What happened to sites like "Bubblews" and "CPG Gallery?"
I remember being part of writing sites where one could write pointless blurbs and get many likes or dislikes, and money. To be honest, I never cared about the money, I was in it for the writing and the fun. There were people on there I constantly quarreled with and I actually miss some of them. What happened to these sites? Why are they not around anymore?
Bubblews went under, and literally closed the doors with no notice. Here's an article from when it happened: http://www.inquisitr.com/2569374/bubble … o-warning/
Never heard of the other site before.
Bubblews' bubble burst when it ran out of money and could no longer pay its contributors.
Never heard of CPG Gallery but if they were a site similar to Bubblews I would imagine their fate was similar as well.
I used to belong to Xanga and while I never had enough views to get paid, I enjoyed answering the relationship problems people sent in. This wasn't on my home page, but a community forum. Xanga changed it's format to being Wordpress based and I didn't follow them over. It was obvious things would not be the same. They gave us notice and I did download my paltry articles and transfer them to my Blogger page.
