Cirque du HubNuggets

Everybody Love a Circus!

Last week, our resident jackalope, B.T. Evilpants reported to you live from the red carpet at the Palace Hotel. It was all glamour and glitz, very exciting but it's taken me days to get the teasing out of my beehive! So, this week, we're whisking you off to the big top! I can let my hair down, while enjoying the show.

What a show it is this week, too! Ten new HubNugget Wannabes performing for your entertainment. This isn't just a regular circus, though. Cirque du HubNuggets is an elite, one-of-a-kind performance that will never be repeated, so you're not going to want to miss a second of the action.

Check out the Wannabe talent, yourself. These hubbers have been practising hard and are ready to go all the way to the top, as you are about to see. Don't take your eyes off them or you may miss something.

So, grab yourself some cotton candy at the concession stand, get comfy and take in some entertaining hubs. Don't forget that the HubNuggets process is interactive. Cast a vote for your favourite Wannabe, using the poll below the nominees. The 5 hubbers who receive the most votes get some great extra exposure.

Thanks for visiting Cirque du HubNuggets. Enjoy the show!

I just replied to your forum post, then came here and see that the answer is in your profile. That's not as much as me guessing. :)

What a GREAT theme and Nyugget nominations this week for the Wannabe Hub! You've made me smile at the end of a long weird week. :) Thank you, thank you, Team and Wannabes.

...and to think, I was going to run away with the circus!

Hublim, congrats on your nomination! Very happy to hear that we can look forward to more great hubs from you.

Hi, Patty! Glad you were able to find some stress relief here. Glad you ran to our cirque!

Voted, fabulous job again Shirley and all the writers. I found a real gem this week to vote for. Thanks for finding such great writers week after week.

Thanks, everyone for voting!

BT, I think I saw the bearded lady taking the 3 headed-2 legged goat for a walk behind the midway. They weren't moving too fast, you should be able to catch them. You should know, that there's a rumour going around that she's dating Andre, the wonder pygmy. The carnies assure me that it's true, however I haven't actually seen them together. Might wanna ask her about it, though - protect your heart.

Glad you like our themes, RedElf!

Ohhh, WS, you discovered a special one? Don't you love it when that happens?

Thanks all for your comments.

I love this whole concept as it provides a great opportunity to meet some of the newest members, and read some great articles. Once again your team has done a great job at choosing these Wannabe nominations.

I've read them all, and placed my vote.

Good luck to all!

Thank you for the nomination, TWICE this is! Already! I'm very honored.

One of the great choices you've made on this list is the hub "Inside Pakistan's Red Light District", which is just a great hub by a wonderful writer. I nearly cried at the plight of those girls. The writer has a very special, poetic writer's voice.

Thank you again for the nomination, and all the good picks you've made.

Duchess, I couldn't agree with you more! This is a great venue and teaching tool for newbies. Mostly, in my opinion, it's great encouragement. Glad you enjoyed it this week, thanks for voting!

Shamelabboush, thank-you for supporting our new hubbers by casting your vote.

Paradise7, you're welcome. Thanks to you for writing a great (and moving!) hub, complete with photos. Our Wannabes provide good illustrations for new hubbers to follow.

Missalyssa, you're welcome. Good luck in the contest and don't forget to promote your nominated hub like crazy!

Michelle, I'm so happy that you are enjoying our Cirque du HubNuggets this week! We've had a lot of people attending, hope you were able to find a parking spot for the HubMobile. :)

MyOwnWorld, you are right about HubNuggets being a celebration of writing. At least, I think so. I'm sure that your work will touch others. Your talent and intention to do so will make that happen.

General, you've changed avatars. You look ready for battle, now. :) Thanks for dropping by and voting!

Cally, thank-you! Oh, you will continue to love HP, too. Just ask a few hubaholics. ;)

Very best of luck to all of our Wannabes!!! Don't forget to promote your hub and drive up your votes.

I am promoting my hub A VIOLENT MARRIAGE (nominated for hubnugget of the week) by posting a "please vote for my hub..." message on forums. But now it says I'm blocked from posting messages for being too self promoting.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

No, no, Sue. Sorry but you're not promoting when you do that, you are actually spamming.

Perhaps this will help, there's a section that talks about promoting your hub: http://hubpages.com/community/HubNuggets-How-To


Sue Adams profile image

Sue Adams 7 years ago from Andalusia

Yes, I realise that now. I was in such a hurry to promote that I overlooked the sentence about not distributing links. Hey,ho, you learn by your mistakes. Thank you Shirley for your patience.

No prob, Sue. Congratulations on your win, by the way! :)
