Who 'We' Are and What 'We' Do

In the opening paragraph of this hub, I mention all the stuff that we do. If you're curious about who we are, check the links below:

Ryan Hupfer - Communicator of Awesomeness and official HubPages employee who oversees the HubNuggets and newsletters (and much more)

Funride - Our bike riding, sweetheart Hubber who heads up the HubNuggets team

Ripplemaker - Another sweetie on the HubNuggets team

Shirley Anderson - That's me, also a HubNuggets team member.

ProCW - Our newest member on the HubNuggets team. Welcome, ProCW!

Each week, we read through more than 1,000 hubs to find the gems to present to you for voting. Then, one of us writes the HubNuggets hub and tends to the forum thread.

The most votes determine which hubs win and become official HubNuggets. The top 5 get their picture and hub linked to in the newsletter that Ryan sends out weekly on Wednesdays.

Fame and notoriety all around for our newest Hubbers!

Order's Up!!

Wait'll you see what the HubPages Corporate Chefs have cooked up for you today! The best, the hottest, the most succulent HubNuggets known to mankind are being served up for your consideration.

All of the authors of these hubs are new to the HubPages community. We love new Hubbers, love them soooo much, that we want to turn the spotlight on some of the really good ones.

Although it's always difficult to narrow our choices down to ten, we have chosen hubs that illustrate good layouts, topics, length and quality. Great content counts, of course, but so too does attractiveness. New HubPages writers can use the HubNugget lists as guides on how to set up their own hubs.

So, give these HubNugget Wannabes a read, then come back here to the poll and place your vote for the one you like best. This is usually tricky because they're all so good!

After the voting is finished, the top five authors will appear in the HubPages newsletter that Ryan sends out every Wednesday. That, my friends, is a very exciting prize and brings a surge of traffic to the winning Hubbers' pages.

Happy reading, and good luck to the contenders!

Not to poopoo the Hub Nugget team's eagle eyes, but when I saw "Icelandic Horses" was one of this week's nominees, I wondered how robie2's (much better IMHO) hub on the same subject from 6 months ago was considered "new".  In case you missed it, it's at http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Icelandic-Horse-Gift-f... 

So now ya know which of this week's nuggets I'm not voting for.  ;)

JamaGenee, that link says that hub does not exist (at least when I click it). But I do know the one you're speaking of. And yes it is awesome and shows up in the "Related Hubs" box on Icelandic Horses.

HOWEVER: This great hub by "the real tomato", people will find, is a bit diferent. Lots to say about Icelandic Horses, you know. More than one take and bits of info on all the subjects we hubbers write about. And more than one way to write about the subjects we chose to write about.

Tomato, Sounds like you and robie2 have a shared love and afinity for this breed and welcome to hubpages!

Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Hi, JamaGenee.  I wasn't personally aware of the previous Icelandic Horses hub (and it isn't there now), but two things sprung to mind when I read your comment.  Firstly that some hubbers have more than one profile (hence may move articles or write on similar topics) and secondly, one of the criteria for HubNuggets is that the hubbers be new.  So, writers who have been on HP for some time aren't even eligible.  Also (okay, 3 things), many people write on same topics, but have different info/perspectives.  Kudos to you for being so well informed on topics!!  I appreciate you mentioning it when you come across something you're not sure is right, never hesitate to do so.  Thank-you, and thanks for voting!

 

Frieda, hi!  Hey, I think I just said what you said.  Great minds?  Thanks for coming by and for voting.  :)

 

DaveEarley!  You didn't think yours was best?  Not to worry, you've got another crack at it if you write a great hub this week.  Check out the hub that you did think was the best and emulate it in terms of layout and quality.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Thanks for voting - and so honestly, too.

 

Ajcor, isn't it a sad feeling when you can't vote for all the ones that you want to?  Thanks for choosing one, though.

 

RMR, I've put your order in for super sizing.  Meantime, please enjoy what the HP corporate chefs are offering....they look like the types that you want to placate.  Hope you voted and thanks for coming by!

 

K@ri, that is exactly what we hope for with the HubNuggets!  You are getting a lot out of the hubs, which is what they're meant for.  I love it!  You're getting the best of the resource.  Thanks for coming by, for relishing your fellow hubber's work, and for writing a hub of HubNuggets quality.

 

Thanks, Bob.  Hope you enjoy them (and vote).

 

Karelia, you're welcome.  Keep writing great hubs....maybe we'll see you here again.  New hubbers can make the HubNuggets list more than once.  Good luck, and don't forget to vote!

Thanks for the Hub Nugget nod, HubPages Corporate Chefs! I am honored to be included on this list with such fine hubbers and their awesome hubs. Greatly appreciated!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

K@ri, I agree with you about the HP community. It's the best I've been apart of, the people here are great! Re helping new hubbers, we like doing that! :)

Actually Elena, I think Funride was selling his vote over in the forum...think the price tag was steep though. :)

Hi, Sarah. The 'chefs' love hearing that people like their HubNugget choices, thank-you for saying so. Keep up the good work....new hubbers can be chosen more than once. Maybe we'll see you here again!

You know what I like about Nuggets? - that there is something for everyone. We all have different tastes and interests. The team does a great job aka a well balanced meal?

It is so nice to be recognized- can't thank you enough for reading my stuff. (-:


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

TRT, thank-you! We like well-balanced, keeps our beloved hubbers healthy. :)

The new hubbers are doing a fabulous job of writing on various topics. When they put in nice pictures, have some good content of a decent length, they have exactly what the HP chefs are looking for!

Oh, it's really starting to get juicy now!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

LOL, Frieda! You really know how to make an entrance. I don't know what you're talking about but thanks for the chuckle!


Frieda Babbley profile image

Frieda Babbley 7 years ago from Saint Louis, MO

Oh you're welcome Shirley. It's the shoes. I keep tripping.

What I meant by juicy were the counts. It's so close and keeps changing! I'm biting my nails in anticipation!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

I wondered if that's what you meant, Frieda. I can understand the nail-biting - it's neck and neck for a few hubs this week!

Try not to get too anxious. The top 5 get to be prestigious HubNuggets (with listing in the the prestigious newsletter!) so there's 5 chances to get in there. Also, keep writing really good hubs, because you can get chosen more than once (yay!).

You know what they say, Frieda - it ain't over til it's over! Oh yeah, crossing your fingers doesn't hurt, either. :)


Erick Smart 7 years ago

Thanks, I always enjoy reading the hubnuggets. I just do not have a lot of time to sift these gems out myself often.

Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thanks, ProCW!! :) The corporate chefs have made a ton of mouthwatering HubNuggets in anticipation of a huge turn out this week. If, by chance, they start running low, I'm sure they'll be happy to whip up another batch!

Just look at those faces, they scream, "We love to serve you!"

Thanks for checking! Running out would be bad. :(
