August 17, 2008 11:33pm CST
I have been on here for like two monthe already now. It does not seem like I am making anythig on here. I mean I do enjoy comeing on here and sharing my feelings and my opinions with others on here. But it seems like no matter how much I am on here posting day after day it does not seem like I am going anywhere with my earnings. I do have referls on her that have been posting their butts off on here also t help me out. But,even with them it does not seem like it i shelping any. Does anyone else feel like this? WHat do you guys do to help your earning increase on here?

I dont think that mylot is all that hard. Since I have beeno on here I have earned just about the same as I put into it. I guess it may seems hard to other people. But, with me it is the easiest thing I have ever done. I havent gotten any referals on here to help me yet. I seem to be holding my own on here. I really dont want to see you quite.

I don't really feel that way at all. Sometimes I am even surprised at what I earned. I don't have any active referrals as of right now, probably won't for a long time. Some things that have really helped me make more money here, from when I first started out is writing more. Write longer discussions and responses. Another big thing that I found out not to long ago that increase earnings is if you respond back to each response you are given for the discussions you started. One day I started a discussion here and I responded back to each response I was given, each of them were about a paragraph long. I responded to a couple other discussions that were on here but not that many. I made 0.80 that day! I didn't even do all that much work. It was fun. I don't ever feel like it is work here or that I am not going anywhere with my earnings. I can easily make $10.00 or over each month. Especially on the months that I am really active. Try to write more, respond back to your responses. Try to get more referrals. I hope all of this helps you to earn a little more here.

Sorry to hear that. Please have more patience. And just expect little. Do not expect too high. Just do your best, and everything will be ok. And also, do not forget to enjoy each post. In fact, look at me, I have 400 plus postings but I dont even hit the minimum to cash out on here. But it is just ok with me. I will work harder here.

i think if you work hard and post good comments and discussions you will have no problem in getting money. but maybe dont rely on mylot to help you earn, maybe read the news and post a discussion about it, it can help.

It can be frustrating if you are using it to make a lot of money. I just use it for fun and if I reach the payout every other month I am happy. By writing more and by rating discussions I believe you increase your earnings. Also by using all the features like should help as well. I like this site but I use a bunch of other sites to earn as well. I have them all with written explanations on my web page in my profile.

Sometimes it does seem like the harder we try on here the less we get. I don't know why that happens. All you can do is keep posting away and the earnings will get to you sometime

I'm new here but I've made 7 cents for about 10 posts. I would say it's reasonable considering other forums don't even pay a penny. By now, you should have made a couple bucks. Are you expecting much more than that or are you not even making a couple bucks?

6.46 for only 358 posts is great just respond more and get involved int the discussions and it will all come together I am sure. I have made miniumum payout every month so far, have been here seven and I do spend a lot of time on here but my average per month now is $30-40 so that great. Have fun and don't try so hard and it will happen. Also the more you type, minimum four lines the more it pays. Ellie :D

$6.46 is very good. I don't know why you are complaining. You got paid just for doing what you would normally do. I think alot of people come on here and think it's like a real job and expect to get paid as if it is. It's an online community, mainly for discussions, the bonus you get a few cents every time you post. That's cool. Don't expect to earn alot on here, if you want money, go get a real job, it pays alot more than a few cents. You should be thankful you do get paid on here, there are many worse off than you so quit complaining. If you don't like it you can always leave, let the people who want to have a discussion stay here while you chase dollars.

I think its okay so far....I don't know yet, I've got 19cents and I just started....I would have more but someone hacked into here and posted fake posts and I got my credits for those posts yanked...it was only three cents but that was my three cents for putting an effort into trying to make money...how was I to know that they were fake.....but anyways yep.....how much do you have? Have you been paid by this site? Do you get paid more if you type longer comments? Sorry you're having a hard time with this site, good luck

Yes, the site does pay, I got paid this month As for the discussions disappearing, that happens around here from time to time. Don't let it get to you, just keep posting away and the losses will be minimal Yes, if you type longer comments then your pay will reflect that.

You have 367 posts right now. how much did you make with that? I don't think it's hard here, what do you find is hard. Well yes I do agree that mylot pays less but if you post quality posts you can earn good and aren't you happy that atleast mylot is genuine and that they do pay even if it's less. If you are regular you can make $10 easily here in a month if you try harder maybe you can make $20 and above.

No, I don't feel like that. If all your posts are of a similar length to this one then you shouldn't have any problems. Like others have said, you need to post answers or discussions of at least four or five lines, keep them relevant and make sure they read ok, and make sense! I don't have any referrals, but just by being here a few hours per day and joining in the discussions that I find interesting I manage to make the minimum payout each month. If I can do it, I'm sure that you can too! It also helps if you remember to rate discussions, reply back to people who've replied to your discussions, award best response, make friends, and just generally be an all-round participator here on myLot. And of course continue to have fun!

money - money,earnings,dollars
Hi! The only way to earn here is to keep participating and that is to post, respond and upload pictures. Respond to as many discussions as you can in a day. Make interesting discussions that will get many responses and try to respond on the responses and upload pictures related to your post. Just keep doing these 3 and you will increase your earnings. Goodluck!

I have to admit, it is hard to make any money here on mylot. I gave up on trying to earn shortly after I joined. It took me about 3 months to make my first payout, which was set at the minimum. But I enjoy mylot a lot, regardless if they paid or not. I just consider the little bit of money that I do earn from here a kind of bonus. We should consider ourselves lucky that mylot pays at all. After all, there are other forums/online communities that don't pay squat.

Hello babyfirefighter, I am sorry you are feeling lik this but I promise it will get better, add some friends on your friends list and in that way you will be respoding and a lot more and earning more. Don't give up but try not to think about earnings but just have fun posting. Tamara

yeah i can definately understand your feelings of frustration, but i get more enjoyment out of just responding and creating posts than watching the earnings go up. the only thing you can do is just keep posting, explain more in your comments than just a quick sentence or two

Well you just have to lower your expectations a bit. The money you earn from myLot is definitely smaller than what you'll earn in a real job. But getting paid a little is better than not getting paid at all right? Also, posting requires almost zero effort on your part. It's just like chatting with your friends or commenting on random stuff. If you look at it that way then you'll think that myLot is easy. I'm quite lazy so I don't post pictures and stuff to increase my earnings.

Just because this is a paying site, we tend to put a lot of expectations on how much we can earn from it. I guess one factor to boost up your earning here is spending so much time here posting and responding to discussions. Also, its not just the quantity that counts but also the quality of your discussions and replies. For as long as you can see your credit increasing, and top that with the assurance of almost everybody here that this is really a legit paying site, you'll get there eventually. Have some faith and patience...I guess that's all you'll need.
