Feeling Completely Frustrated With BG

Feeling Completely Frustrated With BG


Have you ever been so frustrated with something that you just wanted to scream at the top of your lungs – or gouge someone’s eyes out? I am currently in that kind of mood. This frustration wasn’t an all-day thing, but as the day wore on so did my frustrations. These feelings started to bubble even further a few minutes ago when I realized it was 10pm and I have yet to receive my pay for my article contributions to BabyGaga. They pay out on the 1st and the 16th. It is the 16th – where tf is my pay? 

I wasn’t getting much since they are being shady with publishing articles in the first place. Hence why my dad, my one sister, and my best friend quit. They had enough of this BS. I tolerate it because this is all I do. I can’t afford to not write for them. It was just enough to cover my dreaded cell phone bill that I completely forgot to pay on the 1st. Now, if I don’t receive my pay at all, I am totally screwed and my cell phone is getting shut off. I haven’t had to worry about this in a long time. It’s honestly infuriating me at the point. 

My boyfriend is going to try to get it covered for me tomorrow. But the “what if’s” and “why’s” are running amuck in my mind. What if I can’t get this paid? What if I don’t get paid? Why am I not getting paid? And so on… I am still holding out hope, but that hope expires at 11pm. Now, just 45 minutes away.

I am on a complete rant right now! So please forgive me. I can’t help but wonder if it is only me, or if it is everyone who writes for this specific website.

They have been known to make late payments, but never once this late. Don’t they understand that people rely on getting paid when they are supposed to? I guess they just don’t a rats ass since they are still making money regardless. 

I am grateful I have this contact with them, but this is just plain BS. Payroll had ONE job to do today – make sure all their writers and editors get paid. They can’t even do that right! Seriously! WTF BabyGaga. I even emailed my BG editor about this and have yet to hear anything back. 

My best friend, @jazminegonzalez87, had gone through this once before and they didn’t pay her for THREE pay cycles. That was absolutely ridiculous. 

Right now, anything that is an annoyance or nuisance to me is just adding to the blazing fire. I have written for then for over a year, and this is the first time anything like this has happened to me

20 minutes left until my hope expires!

    • Aww thank you! I was extremely delighted when I got the situation resolved. I kind of feel bad for blogging about the situation, but I was extremely frustrated 🤬 and needed to get it out.

      I truly do love blogging. How comes you stopped? (You can email whenever about the answer if you need to!) I am so grateful and thankful for the support network that comes from the amazing people who follow My Bipolar Mind.

      I got the email back from you, and I am getting ready to check the Q&A sheet! I am so thrilled that loved it! Once I got started, I had to force myself to stop because there may have been like 50 questions! Haha!

      Much Love,
      Sam 😍
