The HubPages Share and Share a Like contest is HubPages’ first ever social contest in which we encourage you to write online articles that your social media friends are likely to read, enjoy, and share. In this contest, we’ve opened up most of the voting to the community and moved it to our Facebook page, making you just as much a judge as you are a participant! You can write about whatever you like- just make sure to add the “Contest” tag before publishing for your entry to count.

In addition to having the chance to win $50 each day with our classic Daily Drawing prize, entries may be selected (based on our judging criteria) to be showcased on our Facebook page for the Fan Faves round (from Tuesday to Friday following each contest week), in which any visitor may vote for their favorite Hub. Any of these Hubs that gets more than 25 votes wins an instant $25.

The two Hubs with the most Fan Fave votes will move on to a Tug of War round (from Friday to Monday) of final voting, with the winner coming away with $100 and the runner up winning $50. The Tug of War winners from each week will enter a final round of voting on August 9th and the Hub with the most votes wins our Grand Prize of $500.
