I know we are all trying to make money online,and my question to you is are you trying to make money online to help out with finances or to prove to your self or others that you can. The reason this came up is because I have been trying to make money online for a few months now and unfortunately I have not been able to make a good monthly income,and it has been depressing me a lot lately and I got to wondering why, and I figured it out I think. I have not been able to get a "real" job because I have health issues and I think it depresses me because I am not even able to do this online and I think I wanted to not only prove to others that I can help out but I needed to prove it to my self. so what about you why are you trying this online making money adventure? and also have you found anything that can bring in a good monthly income that I can try?

Just like you, I don't have a real job either because my health condition became worse and it's depressing me, big time!.. I've been doing reviews for years and i'm quite contented with the earnings.. i used to earn $60++ before but when my blog's page rank dropped to aggravating "0", i don't get to obtain tons of blog opportunities anymore.. I'm looking for new means to earn online but i haven't found a legit website yet.. yay!!! Hope God would give me complete healing/mircale i've been wishing for so long..

hi there! Well in my case, i already have a job for 5 years now and i started to become interested in online income opportunities because i know that what i can earn from it is really a big help for my financing and budgeting problems. But because i am new to this activity, i felt i am just wasting my time and my money until one day i was surprised that this certain site that i joined really paid me and so that's when the time my ethusiasm and dedication took place. I am happy right now 'coz aside from my job i still have some income options online. So dont get depressed. If you are interested to join some sites that i am into right now just say so. Thanks!

Make money online for me is a job because I have no other job. I agree at first it was depressing because I did not make enough to support myself.But, now i am ok.I make enough to support myself and have a little bit for savings. To be able to make aliveing from making money online, you need a plan and somebody to guide you and give your self at least 6 months. You have to treat it as your business. You have to step away from the mind set of working and expect X money at the end of the week or month. take care

I do it to help myself. I was discouraged when I first started. I of course wanted to earn money, but I found earning gift cards was equally helpful. It could help me pay for groceries, prescriptions, and in fact gift cards help me pay for the Christmas gifts I bought last year, 80% were because of my online actions.

I think the reason why everyone is associated with Mylot can be any of them. Moreover I think that most of the people who are associated with the site are there for the purpose of making money only.

I am not trying to prove anything to anyone. I also have a full time job, however, it is seasonal, I work mid March to mid November, wildland firefighter. So, I hsve time to do this, but other than inbox dollars and mylot, I have not tried any other sites to make money. The only thing I use this money for is my hobby, scrapbooking.

I stumbled across internet money-making and then got hooked. I think I am half-addicted and half want to prove that I can do it. I work part-time but would love to be able to leave it and spend more time on the internet as I love it. When I am not on my computer I am thinking about it. Things have been going really well since Christmas particularly and I have found several great groups of people that are helping me to success. At least it gives me hope. I have been much happier off-line because of the great people I have made friends with on-line. Thanks for asking. I have tried lots of different ways to earn on-line and would just recommend sticking to the type that you enjoy. Many people manage to earn at many different types and pooh-pooh the others' attempts. There is no point in anybody leaving a job they don't like to do something else that is not making them happy either. I wish you all the best. Keep trying. Perhaps Mylot is 'the one' for you.

I am doing my online work not to prove to anyone that I do can earn online even though I don't have that much knowledge about internet. But to earn an extra money I can spend with my other needs. Right now, I am so inspired to work more because I wanted to save so I, my children and mom could visit my brother and his family who are based abroad.

i do online earning because i just want to have extra money to spend on top of my full-time job income... with the price of everything rising like a rocket, it will be very nice to have extra income to spend... i don't try to prove myself to anybody... i just want to have the financial freedom so that i can live my life comfortably... take care and have a nice day...

I am doing this more to prove to myself that I can make something out of nothing rather than trying to live on any income I get from online pay. I've been at this for just a few months now, and if I was trying to feed myself on it, I would not be able to go through McDonalds drive through and be full! I would love to eventually make a steady income doing this, but for now I'm not giving up my day job.

the only thing i have found out is that we can't earn a lot by earning online. only few do only those who own big websites earn it as much or much more than those we receive from real mobs. i just average small amount of money every month. enough to buy me some fancy things but not enough to depend my living on it. but i can't stop earning online cause it is really fun to earn some extra cents for some activities. as long it is paying i will get active on the site.

I've been trying for over a year Ruby and still have not the success I've been looking for. I'd like to have a steady income of between 200-300 a month to supplement my full time job and make ends meet. It's hard to maneuver through all the scam sites and all the promises of making millions. I will settle for amount I've mentioned. Don't give up and if you find something let me know and I will do likewise!

I have also been trying for some online earning since last six months. I am not getting a full time job right now and I want to help my family by earning some extra income. I am not able to find a creitable sites for earning money. I found mylotting and blogging to be the best as of now.

the main reason i'm here is to make extra money. but i'm aware of the fact that this can't take the place of a real job. it's just an extra earning opportunity. however, as i became more familiar with how earning money online works, i've discovered that there are actually people who are earning big from their online business. i look up to these people and try to follow their footsteps. if they can do it, i can too! that's what motivates me now.

..I need money to support the financial needs of my family.. this is the main reason why I am into online making money.. I am the breadwinner and its hard because I have to budget my finances to meet all the needs of my family.. Actually, I am still looking for sites who really pays well.. I'm looking for online jobs but can't find any.. There maybe online jobs posted on the net but I don't know if they are all real and not just a scam.. I don't want to risk my effort and time to anything which is not worth my time and energy..
