I Want To Rip My Hair Out

I try my best to be a patient person. Sometimes that works. Other times I just want to start picking at things, digging at things. My eyes perhaps. I want to dig them out with spoons. I am well aware that it is a painful proposition. Yet still, it lingers there in my thoughts. Or I could pull my fingernails off one by one with a pair of pliers. Painful as well.

Or I can rip my hair out one single, painful hair at a time until I look like Telly Savalas had he got caught up in a strange mist of glue and ran through a field of dandelion fuzzies...

That's sort of how I feel this morning after having logged onto my Bubblews account. You know, they were down for maintenance most of yesterday. Doing what, only the Big Guy upstairs knows. I think, based on my experiences this morning, that they clearly were not maintaining anything at all.

Mucking it up would certainly be a more fitting assessment of the goings on over there.

And it is frustrating as heck since I have people to see, things to do, rants to write. I suppose in the end it is okay. There is respite in another place that luckily was found before the shenanigans took form over there , at that other place. And really, I've been neglecting spending time here for whatever reason. Now is as good a time as any to get my butt in gear and spend a day with PersonaPaper finishing that assessment I was talking about in a previous post.

The latter idea sounds way more appealing that anything else I have suggested in this article.

We all are in the same boat my dear, Have patience something very new and exciting is on the way. I suppose.

That's what they keep on saying. I suppose the proof will be in the pudding. Right now all I am getting is muck that looks like pudding. lol

Definitely looks like pudding, the chocolate colored variety...

lol. Yes...but I happen to think you may be referring to something a little less appetizing. I could be wrong. :)

Yes they pay more there (right now). Yes you may have a good build up of cash there and might even be close to redemption. Yes they are promising great things for July (halfway through July, no signs yet).

Yes they are down yet again. Yes it's frustrating for everyone. Yes there is somewhere else that we can write emoticon :smile:
To be honest I haven't seen a glitch here on PP so far, or if there was it's been a minor one that wasn't even important to me or it was fixed before I had a chance to notice it. PP is fast, it's always there when you want to read or post.

You might earn more on that other site right now, but if the earnings go up here, which they will as (a) advertising is optimized and (b) memberships increase, then a good portfolio of posts ought to be worth as much as on the other site, especially if on here they are better optimized for the search engines. Only time will tell, but if you are confident enough to post only 50% of the time on here, I do believe that in time those posts will be worth more.

Whatever maintenance they're doing, I don't see any major changes since they first started "updating" the site. And they leave us blind most of the time, wondering what the heck is going on, only to give us an update 8 hours late.

All great points, and I definitely plan to spend a higher percentage of my time here in future than I have in the past. I think there are good things about the site that are definitely worth contributing to, and being part of, and of course the site needs posts to keep on going and growing, and so the only thing we can do individually is make those posts available for the site to grow with. Thanks for the valuable insight.

Definitely one of the less desirable aspects of the site to be sure. Even after the "maintenance" updates, not sure what changes are being made, if any at all...except that the site works worse than before the maintenance. lol

I'm of the mind I'll be underwhelmed again. Old Arvind has done me a world f good but, let's face it. He tends to over-promise on a lot. If it's something his staff is causig, he should fire them all and get some good help.

Not wrong... unfortunately... I think only time will tell which of these two sites wins or at least takes the lead in the next year. The two key factors will be I think earnings and reliability, with spam and plagiarism being a third factor to consider as well.

You are welcome. It's a shame that so many people come in expecting to earn a lot of money right away and then leave when they find this isn't the case. It's very important to give the site good content to help it grow, because good content means good traffic from Google, and we know what that can lead to.

Ditto for July 22, 2014.
