Summer, and the HubNuggeting is Easy!

    Summer's here!  Time to don your bikini or Speedo and hit the beach or lake front.  Make sure you pack some sunscreen and don't forget your HubNuggets!  They're the start of a perfect summer's day.

    http://tbn2.google.com/images?q=tbn:hgXe6Dvwn6P9vM:http://www.surfersvillage.com/gal/pictures/bikini2a.jpghttp://tbn2.google.com/images?q=tbn:WIluO8Oj_p4KjM:http://tarheelmania.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/speedo.gif

    Summer, and the HubNuggetting is Easy

    Remember to vote for your favourite HubNugget Wannabe before you leave.  The five Wannabes that get the highest percentage of votes make official HubNugget stardom and will be featured in the weekly newsletter.

    Oh, and you Wannabes, start promoting those hub nominations like crazy!  Blog about them (supply link), Tweet them, Digg them, Facebook, whatever.  Tell everyone you know to vote for your hub.  With HubNuggets, shameless self-promotion is perfectly acceptable and adviseable.  Just no spamming or pasting your link in comments or forums, please.

    Good luck to all of our Wannabes!!!

      Of course I want to vote.  Had to ponder my choice for a while.  I did just finally vote, Shirley.  I'm only saying it's hard to choose just one.  And, I take my voting seriously, I know how much work has gone into these hubs.

      Wow, I am thrilled to have made it .Thanks everyone for your support!

      Think of it, Shirley -- "The Sixth Lobster", "Lobster Scissorhands", "War of the Lobsters", "Indiana Jones and the Lobster of Doom", "Jurassic Lobster", "Lobster and Louise", "Forrest Lobster"...the possibilities ARE endless!  smile

          Absotively! smile smile smile

          Hey, we can even do a spinoff -- "Carnal Flounder", "Who Framed Roger Flounder", "Romancing the Flounder", "Back to the Flounder", "The Man Without a Flounder". Whaddya think?

          1. Shirley Anderson profile image71
            Shirley Andersonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            lol  I think maybe more meds or less wine.  lol

            Not that a series of fish scripts wouldn't be great (duh! you know it would be) but I think that Spongebob has cornered that market.

            Umm, great idea, though!

    Yehey! I made it!

    Thank you very much to all of you who supported the hubnuggets wannabes and of course especially to those who voted for my hub.

    Hi Shirley, so you found my little secret. He he he. It's good that I have a blog that perfectly fitted with the idea. It was simply natural to write about it in that blog. It would have been out of line if I wrote about it in my photoblog.

    Again, many thanks to everyone.

    Congratulations to my fellow hubnuggets!

    Congratulations too to all the wannabes!

    All the best!

    Congrats, Jill!  Actually, I can't take credit for finding your blog.  Hup let the HubNuggets team know about it, he found you out. smile

    Kmachey, I'm glad you asked!  All your questions should be answered here:  HubNuggets How-To, Q & A

    If you still aren't clear about something, just let us know.
