I don't believe it, look what I have found ( fabricated ) . A news article that is stating that Bubblews is up for sale! I do wonder, if and when Bubblews ever goes on the market how much it would go for!

I'd buy it and pay for it in Bubble-money. That should work just fine.

You got a chuckle out of me! We could all buy it and tell them "Please be patient. We're looking into paying you soon."

a good buyer could save Bubblews - a bad one will just take the domain name. The worry here is Arvind talking of his failed business and the sale is offered on his own auction site - who could trust that?

@JamesHxstatic - Yes, it is a spoof, but a good ones. Besides, the date on it is from two years ago. Oh, well. It would not surprise me if they did sell it ... or let it fade away when their domain name needs to be renewed in April, 2016.

Haha, nice XD It almost look real. If this was actually true, I'd actually have hope in Bubblews again. New management doesn't seem so bad at this point.

If bought by high integrity management, the site could survive. Many people have enjoyed Bubblews. But they owe so much at this point, and their record keeping is so poor (that's my guess), no buyer would know exactly what they're getting into.

Buy Bubblews and you buy their debt. I actually got paid by one shady writing site about ten years ago after the name was bought by someone new (and legit, I assume). I think it was called "Bright Idea." I wrote an email to the new owners and was paid (it was only something like $100) within a month.

A dodgy site like Seekyt went for 27k. It was sold to a rather unsavoury character who is trying to out Dixit the Bubble. Right now it has 169k hits so looks like something.

Never heard of it. Is it a similar "writing site"?

Well it is hard to guess, but it would be more interesting to see who the buyer would be?

You should have given us the link of that newspaper for us to check either it is true or not.

It's not true. In Aug of 2013 it was a lucrative site, or at least it was for the majority of us.

@dodoazo There's no way to tell who they're paying. It seems random. And rare.
