I don't know about you, but I find mylot a very good learning site and it far exceeds any amount of money we could ever make in here. I know a lot of users complain because mylot doesn't pay very well, but you know what, they really shouldn't worry about what they get paid, as making money in here isn't the most important thing. I will say though when I first came in here, I was just for earning alone, but since I have been here, it has become much more than that. I have learned what we can and can't do in here, and I have made lots of friends in teh process. I really don't understand why a lot of users put so much emphasis on earning, when it is just a bonus anyway. I have learned so much in here that I really can't see myself not wanting to be here, and besides this site is a lot of fun as well. If anyone comes in here and doesn't have fun, they that person is not really getting anything out of mylot, and that is a shame too. Mylot has a lot to offer if users would just understand that having fun in here is what it is all about, and I really can't see myself anywhere else, and I am glad I am part of it, and I have never regretted my decision to join whatsoever. Share with us all your feeling on this. as we will all be waiting to hear what you have to say. Everyone have a nice day, and happy mylotting.

This is so true. The learning part is much more appreciated for me than the earnings. I get my healthy dosage of news from here too; and there are just lots to read per day. Money is simply not everything in this world, and I really think that as far as money is concerned, anything that we earn here is already good enough. As in a bonus incentive, in which you have mentioned. We don't see anyone getting paid by just typing out, so it's cool to have that bit of incentive. Nothing much, but it's better than nothing, and anyway, the fun part is what many seek, and that's why there are lots of long-time members here. mylot rocks! And same like you, I do not regret whatsoever too. In fact, I could be making some more extras from other sites, which I fore-go, because I'm just so in awe of discussions here. It's so addictive. Have a good one, rose..

You are so right abou mylot bein addictive, and the money isn't much, but it is better than nothing, and every little bit does help, and it all adds up in the end. I will let mine build up in paypal, and transfer it to my savings account, when I have enough in there, and I have been able to put some money there, albeit not a lot. I have been only here since April, but now that I have been here, I feel like I am an old timer myself. This place is also fun, that is for sure and I am glad that I am a prt of it. Thank you for your response and happy mylotting.

..Hi rosekiss, What I find interesting on mylot are the people from other countries who share tidbits of information about their cultural, which gives you an insight about the rest of the world. I find that very broadening and fun to read. It is an educational site and the money that is given or earned is an additional bonus. I am very glad I found the site and the nice people. Take care.

I agree that the site is very educational, and yes we can learn from the other cultures, and I find that ver interesting, as there are so many diverse cultures respresented here. That is what makes mylot so unique, and I like you amd glad that I am a member here. I just wish I had found it soon er than I did, but now that I am here, I am not going anywhere. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Totally agree with your comments, and if more people could have been like this from the beginning and quit worrying about their earnings this place could be a lot better for sure. I know even though the Extra that we can earn in here is nice, it is not always the most important thing for sure. I love being able to come in here as well and meet so many wonderful people, and talk among my friends learning about new things, and helping others out. Truthfully I can never imagine my life without myLot, and Glad you are here as well.

I certainly do agaree with you. The earnings we make here is so little that poeple put to much emphais on it isntead of coming in here and having fun. That is what mylot is all about, and I am so glad that I am a part of it. I just love sharing with others and learn from others too. I have learned so much and I hope to conitinu eto do so. Yes, what we make in here to me is just a bonus, and not enough to lie on alone, so doing other things besides mylot is the way to go. I have made many good frineds here, and I hope to continue doing so. I am very happy to be here and I hope to continue in here for as long as I can. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I don't do tasks either, as I just basically post responses, with some discussions I have started. and posting comments to my discussions, and I am earning from doing just that. I am so glad that Ihave a part in mylot, and I don't regret my decision whatsoever, and I hope to contimue posing for as long as I can. Tank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I agree that Mylot isn't a good place to go for earning money. A lot of people seem to be on here mainly for that reason. You can usually tell from the way they respond to a conversation or the content. It isn't usually a conversation at all. People just post something and then never come back to that again. In general though , I have to disagree with the whole learning vs earning statement though. I just don't like how that makes it look like one or the other. I agree that Mylot isn't for earning much, but there are way to earn and learn at the same time in life.

You are right, and maybe I should have worded it differently, but you got the idea of what I am trying to say. The ones that do come in here to post just to earn, don't really post meaningful posts, and like you said, you never see them again. I think they go from discussion to discussion just to see how much they can post and make in one day, and they are missing out on why muylot exists in the first place. I have come to the realization that it is for the sharing and learning aspect of it, with the earning part of it a bonus, as we don't earn all that much in here anyway, but it all does add up over timve. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Hi rosekiss, i also don't have any complain against mylot. What you say is absolutely correct, learning is more precious. And in mylot we get to know new stuffs, new people etc,etc. It's been almost 2 months since i joined mylot and i'm quite satisfied with my earnings. Thank you.

