Thank you very much, HP Staff for choosing my hub about joining a church community, as HOTD. I am slowly coming out of the shock as I found out a short time ago by checking my junkmail box. My first word, uttered out loud was, "Whuuuuuuut?!" I could not believe it. Instead of opening the email, I sent it to my inbox and went straight to HP to sign-in and see this for my self (still thinking it couldn't be true). To my surprise, there it was on the sign-in page. Wow. I was wondering why all those comments on this sleepy hub were coming to my phone this morning!
I am honored and appreciate the recognition, especially for a topic which is very close to my heart and soul. Thanks again and thanks to whoever may have nominated my hub.
Oh yeah, I saw that. I didn't realize it was yours. Congratulations Jan.
Congratulations Jan, well done. I bet that was a surprise.
Congratulations! It's an honor you definitely earned.
Congradulations... how many views did you need. I am just getting back to writing again here and I seem not be able to my two articles published or feature...any tips you can give would be great. Thanks LeeNess
I don't think you need views for HOTD. It has to do with following the format and rules for a stellar hub, defined in the Learning Center. Even when you do that, there is no guarantee for HOTD. I suggest focusing on creating the best quality hubs you can with lots of capsules by making good use of the hubtool, researching the topic and adding links to sources that will back up what you are presenting, and most importantly, good grammar and spelling.
Really, I didn't know that. When I see newbies get HOTD, I assumed it didn't. Thanks, Melissa.
Congrats Jan, it is an awesome hub and even better when the topic is close to one's heart for sure! Blessings, Faith Reaper
Congrats jashares on this achievement. this is really something....
Congratulations, Jan! You're a great Hubber - you truly deserve the attention!
They always choose great hubs I hope to also one day have the honor of one of my hubs being picked for HOTD.
OMG!!! For those who have gotten HOTD, how long does the traffic bump last? This is sooooo cool, lovin' it! Just wish it would spread over to other hubs, LOL!
I had a huge rise and then it tailed off a bit but nevertheless remains quite high up on my list of Hubs.
I'm so new I squeak. Where do you go to vote on HoTD? Where do you nominate HoTD? On Rising Star, the link takes me to the hub explaining how it works, but no link to the voting or nomination screen. I find this process very difficult to navigate being new. I read the learning center hubs several times, wrote to HP and asked how, no answer, so now I'm asking in forum. TY to anyone who can answer with detailed instructions. I'm not dumb, but obviously I'm challenged in locating these two areas. lol
No worries, Mary McShane. I should have said "recommend" not "nominate." ECs on nominated, HOTD is suggested or recommended to HP staff. They basically hand pick them most of the time but they say that hubbers can send a hub link via email to a hub they feel should be considered for HOTD. Sorry for the confusion.
Where is HoTD posted for everyone to read it?
When you sign into HP it's the first thing you see. Actually, before you sign in, when you Google "HubPages," it's the first thing searchers see.
I've never received one either. In fact I just had the opposite happen. HP just notified me that one of my hubs had been unpublished for adult content. They had passed it and it was featured. I added an eBay and Amazon capsule and it was reviewed and then unpublished...weird.
I hope for you, too, lovebuglena. It is an unexpected thrill that every good hubber deserves.

It's hard to imagine that I've been a writer on Hub Pages for 8 wonderful years. I owe my growth as a writer to many of my Hub Page friends. Loving my Hub Page life!

My latest Hub has achieved a score of 96! This is a first, thanks to Margaret Schindel and Marisa Wright for pointing me in the right direction. Without your help, I might still be floundering in deep water. Thank you so much.

I received an email invitation to do a news interview from a TV reporter in MO who found my articles and thought it was cool that I share what I do. I’m not local to the station so it probably won’t come to fruition but it was flattering nonetheless. Just thought I’d share.A big thanks to HP...
