I have finally found a plus for writing sites closing down
February 15, 2016 9:59am CST
I was just going through my Wikinut zip file. I have been starting to take down my Persona Paper posts. I still have Bubblews posts to sort. Today I realised there is a plus side. I keep finding things I forgot I ever wrote. It has been rather fun. In time, my blogs are going to have a lot more content!

If you take down your PP posts, it deducts from your earnings total. There is a chance to be compensated as stated by the owner. I have refrained from deleting as I have $11.88 and don't want to miss out on a potential payout. Once PP closes, you are free to repost those articles anyway.

Yes, that is true, but I had not even passed the half way mark and I think I can do more now with those articles elsewhere. To be honest, I think they will keep the site up for a fair while, but I just do not want to take any chances as I did not archive.

If you saved everything as you went, that's great. Me, I talked about it but never followed through. It was enough to downsize my photos to put them up on bubblews, I didn't take much time to save my posts. I thought I did well to save my urls' but that doesn't help when the cache disappears. I was able to retrieve a good portion, like thirty posts, but I wrote over a thousand. I did web clip a few that I 've not looked over yet. I went right away, or within a few days after hearing about PP to copy those posts so I'd have them.

I always wrote my text offline, and it's proven it's worth time and time again! I have lots of things that will eventually be reworked for my own blog, and as you know, Huckleberry the Kitten has been doing his blogging training as the editor of The Guiness Blog, reworking Guiness the Cat's old content for archival and reuse. I always thought there might be potential ideas for ebooks, too.
