Whats the first thing you do when you come to this site? Do you check your earnings, your referrals, your responses, your star ratings? Do you go straight to discussions to start leaving comments or do you start posting discussions for others to answer? Is mylot the first site you begin your day with?

I do things the long way round. I look at my email browser to see if I have been notified about any responses to discussions that I've started. Then I use that as a link into MyLot and read and reply to the comment. Once that's done the catch up with discussions with no replies to se what's there. I am useless at navigating around MyLot, but I guess that's half the fun. I will spend some time checking my unresolved discussions and am always amazed by how many there are. I am appalling at identifying a best response, but I'm trying to do better. But E mails followed by MyLot are are always where I start my day's computer use, and where I finish the day too. By the way, I hope that the interview went/goes well.

Thank you so much for remembering my interview. Thats awesome that you would remember. Its at noon today. I'm horrible at marking a best response too, in fact, I think most of my discussions are unresolved.

You'll be fine. Just do your best and try to remember that they want you to succeed as much as you want to show what you can do.

I go check my email first, then there is mylot in my emial so look at the discussions then come here to respond to whatever I feel I can respond to or have time to respond to. Some days I just have to leave it.

The moment I sign in to myLot, I usually reply to those who responded to the discussion I have started. After which, I reply to the discussions my friends have started and from there anything goes. I will look around for any good discussion to reply to or start up a discussion that might be interesting.

Sometimes it seems to take a long time to respond to comments people have left when you are offline, so I kind of skip back and forth between responding to comments and looking for new discussions.

If I log in after earnings are updated, I check on my earnings first. Then I start going over discussions I have started if there are any new responses that I got. I would then rate those that deserve a "+" rating. After that, I go over the discussions my friends started and respond to them if I have something to say or share. Whether I respond or not, for as long as the topic is interesting, I rate it "+". Well, if I still have enough time to spare and have good ideas in mind, I start my own discussions. If I log in before earnings are updated, I just go through the same process except that of checking on my earnings. myLot is not really the first site that I open immediately upon going online.

I don't know why I keep forgetting to rate my discussions. Maybe today I should spend sometime going back and doing that. Thanks for the prod.

The first think I check is my earnings to see what I made for the previous day. Then I check the homepage for discussions I might like to respond to then I go to the discussions my friends started section and respond there.

Before I log in, I always check my profile first. Then the discussions I made, the one's I responded to and my latest BR's. Also, I check the number of people who viewd my profile and see if there are new comments. After doing all of it, I'll log and respond/comment on the one's I received on my posts then go back to those who also commented on my responses and rate. Well, that's sums up everything I do here. I consider them all as my "first" priorities when logging on here, as a daily routine..

Isn't it funny how we all develop a routine in the way that we answer discussions, post and all of that?

I never thought of it as a routine or that I should consider it doing a routine here, but the flow of information are just too tempting for me that's why I can't avoid disappointing other members here!LoL And since I don't want to disappoint people, I make sure that I'd get to share them what I know and how I do it..

Hello kbourgerie, Yes, mylot is the first site I open when I turn on my computer. when opening the page, I first read the overview page, where I can say the discussions which receive latest comments and the discussions my friend started. I also look at my earnings, if there is a change, because sometimes it goes up by one or two cents after it is updated. After reading the overview page, I open 4 to 5 page of mylot site and open them on different section. I allocate one for the discussions I started, while the rest will vary but in most cases, it is all about discussions my friends started, new discussions, recent discussions, top discussions, and discussions I've responded too. I do check my star after I have post at least one response or discussion. :-)

Thats interesting that you have more than one window open at a time to run back and forth. What did you mean when you said sometimes your earning go up after they have been updated?

Here, earnings update to take place at 10:00pm. And I usually wait for it everyday before I go to sleep. I always remember how much cents was added to my previous earnings. What is my current earnings. There are sometimes, when I check again my earnings, there is an increase of 1 or 2 cents. I do check on my earnings and find out where I got additional cents and find out on my previous earnings, they add a cents and sometimes 2 cents. That is why, I always keep track of it.

When I open my browser, I always set a page to myLot, but the first thing I check is whether I have any friend requests and any messages waiting. After that, I move on to discussions. I don't pay much attention to earnings right now since it's all small, but I will start here pretty soon.

I'll tell you what, the earnings add up pretty quickly. A few cents here and a few cents there, next thing you know, you are at payout.

Well sweety when I switch my computer on I read through my emails and only then do I start responding to discussions - I reply through email notifications and I try to answer any responses to my posts first! Only when and ifI get my inbox cleared do I then try to find new discussions to answer - unfortunately that doesn't happen too often! xxx

You'd be surprised. Even on days when I feel like I haven't done much, I usually make more than I expected.

The first thing I do is go to new responses through my email account rather than here on the site and respond back, then I will check to see if any pending friends requests and check out their profile to approve and then I will look and discussions my frineds have started then answer any I can. If I have something I feel I can start a discussion on then I will do that next, but usually spend most of the time answering others discussions. Ellie :D

I don't really go through my new responses in my email, but I do go through the notifications of what other people have posted as discussions and take those one at a time.

When I first enter the site, I check out the "discussions from your interests" section, and then the earnings. myLot is not the first site I enter every day, I have several online games I need to see first.

I never thought about looking at the discussions from my interests. LOL. I just look for discussions with no response.

I usually start by seeing who responded to my discussions so I can reply to them. Then I check to see what my friends have posted and I check posts that interest me. Sometimes I find good friends through posts that I like. It helps me to meet people with similiar interest as mine. I also like to meet people with different interest through the post. As they say, opposites attract.

The first thing is to read topic and discussion from friends in mylot. The secend is to write some new discussion, some jokes, to install pictures if I have some. Mylot is not the first site to begin my day but is the only site for me to connect with friends all ower the world. It is interesting, it's nice I have some very good friends here and hope to have more. Thank you for this topic.

I usually answer my friends discussions via email first before I log into mylot. Then I check my earnings and then find more discussions to answer if I have time. Now that we get the mylot digest via email, I try to answer those discussions as well. Your one was on it today:)
