Are you addicted to My Space? How about My Lot?

Do you find that you spend more than an hour a day posting on My Lot? Have you met any new friends or do you do it for the money? I am getting a my lot habit going on here, and I was wondering how it's working out for everyone else.

i wouldn't say i'm addicted, i go on when i have the chance and since i'm home every day its about once a day. i come onto mylot mostly to earn some money and maybe get into a few good debates every now and then. and i use myspace to network and make money as well through making layouts. so far its payed off a bit, but i still have to market more.

Yeah, it is nice seeing that little money ticker going up, up, up! I do it for both the money and conversation. And, about the marketing, thing! That marketing thing is a major PIB. I've got online businesses too and it's a 24/7 job, just getting the word out. Are you getting your layouts out to free template sites, or using another method. I don't do layouts, but I am always so impressed by anyone that has that kind of talent. Best of luck with your business.

i don't have any on the free sites. i do overlay layouts. most don't accept it because i can't just give you the straight codes. i offer downloads which include the codes, instructions, images, and sometimes some extra stuff like video and sound files. i've 1 paid layout and i'm looking to do more just to challenge myself. i run out of ideas of what people want to see and have. if you have any suggestions i'll be happe to take them. here, take a look at my profile in you're interested. http://www.myspace.com/emarie_layouts ...hey, if i can get the word out, i'll get it out =)

I used to be interested in Myspace because I was interesting in it's CSS coding and used it as a practice. My Myspace interest was mainly a 3 min passion. Now I am not longer using it as I don't really have any uses on it and I have other stuff to do.

I swear I'm the same way. At nine pm I sat down to check my emails to see if anyone had responded to my posts, and now it's over two hours later. Weird, I know that a person could get so wrapped up in the Internet. I was working way too much last month and think that this is my form of burn out. Or, maybe I'm just resting my brain from the burn out. LOL! Either way, I'm hooked. Thanks for being part of my post. Your presence made it better! Have a good day. And, best of luck with your my lot addiction.

This is my second time posting on mylot, so I'm not addicted... yet! Myspace hasn't become an addiction for me either, however I do enjoy browsing the site daily and sadly enough, seeing that I have new messages/comments/picture comments excites me.

Hello,beautyqueen26,I have joined mylot for 3 months and i have to say i get addicted to it already,i have to log on everyday and reply to the discussions,of course i have spent more than an hour in mylot per day:P I have met a lot of good friends from different countries in mylot,money may not be the first issue i consider because the amount i earn may not make any difference to my income. I enjoy in the discussions in mylot as they are fun,although there may be some rude comments or discussions at times,i will just focus on what i like and enjoy the time when i am here. Good luck.

I'm addicted to both sites. I do spend all of my free time on these two sites everyday. I enjoy giving advice to people on here and I also like meeting new friends, so I'm doing it for both, the friends and the money.

I find myself spending more than an hour a day posting on Mylot, but this isn't everyday. Some days I decide that I'm going to reach a certain amount of posts to make a couple of cents. I've still made friends. Other days I will take a break. It also depends on my mood too. If I feel like having fun, I will just play games on the computer. If I want to go outside, I will do so. It goes the same to myspace, although I'll admit that I'm more addicted to that.

I acaully know a few people on mylot and talk to them, but other wise i just like to go and read what other people are thinking and wandering about and answereing to the best of my knowledge or if i have nothing to answere i rate the responces and discussion and move on. Mylot is perfect for people that like to know other peoples business and tell them what they think the perfect place to be a nosey person so to speek. I am also her to earn a little cash i mean who isnt. I am even though it may not amount to alot in the long run going to place all the earnings i make from anything i do on the internet towards a schooling program for medical transcriptioning. That is my new goal to be able to work from home doing medical transcriptioning. As far as myspace is concerned i was at first addicted to it just to be creative i loved working with making it look nice and doing my own layouts for it. But now that i have found the wonderful world of mylot i visit it once perday to see if there is anything new on there and go on about my business.

I spend much more time on MyLot than I do on MySpace, because the money comes in extremely handy. I wish MySpace had some kind of points system. How do they remain so popular when other sites actually pay us and/or reward us in other ways (points for example) for our content?
