Do you have goals for yourself each time you sign on to myLot? Are they based on earnings or keeping in touch with friends? What are your goals and how did you decide on them? Myself, I don't have any real goals yet?

ha ha makingpots. I do have goals, I like to start three discussions a day and look through the ones I started, but that crazy little thing called life sometimes intervenes. If you read the discussions by other members about the catastrophes which visit themselves upon my home, you will get a general idea why I do not always meet my goal. I do see some Mylotters say they want to make 100 posts a day, and I say good on them, but I don't think I could make a lot of interesting posts a day. The exception was when I went for a day at the seaside, I got a lot of ideas then and I have only put half of them on so far. As far as keeping in touch with friends is concerned, that is GREAT, however, gradually all my Mylot friends are becoming personal friends, so there is not escape, if I don't appear on Mylot they come a-looking for me lol. I think if you set yourself the goal to enjoy Mylot everything else will fall into place :-)

My only goals during my active days was to reach 30 posts(responding), start a post of my own once a day or 3 to 4 times a week and to have atleast a best response under my name, but it kinda changed now. I'm not that active here anymore, and was sort of "under the weather" lately. I try to my best to get back on track right now, and I hope that I do make a fast recovery. But I still help others here, newbies or old members, especially when they ask anything about mylot and it's policies..

I am sorry to hear you are under the weather. I hope you are well soon. You have admirable and realistic goals. Thanks for sharing them.

I don't think I have any goals as such - the money is a nice bonus when you get it but my main priority is keeping in touch with my friends here on mylot and making sure they are ok!

Sure I set goals. I try to do at least 100 posts a day, but lately I havent been able to keep that up as my husband is away. I also am shooting for at least $50 a month in earnings. Right now I am only at $32.41 and have to meet my goal of $50 by April 30th so i'm not sure if that's going to happen or not, but I am hoping to get close. I dont keep track of the time I spend here though, I just log on periodically throughout the day when I have some free moments and nothing else to do.

$50 a month is a great goal. Wow, 100 posts a day. I guess I should set some great goals for myself like you and I might be able to do that more easily. I think the $32.41 you have already is admirable. Thanks for the response.

I haven't set any goals yet. I am still working full time and have to post while I'm at work. Once I'm home (in a few weeks!) I hope to set goals of 100+ posts a day. I'm hoping my earnings can be my "momma's mad money" for going out and getting craft supplies! I also hope to start at least 1-2 new discussions a day (except Sunday) and make at least 2 new friends a week!

Good luck with 100+ posts. That sounds like so much to me, but many people have that as a goal. I have tried it one day and felt like I was at the computer all day. I love your 2 new friends a week goal! You will get that, no problem. I enjoy reading your posts.

I did set myself a goal for my first week. It was a simple goal to make sure I posted over 100 posts and try and get over the dollar. I managed to do that quite easily, in fact I almost tripled the money part. Half way through the week I set a new one which was to post more interestingly. I think I will keep my goals reachable and if I can do that for a month then I will increase them slightly. I will also make a goal about the number of posts I will start compared to the number of posts I will join in.

I do set goals for myLot. I setup goals like for a day, I need to have at least 10posts. Why? Because if I don't do that, then I won't have time to do other things. I'd just be here inforont of my pc typing the WHOLE day.

As of this time, I don't set goals, Im still learning the ways here in mylot, also I dont like to respond to discussions that do not have quality content, maybe that's the reason why I could not reach even 20 post a day. thanks.

Well, then let me say thank you for responding to this one. I will take that as a compliment. I completely relate to feeling you are still learning. I have only recently made the 500 mark and as you see I am just now thinking of setting goals.

I see alot of people have goals to do 100 posts in one day. Gosh that seems like alot. Mine is 50 a day and yesterday was the first time I was able to do that. Is it even possible to do 100 quality posts a day everyday. I can see maybe every once in awhile, but everyday.

Yes, I have goals for each of my activities. With myLot, my first goal here is to make some remarkable ranking, the second is to find new people, new friends and new opportunities. And it's nice to meet people like you makingpots :)
