A New Crop of HubNuggets Has Sprung Up!

A New Crop of HubNuggets!

Wow! Last week the HubNuggets started sprouting and this week we have a whole new crop for your reading pleasure.

We hope you enjoy these hubs by our newest authors as much as we did. Once you're done reading, don't forget to vote for your favourite. The five hubs that get the highest percentage of votes will be published in next week's edition of the HubPages newsletter. That means that five of our great new hubbers will see their avatars and hub sent out to more than 40,000 readers!  Please support their efforts and help them to rise to newsletter fame.

Enjoy, and please promote these HubNugget Wannabes like crazy!

Funride and Hup

Bye, Funride.  We'll miss you!

HubNuggets Team News

It has been an eventful week for the HubNuggets team.

Sadly, Funride has to leave us for awhile due to work obligations. Funride has been instrumental in bringing HubNuggets to where it is now. We will miss him but hope to see him drop in from time to time as he is able to.

Best of luck with work, Funride!

Of course, the other big news is Ryan Hupfer's mishap. If you haven't heard about it yet, you can read it in this forum post.

Get well soon, Hup!!

_________________________

Okay, that's all the bad news. Now, we have great news for you!

We are honoured to welcome the one and only B.T. Evilpants to the HubNuggets team. He's a great addition and we're really looking forward to working with him to bring you all the great HubNuggets each week.

This is an important event, fellow hubbers and readers. HubPages has the first HubNuggets team in history with a jackalope as a member!

Go, HubPages!

Just in case that's not enough excitement for you, we have even more great news!

The esteemed Patty Inglish is joining us as well!

Yes, that's right folks. We have the team of Evilpants and Inglish helping to bring you a fresh batch of HubNuggets weekly.

The New HubNuggets Team

ProCW is our beloved graphics guy and brilliant playwright. He helps to choose potential HubNuggets, write some of the hubs and promote HubNuggets in the community. I don't know what we'd do without him!

B.T. Evilpants is that loveable jackalope from Hell, Michigan. If anybody can pick some great HubNugget Wannabes, as well as write and promote, it's him. I took the precaution of having a word with RMR to ensure that he would make B.T. behave himself while carrying out his HubNugget duties.

Patty Inglish, MS has been seen following B.T. Evilpants around. I once saw her promoting B.T.'s political campaign while he was running for president. Patty will knock our socks off with well written HubNugget hubs. Not only that, she will likely have them written at the speed of light.

Ripplemaker has graciously agreed to be our angelic cheerleader. Each week, Ripplemaker pops into the hubs and forums to offer up her fun encouragement and cheer everyone on.

Me, I get to do all the cool stuff the rest of them do.

I should read before I comment but Shirley distracted me, sorry!

Best of luck to you funride with the job and thank you very much for doing such a spiffy job at Hubnuggets.

Welcome BT and Patty. Shirley really knows how to grow an intelligent crop. Hope you both have lots of fun with the Hubnuggets. We already know your the best!

OUCH, Oh poor poor Hup... Naughty asphault, how could you do this to our Awesome Hup! Please heal quickly...we need you!

Wow, Shirley! Thanks for the intro (which you did not deliver under any kind of duress, whatsoever)! I just cast my vote, and I hope everyone else will do the same. That would make it so much easier for me to stay on my best behavior!

@ GT: Shhh, that's supposed to be a secret. Keep quiet, and you can be on the board of directors, when I get there.

I'm healing quickly, everyone and I can now type on a keyboard and put on my clothes without the assistance of my fiancee (or unwilling roommate). Thanks for the get well wishes and I'll be back in the groove here soon! Oh, by the way, anything that has to do with Snuggies gets my vote.

Oh Elena, you'll like reading these hubs! I had to chuckle....yes, you are the winner, you were first, yay! Oh again, thanks for noticing my new avatar!

Aww, Dottie Angel, you are so sweet, thanks! You have a great rest of the day, too and enjoy your HubNuggets!

Yay! Thanks, JMockridge!

You said it, Dottie!

Goldentoad, it kind of smacks of Pinkie and the Brain, doesn't it?


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

BT and Patty, it is GREAT to have you with us!!

GT, you do know that you are about the 50th person that BT has promised that same board of director's position to, right? Big board.

Hup, so glad that you're on the mend and able to dress yourself!

Hey, Patty - I'm not sure using HubNuggets to sell secret government formulas has ever been done before. I may have to look that one up in the HubNuggets Rule Book. Hey, if you sell a bunch, can I be an exclusive distributor?

Hey everybody, cast your vote now! If poor Hup can vote while injured, then you can, too! Go head. The polls are right up there, over the comments /\.

I'm waiting.

Hi Princessa, love your sexy new avatar!

Hi, Ashley. I'm not sure why but I'm getting a spam warning on your comment. Not to worry, I'm going to tell it that you are not spam. I agree with you about B.T. He's great at bringing smiles to people's faces. Enjoy your reading!

