Another One Bites The Dust

How sad it is that there are so many sites going down the tubes. I'm talking about the sites that pay writers to write little articles and posts. For a while it was so nice to be able to log on write a post and make a little money. Now how ever, the sites seem to be following one another down that little rabbit hole into the land of extinction.

For me, the first one that really effected me and my way of making a dollar on line was Bubblews. I was going great guns on it and all of the sudden I was missing a check. The next thing I know I read that were not getting paid during a certain period of time. It just happened to be a time that had already past, we had already done the work. Well, I decided to stay with them and give them a chance to get themselves back together. I still write there but not as much as I did.

Then CpgGallery let us know that we would not be getting paid. To tell the truth, my relationship with them was not long. I had only done a couple of little posts for them.

Next came Elite Visitors. With them I wrote more posts, spent more time. I woke up this morning to find out that once again we were not going to get paid for the work we had done. This time, at least, it was a little more colorful. It turns out that one of the guys in power ran away with the money.

So, here I am banking on persona paper staying around. I am going to put everything I have into making persona paper and myself a success.

Here's looking at a successful and fruitful future.

I did so well on Bubblews, but never tried the other sites. When they pop up so fast, I guess they are bound to go down due to lack of planning.

After Bubblews I stopped trusting those sites, except for predominant ones like Hubpages. I am at PP because the payment rate is reasonable and it is unlikely that they will run into financial problems. Anyways I decided to invest in my own website and here at PP only.

I have been writing on hubpages for over 5 years. I love that site.

I did very well on Bubblews. I do hope they get I back together.

Even though one site seems to be "around" could make the case that the powers ran away with the money, too. Especially if they have the money for new ventures, but not to pay past payments. I also understand that some people are now filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau and getting some resolution, where pay is concerned.

It's been an interesting day watching all the developments as people write about this here and there.

Bubble ooze had red flags all over. No comment on the other two that you mentioned as I wasn't even signed up in both. Still feel bad for all the members of these two sites that put in the hard work and got nothing from it.

I am sick and tired of those guys robbing people we worked for. Are we suppose to just sit back and accept they taking us for a ride? then there are still those who believe we should be grateful when we receive something. This is the 3rd site I'm.working on and I hope and pray I wont be dissapointed again.

At least Bubblews paid very well for the past 2 years.

It is sad, and I too was hit hard when bubblews went down the tube. BTW, many are succesfully getting paid what was taken by filing a complaint with BBB. I and others have been posting about that this weekend.

After BUbblews had troubles, I started to write at PAA and Persona Paper and Hub pages, and posted a few photos in tsu. PAA already paid me a dollar hhehehehe... while giving my best effort at persona, I am hoping to get an added dollar tonight at my bank, got a 9% in my bank. God bless.

I've heard of Elite Visitors and CGP Gallery though haven't joined either site. What happened with CGP? You didn't say why they weren't paying anymore? Maybe you can try filing a complaint against the BBB with all these sites if they owe you money. I tried it with Bubblews and I was able to get my payment. Even wrote a tutorial about it. Good luck and I hope you and everyone else who lost money can get their payments too emoticon :smile:

You can add IDCircle to the list. I also notice that an awful lot of members here just are not bothering to post. You can't get paid if you do nothing.

By now you probably heard that Bubblews died and no longer exists. Its sad because it had so much potential, if it had only been run by people who knew how to run online sites.
