Am I Just One of the Lucky Ones or Am I Simply Following the Rules?

Although I too cannot see why some people have not been paid by Bubblews, I can also see the reasons why some people have not been paid. It is a considerably large amount of people who complain that they haven't been paid that fall into my category of "Well, I can see why you haven't been paid."

Maybe I too will one day be one of those Bubblews members who doesn't get paid and can't figure out why not, but I'm hoping that day never comes, and, honestly, I don't really think it ever will. Should that day come, that I don't get paid, I would suspect that it would be due to the site experiencing glitches around the time that I redeem my payment on Bubblews. I would contact Bubblews about it, and hope that it would get sorted out. If it didn't get sorted out, I'd probably bubble away until I reach my next redemption amount of $50 or so, and try again.

Why would I try again?

Besides loving Bubblews, and abiding by all their rules and terms of use, I see that some bubblers miss a payment, but then receive their next one. Continuing to bubble is worth it for me.

Follow the Rules!

Follow the rules, people! It's easy to do. If you can write you can read, so just do read the rules and terms of use, and do follow the rules and terms of use.

I Am Proud of Having Received All My Bubblews Payments So Far

Not having missed receiving any of my Bubblews redemptions, I am proud of having received all my Bubblews payments so far.

Why do I feel proud rather than lucky?

I follow the rules and terms of use. It's not that difficult to do.

Happy!

Easy extra income. Yay!

How Much Money Have I Made on Bubblews?

Today is 14 January 2014. I joined Bubblews on 28 July 2013 - 5 and half months ago. I have redeemed (cashed out) 21 times at an amount of mostly between $25 and $26, and since the minimum redemption amount has been lifted from $25 to $50, I have redeemed once, at about $54.

Let's call it exactly $25 and exactly $50, even though it was a bit more than that each time.

That's 21 x $25 = $525 and 1 x $50 = a total of $575 in 5 and a half months.

$575 in 5 and a half months is not a fortune, but it's certainly a handy extra income for spending time on a site, writing short posts about whatever I like, and having fun. It's easy extra income.

I am also almost half way to my next $50 redemption.

How Easy is it to Make Money on Bubblews?

It is incredibly easy to make money on Bubblews. It's extra income, at first, but could become more if you spend a lot of time on Bubblews. There are a few Bubblews members who are earning more than $400 a month on Bubblews.

Although some people may wonder how it is possible that people can easily earn extra income on Bubblews, I say why worry? Just write your short posts of at least 400 characters (about 100 words), abide by the rules and terms of use, interact with your fellow Bubblews members (read, like and comment on their posts), make new friends, have fun, and earn some extra income while doing so.

I prefer socializing on Bubblews to socializing on Facebook. It's like I get paid to socialize on Bubblews, and I don't get paid to socialize on Facebook. I have made many new friends on Bubblews, and always look forward to reading their new Bubblews posts. I like 'hanging out" on Bubblews.

Is it easy?

Are the Bubblews Rules Really That Easy to Follow?

Yes! Bubblews rules are easy to follow. Some of the main rules to look out for are:

Write posts of at least 400 characters (about 100 words);

No spamming or linking to unrelated sites;

Unique content not already published elsewhere online;

Crediting of image sources;

Proper crediting of image sources.

The proper crediting of image sources may be a tricky one for newbies (to writing sites) to understand: Even if one uses one's own photos, one should say so so that everybody reading the post knows you didn't pinch it somewhere. Also, simply crediting Google as the source of an image is not crediting an image source. That image wouldn't even be in Google search results if it was not also on a website. The website and / or photographer needs to be credited, not Google - and even then, one must be sure that one is allowed to use that photo.

What do I think of Bubblews?

5 stars for Bubblews

Why Do I Think Bubblews Will Be Around For a Long Time to Come?

Bubblews told me that they would be around for a long time to come, and I believed them when they gave me answers to a wide variety of 10 questions that I asked them in a Bubblews Interview.

I don't even mind the glitches the site sometimes has - it tells me that Bubblews is working on the site to improve it for its members - so that people just like you and me can continue enjoying the site, its members, and the extra income.

