hi everyone, yesterday i received my internet bill. amount is 964 rs. or equivalent to 19$. but my online income is around 5$ per month. so in this regard i am a looser yet i am enjoying the unique and latest commodities of internet. if your online income is less than internet bill, would you access internet? i think the online income of maximum mylotters is more than their bills. are you? or you are in the same category of mine? please share.

Hello shibham, I never earn enough to pay my bills. In fact, I am only active here in mylot. Beside the earnings, I like it because of many people I am able to know here. I love the discussions too. I know some people here who depend on their online income and manage to pay part of the bills monthly. I admire them. As for me, I don't think I can ever earn enough online to pay even my internet bill!

@gr8life.I wish that I could earn enough to pay for my bills too. I am kind of close though. The only thing that I can manage to pay is minutes on my prepaid cell phone. That is just about all.

That is not at all unusual as most people don't make any money their computers. They use their computers for recreation, entertainment, hooking up with other people, and other miscellaneous purposes. They don't think to themselves that their computer should and can pay its own monthly bill at least. My cable high speed Internet is $39.95 a month, which I must say it is cheaper than their cable, but I make much more than $40.00 a month using my computer. I I own several web sites, I build websites for other people, I write content articles, play video games for money, and also do live adult webcam ?es all from the comfort of my own home. So as you can see my Internet connection is an imperative neither a recreational nor a luxury service as it is to most people. Most people don't just do my lot, may find other online income producers that help them defray the cost of their main luxury item. Their computer. For most people their computer is nearly worthless without an Internet connection and many people view of non as an unnecessary expense but as an absolute necessity.

i think you are the gems of internet. i have no ability to do all these as you. yes sometimes i play online games, listen music, read news and search my reasearch related articles. from my point of view, my laptop and internet are my absolute necessity. thanks for dropping by. have a nice day.

That's good Shibam. At least you have a $5 share for your internet bill. It's not only mylot or other online writings in surfing that you are on with your internet so for me 5 dollars will be a great help. Aside from having that share in my payment i enjoyed the month's interaction with friends. I enjoy mylot and i am not counting how much i am spending on it but i am counting on how many posts i made on a day to day basis and check on how many new friends i meet on a weekly basis. Cheers!

nice idea and purpose behind your net surfing. i appreciate it. that is only mylot from which i earn that money. but specially the friend circle i have made, nothing can replace it, even money. now a days i have less time to spend in mylot which makes me little bit disappointed. anyway thanks for response. lol

don't be saddened for not having so much time now with Mylot... what is important is you still have to pop in with Mylot. Don't stress yourself too much and enjoy work. Have a great weekend friend!

Wow! This is a good discussion, my friend. You really a loser because of the computation have made. But that is an investment and you should know facts that if investing something is not abruptly you get a good result or the return of investment is not immediately happen...Just give more period of time to see the result. We really get loss in many cases of investment in the first period...In my first month of online earnings I get only $10 while my bill 990 peso that is equivalent to $21 dollar...so I lost around $11 dollar. In the second month I got $30 so, that is good enough. I think need more time to invest to get more result because as month being added income will show increasingly...Be patient to get online jobs...Have a nice day!

Thanks for that appreciation, my friend. We need really to compare our earnings from our bills to note if our online investment really works. We need more studies regarding our online earnings if we want to succeed in kind of field we choose...Since mylot, is very much exciting being here. The amount of money we spend is not comparable for what we learn here and do such special things...

I don't pay our internet bill, so all my earnings are considered income.. But I do pay our electricity bill, and I'm still waiting for this month's bill to see if it's worth it to stay online for a couple of hours to earn what I earn here... I sure hope it is, cause I'm just really enjoying it so much.

my sister pays the internet bill.. since we are all living together, we have divided all the expenses in our apartment amongst ourselves, and I am responsible for our utilities, that's our electric, water and phone bill.

I am in the same boat. My husband always reminds me that what I earn does not even cover our internet connection but, just like a lot of people here, I don’t care and enjoy my time online. The way I see it the internet bill is part of our normal budget and the little that I earn is a little bonus pocket money for myself!

I don't give my husband any of the money I earn, I keep it in my account and use it for myself when I want to buy something. I sell the odd article every now and again and if I receive a bigger amount I may contribute to the bills but not always!

hello shibham, having an internet connection is so useful in every household. for our kids can use it anytime when they have research work/s. this way they don't need to go to internet cafe and do their research. that will be more expensive and they are safer when they do it at home. aside from that, we can have communication to our friends and relatives abroad. can even see them while chatting to them. these two reasons alone are more than the cost of our internet monthly bill. considering the fact that international calls are so expensive. my earnings online is already a bonus to me. indeed, i am also earning that much but that is just fine. for through internet, life makes it easier.

hi robert. your avatar is too ferocious to watch. why you added it? sometimes i go to internet cafe if my net connection become too slow to work. so i know how much i have to pay for an hour. that is the cause i am still using my own net connection having a very slow speed. same to you, my online earnings are extra addition to my income although i have not recieved any payment from net till now. hahaha..... thanks for response. lol

Hello, I like the Hulk, he is invulnerable. I think I'll get a much gentler Hulk looks. You have about 1000 post here at mylot and that should be enough to reach the minimum payout. You should have at least 10 dollars in your paypal account. Just keep looking for more earning online options, you'll find one that will suite you. Let me know how could I help.

I would still use the Internet even if my bill becomes higher than my online earnings because I use the Internet not only for my online earnings but also for other personal uses. If I earn less than my Internet bill I would just consider it a sort of reimbursement for my Internet fees.

Yes, we could still get a lot from using the Internet even if we don't actually earn anything. Besides, I've been using the Internet even before I discovered money making online. I can't imagine cutting off the Internet from my daily routine. For me, it is now a necessity because in this fast-paced world, we need technology that could help us keep up.

Hi shibham, I've been online for 6 years and this is my first time at on line income here in Mylot. I need the internet anyway for email for regular work so I'd be paying for it anyay and my monthly charges just for internet are almost $50. I use it much more since the advent of broadband as its free to use after paying the charge, whilst previousl I had to pay for every minute online. So I would expect online to cover internet costs but they are already earmarked for the annual car tax bill.

hi thea. o then you are a newby in online earning. me too. i am enjoying net connection from just two years. at first i search some information about my reasearch and suddenly one of my friends send me a link to join in mylot. now i am doing both and it is the cause for which i acknowledge net as my part of life. 50$ is too much, i think. anyway thanks for response.lol

Indeed $50 per month is too high for internet fees, we have the most expensive charges in Europe for the internet and for phones, electricity and food.

Hi shibham! My other bills are more than my internet bill :) But it doesn't matter to me coz I don't treat my internet money as my main source of income for paying my bills. I actually just treat it as an extra income. And for me, it's good enough that I earn at least a few bucks from it than nothing at all. But I believe that it's still possible to earn much more in the internet, one would just need to be more resourceful I guess :) Happy Lotting!

hi veronizm. ohhhhh.... then you have a huge monthly expenditure. so you must search some sites for extra income. no need to be more resourcefull. all the chances are in mylot. i shall help you if you seek although i am not a member of any paysite except mylot. thanks for response. lol
@veronizm (909)

25 Oct 09
Hi shibham! It's not that huge :) I also have other sources of income in other sites, I think it's more practical to have more than one in case something happens to the other or like if I get bored with it or something. Anyway, I only consider internet income as an extra income anyway so it doesn't really bother me if I don't get that much from it :)

hi there, As starters its normal to earn less than what we expended. However it should not be forever otherwise all our resources will deplete. It would be better if we all can earn sufficient amount from our efforts.
