Finally found my Bubblews profile

Looks like I originally joined February 21, 2013, and was the 16,493 person to join but I didn't really start being extremely active there until myLot cancelled their payment program. I've found several other former & current myLotters and their profiles there as well...which means if you lost all your articles when the site 'closed', there is a good chance that with a bit of diligence, you may be able to find access to your profiles (and many discussions) through this link as well. I see several of you that are active here now as I am scrolling through it. Here's hoping this helps some of you retrieve 'lost' material.

What great information, I didn't get all of my posts off of it and should try to do that now as well as close out my account. Thanks!

You can't 'close' any account because they are static 'saved' page, you can only look at them, not interact with them

@JolietJake Thanks, I looked at it, I deleted most of my posts before they closed. I was so disgusted with them during that period of time. I remember when I joined this site, I spent so much of my time going back to that site to delete delete delete. But I didn't get it all.

That's interesting. I thought - and hope it still is - okay to use my Bubblews stuff elsewhere. Do you know if that is the case?

I don't know about other sites, but (and I got this from Alex) it is fine to use it here since it is no longer available on a different site other than as an archived page.

The posts I really would have liked to have saved were the instructional posts I did with photos....I could have before they closed if a change some time before that hadn't eliminated all but one of the photos. I miss bubblews and sure miss the $200+ I was getting paid every month.

There are 70 captures of your profile, not all links will show articles, some articles will be old format with multiple pictures because they were archived under the old format. https://web.archive.org/web/20130414014430/http://www.bubblews.com/account/13348-marsha32

I had some (instructional posts) that got screwed up when they nuked some of the photos. I think it was one of their grand changes that we were supposed to be excited about.

I always kept a back up, not that I wrote anything important. But now I really blog, 300 to 500 words each or more so saving is important. Bubble was the place I ever wrote, I loved that money!

I did a few discussions there at exactly 400 characters just for the heck of it...kind of like doing some 200 character titles here just for the heck of it. I'm normally not real 'wordy', getting 300-500 words for me would be a bit rough.

Seems that a lot of myLotters were Bubblews members before. I don't know this site. But I come across a lot of discussions on it.

Many people were here, and went there when myLot stopped paying, and then many came here from there after they (Bubblews) stopped paying...it can get a bit tricky tracking everyone
