Hi, everyone. My name is Ali, and I am new, here. I'm not so new to online writing, as many people who may remember me from such sites as Bubblews, Persona Paper, Yahoo (all the way back to when it was Associated Content!) and even Bukisa can vouch. I'd love to get in touch with my friends from those places, so please let me know to connect with you. I love to write, but I am also an artist, and I may post about that from time to time. The illustration on this post is one of my pieces. I'm looking forward to getting into this new venture, and I hope to make lots of new friends as well as finding the old ones!

I was on all those places plus some extra not mentioned. I do remember you from bubblews and probably pp, but I wasn't on yahoo too much once it changed and not that often before that. I was also on squidoo, ehow, and videojugpages. I still have an account on hubpages and several articles there and I joined blogjob this fall although I don't have time to be everywhere, so that's collecting dust currently.

@pgiblett I saw you say that a day or so ago elsewhere. I got in before bubblews shut down with Kyla. She's still there, I believe and doesn't seem interested in checking this place out too.

I remember you from Bubblews. You knew me as Horse there. I got my start at Epinions. This is a nice site. It's supportive and the Administrators are honest. Here, getting involved in active discussions, whether your own or someone else's, is the way to go.

@AliCanary I think I signed up there, but just never got going. Were a lot of Bubblews refugees there? There are many here.

@TheHorse Oh yes, quite a few, although a lot of people signed up and did not stick around because the pay was less. However, after Bubbs changed to an unknown pay rate, we actually made MORE, it's just that people didn't realize that. I wish more folks had joined!

It definitely makes it more worthwhile to write when there is some reward involved!

Thank you very much! This was used as a greeting card design to raise money for the Pennsylvania SPCA when I lived up that way.

I'm from Persona Paper and I've met you over there. I've never met you in Bubblews or Bukisa even though I was a member of both these sites. Welcome to myLot. You'll enjoy it here and I must say you're quite a talented artist. The drawing is so magnificent. You should submit them for sale or make it into a cross stitch pattern and sell it on eBay.

I do remember you from Persona Paper. I was on Bubblews under the name AliCat, although I had Ali Canary as my "full name". I was on Bukisa years ago, but I didn't do much with it, and I closed my account after they stopped paying. I had maybe about a dozen articles. posted. Thank you, I do sell my art in an Etsy shop called AllSortsofArt.

I have been a member of MyLot for ten years - and that still blows my mind. I was on AC / Yahoo, Eps, Bubblews, PersonaPaper and a couple of others. I let out a hearty laugh when I see someone from the other sites surface here .. I'm like "what took you so long?" LOL
@AliCanary (1762)
11 Feb 16
Wow, ten years is a long time--I started on Associated Content in 2008, and I thought THAT was forever ago! I guess this place has real staying power. That's great!
