Goodbye Bubblews

So the holidays are over, I have finished up my orders, long since shipped them and finally have time to get back to my normal online routine... I couldn't sleep, sadly this happens a lot, so here it is 4am and I'm poking around on the internet... I pop over to Bubblews... Only to discover that it is no longer in service... Apparently after three years they have closed down... Though I didn't write much over there near the end I am still kinda disappointed... I had quite a few contacts that I got to know over my time there and I will surely miss them... It leads me to wonder, just how long has the site been down? Is it recent or has it been down for some time? When did it go down? And biggest question I have is what happened to the writers who stuck with the site till the very end? Did they just move on and stop writing or did they come here or other sites similar to this? Will I build up meaningful connections that I look forward to reading here or will I just amble through the many posts and not find anyone I can relate to? Sadly I did not get the chance to say goodbye to the few people I truly got to know over there but if by chance they happen to see this, goodbye, or maybe hello, I'm not sure, just well I miss you guys and whatnot.

A number of people on here previously wrote at BWS, though some of those have also now gone onto other sites.

I forgot when was the last time I checked and found that it's closed already. They deleted me 2x so I searched for other paying sites and chosen

It was a couple of months ago when it closed. It really is sad because it had such great potential if only it could have been run right.

I have been told that many are at a site called mylot. I checked it out. It seems to be more about starting discussions than posting articles.

I checked that site out a few months ago... Turns out I had an account from years ago... Not sure how much I will be using it, I might if I find some of the people I talked to on Bubblews.

The B has been closed down for several weeks now. some of the writers came here and others moved to other sites. Some may have just abandoned online writing altogether.

I think as you become more active and get to know your connections here you will find it even more rewarding than the B.

It was a good site while it lasted, I met many interesting people there. :)

I'll have to look into that one. :)
