How do you get nominated for a Hubbie Award

    I created a hubpages account 4 months ago and started using it just a week ago ( poor me, can't get nominated for a Raising Star ) ... So I wandered .. How do I get nominated for the 2013 Hubbies?

    I mean writing stellar hubs, etc. I understand that part ... but how exactly do these hubs get nominated .. hub of the day winners, or most comments/traffic/etc.?

    Thanks in advance,
    ID Ivanoff

      When the yearly Hubbie Contest comes around, there will be a period of time when people can go to a designated page provided by HubPages Staff and type in the screen name of any Hubber they want for any or all of the categories presented. It's all write-in votes and you can vote for yourself.

    Thanks a lot! I was really interested in the topic.

    Btw, my bad that I didn't posted this in the "Answers" section of hubpages.

    Again thanks for the answer.

      It's better here in the Forums, not the "Answers."

    i think you should write good content and also involve youself in others work here at hubpages. Help other hubbers with what you got and also give sincere compliments as comments! This will give you more time in the spotlight and that will help you

      So you should do all those things only to gain spotlight time?

        I don't think it's simply for the sake of "spotlight time".  Here's why... and in this response, I've broken explorational's response into its component topics:

        Writing good content is essential. 
        You're already doing this, in my opinion -- I've just shared your "50 Ways" Hub about baking soda via Facebook, because I think it's an amazing title and a very informative Hub!  I have only recently come to understand the consummate importance of providing information for online readers in a concise and highly attractive manner -- and from what I have seen, you appear to have a serious handle on this aspect of online writing.

        Helping Other Hubbers.
        I have noticed that many Hubbers post requests for feedback on their early Hubs.  I've considered doing this myself, as I've only recently begun writing for HubPages... but I decided I'd rather go it on my own.  This is not to say that I refuse the help... never would I do that!... but I personally prefer to learn what I can on my own before asking for assistance.

        With that said, there are those who do NOT learn best through a "hands-on" method.  While I may be someone who prefers to "do it" and learn by doing, those seeking assistance in the forums may not learn in the same way.  Your Hub layout and Hubber score indicate that you are not a new Hubber and are thus far more familiar with the elements involved in designing and presenting a Hub.  Helping those new to the site can only increase your following, and may in fact introduce you to ideas you might not have previously considered.  As Confucius said:  "To teach is to learn twice."

        Offering appreciation is something I'm still getting the nerve to do.... I'm still new to the community and just getting over the intimidation of writing online.  I'm sure you've already done it on many occasions!  I do it primarily because I admire those who are able to gain a significant following -- I noted that you have over six thousand followers, which is amazing! -- and because I simply love what I read.  It's just a part of participation for me and, I imagine, for you as well.

        In short, I think explorational's response was simply geared towards building community.  I've been impressed by the interactions and relationships I've seen evolving here at HubPages even in the short time I've been an active member -- and I'm looking forward to learning more and more as I go along.  smile
