Think I'm Done With Bubblews

So as some of you here may know I started writing on Bubblews... I was there for about a year and a half... Sadly though I am thinking at this point I am probably done with it... It seems that most of the connections I had built up in that time has slowly left the site... Most of the ones whose writing I really enjoined reading are now gone... The few that remain there post far less than they originally did... I've thought about sticking around and attempting to try to build up connections with some of the new members... Sadly though I'm not a very social person so for me that is a lot of hard work, work that I'm not really sure I want to put into Bubblews... Work that could probably be better done elsewhere... Right now I'm not sure, I've posted a lot over there and I'm halfway to a cash out but at this point with as slow as my bank has been moving I don't see a cash out coming for at least another year and I don't think I can stick it out there much longer... Honestly I've thought about pulling everything and being done with it but a small part of me hopes tat now it is summer posts might pick up a bit over there... Then again I doubt it :(

You're probably better off just leaving. I have found that site to be quite awful actually...

I've mainly stuck around for some of the people, few connections had some interesting stuff but with them posting less and less I think you may be right. :)

I gave up on the site a week or two ago. I'm at $47 but with no one reading or commenting on my posts, I'll never reach $50. Arvind can keep the $47. With the way his site is failing, I'm pretty sure he needs the money more than I do.

Yeah, I'm currently setting somewhere around $23 but honestly I don't think I care anymore... Many people have been talking about not getting payments and many have left the site. I'm not sure it is even worth trying to get to the $50 cash out.

Since Arvind has not said one thing in months, I think it is dead and just may cease to exist soon.

It would be very hard to work for a year to cash out. If I'm honest, I'm not sure that site has a year left.

Actually, I do not think Bubblews is dead at all. I wrote posts based on &Tyler 's update a week or so ago and got a fair amount of interaction from him which gave me an indication that the proposed changes, while delayed, are certainly under way. Tech people cost a lot to employ. You pull them rather than keep them on if you are going under.

I am also earning more there than I was. Yes, it us slow, but that is true of everywhere.

I like it here too. I think this will be the better place for proper articles, but I am going to see how Bubblews fares for a while longer yet.

Meanwhile, Wikinut just paid me £2 something and I have over a hundred articles there.

I just do not feel I have anything to lose by sticking with all the sites I use and I do enjoy my connections.

To be honest, I am not that impressed when &Arvind writes. Yes, a CEO should keep in touch, and that is a Persona Paper strength, but the tech guys for any site are always going to be more able to say what is really happening, so I watch them.

yeah, better leave there. I had left there even though I had received my payment. Lots of people are still grumbling about kiv money.

I was never paid the last $50 and it is tiresome to keep asking ,I do go, every now and then, just to nag them and do get a stupid reply-'we are looking in to it'..... keep it mate! It means I can spread the word about how your site cons the ordinary folk Mr 'slippery'Arvind-I agree some nice people on the site ,or were-- 1st of June today ! I am off to have another nag for my $50-haha I am not holding my breath.

I am still there on a daily basis. I check in with my connections and I write a daily post. I have found that I like the interaction there better but I am working both sites.
