Did you switch?

I came here from Bubblews and I was wondering how many other people switched to mylot from bubblews. I decided to check out this site because I really didn't enjoy writing on bubblews anymore because I didn't get a whole ton of feedback on my posts. In my opinion it is because a lot of people had stopped visiting and writing on the site as much as they used to. Which I can totally understand because I don't write or visit there very much at all. I found out about this site from @sishy7 when I was reading one of her posts on there today. Did a lot of you come from Bubblews? What were your reasons for switching?

I started out here in October of 2006. I led the foray from here to Bubblews when myLot stopped the earning program in May 2013, and posted there until last year when they started acting unacceptably to many users. I had still been posting here occasionally and started telling people when intimations surfaced a few months ago that the earnings program was being revamped here.

@LovingBaking Originally I was a member of mylot but right before they stopped paying I went over to Bubblews. I don't think I was there for even a year. I got paid though, except for the last cashout. Then, I heard the other day that mylot was paying again so I came back here.

Let me add a part that nobody's talked about.....money. With the unemployment rate higher than what they want you to think, many people are turning to the internet. And one of the more popular things is writing. It won't pay like a regular job, but it does bring in the pocket-change, and that add's up. That pocket change might mean if somebody has supper one night or not. People are finding out what all CAN be done online. And they are flocking in droves to these sites. For some sites, it's overwhelming, like Bubblews. Too many - too fast. Some sites just can't keep up, once word gets out. It was a pay rate issue with me, as to why I left. Found another site, well... folks from Bubbles went over there... wasn't long till they had to change some things. I hope MyLot can handle it!

Traffic has tanked.. and the earning is way to low.. payout is way too high. Its too much work for too little and who knows at the end of it all if they would really pay.I have made some and lost quite a bit there.. now I am cautious.

I didn't exactly "switch" from Bubblews. I'm still using Bubblews even though I don't know if they still pay. I'm only on Bubblews because I don't want to abandon all the memories I made on there (my posts!). I already prefer myLot more than Bubblews.

I was on myLot two years ago and then they stopped paying so I left. I started on Triond and then the money went way down, and then to Bubblews, and as you know the money has gone way down over there too. I'll still hang out at Bubblews but I'm going to give MyLot another go.

@LovingBaking, I heard about Bublews few months ago. When I check its terms and conditions and the way it works does not impress me. Revenue sharing model with the contributors was not allow me to stay with it.

Actually, a lot of us started on here first. After myLot stopped paying back in 2013, a lot of us migrated over to Bubblews...including me. Since their last update though, I just can't seem to get motivated on there anymore...even more so after myLot brought the earnings back...a lot of us returned after that.

A lot of people have been saying that. Which has me believe that people care about earning s'more Tha having fun on here. Because they all left after the earning stopped and came back when they started the earnings again

Well, from what I understand a lot of people left because this site had become a place for spam. I couldn't tell though. I had been on dial-up so the pages didn't fully load. That's mainly why I had left. What was the point in staying if I couldn't read the responses or comments? A lot of us old members would have been more than willing to stick around (without pay) had myLot stuck to using the previous layout.

@LovingBaking I wasn't a member of this site in the past, but my guess is that even those who don't care about the money would eventually give up if most of their friends left as there would be no interaction left to keep the site interesting.

Well I actually came here first then jumped to Bubblews when this site stopped paying. Now I'm back here because well you know how Bubblews is nowadays. This is definitely a different site than Bubblews. I like it better here because you don't need to use this as an online diary, it's more of a discussion board and for me it's more fun.

@LovingBaking there used to be lots of interaction there until the problem with payments started.

I stopped writing at Bubblews after they announced that they wouldn't be honouring all our redemptions. When I got frustrated with the failure of other sites I tried, I went back briefly, hoping I could still enjoy the interaction there, but most of my friends were gone and I was earning nothing, so I didn't stick around for very long.
