Are you a curious person - is that why you're here on mylot - do you like to know how people think - what they're opinions are - or do you like the connection - or is all about the money?

I think Im curious, my husband would say Im nosey! lol Its def not about the money, but it does help. I do like connections I make between people that I feel are on the same page with me. I do like the opinions that differ from mine, at times it gives me something to think about. Possibly that Im being a bit narrow minded about it all, or it just simply proves that Im right! lol *wink* Bay Lay Gray xx

I'm curious too - after al curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought him back. I like when opinions differ from mine. Sometimes it just cements my own, and sometimes, what is said resonates, and I may change my opinion or my perspective

I notice there is no "please donate" or "do not give me the money, I just want to make friends" button on the earnings page. You can request myLot to put those buttons on if you are rather ashamed that people might be here for the money and I do not think they have to explain why. Most of us are here for numerous reasons and the money is one of them. Many of us use the money here for necessities, is that a sin? I love to write, and if I get paid for it, so much the better. My reasons here are equal, writing, the money, love of discussions, finding out opinions, talking to many that I would not normally meet in my daily life, namely because I am not married to a millionaire and I do not have a rich uncle. I suppose if you look at the posts and see if any of them are silly or require one sentence answers, and if you see the same ones keep posting hundreds of posts of no relevance, you can see for yourself.

You sound a little defensive here suspenseful - relax, those who want to make money - I have no problem with! I'm glad you enjoy all of the aspects of mylot - me too! As usual though, I have to point out, you gave a wonderfully detailed and clear answer. I didn't know your love of writing before, but you know what - its very clear that you do. Was writing an interest for you when you were in school too?

I am curious, not nosy. If I ask something and the person says it is none of my business,then I don't pry.But I am curious about my distant cousins from all over the world. so being here on My Lot is great.

First time I found this site by coincidence as I was looking for some extra money for myself (I'm unemployed now and dunno when I can go back to work), so I didn't know what to expect. It took a few days before I could get the hang of this site...but then I find out that it's a VERY interesting site to share thoughts and ideas. ;-D Since I'm a shy person and I don't like socializing too much with strangers, it's an opportunity for me to interact with other people and to ask for their opinions. Plus it wouldn't hurt to get some money while doing all that. So at first it was all about the money, but then it changes to sharing and connecting with others and then the money becomes the extra. ;-D

I like the connection. I am a real people person, so I love talking to people even if it is online. Plus sometimes I am curious about what other people think. The money is just a bonus.

Yes,i am a very curious person,in fact i can easily tell if that person is telling the truth or not,but that is not always the case,sometimes i'm wrong too.You hit it right for me,i like to know what people think,especially in politics here in my country or in the U.S.A.About the money,yes too,but it is only secondary.

Yes, I think, I am a 'curious' person in all fairness. I love interacting with ppl and I have made some really good friends here without whom I cannot do without. Material has never been the driving reason for logging in to myLot. However, it's an incentive that makes me feel great. I am curious as to different culture, region, variery in outlook but not that eager to know about personal who's who or how. I mean not unless he/she is eager in sharing it with me. I believe in personal space and privacy and would not encroach in it unless asked for. Thanks.

Well I'm basically I'm here for the money but also the knowledge. With all the money making programs online its impossible to find and weed out all the bad ones and the one's that pay but here so many people have tried so many things and they are all eager to share with everyone saving a lot of people a lot of time and money avoiding sites they might have already tried that haven't payed. Other then that in life in general I'm a very curious type of person.
