Yup. I was just over there on the old stomping grounds and there was a blue box. I've taken a screen shot and saved it for a momento. Sorry to see the old wagering about when the next blue box will drop come to an end.
I think we should still see one more before the end. They still have to pay for August before Squidoo closes up shop. I will sure miss it. Squidoo was my number one writing platform, I learned so very much there, and made so very many friends.
I didn't take a screenshot, but I was tempted. I never actually earned a lot through Squidoo. I'm inclined to think HubPages suits my writing style a lot more. Less commercial pressure, more "writing for the love of it".
What you get here is an email from HP and from PayPal. Payment is on or before the 28th of the month following the month income (or accrued income) was earned, provided the amount is over the $50 minimum.
That is what I am also worried about. I have the charity account here but not sure how it will do as the Adsense on it still has not gone through for her. I have my fingers crossed she can hopefully still receive a minimum payout each month. I am presuming that the $50.00 will be difficult to reach some months.
Who said it was the superior site? Squidoo did crow for a while, when HubPages got slapped in the first Panda and Squidoo didn't. But Squidoo did eventually get hit, and badly, and it never recovered as well as HubPages did.
I had a good payout, with plenty still in the hopper. I am not nostalgic about it. It's time to move on, forget the bitter as well as the sweet, a conviction I've found easy to embrace now that HubPages has shown itself to be such a great place to land.
I'm sorry for your loss. I used to have an internet family of sorts on a scrabble forum. Some of us even flew to meet each other in St. Louis. I spent hours with these ppl talking on our forum. We couldn't believe it when they closed it. It seems a bit silly, but it is a loss. I hope you'll all be happy here. The sting goes away.
I've been trying to transfer my stuff from Squidoo but it seems like it is having me create a new Hubpages account rather than importing it to my existing HP account. Is there a way to just bring my content over to my HP account?
I've read in several pages that folks with existing hub pages accounts will have their stuff moved over after all the others. I'm not sure how that will work. Perhaps someone could elaborate, clarify or otherwise comment on this.
No, I'm just very mellow about it. I have 250 articles to revamp by the end of the grace period and I almost can't start until the beginning of November, because I'm preparing to get a book printed.
It'll get done. If the QAP folks have to throw some of mine into Unfeatured status until I've corrected them, I don't mind. As long as they don't lock one of the transferred accounts because of the pages I haven't gotten to yet.
I'm just grateful that HP has done part of the work for me. It was so depressing, having to move articles I'd sunk so much effort into years ago, and rebuild everything on my own websites, with no guarantee they'd work out. Having a helping hand with that -- especially since I have no idea how I'd hand-code all those mythology quizzes in Wordpress -- turns it from a depressing retreat into a much-needed round of spring cleaning with an assistant doing some of the preliminary setup.
Two of my accounts have moved over, one's still over on Squidoo.
relache, it's always great to get the straight scoop when one can find contradictions posted from time to time. of course, whenever possible it never hurts to provide a link to the official answer so as to alleviate any further confusion ... glad you did.

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think...
