HubNuggets - Now Biggie Sized!

    Hey HubNuggeteers!  That HubNuggets Overload last week was a big hit!  You liked it so much, that we've decided to biggie size your HubNugget Wannabe list.  There's lots of HubNuggety goodness for you to enjoy!

    Skip on over and peruse the menu to select your favourite hub and then be sure to vote.

    HubNuggets Biggie Sized

    If you're one of the Wannabes, you're going to want to promote the fact like CRAZY!!

    That's what Kelsey Tallis did last week and she got an absolute TON of votes!  Kelsey posted a link to the HubNuggets hub on a message board and the readers poured in to vote.

    Frieda Babbley had similar results the week that one of her hubs made the Wannabe list.  Frieda posted a brief description of what was happening and posted a link to the HubNuggets hub URL.

    You don't have to be a guru, you just have to spread the word and people will follow you back to the polls.

    Good luck to all the Wannabes!

    Man, this is one astounding group of Nugget Wanabees we have this week. I'm, well, astounded! Gravy World must go by the wayside as I continue to read and re-read these entertaining and provocative Hubs.

      Of course she does. But the jury is stil out as to whether or not I can be trusted around all this gravy!

      Yay, you love the HubNugget Wannabes, you really, really love them!

      We do seem to be getting more and more high quality writers to add to the already talented newbie group. 

      Is it me, or does HubPages rock?

    Keep up the good work, Nanny!

    Sharrie, I hope you're running an election campaign, getting everyone and their brother to vote for you!  They don't have to be members of HP to vote.  We gotta share that beautiful butt with the world!

    Hey, I just found this email in my spam box, guess I am a lucky hubnugget wannabe?  Cool beans, for sure.  Thank you to whomever nominated me..  Guess I shall have to check it out further?

    Thanks again for the consideration..

    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Ahh, Janetta, I thought you had that HubNugget glow. smile  Enjoy and good luck in the contest!

    Fishin', I'm glad that you found the email.  The hubs were chosen from a report featuring 1900 new hubs by new hubbers this week.  Does that tell you anything about the caliber of your (and all the Wannabes) work?  smile  Good luck to you.

    Don't forget, HubNugget Wannabes, anyone can participate in the HubNuggets voting, it is not restricted to HubPages members.  Spread the word and encourage people to vote.

    I want to thank everyone that voted for my hub smile I've only been on Hubpages for 2 weeks, and to be nominated for my first hub, I am honored! I've only recently begun writing, even though my first novel was started in 1975 and will be published soon. Actually, I'd only wrote the first 30 pages in '75 and the remaining 670 were written in 72 days. Again, thanks so much for nominating me.

    This is a wonderful thing to have happened at HP. New writers being encouraged which is really awesome. During Last week's Competition my Hub,The Other side of subprime Loans was voted the 2nd best http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Other-Side- … rime-Loans   
    and trust me the feeling being right up there cannot be expressed in words. HP is doing a great job in motivating and encouraging writers to give their best.

    May I offer my humble thanks to those that voted for my hub. I've thought of myself as a novice writer at best, and to be nominated was quite a shock. Due to circumstances out of my control, I've found myself with more time to write and hopefully can offer the readers something of interest. Again, thanks so much. I really do appreciate the support many of you have shown me!
