Life After The Bursting Bubble…

(I meant to post this a while ago, but I was having issues with my browsers/laptop and had to reboot, and then I had to shut down. So it's all basically one big rambling mess. Sorry lol.)

Yep, this is my life after Bubblews, and to be honest...it’s not all that different lol. So Bubblews is gone. Whatever, I still have Persona Paper and MyLot. I have found some former bubblers on here, and many former bubblers on MyLot. I edited my previous post about retrieving some of our old bubbles. I found most of the bubbles I wanted to save, and the rest were just typical blog/journal posts. I’m not worried about the money because Bubblews was never my main source of income. I have removed it from my bookmarks, changed the links on my social media profiles and unfollowed Bubblews on Twitter/Facebook. It was a good ride for a while, and the way they shut down on everyone sucked, but I’m moving on as of this post. :)

Sooo, with that being said, I’m in the midst of taking as many orders from this client as possible. I think they may be having an issue with accidentally blacklisting/blocking authors, as they are testing out that feature. I am afraid I could be one of the next on that list, despite the fact that they seem to like my work. I don’t think they realize that testing the feature can lead to something permanent. There is other work and other clients, but I do enjoy working with this client, so I am hoping things stay okay as far as they go. P.S. - I just found some WWE (merchandise) related orders with this client. Yay! It is not often I find a WWE related order on the job board, so it’s always fun to find one haha. I do want to finish up soon, because I am suddenly feeling a bit icky. It comes and goes, and it needs to just go.

I am coming to a point where I may need to take a day away from Twitter. I am sick of seeing the fighting, people wishing bad things on others and just drama all around from people. Who needs that much negativity? I take a step back every now and then so I can get a break from it. Social media is -supposed- to be fun, ya know?

So we didn’t babysit Monday or today because the munchkin was with his Grandmother. We are not babysitting Thursday or Friday because his Momma is off work. Yeah, tomorrow is the only day we’re babysitting. It should be fine, and I’ll just spend my time snuggling with him lol. :) He’ll snuggle with me until I’m all comfortable, and then he wants to go play haha.

I had two more posts planned for tonight; a writing prompt and the Gratitude Challenge that I am bringing over from Bubblews. I think I am going to move the writing prompt to another day this week, but I’ll probably get to the Gratitude Challenge tonight. :) I’m starting from , rather than starting over with the challenge lol.

Anywho, I’m gonna wrap this up because it’s becoming a mess haha. You all take care and I’ll be back soon for the Gratitude Challenge. :)

I have never seen much of that fighting and arguing you mentioned on my Twitter feed. I can't say I'll miss Bubblews much. I hadn't spent much time there in a long while.

Yup. They're gone. Let's hope your client doesn't blacklist you by accident.

It took me a while to move on from Bubblews after the shock of a year ago. I just don't want to hear anything more about it now.

I can understand that, but people (including myself) are going to mention it from time to time. It was a part of our lives for a while so yeah.

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 17, 2015, 11:06 PM

So far, so good. I hope it stays that way, and that they take other authors off the blacklist as well. I understand testing the feature, but it leads to a permanent arrangement.

I won't have to see it anymore cause I muted the involved party. I'm sick of seeing it. At this rate, people outta just re-follow each other and deal with it in DMs. As for Bubblews, I'll miss the good old days, but I'm fine lol.

I had a funtastico time at Bubblews. But now the bubble has burst due to too much inflation and my only regret is I fell for all their empty promises. Meanwhile I am over here now. I remember when I got my first article published here at Persona Paper and I was so proud of myself. That article about the Boost Mobile guy who calls himself Skooter made him so happy he shared my article with his family and I was proud when I announced to him and a few others that I write for Persona Paper. There is much hope for this site's success and the success of the writers here. Now that Bubblews has popped, I have more time to devote to this site with new material and higher expectations.

Yes, Bubblews is gone, hadn't been on there in months, now only on this site and myLot.

Paulie wrote on November 18, 2015, 1:37 AM

I don't like to hear about it because I'll never be able to forget and write off all of the money which Bubblews stole from me.

What? They're gone? hihihi. Seriously, I feel it is best they shut down the site rather than continue to dupe everyone.

Colibry21 wrote on November 18, 2015, 10:21 AM

I can't say as I'm too surprised they're gone. Hopefully, you're able to keep your clients, and they don't accidentally block you, or anything like that. Enjoy your time with the little one.

It's so sudden. I was going to come over here and write about it because I didn't know if they knew. But, you did it for me.

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 19, 2015, 7:03 PM

lookatdesktop - We all fell for their empty promises, but when one door closes, another opens up. Karma will catch up to them, and meanwhile we can post on here, MyLot and wherever else we wind up.

LeaPea2417 - I was there up until two days before the end, and was busy Saturday and Sunday. I post on here and MyLot. I'm on DTC, but barely, meh. I'm fine with this place and MyLot for the most part.

motrojam - Yep. They shut down on Sunday. The "goodbye message" may still be on Bubblews dot com.

Colibry21 - Everything has been okay with the writing, and babysitting. Thanks!

Lillybell - Yeah it was. I don't know WHEN they shut down on Sunday, but I found out sometime that night.

I understand that, but it's best not read those posts tho, because people are entitled to post about it... ya know?

The 'b' site finally bid farewell from the internet. Not that they were doing anyone any good while they were around these past few months.
