I know, how sad, but hey I was so excited, I made my first $1 sent to my paypal through a survey site that I signed up for, through Matrixmail... I was very excited over this since I am a full time at home mom and havent made any money, and I dont get paid to do what I do around the house, but I didnt have to leave the house, and I didnt have to put gas in the car, or dress up...I did it at home on my computer where I have full access... LOL do you remember your first payment??

i heard once that if we moms got paid for our work, we'd be making a 6 figure income! Been a while since my 1st payment. good for you. i still feel good whenever i get paid.

I heard that too, we would be doing well off then... but as it is, we work very hard for no pay... so getting what little I can right now is going to go a long way for me. Since I dont have to get a baby sitter, and this is on my own time!! thanks so much for responding!!

Woot, go you! I don't do online moneymaking apart from myLot but I used to be a part of Ciao. I was at around 5.50$ when they decided to stop paying as much, so I figured I would just request my payment and quit it because I thought that it wouldn't be worth it. Sure enough, that payment came on my PayPal the next month, and it was the first couple of dollars I've earned online. Now that you mention it, I'm pretty close to my myLot payment too, hmm... 9.74$! Anyway, best of luck with earning money online and sorry I'm not able to offer any advice. I do hope, however, that that dollar you got turns into tens, then hundrends, then thousands... You get the pattern.

Nice start for you my friend, keep on going. You have a lot of opportunities online and this is just a start. Well you may be able to reach your minimum payout for mylot this month and that will add up to your online earnings. Keep on posting and keep on joining only legit sites. Way to go my friend and you are doing good for a starter. My first online earning is from mylot so that was around $15 months back.

Hi Congratulations on your first dollar.Like you, I'm a stay-at-home mom, too. And 2 years ago, I wanted to earn somehow. So, I subscribed to a company that offers DSL service and I was good to go. I do remember my first payment. It was through Moneybookers and it was Mylot who made the payment. My 1st payment was more than $11 and it was the result of more than a month of being active here at Mylot.

oh that is so great, I think stay at home moms, need these places to help us feel part of the outside world, it really has opened up a little for me, as a mom we just get lost into the day to day at home and forget what it is like to earn for ourselves... I am so excited about these sites. thanks for responding, and good luck in the future.

oh yes, my first $10 dollars came from mylot when i was just starting and i never stopped making dollars since then. i have to warn you , it gets addicting to the point that we become too greedy (greed is good but not too much)and we tend to go overboard by getting to a lot of stuff that just eats up our time to the point of being unproductive in the real world .

LMAO, I can completely agree with you... one thing for me is I have 2 kids that are 5 and 1, so my time is definitely limited on the computer so I have to get on in the mornings when my son is at school and then after the kids go to bed... LOL, so I have that to keep me grounded for a bit.. thanks so much for the response.

Nice job! Congratulations on getting your first payment! That's not sad at all, it feels good to get a first payment. Or any payment after that for that matter. lol. Yeah, I do remember my first payment online. My first payment online was from a survey site called SurveySpot. I remember after requesting my payment, waiting for the check to come in the mail. When I finally got it, I was really excited. Have fun with your earnings!

it was actually just a sign up bonus with matrixmail that if you signed up you got paid right away, of course I didnt believe it and took a chance, and got it!! I have been doing a few surveys as well and havent heard anything back and I never qualify for them!! oh well, I am still searching more sites. thanks for responding, and good luck!!

I think i got my first payment from mylot, haha. And I got ten dollars, not just one. COngrats though. It's nice isn't it? When you "win" free money it always feels great no matter how small the amount is. I hope you cash out your mylot earnings soon. That would even be better, right? :)

It's kinda my first payout, but I buy on eBay kind of a lot, and I started looking at sites that give you money back for buying on ebay, but the best one I found was bigcrumbs.com, so far i think i've gotten like $7.00 back, just for buying on ebay like i normally do.

It feels good when you get that first payment, doesn't it? I think the first payment I had online was $10 from MyLot a few months ago. I've been paid by other sites since then, and I still get a little charge every time I see that something's been added to my PayPal account.
