Have you asked this question above and wondered if you should do it? If you have never heard about it, then read this Bubblews review below before you jump over there and get started. You may not want to bubble after reading this review, but then you may decide to give it a try. I decided to write down some of my thoughts and observations as a member of Bubblews.com. Please feel free to comment or ask questions at the end of this post.
What is Bubblews?
Basically in a nutshell, it is an article writing site that shares their revenue with their members. It is a simpler version of other sites you may have heard of… or looked at like squidoo or hubpages. The difference is all you have to do on bubblews is contribute an article with at least 400 characters. That is characters..NOT WORDS. You have the option to add a picture or a few pictures, but that is it. You don’t have to choose modules and meet some crazy minimum content requirements like currently required by squidoo.
What is the cost to join?
It is FREE to join. I have not seen any plans to ever require payment to have an account. There is currently no option to upgrade to any kind of premium account. There are probably millions of accounts set up already. I am guessing most accounts are inactive. It just takes an email address, a few minutes to fill out the sign-up form and you are ready to go. It is highly recommended to have a paypal account so you can get paid, but it is not required. There is a referral program that pays you to refer members. I think if you follow this link, you will get $1 and I will get maybe $0.20.. The referral varies. I am not that concerned about the 20 cents for the referral. Of course I will take it if it happens.
How do you make money at Bubblews?
You earn for every view, like and comment that your posts receive. There are counters shown that everyone can see, so you can get an idea of what people are earning simply by looking at those counters. Click on the image to the right if you want to see how this post is currently doing. At the time of the screen grab, the lifetime earnings of this post is $9.72. You have to reach $50 with all of your posts combined before you can request the payment. If you had 6 posts like this one in the example, you would have over $58 and have enough to get paid. This can happen fast or take some time, it depends on how much time you put in to your account. You have to be active to reach the $50 minimum.
On a site like facebook, you are highly encouraged to only connect and become friends with people you know. All kinds of security warnings have surfaced with facebook. The things you share, like pictures and status updates, are held and displayed based on a multitude of privacy settings. There are no privacy settings at Bubblews and from what I can tell, there is nothing to be concerned about with the connections you make at the website. I recommend connecting with everyone you can at Bubblews that appears to be active. You will see the highest earners have the most connections. There is nothing in place to discourage seeking out connections to help you get more exposure for your post contributions.
Have you been told that Bubblews is a Scam?
There are a lot of negative reviews on the Internet about Bubblews. I can tell you in nearly every case, these articles exist on websites that profit the writer in some way. Either they are paid by advertisers on the page or have some kind of affiliate product link they are pushing. Most of the people complaining broke the rules in some way and did not get paid. I will venture to say that many of these bad reviews did not even give the site a try, they saw an opportunity to slam it and get paid by people that are looking for the negativity. I have never been denied a payment that I earned following the rules.
Is Bubblews for you?
I can write pretty fast and the amount of time I spent there was worth it to me. This question is for you to answer. Making a few pennies for posting an article and sharing it may be exciting or it may be what you consider a waste of time. If you have never had any success with making money from something online, I say give this a try and see if it works for you. If you are paying for services online, this may be a way for you to earn enough to pay the hosting fees of other sites that you are using to build a bigger business. I joined the site and tested it for this very reason. I wanted to be able to recommend a way for people to make at east $50 a month. I was able to do this for 2 straight months last year. I spent more time doing it than I wanted to spend, but I proved it could be done. I now spend a little time in the morning before i get to work on other projects. It is not a full time thing for me, but some do make quite a bit of money over at the site.

Affiliate Marketing Guides
If you came to this page looking for information about bubblews, then you are obviously interested in making money outside of your current job. You may be looking for tips on how to use the Internet to make money. I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for over 18 months. WA is a member community that helps people start and get the most out of online businesses. You can learn to build a website that creates income. This wealthy affiliate starter account is free. Think of it as a test drive to see what the site is all about. You are not required to upgrade and can keep the free websites you create in the initial training course. You will be offered a chance to upgrade to a premium account and get more from the membership. Members at WA have helped me tremendously.
I feel that the monthly membership fee is a SUPER DEAL, but some may think it is a lot of money. The annual membership is even a better deal and that is what I am doing. It took me several months before I was ready to upgrade to Annual Membership. I think most people are covering their membership fee with new revenue in 3 to 6 months or they leave the site and pursue other things. It is not a GET RICH QUICK SCHEME. I know some that have started online businesses that replace their J-O-B salary.. allowing them to do what they want.. where they want to do it… when they want to do it. Wealthy Affiliate works.

From some of the negative reviews I’ve read, some people claim they got paid once or twice only to find they no longer had access to their accounts thereby making it impossible to request the money they earned.
Can I ask how long you have been involved with Bubblews?
Joined in May 2013. I have never been denied a payment. They have issues with infrastructure for sure causing problems with the site and making a lot of people frustrated. I do know if you write a negative bubble, you might as well close your account. You will probably never get paid by Bubblews for complaining. I don’t blame them for doing this.. It is their site and they make the rules. It would be different if they required payment. It is free and they are providing something that other social media websites are not.
Thanks for the Bubblews review and information, Bo. It looks like a viable avenue for putting some money in my pocket. I’m going to give it a whirl. 🙂
