everyone. Thanks for helping me feel welcome here and have a sense of belonging in this great community.

AEvans, you did a wonderful job. I can imagine that collating the votes must have been a herculian task.

WELL DONE. You have inspired us all at HP, so we will strive better in 2010!

To all the winners, i say congratulations. A well deserved honour.

And to all 200 nominees, ME INCLUSIVE (i'm still thrilled about my nomination), I say well done too. A sign of recognition has been given to us by our peers, and AEvans has captured it perfectly.

And to Habee, Congratulations. I'm glad you won it.

Happy New Year to all you beautiful and great hubbers.

Randy Godwin 7 years ago from Southern Georgia

I am so happy for all of the winners chosen, but I'm especially proud of Holle (you know her as Habee). We have been close friends for many years and it was she who talked me into trying my hand at writing. She was right and I was wrong (for once) and I was flattered to be among the nominees.

But payback is always hell. I was responsible for telling her about Hubpages and what a great place it was. So I win after all. Congratulations and well deserved accolades to the winners.

I have returned to thank all those who have helped me in every way to become a better hubber. Thanks for all those who voted for me and whoever it was that nominated me. My followers are just the best! Happy New year to everyone. Love you all and peace. CC Thanks so much Julianna, yer the best! x

Habee is my absolute favorite :) and even though I didn't get a chance to vote I believe , from seeing all of the winners I would have voted for the very same ones :) Frogdropping is always so much fun in the forums and all of the others, (if I go mentioning every single one I'll have written an entire Hubb) are awesome also :) A Evans , You did a great job with this , and thanks for putting in so much effort :) Congrats to all of the winners and Happy New Year to All :) :)

AEvans - thankyou for the time and effort it must have taken to create this and its partner hub. It's good to see so many fab, unique and wonderful folks on the list.

To those that voted for the frog, I thankyou. And to those that didn't - well you guys have the thanks of those you voted for so everyone's happy lol!

Remember guys ... all that ever drove this frog was a little too much vodka. Sober is best ;)

Thankyou for pinning me as a good guy - it's a good feeling x

Julianna, when I first stopped by, I didn't see my name anywhere. I was kinda disappointed, but very happy for all the winners, and pleased to have been nominated.

I just received an email from ralwus congratulating me on tying with Yoshi for first place in Original Content. I almost replied that he was mistaken, but I zoomed back over, and sure enough, there I was ;) Wow!

Congratulations, again, to all the winners, and thanks so much to everyone who voted for me! I am very honored to tie with such a great hubber as Yoshi, and to appear in such a company! Thanks again for all your hard work!

Harvey Stelman profile image

Harvey Stelman 7 years ago from Illinois


Only joking, I'm as confident as can be. That's why I was a jock, the leader of every organization I was in, a singer, a CEO and more.

Just give me a mic honey, and I'll cast my spell. If I though I was a failure,;do you think I would have toyed with running for President of the USA? I know I can do a better job, and was a much better speaker.

Do I sound like I lack confidence? My opinions are impeccible, I think you are wonderful and "HOT!" Do you want to argue that?

AEvans profile image

AEvans 7 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

Harvey: I would not argue with you and based on your profile you are highly intelligent and very well respected. :)

I have to say, I feel a bit ashamed for not noticing this hub sooner, but i'm glad i read it though. thanks for the read. :)
