Loving the Earnings at WebAnswers and Bubblews

Thankfully the WebAnswers glitch was fixed. Whew! It was down for 4 days with no ads and I was quite sad. But I kept popping in over there and answering questions and I am glad I did. It has been fixed and was down for only 4 days. The first few days it was back on I was making mega bucks and was so happy. Because of WebAnswers, I will now be getting a check from Google Adsense at the end of September. I have been trying to earn enough to reach my $100 payout since my last payout in July of 2012, but between my 2 blogs and HubPages, the earnings were very slow to grow. Thanks to WebAnswers, I have actually earned enough for a check. Yay!...I was so annoyed with the lack of available titles for me on Textbroker that I haven't even been on there for awhile. I'm too busy on WebAnswers and Bubblews earning money in a way I really enjoy. And I am earning money on both. While WebAnswers requires well thought out answers to questions posed on the website using at least 100 words, Bubblews accepts postings of a minimum of 400 characters which is wonderful. Much easier than writing a full fledged, detailed hub,I can get smaller articles written and published much more quickly on Bubblews. So those 2 sites are where I spend most of my time lately. And I am earning money at both. Of course I will never give up HubPages. It's my online first love so I am there for the duration. But branching out also has its advantages too!

WebAnswers Glitch

If any of you are members of WebAnswers, then you are in the same boat as I am in this, the 4th day of the disappointing no ads glitch that WebAnswers is experiencing. Most people don't really know what's going on. Apparently at this point though it looks like Google Adsense has pulled all ads due to a break in the AdSense rules by WebAnsers. People on there are saying that they get messages from the administration that ads will be back on soon, but it looks like it is going to take awhile. I only hope it comes back. I was doing so well on there financially. And I really had fun answering as well as asking questions. Oh well, I will continue to be optimistic for the future. At least I have Bubblews to concentrate on now. Just another hiccup on my road to writing full time!

I am Now a Bubblews Member!

After giving it much thought and research, I have decided to join Bubblews. I have done a lot of research about it and wasn't sure about joining because a lot of members say they didn't get paid. Apparently, they broke the rules and didn't get paid, but no one from Bubblews will tell them the rules that they broke. But it's so easy to join and earn money I couldn't not give it a chance. They only require that you have a minimum of 400 characters in your posts...yes that does say characters my friends, not WORDS...400 characters! Way too cool. I finally decided to bite the bullet and jump in when a very sweet lady from HubPages (Victoria Lynn) wrote a hub about Bubblews explaining it in detail and how she was earning money quite quickly. I looked at the list of rules and it seems quite easy to not break any. Some of them I wouldn't even know how to do because I am not all that great at adding links and such. So that won't be a problem for me. I wrote one Bubble last night before going to bed. When I woke up this morning I had already earned over $1.00. Hmmm, that seemed pretty easy. Some people are reaching payout in their very first week, although they must be writing an awful lot. Some have gotten paid, and some haven't. One of the best things about Bubblews is that you only need to earn $25 before getting paid. That's pretty cool, and a lot quicker than the $50 payout required for HubPages, and the $100 payout needed for Google Adsense. But it's not as quick as the $10 payout required for TextBroker. They are all so different but it's quite fun learning how to write for each these different types of sites. It's all a learning experience, I will certainly say that! I will make sure to report back when I reach payout and will let you know if I get paid. I am still extremely happy with my results from WebAsnwers. That site ranks right up there with HubPages for me now, but is actually earning me more money in my second month there than I am earning with HubPages. The traffic and my earnings have slowed WAY down at HubPages this Summer. I hope it picks up in the Fall. Happy writing to you all!

Addicted to Webanswers!!!

I can't believe how addicted to WebAnswers I have become. I can't help it. It's the easiest way of earning money online that I have found since January, 2012 when I first started writing online for HubPages. I still love Hub[ages but I am earning more money on WebAnswers, with less work! It seems that the work available to me on Textbroker has really dried up. Most days when I have gone on the Textbroker website this week, there is absolutely nothing available to me at my level. I have never seen that before. In a way, that lack of work has forced me to WebAnswers because I can always find questions to answer there, and it is less time consuming, even when I write very detailed answers. Plus, there's no time limit at WebAnswers so it's not like on Textbroker where you accept a job and have only 24 hours to complete it. So, this week, even though I had a goal of finding 3 articles to write on Textbroker, I am okay with no0t reaching that goal ( there wasn't anything available) because I have made up for it on WebAnswers. My goal on WebAnswers is to answer 6 questions a day from Monday through Friday, and then whatever I can do on weekends is a bonus. When I go back to substitute teaching in the Fall, that will switch around and I will be answering most of my questions on WebAnswers on the weekend, and just squeezing in an answer or two a night as I can. I do wonder how that will affect my earnings there, but time will tell on that. I am also in the middle of a 30 hubs in 30 Days Challenge on HubPages, but am currently behind on that. I am trying not to get discouraged with HubPages because I am still making money there, but last summer, with a lot less hubs, I was earning twice as much as I am now earning there. I know, I know...you have to be in it for the long haul at HubPages but it can get discouraging when I am trying to write full time and only see dribs and drabs in earnings coming in from that site. At least it's coming in so I guess I shouldn't complain! If you are interested in checking out WebAnswers, the link to find it is here: http://www.webanswers.com/_5dkqa9eg
