HubPages loves to win awards, but first we have to get nominated!

    Mashable, the top web 2.0 blog on the Web, has just officially opened up the call for nominations for their 2008 Open Web Awards. Since HubPages is like, the awesome of the awesome, I figured that I would try to get HubPages listed as a potential award winner.

    If you would like to help the cause by placing a nomination vote(that would be awesome!), then all you need to do is follow the link below to our blog, enter in your email address and then click the submit button. Thanks SO much for your vote and I'll keep you all updated on whether or not we get in.

    Also, be sure to let us know if you voted so that I can give a proper 'YOU ROCK!' or 'YOU ARE FREAKIN AWESOME!' post in reply.

    Hubpages is a social networking site?? I thought that was what Facebook, Friendster and MySpace were??

    :confused:

      Well, there is a category specific for the the mainstream social networking sites like MySpace, etc. and like I said, there's really no category for what we really are....so I went with the niche social networking site.

      Plus, like Misha said, we definitely have social networking features(profiles, fans, forums, etc.), so we're actually not that far off.

      Thanks for the votes!

    Isa, I believe strictly speaking any online forum is social networking smile

      I disagree http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_networking

      But its not important, obviously, I just would have thought there would be a category for sites like Hubpages/Squidoo/Associated Content/etc. Seems like the sites are high enough ranked and have enough members to deserve their own.

        I know that we aren't listed, but I definitely think that we align with the definition given:

        A social network service focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most social network services are web based and provide a variety of ways for users to interact, such as e-mail and instant messaging services.

        I agree with you though, they should have just had a revenue-sharing or self-publishing category. That would have cleared all of this up. smile

          I hate to point out that you don't exactly conform to the last part of your quote, but I'm not complaining, as I am quite glad that you don't. Many writers wouldnt be here if HP was a MySpace type thing, with instant messaging, a private messaging system, flirt buttons, winks, and however else people communicate these days.

          Maybe someone can suggest a new category to Mashable for next year. Im sure HP would win.

    well, darn. I was almost done. when I clicked the link in the confirmation email, I'm getting the "IE cannot display webpage" error.  Tried to copy & paste the link - same thing. Maybe my work computer is blocking the site? Anyone else have this prob?


    Ok - working now! I'm getting the "you have already nominated in this category" message. Who knows...seems like I'm always having some kind of 'puter gremlins!

      I did at first and chalked it up to traffic.  Went back again and clicked on the link a half hour later and got a "you've already voted."

      Odd, huh?

    Thanks, Spryte - I edited by previous post before I saw your reply. I didn't think about traffic - maybe that was it.

    Hubpages is a social networking site, a writers blogger site, a money generating site, and a phenominon rolled into one burrito.. what's confusing? Oh I get it, that everyone else isn't doing it... well they suck we don't smile HP and SQ seem to be the only SNS that realize you can do more with a web 2.0 platform than just write...

    I'm noticing ALOT of hubbers are voting for hubpages (its blasting all over my Twitter page... every other twit is nominating hubpages smile hehe..
