Announcing the 2013 Hubbie Award Winners!

Screen shot 2013-09-11 at 10.01.48 AMHubPages is excited to announce or annual Hubbie Award Winners!

How do the Hubbies work? Last month we invited the community to vote for their favorite Hubs and Hubbers of the year. Each Hubber is eligible to win one Hubber-based award and one Hub-based award. Two weeks after opening the polls, we closed them and tallied the votes.  Winners will be given a Hubbie Accolade and be sent a HubPages t-shirt!

And without further ado…

HubPages Superlatives

Top Hubs

Congratulations to this year’s Hubbie winners!  It was a really close race with so many amazing Hubbers and Hubs to choose from.  Thanks to all those that voted!  Well done, everyone!
If you are wondering, I made the executive decision to remove the “Most Likely to be Banned from the Forums” category.  Frankly, it’s just not nice, and it’s an Edmondson family rule to be kind.  🙂

  1. I’m honored with my Most Likely To Become An Employee award. Sadly, all HubPages ever seems to be looking for is software developers, whereas my skills are more in the customer service/experience realm. If they had a job for me, and it allowed me to be able to afford to live in San Francisco, I’d totally pack up and move back in a heartbeat.

  2. I’m so honored to win Best HubPage Poet! Thank you, all who were responsible for that. I’m also delighted to see several of my own nominees for other honors have won those honors! What a lovely contest, in which peers get to vote! Thank you!

  3. It’s so nice to know that so many people like nature and birds, and I am so pleased that my photos are being enjoyed. Thanks to everyone that voted, as I never would have received this award without you.

  4. For the second year in a row, I have been honored by my fellow HubPages writers for having published the Most Interesting Hub. For this, I am truly grateful.

    I am especially pleased with receiving this year’s Hubbie Award for Poetry Forms. My article has caused people who had never written poetry to begin writing micropoetry. It has also caused established poets to write poetry in forms which were new to them.

    My hope is that HubPages will now give greater recognition to my fellow poets and their work.

  5. This comes as a nice surprise. My thanks to all of you here at Hubpages who have spent time reading my flights of imagination and for the support you have offered. Mike Friedman aka mckbirdbks

  6. What a surprise! Thanks to all my fellow hubbers who voted for me. I never even imagined I would ever win any of these awards. This is truly an honor coming from such great people and so many amazing writers!

  7. Congratulations to all here and my wonderful friends, Bill, Nellieanna,Joe aka Hawaiian Odysseus, Mary (till), drbj, teaches (I voted for you all) and to all fellow hubbers here!!! It is like the People’s Choice Awards. I am so humbled, for I know there are so many, so deserving. Thank you to all those who voted for me, for I started writing on HP to spread a message of love and hope to all who read by telling of my true life experiences. God bless you all. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

  8. I’m thrilled that I know so many of these winners and count so many of them among my friends. Congrats to all!

  9. I appreciate your votes! Thank you!
    How exciting to have a HubPages Three-peat and win a hubbie all three years! Maybe I’ll shoot for a Four-peat! 🙂

  10. I am humbled by my award as best all-around hubber…thanks so very much to all who voted for me, and congratulations to the other winners.

  11. Congratulations to EVERY writer here on HubPages! You’re ALL winners in my book, and no amount of awards recognition could ever steal your thunder.

    I never had the honor of meeting Mr. Aesop, but his fables delighted and pacified me as a child and still bring me comfort today now that I’m a card-carrying Baby Boomer and failed Peter Pan.

    Remember that tortoise? He’s still plodding along, just like all of us here on HubPages. What makes him a winner–what makes ALL OF US winners–is that even though a passing race might be over, even though the votes for another awards special have been counted, we’re all still emulating that tortoise. We all just keep on keeping on.

    THAT, my friends, is the only measure of what a winner is all about.

    In the wake of a mass exodus of our fellow writers from HubPages, we who remain owe it to ourselves as well as to each other the daily acknowledgment of at least one writer peer…five would be even better…ten would be awesome. Because, when you really stop and think about it, we’re all on the same marathon walk. Stopping every now and then to encourage and cheer our neighbor(s)…building, strengthening, and maintaining that durable umbilical lifeline with each other…now THAT’S the catalyst for a nuclear reaction of immense proportions.

    An A-bomb! A for Aloha!

  12. I am honored and humbled to receive the Teacher award for 2013. Two years in a row is a great honor. I appreciate all my fellow hubbers and the community for the votes. I know there are other writers out there who deserve the recognition as well (perhaps more than I). Congratulations to all those who won in the 2013 HubPages Hubbie Awards!

  13. Best Avatar! Wouldn’t the Queen be proud? I know I am. To be recognized by your peers, for any category, is no small feat! Thank you so much. I am truly honored to be in the same company as the great writers and photographers!
    I’m especially happy to see so many of the hubbers I voted for have won, its great to be in such good company. Thank you hub staff for all the behind the scenes work you do and thank you hub writers for being the best community ever.
