Why did you join myLot and what did you expect to learn or do from joining this site? My first thought was to earn a few dollars and then realized it was a fun, great way to socialize on the internet. Views and opinions from all over the world has been very interesting. I am proud to be a member of such a good site and participate as often as time allows.

I first joined because of the money! But I soon learned that I just don't have the time that it takes to make a buck on here. So now I enjoy mylot for the pure fun of it!

i joined mylot initially to make some few dollars and eventually evolved into research to get some ideas on what to write and to know what people are talking nowadays.now, ia m not into making money out of mylot but i use it as a vehicle for stress release and research. this is also where i can exercise my brain into thinking productively.as we all know, mylot only pays us so much.

When I first joined mylot, I am in need of money. I dont have a job and I dont want to ask money from my parents. So I tried earning online. Then I found mylot, tried it and now loving it. I get to know and learn a lot while earning money.

I joined myLot for a combination of reason - I saw an ebook telling about this place you could make money really easy just writing a few words. Well, I joined but read the guidelines before I did anything and learned that guy was promoting cheating (he is no longer a member of myLot having been kicked out). I was doing freelance writing at the time and though hey great way to keep up my writing skills when I didn't have and assignment and make a little money at the same time... Well, I've succeeded at both but more than either I have made some wonderful friends here.

I also thought I'd make all kinds of money here. This didn't happen but it's been an interesting and fun experience. Chatting with members from all over the world and keeping in close tough with others via email. This site has also helped me to sharpen my writing skills. Thanks for responding.

before, i joined mylot coz i want to earn money. but as the time goes by & i meet new friends, i should say that earnings money is just my second priority. friendship is really priceless, you can even meet REAL friends here. even this is just a cyber world, you can still feel the warmth of there concern & they are also around when you needed them most..

I too joined initially to earn some money and participated for only two days at the beginning. I gave up when I thought the payout to be too low. Later one day om my weekly off, I began to get bored and opened my lot. Partcipated in a discussion and then on I am in, not much caring for money and only here to have some nice time

To be frank, my main aim to join myLot is to earn money. Secondly i think that myLot is a right place to make friends all over the world. Thirdly, here you can improve your knowledge, at least little, in any field. And finally here you can have fun. For the above reasons i joined myLot.

Because of the money was the 1st thing on my mind when i learnt about mylot ^_^ BUt just after a month or so, i have decided to give up, but then my frenz in mylot started to pull me back and make me understand more of mylot.. SInce then, earnings are not much of my priority, but rtaher my frenz ^_^ I just feel that i need to come back here more often to catch up with them and hang around, make more frenz because mylot is a place that's different from others, as we can really feel the warmth of the ple here ^_^

Ditto, sounds exactly like my views. First I joined to make money and then I ended up making cool friends and getting great opinions from all around the world. The fringe bennies are better than the original goal!

first of all this was introduced to me by a friend. when she told me i could earn by just answering discussions it has motivated me to join. i was like looking at this site as my sideline. haha. first few days as well as weeks for me has been very hard for me. i get so pressured thinking of interesting topics to start with. haha! and most of my discussions had no responses. this has caused me to quit but still my friend insisted on pushing me with becoming active to this site. then finally i have seen my earnings and the more i got motivated to work here. i have considered this as my work too because here i get paid for the opinions i say about certain discussions and it has been an outlet to me to pour out any burden that my heart brings everyday. glad that i have known this site because it is not just that i earn, i have met new friends here too.

A friend refered me to this site in Arpil of 2007. I didn't know what to expect really. At first I think I just sort of looked around and read discussions and slowly started responding. I was not back then and still not good at starting discussions but I do love to respond when it is something of interest to me or something I have any knowledge in. I have learned a lot of things on here also. I am not here for making money, if I was then I would be in big trouble, but it is nice to get a little money here and there. I have met many great people on here and some that I even consider friends and even some that I feel would be a great friend in person. Have a great day.
