Mylot disappointment

Australia
June 21, 2007 11:19pm CST
When i first jumped onto Mylot, i thought that this might just be the thing that would bring joy, wonder, and give me the freedom of speech that i've always craved for and wanted. Plus, there was always the added incentive for that extra cash. Now, 2 and a half days in, i'm left here, with just a measly $0.61 to my account, and am really starting to wonder if it is all worth it. I'm not one to spam my friends and tell them to sign-up, but it seems that just posting doesn't quite drive the traffic (and income levels for that matter). $0.61 for about 4 hours worth of work? If you were in any other job, that would be a rip off. I'm disappointed.

Well this isn't a "job" so it's mostly for fun. Meet people, learn different countries cultures etc. Share your feelings with others, ask questions or for help and get some help also are the reasons I am here. The money is okay if you go at it harder actually. I average about $40 a month and don't have any referrals under me. So it's just hard work but worth it to me as I love the people I've gotten to know here and loved being able to dshare my life and life experiences with others. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That's pretty good considering you don't have any referrals. Yeah - i can see where you're coming from, but it feels that people post just about anything without any real substance, and yet neglect the topics that really matter, or could be interesting. But i guess it's human nature for us to change our interests in a heartbeat. Thanks for the well wishes.

My friend it pays to participate in mylot. But what's free? I think we are free to enjoy. Now I have enjoyed mylot so much that I did not expected my earnings to reach upto $12 now. Don't get disappointed. There are alot of things to be happy about specially in mylot. All you need to do is to explore and participate more! The secret to earning more is to participate more. Be exposed and invite everyone without exception. To get more participants try posting your discussions in: 1. Life 2. Mylot 3. Poeople 4. Love 5. Philippines I hope this will make you more happier now, just like me! God bless!
