Hello everyone =) My name is Korey. I'm a 32yr old female from Michigan and I have 2 boys ages 12 and 5 who are the reason I want to be a better person everyday. Please note I do not claim to know the Lions in any way shape or form lol. I'm new around here, this is actually my first time posting here on this site and I'm not sure how any of this works to be totally honest with ya =) So I need some friendly folks to break it ALL down for me...give me all the details please and thank you. And when I say all the details I mean how ALL this works from beginning to end as I tend to be slow at times ( who am I kidding I'm slow 90% of the time ) I look forward to meeting and talking with all of you...and when I say I can talk, I mean I can TALK for hours about nothing lol. I love meeting new people and talking about things I know about and being able to give my input and opinions on the subject. I also love talking about things I dont know about ( or would that be listening to things I dont know about?? hell idk but I'm sure you get what I'm trying to say...at least I hope so ) well then after listening to the stuff idk about, I can learn about those things as well and have MORE things to talk about =)I will be a walking encyclopedia..wouldnt that be hot! A little about me: I'm a very friendly outgoing woman. I amI a Gemini. I get along with everyone I meet and if we dont get along then theres something wrong with YOU!!(lol) I have a VERY silly sense of humor and I am always making jokes or being sarcastic in some way shape or form so please dont ever take anything I say the wrong way, it's never meant to offend its always in a joking manner. I'm the nicest person you will ever get to meet. I look forward to getting to know you all better and posting many many many times..the money helps motivate me even though I dont even know how much it will be =) Talk to you soon & please dont forget to break down the program for me so I dont look clueless =) Thanks!! ~*~ Korey ~*~

Hiya Korey, firs to all, a big welcome to you from me.. feel free to ask any questions when in doubt about using the site. It's a great platform for you to meet lots of people and seeing that you have created this discussion, means that you have managed to navigate yourself awesomely. For starts, don't overwhelm yourself with the details here. Just concentrate on answering discussions, commenting and creating your own too. Have you selected the notifier on the preferences tab so that you will be able to receive a notification like when someone answers to your discussion. Like what I'm doing here. Another important thing would be to slot in your PayPal email address on the preferences tab too, and make sure that you have set a minimum sum in order to receive payment from mylot once your minimum has been achieved. Without further ado, get yourself busy with mylot and I've requested a friend request to you.

Hello Korey and welcome to mylot. I like the way you up here talking so I figured what the heck I will take a few moments and get to know this nice lad. As far as breaking everything down for you to the knat's tail I'm not sure that I'm the one who can do that for you. As it will probably take each mylotter that you meet that will get up here and will show you different tips, tricks and strategies. At least that is what I'm hoping everyone will do. As it would be kind of difficult for one person to try to tell you everything, so my best advice it try to learn a little something from each one of us. Also for starters you need to really go back to your F.A.Q. section at the beginning of mylot and just begin to familiarize yourself with the rules. Nobody can really do that for you. I've been here a little bit over 7 months now and I still find that I often have to resort back to the basics. So once you've gone over mylot rules a few times then you will be ready to dig in here and get started. Please add me as a friend and then we can chat more through personal messages because that is the place where mylot has advise we chat at if we have questions pertaining to mylot or if we just want to send each other personal notes where we will have a little more privacy. So this is my little small introduction to you and you will learn more as you begin to read more of my discussion and do be sure to leave nice long comments. The main thing is to try to make sure that your comments are at least 4 lines long in length as you are being paid for content on this site. Oh and if you have questions about how much we are earning. We are only allowed to talk about it in a pm not out on the open forum. Be nice to everyone and always try to send responses back when someone respond to you. Follow these few rules and you should be good to go. Thanks for showing so much of your personality up front. I could really appreciate that. Feel free to ask me anything if you are unsure about something. Hope you enjoy it here and have a good time doing what you came here to do............. Good luck and happy mylot!

