Visiting the Past
For some reason, this bookmark showed up in my bookmarks bar, peeking up from a long list of forgotten web destinations, taking the place of some recently discarded site. Persona Paper. I never was quite sold on the name, but at least it was easy to remember.
I wasn't very good at writing here. I reached payout at $5, but didn't take it because the owners were going through the usual growing pains of a site and I wanted to give them a chance to succeed. Then the value of our banks fell. I struggled back to $5, but the payout threshold changed to $20. You can see where this is going.
But I am surprised to see so many members still writing and socializing here. I admire the loyalty. I think. I don't think there is any monetary reward promised. I don't know who runs the place anymore. I don't think there are any of these sites that make money these days. The web has changed - again. Hey, I remember when the blogosphere was the world of the future, a vibrant community of enthusiastic contributors. Until it wasn't.
I am going to look around a bit. I hope that PP doesn't go away. I may come back every 3 years and 1 day to check on it.
