must do better

Good evening everyone, hope you are all well. yes, it is me and I am still here.

Like many of you I found myself here after the debacle at the other site. As I was close to redeeming again, so in my head I had the grand idea of writing on both sites, at least until I reached the threshold on the other site.

Unfortunately what seems to have happened is that I hardly write on either site! But I am determined that I can do better. I will endeavour to post and comment more frequently on this site from now on. I can even access this site from work so I don't really have any excuse.

As an aside, does everyone have a ridiculously small font size as default when submitting a new post?

I know where you're coming from. I also had grand ideas of posting a lot on both sites, which just hasn't materialised. I can't access this one from work so I'm restricted to evenings/weekends on here.

Snap! That's exactly what i had planned to do but I find that I am enjoying myself so much on Persona Paper that I can't be bothered with Bubble Ooze any more. I'm hardly there at all now.

MelissaE wrote on January 14, 2015, 6:06 PM

Yes to the font size. I, too, need to be more diligent about writing every day. I'm trying to write one post per day and comment on several. I have been very pleased with this site so far.

Things in my head are so often much better than what actually happens

WorDazza wrote on January 14, 2015, 6:38 PM

The story of my, and many other people's, life in a nutshell I think emoticon :smile:

ison1 wrote on January 14, 2015, 6:38 PM

I really like it on here as well. I just need to commit a bit more of my online time to this site

ison1 wrote on January 14, 2015, 6:40 PM

Thanks, I though maybe I'd changed a setting somehow. I think this site is great too, just ned to spend more time here

wolfgirl569 wrote on January 14, 2015, 7:38 PM

I try to just write a post there every couple of days now. But I am just waiting to see if I get my money and then I will propbably be out of there

WordChazer wrote on January 15, 2015, 12:16 AM

Yes, me too. I thought it was my eyesight going. elitecodex , perhaps an idea for a future tweak, to make default font size 12 or even 14?

WordChazer wrote on January 15, 2015, 12:26 AM

I only go to the other site to copy my reviews to the computer and delete the online version, at a rate of several a day. Once they're safe I'll look at my blog posts. I'm earning about a cent every couple of days so I MIGHT just squeak in a redemption if I keep interacting over there, but who knows how much longer the site will be in existence anyway, at this rate?

bestwriter wrote on January 15, 2015, 12:47 AM

Welcome here with more activity.
Yes. I have brought this to the notice of 'contact' and also elitecodex .
But there is a way. Just hold on to control and press the plus sign. If the size gets too big repeat the process but this time with the minus sign to get to the size you need. I am now using the control and plus sign to increase the size of my fonts here.

Gina145 wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:12 AM

The font size doesn't bother me, but maybe I should make it bigger to accommodate my readers.
I hope you manage to redeem at the other site soon, so that you don't have to worry about it any more.

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:20 AM

I still post there but it's very slow, and it doesn't seem to be picking up much.

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:20 AM

I really thought it was something I had accidentally clicked

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:22 AM

Oh yes, I get the work around, but it just seems a strange default setting

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:23 AM

Hello Gina :) At the rate I'm going I should be redeeming at about Christmas!

bestwriter wrote on January 15, 2015, 7:25 AM

Admin is aware of this but we have a solution atleast for the time being. Right? emoticon :smile:

wolfgirl569 wrote on January 15, 2015, 9:28 AM

no it doesnt. I got a couple of cents on my last post.

maramadalina wrote on January 15, 2015, 12:49 PM

As far as I am concerned, the other site is just a memory. I do not tend to waste time with people who lie.I prefer to write on serious sites with serious people. Have a great evening!

Kasman wrote on January 15, 2015, 2:02 PM

ison1 and MelissaE - you do know you can change the font size? On the 'Submit New Article' page or in 'Edit' on an already published article you will find the toolbar. Clicking on 'Font Sizes' will change it and you can also change it by clicking on the 'H sizes' - the higher the number the smaller the font size. If you don't choose any font size you get the default size which is H4 - that's what I write all my posts in.

kat123456 wrote on January 15, 2015, 3:10 PM

I am in the same boat - close to redemption on the other site and hoping to get there and post on both, not doing brilliantly at that!

mrsmerlin wrote on January 15, 2015, 4:45 PM

I only go there to read friends posts and comment on them really. My redeem amount is too low to worry about as I would never raise enough to claim it. I haven't had much time on here either unfortunately but I am trying to improve that

Gina145 wrote on January 15, 2015, 5:33 PM

So soon? Do you think that site will still be around by then?

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 6:34 PM

That's a good point, it could be but I have no confidence in the owners

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 6:35 PM

It's such a shame. Most people would have accepted that the rate had to change, but to be lied to and taken for fools?

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 6:37 PM

hahaha, welcome to the club. We can and must do better!! :)

ison1 wrote on January 15, 2015, 6:38 PM

Likewise with this site. I like it here but am struggling with finding time to be on here

Ambermol wrote on January 16, 2015, 2:34 PM

I also thought of juggling and keep forgetting what I've said where now ( which is not an uncommon occurrence in real life!) I've had little time to write anywhere apart from my own journal recently anyway.
Ys to the fonts.

Ruby3881 wrote on January 16, 2015, 11:21 PM

I find the font quite comfortable, even with my none too great eyesight. It does depend on the size and resolution of your screen, though. If you're working on a mobile device, it might help to zoom in. I find a lot of folks choose an enormous font that actually makes it harder for me to read their content. It's best to only use larger fonts or header text for highlighting more important parts of a text. You don't need them for the entire post. Let the reader set the zoom to suit her needs, and you set the zoom for your own viewing at a comfortable magnification for you.

ison1 wrote on January 17, 2015, 2:56 PM

Hello. I hope that you don't just disappear completely, you are one of may faves :)

ison1 wrote on January 17, 2015, 3:00 PM

Hello:) One think I've noticed is that the font is smaller when typing the post than that which gets published. Maybe that is why some people post with such big font, it looks samller when they are typing

valmnz wrote on January 18, 2015, 11:27 PM

I just started here today and have managed to juggle both sites today. I'm still a long way off redeeming there.

johnnydod wrote on January 19, 2015, 10:49 AM

It takes a while to get started again John

ison1 wrote on January 19, 2015, 3:18 PM

Hello there! Another name I recognise. Pleased to see you here as well :)

ison1 wrote on January 19, 2015, 3:19 PM

It does indeed. It's all very flat on the other site and it's hard to get motivated. (knock on effect to this site)

Ambermol wrote on January 20, 2015, 9:25 AM

Aww! Thanks. I just seem to be short on time at present. I enjoy writing and interacting though.

Ruby3881 wrote on January 20, 2015, 2:34 PM

I honestly couldn't tell you, as I do all my writing offline and then just paste into the submit form. But yes, it's possible this affects people's choice of font sizes.

johnnydod wrote on January 21, 2015, 6:31 AM

I know what you mean john, it is hard to keep writing for so little money

soupdragon wrote on January 21, 2015, 3:04 PM

I had all these good intentions a few weeks ago about writing regularly, but I have slowed up these last few days. Work always gets in the way. I am determined to keep going though, even if I am slow

Dragonfairy1 wrote on January 23, 2015, 9:45 AM

I knew I'd find you on here eventually, I only joined about a week ago and really need to make more effort on here as it's a nice site, but I'm now here, bubblews and cgp gallery. I really need to learn to organise my time :)

motrojam wrote on February 2, 2015, 2:58 AM

It seems like I too have the same dilemma. I hope we could devote more time to each.

LeaPea2417 wrote on December 19, 2015, 8:47 PM

Bubblews is dead now and I do hope you will come back to this site and give it another chance.
