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!
oh there is a reward? I must have missed the notice. Congrats to 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.
Congrats! Happy Day! Spend your cash on a nice treat for yourself!
Congratulations Julia and those cookies look so yummy!
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.
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!!

Wondering where we stand with regard to a new accolade for having more than 5 EC hubs or even a way for people to see this special distinction publicly on our hubs. Right now, we are the only ones who can see it - on our account statistics. I'm tempted to opt out at this point. Is there anyone else...

I was just looking at my stats not too long and I noticed that this was this little banner that said Editor's choice! Put my mouse over it and it said it was selected by editors and it will be promoted by Hubpages! Wow! I wasn't expecting this at all! I don't know who to thank, but thanks so much...

I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into HP this morning and found that my most recent hub has been tagged with the "Editor's Choice" icon. Yay! After all these months with no EC nods, I was starting to wonder if I'd offended the Powers That Be somehow. ("Could it be my...