Wow!! that's almost as much as you could have earned flipping burgers part time on weekends only being paid junior wages! Well done!

Seriously - have you read the Terms of Use for the Bubblews site? It states clearly that the ownership for copyright of everything you submit to the site belongs to them. You accepted a few pennies in payment in return for your submission and they own the rights to do what they want with your work, your creativity, your art, your graphics - anything you submit. You're so generous to give the site owners access to do what they want with your hard work. Very nice of you, indeed :)

But happy bubbling to you!! That's awesome that you got paid what you're worth! Well done to you again :)

@Bianca Raven - I believe I'm worth a lot more than $575 in 6 months to many people, and even if I was worth only $575 in 6 months, how could you know this? Do you know me? It seems that you think you know me when you said "got paid what you're worth!"

I'm not sure that you read my entire hub. Did you see the part, near the blue-ish photo of my children jumping for joy that that their mother can afford to get them some things she couldn't before she joined Bubblews, where it starts off "$575 in 5 and a half months is not a fortune, but..." ?

I give much away for free in life, and if Bubblews claims ownership of my Bubblews posts in return for providing me with a site where I can make friendly new friends and socialize, and earn a little EXTRA income while I'm at it (I do earn income elsewhere too) then so be it.

Bubblews terms of use are not all that different from HubPages terms of use - yes, a little different, but not all that much.

I may even consider deleting this hub and using it on my own site rather, a bit later. It has earned me nothing since I published it here, whereas had I published it on Bubblews it would have earned me about $1 already.

Yes I am a generous person; thanks for noticing and telling me well done for that. I am proud of being generous.

No please leave it, I expected to see an a on that girl's picture...sheee...well maybe she is getting there. We sure have hung around this place long enough for O and I am pleased you told so much about bubblews; now I may really get on over and join; have been thinking about it. We do this for our pleasure also and we can give it here for no thanks or somewhere else for at least a little and maybe some joy. Thank you so much. Up and sharing. Great to hear from you again!

@Teresa Shultz - my comment was that Bubblews only view your input as being worth the amount they paid you for it! They don't value their contributors to pay them properly for their time, effort or input - especially when their Terms of Use state clearly that everything you post to the site (writing, photos, graphics, artwork) belongs to them the moment you submit it. So you're giving away a lot of rights to your efforts in exchange for what they believe you're worth instead of what you actually SHOULD be paid.

Thanks for this useful information, straight from the source! I've thought about joining Bubblews but am not sure, because I tend to go through phases of writing and not writing. If I am in a non-writing phase, I find it handy to be paid from Hubpages with no extra work needed, whereas I wouldn't be from Bubblews. So maybe it's like the difference between wage + all benefits at once (B) or wage with sick leave included (H). Voted useful ;)

Congrats Teresa for your success on Bubblews. I started there in November and missed one $25 redemption but I got paid $61.69 yesterday for second redemption . I think Bubblews is a good site and I hope for the best.

@Jackie Lynnley - thanks for your support / comment, Jackie. Hope to see you over at Bubblews. Great to hear from you again too! :)

@Bianca Raven - thanks for your thoughts

@Suzanne Day - twice during December I missed 4 days in a row on Bubblews - each time I earned nearly $4 for doing nothing (nearly $1 a day). To be clear, though, I had already done it - added 500 posts to Bubblews. It's so quick and easy to add posts there, that they add up quickly. And if one uses just a little SEO, nothing major, one can earn some passive income on Bubblews too. It (passive income) does seem to dwindle off a bit if one is not active there from time to time, but had I not been active at all on Bubblews in December, I suspect I would have still earned about $20 to $25 for December, in passive income earnings - whereas my 50 posts on HubPages earned me an income of about $0.30 passively for December - times that by 10 to get the same amount of posts I have on Bubblews and earnings may have been $3 for December on HubPages. It seems I can earn 6 to 8 times that on Bubblews, passively. Just estimating and I don't know for sure, though! :) Thanks for your comment!

@mgt28 - thanks, and so glad to hear you got paid after a missed redemption. Good luck with your future time spent on Bubblews!
