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?

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.

Just curious. I did meet someone who used to make a living writing on Squidoo before they made some changes. I know some people on Bubblews who live in some "third world" countries that make enough on there to survive as well. It seems reasonable to me that there are at least a few...
