    This is a form of torture.........Just kidding:)

    mcimicata You really should submit your hubs for the contest 3 days ago the hub that won was his first hub.  How sweet was that.  I must warn you though it is addicting..........
    Don't forget just put "WritingContest" (no spaces) in the tags before you publish

    Good Luck and Have Fun

    Winners for day 12 of the contest! I HAZ THEM.  Wooo!!!

    • Staff Pick winner: Gordon Hamilton for his Hub on coddled eggs
    • Daily Drawing Winner: awesomeactress for a discussion of the flawed system of New Jersey bus passes

    Gordon Hamilton is our first double winner! He won a Daily Drawing a couple days back, and now he's won a staff pick! His Hub on coddled eggs is very smart- it uses all original photos, is on a niche topic that has surprisingly weak competition (and he also incorporates two keyword sets into his title to attract an even broader audience), and his writing and useful tips are excellent.  Well done!

    Congrats to today's winners, and to everyone else who entered today as well!

    Tuesday's winners are UP!

    • Staff Pick winner: Marie McKeown for her Hub on royal visits to Ireland
    • Daily Drawing Winner: Bendo13 for a fun Hub on National Licorice Day

    Marie McKeown's Hub is a really good mixture of present issues and history, and has great formatting and very interesting information. We recommend having a look at it!

    Congrats to today's winners, and props to ALL entries!

      Outstanding stuff! As I am a big fan of "Royal" trivia, Marie your hub gave me just what I was looking for. A well deserved staff pick! Congratulations.  And Bendo13, who ever thought to dedicate a day to Licorice is genius! Congrats on the daily drawing.

    Congrat to all winners!!!

    I was going to give the contest a try but I was holding off because I am not a very good typer. (I tend to have alot of typing errors)  From what I understood from the criteria your hub needed to have proper use of grammer.... Is this actually factored in when picking the winners?  I did notice there to be alot of mistakes in some.... Don't mean to sound rude or arrogant, just trying to clarify the criteria.

    1. Gordon Hamilton profile image94
      Gordon Hamiltonposted 11 years agoin reply to this

      Hi, Stressed24/7,

      When it comes to what is actually factored in to judging criteria re the contest, clearly Simone or another member of the Hub Pages staff would have to answer.

      All I would say to you is that you should absolutely consider having a go. If typing errors are your problem, have you considered what is causing them? Maybe you are just typing too fast! smile If you find difficulty with some spellings or grammar issues, are you aware that there is a spell check facility in the text capsule on Hub Pages to help you?

      You seem to have an interesting life judging by your profile, with plenty to keep you busy, interested and motivated - so go for it! After all, if you're not in it, you won't win it.

      Best of luck!

      Simone Smithposted 11 years agoin reply to this

      Spelling and grammar are just some of many factors that come into consideration.  You should enter the contest, Stressed24/7!

    You Hubbers are really starting to blossom! Really!  Entries today were beautiful- and we saw all types too, ranging from elegant and flowery to instructive, terse, and practical.

    The winners today had something in common- they both featured flowers!
    • Staff Pick winner: E. A. Wright won for his beautiful Hub on April flowers in Central Park
    • Daily Drawing Winner: viryabo won for her Hub on flowers helping the elderly


    Apparently spring is in the air!

    Definitely check out E. A. Wright's Hub.  It is EPIC.  He uses beautiful, original photos, has lots of useful advice, offers a very creative quiz and a fun poll, and even uses map capsules in satellite mode to better show off Central Park from an areal perspective!  Bravo, E. A. Wright.  Bravo.

    And by the by, Hubbers... we tend to see a surge in really Amazing Hubs on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  If you have a real masterpiece and want to give it better chances of winning, consider publishing on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, when quality sags a bit in favor of more interesting weekend plans wink

    1. K9keystrokes profile image88
      K9keystrokesposted 11 years agoin reply to this

      E.A. Wright, your flower images are really cool. I would have never thought to use the map capsules for the satellite imaging, nice. The fact that you actually marked special groups of flowers using longitude and latitude has me amazed. A really well deserved win for staff pick, Congratulations!
      viryabo, very interesting information. Reading how flowers have a positive effect on the well being of the elderly is something to applaud. Congrats on the daily drawing.
      Some really great work out there these days Hubbers. You're a pretty amazing bunch of writers to say the least!  Keep on Hubbin'!

