Not a great day for online earnings

It's been a rough day online for me. Firstly Bubblews closed and I lost $48 on there. Then Ciao announce that they are stopping bonus categories and Premium Fund payments for most of the categories I write in, meaning it's not worth my time and effort to review most of those things now. I am worried that this is the beginning of the end for online earnings, for me at least?

I think we're quite a long way past the beginning.

well.. after the frist $25.00 that I received from Bubblews, I never received anything else.. I think I have about a hundred dollars that I haven't received.. so I stopped ... besides I hate seeing low quality and non English posts.. not to mention the plagiarized articles

yeah, that was definitely the downside of Bubblews - barely legible posts that had lots of likes just because they were 'popular'

@euphie I don't even think they are popular in the real sense,, I sense that some people joined as a group and "played" with the system.

@jrlcentral That's true - the few ruined it for those honest people trying to earn some money

The last couple of years have been rough for me. So many sites have gone under recently.

Yep, it's been rough recently for many people. So many sites start up but then disappear taking all our earnings with them.

Put a little faith in mylot and have a good time on it. Your not going to make it happen with every site you go on but maybe mylot will be the life of the party. Who knows..

I hope so - I am certainly enjoying it so far and earning more money than I did on Bubblews.

Not a great day, but sooner or later someone will try again. I too had a rough day writing wise. I had an assignment for a content mill returned. I wrote it feeling ill. The editor rewrote it and I itch to correct the editor who had not made things much better! I think we are all wondering who to trust and what to do. Mylot I'd good, but I did like the Bubblews format. It suited my writing style. I really feel for people like you who were so near a payout. Has nobody figured it yet. It was about the time a fair few would. I doubt they ever intended to pay.

I think you're right. It's always tough when someone corrects your work, especially if they haven't improved it!

Like so many tears, lost in the rain... Things are getting tighter in the land of online revenue streams!

I've been trying to branch out a little, and am back on Swaggers and Clix. But it's not really the same, is it? :(

No, but I think I maybe just need to get used to MyLot and hopefully it will be a better home than Bubblews was. I find SwagBucks quite boring sometimes, but the vouchers are always useful.

I was guilty of not doing that much because I wanted to cash out on Bubblews but now that it's gone, I have more time to spend here.

For sure there will be there to open another door for us to earn though online sites. We are not the only one who benefits from it, of course they gain first before us. Hehe. So please do not lose hope.

That happened for me about two years ago. It seem like there aren't that many good sites left. there are a few but, you aren't going to be able to make a living off of them. Good Luck
