It took me 1 year, 185 days, 5 hours and 7 minutes to do it, but I finally grabbed that golden ring!! I reached my first payout with mylot last night! And earned an extra $0.16 to boot! YEAH BABY!!!! Now that I got that out the way, I can concentrate on reaching 500 posts so I can be able to cut and paste!!! Cheers, Ed

Congratulations, Ed. Earning money online itself is nice and doing so at myLot can be downright fun. I didn't know about the 500 post feature, so thanks for mentioning it. That's not such a high number if you figure an average of just 2 posts a day it could be reached in a year. I look forward to seeing you make that 500th post, and I'll have to see if I can aim for that and beyond.

Tis true Goodbuys4you, it is fun here, but that can be a bad thing for internet marketers, especially part-timers! There are times I've been here on mylot when I should have been out promoting my websites or getting more leads or something. I have to struggle to stay focused on some days. Cheers, Ed

As with all online activity it helps be try to keep balanced. Neglecting myLot certainly didn't do me any good, but if I spent all day every day here that also wouldn't be overly helpful to my earning efforts. Spending time only on myLot is just right for some people, but people like you and me have to devote adequate time to our other Internet activities. Just the other day my using mLot resulted in my finding a new way to earn some money directly, and I also got a sign-up to one of my affiliate programs. The program I signed up for and the referral who signed up for one of my programs together is earning me another 25 cents or so a day. I wouldn't be getting that if I hadn't spent time here on myLot. So you can be sure I will keep coming back to myLot. The myLot postings I did yesterday earned me I think 15 cents. Not bad for myLot newbie like me.

You are correct. Besides the social aspect, what better place could you position yourself as an internet marketer! I'm sure most people came to myLot because they were told they could earn money. It's not exactly the best way, but you do earn without costing you anything. This is a great place to meet people who are ready to jump into the internet marketing arena. So is Yuwie. Cheers, Ed

Congratulations to ya'! i'm working on my third payment now, so that's pretty exciting for me! I don't think i'll make it this month though unless I pick up my efforts.., considering i'm only at $2.30 at the moment! But uh, something to think about. I made $1.40+ in under two hours one day, so if you make lengthy enough responses & discussions you should have no problem reaching payout every month. G'luck on reaching your goal of reaching 500 posts! I was actually really excited when I did. There are places where I don't have access to the internet in which I type up discussions that I want to post on here, and I could cut and paste them in a matter of minutes!

OMG!! 2 hours on mylot is definitely out of the question for me! If I did that, I'd never get any marketing chores done. I don't know what the trick is to earning on mylot. It took me 1-1/2 years and just over 300 posts to make $10 bucks, where you've only did twice as many and been working on your 3rd payout. If I was in it for the money, myLot would definitely be history! Cheers, Ed

Congrats trinale. dont matter how fast or slow , it still a good feeling to reach your first payment in myLot. Like the all proverb said, better late than never. But I do understand you were busy with your blog and etc. Its a nice blog by the way. Specially the Honsety in Internet Marketing. Will you post more often here to reach your 500 post?

I won't be able to change the amount of free time I have, but I will go directly to my interest areas more often to try and find more discussions I can reply to. We have a 3-day weekend coming up, maybe I can make up some time there. Cheers, Ed

Well earned and hard earned Jannijanni! But it was fun getting there too! Since I'm not worried about the money aspect of it, I have set other goals like achieving the 500 mark to keep me going! Cheers, Ed

10 dollars payout... - image of a ten dollar bill
Hi trinale, Congrats! That's a long time but so what?! You did it and you even passed the $10. dollar minimum. So I guess you are gonna be among the lucky people who get to say they received payment next month! I know I'm gonna be among them...for the first time. I bet it'll feel so good! Good luck to making it to 500...just hope it doesn't take you another 1 year, 185 days, 5 hours and 7 minutes to do it hehe. I'm kidding with ya.

HAHAHAHA! To be honest with you Roxanne, I am more excited about reaching the 500 mark than the payout. Oh the ability to cut and patse! Bring it on, bring it own! I'm sure it won't take me another year, but it does seem like forever for me to get there! Cheers, Ed

Yeah, I said it was gonna happened last night and actually thought I was not going to make it because I was running out of time! When I woke up this morning, I was trying to recall how many posts I made and if it was enough. In any case, I knew it was going to happen this week. Now if I can accomplish the same and Yuwie's RSR is good this month, I can make payout over there too. Cheers, Ed

That is so funny!! I guess you haven't been posting here much, well I can tell by your numbers. This really is a fun website I have been here for 2 yrs. I am hooked. Just remember to write long like maybe 10 lines you will see a difference in your earnings.

10 lines! Gosh that's alot. I don't have that much to say in the real world. No, seriously though. I've made a few posts that got so long-winded, I had to go back and apologize for it. I'm sure if I had the time, I could earn more, but I just can't put in anymore than 30-40 minutes when I do make it over here. Fortunately, it's not about the money. Sometimes, you do run across some very interesting discussions. Cheers, Ed
