It's that time again folks! It's Friday and the HubNuggets Team has given us all one more reason to say "T.G.I.F." - we've harvested a brand new crop of HubNugget Wannabes for your reading pleasure!
Every week, the HubNuggets Team reads thousands of hubs searching out great ones, the well-written, interesting, fact-filled, thoughtful, thought-provoking, uplifting, humorous, funny, or totally unique hubs, and gathering up the cream of the crop (for that week) into a round-up hub - kinda of like the HubMob round-up that Rose Mary does every week.
Then we all get to read these great hubs (also known as "HubNugget Wannabes"), and vote for our favorites in each of the selected categories.
Any hubber who's accomplished the following (4) things is eligible to be chosen as a HubNuggets Wannabe:
* joined Hub Pages within the last three months (90 days),
* have an author score of 75 or better
* published a hub within the last 7 weeks, on one of the featured topics,
* and that hub has a hub score of 55 or greater
The top vote-collectors in each category then win the coveted designation "HubNugget", and their hub is included in the Hub Pages Newsletter, which goes out to over 60,000 readers.
As well, they come to the attention of more readers, gather more page views, and become known to a wider reading audience.
As well, the HubNuggets Team gets to have a bit of fun with the theme of the round-up hub. This week our intrepid team is venturing into the realms of the film noir detectives of the '40s...
*in my best Humphry Bogart voice*, "So, here's the link you mugs - now, get over there, see, and get reading!"

These Nuggets are fresher than tomorrow morning's news! Grab a hot cuppa joe and have a look-see.

Yes Remember to check the Hub Nuggets, I got a lot of traffic to one of my hubs once thanks to the Nice people at Hub Nugget HQ's nominating me, think I came 3rd or joint 4th
The HubNugget picks are awesome this week, and the HubNuggets Hub itself is hilarious to boot!
the hubnuggets hub is funny and well presented --- and the nominees are good!
You must remember this a hub is just a hub..
A sigh is just a sigh !
The world will always welcome hubbers as time goes by...
Of all the forum threads in all of Hub Pages, I had to drop into this one...
Just popped in and will have to vote tomorrow. I'm in charge of coordinating my friends daughters wedding... after many weeks of total busy-ness, today is finally the BIG day, have been at it since yesterday at dawn... but just walked by the computer and couldn't resist, needed to rest my 'great gams' for a mo' and drink my cuppa joe...
Awesome hub Red,
Congrats to all the hubnuggeteers and good luck... don't forget to promote your hub to all---family, friends, next door neighbors, the kissin' cousins, including Tom, Dick and
Harry, they can all vote for your hub.
Have a fabulous day everyone
Thanks for the votes, everyone.
As of this moment we have 44 votes in the leading, Books and Writingcategory.
So much fun!
Have a good time at the wedding, Zsuzsy Bee - it's sure to be beautiful.
Votes are increasing and it's a toss-up for the winners. There's still plenty of time, so thanks for reading. We appreciate every vote and comment.
That's good news, Patty!
I chipped my way out of the joint with a butter knife, just so's I could get over there and vote.
I hear that detective Anderson dame is asking questions all over town. Think I could hole up in your basement for a while?
(Secret entry, not for B.T.'s eyes)
Patty, here is your chance of getting the basement repainted, the new floor put in annnnd the new shelves mounted on the walls... B.T. is desperate enough for a safe 'hidy-hole' he'll do all those 'never-have-time-to-get-to' odd jobs. ...there is a sinister sounding "hahahaha" in the air.
Wow, what a cast of characters...the story just gets more interesting.
I voted for my choice in the Hub Nuggets, hope all of the rest of the community would too!
Good for you dobson, and everyone who's voted so far! We've had over 200 votes in the three topics so far! Excellent!
Glad to see you made it out in time to vote, B.T. Maybe we can talk the judge into a hanging sentence (ACK!) I mean, a SUSPENDED sentence (I know, bad pun), for community service or home renovation service, or something...
We had it all...
Just like Bogey and Bacall...
great hub Red! Voted, voted and voted
did I mention I voted? LOL can hardly wait for the next batch - this just keeps getting better and better...
Hey There! I'm a fairly new Hubber, so I was surprised and ecstatic to be notified that one of my hubs was nominated for the HubNuggets contest! I hope it's not a violation to mention that! I only recently (4-6 weeks ago) decided to avidly pursue my passion for creative writing, after failing miserably at finding a regular, full-time job. I've been more successful and happy as a writer for the past month or so than I was as a job-seeker for the past 2 years! Really looking forward to posting more hubs!
Congrats to everyone who was nominated, and to our fabulous winners!
