    Do you prefer making money on HubPages or Bubblews?

    I am in kind of a pickle right now.  I made 25 dollars in 3 days on Bubblews.  That took me 2 months so far on HubPages to make.  I know HubPages has more consistent traffic but if I can earn 2 months worth of revenue from 3 days, I will have 20 months of income by the end of the month.  I am starting to lose faith in HubPages.

    While I really enjoy HubPages I don't think I have caught the gist of how to use it properly.  I have several Hubs but I make pennies a month.  On Bubblews I make a lot but it seems to be filled with a lot less note worthy writing and I am not sure how long it's wonderful earning power is going to last.  Creating on Bubblews certainly is faster and has a higher pay off.

      400 characters is the minimum, the quality of our writing is still in our own hands.

    I'm not messing with Bubblews anymore. The earning potential on there is great, but I've been waiting for over a month for my first payment. They never responded to my message either. I have several friends who are dealing with the same thing. No reason for me to write on there anymore.

      How much did you redeem? I found that if I redeemed close to the $25 mark I got it within a few days, but when I let it mount up and redeems $70+ I am still waiting and I have successfully redeemed two later but smaller amounts no trouble

    After reading this question I have taken interest in Bubbleews. It seems scamy but I´m gonna give it a quick try.

    MountainManJake, have you received payment for your $25 dollars?

      I submitted a "redemption" yesterday.  Still nothing yet though.

      I have been a member on Bubblew since early March this year, and have sucessfully redeemed over $170 so,  in my experience it is not a scam, or if it is I am not sure how it works when it continues to pay me lol...

    I heard of Bubblews not too long ago, and I apparently (though I didn't really recall this  LOL) went and at least started to sign up in order to see if it was worth pursuing.  (I can always use a spare $20 a month for killing time on the Internet when I'm not in the mood to do something more productive online.)

    Anyway, when I saw this question I went to check out Bubblews and figured I may sign up.  I remembered why it was that a) I started to sign up there, and b) apparently didn't even finish.  I'm not an "Internet person" when it comes down to it.  I get hit in the face with the first page of a site like that and "get mean", thinking "What on Earth is all this big pile of crap-nothing?!!!!"  HubPages, at least until now, has been among the least "Internet-y" of writing-related sites.

    Up until recently it worked well (very well) for me.  Even though I write to make good/productive use of my free time, I don't do it "just for my health".

    So, ever-looking for a pleasant site where I can just kind of relax and write what I think needs/ought to be written "out there", I went again to Bubblews, thinking I'd block out the visual overload, try to get past the fact that there appears to be little but nothing-ness and pieces about earning money on the site (but maybe I just have't yet given it a fair chance).

    In theory, I wouldn't mind giving the site a chance for a week or so and seeing what might happen.  In reality, I don't know if I can stay on that site more than four minutes at a time.  (LOL)

    HP has been writing writing-focused enough, and non-Internet-y, enough for me to stay for five and a half years, using it as my way to have a good place to make productive use of my "Internet-time-killing" time.  Part of me says, "Change your ways, self; and change some of your thinking about free time online."  The other part of me says, "Stop thinking you're ever going to be able to stand doing anything AT ALL on any Internet site that looks like a big pile of blah-blah, packaged in visual overload."    (LOL)  (I keep adding the "LOL's" because I do have a sense of humor about it all.   smile  )

    Suppose I'll go back and try again maybe...    If I can stay on the site longer than four minutes without clicking away and/or killing myself, and if/when I ever start making "Big Bucks" I'll be back to write a Hub about it.    LOL  (God knows Bubblews appears to already be far too overloaded with stuff about earning on there.   smile  )  For now, the site still looks like a "big horror show" to me.   smile

      There is a lot of  interesting content, you soon find the people that are worth following, so much is written about earnings because of the rumours about it being a scam, which in my experience it is not. As for quality writing that's in our hands

    I agree that Bubblews is not a quality site, but it does pay. I recently received my first payout.

    I join only quality sites like HubPages and IndiaStudyChannel which enjoy trust of millions. Anyhow I am a free person and writing freely on the web without hesitation or fear but sometime I prefer sites with encrypted sign in facility. I have joine the Bubblews just for fun and writing. Earning is not my motive. However if dollars come by itself, I will welcome as no body will shut the door for legalized earnings.

    What type of content do they accept on bubblews? I personally have not tried it yet.

    I did join Bubblews after a friend told me about it.  I made the $25.00 payout in one month so I know it does pay.  However I have found it to be an inferior site with writing that is not high quality.  The fact that it does pay so much for basically bad writing makes me wonder how long it will last. 

    The pages are slow in loading, the site crashes on a regular basis and I just don't like using it as my writing portfolio.

    While I have not made the amount of money on Hubpages that I have made on Bubblews, I will stay with Hubpages, hopefully for a very long time.  I like the community and everything about Hubpages.

    I still have some writings on Bubblews but I do not plan on contributing there any longer.  I just don't trust the site at all.

    I just joined Bubblews yesterday, so can't really say which site I Prefer. Bubblews has created a lot of internet buzz which has prompted me to sign up there. well, I am still waiting for my first earning on Bubblews. But nonetheless I will continue with HubPages.

    It is turning out to be much easier to earn with Bubblews recently.  I redeem every 10 days or so approximately $30 each time with no problem.  This month I doubt I will get a payout from HP as my earnings have dropped significantly. I'm struggling to get $0.50 per day this last couple of weeks where before I was making over $1 and sometimes $2 per day. Writing on HubPages is becoming soul destroying.
