When Bubblews Closed
September 19, 2017 12:16pm CST
I came across an article the other day about Bubblews and its sad demise. And how some people from Bubblews possibly moved over to Mylot. I never got the chance to write on Bubblews and never earned money there, but I have heard some people managed to earn a fair bit and I think it's sad that there isn't another site like it; where you can make the same kind of money. If there was I'd be trying it out but of course it would still depend on your topic and how interesting people would find it. Is there anybody here on this site who used Bubblews before? Do you miss? And have you found somewhere else that you are making a reasonable amount of money on?

It is sad though that there is even such a thing as 'unrealistic amounts" for people who take the time and effort to write. I was not on Bubblews so I don't know the full story. But what do you consider unrealistic when it comes to someone who does take the time to write something and write it well?

@percyboots Well, myLot isn't a 'writing site' so I really couldn't tell you. I think one should just be satisfied that they get anything at all to come here and socialize with people. After all, this is not a job, so getting 'paid' isn't really a top priority to me, although I think it is nice.
@percyboots I'm also an ex-bubbler. A lot of money was given to scammers and plagiarists of which there were hordes. Whole villages in Vietnam seemed to live on their earnings from bubblews. One could open the site at any time of the day and report, report, report. The admins occasionally deleted an account but the culprits always came back.
@HazySue That is awesome! I've been thinking about it. I started on HubPages but it was just a few short stories and I didn't get much response, so I haven't been active. I am now on Steemit-just started about a month ago.
@SHOHANA Well I'm really sad about that. And I mean that. I love to write and I think many people on this site love to and to interact. I like this site, but not having a job, I wish I could earn, like I'm sure many people do, more money for doing something I love. Maybe I'm dreaming too much.

I made bank on Bubblews for awhile. Then the payment structure changed, I didn't make nearly as much, so I stopped writing there. The funniest thing that ever happened there was when @freak369 earned like $2000 on one of her Candy Crush articles and Arvind kept trying to tap dance around having to pay it.
$2000.00 on one article!! Wow! The admins obviously didn't know what they were doing. Maybe they mean't well but it seems that it when out of control. I mean it would be nice to make $50 or something reasonable on an article. It's real bummer that it went under. Sometimes businesses go under because they grow too fast, and management can't keep up with.

I've been on Bubblews. Got paid every time except once when they had a glitch. Was supposed to get a bit over fifty bucks but never did. And when they shut down I didn't get what was in the bank because I hadn't reached the minimum. Wonder if they paid those that did reach the minimum. Their earnings program wasn't full proof. And there were people that were gaming the site to increase their earnings. That's what I heard anyway. I made a few hundred bucks there. And that's pretty low compared what many others were making there.

Bubblews was THE place to be at one time because it was so easy to earn. I must admit I earned quite a bit there and although many people complained they didn't get paid I always did. The biggest problem with the site was the constant crashing as it grew too big too fast and their server just couldn't cope. That was the reason I left in the end because it was so frustrating. You could actually lose posts if you sent one just as the site crashed. I moved over to Chatabout (which has also gone now). I actually learned about it through Bubblews and stayed there for some years, I now post on ForumCoin where I have been for more than 2 years and I can't say I miss Bubblews at all..
I wrote in the 'b' site and got paid. However, I have two payouts that were unpaid. I know that more members had bigger unpaid amounts. If they do come back, the first thing on their 'to do' list should be paying all the legitimate members that they ripped off.
