'I have been approached by a couples of new members about how to earn more in mylot.Honestly,i do not have any tips and my earning is actually not that high. They had also sent me a list of earning sites and invite me to join.' Have you tried different methods when replying or starting discussions?? How was it? Have you give instant comments to all replies? Have you received any links from your friends? Did you join them in order to earn more online or to satisfy your friends? 'I find out that earnings will be higher if you give comments to others' replies/comments,i reckon number of responses you receive from your discussions may not be important but whether you can have real 'discussions'is the point.When you get notification of comments from others,you should come back and give feedback. Also I notice that those members who always give instant feedback have higher ratings. I am happy my friends give me those earning sites but unfortunately i do not have time for them' Good luck to all:)

i RESPOND AND COMMENT A LOT. i MAKE DECENT MONEY FOR BEING HERE 10 HOURS OR MORE DAILY. i AM HERE TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS HAVE FUN WRITING ETC AND ALSO FOR THE cash of course. I love this place and have a blast every day I am here. I always give comments after getting responses. Not to everyone remind you but to most as I feel it shows that I really care about others and their feelings or opinions expressed on my site. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I spend most of my time replying to those who responded to my discussions. I feel guilty if I don't reply to them. Ofcourse It is good to be paid for for our discussions and responding to others. I am always looking to the changes in my earning everyday. It gives lots of satisfaction to see a slight increase each day.

To me,the money itself does not mean anything,but i am happy to see a rise in earning and i can get more satisfaction for the hard work i put here. Due to the limit of time,i may not be able to reply to everyone,but i will try to reply to them when they have good discussions.

Ya I think its only polite to try to comment back. It's like having a conversation with someone and never answering them when there talking to you.

Hi easy888. I try to earn more than the minimum so then I can get a payout for that month. I don't join the links that friends send to me, its just not my thing. I don't have much free time so when I do its mainly spent in mylot, a few paid survey sites and emails. I prefer to respond to others discussions only because I find it hard to create a discussion. When I do its usually because I did something that day and wanted to share it with everyone. If and when I do get responses I do try to get back to everyone, even if it is just a "thank you".

Hello,maddysmommy,i am just like you.I also have a couples of survey sites but i seldon qualified for the surveys since I am not in the US:P. I also like to reply more than starting discussions as i can have more interactions with different people when replying.I also like to read their profiles or blogs to understand them more. May be you can give longer comments when you are doing this next time GOod luck.

hi, easy888. I think I've just about come to the conclusion it is very hard to make good money online, so I'm just happy posting discussions and answering responses etc. and not worrying so much about the money. I just feel that it is an added bonus to earn money while just voicing your opinion that hopefully helps others! I love the varying cultures and ideas on myLot, and the friends, and to earn a little money as well is ok too.

Of course,it is very very hard to earn money online.I have to admit some people can earn good money online,but it may only be 0.1% of the people who can do it,most of the people are just like us. I have came across with few members here who can earn like 2000 USD a month,they also get proof of payment,i assume they are real proof. They may have very good methods in finding more referrals. For me,i have no ideas and time to get referrals,i am happy to be here by myself to get a bit bonus.

Yes, I have seen the 'proof' as well, and good luck to them if that is what they are really making. I have made a little money from surveys as well, and there are apparently some well paying sites, but only for US citizens! I think that I am content with making a bit of extra cash, but I like to voice my opinion, and have people respond.

True,there are always some smart people who can do something which other people cannot do,i will be interested on how they do it,but i do not care or try to imitate them,as long as i can enjoy myself,it will be fine. It is really hard to earn money by surveys,i can see many sites which charge some fees saying that they have good earning survey sites,in fact,they are nothing special but a list of sites which you can also be able to finr them by yourself,therefore,no matter how attractive they say,never pay fees to any sites for earning chances,if they are good sites,they do not need to charge any fees.

Hi,easy888! If I can,I would like to earn more online.But once I find that I have involved myself into some websites,such as Mylot.com,I will pay less attention on the money. At the beginning of the first two weeks about my Mylot.com life,I tried my best to post more comments here in order to earn more money.Later on,I found that I began to love my online life on Mylot.com so that from then on,theis website became one part of my life. I'm very glad to communicate with my online friends here.LoL.That's really great!I will stick on my Mylot life as possible as I can. Have a good day~

I try to make my earnings higher, but I mostly just do it by trying to respond to lots of discussions. I try to make quality posts too of course. I usually don't really start discussions cause I'm always afraid of repeating someone else's discussion topic or something.

You do not need to worry too much,I think it is fine to start similar discussions with other people,as long as your discussions are not copy and paste stuff,there will be no problem at all. But i still believe the main point in mylot is to reply,i reckon starting discussion cannot earn much. Good luck.

