Make Money with Bubblews for Doing No More Than You Would on Facebook or a Blog

EDITED 31 August 2013: Please note I have written an update to my experience with Bubblews.  Please read: The Bubblews Warning Label: Problems With Payments

I want to share here a way that I have been making extra money and that I think any ill person who is able to use their computer can also do.  I haven't been posting as frequently recently as health has been on a bit of a downer and I've also been posting (or bubbling as they call it) more often on Bubblews.  I've been writing online for a few years now and my main writing has been on Squidoo and I've made some money, but it has been tough going, especially as they made a lot of changes recently.  I was not directly affected by those changes but it made me realise that if you're going to write online, you can't put all your eggs in one basket, so to speak.

Someone recommended Bubblews and said they were making more money writing there than on any other website.  So I decided to check it out.  I was extremely sceptical about the site at first because it honestly sounds too good to be true.  Also I read some articles about how they have not received payment for their posts.

Here are the rules and Bubblews says that they have the right to remove (and not pay out) any account that partakes in the conduct listed below:

1. Submitting content that you did not write yourself. Copying content from other websites around the internet is stealing and Bubblews will never pay you for that.
2. Abusing our likes/views/comment system by partaking in exchange groups and requesting for them through other Bubblews' members.
3. Utilizing Traffic Exchange, Bots, Proxies, Virtual Private Network and other forms of IP manipulation is stealing from Bubblews.
4. Submitting posts that only contain pictures and/or containing very limited text is prohibited as this is not content our advertisers like to pay for.
5. Posting Pornographic/semi-pornographic images and/or content to Bubblews.
6. Posting LESS THAN 400 characters per post.
7. Posting material not written in English (Only exception is if you supplement your post with an English translation).
It sounded easy enough to me, so I started posting.  Straight away I realised that I got paid for everything. A visit to my article earned me $0.01, the same with a comment and the same with a 'like' (and even a 'dislike').  It doesn't sound like much, right?  Well, it pretty soon adds up.  You can only redeem the money that you have earned when you hit $25.00.  It's slow as first and it took me three and a half weeks to get to make my first $25.  But pretty soon, the more people you interact with on the site, the more visitors your posts get.  I made it to my second $25 in just one week.  
When you're able to redeem your payment, you just ask for the amount to be sent to your paypal account (I'm in the UK, so I figured this was the easiest and I didn't want to give out my bank details).  You get a confirmation within a day or two and then it takes 3-4 days for the payment to clear.  My first one cleared fine and the second is in the process of clearing as I type.
I think the best part of Bubblews is that you do not have to be an experienced writer or blogger.  Most people can easily write a status or have a rant in over 400 characters on Facebook and you do not get paid for that!  There you do.  I think it is perfect for people like us who have a chronic illness, because it allows us to write short articles and posts, be part of a community and more importantly, earn some extra money on the side.  

Check out Bubblews today and start earning money for sharing your words!

  1. Its a good posting here and site there too, Eric

  2. Thanks a ton for sharing this. I am a member too, and am wondering which is the easiest way to earn $25 / month online from bubblews. I have alread earned $1 in one month and earning there is not easy, as compared to other websites. Anyways can you kindly provide me a step by step guide to earn money from bubblews.

    1. I'm not sure what you mean by a step by step guide as I think I have more or less said it all here; write articles and then get people to visit them. The only way to do that is to interact with other people. Connect to them, and leave genuine comments on their posts. I make $25 a week and I could probably double that if I push myself. People who spam others with their posts (which is against the rules) or beg others to connect back (also against the rules) do not do well. People who genuinely read and comment on other posts do extremely well. You have to find a balance between reading and writing posts. Also use social media sites like Pinterest to get more traffic. I have written some posts helping newbies, maybe they will help you:

      A Step By Step Guide to Finding Free Images on Flickr
      The Importance of Pinterest
      How Many Posts Can I Write a Day?

      I hope they help. Trust me, Bubblews is a great opportunity - I have been writing on blogs, Squidoo and Hubpages and Bubblews pays the best and it just escalates.

      Good luck!

  3. The links you posted above are not working, but I'd like to read them.

  4. Hi! I'm so sorry you had problems with the links, but I just checked all of them and they're still working. Let me know which one's you're having problems with, and maybe I can just post the url for you. Also, I find that if you try to access Bubblews via a mobile device or in a Starbucks, the links are often blocked. I will be writing a follow up piece to this one soon.
