I'm not sure about everyone else, but since joining mylot, I find myself on the computer more(like I needed another reason),typing more(increased my speed by a finger),making me think quicker and more(straining myself at times),not to mention the physical pains.(butt and back ache)why would we put ourselves through this.I guess it's the fact that there are a lot of interesting people here and nice to hear what, and how they feel about things...or it could be all that cash. Did I mention how my hand and three fingers feel?

Hey, rick_d! I thought the same. But think about it like this: You started to THINK, and to THINK FASTER. About many topics. You are making Your own thoughts, trying to defend Your opinion, to express Yourself. Not many people nowadays can do this, can they? AND You learn how to type faster. Your next Employer (daytime, full time job in the real world) will highly evaluate both of these skills that You will acquire here. Plus here are many interesting people. I will follow only those discussions that are interesting both to read and to participate in. And if I can get a money for this, I will remain here EVERY DAY. Maybe they will offer me a position of an administrator? He-he.

Well I usually take brakes from mylot from time, to time, to rest watch TV go out eat hangout you know just live, but yea my shoulders do get a little tired when I'm on the mylot, but I'm here for a little more then just the money but the money dose give me a bit more motivation but, like I said take a brake once and while it always helps me relax and it keeps my muscles from getting sore. well happy posting, and dont forget to take a little brake so you wont get sore.

I did this when I first joined also. Then I got more busy with my online writing...which is my income...and my mylot time has suffered. I do still try to keep up or go back and catch up every week!

well, I was in the same condition a few days ago, not a few days but a few months ago. But I learned a lot of things from mylot. It's a great place to earn as well as learn at the same time.so I got no complaints with mylot.

Well I pass all day on the computer at work typing and inputing, and then I joined mylot and doubled the time spent on my computer. I do it because it is fun and you earn something too. Well I become a bit lazy since I am not doing aerobics to stay lotting .

Yeah, that is really part of the consequences when you are working or typing in front of the computer for a prolonged period of time. Usually, I get back ache, sometimes eye strain. Right now, I am making sure that I take a good rest after working in the computer. My only advice is to give yourself a rest to avoid straining yourself. God speed!

For me it isnt but that is because I am up and down as I have a house to clean and younger kids to take care of. My computer might be on almost all day and mylot will be up on a page but I come back and forth constantly. I probably would do this anyways thou as I do have a bad back and I need to stretch it out so I would have to get up anyways at times.

Yes I do notice that I am manifesting some of these things. Late at night, my back tends to ache like hell even if I've been sitting with the proper posture. I guess I just need to rest once in a while.

When I first joined mylot I was on all the time, and I did get back cramps and stuff from sitting to long. Not to mention I was pregnant, and didn't have much else to do. I usually get on now late at night after work, cause during the day I spend cleaning, playing with my daughter, and spending time with my oh so busy fiance. I just like the people here, and like being able to discuss things. I don't have many friends that I can talk to so this helps when I have questions about things, or just feel like I need to vent. So I guess it's worth the back aches, and cramped fingers lol.

One thing for sure is you will learn to type faster if you stay at this very long. I'm not so sure about making a fortune but I am meeting a lot of interesting people. I've got my computer set up so I can relax while I am online so as long as I can stay awake I can keep on mylotting.

Certain people on Mylot have caused me lot of pain in the you-know-where in the past. By Mylot itself is quite fun. I don't Mylot all day! LOL!! Just an hour to a couple of hours per day, and that is it. Cheers and happy mylotting

I use to do that to myself with mylot too rick, but I've limited myself to only writing two discussions a day then responding to other discussions as much as I can so I find that it's not too overwhelming. Have a nice night

I limit my typing and I don't type fast. I don't feel any difference being on mylot or doing something else. I wish to know how to type faster, but I am very slow. No, I don't have any pain because of Mylot....

I hope you're feeling better as of this moment rick_d. I must say mylot is a bit addicting. I've encountered back pain before, right now I have a really comfortable chair so less pain for me. Happy MyLotting!
