The Advertisement of mylot says that "mylot is addicive".I see even newbies like shane and her4eversmart have reached 500 plus posts in no time whereas i even after 3 months is struggling to reach there. My job and other priorities take most of my time. What makes people addicted to mylot? Does anyone have a clue?

Yes,I think mylot is really addictive as once I sit on mylot then I dont feel closing my computer at all.Its makes me sit on mylot for whole day without getting bored.I like mylot very much as it pay its users just for starting a discussion and responding to discussion which our friends have started.We can also make new friends here at mylot.In this community we share our feeling with each other and they try to help us.

Mylot pays - Mylot pays it users in dollars.

I think mylot is rather addictive. My first month here I had well over 500 posts, I think I had at least double that actually. I think the prospect of being able to post what's on your mind, make friends and get paid really is a nice motivator for people. Money really does get people to do a lot of things.

I believe that what makes myLot addicting is the interaction that we gain from people all over the world...we are like young children whose minds are like a sponge...in that...we are soaking up the blending of cultures here....we are making new friends and learning about them...our similarities and our differences and learning to accept each other as we are... When I first began 4 months ago....I, too struggled...keeping an ever watchful eye on the numbers of posts that I had made...finding each increase in numbers as a part of me taken away almost...since I poured so much of me into each resonse..... I still try to put alot of thought into my responses...BUT I no longer look at he numbers...when I stopped watching it...then it seems like the number increased so quickly...even now, I am over 1400 posts and find that hard to believe...but I know it is true....

Mylot is indeed addictive. The beauty of being here is you earn while you learn besides having a lot of friends worldwide.

I think, mylot gives us a platform to vent our feelings and experiences and we get instant reactions from our friends here...which keeps us going. And the dear, sweet and kind friends like you...makes us (me) addicted here on mylot. Deepak

Dear lovelydame3000 You know what .. I have the same question in my mind specially for these two users -- shane and her4eversmart .. not only these two .. but there are many many active users .. they used to start unlimited number of discussions and respond to many discussions in a day .. I have noticed all of their discussions in -- today's top discussion list.. I don't know how come .. many of them are new but they are soo active that they simply beat the old ones .. and they really know what is in .. in mylot and what is out .. all their discussions are quality discussions .. I am really surprised to see that they are our seniors now in no time... Hats off to these valuable members of mylot .. Yes no doubt "mylot is addictive"

I think that is the fact that people want to make more and more money everyday so the stay on mylot all day!

I don't think even a person working on mylot nonstop can earn more than 50$ a month. I don't even give a second thought to spend that much money when i go to mall or when i am with friends which is a regular occurance. So what i may earn from mylot does not motivate me at all.

Actually, you are busy in your regular activities; I also think that is ok! Myloy is more addictive for those who has a lot of time as lesire or free..!! It is sufficient that still you provide time on here in mylot after completing you all task soundly. That is great I think so far.. No need to be you more addictive from now!!

It seems to be a rat race that we get caught up in, kinda like gambling. We just want a few more points, and a few more. It's more so in the beginning, not as much after you have been here a long time.

I'm definitely addicted! I seldom post topics, but I love to add my two cents to other people's posts! LOL! It's going to take me forever to even reach a payout, but I no longer care about that. For me, it's all about passing on information (and opinions) that might help someone else. I am finding myself being more careful about what posts I respond to, though. Even if it's posted by a friend, I only have a limited amount of time to send here -- and I do feel guilty a lot of times because I feel I should be trying to earn more money than I can ever make here -- even if I posted 100 topics a day! But I'm hooked!! There are so many interesting people here!
