BubbleWs isn't paying me so I'll hang out here
I abandoned BubbleWs on 6/27/2015 because the admins went wildly political.
There is no mechanism for bulk deletion over there. My articles persist, as far as I know. Feel free to copy them, donate them to Goodwill, or line your birdcage with them.
BubbleWs make me money, except when it doesn't.
I can and will excrete 750-800 words in order to transform this composition into a Featured Hub or whatever it's called these days.
High Quality graphics originally created will also be included herein. Read on; it's probably better than watching reruns of Big Bang Theory.
How's it going? I've missed you all. BubbleWs called my name and I went running. On that site you can make money with little or no writing skillz. I've proven that.
I've been raking in about $50 a month most of the time for most of a year. Sure, they sometimes ignore my polite requests for payment but for the most part it's all been good. Until now.
I've been due a payment since August. No response to my polite inquiries. Therefore I'm back here to enlighten all the Liberals. Quite a bit of enlightening seems to be necessary but fortunately I have the time and the keyboard and the brain cells.
What goes on over there?
You must read onward because I titled this capsule with a question. You cannot resist onwardly reading until you've gleaned an answer.
Over there at BubbleWs a 400 character article finds itself published. Compare that to a 750 word minimum on this venerable site. Sure, you can publish shorter stuff here but plan for it to languish behind lesser content written by liberals using more words. A high word count matters mostly when you write for HubPages. The trick is that Google can't tell if you write good but they can deploy software to total up your words. That's good enough for the world-dominating search engine so it's good enough for HubPages acolytes.
BubbleWs welcomes 'spun' articles and even articles copied from other articles on the same site. Shucks, you can probably publish the same article 42 times by swapping the first word and the last word or deploying a 'bot to do the job for you. Highly qualified wordsmiths coexist with software developers posing as sentient humans.
One single solitary penny accrues to your account for each page view, "Like," and comment dropped onto your publishment. Reaching $50 in pennies permits you to ask for 'redemption' and then wait for months while high-powered computers ignore you.
At this moment I am owed about $90. That won't change my life. Either way I'll finish my PhD and continue redirecting wayward liberal synapses throughout cyberspace. It's mostly the principal of the thing, you know?
Out of shape, my fingers are.
Wow. This many words would comprise, like, 50 BubbleWs articles. My phalanges ache.
It will be worth it.
Once complete, this epic Hub will stand in mute salute to all the hard work I put into it. For untold ages my letters, words, and sentences will be immortalized in digital format somewhere in The Cloud. We don't know precisely where, but a tiny data file encapsulating precisely what I'm trying to say spins madly on a high-precision journey. I doubt seriously that my articles rate storage on an SSD: any 7400 RPM motorized disk platter suffices.
I can see the finish line
Cramps in my digits will not stop me. Together you and I charge headlong into stratospheric levels of words counts destined to catapult what you are now reading into HugPages front pages.
I feel pretty relaxed about the whole thing but behind the front of my mind I secretly gape in awe at myself as words tumble from tired blistered fingertips onto the Interweb. Even &PCUnix would be proud of me but he is a personality on BubbleWs and he will probably never see this. MarkEwbie might see this. He might leave a politely encouraging comment in the comment section below. Mark's comments are like a digital pat on the head to a little child. He realizes I'm essentially an idiot but he understands that his content looks even better juxtaposed with the junk I put out.
698 words at this point.
I want to thank all of you who stuck with me. We have arrived at the end of a long journey that probably hurt you more than you even realize.
Enjoy the stunningly beautiful photographs and stay for the words. That's kind-of my motto. If you have a better motto for me, feel free to keep it to yourself unless it's complementary. If it's complementary feel free to share it with the world immediately below this capsule. You have little to lose at this point. No one will know of you actually read what I wrote or if you simply felt sorry for me.
Take this handy quiz, or not.
