Let's Be Real and Give Bubblews Its Due
I vaguely recall hearing about a new writing site I'd figured was too good to be real. Its name? BUBBLEWS.
Bubblews was basically a site that was willing to post just about everything and anything. They weren't fussy. AND, they offered great pay.
Well, it was too much for me to resist indefinitely. I just plain HAD to join. So, join I did.
And write I did. And paid, I was. The main problem was payment was somewhat inconsistent. But at 50% of the intake, who should I be to complain too vehemently?
The "owner" of the website had a foreign-sounding name, even though he was located in the U.S. Oh, he'd make great boasts. Boasting is never a good idea. But (and let's be real) it is not the property of an obscure minority. It is more common than all that. In fact, it's prevalent.
Well, as the image associated with the article suggests (a snapshot of the statement posted with the website), Bubblews went belly up. And detractors began to assault it even more vigorously than they had while it still existed. But, for all that,
BUBBLEWS was a unique and fascinating "experiment" that lasted far longer than might have been anticipated. I'm pleased to have been associated with it.
