WOW!!! I'm so excited to be in this list. Its so funny - yesterday I started looking up stuff on HubNuggets and I thought, "Oh, I'll never get on that- maybe I'll just try for the HubMob someday".... I had no idea!....(Charia - thank you!). Its an honor to be among such talent! Thank you very much! Just being acknowledged gives me courage (I'm a shy writer...) and incentive to continue. Thanks again!

Laura, you're a great writer! It's easy to see why your hub was one of the chosen.

I have to apologize to all of the Wannabes. My computer crashed (is that the right techy word?) and eventually I got it running again by restoring the system. That means that last week's winners and this week's nominees have not received their titillating form emails yet. Sorry! You'll receive them shortly.

Good luck in the contest, Laura. Don't forget to promote the absolute bajeebers out of your hub so that it gets lots of votes!

It's hard to pick just one, isn't Jane? Thanks for voting!

EMO, congrats to you for your win last week! Thanks for supporting your hubbers, I know they appreciate it.

I know it was the jackalope, Patty. I read about it in the Enquirer, so I know it's true. :) Can't wait to read your book!

Those stories about Jessica Rabbit and myself are nothing but a fabric of lies! I demand a retraction! Also, any and all reports of gravy related malfeasance on my part, have been wildly exaggerated!

I still voted, though. Awesome job (except for the scandal thing)!


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Umm, BT.....photos....film at 11....??....

I'm a little confused re the gravy scandal. I heard that you did it.

Thanks for voting, though. What a trooper! Neither bad press nor scandal or even paparazzi can keep you from performing your civic hub duty.

I'd say 'sorry' for making the choice difficult, but I just can't because it means that we have exceptional talent here amongst our Wannabes.

Looks like the hostile work environment hub hit a chord with a lot of people these days! Even I left a long comment over there... :) Most everyone has encountered a jerk of a boss at some time or another in their work life. The comments on my hub choice voted for this week were all quite telling and informative too of other people's experiences.

All interesting and great hubs, folks, keep writing!

Well perhaps, but honestly I think this is all as unpredictable as the weather and is not worth the effort involved.


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Hi, Denny. Voting choice noted, thanks for elaborating. I believe you are right about most people having a boss like that. Perhaps it struck a cord in a lot of people, especially with the current economy. Thanks for sharing and for your support of our newest writers.

Katy, Katy, Katy. It's supposed to be unpredictable, it's a contest. :) What we have discovered (the HubNuggets team) is that being chosen really gives our new hubbers the encouragement that they sometimes need. Also, it's great practice for them to promote their hubs and draw traffic. Whether they get in the top 5 or not, they are all winners. It also gives others models to look at and think about it as they improve their own hubs because the newbies have to fit a certain standard before even being considered from the sometimes more than 2,500 entries.

I know that you've read and voted before and that all the nervous Wannabes have appreciated your support of them.

I don't know if that helps at all but I'm glad that you brought it up. Thanks!
