Bubblews Payment Proof - Paid After 18 Days - July 2014

If you are writing on Bubblews currently, you will have noticed that redemptions are taking longer than before. I have heard that some people are waiting up to 3 weeks. Here is my email from Paypal saying Bubblews has sent payment. This is 18 days after submitting for my earnings and for the full amount that was in my bank at the time. Since redeeming I have made $38, only $12 away from cashing out again.

I know there are a few people writing reviews that Bubblews is a scam. I wanted to post my payment proofs from time to time to show that Bubblews does indeed pay. 

The site is best used if you really get to know your fellow bloggers and make friends, instead of hopping from one article to the next liking and posting random generic comments. I look forward to having time to "bubble" and catch up on my favorite writers and online buddies.

Are you making money blogging with Bubblews? Any issues with getting paid?

Submitting for Payment from Bubblews - June 2014

I've been blogging with Bubblews since March 2013 and thought it would be good to keep track of my payment requests (or redemptions as it's called in Bubble speak) here where instead of on Bubblews. My last payment was on May 2nd for $50.20. This was the first time I got the message that payments can take up to 7 days due to high volume. It was closer to 10 days, but that's ok. I did get my payment.

Submitted for Bubblews Payment 6/23/2014

So for anyone wondering, "Does Bubblews pay?" you can follow my bubblews tag or subscribe to my posts. I'll update if I get paid or not.

Letting Our Butterflies Go!

I have seen so many homeschool bloggers posts on raising butterflies with their kids, that I needed to give it a try. It seemed like a fun way to let the boys understand metamorphosis and have more appreciation for other living things. 

We ordered the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden. First you get the mesh pop up habitat you can see in the picture, then you redeem a coupon that comes in the box for 5 caterpillars to arrive by mail (which required $5 for shipping). 

The caterpillars bulk up on the supplied food, shed their skin many times, and then hang upside down on a paper disc on top of the cup. They then form their chrysalises. We then carefully removed the paper disc, cleaned up their webbing and hung the disc to the side of the mesh habitat. And waited!

And after about 7 days, butterflies emerged, subhanAllah! They had small wings at first that quickly grew as they stretched and pumped blood into their veins. We got to see the butterflies move their proboscis (straw-like tongue) in and out, that was pretty cool.

The butterflies need to be feed with sugar water sprinkled on flowers. We kept them for a few days and then it was time for them to fly!

It didn't take long for them to realize they were free. Off they went!

The boys hope to see them in the yard, inshaallah.

We had a great experience ordering this kit, getting the shipments and email reminders on time. I would recommend the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden for a great hands on project.
