Meet the HubNuggets Team

Who 'We' Are and What 'We' Do

Ever wonder who is behind the famous HubNuggets contest? 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!

Everything's Coming Up HubNuggets

Last week, we had a blooming bouquet of Springtime HubNuggets.  Naturally, after spring planting comes the sprouting of a new crop.  With that in mind, we have chosen a fresh batch of HubNugget Wannabe's for you to enjoy.


All of the authors of these hubs are fresh and new to the HubPages community. Since we love new Hubbers, we want to encourage and commend them for writing and building quality hubs.


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 potential HubNuggets 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 all!

      You got it, JamaGenee. It's usually a tough call for me, as well. I'm glad that you were able to narrow it down to your favourite and not lose sleep like poor Elena.

      Thanks for voting, JamaGenee.

      Oh, the stress of it all! Two hubs up there that I enjoyed equally! Which to vote for? But wait! This is a writers community, right? Vote for the writing, right? Whew! Done!

      Ohhh, now I'm curious! First of all about how you and B.T. agreed to something and secondly about who this mysterious new hubber is! Intrigue!

      Oh wait, you said you forced B.T. so all's right with the world.

      Your exclamation points are contagious! Thanks for voting and thank B.T. also!

      Mayhmong, you're right - we have a lot of great new hubbers, including you.

      By the way, aren't you as happy and bubbly as Spongebob Square Pants? ;)

      This is tough! I like most of their hubs!

      These new hubbers are pretty creative and much more well organized than my loudsy hubs. Well keep us updated to see who wins!

      Why yes, Captain.  I like mine with plum sauce.   You and Chi-Chi should try them sometime.  Since Chi-Chi comes pre-sauced, you won't have to worry about choosing her favourite condiment.

      Hi, Angel Michelle.  Yes, HubPages and HubNuggets has become a family affair.  I think it's great!  That was a good email, wasn't it?

      ProCW, I'm sure you're right.  Maybe people can just hold the fish up to the screen.  Once the fish points to its fav, the owner can do the clicking for them.  :)

      Shirley - to answer your question on "How do fish vote?" I really don't know... but I bet if someone encourages their fish to vote, the fish would at least tip the scales in their favor! :)

      Everything is indeed growing when one is spreading love.  Thanks for sharing the email in the forum thread Shirley.  It made me teary eyed.  Now we have a mother-daughter team too...wow!  :-)  Keep voting guys. And yes, you sure can ride my hubnugget mobile. Hahaha

      CC is about as subtle as a neon sign, isn't he lphigenia?

      I didn't know that we had a mother/daughter team in this week's HubNuggets! That's so cool.

      Speaking of which, I rec'd this email from a mother regarding last week's list. Give it a read, it is quite something:

      https://hubpages.com/forum/topic/12582

      GT, I don't even know is Schwag is doing one this week. You might not want to wait.

      Funride, way to spread the HubNuggets word! Thanks.

      TRT, I'm so glad you enjoyed them. Thank-you for the thank-you! :)

      Thanks for voting, everybody! I'm sure that our new Hubbers are feelin' the love!

      C.. C. - your 'subtle' hint was noted - but my very own kiddie is a Hub Nugget nominee - so I can only vote for the tennis fan ! She's ousted me - I've been up there for the last 3 weeks - but who better to be ousted by than my own daughter who loves tennis and is a true and very knowledgeable tennis fan and also a talented writer - especially about tennis ?

      Elena - I can see you, now - yay! I'm sorry the voting process brought you pain but it has been known to happen to people. That's the price we pay for having such great new hubbers. It's always so tough to choose! Thanks for picking one, though. Sweet dreams.

      Angel Michelle, thank-you! I didn't know that you have a HubNugget mobile - how fun! Will you take me for a ride sometime? After we've voted for our favourite HubNugget, of course. :)

      ProCW, I hope the ladies gave you a turn at the poll and you had an easier time than poor Elena! Thanks for voting and for reminding people to invite all their friends, family and pets to come and enjoy the HubNuggets! Anyone can vote, whether they are a member of HubPages or not.

      Question ProCW - how do fish vote?

      Did you vote for CB Radios, John? I'll bet you did. :)

If I get dreadful nightmares out of this, I'll come back and request my vote back to cast it again! Only to repeat the cycle as many times as necessary until I manage a peaceful night! Laugh!
