HubNugget Wannabes, Come on Down!

Updated on November 12, 2009

You May Be Next On The HubNugget is Right!

Come on down, Wannabes and Readers! We've got some great contestants this week on The HubNugget is Right.

There's no wheel spinning, price guessing or costumes required in this game, just great writing and good layout.

How to Play the Game

This one's easy. Ten great Wannabe HubNuggets have been chosen to sit in the contestant's box. Readers will cast their vote in the poll for their favourite hub. At the end of the voting week (Wednesday), the five hubbers with the highest percentage of votes win.

Tell Them What They Won, Johnny

Our winners get an all expenses paid spotlight in the weekly newsletter! *crowd goes wild*

But that's not all! Each of our five winners will receive a personal email form letter of congratulations from one of the HubNuggets team member.

There's still more! The five lucky winners will have their hub name and win mentioned in the forums.

*lots of applause, ooh's and aah's*

Okay, now you all know how to play and what the prizes are. Sooo, HubNuggets Wannabes, come on down!

But First, A Word From Our Sponsors

Ryan (Hup) Hupfer - Communicator of Awesomeness and official HubPages employee who oversees the HubNuggets and newsletters (and much more). Hup is like the judges on Jeopardy. He has final word and makes the official announcement of winners.

Shirley Anderson - That's me! HubNuggets Team Leader.Think of me as the show's producer.

B.T. EvilPants - Great freelance writer, butter tart fiend and oh, so lovable! B.T. is our resident jackalope. Working closely with his fellow team members, he particpates in choosing the perfect contestants for our weekly contest. Hard working jackalope that he is, B.T. takes his turn at writing the HubNuggets hub.

Patty Inglish, MS - Great at EVERYTHING and one of the nicest ladies ever! Patty helps keep the HN wheel spinning. Prolific and good at everything, she can pick a good nugget at twenty paces, whip up the hub when it's her turn, and be home in time for dinner. Don't even bother trying to slip a substandard hub past this one!

Ripplemaker - HubNuggets' sweet, angelic cheerleader and HubMobile driver. She's like a breath of cheerful fresh air for our weekly contest.

*** Announcing Our Newest HubNuggets Team Members! ***

The HubNuggets Team recently won a couple of great prizes, themselves. We have two new additions to our team. We are really excited to have Zsuzsy Bee and RedElf join our ranks to help bring you the best HubNuggets experience that we can. Starting next week, they will assist in choosing some terrific Wannabes for your voting pleasure. In a few weeks, they'll be writing their own HN hubs, so be sure to watch for that.

Please welcome these lovely ladies, if you get the chance.

*** See You Later, ProCW ***

We aren't saying good-bye to our good friend, ProCW. He'll back as soon as he can. Right now though, he has other time committments that take him away from us for a while.

Come On Down!

You may be our next contestant on The HubNugget is Right!

      Wow, we had a lot of wonderful company while I was away doing other things!

      Thank-you everyone for your kind nugget words and for coming by to support our newbie writers. We know it's difficult to choose just one but that is a testament to the quality of wordsmiths that HP attracts. We get the cream of the crop here. :)

      Good luck to all of our Wannabes. You are another talented group that we are happy to showcase to others.

      Michelle, thank-you for passing on Daisy love. Back atcha both. :)

      Hey, BT, you should win something for first place. Tell him what he won, Johnny. Oops, Johnny's on break with Vanna, sorry.

      You're right about it getting more difficult to choose a favourite!

      Hi, NuggetPicker Zsuzsy! Now that you have been officially sworn into HubNugget office, welcome once again to the team! We were all nuggety excited when you agreed to join us.

      Re your serious comment, I couldn't agree with you more. I've seen it happen with my own eyes that a hubber is so encouraged that they 'blossom' very quickly. It's a heartwarming experience for us, that you'll soon start to feel, yourself.

      Honestly, Zsuzsy, we're so stinkin' happy that you're here with us!

      With one hand held over my heart and the other raised high over my head holding a stray squirming Jack-a-lope I promise to uphold the constitution and secret or sacred laws of the famous 'NuggetPickers' with the help of my lucky rabbits foot. :)

      If I can be serious here for just one tiny moment. Thank you team for inviting me in. I look forward to being a part of the Hubnuggets Team. I firmly believe that being the author of one of the chosen 'Wannabes' is one of the best incentives that can be given to her or him to keep writing many, many more great hubs.

      Thank you again team I will do my best to snoop out the best, shiniest 'gold-nuggets'.

      Wow, I had a hard time choosing once again. All of the hubs deserve a top vote. Congrats Hubnuggeteers a job well done. 'NuggetPickers' super-duper choices.

      regards Zsuzsy
