CS, the pic in the forum thread (the good one) made me hungry, too!  Alas, I have no nuggets!  I'll have to enjoy these ones! 

Like your new avatar, by the way!  Say hi to the kittys for me.

Thanks, Susan!  Happy reading.

Hi Michelle. Glad you are enjoying this fresh batch of HubNuggets! Come back anytime.

Thanks to the folks who put this together. It is so much fun to read the variety of hubs each week. What a treat to have one of my hubs featured again.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thanks for reading and voting, everyone! Michelle's right, we're getting a good turnout! Funride has the right idea about spreading the word to all your contacts. He has won the crown for most invitees two weeks in a row. Come on guys, somebody's gotta take that crown away from him!

To those authors who are surprised to see their hubs nominated....ain't it sweet? Keep on writing well and often!


Zsuzsy Bee profile image

Zsuzsy Bee 7 years ago from Ontario/Canada

I have done my civic duty. I would like to have about 8 votes this week as the hubs were all a really geat choice.

greetings Zsuzsy


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

I know what you mean, Zsuzsy! It actually puts me in quite a quandry. Then, I have to figure out some way to pick the best of the best.

Thanks for showing your Hub Spirit! Don't forget to invite everybody and their dog to vote! That crown could be yours! It'd be nice for a Canadian to get it.

Do we get stickers that say "I voted!" on them? Thanks for putting together such a great selection.


NVarchitect 7 years ago

Done the read and the vote. I could have chosen at least 4, but you only allow 1. I got into the newsletter last time so I figured I should play my part in the follow-ups. Thanks Shirley for putting together such a diverse group of Hubs - a rollercoaster of emotions.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

That's a GREAT idea, Teresa! We can't put pics in the comments section, but here's a big red, "I voted" button link for you.

NVarchitect, I remember your hub about Helium vs HubPages last week - very well done! Congrats for making the newsletter. I haven't gotten any of my newsletters since Dec. 10th, I feel so left out!

It is hard to chose just one, I know! Funride, Ripplemaker and I have trouble narrowing it down to 10 sometimes, there are so many good ones.

Thanks for taking the time to come by and support your fellow hubbers.


Dottie1 profile image

Dottie1 7 years ago from MA, USA

I think I know now who I'm voting for.  I can't think too long about it though cuz I could easily change my mind.  There are just too many good ones this week.  Ok going up there now to cast my vote. :)


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Yay, voter Dottie! I agree, it's easy to see why they're all good, which makes it really hard to pick one! Thanks for supporting our newbies, Dottie!

buddygallagher 7 years ago from manila, philippines

Making the list is a natural high, I'm still giddy and definitely feeling all the support. Thanks Shirley and Ripplemaker, and of course everyone who took precious time out of their hectic lives to read my hub.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Hey, Buddy, isn't hubbing just plain, good fun!! I'm glad you're feeling that 'thing' that writers feel when their work is highlighted. It's just one of the best things ever!

You do know, don't you, that it wouldn't be here if you hadn't produced a well-crafted hub. Give yourself a well deserved pat on the back, too. You did an awesome job!

Peggy W profile image

Peggy W 7 years ago from Houston, Texas

Thanks for choosing one of my hubs to highlight. It certainly added to the numbers viewing it and it is quite a compliment to be included in this mix. This group of people on hubpages is great! Getting to know more and more of them is such a pleasure!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Hi, Peggy! Well, you're welcome, but don't forget to thank yourself. You put together a good hub, and that's what we look for!

I have to agree with you about the HubPages community. I've met such wonderful people here, it's a great place. You just wait, in a few month's time you'll have tons of HP friends.

Great idea Shirls - just that extra oomph to give the newbies a push.. Way to go girl.. now, let me get down to some readin n votin


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thanks, Affiliater, but I can't take the credit. Ryan Hupfer put this idea together and oversees it, and Funride, Ripplemaker and I sort of 'run it' for the week.

Enjoy your reading and thanks for giving fellow hubbers your support!


D. CHAKRABORTY 7 years ago

Should Mentally Challenged Kids Be Aliented From Their Families

AN EXCELLENT WRITE UP WHICH REFLECTS THE INNER EMOTIONS OF THE CHILD AND PARENT SUFFERING FROM SUCH SYNDROME.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thank-you for coming by and voting, D. Chakraborty! You're right, Anjalichugh did a terrific job on that subject.


ProCW profile image

ProCW 7 years ago from South Carolina

my vote is in...

gotta love the ambigrams hub!!!

can we vote twice? :) it needs to catch up! :)

ProCW


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thx, CW! Yes, that is a good hub. Sorry, no - only one vote per customer! :)


Elena. profile image

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid

I was gonna ask the same thing, though I had the nagging feeling that would be cheating! :-) Curiously, I'm pushing for the same hub as ProCW! I loved the ambigrams hub!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

I know, Elena. A couple of weeks ago, I wanted so badly to vote on 4 of them. It was sad to leave 3 behind.

You're both right about that hub being good. I had never heard of an ambigram before, but they look really neat.

Voted for Anjali. Superb hub


Birte Edwards 7 years ago

Hi Shirley

I saw your nomination immediately, but being new here I had no idea of the meaning. I felt very honored to have my first entry nominated.

As I am realizing the importance of the nomination, I decided it was time to get back and thank you.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thanks for voting, Hippatrick!

ulfromother, your comment was grabbed by the spam catchers because you posted your self-promotional link. If you'd like to leave a comment responding to anything in this hub, I'm sure they'll let it through.

Birte! My dear, your hub was nominated because you wrote and constructed a good hub. I know what you mean, though. I think when it's a surprise, you really feel that little extra excitement, as well. ;) And you're welcome from the HubNugget team.

It isn't just me that works on HubNuggets. It is a team effort with Ryan Hupfer, Funride, Ripplemaker and myself. We all have input (with Ryan making sure we do it right, thank God!) and then one or the other of us do the hub listing the final picks.

Honest folks, you are in this hub because you did a good job!

Hope to see your names on the next list of nominees, too!

Once again you have saved me some surf time by finding some good hubs to read. I think I will start with the top one since I too have rocks in my head, oops bed. Or actually in my case on my headboard.

Mcarolyn, boy can I cook, huh? Glad you enjoyed them!

LOL, Dan. Glad to help, hope you get a chance to enjoy them all.

I was torn between a few for best one. They are all a good start for the newbies. Good way to find the new writes too! Nice work Shirley.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Thanks, C.S.

It can be really tough to pick just one, can't it? The newbies do an awesome job!
