Here is a short recap of my personal experience with this social media/blogging site and the difference between actual article writing and blogging.

A sad feeling in my heart

How can I explain it? I feel somewhat relieved but then again I also feel a bit lost because of having to say goodbye to many old friends on Bubblews. So many of us stuck it out to the bitter end through all the missed payments, glitches and cut in pay rates.

It is all for the best

Yes, it was a bit too much for me especially since I have so many home improvement projects along with my hobbies and getting ready for the holidays! I know that when the sadness ends I will feel much better now that I only having one writing platform (Wikinut) to concentrate on.

Something told me that it was all too good to be true because Bubblews gave too much too soon. Today when I tried getting into Bubblews I saw the above message!

Will I miss the ease of blogging?

Although I enjoyed the ease and effortlessness of blogging like ducks floating on the water, I think it spoiled me and that it was actually not at all good for me as a writer!

As a blogger one could write about absolutely nothing of significance or value and their followers would comment and like! Most of the bloggers did not check for grammatical errors or spelling due to the fact that their posts were published immediately.

However this does not mean that all the blogs had no value or significance! Although some did have value, for the most part the blogs just littered up the Internet with junk!

The only reason why most of Bubblews' followers would comment was so that they would get comments in return on their blogs to make money! In fact Bubblews had a very low rate with the search engines and for the most part they were kept out of sight unless Bubblews was requested by name in the search.

Actual WRITING such as the kind we do for Wikinut is different. Our articles must have some type of significance that will enhance the research of those searching for information on the Internet to help them in their everyday lives, jobs or education. They also are held to a higher standard and their mentoring system rewards good grammatical skills, effort, talent and heart!

Now I must learn to say NO

The only reason why I started blogging for Bubblews was because one of my on line friends suggested it. If that happens again with another blogging website I will just say NO! The internet is saturated with enough blogging websites that take advantage of people and do not create useful or reliable content for research and search engine traffic. If any of my Internet buddies ask me to join another blogging website I will just say NO! Wikinut is plenty enough for me!!

What will I do now?

Since I no longer have Bubblews to distract me from what is actually important, I can use my time wisely as I learn to become a better writer here on Wikinut!

I am also planning on volunteering at the senior center playing the guitar and singing when they have their monthly meals! They loved it the last time I did it and now it is time to start memorizing my Christmas songs for them to enjoy!

After the holidays I am going to volunteer to answer phones at the “senior center” which will really help me feel so much better when it comes to missing my children.

I guess I have plenty on my plate and the more that I think about it, I am glad that I no longer have to worry about writing/blogging for Bubblews!!

At last, I am as free as a bird in a tree!!

If you want to learn how to become a good writer, why not join Wikinut! I have not as of yet found a better writing platform!

Wikinut has a very unique Mentoring system that helps their writers learn to become better writers. They also give each writer a personal touch by monitoring each article! If interested in joining Wikinut you can click on the link below!

Bubblews was a trail blazer and I made over $4500 on it. I will always remember it as a great site. It fulfilled a dream

Without sounding harsh , I have close to 2 million views on wikinut and earned $102.. Can I ever reach what Bubblews paid? No I will die before that , or wikinut will fold up.

The site certainly had its day, at one time there were more the 350,000 visitors on the site every month, trouble was it was rewarding trash as too many of its contributors posted low quality material, that barely reached 100 words and the site offered little of value to search engines like Google. I had expected its closure for quite some time.

Actually Bubblews has shut down if you look at the notice that I took a picture of and put in this article! Why would they put that notice up if they had not shut down?

Bubblews ripped off those of us in the 4th world. It didn't pay thousands of people.

But hey! you can't keep a good Scammer Down! Avi Dixit & Jason Zuccari will be back to run another rip...suckers...the line to the right!

Judy, thanks for sharing your article. I was never on Bubblews and now I'm thankful I never wrote anything for them. I've actually been on some really good sites but after Yahoo Voices and Associated Content I decided to never put my heart and soul into writing on a site again. I've written thousands of articles over the years and I have them saved except for the ones Ehow bought from me. Now I just like writing fantasy and I'm very happy with that. I've never actually written a blog so I'm not even sure where I would begin but there's only so much time in a day. I'm sending blessings to you today and always!

It is getting hard to find a good way to earn a living as a writer in this profession now that Bubblenews has closed their shop.

Thanks Judy for the heads-up

I was not there. Few try their luck setting up online writing sites. A person known to me was interested but I knew him as an out and out businessman, more in the category of of fly by night, hit and run!

Some take it as a pure business, make a pitch to find a buyer - Yahoo was supposed to have paid $100 million to Associated Content for 2 million articles @50 each. But Yahoo could not sustain it making changes along the way before eventual fold-up.

Wikinut does not pay much but it has pluses to ensure some quality. I get a platform; it is better than setting up a blog site. I recall a multi millionaire worrying whether banks would start charging fees to keep his money. He used to talk about good old days when he got nearly 20% pa! What I mean is charging for our articles!

Looking forward to reading more of yours since the "burden" is off your back! siva

I was with Bubblews and made a fair bit of money and kept my 2000 posts with them and made them into a book. Now that the money has stopped my rent has to be paid in another way somehow...

You cannot cheat for long. The assholes cannot understand this simple fact. Now they have to set up another site with a different name. Anywhere, cheating is their culture.

Hope you are well Judy. Wikinut has stopped paying now and many have become dormant. I just comment here and there now and active at MyLot which has a nice community. Hopefully, you can take a look - siva