        E. A. Wrightposted 11 years agoin reply to this

        Thanks for the kind words K9keystrokes. Doing the lat/long coordinates was a little tedious, but there was no other option. Google's maps were a little sparse on Central Park landmarks, and flowers don't get their own street addresses, unfortunately.

        1. K9keystrokes profile image88
          K9keystrokesposted 11 years agoin reply to this

          LOL! Good point about the street addresses, although I'm bet 'tedious' is a huge understatement. I think it was a really brilliant use of the map capsule...kinda jealous I didn't think of it! wink

            Well, I think there are still a lot of other opportunities out there for creating useful, detailed maps -- especially small-scale maps meant to help pedestrians, not cars.

    Hi, Everyone...

      If you got a notice that your hub is a finalist, I think there is a problem with the link.  This is the link that was sent:

    http://hubpages.com/help/so-you-think-y … ite-online

    (Note to staff:  please do not snip link because you need it for reference)

    I have clicked on this link at least twice, and read the entire page.  There is no place to vote.  This link is to the rules of the contest for writers.

    I am excited, but I don't want to pass around a link that does not work...that won't do me or anyone else in the contest any good.

    • Daily Drawing Winner: www.lookseenow for a discussion on the Rapture

    SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH
    • Staff Pick winner: akirchner for a lovely guide to growing potatoes in containers (and IzzyM wrote a great guide on how to COOK all those potatoes you would appreciate, too big_smile)
    • Daily Drawing Winner: soni2006 for a interval training (perhaps to burn off all those potatoes!)

    SUNDAY, APRIL 17TH
    • Staff Pick winner: akanga1 for his Hub on ovarian cysts (careful kids, this is not for those with weak stomachs such as myself, but has very useful info in an area where there is not a lot of helpful stuff already online)
    • Daily Drawing Winner: Sir Cumference for his quick guide to the Giza Pyramids!

    And I know this is going to be dreadfully frustrating, but I'm still waiting to hear back from some of our judges on the Week 2 Best Hub winner, so I'm going to wait to announce both Week 2 winners for now.  They'll be named tomorrow instead big_smile

    The decision on today's winner was tough- there were several finalists that were neck and neck- but in the end, sagebrush_mama's title, which is both relatively short and full of search-friendly keywords, and her formatting, which is well-organized and easy to follow, not to mention her judicious use of various capsules, won out.  Brava, sagebrush_mama!

      I can see your hub for the 23rd, but not the 24th even though it has the correct tag. I take it that was http://hubpages.com/hub/Cricket-Manure- … Fertilizer ?

      Edit: no that was written two days ago, it must have been your ants hub, and it was in for the 23rd.

    Wow.  So Mondays are really big contest days!

    First, we must disucss the Week 3 winners. Best Hub goes to Mrs. Menagerie for What are Truffles? (Not the Chocolate Kind) and People's Choice goes to akirchner for Growing Potatoes: How To Grow Potatoes In Containers With You Tube Videos. I tip my hat to you, ladies!

    And here are the winners for the past three days:

    FRIDAY, APRIL 22ND
    • Staff Pick winner: Linda Bliss for really cool dog birthday cake recipes
    • Daily Drawing Winner: anujagarwal for a Hub on hypertension causes and treatment

    SATURDAY, APRIL 23RD
    • Staff Pick winner: ripplemaker for a guide to boosting your emotional health
    • Daily Drawing Winner: John Sarkis for a Hub on philanthropy and counterintuitive-ism

    SUNDAY, APRIL 24TH
    • Staff Pick winner: Miss Lil' Atlanta on the Pembroke Welsh Corgi
    • Daily Drawing Winner: toknowinfo for a Hub on the best dental fillings

    Congrats to the winners!

    A quick note: we've noticed that a lot of really great candidates (and winners too) have titles that are a bit too long.  Try to keep your titles search-friendly by keeping them shorter than 65 characters (spaces included).  But remember, going for long-tail, search-friendly titles that include common search keywords is ideal- so it's all about striking a balance big_smile
