Why I am writing here instead of HubPages or Bubblews?

Let's get the money out of the way first.  I keep telling people I don't care about money, but nobody believes me.

At HubPages, I'd expect to make about $50.00 a month, but I wouldn't be able to write  just anything I want to write.

At Bubblews, I was pulling over $8.00 a day when I quit and I expect it would have gone higher over time.  I could write anything I wanted.

Here, I expect to make a few pennies per day - if that.  Again, I can write whatever I wish.

Here, I expect very little interaction with anyone.  Most of the comments will be from spammers and I will have to delete them.  Annoying, yes.

So why come here?

Because the money grubbing deceit and game playing by a LOT of Bubblews members angers me.  I spoke to the CEO in email and while he agreed that they should not be doing that, he says he is powerless to stop it.  I don't entirely agree (they could at least issue strong statements condemning the connection farming, the indiscriminate "Liking" and so on), but there it is.

My choice is to write there and be angry every day or write here and be happy.  I choose happy.

So, this is where you will find me babbling away to an empty room.  Well, mostly empty :-)
