I stumbled upon this website in December 2013, while doing Google searches for ways to make extra money online. It is a revenue sharing website and social blogging platform that allows people to express their thoughts and ideas on just about any topic (within their policy agreement). Bubblews is open to people in the United States and all over the world.
What are some of The Pros of Using Bubblews?
It has a very user-friendly interface. You aren’t required to learn any HTML coding or be a professional writer to make money there. You can write about almost anything that comes to mind, and make money off it. The website design is very clean and uncluttered. Most of the other “Bubblers” or people that participate on Bubblews, are cordial and will make helpful suggestions to other users.
Bubblews is a revenue sharing website, meaning that writers are paid some of the advertising revenue generated from Bubblews. Members are credited a penny for each unique page view to their posts. You are credited a penny whenever someone “likes” a comment or post that you wrote. You are credited when someone shares one of your posts, too. Members are permitted to make up to 10 posts per day.
Each post must contain a minimum of 400 characters (not words). You could easily come up with something to write about as there are no assignments, and the webmasters don’t tell anyone what to post. Their rules appear fairly straightforward and simple to follow.
Members can redeem earnings once “The Bank” reaches $50. The earnings can be redeemed by e-check or PayPal. I takes about 72 hours to receive an e-mail notification from them that your e-check is on the way. After that, it takes another 3-5 business days for the e-check to clear in a PayPal account.
It seems that the more posts that you make, the more page views and earnings you make. Also, the more “Connections” and interactions you make there, the greater your earnings.
The average member making posts occasionally, will make a few pennies or dollars here and there. Nothing to get excited about. There are quite a few members who claim to make several hundred dollars per month (or more). These are very active members, with thousands of connections on Bubblews. You need to put in a lot of work and remain active in order to reach regular payout thresholds.
What are Some of The Cons of using Bubblews?
Bubblews is glitchy at times. On many occasions, I have attempted to log on and got a “504 error” or some other message that the website was offline. You can end up wasting time browsing through the “Notifications Page”. For example, I am not very fond of the so-and-so ‘commented on your comment” notification. This notification appears each time that someone comments on a post that you left a comment on. It is not very clear whether any person even commented on a comment that you made.
Also, there is no control over who is allowed to leave comments on your posts. In other words, you can’t moderate your posts. So, anyone can leave offensive remarks on your post and you can’t remove them yourself. However, you could make a complaint to the staff at Bubblews to have spam and offensive comments removed by sending an e-mail and clicking on the “Flag this” button. It is rare for people to harass others there, as it is against their policy and could result in account removal.
There is no editorial oversight on Bubblews. So, anything that you write can be submitted instantly. Although there are members who submit very engaging and informative posts, many of the people writing posts there tend to submit posts which are very dull and uninteresting. Others submit posts filled with spelling, grammar and syntax errors.
Another thing is that some of the writers there have complained that either their payments were delayed or that they did not receive some of their payouts. It is possible that some of these people violated Bubblews terms of service agreement in some way. Several others whom have run into this issue say that they followed all of the rules to the letter, but still had the problem. Some people complain that their accounts were deleted for no apparent reason.
I have never had these issues and most of the people who have been using the website for a number of months haven’t had any of those issues, either. So far, I have been able to cash out once for a little over $50. I will continue to make posts there and participate unless I start to have the same problems.
Some people “connect” with other members in the hopes that the other members will connect back and start reading their posts. Many of them have no intention of reading your posts. It can be annoying when you catch on to this tactic. I usually stick to reading the posts of members who submit educational or interesting content.
Overall, I really do like Bubblews and I recommend it as a way to earn a few dollars here and there, while having a little fun. But, remember not to put all your eggs in one basket. Join today! www.bubblews.com
