The Wonderful World of HubPages

Updated on November 22, 2014
Source

Welcome

Welcome to the wonderful world of hubpages. It's a wonderful place to be. The sun is always shining, the birds are always singing, and everyone loves everybody else. You never hear a harsh or unkind word. This is where we go to create and enjoy the creation of others. Come in and visit with us.

The First sight of HubPages Heaven

The trees majestically towered over the rambling cobblestone path. Over the sounds of crunching footsteps the cheerful sounds of a myriad of birds chirping and singing to each other floated down from the trees to the delighted group. Occasionally the sound of a rustle in a bush alongside the pathway reached the group causing them to stop and peer into the bushes hoping to catch sight of the small animals responsible for the slight sound. Unable to spot them the group would silently move on each unwilling to bring to an end the chance to catch a glimpse of the wildlife surrounding them. Each of the hubber silently wondering just how this place could get better.

As they got closer to their destination the trees began to thin out and they were able to catch glimpses of color peeking through the leaves. They rounded a curve in the path there before them was the beginning of a breathtaking garden. The cobblestone path continued to meander lazily this time through the most gorgeous flowering plants. There were various shades of pink and purples climbing over a stone wall and each other.

Where is this path leading us?

Could there be more?

What should we expect?

What fun to explore!

The Garden of Holidays and Celebrations

The first garden seemed custom made for Redlf and Enelle Lamb. The minute they saw it Enelle wrapped her tail around herself in a cat hug and RedElf began to purr. They were sure to find many wonderful hubs hidden here by hubbers.

As they walked into their garden they mesmerized by the beautiful fragrant flowers in a rainbow of brilliant colors. Delicate Butterflies floated lazily from bloom to bloom while large fat bumble bees buzzed about the blossoms unable to resist the allure of their scent.

Over to the side was a small pond with fish jumping merrily as if to say, "Come on in, the waters fine." Surrounding the pond was a collection of flat rocks just the perfect size to stretch out on and enjoy the warmth of the sun. Oh yes, this was going to be the purrrrfect day. This was the perfect spot to find all of those wonderful well whiten hubs.

The Garden of Religion and Philosophy

The next garden was claimed quickly by Ladyjane and KoffeeKlatch Gals, it looked to be a perfect fit. To them it seemed to epitomize the perfect spot to relax and find the hubbers hubs. Talking quietly, they drifted towards a set of steps made out of huge gray rocks leading to an area that held a large wooden swing surrounded by a sea of beautiful flowers in every color imaginable

Further down the path was a magnificent oak tree it's limbs stretched out in such a way that it led one to believe it was placed there for the sole purpose of providing the perfect amount of shade for the bench beneath it. To the left of the tree was a picturesque waterfall with water flowing over groupings of rocks buffeted by flowers that seem to tumble willy-nilly down with the water.

As they settled on the bench beneath they were delighted to by the aroma of fragrantly scented herbs floating gently on the breeze that cooled their skin and lightly ruffled their hair. Oh yes, this was the perfect spot to find those well written hubs.

The Garden of Politics and Social Issues

Arriving at the last garden Patty Inglish and Zsuzsy Bee just knew this was the one meant for them. The other gardens had been so beautiful they couldn't imagine what their garden would be like. The first thing they saw was a magnificent archway covered in vines just dripping with beautiful deep red blossoms. As they walked through the archway they were greeted by a breeze of perfumed air filled with delightful aromas. There was everything from sweet to spicy to exotic. Their first glance of their special garden took their breath away. Every where they looked there seemed to be a sea of randomly placed flowers, each section more beautiful than the next.

The bubbling brook seemed to play a melodious tune as it flowed and bubbled it's way downstream. The grouping of flowers in riotous colors put them in mind of an Old English Country Garden. There was a small bridge arching gently over the brook, the perfect spot to stand and enjoy the flowing water and the flowers.

There by the brook was a large tree shading two small white filigree tables each with two inviting comfortable looking chairs. They seemed to beckon to them to come, sit, enjoy the peaceful, relaxing, musical sound of the water. Oh yes, this was the perfect spot to find all the well written hubs.

      Wow!! What an honor to not only be nominated for HubNuggets but ending up as one of the winners as well. THANK YOU all for your support and for reading my "ramblings." It has only been 3 weeks for me in this world of hubs and hubbers, but I can already tell that this is a rockin' place to hang out. Thanks, again, for all the support and I look forward to what is hopefully a long tenure for me on HubPages.

      Love the hub Gal, all those gorgeous pics are getting me antsy to go digging in the garden dirt instead of digging snow drifts from the driveway.

      Did my civic duty read all the great hubs and voted for my three faves, which was not easy once again.

      Congrats to all you nominees. Remember to promote, promote and promote your hub, get all your friends and relatives even Auntie Ethel and Uncle Buck to drop by and vote for your hub. They do not need to be Hubpages members to vote. Good luck.

      Stay warm everyone

      Hi KK Gals.. Love this hub! I was nominated (and actually won!)a few months ago and it really boosted my confidence here on HubPages- not to mention the boost in traffic and several new followers! I've been plugging away ever since :0) I have been wanting to participate in some of the challenges but I'm still a bit shy I guess.

      Thank you for sharing :0)

      What lovely gardens :D Since the groundhog didn't see its shadow, we (we meaning the west coast) should be seeing the robins in no time :D (Crocuses are already up!!)

      What a great hub Gals - It was a tough decision to choose only one from each category, but I managed :D Voted up and voted!

      All I can say is to be nominated is an honor to me. Then to have the song, "Wonderful World" shown here, well that song means more to me than I can say here.

      My dream of writing has now been realized.

      I have been nominated for the distinguished hubnugget prize.

      Making your life count. Thank you for the nomination. I am blessed to be part of such a rich group of hubs.

      Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

      Love the Gardens, Gals! What a wonderful idea to showcase the HubNuggets!

      Congratulations to all the nominees!

      Howard, there used to be only 10 nominees to vote for each week. The voting was closed in the hubs you checked out because each contest is only open for a week - we hold a new contest every week.

      Now there are six in each of three categories, for a total of 18 nominees.

      The nominating or selecting is done by the HubNuggets team each week, and then the final 18 are showcased in a round up hub like this one, where everyone is encouraged to come and vote for their favorites in each category.

      Hope this helps, but do check out the learning center link. :D:D

      Howard S. Visit http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/hubnuggets It should help answer many of your questions. Also, if you see a new hub by a hubber who has been with hubpages leass than 60 days, has an author score of 75 or more, a hub score of at least 55 and has been published within the last 7 days, contact one of the HubNuggets Team and let them know. They will certainly consider it, but there is no guarentee that it will become a HubNugget Wannabe.

      Thanks for visiting the hub, I hope I helped. If there are any other questions please get back in touch. Make sure you vote.

      I am terribly confused, and this may not be the best place to ask it, but the most blatant example of confusion is in the first paragraph above: "This is where we go to help decide who will be on the HubNuggets Wannabe List." I've been back and forth through several hubs explaining the HubNuggets Wobbleknees program and the majority view is that the Wannabees are the ten finalists for voting. The quote is saying the Wannabees are the result of the vote. Also, the link on that sentence goes to a past list, which is closed I think.

      Third--and here's my question--one of the HubNuggets hubs stated that anyone can nominate a qualifying hub for consideration, even though all 2500-3000 qualifying hubs are automatically considered. If one wanted to nominate a hub, who is the contact? What is the process? Or does "nominate" in this case simply mean voting for one of the ten finalists? Shirley's hub doesn't elucidate. Is there another place to look? Thanks.
