I hate wasting time. I do, however like to write and communicate. I am on a quest to work from home using the internet, and I want to hear from those mylot members with lots of entries. How profitable is Mylot? Is there anyone making any kind of substantial money here? Or is it just a few cent here and there that adds up to a $10.00 check that you've totally lost interest in by the time you get it? Any and all feedback is appreciated!

It comes out to be a penny a post. Anyone looking to make a living from here is fooling themselves. That isn't what this place is about. It's a place to share, make friends, learn a few things and have fun all while you make a penny here an there for your time.

Thank you for being honest. That doesn't sound bad. What is it usually, like 1 penny per post or comment?

" Or is it just a few cent here and there that adds up to a $10.00 check that you've totally lost interest in by the time you get it?" It is only a few pennies here and there, but I have never lost interest in it by the time I get my ten dollar check. If you are just here for the money, you should just leave now, because money is menial here. Hell, it is menial work, so therefore, menial pay. Why do I stay? Because it is so much fun. I have made alot of cool friends and it is a cool place to be in your free time.

I don't think anyone will be getting rich overnight or even quickly from posting on myLot. For me, it's a fun way to make a little extra money each month. I probably will only reach payout every other month, which is a little bit disappointing, but it's also nice to have that extra spending cash when I do have it! :)

Honestly, I can make better money for the same amount of time doing my regular writing. On the other hand, this is an interesting and fun way for me to recover from those times when I have to take a few days off from writing because no one thinks that being a self-employed writer entitles you to maintain a set work schedule. The reason I have posted so much here today is that I have not had time to write for the last three days (household chores and lodge business). Tommorrow, I will be back to doing my regular writing (mostly).
