HubNuggets Team

Ryan Hupfer - HubPages Communicator of Awesomeness, HubNugget Connoisseur and the crazy guy in the HubPages promotional video.

funride - Portugal's very own rider of fun and writer of funner! Um fantástico parte da equipe.

ripplemaker - The Philippines is lucky to have her! And we're even more lucky!!! She's also a fellow theatre-type!!!

Shirley Anderson - This creative Canuk certainly can chow down on some HubNuggets!!! I don't see how she stays so thin!!!

ProCW - (Me.) I'm the newest addition to the HubNugget Team!

Bite down, but not too hard! We're deliverin' 24k pure gold nuggets!

This week's HubNuggets aren't the tastiest hubs like last week's Grade A Prime HubNuggets. These HubNuggets are of a different nature - entirely.

They have luster. They have shine.

They could befit a royal-born line!

Get 'em while the gettin's good,

Just because we say you should!

We have a limited quantity:10 of 'em! And you get to select the TOP 5!!! That's right, these are hand-picked HubNuggets and are 24k pure gold - the highest of quality (.999 purity) and are top of the line!

Wanna have one of your hubs selected as a HubNugget?

First you have to join HubPages! Then you'll need to create at least one quality hub. Then we'll go through our list of quality hubs and select the best of the best! Keep a look-out in the forum to see if one of your hubs has been selected!

Please note: We don't want no fool's gold!

You can vote for your favorite Golden HubNuggets on the following dates:

  • March 06, 2009

  • March 07, 2009

  • March 08, 2009

  • March 09, 2009

  • March 10, 2009

  • March 11, 2009

Update: Voting is now officially over. However, you may still cast your vote to let these great new hubbers know how much you appreciate their hard work!

On March 11, 2009...

the HubPages Newsletter will be received by HubPages' thousands of hubbers. It will include the TOP FIVE 24k pure gold HubNuggets of choice below.

Please note: Even after the tallies are gathered on March 11, 2009, the numbers in the poll below may continue to change, as voters will still be allowed to vote.

VOTE HERE!!!

Which is your favorite 24k pure gold HubNugget? Sift carefully! You don't wanna miss even the tiniest golden flecks!

See results

Drumroll Please...

      I was referring to the new reading material that you now have at your fingertips... :) (The other nominees.) hehe... but I can certainly understand why you wouldn't have gotten it. :)

      Yes. It is a weekly program sponsored by HubPages. We have a team of active Hubbers that goes through over a thousand possible HubNuggets and then we narrow it down to the best of them!!!

      You were selected --- twice!!! :)

Send your cousin's friend an e-mail. Don't forget to tell your brother to vote. This is a quick survey and your help could really benefit these writers.

      Send any info out via email to your family/friends? it's easy - look at the bottom of this page... see the "email this page" button?

      There are TONS of ways to get the info out and you can SOAR way beyond the others...

      Of course everyone can read this and could potentially do the same thing... so it would pretty much be a whomever-gets-to-it-and-does-the-best-job-of-promotion-type thing... :)

      Thanks ProCW.

      Just a word of advice to "others" tho... Don't promote the "clicking", because I learned the hard way... Adsense disabled my account for this reason, and because I was unaware of the "rules", I am awaiting an approval of appeal... I learned, and now I am hoping to get my adsense back... Until then, and even if they don't approve my appeal, I plan to keep hubbing...

      Thanks for all the advice!
