It seems that by some miracle I've won Rising Star not once, but twice! I am totally shocked, pleasantly surprised, and absolutely motivated to keep on writing. I won a few weeks ago on a hub about feeding dogs raw eggs, then again this week for a cookie recipe using coconut oil.
At this point in time I only have one Rising Star Accolade on my profile. Will I get two? I don't mean to sound greedy but I am just so darn proud!
Congratulations on that second win, Sugahware! Because your situation is so rare, the Accolade does not actually accomodate counts like some others do (e.g. the Featured Hub Accolade), and for that I apologize... but again, congratulations!!
Congrats on the accomplishment, Sugahware! Do keep up the great writing!
Good for you! Even one means you are a step above many other writers, and your star is truly rising. Be proud and keep writing!
Congrats! I don't know whether you get two accolades on your profile for the two achievements.
That is so awesome!! Congratulations and keep up the good work!!
Congratulations and welcome to our awesome hubpages community, I know the feeling for sure! Keep up the good work, you will do great here as long as you remain active and never quite writing. Good luck!
I really appreciate HP having the Rising Star award. I was feeling somewhat discouraged that it would take so long before I'd have a lot of hubs, be able to make money, etc. It was great to get this pat on the back along the way.
That's awesome sugahware, I need to check out those hubs and see how amazingly award worthy they are! I actually won two as well but for some reason it didnt show up twice. Weird huh? On well, at least you know it for yourself! Have a great one!
Congratulations on being a two-time winner! Simone is right - that is very rare! I wish HP had some way of adding a tiny badge to the accolades to signify this - (like the 'oak leaf cluster' the military has). Maybe someday that will be possible. You certainly deserve that recognition!
Thanks Marcy! Yes, some sort of accolade or badge would be nice. For now I'm just happy to be recognized and I am totally amazed at the response my hubs have received. I am so grateful for hubpages. It is really helping me build my confidence as a writer. Thanks for your encouragement!
Congratulations, Sugahware! Two times the Rising Star Accolade? Phew! That's an achievement! I'm crossing my fingers to see if I can get my own Rising Star!
Congratulations..I too have won 2 rising stars..but only 1 accolade

I am so so happy right now! My total views have finnally climbed to over 1,000 and one of my Hubs has been selected as a Rising Star. I've been steadily working on improving my Hubs and apparently it is working! How excited were you to hit 1,000 views?

Does the rising star award help your traffic overall?I have recently achieved the rising star accolade, and I'm wondering whether it makes a long term difference to your stats? For example, after the newsletter has went out and everything has settled, do you still get a steady stream of traffic to...

This morning I got an email from HP and sure enough there is now a 1 year accolade on my profile. Doesn't seem possible.It's been a lot of fun (and work!). Many thanks to those here that have helped a noob learn the ropes - without the kindness and generosity of hubbers it would not...