Thank you so much for the nomination! I think all of us are already winners for even being nominated! Good luck to all of the Hubs!

Evidently there is a bitter rivalry between the followers of Snuggie and the followers of Slanket happening in the comments on my Hub now. This is serious stuff to these people and now Hubpages is has become part of it. Check it out!


Dottie1 profile image

Dottie1 7 years ago from MA, USA

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Aww, Bo, you are very welcome!  This community is so great, I just know that you're going to continue to love it.  We make so many good friends here and it's a very encouraging environment for writers.  It's a pleasure to have your hub in this week's HubNuggets line-up!

GT, that's so nice of you!  What a sweetie.

Teresa, I had a terribly witty response to your comment and decided it was best left unsaid. :) Thanks for voting!

Cdub, your hub was an eye-opener for me.  I had no idea those things had gained popularity!  I still can't fathom why.  Guess you can tell I don't own one.  Still, wish I had stock in the company.  Re the rivalry between Snuggie and Slanket, I have got to see that....on my way to your hub now. 

Thanks for writing a great hub and for coming here to comment.

Thanks for voting, Dottie!!

B.T. Evilpants 7 years ago from Hell, MI

Ashley Joy! I'm so glad I made you smile! Most people just can't see inherent cuteness through the evil antics.

1964 human, you are correct. This is an awesome way to welcome the new writers. I'll never forget the feeling of seeing one of my hubs in the newsletter. I can now say that it feels even better to spread that joy for others! And that includes you too, cdub! I hope you guys voted.

And for all you hubbers who haven't voted yet, don't forget that I did a stint as the Easter Bunny. That's right, I know where you all live!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Oh, that's a good thing for people to keep in mind, B.T. Bet a lot of people forgot about your escapades as Peter Rabbit's stand-in.

WOW! thanks everyone for all your support...what a great batch of Hubs to be considered with....I am having so much fun learning about this community, making friends, and most of all reading all the terrific Hubs! I wish I had an outlet for all my obsessive thoughts when I was a teen--Hub Pages is wonderfullly validating and so much FUN!

Miss B, you never mind a time before HP, you're here with us now! I should warn you though, that once the addiction kicks in, there'll be no world away from here. :)

Good luck with your hub, maybe we'll see you in the newsletter!

Tony, Tony, Tony. Don't you get a HubPages newsletter every Wednesday? This week, it actually went out on Friday because of Ryan Hupfer's accident. If you haven't been getting them, check your spam folder. If all else fails, you may have to switch email addys (I did).

Re HubNuggets, you can find information here in Hup's very first forum post making the announcement: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/7295

Aww, K@ri, you say the sweetest things! Thanks for the compliments, for reading and commenting and for voting.

When a Google Alert popped on my radar for an article entitled 'Snuggie Sightings' I discovered HubPages.com and one of this week's Hub Nuggets. I've now authored my first hub, which shares the early days and inspiration behind SnuggieSightings.com. http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Snuggie---How-a-Blanke..."

A great batch of hubs.

GeneriqueMedia 7 years ago from Earth

Welcome, As Seen on Blog!

Love the Hub, too. Rated it for you. Added you, ad nauseum. Awesome to have you aboard. =)

HubPages appears to be growing...Google is so nice. Hopefully we won't turn out to be Akira.

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Florida Keys, you're welcome! And we weren't hurt, thanks for asking. Hope you enjoyed reading the other HubNuggets. Please don't forget to vote and good luck!

Dink96, thanks so much for coming out to vote!!

Thanks, Generique! Enjoy all these great hubs by some of our newest Hubbers. I know that they'll appreciate it. Thanks also for remembering to vote.

Welcome, As Seen on Blog. Glad you found us and started writing! Just so you know, the comment section is not the place to put your links in. I'm looking forward to reading your hubs and wish you much hubbing success!

Generique, you're right about Google! :) I don't know what Akira is, though.

Ssh! Everybody went back to their J-O-B-S. They should visit the Master of the Universe and ask for a total Hubbing lifestyle instead.


B.T. Evilpants profile image

B.T. Evilpants 7 years ago from Hell, MI

I was thinking about putting in a drive-thru, or easy pick system over at the Master's website. Kind of like an a la carte arrangement. King or Queen Of Hubs would be an obvious pick!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Love the concept! What a great idea for those busy folks who need a little something, something fast.

Perhaps the Master could offer home/office delivery?

Shirley, Akira is one of the most seminal animes of its time.

Its a good movie, but when you dig down deeper into it you realize its all about becoming too egotistical.

Love and Junk,

G|M


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Oh-oh, Gen. I don't really know what an animes it, either. If I had to guess, I'd say.....a cartoon?

Good moral of the story, by the sounds of it.

Love and junk....love it!
