This is the End of the Road For Me

I feel as if I am re-living the whole nightmare all over again.

After Bubblews, i had poured all my energy, time and any writing skills that I possess into Persona Paper. After PP stopped being an earning site, I joined Blogjob.

I had accumulated almost 8000 points there and now I can no longer access the website because of my country of origin. Bubblews had put a blanket ban on people from Vietnam, Bangladesh and Pakistan and now Blogjob also seems to have restricted membership from certain countries. Why don't these sites make it clear in the FAQ's beforehand.

But I cannot blame the admins entirely. People from many non English speaking countries join these websites thinking they can earn money from home without any skills, dragging the whole site down.

The problem is that it hurts people like me too and I am feeling very injured and wounded at the moment.

I have written to the owner of the website. I don't know if he will bother to reply. I just want a chance to redeem whatever i have earned there or at least remove all my posts from there.

After that it is the end of the road for me as far as writing online is concerned. I am done with this agony, anxiety and injustice.

I have not heard of this. I am so sorry. It is unjust. I hope the site's owners can sort things out for you.

In the meanwhile, you do have a regular blog elsewhere, where you can right, yes?

Please, don't lost touch, Gulrukh.
This makes me sad.

I am on their FAQ page, and it says this: "Which countries can participate?
People from all over the world can participate in the site and in various business opportunities, but all of your content must be written in the English language."

You certainly should have the opportunity to retrieve your work. That is VERY annoying.

Sad to hear that. But, if you only focused on bitLanders I am sure you wont be disappointed. bitLanders is the best site for me. I just couldn't think of new topics to write that's why I am not earning much there these days.

myLot comes to mind. I heard they will be paying out at a dollar minimum for the next month or so. I am earning at that site. You might want to check this site out before deciding to throw in the towel. Good luck whatever you decide.

That is shocking. Membership of a site should be based on ability and not on country of origin!

The same thing happened to me a days ago and, as you can imagine, I was also very upset and almost determined to stick only to MyLot and avoid starting all over again. Luckily I can now access my Blogjob account without any problem, so I guess the problem has been taken care of and I hope it won't happen again.

You need to try again. A problem occurred when the site was under attack. That might have been the trouble

I want to thank all of you for your support. For 3 days, I kept on getting the message "Limited Access due to Security reasons" on my screen whenever I tried to log in. It was so reminiscent of Bubblews days that I panicked. But thanks to quick response by admin Sheridan , the matter was resolved and I can now log in.

Glad it was resolved for you. Coral is CoralLevang . There must be so many attacks. Another site I belong to (not writing) has also been under attack by hackers stealing information or using APIs (gateways) to access what they have not paid for.

I didn't see this until Bill posted link to it in our BlogJob PP support group. I'm glad you're in again.
