It would be great to start out the new year with a writing competition. What do you think the chances are?
It would be great to see a list of titles with entry and closing dates for each competition posted at the beginning of each year. What do you think?
I only wanted to pop in to say Hello.
I think you have great ideas.
Who would judge these articles?
I love your beautiful photo of the butterfly.
I'm sure you took that photo.
There is very little you cannot do!
HubPages staff would judge the competition and award the prizes.
I was fortunate enough to win one last year - the most money I have earned in any one month since being on hubpages two years ago - very generous and so lovely to receive the recognition.
Yes, I did take the butterfly image - the little critters are a big part of my life and my macro photography:)
Have a very happy new year DJ
Hi Sally. I think that is a great idea. I love writing contests. Count me in.
Well then, we just need to persuade those over worked HubPages staff that we need a little encouragement to write some quality hubs for them.
I agree. A contest always results in a big surge of hubs, so it benefits HP and all of us. If they do have a contest, I hope there will be more than one or two categories. I would go for poetry and creative writing.
Judges could be picked by the staff - three judges for each category would be about right. The judges would have to be quite knowledgeable and successful in and about the category they judge.
A competition could be really cool! We could definitely have different sections for different types of writing, ie, fiction, how-tos, poetry, etc. I would definitely be interested.
Even for someone without much time to enter competitions, a prepared list of events throughout the year might give me time to at least consider entering. Knowing the subject and time deadline would be a good incentive. Excellent idea.
chef-de-jour Good ideas are sometimes not enough. One can live in hope though - a response from staff would be nice. I certainly appreciate your response and support, thank you.
They keep employing new editors, why not appoint someone full time to organising and running contests?

Do you think that writing 2-3 quality hubs per week is the right approach or its all about the quantity because the more hubs you write the more traffic you can get to your website (I guess so!)

I write 5 hubs a day. 2 of them are quality hubs that I enjoy writing and put my most effort to, the rest are there to share some kind of information I think is interesting. But these are not as good and I actually...

Honestly, HP needs to step up and start filtering their input. I have been here for over 5 years and I have watched a lot of changes, but what I see as what must be the most damaging to HP (ergo we writers) with Google...

My husband thinks it would be a great idea if I started looking into creating my own bakery. I do love to bake, and I create some crazy delicious cookies however I'm not sure I would be cut out for the baking industry....
