Every Friday we volunteers publish a Hub with 1) a fun theme and 2) articles by 18 newer Hubbers for you to read and choose for a vote. ANYONE can vote, not just HubPages members.
The 18 articles are split equally this week among these 3 topics (3 different topics each week in rotation):
1) Books and Writing; 2) Gender and Relationships; and 3) Religion and Beliefs
VOTE for your favorite in each of the 3 groups, or at least 1 in 1 group. We appreciate it.
Three Winners (HubNuggets) per topic (total of 9) will be announced and posted in the weekly HubPages Newsletter next week, arriving in your 70,000 to 80,000 member email Inboxes, receiving expanding Hub traffic. Commenting on Wannabe Hub- comments threads will open YOU up to more traffic as well, if you are a member.
Articles are called potential HubNuggets; their writers are HubNugget Wannabes. Winners and their Hubs are official HubNuggets. HubNuggets are like Chicken Nuggets, only of the tasty, written variety. A Louisiana friend described good music and writing as tasty and I believe it.
These articles will leave a GOOD TASTE in your mouth, so have a good serving of nominated HubNugget Hubs at:
All of you volunteers are doing a bang-up job with your enthusiasm and dedication. That you introduce new Hubbers to the community, and the community to them, is a fantastic PR function that HP would have no other way. HP's more than lucky to have you.
Hi, I hope you don't mind a question: The topics for each week, do you decide them "on the fly" or are they announced somewhere in case someone wants to work with them? Sorry if this is a dummy question!
The topics rotate in a set order, three each week. You can look at the last several HubNuggets Hubs to see the order. DO THIS by going to this week's link (way above) and then going down a few lines to PREVIOUS EPISODE. At the end of THAT page, will be the last few weekly round-up hubs and the topics clearly marked on each.
The ONLY WAY a newer Hubber can "compete" or "enter" this contest is to do your BEST in each topic that you tackle every day and YOU CAN DO IT every day -- use new content around 500 - 800 words long or longer, but not book-length; good grammar, at least one photo or graphic that you have the legal right to use (look for Public Domain images on Wikimedia Commons, for example) and and attractive layout. can add more images, Amazon and eBay capsules, RSS feeds, tables, approriate links, etc.
Thank you for the explanation, Patty! I am a bit of a lazy buffoon (whoops!), but I think maybe I'll set to work with this. I just need to find a funny angle, as I refuse to be serious about anything that I pen in here
So. I've followed your advice, and so far I've gathered the following topics as topics that will be carried on the Enterprise:
- Health - Technology - Knowledge and Education - Books and Writing - Gender and Relationships - Religion and Beliefs - Home and Family
This buffoon here can pen a laugh or two about a couple of these for sure. But this buffoon (poor, poor silly bufffoon!) ain't sure at all what's the order so my hat and I are going to hope for the best If nothing else, the offering(s) will be funny! Yes, they will!
hubpages sucks! I spent hours on my hub last night only to get their little sh**y "overpromotional message". Do they not know that devhub and many other competitors ENCOURAGE promoting your business.. I am gone.
I have to agree with that.. Ms. Patty, queen of the masterful writing skills. You never stop amazing me with the new and clever hubs you come up with. I sometimes wonder how you do so well and not tire. It seems your engery and wisdom go on and on. I'm not trying to kiss up, I really do mean every word comming from honest thoughts Ms. Patty.
I agree with Patti...I did not think I had much to say until after I turned 50. There is something reflective about this magical age for me. And that does not mean others do not, it is just my time to explore new avenues and chase down ideas long left behind in my cobwebbed infested mind!
Thanks for the wonderful place to "play" everyone!

I originally posted this in this week's HubNuggets thread, then deleted it and brought it here. I thought that it deserved its own thread.We received this email note today from a very proud mother. "Shirley,...
PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously....
