Introduction for RikRavado

I'm a consultant training analyst (semi-retired). I love writing and have spent several years writing on-line at sites such as Hubpages, Blogger and more recently Bubblews. Other hobbies include photography, walking and, more recently cooking. Like many others, I've often wondered how Bubblews could survive as their business model makes no sense at all. It was refreshing to read your FAQs and other information and see the transparency and honesty about things like remuneration that made so much sense. A social media site is never going to be a get rich quick scheme and a cent ($0.01) for every transaction was totally unrealistic with the amount of spam and plagiarism going on on that site. I'm looking forward to participating on a site with realistic goals where I can interact and share with other serious writers. Favourite food? Fish and Chips, Shepherd's Pie or something Italian!

Oooh I love fish and chips!

Welcome to Persona Paper. I don't have much of a clue how things work around here as I'm still quite a newbie but I'm sure we'll work it out.

I'm in the same boat but will start to post and see how it goes. PS: Your reply has made me think about fish and chips!

I , like you have come from Bubblews - do like the site here so far but have not entirely abandoned Bubblews as yet

Exactly the same for me - I'm curious to see what on Earth will happen next at Bubblews. This site seems a better bet, however!

totally agree with your thoughts on Bubblews - it's downfall is inevitable - sad with much great writing talent in there too
