Hi everyone. As some of you know; hubby lost his job yesterday. We have nothing at all in savings. I am not exagerating! We have nothing. We were already struggling. He applied for unemployment but that is a 40% reduction in income. It is kind of good though cause it has brought me back to myLot and MyPoints. Both programs I really like. (might go back to Yuwie but not sure yet) Well everyone in the myLot community I ask that you open your hearts and help me out. I am NOT ASKING FOR MONEY!!!!! Instead please reply to this discussion with a suggestions of at LEAST two discussions you would like me to participate in. I ask only that you post at least one that you did not start. This becomes a win win situation. I get to make replies and earn AND everyone that I reply to makes money as well. Won't you please help me and my family in a time of crisis? (and help yourself and others too) Thank you in advance. OH we might end up with a new friend or two in the process!

I'm sorry to here that. It would be great if you get more and more posts on your discussions, then you would earn more. I don't really ahve nay discussions to share. I'd say just reply to nayof your interest, no responses, new user or friends started. :) And start more discussions, more people would hopefully most likely reply. :) Goodluck, and I'll keep you in my prayers.

I know the routine here. I was just trying to help myself and others at the same time. Figured someone could say hey I posted this "blah blah blah" and have me reply to it. At the same time that someone could say I read this other post "lalalalala" and I could check that one out too! Thanks for the prayers I do need them!!!!!

I'm new here (4 days), so my response may not be as informed as others who may be veterans. I can say that I go to the open discussions, read them, and if I find I have something to contribute, I respond. So far, after replying on 2 separate days, I earned $0.28 cents. It's not much, but it's more than I've earned my entire life for my own $02. cents. Good luck.

I am sorry to hear of your mis fortune but I must say that youhave an excellent idea here and I thank you for your post. I have recently found a new website that is easy to make extra money on. I started three weeks ago and already been paid twice. Don't make a lot but I make some and I get paid. If you are interested send me a short message. I will shoot you back the URL. It is a great site and no limit to how much you want to work it. In closing, here are a couple of discussions for you! Keep up the great work. This too shall pass. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1864803.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1852124.aspx

Well, Thank you very much. I'd be happy to send the link but my friend request must be accepted first in order for me to send you a message. Failing that, check my profile. It is the first link at the top on the right [above the banner for Stop Puppy Mills] Best to you!

Try to be as active as possible here. Target at least 50 responses and answer to everyone who contributed to your discussions. Take heart and read your bible remember God is rich and you can never be poor when you are with him.

I know God is my provider and will get me thru this. I know I can easily reach payout in a month here as I have done it before! I was just hoping people would help me get a jumpstart and save me some searching for good discussions. That is why I asked for a discussion they posted and one they replied to.

I have rarely started any discussions and can't remember when the last one was. I just enjoy reading others and replying to those. I hope you make enough to help out and that your husband soon finds another job. Good luck and God Bless.

I hope the situation turns around for you soon...are you working at all? I bet it's a struggle when someone loses their job. It's a tough economy to try to get by in! Hopefully something will come up for you! Good luck!

I am unable to work outside the home due to many factors. It is a huge blow to us cause we had fallen behind as ti was. Now getting unemployment while he finds something else is better than nothing but for us it is a 40% reduction in income. For some who make more than my hubby did; they get hit even harder cause there is a maximum amount that they will pay out per week regardless how much you were making.

hi you can visit my blog in my profile for many good ways of making money online. but if you are seriously in need of money, i think both of you should seriously get a job outside. earning money online is for an extra income

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your trying to help but I did not ask for recommendations on how to make money online. I asked for links to two discussions. One that you started and one that you replied to. So far only one person has actually done that. I know money online is for extra income. I can no longer work outside the home and my business is not exactly booming! It isnt' as though my hubby is not going back to work. He only lost the job 2 days ago!!

I feel very bad for you and hope you can do something to to pay for shelter, food and clothing. Your husband and you will probably have to get busy writing resumes, networking and applying all over for work. The unemployment is at a record high, so misery has plenty of company and plenty of competition. Just keep plugging away at finding ways to earn income. Look around here, and you will find topics that you enjoy responding to.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. the fact that so many are unemployed is what has me most nervous.

I'm sorry to hear about what happened. Well. earning online is not a easy money. Most often than not, you really need to work hard andextend some patience before you can earn some bucks. You cannot consider as well online opportunity as a JOB. However, this great opportunity helps a lot to add as extra bucks. You may consider have a blog and earn from it, but as what I said it's not an easy money. It needs patience, courage and hard work. If you're interested to know more about this, just let me know and I'll share to you the little things I know about blogging. Also, there are sites you can do offers and posting jobs. You can see the banners on my profile. You can also take surveys. Just want to remind you as well to be aware of those scam sites, so not to waste your time. God bless you and your family. Stay strong and never lose hope.
