I am not going to get rich here. So why can't I seem to leave? I have other things I want to do but I can't go. Now what?

You are here because you made a choice to be here. Obviously those other things just aren't that important to you right now. What do you get out of being here?

I am working on trying to figure that out. Apparently I am addicted. It was a place to vent, like about cell phones and such but I think I like people I found here too.

Now you are stuck in the MyLot realm! Muah ah ah ahhh! No, I think it happens to all of us. I was addicted to Yahoo Answers for a while, too. It's better here, though - much more intimate, and the people are a lot nicer. We know we aren't going to get rich here, but we stay because it's fun. I think you are right, it is basic human interaction...simple.

I am not convinced I am going to get rich yet. I mean, you never know I guess but I don't expect it. I just told a lady that was trying raise enough cash to move home that she better start walking.

I'm in the same boat you are. I guess I just like to talk alot. LOL. But it is kinda fun to get to know people, even if only peripherally, and to share opinions. And an extra $5-10 bucks a month never hurt anyone! (I have no idea what a good monthy payout would be, but I spend more time here reading than responding, so I doubt mine would be very high!) But it is very addicting here.

Yes it is. I think I may have finally hit a plateau and it has leveled off but for a day or two I was having trouble tearing myself away. It is hard to come here without spending a significant amount of time. Too much catching up to do all the time. So you collect my little ponies eh? I collect stamps. Can't understand why I love em so much but I do know I hate it when people use those ugly basic stamps when there are so many beautiful commemoratives to choose from! If the USPS would let up a bit it would save me a lot of money. If it has a masthead I must have the entire sheet.

Mylot is an addiction. You just whant to earn more and view other discussions. If it isnt affecting your dailey life then its ok.

Heh, don't believe everything you think? Lacking self confidence? Nothing like doubting yourself. If you don't believe it then discount it. I realize it isn't serious and it is funny.

friends - fans & friends, dedication
I would think it's because of the friendly atmosphere, it's entertaining, there's interesting stuff to read, and there's human interaction. I had a purpose for coming here but since have forgotten what that was! LOL

Personally, I have the same problem you do, so don't feel lonely in your addiction! ;-)) In my case, it's because, when I add an answer, I also look at the topic on the bottom of the page and feel attracted by them, so I "have to" answer them too... And so on... Hard to shut down and to go and do something else!!

Very cute cat you have there! So soft I bet. That looks like it has very very fine hair. Yes, I like the community here and can't seem to stay away. I do have a tendency to get involved in discussions about religion that can get rather heated. It is exciting though.

Ever notice how pictures look so much better if they are added as a comment rather then a response? Big difference! (pun intended)

Well, sounds to me like you have the Same problem many others of us have... and that is Addiction, or learning something New all of the time, and meeting many wonderful people on here. I know I enjoy this site though, and it is Far from the money that keeps me here. It is the wonderful Friends I have made, and the little bit of money is just an added plus.
