I -Was- Tammy85 On Bubblews...
Well, I wasn't planning to post anywhere today, but I was really behind with my interaction on Bubblews and here. I was busy with babysitting and my freelance writing orders, and I wasn't able to get to it over the week. I was at a birthday party and then out with my best friend yesterday, so I made today my "catch-up" day.
I clicked on my link via my Twitter bio, and I saw the link wasn't work. I went to the homepage and saw the message that they have shut down. Wow.
I reached $50 a few months ago and was saving it for something; but those plans changed. I was finally planning to cash out soon and this happened. It wasn't my main income, or even a part of my income at all, and I cannot be mad about the money when I know I should have cashed out a while ago. That's my fault. I am, however, a bit annoyed that there was no warning of this. I wasn't able to save anything I wanted to touch up and repost elsewhere. I wasn't able to let my fellow connections know where to find me so we could keep in touch. Nada. That part irritates me because a little warning would have been nice, ya know?
Sooo, here is my post, to let any of my old Bubblews connections know I'm right here. I used a different name on here because I just wanted to use that name for fun, and I know it may throw people off. But I was Tammy85 on Bubblews.
Now in regards to the Bubblews posts I had planned for the following week, because anyone who knows me, knows I have a "schedule" lol...
- I will not be continuing the 365 Blogging Challenge over here. I was already losing my groove with it, as some of my former fellow bubblers know, and I don't feel like moving the year-long challenge over here. I will, however, be using the rest of the posts as writing prompts on some days, so you'll see some of those over here.
- I WILL be continuing the Gratitude Challenge over here, and I am going to start from where I left off. It may seem strange to see it starting at 590-some, but I don't want to start over, I was just about to hit 600 lol. I'll remind everyone when I do it, which probably won't be tonight.
- I haven't decided what I am doing with the 5,000 Question Survey. I'm NOT starting it over. I can continue it over here or just use each part as a separate questionnaire. I'm open to suggestions though.
- Obviously I'll continue to blog as usual on here; with the typical "this is how my day went" posts, posts about writing, WWE, etc.
I have been on Bubblews for three years and knew a lot of people over there, which is why I had wound up doing more over there. But that part of my life is over. I do hope they'll let us get our content at some point, and I wouldn't expect to get paid anything owed as they couldn't afford to keep the website running any longer (what with the changes in the ads).
Sorry this is so long but you all should be used to it by now. I may use tomorrow to catch up on comments instead of tonight, as it's getting late now, and I'll start getting back into the grove of things on Tuesday. Let me see how the day goes, but things will fall into place. :)
Once again, my username over there was Tammy85, for those who may be coming from Bubblews; or already on here and we just haven't found each other yet. I hope it's okay to let people know of that.
I'm out. You all have a good night, a great upcoming week and take care. :)
EDIT ON 11/16/15: I just wanted to let everyone know - if you search for your name (i.e., tammys85 bubblews) or a specific title (and the word "bubblews after it) on Google, you may find a cached copy. Just click the triangle next to the URL, open it up, and then copy/paste your content. Someone else pointed it out to me, so I was able to get most of the bubbles I wanted (some I couldn't retrieve but there's nothing I can do about that now); just the ones that were important to me. I hope that helps.
