CGP Gallery: An update

I became a member of quite a while back but was not very active because of a number of issues. Trust being one and time being another.

However, once I crossed the $10 mark, I put in some extra time and effort to see if I could out. Besides, there are lots of ex-Bubblers there who were good, passionate so I decided to stick to the site.

Today, I have crossed the $20 amount there after writing some 80 posts and have asked for . My average is about 25 cents per post but I have seen some members who might easily be earning between $1-2 per post based on the rates and comments received by their posts.

I think it will take about a month for my request to be processed. I have not read a single post there which says “I got paid” which were common at . I am not even sure if I will receive my payment. Many people say, “I have heard some guy got paid,” but no one has a personal success story to share so far.

At the moment, I am quite hesitant to put in any more time and effort there. Is anyone here a member of CGP Gallery and what has been your experience so far?

My girlfriend writes over there and has reached the cash-out twice. She feels the same way, it might be something that she never sees, but she's taking the chance. I also thought it might be a little shady when I first saw the site.

Did she receive payment from there?

SoundNFury wrote on January 22, 2015, 2:09 AM

Not yet. I think she made it to cash-out like a week ago or so.

I don't trust them because admins write in broken English. That is definitely not a professional site and I will not invest in it.

I have not reached payout there yet. I am still a long way before I get to the threshold. I hope they do pay.

I've heard some when over there but I know nothing about that site other than some have said it doesn't seem to be very trustworthy.

I requested payout in the C site in the first of week of January. Since then, I have not posted any single article there though I visit the site once in a while. I have promised my myself not to post there until I get paid.

I am hoping for the same thing :)

I guess you will know by first week of February if CGP is trustworthy.

I took a look at it and decided it was a Bubble Ooze clone. No thanks.

Not looking for any other sites to write for at the moment; but good luck with your cash out request when you make it.

Dawnwriter Thanks for the update, this is the kind of information is valuable for those who are still undecided. In my case, because the site is managed out of Bangladesh I won't be joining.

My experience is pretty much the same as yours. I requested my money last night, and like you I'm nervously waiting to see what happens.

I have never been to that site. I have been on bubblews for awhile and always gotten paid there. I like this site as well, but it takes a lot of work to reach any type of payment.

It looks like such a carbon copy of Bubblews's site that I won't touch it - at least last time I looked at it. If they can't come up with their own site design, I don't feel like they are too reliable.

Yes, I am a member as well. I do post a few articles, but like yourself I am not very active. The biggest deterrent to me is the ruling against answering comments on our posts, which destroys the social aspect of the site.

I thought it was OK to reply there, but only if the comment asked a question or in some other way necessitated a response.

Koalemos wrote on January 30, 2015, 5:32 PM

That is quite correct, but the idea still tends to oppose interaction.

I guess I would rather stay here at persona. It is really hard to invest time with sites that don't pay you at all, it is just a waste of time and it is frustrating in the end. So I guess I rather stay here where people get paid for their hardworks. God bless.
