I'm Frustrated....

I have been trying to earn money on line but I just feel frustrated after trying new websites. I have decided to make it as a hobby and forget about making a career out of it. Mylot is different, I enjoy being here and it's not so much about the money for mylot because I've made some friends here. I can say what I feel, write anything I want and exchange opinions with other sensible mylotters. So I'll keep mylot and forget the rest. Do you feel the same?

Sheena, like you I'm not here for the money. I did earn $10 but I think it will take me a long time to earn the next $10. I do enjoy reading the posts but wish I had more time to visit. I still want to work at being able to earn $2000 a month on the internet so trying a lot of things to hopefully reach that goal. If I can do that then I will have more time to do voluntary work in the community. I'm not giving up on the net yet. Will give it a couple of more months. If it doesn't work I will have to look for a job. Time will tell. All the best.

Hi friend, I think you should never give up looking, i read a lot of discussion here that they earn more online than their real job. There are site that pays very well but you have to have a good writing skills for that is one for your tools to make money online. Some i know that they make $100 a week which is amazing isnt it. Anyways i dont have such talent in writing, so i end up in this site as a training ground for me, in mylot i learn a lot from the discussion and gain more friends as well.

Well, I think we have all been there. We find sites online and try them out with the hopes and intent of being able to earn some Extra $$, and then it never happens and we get quite frustrated as well. Maybe we have even paid $$ into something expecting to make $$ like our friends have, and it never happens as well, and we wonder why. But I do agree here it does help having the Social Networking going on of being able to meet New friends, and learn from each other while earning a little extra as well makes it easy to do, and Fun as well. Wishing you the Best.

I think Mylot is good but there are real companies that do pay for working online from anywhere. You just have to look better on internet and get references from people already doing it. Mylot might be good for interacting with people but it won't put food on your table. Just keep looking and enjoy mylot in the meantime.

Hi Sheenarobins, I know how you feel about being frustrated. I look at these sites that say you can earn 1,000s of dollars if you buy my product. Then the product is so expensive and has no guarenette that it will work for you. My husband sells books on an auction site, not ebay, we are in Japan. I am considering selling on ebay but as another person wrote there is so much to be done everyday that finding time is hard. I am glad that I stumbled upon mylot. It is interesting to see how other think about things. As I mentioned I live in Japan and there are very few English speaking people near where I live. So I go crazy trying to use Japanese but wondering if I've made sense or if I have understood properly. So mylot is a great outlet for me!! Jacks

Never give up, because if you give up at first, you will be a looser. Everyone in the world ever failed. But, only people who has never give up can be great. If you frustated, you must find a new ide to your website. You should search what people in the world like. You must search new idea anytime and anyplace. You must remember to never give up. You must wake up and try harder, don't be a LOOSER.

Hey. I haven't tried other sites coz I don't rely on making money on line. I am here just for fun and sometimes I find this site can also be boring, heehee. Then I am not here for a while and then I am back, and refreshed. I guess it is good anyway or I will not visit any more. As for making money, you have to get a real job. I have always believed so.

I am aslo a freshman here, and i think mylot is good. But what i don't agree with you is wether one have to find a job or not. My lot is good, just as what i just said , we can keep it and enjoy it. But i think the money you can earn in mylot will no be enough to offer your life, expecially when you are a freshmen at the early time. So, i advice you to find a job to fullfill your own life, believe me , life is not only a single thing, but a lot lovely through in our life. Good luck to you.

Hey Sheena, it should definitely be a hobby. Make sure ya enjoy what you are doing. Anything I make from MyLot is just icing. I enjoy the community and the discussions. I have a portfolio of websites I run that I make pretty decent money from (Ecoistabode, Soccermogul, Basketballxpert and more). Best of luck to you.

There are some people who do make a reasionable amount of money from the internet but they also work ver hard doing so. It is a matter of finding a site or sites that suit you and your talents plus of course you need to be sure that the site actually does pay their members and on time. The other thing which will help online earnings is having a lot of active referrals who also spend time on the sites every day. However a lot of people find that they can get referrals but often those referrals are n ot active so it is hard to rely on them for a specific amount of income. You will make money here on myLot and although it will not be a fortune, even those little bits add up over a period of time. Just keep making quality discussions and responses and you will see your earnings increase. Good luck with your money making endeavours.

No, i don't feel exactly like you feel i think that with the right niche anyone can become successful on the internet,it's like anything else you must work at it in order to reap the fruits from it...there are no quick-rich scheme on the net that are "legit"...you just have to find websites that have been around awhile...my rule of thumb is this:if a website has been around for a year or more it's probably legit or if its real popular and alot of folks are joining and giving the site rave reviews then it might be legit...you just have to keep looking for sites that are for real...

Well, most sites tell you that it's not good to try to make a career from online sites that pay you, and to just do it for extra money. But I tried A LOT of sites before I came to MyLot and this is the only one that I like, so I try to use this one.
