Finally did it!

Well...I finally did it.

After months of "popping" in and out and giving the benefit of the doubt, the doubt finally won and the benefit died.

What am I referring to? Good ol'Bubblews. Since I joined in Nov, 2013, I had posted 169 respectful, relevant, well written and(mostly) grammatically correct "bubbles". For well over a year, not one earned me more than 0 to 4 "likes" and, except for the scant few and far between(and the occasional residual over weeks and months), 0 comments. I made it a practice to interact as much as possible and even the comments I left on postings, after reading them, for the most part, got no response. And I want to clarify that I wasn't the only contributor to that site in this strange situation.

The only thing I can deduce from all this is that there is a little "clique" that "backslap" and "like " the members of their very selective little club while ostracising anyone who, apparently, doesn't fit their version of "worhty".

So, I cancelled that account once and for all and moved my business here, at Persona Paper, as many other bubblers have done in the recent weeks. I've seen a lot of great postings here as well as great personalities. I have a good feeling about this site.

So...let's see what the future brings.

Good for you. I have also moved over. It is not worth the effort.

Hey...I know you! Glad to see you here. It's not so much about the money as it is being treated with a little respect. See ya'round emoticon :smile:

I've moved over from bubblews too - just trying to find my way around now

Well, I have never been over there but I've certainly read enough about it here. Welcome, and make yourself at home.

Haven't completely moved out of that site yet as I still visit the posts of my connections over there. I do not write there anymore though and write full time here in Persona Paper.

Hello, I'm Melissa from Middle Tennessee. I've been here for a little over two months, and I love the interaction. I try to post at least once and read and comment on as many as I can in an hour or two. I think you will like it here if you are active.

Activity is always key, and the more relationship-building there is, the better it becomes.
