I have been seeing some major buzz about the 2008 Mashable Open Web Awards that is now calling for nominations. I’m not usually a huge fan of these types of competitions and awards, but I love the Mashable blog and it would generate some great chatter for HubPages if we would be picked as a finalist in our category(and especially if we won!).
Speaking of category, I wasn’t exactly sure what category to put us under since there’s really nothing listed that would cover revenue-sharing, publishing or anything even remotely similar. So, I decided to nominate us under Niche and Miscellaneous Social Networks, which I guess will work.
If you get a chance, please fill out the nomination form below and let Mashable know that you’d like to see HubPages added to the ballot. Thanks for helping us out and I’ll keep you all updated on everything as the awards process moves along. The call for nominations stops on Nov. 16 and we should know if we’re nominated sometime early next week.

HubPages rocks! Best writing site and writers forum I’ve been on!
HubPages is the BEST writing community on the Internet!!
HubPages or Heart’s Pages I love to call.
It seems to be a lab where writers are allowed to be engaged in experimentation.
HubPages has inspired my writing by providing curious, supportive readers who happen to also be critics… it’s all good!
I love HubPages. It provides me with a creative space to write about anything and everything, lots of interesting reading and a friendly community. A great site all-round!
Hubpages has wonderful writers and has truly inspired many readers!
Hubpages. The place where information, knowledge, criticizism and beautiful writings all come together in one home.
Forgive me for saying this but HubPages is much more than just writing and all these wonderful comments are only true because of that.
Thumbs-up for a beautiful and user-friendly site. And best of luck!
I love to browse the hubs – so many interesting people and stories in one great place.
I have met so many wonderful people on HubPages. There are other really wonderful writers’ sites, but none as welcoming as HubPages.
At a time when I really needed to connect with friendly souls who love to write, I found this wonderful site. How much fun and great people have I met since then!
Hub Pages have really opened new vistas to me. It has enriched and allowed me to freely voice my opinion.
These are some amazing comments – thanks for all of your very, very kind words and I’m glad that all of you have had such a great experience at HubPages. Keep up the awesome Hubbing and thanks SO much for the votes!
I do not only like Hubpages, I treasure it! I am not kidding, sometimes, when I do my gratitude list, I include Hubpages in my list.! The reason for this is that one gets to meet so many writers who write well, are from various parts of the world, and support one another. On top of that the Hubpages management is hands on, communicates with the users and cares what we think or need. You guys deserve all the success you can get!
HubPages is veeery Mashable! All Success!
I have been publishing online for over a year now and I wanted to take a moment to share with you that the information I’ve retrieved through the HubPage community has been priceless in helping me to advance my online marketing skills.
There’s always someone sharing something here that I’d yet to even discover! So I am extremely grateful to the HubPage platform for this service and for allowing such a diverse community to come together and to grow through each other’s experiences.
I don’t think that I could have come this far without so quickly without the help and support from others as many of the most valuable tips have come to me through this online marketplace.
I used to like Squidoo until I discovered Hubpages. I love hubpages!!! Good luck, you deserve the award.
I love HubPages out of sixty social websites and book marks, it is the friendliest and warmest. Everyone here is great and only the best, I’m addicted!
I love hubpages… it gives me a place to let it all out. Although I haven’t let it out very much yet I will be.
…meh. Why not!
Although I have nominated a bunch of others too. I guess they will all cancel out? Heres to HubPages!
Hubpages threatens MySpace. Why? Because Hubpages Rocks!
Just got voted! Good luck hub pages!
Hubpages is the best platform not just for blogging in particular but for publishing in general
Hey, my wife and I just voted!!! We both have enjoyed writing, sharing and reading.
I am grateful to be able to share my knowledge and experiences. I enjoy reading other peoples Hubs, too.
I think Hubpages is going to skyrocket as the word gets around.