I have been here since April of this year, and I must say, that I have learned a lot, what we can and can't do in here, and slso, I have made lots friends. Yes learning is more important, as when you take the earnings out and put them aside, mylot becomes just plain fun, but when you use it for the earnings alone, then you don't have as much fun, asn I must say, probably don't learn as much either. That is why I have decided to put the emphais on on learning in here as that is what mylot is all about. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I'm totally agree with you.I came here just by a chance and i'm a green hand here. I think it is a policy to encourage us to learn more,to know each other well, to think about another opinion, to hear something that we ever heard before...and at the same time, you can also get bonus.It is a little prize when we know more about our friends, our society, our world.It should be a good thing.Of course, if someone overestimate of this, he or she will complain... So,i want to say to these friends, don't think too much of the earning, why not just come to enjoy yourselve? If you have good news, you must want to share with others and get the blessing from your friends,and maybe oenday you are in the blue, your friends must be glad to company with you to get out the depress.All this can be calculated by momeny?

That is what I do, is enjoy myself when I am in here and not worry about the money, as it is only secondary anyway. I like the fact I can express my views whether right or wrong, and people will comment back on them, and they may not agree but that is okay too, as we aren't all going to agree with everything each other has said, but tha is what makes us all unique. I don't know what I ould do if I couldn't share my views with others, as I do love to help others whenever necessary. I was helped when I first came here, and now I want to return the favor. I have been able to do that, and that has made me feeel good about being here. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I too was like you in the beginning. I too joined Mylot for the money but when i realizd that the earnings were meagre i decided to enjoy myself in it. Moreover i like to write though i do not want to take it up seriously.But mylot gives me a lot of satisfaction as i like to respond to other peoples queries and help in solving any problems that they may have or give my opinin on any topic. Even if the earnings are less their prompt payments after a month are one of the main attractions of this site.

I agree with you whole heartedly. The earnings are small, that is true. I haved come to realize that when I just enjoy myself and not worry about the money part of it, I have more fun, the time goes faster, and in the end, I have gained friends, and much more knowledge than I ever realized. That is the best part of it all, learning and sharing with others what we know, so they can know too. Thank you for your response and happy mylotting.

I am so glad you are enjoying yourself in here, that is what it is all about is being able to have fun while learning, sharing, making friends, and earning. I have been having fun in here too, that I do miss it at times when I am not here. I can't be in here all the time as I have other things to do, but when I am here, I will do what I can, That is all any of us can do. I am here for the long haul. Thank ou for your response, and happy mylotting.

I like being here as I can intereact with members from all nationalities. When I was a kid I had a couple of pen friends and that was the greatest achievement for me then and here I am now where I can pick and choose from so many nationalities, answer their questions, put my comments and even send messages and finally may be convert this virtual contact into a real one. Earning money is no doubt an added incentive and it feels wonderful to check it at the end of the day when it slowly but steadily increases.

You are so right. I like the fact that all nationalities are represented here, wehre we can help each each other out if need be. I know I have helped a lot of other natonalities as well, as newbies, who really don't quite understand how they can earn here in mylot. You know that is what it is all about is helping others, and besides, I am giving back to them the help that I was given when I first started in here. I was so appreciateve of it too, as I did learn a lot and I am still learning. You are right that earning is just an added incentive, but a very good incentive at that. thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Just be active and participate in discussions, and make them as good of a uality as you can, and you will earn. Quality means more than just a ew lines and few words. I do agree with tyou though, we can get a lot of help here if we need it. There is no lack of help ever, as I was helped when I first came in here, and that is what it is all about is helping others. I love to hlep others, and give them back what they gave me when I first started. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I came here first to earn but then this is one, if not the only, enjoyable way I've had to earn. I've just been here a week so I'm still getting the hang of it. I can do some tasks to earn extra. But I really like myLot because at least one person will respond to your post.

Yes, mylot is a very enjoyable way to earn. It is the best one I feel, as there aren't many sites where we an socialize with each other, shear, learn, earn, and make friends all at the saem time. When I first came in here it was all about the money, but the longer I am here, I have come to the realization that the money is only a bonus and sharing with others is more important. I have also made lots of frends and I am happy about that too. I am glad when I do get responses to my discussion as it is hard to get them at times. I thank all teh users for taking time to respond. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Yes, rose, you're right! I also think learning is main purpose I'm here. I can read many different discussions, which are created by mylotters in the world. No matter we purposes here, we're working hard to express ourselves in English here.But I stare at earning, too. - I regard it as a gift, no matter how much! But it always make me a little exciting! You know, you always need a aim, maybe the qty of response, or earning...That makes activities here more interesting!

