HubNuggets: Read. Vote. Promote. 09/09/2009

Hi, Reader!

Thanks for poppin' in to help narrow down the selection process. We, your HubNuggets Team, have gone through thousands of hubs within the past week to find 10 great hubs by new authors at HubPages.

Now we need for you to read through the 10 nominated hubs to find your favorite and vote for them and if you have the time and energy, help to promote that hub!

Next Wednesday, 09/09/2009 will be the date in which this week's votes count. The 5 Top HubNugget Nominees will be noted and newslettered out to thousands of HubPages.com subscribers.

In short, we need for you to: Read. Vote. Promote.

If you'd like a more in-depth explanation of how to HubNugget, Shirley Anderson has written a terrific hub on this process, HubNuggets How-To, Q & A.

Wow, what a surprise --I claim Hubnuggets ignorance before yesterday. I had never heard the term before.

If a person writes, the greatest thing in the world is for folks to read those words and be entertained by them, but it is an honor as all the others have said to be nominated and have the chance for more people to read my hub.

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines

Hubbers, we thank you for supporting the Hubnuggets! And to the Hubnugget Wannabe's go, go, go..vote and promote! But you know what? You are all winners in our eyes... :)

I'm flattered to be nominated and pleased with the responses and comments. It seems a little weird to say this but I actually liked the Timbuktu one a little better than my own, so I almost voted for it,instead of my own. Then the devil sitting on my left shoulder pushed the angel sitting on my right shoulder off and indulged in a little self-promotion. Pushed the button for my own before I knew where I was at! The devil made me do it! (Maybe I'm not supposed to say...OOPS!...oh, well...)

They're all good. Really fine hubs, good reading, and I don't care whoever wins, that person deserves to.
