    I see you've left the big roundup and headed into greener pastures. It's a good thing, too. I was running out of old west colloquialisms! Great job, Patty. And good luck to all the wannabes!

    Congrats to all the hubnuggeteers on some great writing and to the 'picking team' for a job well done. Once again the voting was tough as the choices offered were really great.

    Zsuzsy, it's so lovely to see you at the polls so faithfully every week.  What a loyal newbie supporter!  smile

    I also have cast my vote for the week.

    Wonder which Wannabe is going to do the most promoting of their hub to drive up votes?  Hmmmm.

    I am thrilled to have my hub selected for the HubNugget Wannabe competition!!  Thanks to everyone who selected me!

    This is a great way to network with fellow writers, and I really appreciate the extra exposure!  I'm new to HubPages - well, I guess all of the nominees would be - and I appreciate all the traffic I can get!

    Thanks again, everyone!

      Hmmmn I presume you are correct, but I hope we hubnuggets wannabes past and present we'll never like the greyhounds I posted in my newest hub... selected and culled again in the voting process then forsaken at the end... I'm not really happy with my profile score now of 92 I'm stuck with this score for two days already, the promotional prize seemed to be not working for me, i'm not getting good number of traffic for the past few days, and I'm getting lonely already and disappointed... especially seeing one from my batch a HubNugget like me getting all the attention and promotions, i love her though but I can't help myself getting jealous... But its okay with me, maybe my hubs are not that good enough and big improvements and makeovers should be done to make it even more competitive... it was an irony i'm getting good profile score when i was not part of the hubnugget wannabe but it tumbled down from 95-96 to just 92 now...

        Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        Please don't despair, General.  It's perfectly normal for traffic and hub scores to ebb and flow.  It happens that way for all of us.

        If you keep writing hubs and mingling, it will continue to climb (and dip).  The passing of time helps, too.  The longer you're here and active, the more stable your score will become.  Still, it and your traffic will always wax and wane.

        Your hub was of quality good enough to be chosen from more than 2,000 hubs.  No worries, you talent shines.

          Hehehe that was a moving post there thanks for clearing the cobwebs off my head and for the great info too...
          All of a sudden my profile score reach 96 again, hmm I wonder I why...
          I just realized getting a profile/author high score is the most important for me here, I wish I could reach 100, hehehe that is my ultimate dream here...

      Good luck, Kent!  Don't forget to promote your hub like CRAZY!  No spamming or leaving links in comments or forum threads, though please.

    How do you suggest a hubber for hubnuggest?

    1. Shirley Anderson profile image82
      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Easy, Sandra.  You just email either ProCW, Patty Inglish, B.T. Evilpants or myself and make your suggestion.  We always look at nominations but we can't promise or guarantee that they'll be chosen.  They have to fit the criteria.

      Feel free to suggest away.

        sandra rinckposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        Awesome, do I pick just one hub or the whole profile?  I do have someone in mind.  big_smile

        1. Shirley Anderson profile image82
          Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

          Sending the hub link is best, however, it does have to have been published in the previous seven days of the HubNuggets week (Wed.) Our report is listed by hub title and these days, contain 2,500 - 2,800 hubs.

          Hope that helps.

            OOps, I just sent you a message about 20 minutes ago.  I just sent the whole profile because I wasn't sure... I will then keep a better eye out. big_smile  Thanks Shirley.

    Good luck Kent.  Just being nominated is an incredible achievement!

  14. Shirley Anderson profile image82
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Well General, it took me several months at least to hit 100; a little longer still to spend some time staying there.  My score still dips down as low as 96 sometimes.  That's okay because I know it's going up again.

    Emi's right, you'll get there, too.  smile

  15. Shirley Anderson profile image82
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Okay, what happened to the message I typed on the bottom of the previous post?  Are we having technical issues again, maybe?

    I'm going over to read the hubnugget hubs now. Getting a cup of tea, reading, and then voting. Having been a hubnugget nominee when I first started (2 months ago), I remember the thrill. I want to do my part to keep the newer newbies hubbing. Hoping some of this makes sense. I'm off...see you in the polls!

      GeneralHowitzerposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Cool hehehe, im in despair for the past few days hehehe, and i think my tantrums was not on the right place on the right time, yeah as a former hubnugget wannabe and hubnugget, I think it is our duty to support wannabes no matter what... you've visited my hub before hehehe and I really appreciate you've done that.now its our time to pay our dues to hubnuggets team by going out and voting and even support these neophyte authors.

      @kent >>> you have a blazing start hehehe keep it up hehehe my score just hit 97 hehehe I hope I can raise it even further. goodluck...

    Kent Merrittposted 8 years ago

    Thanks, Shirley and dohn121 for the encouragement!

    The highest my Hub score has been is only 90.  I assume this is because I've only written 8 hubs, though.  But, I'm with GeneralHowitzer - I'm shooting for 100, or at least a 97 to 99!

    I've also noticed that keyword searches return results from hubbers with higher scores, correct?

    Good luck to all HubNugget Wannabes! You should put up the badge made by Cam Anjou in your hub. Here is the link:

    HP staff, I'm assuming here that this badge is for all Wannabes to use, right?

    PS. How about a badge for being a finalist? smile

    General, if it makes you happy, my score has dropped, too sad
    I was at 96-97 last weeks, now am at 92. smile

      GeneralHowitzerposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hehehe yeah it really makes me happy... lol... of course not...

      Sorry mommyfreelancer I got jealous with you, hehehe... my score was stucked at 92 for two straight days few days ago and it triggers despair on my part, but thats the way it works here hehehe... hayz smile

  22. DoodleLyn profile image79
    DoodleLynposted 8 years ago

    I'm not sure it has anything to do with it, but my score picks up for a couple of days when I publish a hub. If I don't publish for a few days, it drops down again.

    1. GeneralHowitzer profile image62
      GeneralHowitzerposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Thats good, yeah posting new hubs (quality not substandard) will trigger (most of the time) your score hehehe, i did that few days ago my score of 92 soared to as high as 97 when I posted 3 hubs...

  23. DoodleLyn profile image79
    DoodleLynposted 8 years ago

    Yeah, that happened to me, also. Guess we just have to keep writing! lol.

    Ok, I feel really bad.  I haven't been posting or on the forums much in the last couple days.  Just busy checking out all the hubs from my fans.  Phew, time consuming!  But very educational.

    mommyfreelancer, that badge, can we use it on our blogs too do you know?  It's cool

      You can use it anywhere you like, Cam donated it for HubNuggets use.  It would be nice if you gave her attribution somehow, if possible.
