I have pulled back a little bit from Bubblews. I have now been a site contributor 16 days and reached payout on day 12. Four days later (3 business days) I received notification in my paypal account that I had a payment pending. I pulled back from contributing because of the way they handled a situation recently. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm kinda hoping I'll get over it.
The site is still young and while it has plenty of positive things going for it, it does have a few negatives.
The company seems to be going through some "learn as you go things" which can be pretty confusing for site contributers.
There are a lot of people who have either never been paid or have one or more redemptions pending. Yet a lot of these people are still posting. Interesting right?
Take for example Bepearsonable, a site contributer since the end of May 2013. She has 198 articles posted but here is bepearsonable's Redemption history with Bubblews. For some reason though she still loves Bubblews.
You can see that she has several unpaid redemptions. This is not an uncommon thing. Today (7/20/13) she was paid for two of the above. Which two? She doesn't know.
Bubblews is a site that is growing too fast for its own good. I love the whole idea around it but because it is growing so fast things are falling through the cracks. Communication is the biggest problem there. I really hope this site does well. Time will tell.
What do you think? Will Bubblews last?
