    Congrats to the winners!

    I guess we can take off the writingcontest Tag now? Since the hub is done with the contest, the tag is not relevant anymore and could be considered misleading, right?

      I thought the contest was over the 29th that's what it says in the contest rules Did i miss something/?????

        The contest is still on. I am talking about the individual hubs for a specific day. Once that day is passed...that hub is no longer in the running for a contest prize is my understanding.

    I would do it but it's hard enough as it is to come up with one hub a week. When would you find the time in a day to do 5 hubs in one day let alone 5 a day for 30 days? Some of us have to work.

    Can someone give us some idea as to how many hubs are submitted for the contest each weekday (versus weekend)?  Is it thousands of hubs? Hundreds? or Dozens?   I just want to get an idea of the chance of winning the daily drawing.  Contest usually have stats like that.

      If you go to the first post of this thread, there's a link to all contest entries - they are listed by day so you can do a manual count.

      there were just over 100 for April 24....
      There are currently 104 for April 25 - with two hours to go.

      I note that only 5 entries can be accepted - so you currently have about 1 in 20 chances of winning $50 if you write 5 hubs a day.

    Congrats to all the recent winners. I hope that hubbers continue to write brilliant hubs after the competition when there's no longer $50 on the line!

    Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who has participated in the contest. Everyone now has more hubs than at the beginning of the month and that has to be a good thing.

    The winners for Day 27 are chosen and ready to be presented!

    • Staff Pick winner: SamboRambo for his Hub on how to build a lathe
    • Daily Drawing Winner: Mr Knowitall for his explanation of a chronograph

    Well done, both!  Special props to SamboRambo for the fantastic customized images and well-researched keywords.  He also did a great job of writing a search-friendly title that is not too long, but is still illustrative and specific.

    There is only one day left in the contest, so make sure your final entries are posted before noon (PT) tomorrow!  Good luck on the final day of the contest big_smile

    Thank you! I feel honored. That hub represents some research as you say, a lot of trial runs, and a lot of work. I started it early in the month, and worked it between other hubs.

    Congratulations to winners. I have devoted my last hub, which is the 60th hub) to God who has given me such strength and power to write so many hubs for this contest. The hub is about to awaken kundalini, your inner self.

        Thank you Simone I'm not going anywhere and I love to write  I just meant the contest  kind of gets you in touch with everybody and you can check out their writing etc.  I didn't really write articles that were "not over published' and just figured maybe the drawing I am extremely competitive and ok I'll say it obsessed with rankings Do I want to make money? Of course but that will come if I stay focused and keep writing from my gut and heart. Oh yeah and if people would stop stealing my hubs and #1 spot. (sorry to ramble and I took care of it thanks to the forum) You are a great help and inspiration  Thank you and keep up the good work.  Talk to ya soon

    I echo the congratulations to the winners and HP for running such a fun contest.  I learnt a lot while doing it - mainly how to cope with the disappointment of not winning a single one.
    I feel this experience will stand me in great stead as I continue to write and be ignored by the general public.
    This surely ranks alongside my other achievements - fourth place HubNugget, second from last in the school cross country and failing to win the lottery.