Well i joined this site for interesting discussions and meting interesting people and cultures. I do admitt that there was a time at the begining when i saw that we are paye for interesting discussions, i did try to find out how i can earn maximum pay, but that was never the main reason. I can tell you that this days when i am really busy with my studies and work, i do choose responding to my friends and only discussions that really interest me, and i do earn very little, but i really do not care, because that is not the reason that i am here. Nowdays it seem absurd to me, that people are pm'ing us for ideas on how to earn money here.

Hello,liranlgo,have not seen you for long time,i think you must have been very busy these days. I can understand why people send us messages,i do not mind to have those messages but honestly i have no surefire to make more money on mylot,i can only tell them my personal experience or observation,but i do not want to make them disappointed if they find out that the earning is so low. It seems that many new members still think they can really 'retire' by working in mylot.

I have also joined a few survey sites,I think one can really earn money from surveys if they are from the US,there are not many sites which are opened to international members or it is hard for non US members to qualified for the surveys. The ones which give you chances for drawing may not be good as i reckon the chances of winning is very low.

May be because you have came back to the discussions you replied and added comments to them,that is why you have a ten star now. I only do it after i have email notification,but sometimes i may not be able to receive them because of the glitches.Anyway,if i have time,i will try to come back to check whether my response have been commented by someone.

oh I am not so concerned about earnings and making money here..I mean, I like having some extra money but the fact is that I joined mylot because I like the idea of making new friends and improving my English.I liked the idea of being into contact with people of different countries and learning from them...moreover, there was a time when I tried making a bit of money with those paying to read sites.well in most cases I found that they were only scam and in the other cases they were either paying too slowly or the amounts were too little...all these sites were so time consuming and I simply don't have time!!! my free time is little and I like using it in a good and rationale way. so I thank people who try to teach me how to make extra money, too but I don't have time for this

Hello easy, Sure, when I first started, I did experiment here and there. But not really anymore. I am too old and tired here to do any of such things. I have reverted to my lazy self and just post discussions like how I make my pancakes since I was 6. I may not or not give instant replies to responses. It depends on whether I feel like discussing that topic then and whether I have time for that. Yes I have received links from "friends". As a general rule of thumb, I ignore all these affiliate links. If you send me such links without me asking for them first, you should be glad I have not already removed you from my friend list. And so, no, I would not join those links that are largely scams anyway. You said you found that earnings will be higher if you give comments to others' replies/comments i.e. introducing the conversation element. This is an interesting and refreshing way to look at things. I normally choose whether to reply again or not depending on the comment inside - if there is even anything further to be said. And of course, time is one important consideration. It is quite hard to find the response sometimes too.. too tedious - you spent so much time just to dig out one response.. :P

Wizard,I think most of the members will find your discussion interesting and they should like your style of posting or replying,they will like it no matter you give them instant replies or not. Timing is a important factor if you have heaps of responses,sometimes when you go to sleep,you are not able to give feedback to the replies,i always find that people like to reply to me when i am sleeping. You are right,you will not have time to build up deep conversation with every replies as it may take you the whole day to do so for your discussions.:)

I have never really paid that much attention to the earnings part of my online activities... I just try to contribute in some ways, and that may (or may not) result in some kind of income. I actually haven't made very much on myLot. When I "make money" online, it tends to be with things like eBay, where I am actually selling a product and making a profit. Sites like this one have never amounted to more than some nice "spare change" for me. I am sure there are others out there who have different/better results.

this is a good feed about earning more from ebay. there have been so many around here who are referring us to various sites which they claim to pay so much more than mylot. however, i find them not with as friendly a format as mylot have. so, i find myself stuck with mylot for good. the earnings maybe really small but, there is so much doing some mylotting each day.

I often respond to discussions from email notifications before commenting on my own discussions. This is because I feel I should respect my friends' discussions more than my own discussions. I attend to my own discussions only after I have cleared my notifications. MyLot guidelines is that we need not respond to our own discussions and hence, I do it only when I have time left after posting my responses.

The Foreign Exchange (FOREX) market is the largest financial market in the world, with a volume of about $2 trillion a day. If you compare that to the $25 billion a day volume that the New York Stock Exchange trade, you can easily see how enormous the Forex really is. It actually equates to more than three times the total amount of the stocks and futures markets combined. Forex rocks! Rorex trading is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another. Currencies are traded through a broker or dealer, and are traded in pairs; for example Euro and Dollar(EUR/USD)

I'm hear actually for both, to make freinds and earn. I like reading the disccussions I'm finding that I'm learning things I never knew. So making money, learning, and making friends. Hmm, sounds like a job. But a fun one at that. So do you get earnings when you do comments or is it just responces and discussions that you've started. Oh and how does the picture thing work?
