My Experience on Bubblews (Bubblews Review)
What is Bubblews?
Well, Bubblews is quite different from your everyday article writing website. It's unique and certainly interesting, and this has given rise to many genuine concerns about the legitimacy of the site.
So Bubblews is basically an article writing website, where you can write almost about anything under some general categories such as Art, Beauty, Business, Entertainment, Fashion, Food etc. Their motto is "Speak Freely. Write Your World". And like most of the content writing websites, you will get paid for number of views you get on your posts. But wait, that is not all...
Bubblews has also given us the chance to monetize our content even further. Bubblews also pays for EVERY comment you get on your post (you won't get paid for comments you make on other's posts-because let's be real, if such an option was there Bubblews would be the most spammed website on the Internet).
Bubblews doesn't stop there. They also pay us for facebook likes and other shares on social media that our posts receive. You yourself can try to get likes or shares, but the posts will naturally receive likes and shares if the community likes them.
Oh, almost forgot, Bubblews also has a rating system where registered users can 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' each post you make. I'm not really sure if this gets you paid directly, but it will certainly improve your post's visibility within the Bubblews community and on the Internet.
So this is Bubblews in a nutshell. If you want to try it out Sign Up here.
Is Bubblews Legit or Scam?
Up to now you went through the benefits of being on Bubblews and in your mind you are raising the age old question-'is it a scam?'
Well, for that question I cannot give a direct answer as well.
Bubblews is certainly an innovative system that let's us reap results maybe a pinch too much. But if it is really legit, it will be one of the most used websites in the world. Bubblews is relatively very new-being established in 2011. So they will undoubtedly have system errors, bug fixes, upgrades and many more tweaks to be done and adjusted before getting everything correct. So sometimes payments could get delayed, statistics may get delayed etc. Even HubPages have trouble updating the statistics sometimes and HubPages is a giant in the content writing world.
To the right of this article you will be able to see some statistics of Bubblews users and you should rightly be surprised. That is the earning potential of Bubblews or maybe even more. The latter image shows that there is just one post and still he had managed to earn $5.5 out of it. This is not fake statistics. Those are real statistics.
In my Bubblews Bank, I have $7.52 with 62 likes, 561 views and 29 comments on my 17 posts. This is a huge pay rate. And those 17 posts do not last longer than 200-300 words as well. So it is not as difficult to make a post on Bubblews as it is to make a hub on HubPages.
As for the question, 'Is Bubblews Scam?'-I do not really know. There are mixed comments from people. Some have spoken very highly of Bubblews and are on to their 20th-30th payout. And there are some who have struggled to get their first payment out yet. So there is no choice but to give it a try and hope for the best. But I must say that it all looks pretty positive to me. But I am an optimistic guy, so...
Bubblews system is unique and rightly so they have applied for a Patent on the system and the patent is pending. This is good news. If the patent is granted they will be able to carry on with the system without any legal issues for the foreseeable future.
Is Bubblews Worth Your Time?
Like I said before, Bubblews has very little rules and regulations over the posts we make. What they require is unique content with a mere 400 characters of content. 400 CHARACTERS-not even 400 words. Every letter you type is a character. So it is very easy to write almost about anything. Also there are no picture requirements, video requirements or any of that.
Recently I made a post about how disappointed I am with The Bling Ring movie. If you check it out ( just Google "The Bling Ring Was a Disappointment" without quotes and the first search result is my post, isn't that amazing?) and you can see that it doesn't take any effort at all to publish on Bubblews. So like putting statuses on Facebook, you can write some words on Bubblews and get paid. And if it all goes crashing down to hell, you would have only lost a little of your time.
So, do give it a try. It should be fun and rewarding. If you want Sign Up from here.

EDIT: New Update (14/12/2013)
A new update to the system has been announced by the Bubblews team. With this update Bubblews will increase their redemption limit to $50 (instead of earlier amount of $25).
According to them this will give them more time for their staff to focus on communication with the members and their issues. There have been made no changes to the earnings system, so the change will allow the Bubblews staff some breathing space and focus on other things than clearing out $25 redemptions every day, every hour.
First email from Bubblews
However I received my first ever email from Bubblews today, confirming the receive of my redemption amount of $25 which I redeemed three days back. This is my seventh redemption and the first time I got an email of such sort. So this is something positive to look for. They have started communicating with the members it seems.
IMPORTANT Update (January 2015)
Things have changed a LOT since I wrote this article in the very beginning. Bubblews was too good to last forever. It had a burst (a massive growth) after the owners went on national television and announced about Bubblews worldwide. They were not prepared for the resulting growth and the platform collapsed.
Now Bubblews is more sustainable. The site will not die the way they are operating now. There are NO FIXED earnings rates as before (Eg: $0.01 per comment or like), but the earnings are adjusted to the advertising revenue. So, naturally, the earnings have drastically dropped. But the platform is more reliable, spam free and sustainable in the long run.
Bubblews had to detain all earnings made prior to October 2014 because the numbers simply interpreted false or manipulated earnings. Simple as that. A lot of people did a variety of things to manipulate earnings. As a result, we all lost all accumulated earnings.
But the site is running smoothly now. There won't be any issues at the present rate. Bubblews lost a lot of credibility and Internet ranking after they withheld the earnings of users. But it is slowly gaining pace again. I cannot tell if it will return to it's former glory-ever. But Bubblews still is the most reliable place for micro-blogging.
