Another writing site has closed

I have been writing on the internet for about a year and a half now , and I have learned a lot about writing from a few internet writing sites. One of the first writing sites that I ever had any success with was Bubblews.

I joined Bubblews in June last year and to begin with I made quite a bit of money because of the way that they paid their members. They would pay members to post, like, share and comment on other members posts. It was easy to make money on that site but then it all changed. The people who run Bubblews realised that they were being too generous with the amounts that they were paying out and the site was not sustainable. So about a year ago they cut back drastically on the amounts that they paid out. I continued to write for them until today when I visited their website and found it closed down.

This is sad news and lets hope that other writing sites do not follow them

I think it is sad that another site is gone, but from what I've read they didn't help themselves, or their writers, over much.

Though Bubblews had never paid me for my previous redemptions, it really saddens me that they finally closed.

I think we all saw the writing on the wall with Bubblews. They screwed everyone from day one, including themselves. I as actually amazed that it lasted as long as it did. People now are looking for something more stable. That's why lots of them went back to MyLot. and some have come here, or both. These sites are dwindling though. There is another one I know of and I have joined called BlogJob. They seem okay, but it does not have the feel of here or MyLot. These two sites are very straight forward and I personally prefer that.

It is sad that this site is gone. It was a good place to be. There were a lot of nice people there. I enjoyed interacting with them. I am a little upset that the administration didn't pay more attention to the site. It went downhill since they changed the rules and such, and the fact that they weren't present didn't help much in my opinion. Oh well ... It happens.

Five years ago, writing sites were at their peak and Panda Google started the downfall. As usual, Google is responsible in its quest to complete control online content.

Yes, quite a few people have been bemoaning this but it's surprising it has lasted this long.

I was MadMannArt at bubblews for three years. I had the first post there to go viral. Let's hope PP can keep track of our pennies a lil better! LOL

As I have said many times, Bubblews was great in the beginning. It is sad what happened to it.
