    Hi there, friends! Today I'm very excited to announce the first winner of the monthly Editor's Choice bonus. (Each month for the next year, a different Editor's Choice Hub will be randomly awarded $50 as part of our recent Editor's Choice Upgrade.)

    January's winner is Hubber Julia Eppehimer with her Hub Dark Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies. Well done, Julia!

      Hooray. It's good to read about some new programs that reward the writers. Congratulations to the winner in January, Julia. I'll have to check out that recipe.

      Congratulations! This idea sounds like it will give a fair few writers a nice surprise, and feel more valued.

    Even though the choice was random, one can never go wrong with snickerdoodles.

    Hi Christy. I followed your link to the first lucky hub ... and have come back with a suggestion for you.

    With all the talk about the qualifications and professionalism of the new editors, it seems appropriate to have at least one of your editors take a look at your random winners before making the announcement and subjecting them to scrutiny by other hubbers.

    I'm not suggesting for a moment they should rewrite the winning hubs, but it would be helpful if they spotted errors like 'spoonfulls' and 'Snicerdoodles' and advised the hubber to make corrections.

    When you brand a hub Editor's Choice, you imply the hub was selected by an editor ... who presumably read it and awarded their personal seal of approval. As I recall, the EC initiative began before the announcement you had editors on board. However you do have editors now, so I hope you'll ask them to proofread your next 11 random winners.

    Having said all that, I am happy for Julia and offer her my congratulations. smile

      You've never had spoonfulls of Snicerdoodles!?!

        No. In fact I'd never heard of a Snickerdoodle either before today. Maybe one made of Snicer would be nicer.

        Although I can't imagine eating anything called a doodle!!

          Actually, the hub recipe indeed is redundant. Everyone knows if you put 2 doodles alone in a room, the next day you will find half a dozen.