Will add ya as a friend just as soon as I see where to do that at lol...and no fair you guys got smiley faces n stuff! Share with the new girl I insist =) I prolly should have read the FAQ's first but I'm always the type that leaps in head first and then realizes I have no idea how to swim...all is good though I'm sure I'll be a lot pro in no time. So it is better to answerr and comment to others queestions than to start your own? or is that another FAQ thing :-x Oh let me not forget to mention...just as much as I like to talk I like to ask QUESTIONS!! Oh your all gonna be sick of me by tomorrow watch ;) ok going to FAQ and read everything page by page ( one would think I woulda done that before hand but I pride myself on being differen :/

Welcome to mylot, Pretty much you just respond to discussions and start your own. By doing so you will earn money. You want to make sure you post at least a couple sentences each time. Main thing is just to have fun.

Welcome aboard. You found a great forum and community. The first thing I would do is go to the bottom of the page and read the guidelines. Also, read the FAQ's. Too many people don't do that and end up posting all sorts of threads that violate those guidelines and their discussions are deleted by the moderators, they then post discussions about how their discussions are deleted which ALSO get deleted because those too are a violation. There is no magic formula here, no tricks or methods, it's all abuot quality. Start threads on topics that get people talking. Post thoughtfull quality responses to other threads. Avoid posting responses in threads that violate the guidelines, because those threads will probably be deleted and you will lose what ever you earned by posting in them when they disapear. Take some time and consontrate on posting in other people's threads until you get a feel for things. Once you have gotten comfortable, start a few of your own and then follow up on them when people reply to them. Make friends and add interests. Again, welcome aboard!

Hi, Korey! Welcome to the myLot family! By the looks of it, you already got tips from our friends here. I've been here seven months but i am not that much active although i enjoy joining discussions whenever i can. I prefer responding than starting my own. I hope i can follow on your next discussions, too!

Welcome to the mired world of mylot. Just know that no body would help you here unless asked and this is a place to build yourself and ruin yourself. Never crave for money here. Show your worth and get famous in no time. You will learn things as time would pass by.

Hi Korey! Welcome to mylot. I hope you find this site as fulfilling as I do. I came here because I found some information on a site that I thought was pretty legit. Turned out, I was wrong. This is a nice place to socialize and get real time info on a lot of things. It's a bonus that you get a little money out of it in the process. My boyfriend is from Ann Arbor, Michigan, by the way :-) You seem like a very pleasant person. I hope you enjoy your time here on mylot. If you have any questions, there are a lot of people here who are always willing to help. Count me in ;-) Happy mylotting.

Hi Korey, welcome to mylot! I hope you will enjoy it here. If you haven't already done so you should read the guidelines as well as the FAQ's which can be found at the bottom of the page. (Okay, well maybe just print these up if you can and go through it that way.) It might help you get the hang of things here. Mylot may not pay much, but they do pay. I've been here for 2 1/2 years now and have made a killing. Just kidding! LOL Just keep in mind the more you post, the more you can earn, especially when it comes to quality discussions/responses. I hope this helped! Good luck! Happy mylotting!

Nice to meet you. I haven't gone to Michigan. Can you tell me about that. My country is far away from your country, maybe a half of earth. I want to make friends with everybody in there. Again, nice to meet you

Hello Korey, you're more than welcome to be among us :) I'm sure a lot of people must be helping you already, but do let me know when you need help with ANYTHING around here, I'll be available. Why don't we become friends meanwhile? :)

welcome Korey! I'm new here too having been doig this just 4 days now but its very easy - as you're hearing - just start discussions like this - as many as you can and want to and respond to other people's discussions and that's about it and watch your earnings grow for doing just those two things...the number in brackets seems to measure your 'activity' or 'participation' and this is what you;re getting paid for, I noticed it goes up when you respond to any discussion but doesn't go up right away when you start one - only when somebody responds t your discussion and then it onbly seems t count once regardless of how many responses you get. It's also polite to comment on people's responses but I don't think your score goes up when you do. Check out some discussions for ideas but you'll get the hang of it really quick, I'll add you as a friend too s feel free to ask if you need anything.
