We sacrificed one of our team members to bring you the HubNuggets this week. Won't you please pay your respect to HubNugget Hank by reading and voting for your favorite?
If you're new to HubPages and don't know about HubNuggets yet, you might also want to visit Shirley Anderson's HubNugget How-To hub to get the details!
Best of luck to all the wannabes!
B.T. fabulous job on retelling this weeks adventure. What an honor it was to have met Ed, Bob and Bill.
Congrats hubnuggeteers on being nominated, good luck.
Some of my fav bards! Thanks for a fun hub, B.T. Well done! Congratulations to all the nominees!
I have been NOMINATED !!!!! WOOT !!!!
Apologies to that HP team member that had to be sacrificed (a bit harsh, but ah well).
Ok , So now I have.....
- Rented The Tux
- Ordered the Limo
- Asked the local bar girl to wear that low-cut dress I bought and hang off my arm for a few hours.
- Started writing my acceptance speech (just in case), but I'm stumbling after the phrase...'I would like to thank....'
And CONGRATS to all the other nominees, may your votes be vast and may your hub be all it can be,
Hey, Kangaroo-See, I have this fetching little number with a slit up the thigh, so would you like another gal on your arm?
I'm fairly new to Hubpages & am still trying to find my way around. I'd be really grateful if somebody could explain how Hubnuggets works, how hubs are nominated etc etc. Thanks!
Welcome to HubPages - nice to meet you!
HubNuggets is a way we, on HubPages, celebrate the best in new (to us) writers. It's a great way to highlight new hubbers and draw attention to their writing.
Every week, the members of the HubNuggets Team go through all the eligible hubs and pick out 18 top contenders - 6 in each of that week's 3 featured categories.
Then one of us creates a hub to showcase them, and everyone who visits the showcase hub (see the link above for this week's hub) gets to vote for their favorite in each category.
Any hubber who's accomplished the following (4) things is eligible for HubNuggets consideration:
-joined Hub Pages within the last three months (90 days),
-have an author score of 75 or better
-published within the last 7 weeks, on one of the featured topics,
-and that hub has a hub score of 55 or greater.
Shirley Anderson's hub will give you more information: http://hubpages.com/hub/HubNuggets-How-To
Every Friday, a new showcase hub is published by one of our team, and the link to it will be here at the top of the forums, highlighted in blue. The winners are announced the following Wednesday (the top three vote-getters in each category), and the winning hub sent out in the HubPages newsletter - which goes out to about 60,000 HubPages members.
Hope this helps!
An excellent explantion RedElf and your own showcase hubs are always fresh and entertaining. They're some of my favorites.
Dear Readers! - Visit the links at the start of this thread and have a good time as you read and vote. Thanks from all of us and this week's HubNuggets Wannabes.
There's a "How to" link at the top that Shirley Anderson has written, click on that and it will explain everything.

(The stage is set at the 49th weekly Nubnuggets ceremony and the lights come up to reveal one Samuel L Jackson, the host of tonights Sports & Recreation section)
(The crowd goes wild)
Sam: It's my f***ing honour and my great f***ing privilege to award this beautiful f***ing trophy for best hub in a Sports & F***ing Recreation stylee to a dear friend of mine. The mothaf***ing voting was wild and intense with literally tens of people turning the f*** up at the mothaf***ing polling stations. And with no further motherf***ing ado....the mothaf***ing winner is....
Sam: Mojo Jojo with his beautifully spectacular and infinately pointless mothaf***ing hub about being Irish or some s***.
(Crowd goes wild but not as wild as they did when Samuel L Jackson said "Yo". Mojo raises hand to mouth in humble shock and meagre awe)
Sam: Come on the f*** up here and get your motherf***ing award mothaf***a.
(Mojo stands and makes his way to the stage to collect his award. He embraces Sam warmly and takes to the podium)
Me: I'd like to thank the academy. The Police Academy 2 that is. Without the inspiration from that movie I dread to think where I'd be right now. I'd also like to thank my family. Not my actual family but the hit BBC sitcom of the same title. See Police Academy 2 for reasons. I'd also like to thank Hubpages, hubnuggeteers and all things Hub for that matter, like the hub of a boat, or the hub-wheels on my car. I'd also like to thank Thierry Henry for providing the inspiration upon which my beautifully intricate and mesmerising hub was built. Thank you. Not 'you', but the letter 'u'. Without 'u' we would not only miss out on so many great words and sounds but we also wouldn't know what to do with 'q'. So thank 'u'. Good night.
(Crowd stare on in amused bewilderment, with nobody wanting to point out that his hub had come 2nd)
