To Bubble or Not to Bubble?
My clock has run down. The month has elapsed, and I've had no news about the last Bubblews redemption I requested. (Not that they have to pay me today – they said up to 60 days, after all. But I had heard several others saying they were paid around day 30.)
But I had hoped at least that I'd reach $50, and be able to request a redemption today. My bank is hovering a short way from the $40-mark and has barely moved in days regardless of how much I post. I think maybe this is the end for me.
When the site was more profitable, it was worth my while to spend the extra time interacting there. But since the admin have been actively discouraging people from thinking of Bubblews as anything even resembling a job, and since they've lowered the earnings drastically, I can't afford to spend that time chatting – or even posting there - when I could be writing for a site or a client who does consider it work and who is willing to remunerate me fairly for my skill and labour.
I posted twice there today, for a grand total of 45 likes and 13 comments. I earned a whopping 71 cents! I can remember not so long ago knowing beyond the shadow of a doubt that publishing a single post would drive the bank balance up by that amount or more in mere minutes. I wouldn't even post the next one until I'd earn $2. And I could easily make $50 in a week.
Now I fall short of that amount, even after 30 days.
I've been staying on because I still was earning there. And it was still paying me better than my other revenue sharing sites. But if I put the same effort into Persona Paper I'd probably earn more here – especially since I can control at least one part of my earnings by deciding how much to comment. Daily Two Cents is looking good too. I've just started there, but my earnings so far are quite good, considering I haven't connected with many people there yet.
I've also started to add more client writing – small jobs and low pay right now, but even those little jobs are paying better than Bubblews. Some a lot better.
And of course, there's Tsu. While it's not paying as well as Bubblews yet, I suppose it might do if I posted a few more kitty cats...
I wonder, should I just start posting an endless stream of good morning and good night posts on Bubblews? Maybe I'll get more traffic that way...
