Are you addicted to myLot??

So, I just found this website today and have joined in a few discussions about various topics. There are such a wide range of interests, it's incredible. I am a member of a number of other social networking sites and participate in various forums/discussions but for some reason, I have stayed on myLot a lot longer than I planned today. There are some people here that look like they have quite a number of postings. I plan to be active here but I don't think I'll be posting more than 3 or 4 times a day. On the weekend, maybe I'll post more. However, just in my first day, I see how this can get quite addicting. Are you addicted to myLot (or any other social networking sites for that matter)? I love meeting new people and listening to others and sharing my thoughts on various topics. But I do have a busy life outside of internet activities and hope that I can keep my involvement here under control. Another related question is (especially for the fairly active users): how many posts do you write on myLot on average per day? I'm looking forward to anyone's thoughts regarding this topic. Thanks!

Welcome to myLot. I'm sure you will enjoy it, you seem to have the right attitude to do so. I have been a member for one month and I am addicted to the site. I come here and post every day. The number of posts I write varies day to day. You will find some people here who post a lot, and others who just add a few responses or discussions. I hope you have a lot of fun and will be an active myLotter for a long time.

I agree that I am lucky to have found this site and be a part of this community. There are some very thoughtful and insightful people here who really take time to write their responses. I definitely would not consider any time here wasted. I just need to be careful to pay attention to the clock because I think there might be some days where I could get carried away. But I do very much appreciate the people and responses to various discussions I have read so far.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely addicted. I've been here for a year and two months or so now, and I love it here. I love how many different topics are discussed, and the friends that I've made, and the chance to just share opinions and ideas. I really enjoy that on the same forum I can talk about both serious and silly things, and I'm never "off-topic" like on forums with a single theme. I can't say how many posts I make in a day. I suppose I probably average somewhere around 20 posts a day, but there are days that I'm not on at all and other days that I'm on a lot, depending on what else is going on in my life. The post count really isn't all that telling for me, because I spend a lot of time writing one discussion or response sometimes, and I often spend a lot of time commenting on other people's responses.

Thank you (and thanks to everyone else who responded) for your thoughts on this. I really appreciate your feedback. I plan on checking in as often as I can and posting on the topics that interest me the most. I will probably end up posting more on the weekend since that is when I usually have more time. I wasn't expecting to get this many responses so quickly but I appeciate all of the feedback. Forgive me for being a newbie with all this but it doesn't seem like there is a way to post a new comment in a discussion which I have started. I suppose this makes sense - otherwise I could artifically inflate the number of responses to this topic. However, I did want to thank everyone here for their feedback. This seems like it is a great community with helpful and insightful people. I look forward to being an active member here.

Hi.. Im also a newbie and finding my way here. I can say Im addicted to myLot for the past few days and until now. I joined myLot out of curiosity, and I stayed because I enjoyed sharing my thoughts, opinions and information I know to people. I never had fun expressing myself as this. I joined also some sites but this one I like best, because the discussion is very active. I sometimes so engrossed that I tend to forgot the time. ยด My goal for a day is to post at least five during weekdays and ten during weekends. My goal for this month is to have a star. *winkz!

Enjoy! - There are good things when we see the bright side of it.
I guess, I am! It was just recently that I got active and addicted to mylot when I have no recourse but to stay home due to some physical trouble. I have been here at mylot for the past 11 months but never was active like now. It gets so addicting when you will start having more and more friends and getting more and more responses to your discussions. What is most exciting is when you share your thoughts and learn from different thoughts and ideas that others have. b]Somehow, what makes mylot best is learning, sharing, and earning![/b]

I wouldn't say I am really "addicted" to mylot but it has become a habit for me to come on here every night. I am addicted to other sites like facebook and myspace because I check on those every now and then during the day. But it may become an addiction, with my personality wouldn't put it past me.

I've been here for about a week and yes, I'm addicted. I find myself at myLot just as much as I would find myself at Myspace or my email or even any of my favorite sites. I'm reaching my 200th post here soon, and it shows as I have only been here for a short time. It's easy to get addicted to talking about the things you already love, plus learning other ways to make money online is great!

I am addicted to myLot! I can't get enough of it every day! I check it a lot throughout the day! It is a sickness at this point! I might need rehab soon! LOL! I am not a part of any other sites like myLot. This is my first and I have no intentions of joining any others. Welcome! Enjoy!

Hello, Ren! Welcome to myLOT. I am also new here. I felt the same way as you. During my first day, I stayed in myLOT a little more than what I expect. I am just browsing and then I see topics that are interesting and I can't help to give my opinions. It is just so fun that you get to say what you want- so I never miss a day without logging in here LOL. I also love to write so making a discussion and responding to some discussions is something that favors me. Stay safe. =)

Hello and welcome to myLot Ren1227. No, I don't think I am addicted to myLot. I can sign out at any time I want, an addict couldn't do that. I do try to sign on daily and see what discussions are being posed and posting to those that catch my attention. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Well, I have the same feelings as you. I found this website yesterday and joined some discussions. I think it's easy to be addicted to mylot for the great number of interests on the site. Also, I am in the similar condition of yours that I am busy with my study and have little time to stay on mylot if it is not on weekends. But I have a good reason to get on mylot everyday. That is I can study English on the site. It not means I'm addicted on mylot but I have a great reason to stay on the site. Just a little addicted!

You definitely have a good reason to be here if you are studying English. So far, nearly all of the responses I have read on various discussions have been very well written (good grammar, spelling, etc.). And maybe spending quality time with good people and sharing ideas with one another shouldn't be called an addiction. As Sarah187 mentioned, maybe 'addicted' is not the right word. Time on myLot is definitely well spent - meeting others, sharing and learning from others is very valuable. But I suppose it could become somewhat of an addiction if anyone (including myself) starts spending so much time here that I start neglecting some other responsibilities. I don't think that will happen to me (well maybe a little on the weekends - lol).

I am very addicted to mylot. Mylot comes into my head many times during the day. When I get up first thing in the morning I come here and am here for a couple of hours at least. I like to read the different new posts that are here. There is a whole lot interesting things that are posted. It is a very nice site to come to and the people are friendly and nice. Generally I strive to make at least 25 posts when come here. Somedays it ends up being more and somedays I don't make it to that many posts. But this is a really nice site and I know you will have many happy hours here. It is easy to end up here longer than you intended to. I do that all the time.

Today is my second day at myLot. I am a number of a number of other social networking sites and the first one I logged into this morning was myLot! I agree that the people are friendly and nice. The discussions are quite interesting and can be on just about any topic that comes to mind. I know that I will definitely have many 'happy hours' here on myLot!

Well now i could say that im a mylot addict. Because the first thing i will do if i open my computer is to open my mylot account than checking my email. And now i seldom check my other account on other social network communities. I use most of my computer time in this website.

I wouldn't say addicted to was the right word. Its more that people enjoy to have a discussion about things they are intrested in, where as an addiction you normally want to get rid of but yet can't help yourself. Mylot is a good was of connecting with other people and sharing views on everything and anything. Plus with mylot if you do get so called addicted then at least you must be making lota of money from it!! Its definately worth putting in a bit of time and effort into posting on mylot to make earning higher obviously. I am a fairly new member here to and have found myself wanting to come and answer a few discussions if in on the Internet, its one of those sites thats on the list of 'If I Have Time to Waste... I'll Do It Here' definately. Earning whilst sharing opinions, very clever idea!!
