Every Friday we volunteers publish a Hub with 1) a fun theme and 2) articles by 18 newer Hubbers for you to read and choose for a vote. ANYONE can vote, not just HubPages members.
The 18 articles are split equally this week among these 3 topics (3 different topics each week in rotation):
1) Books and Writing; 2) Gender and Relationships; and 3) Religion and Beliefs
VOTE for your favorite in each of the 3 groups, or at least 1 in 1 group. We appreciate it.
Three Winners (HubNuggets) per topic (total of 9) will be announced and posted in the weekly HubPages Newsletter next week, arriving in your 70,000 to 80,000 member email Inboxes, receiving expanding Hub traffic. Commenting on Wannabe Hub- comments threads will open YOU up to more traffic as well, if you are a member.
Articles are called potential HubNuggets; their writers are HubNugget Wannabes. Winners and their Hubs are official HubNuggets. HubNuggets are like Chicken Nuggets, only of the tasty, written variety. A Louisiana friend described good music and writing as tasty and I believe it.
These articles will leave a GOOD TASTE in your mouth, so have a good serving of nominated HubNugget Hubs at:
HubNuggets Corps of Engineers
OUR RUNNING THEME has been Space Opera, particularly real events combined with Sci-Fi television and movies of the past and present. We also like pirates. And engineers.
Every Friday, you will see a highlighted forum thread for HubNuggets at the top of the Hubbers Hangout forum. There is no set time for this to happen, but usually well before
4:00pm to 5:00pm EST.
Sci-PI that was the rescue of the century. Glad that you can really think fast on your feet.
Congrats to all the the hubnuggeteers for the nominations. Good luck to you all.
I read all the hubs last night (lucky for us on the team we have the opportunity to sneak preview all the wannabes) Naturally I did my civic duty and voted.
voted and that is nice hub, congrats to all the nominees!
i read and voted. i have lots of fun with this hub every week. keep up the good work guys and gals
I feels to good to be shed of that platypus, so I could cast my votes.
Thanks for freeing us from that jam, Commander Sci-PI!
Just on my way to vote...can't wait to hear how we got out of this one...Oh, wait a minute...I was there, wasn't I?
Better go see what I missed
This is a fab write-up for the whole HubNuggets thing, by the way.
Col, coll, cool. Thanks for commenting about that CDR RedElf!
All of you volunteers are doing a bang-up job with your enthusiasm and dedication. That you introduce new Hubbers to the community, and the community to them, is a fantastic PR function that HP would have no other way. HP's more than lucky to have you.
Hi, I hope you don't mind a question: The topics for each week, do you decide them "on the fly" or are they announced somewhere in case someone wants to work with them? Sorry if this is a dummy question!
The topics rotate in a set order, three each week. You can look at the last several HubNuggets Hubs to see the order. DO THIS by going to this week's link (way above) and then going down a few lines to PREVIOUS EPISODE. At the end of THAT page, will be the last few weekly round-up hubs and the topics clearly marked on each.
The ONLY WAY a newer Hubber can "compete" or "enter" this contest is to do your BEST in each topic that you tackle every day and YOU CAN DO IT every day -- use new content around 500 - 800 words long or longer, but not book-length; good grammar, at least one photo or graphic that you have the legal right to use (look for Public Domain images on Wikimedia Commons, for example) and and attractive layout. can add more images, Amazon and eBay capsules, RSS feeds, tables, approriate links, etc.
Thanks and all success to you!
Thank you for the explanation, Patty! I am a bit of a lazy buffoon (whoops!), but I think maybe I'll set to work with this. I just need to find a funny angle, as I refuse to be serious about anything that I pen in here
So. I've followed your advice, and so far I've gathered the following topics as topics that will be carried on the Enterprise:
- Knowledge and Education
- Books and Writing
- Gender and Relationships
- Religion and Beliefs
- Home and Family
This buffoon here can pen a laugh or two about a couple of these for sure. But this buffoon (poor, poor silly bufffoon!) ain't sure at all what's the order so my hat and I are going to hope for the best If nothing else, the offering(s) will be funny! Yes, they will!
Thanks for the helpful information Patty... we are so blessed to have you around to guide us in this world of hubbing! God bless!
ON my way to commune with the local life forms Patty in my new hubmobile....woooh! I love this car! Hahahahah You guys always give me the best transpo!
Patty hello, and thanks. I needed the reminder on voting. Good luck to all.
I've voted. Good luck to all the HubNugget Wannabes and remember that you are already winners!
hubpages sucks! I spent hours on my hub last night only to get their little sh**y "overpromotional message". Do they not know that devhub and many other competitors ENCOURAGE promoting your business.. I am gone.
That's OK, more fun for the rest of us!
It's really not a site to just sell things.
I have to agree with that.. Ms. Patty, queen of the masterful writing skills. You never stop amazing me with the new and clever hubs you come up with. I sometimes wonder how you do so well and not tire. It seems your engery and wisdom go on and on. I'm not trying to kiss up, I really do mean every word comming from honest thoughts Ms. Patty.
I'm just at a point in my life where things are gelling. I never thought I could be a writer really -
well done - you deserve it - you certainly seem to put the hours in...cheers
I agree with Patti...I did not think I had much to say until after I turned 50. There is something reflective about this magical age for me. And that does not mean others do not, it is just my time to explore new avenues and chase down ideas long left behind in my cobwebbed infested mind!
Thanks for the wonderful place to "play" everyone!

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. The first round of changes we have been working on is the topic hierarchy. ...

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...
