The next day

United States
March 2, 2008 8:49am CST
This is a follow up to a conversation I posted yesterday about it being March 1, 2008 and whether or not you planned to do better in the new month. Now that we are in to the second day, how was your first day of March on mylot. Did your earnings meet your expectations? Did you connect with your friends in a way that was beneficial to you? Do you feel good about the month ahead of you based on yesterday? Did you do anything to reorganize your profile or your friends in order to streamline your mylot experience this month? Personally, I made more yesterday than I had in the few days before it, but still didn't make as much as I had previously. Although, I did reach 500 posts, FINALLY! As for friends, I didn't connect with as many of my good friends as I would have liked to, but maybe they just weren't available.

I do plan to do better this march so far jan and feb have been zilch as I resolved tolose weight this year for sure and to keep up with my doctors appointments instead of letting them slid. So far I have not accomplished my weight loss but must do it this month to help control my diabetes and I must keep my doctors appts this month.I did see my diabetes nurse practioner last Month and was pleased at the outcome expcept that my blood pressure was too high and thus she came me a prescription for Lisinopril. I am going to see my nephrologist Mar tenth and that is good. I hate that i put off drs appts til I have bad news because if I kept them on time I would have a handle on my health. asfor my earning on my lot I am very new but have doubled from what I had the first few days so that is good

You sound like me. I have a health issue that I have procrastinated about for much too long. Finally in the last month I have addressed it, but its not easy to face our fears head on. Good luck with your health and with your time and earnings spent here on mylot.

My goal for march is to make payout. I have another 7.11 to go to reach my goal. Hopefully I will be able to make it. I hardly posted the first two days to be quite honest but I plan on poting a good bit today, I am feeling a little anti social so I do not really want to leave my room. As for connecting with my mylot friends I have usually just accepted friend requests from people and have heard nothing from them since. I am hoping to get more referrals and to have some that actually post. That will be my biggest challenge tho.

well, i didn't comment on your post about the first of march as i didn't have any goals set. but i'll answer this one as it's easier. grins hehe well, my earnings were average i guess, i didn't expect it to go up by a lot as i wasn't online that often but it did grow by a little more than i had though it would. so i'm happy with it. i didn't get much chance to connect with my friends due to the same reasons as above. but i didn't reorganize my profile and all as i don't tend to fiddle around with these stuff much. i'm kind of lazy in that aspect. grins. i have yet to reach 500 posts. i still remember the time when we were more or less around the same number of posts hehe as for the months ahead, i definitely won't be earning anything as i won't be online in a few weeks time and i'll definitely miss mylot. but once i'm back, i'll be sure to be more active here and at that time, i think that maybe i can at least reach payout once every 2 months too. right now, i hope to reach payout before i become 'absent' so this is my goal for now you could say. i'm still around $2 away so let's see how it goes.

What do you mean you won't be around in a couple of weeks? What a bummer. Now you'll get a taste of what I was feeling last week unfortunately, but thats ok, you'll just come back with a vengeance and pass us all up.

I'd like to think that I am about to write something profound and erudite. Hah, some hope. Firstly many congratulations on reaching 500 posts, I am just behind you and am praying that I can get there today. Having only just managed to get a load of friends as a result of my post on the subject, I am loathe to cull them just yet. I did deny an Indian lad yesterday, the first one that I have done. I felt bad about it, but I go very adult sometimes and he says that he is 16 (bet he's nearer to 12) and I just feel that it's not appropriate. For many reasons I feel very cheerful about the coming month both on and off myLot. The sun has put in an appearance (probably not so strange in Phoenix but here it is a blessing), flowers are breaking through and Spring is nearly here. Finally, if your friends are good ones,. you will connect and no-one will mind if it has been a day, a week, a month or a year. By the way, Happy Mothering Sunday. Hope that you're getting a bit of pampering.

I'm surprised to look at your numbers and see that you aren't at 500 yet. From the content of your posts and comments I would have thought you had been here a long time. You certainly have developed the maturity of someone that has many, many posts. I have no doubt that you will reach 500 today or tomorrow. I don't blame you in not adding someone that young either. I actually looked at someones profile today before adding them and it has been the first time I have done so. I think I'm going to spend some time this next week going through my friends list and sorting them out. Have no fear though you will continue to be one of my cherished contributors.

Yesterday happened to be my biggest earnings day ever. I hope to stay on this track. It was only something like 47 cents, but that is well over the amount I usually make here. I was very happy. I have not reorganized my profile since they changed it a week or two ago, other than deleting the portion that shows activity. So far March is looking better for me than February and that is a good sign. I like it when I can start off on the right foot! :)

Yeah for you. Thats a good start to the month and I hope things continue as well for the rest of March. Congratulations.

I dont think I did too bad, I wasnt really aiming too reach any goals, I just like to answer to everyone! I have not really made any good friends on here yet, I dont think, I have had request from people to be friends but they just go onto my friends list and that seems to be it. But I know now when payout runs from and too thanks to you and so I know for a fact that I will make my first payout on the next pay, so thats good!

I'm glad in some small way that I could be of help to you. My only goal so far has been to reach 500 posts, just so I could cut and paste and add pictures. LOL.

I had a great day yesterday and not only did I have a lot of laughs I made $1.17c -way more than I usually make in a day. It was fun and managed to catch up with a few friends who participated in my discussions. I actually couldn't get to sleep last night so I was up until 3am LOL Congratulations on reaching 500 posts :)

As much as I wanted to make more posts than usual yesterday, I have been busy with my transcription assignment. Anyway, God willing, I may be able to earn at least one dollar in one day of posts in the near future.

I am sure if that is what you want to do, you will reach your $1.00 goal. Best of luck today and in the new month.

I took it easy. I did respond to several posts, but wasn't nearly as active as I had been. I needed the break. (Still made .60 though, and another .10 from a referral!). I did notice that as I was shutting down for the night that I had reached 500 posts too. I hadn't realized I was that close and I went off to bed feeling a bit of satisfaction at reaching that milestone. I'll be in and out today too, but don't think it'll be a marathon session.

I saw that you were reaching 500 posts and I believe I commented on it yesterday. Congratulations. It feels good to reach that goal doesn't it and it seemed to come so effortlessly. I won't be on too much myself today as my son, boyfriend and I are going fishing. Still there is all of next week. Good luck today.

Hello again Kbourgerie, First I would like to congratulate you for reaching the first land mark, the 500 posts. Keep it up. About your discussion, just like the past few days, I am unable to be active as my first months here on mylot. As of today, I only post few responses and have not posted new discussions. So my earnings today, didn't met my expectations for this month. I want to reach payout for this month, and I expect to have an average daily earnings of 35 post per day, but I only earn 19 cents today which is quite low to what I expect. But anyway, it is too early to know. I think I should not be disappointed about it.

Thank you for your kind words. I think any time you have spent on the site is beneficial, even if it is only a few cents that you make.
