    Hi everybody, it`s time to get HubNuggets rolling once again and we need everyone of you to start voting to choose which ones will feature on the next week newsletter wink.

    http://z.hubpages.com/u/747182_f520.jpg

    That`s right, this time we found 10 great "golden" hubs from 10 great new Hubbers!

    As you all know it`s not easy to start making good hubs for the first time but thankfully it`s possible. After searching amongst more than 1000 new hubs we were able to find lots of good ones from which we have chose the ones we believe are the best 10.

    Now you are all invited to read those hubs and vote! And if you think that they deserve to be read by everybody please share them with all your friends and family (everybody, and I mean everybody, can post their vote smile).

    http://hubpages.com/hub/hubnuggets-jan12-2009

    Have fun! wink

    What is the criteria?

  3. funride profile image73
    funrideposted 9 years ago

    Hi LondonGirl, the HubNuggets are Hubs that have been published by a fairly new Hubber and that have a decent HubScore. They are pulled out from a report that pulls a HUGE list of Hubs that fill all the requirements of what Hubpages think a hubNugget should be and from that list we decide which of the HubNuggets are of good enough quality to add to the newsletter that Hubpages team send out each week.

    When we choose them we want them to be Hubs that encourage quality writing and are also an interesting read. So the criteria is: newly hubs, well written, nicely presented, from fairly new Hubbers about whom we can know a little from their profile, etc.

    Of course there will always be nice hubs which are not chosen for HubNuggets but that´s because we are choosing from a list of more than 1000 hubs and we can only pick 10 of them.

    Hope this is satisfying.

    Have you post your vote yet? wink

      I'm afraid that picture doesn't really motivate me to vote on the hubnuggets. It really just motivates me to puke. That is some N A S T Y looking food! haha

    Hello All,

    I am very excited that one of my article was nominated for the Hubnuggets.

    My article is the " Shadow of Depression". I wrote to try to inform people about depression and how it not only effects the people who are depressed but also how some of us miss the signs of depression in the people we are closest to.

    PLease read my article and see if you think it is a worthy article for Hubnuggets.

    Thank you so much for the nomination.

    Best Wishes,
    Kelly

    I too was so surprised to get the email from funride saying my hub made the top ten list.  I'm curious to see this newsletter.  I haven't received a hubpages newsletter yet, but I recently joined two weeks ago.  I keep watching the poll, and I'm off to an early lead!  People must like my money saving tips!
