Another Bubblews refugee on board

Japan
January 22, 2016 9:44pm CST
Hi all. I was hoping to find some of my Bubblews friends here. I joined about fifteen minutes ago and already have found three or four! I hope to find more of you in the coming days. I had been very busy in the "real world" and had not been wroting when old B shut down; in fact, I only knew about it because I am on a Facebook page for the Harlow-McGaw group. I was disappointed because I enjoyed my interactions there. I have not been writing at all recently, but am finding that I really miss it! I think I need a place where I can post my random thoughts and writings. Maybe this is it. Anyway, if you recognize me (I was pentatonicscale on the B-site) please stop by and say howdy! And tell me how this site works, too. Looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar names and faces!

There are a vast number of ex Bubblews members here. Many of them were Mylot members first who migrated to Bubblews and returned after the site began to collapse. Naturally there are also many members who began here after the demise, mainly due to the presence of many known friends.

I remember your username. Not the walking caveman avatar, though! I am really surprised that Mylot did not ring any bells in my mind as having been mentioned. Guess I was just dense.

@petatonicsca I used my signature quill for most of the time at Bubblews, apart from using others for special occasions.

I remember your avatar and that I had commented on a couple of your articles on bubblews, you also commented on a couple of mine. Glad you found Mylot, I think you will enjoy it here. It is more of a discussion platform rather than the style used by bubblews. If you enjoy conversation like what you might do on facebook than you'll love it here. Hope you have a ton of fun.

Pleeze don't ask me to remember what I wrote @petatonicsca I have never been overly serious about what I wrote, I was just trying to have fun and if I'd known what Mylot was back then I probably would have left much sooner.

@rebelann Yeah, I remember that I wrote a lot about Japanese culture, but that's about all I remember!

Welcome to the castaway island for bubble drifters. I drifted here before the bubble popped, but I haven't really been active all that much. Have fun!

Hello I was also on Bubblews and I hated what they did! I was a member here way before Bubblews even existed. Although I do miss the old My Lot I was so happy to see it back up and running again! It is so good to be home again! I missed all my friends from the old My Lt and have seen a lot here again! This is an awesome site and I hope it stays around for a long time!

I never heard about it so was happy to find it on a list at Writedge and discover it still exists. Sounds like a lot of the old writing sites have taken a hit.

Thanks! I love your profile kitty, by the way-- I almost used mine but then realized I need to use my old pic so others can identify me from other sites. I have two kitties.

Nice to see you as I remember you from that ol' B place - I was SmilePie over there. Ohisashiburi desu! You will find many who have migrated here - and some of us were actually originally here before B even existed. Just keep playing around here and I'm sure you will get the hang of this place in no time!

I arrived here shortly after Bubblews finally closed its figurative doors. I don't write as much here as I did on Bubblews, but I interact significantly more. The way the comment threads are set up carrying on "conversations" within a thread is quite simple and straight forward and the interaction seems to keep my bank slowly filling up!

I was on Bubblews but I was not much active there. I did not really like the site. I am here on mylot since 2007 and I always enjoy spending my time here and sharing my thoughts with fellow mylotters. Welcome to mylot.

Bubblews was my introduction to online writing. If it weren't for Bubblews, I wouldn't have found myLot. I'm enjoying it here!

Welcome to myLot! You'll run into quite a few fellow ex-bubblers here. I was there for a few months, never recieved anything I earned so I left months before they shut down. To me, myLot is much more reliable and stable than Bubblews was.
