For most of my time here ,I have been trying to find new discussions every day .I recently read a post in which someone said they earned a bunch on discussions and this has led me to think that maybe I have been ignoring a very valuable part of the mylot experience.Consequently,my new thrust is to post an equal amount of responses and discussions. Dont misunderstand me ,my new thrust isnt purely capitalistic but I am also trying to ensure my longevity here on mylot as I fear that I may not be able to continue generating the inspiring discussions at this rate.

Personally, I found that posting discussions was pretty much a waste of time. I'm not interested in trivial subjects, so my discussions got very few responses. My experiment has been to find discussions that allow me to write substantial replies, and it is working. I've heard of people making as much as three cents a post, but didn't believe it. I still haven't reached that, because most days are a mix of short and long responses, but I got very close yesterday. People who post a lot of discussions often complain that they're hardly making any money, and their problem may be a mix of discussions that just aren't interesting enough to get a lot of replies, and their not bothering to participate in other people's discussions in a useful way. I get a kick out of some of the discussions, especially the really dumb ones, but frankly, I'm here for the money, and what I do here has to be worth the time I spend.

I actually am doing what you just said in your title. Before I wanted to post discussions, any discussions, that pops up my mind. I was very eager at first but the idea that not everyone's attention gets attracted by my posts got me discouraged to post my own topics. Then I realized I will also earn if I respond too topics my fellow myLotters post everyday. I thought it would be better for me to respond to others' discussions more than post my own discussions that do not invite responses. I've been doing this in the past two weeks now and yes, it is a very effective way for me to earn better myLot money. I'm getting better everyday, I know. My daily performance per post is above $0.02 per post. No day below it in the past two weeks. I love the way I've been performing this past few days. I wish you the same, ronnyb. Keep on myLotting everyday!

HI You go for it.Having a few for bob in your pocket is not bad incentive to work hard, being on here has given me something to do but not being above capitalistic my self thats a good reason for doing all these discussions as well.I seem to spend all my time answering but that is good as well, it is good to see what others are thinking it makes for a balanced view on the outside world especially when one does not get out much.xx

Mylot is an experience which helps youreach out to people and also to widen yur horizon. one need not start too many discussions as they are not worth it if they are meaningless. One must only start a discussion if there is somethign you want to discuss. Answering discussions is much more interesting.

hi ronnyb. well ronnyb, i usually don't start discussions myself unless it is about a topic i'm truly interested in. i just post responses but that too poses some problems especially if there aren't much discussions that interest me. anyway, i just try my best to post responses. hope this helps.

Hi! I'm also a newbie here. This discussion here is very helpful for new ones like me. When I joined myLot a few days ago, I thought that I would earn much by posting new discussions but they were not earning anything. I get more earnings by joining other members's discussion. And now, I am starting to enjoy posting responses.

When i was newbie in this site i just love to post new discussion at least 5 discussion a day but i find out it is not making a good earnings if your discussion dont get plenty of responses,i have notice that if you got more than 50 or more responses you can earn more but if you have below or few responses only, you wont earn that much. Now i am concerntrating on responding that making discussion.
