Hi, I noticed that there are mylotters who really are here every single day, and I envy such people who take the time to participate in mylot, earning money, making friends. In the past few days, I really have a hard time coming here in mylot and in fact for the past two days, I havent logged in. So friends, Do you take a break sometime doing mylotting? Have you come to the point that you are "bored" with the subjects/topics being posted? What contributes to your "slow down"?

I'm new and so far I've been coming pretty much every day as I like reading the discussions people have here, and the cash makes it even more worth the while. I know I'm going to have slowdowns definitely because of school, social life, etc. I still want to try to come online every day whenever I find the time to come on. As for being bored with the topics, I don't think people could get bored because there are different, new, and anything goes type of topics every single days. If you're bored with what people talk about, make your own topic and try to get a lot of people to discuss under that topic. All in all, it's a fun way to pass time while making money at the same time.

Its just being balanced on time I guess... I apologize for saying bored I am not bored actually, I just hooked up with my job and when I get here I ran out of ideas but I read the posts and responses of my friends. Nevertheles, maybe I need to view things positively more the next time.

Actually, I like being here. But, I have a very limited access to the internet and very little time to get myself here everyday, because of that, I don't come here everyday.

It is fun here really, its just that there are things that keep us pre-occupied at times but when we get back on, we just have to enjoy mylotting, keep on going.

I know how you feel coz i havent logged in for 3 days already. I tried to partipate as many discussion today though...just to make it up to those days i was not online. Well for a married person and has a lot of priorities in life it is hard to participate in every discussion almost everyday. It is not because i am bored with the topic though sometimes some topic are boring lol. The main reason why i was not around for a couple of days is because i am usually busy with a lot of stuff.

I think this is a common practice. Everyone takes a break or even number of discussions started/participated may change from one day to the other; for me it happens due to excessive work load on other fields. I have never been bored taking part in discussions here at mylot.

Workloads really would be the main reason why we slow down at times. Happy mylotting to you !

I do take a break when I go on holidays, but most of the time if there is a computer and I get internet connection, I am on myLot. Now it does not mean i am here 24 7 it means that I will go on mylot periodically during the day. I sometimes cannot go on it for that long and since I am writing a novel, I cannot get on it as much as I want, but I do like to take a break, like get away from computers for a few days to a week just to have a rest.

i do check in every day im home however it is getting to the point where i find a lot of the postings uninteresting or even boring for instance i could care less about someones shopping trip or if they have visitors or not and wish we could get something with more meat in it to discuss

Once I had to take break from mylot when I was on my summer vacations and there was no Internet. I couldn't wait till I come home again. But sometimes I just turn on computer and realize that I don't want to response any discussion.

Hi there! I am always here in mylot everyday. I am always at home 24/7 so actually I have lots of time to spend here. And yes, I do take a break from mylot but not completely. There are days that I just spend a few hours to post and respond to a few discussions and then log off. I take breaks or slow down from mylotting not because I get bored but because I am tired. Mylotting everyday is tiring also. Sitting in front of the laptop for several hours and typing and typing and thinking is tiring. But always fun. I also slow down a bit when I have reached my payout. Like yesterday, I have reached it so I will be just taking my time mylotting for today. Ciao!

You know what, before I have a goal that I must make a certain number of post everyday. But I find it less fun and the topics that I post aren't that good. My mylotting that time is to make a post and earn. It so much tiring and the earnings are lesser. But now I don't have that goal anymore. I just visit mylot everyday, check for interesting discussions and don't mind how many post I make and just have fun. And I tell you, having that kind of attitude increases my earnings pretty well.

Some days are better than others, sometimes I have other things to do so I don't get here much. Today, for instance, is Thursday, which is the day I go bowling and I am gone most of the afternoon and evening. When I get home I am usually to tired to want to spend time trying to think about responses and such. Some days I just don't see much worth responding to on here so I go find other things online to play with

I don't do mylot on weekends because I want to rest my eyes from staring at the computer for too long. Also by doing so I get to find more interesting discussions the time I come back here in mylot.

yeah, I agree, it helps to have a break at times, you can think of some topics to write on the next time you logged in. Appreciate the thought magojordan, I think you just spelled out the importance of "breaking up" at times.

I get a bit worried when I find myself spending too much time on myLot - or on the computer in general. There are so many things I should be doing - getting out in the fresh air, walking, reading, catching up with family. I definitely try to take a few days out without logging on - and I'm not interested in the money part anyway, so I only log on when my friends post interesting discussions or topics. If I log on and there's nothing interesting, I log out again.

During weekdays, I am actively participating here but Sunday is my day off and Saturday is not a very active day for me. However, indeed there were days the topics posted are boring to me so if I also have no good topic to post.... taking a break is the only way for me. Sometimes though, there are so many interesting topics, but my job would keep my busy so I have not much time to log in.

Yes. If you call them Breaks then I do take breaks. I cannot come on myLot everyday. Even if I loved the website, then I wouldn't be coming on everyday. What is the need to come on to myLot everyday? A few days a week is more than enough to get your daily fix but a small but somewhat decent income.

If this is the main source of income, you would take a lot hardwork, and I would agree with someone who posted awhile ago (sorry to forgot the username) but I guess he is right, when we do mylot we have to have just have fun !

Its not that hard. Just let yourself get interested and log in once or twice a day. I don't have a PC at home. I use the office computer. Whenever I get the chance I log in and participate. Its easy and fun.