I agree with you on the earnings part of it, as to me it is a bonus no matter how much it is, and it sure isn't a lot, but more than I started with, for sure. I agree that it does help those where English isn't their first language, and I have noticed users English getting better all the time. Yes, learnng is the main purpose for being here, as without it, we wouldn't know about other money making sites that will pay as well. I have learned about those in here, and I am glad for that, as I am making money from them too. Mylot is just a fun place to be. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

You are right as we do get an education here of sorts. We learn from others by sharing with each other our views, make friends, and the earning part is a bonus. I love the site too, and I am glad I am part of it. The ones that come in here and just post and don't really want to learn, are missing out, and what a shamee too. I am glad that you are learning and as that is what it is all about. I participate everyday in here, and I do what I can when I am here, but like you I am learning, earning and making friends, and enjoying myself at teh same time. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

the learnings we earn here in myLot can't really be measured with money... if you mean earnings in terms of cash, it's meager indeed in terms of time we spend here... but, in the process we get to learn many things interacting with variety of people, which are invaluable indeed...

Yes, I am talking about cash, and yes it is just a meere pittance and can't be measured as much as learing can. Howerver, I do think that when we learn of other sites where we can earn, then they really do go hand in hand. I am learning and earning, and that is good too. However, I find that the learning part of it outweighs the earinings, as I have made good friends here, and they are worth more than anything I can or will make in here. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

You are right that it has helped a lot with their English, and that is good too. I didn't know where to find money making sites either, and since I have joined here, I have made a little money, even though it isn't a lot. It is more money than I started with and more than I thought I would make online, that is for sure. I am glad that I have found the sites that I am doing as I am earnings, which is all that matters.

Hello rosekiss. I guess that quite all of us, at least in the beginning of their myLot experience, joined the site just because of the money incentive. But since the beginning was clear to me that the money I could earn here couldn't be so much. In effect I needed quite a whole year to reach my first payout (also thanks to a scammer that as revenge because I shown his scam to other people, followed me in so many discussions rating me with - reducing my reputation till 3! ;) but this is another story). What I loved about myLot was the incredible amount of informations is possible find here. Is thanks to myLot that I started to work on ciao.com, and always thanks to myLot that I learned so many things about online earnings, and about other stuffs too. And what keep me here in myLot is the great opportunity to improve my knowledge about the arguments I'm interested to. As Mr. Franklin said, the investment in knowledge is the one that pays the best interest.

I too felt the same way when I first caem in here, but like you, I realized that I wasn't going to make a lot of money, so it became less of an importane, and more of a bonus than the main reason for being here. I too, larned about other sites from users in here, and I am glad that I heard about them too, as it isn't a lot of money, it is better than nothing. I have gained so much knowledge in here, gained lot of friends, and I am having lots of fun in here as well, and that is what it is all about, is being able to share and learn. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, rosekiss. I've said it before, I came here to make money but I stay because of every other reason, fun, enjoyment, friends, interesting discussions, etc. It would be nice if it paid more, but it's sort of like the average job. They pay you just enough to keep you from going elsewhere. lol. I just wish I had more time to spend here. I can't even check in on MyLot anymore from work. They blocked it last week as a "social networking" site, so I can't even log in. I'll just have to be thankful for whatever time I do get.

Sorry to hear that you can't log in at work, but at least you can log in when you get home, and you are ablt to do something. I would miss coming here, if something came up and I couldn' come in at all, but you know though, I do come in when I can and do what I can when I am here, so that more than makes up for lot, and besides, I have a life outside of mylot, so I have to deal with that as well. Now that Christmas is coming, I won't be here all that much as I have to do my shopping for that. I am enjoying myself in here and sharing my views with others, and see where they sand on issues. the fact we have a wide diversity of cultures in here really makes mylot a special place indded. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I agree with you that myLot is one of the better paying sites out there. One of the key things I've discovered for making money on this site is to have more than enough friends. That way you have no shortage of people to respond to. This is a very good site! I'm just amazed at all the different topics of conversation that people come up with. That's the fun I get out of it! Have a great day! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

You are right that there are enough people on here that there isn't a shortage of discussons to respond to. The thing I have found at times though, are repeasts, but those are from the newbiws that are just starting out and they have now way of knowing that the discussion they posted has been asked and answered before. Yes, as long s we have frineds we have discussions to respond to, however, I don't respond to just my frineds and I help all I can. Thank you for your response, happy mylotting.
