Hi mylotter: I thought I would pick this topic, because I have noticed that so many users will stress out when they don't reach payout, or they don't do as many posts a day as they thought. Well, I am here to tell you not to worry about it, and just have fun. When you start stressing about earnings. then you lose focus on what mylot is all about. We need to realize that mylot is for sharing what we know with those that don't, and they share with us. It is all about gaining knowledge. If you are comiing in here and not doing either then, maybe mylot isn't for you, as it isn't about the earnings, as they are just a bonus and secondary to what is really important. I am talking specifically to the newbies who keep asking how to earn in here. Sure I am here to earn lie everyone else, but I don't make it my life, although it does take money to survive, but in here we don't make all that much anyway, so I am telling you all, just don't worry, just have fun, and you will enjoy your time here much better. For the newbies out there, take it from me, mylot is a fun place if you just give it a chance and go with the flow. Everyone have a good time and happy mylotting.

That is good advice, though I do tend to become more active as I see the end of the month coming and I haven't reached my payout. But now that I have, I know I can take it easy, once I do flow with it, I find that I do earn the money and sometimes more than I thought I could earn..

I didn['t make payour for April, but I knew I wouldn't as I just didn't do as much as i usually do. I will just get paid more in June, and that is okay with em. I am not here for earning as much as I am for learning anyway. I do enjoy mylot, but lately, it has been hard to find discussions to respond to, and that has really left me discouraged, but I intend to just keep going anyway, and things will turn around someday, I hope. thank you for taking the time to respond, and happy mylotting.

I love the things I learn here. For example if it wasn't for one mylotter sharing a link on how to treat poison ivy, I'd be itching like crazy right now..:)

Hi Rose. I really agree with you that mylot is a fun place to be with. I'm here seeing discussions and responding to all that interests me. I'm not that too hype about the earnings for just like you said, it's just a bonus. I'm seeing mylot as a stress reliever. Although there are lots of social sites so popular out there I still considered mylot as the best one for in here I can learn, talk with friends, argue with everyone, and of course earn some pennies. It's great to be a member of mylot. :D

When it comes to earning in here, we don't really get all that much, so we really shouldn't fret about it, and have fun. I find that when I don't worry about it, and come in here and post, then by the end of the day, I have done far more than I ever thought I would. I never anticipated making all that much in here anyway, and I hope that the newbies will find that otu too, and just go with the flow, have fun, and enjoy themselves. Thank you for your responses, and happy mylotting.

Yes I've also experienced that. There was this day where I was just responding to discussions which interests me a lot. I was really enjoying jiggling as I am typing up my response and as the earnings was updated I was really happy with my earnings. I wasn't even trying to earn. Or I'm not thinking of earning at all. All I was up that day was the fun. Happy mylotting rose. :D

It's good that you have noted this. I couldn't agree more. We should all just have fun in sharing our opinions and experiences here, not really aim for the pay. Otherwise, we wouldn't be enjoying this and it was a waste of time signing up. I mean, I still consider myself new here, I haven't even reached pay out yet, but I don't push it hard to earn this way only for I know that our earnings here are just incentives of what we already love to do online.

You know, when I first came in here it was all about the money, but as time went one, I realized it wasn't just about the money, and it became secondary to me. I come here to have fun, and learn from others, and I have been able to do just that, and I am so glad too, as I have really beeen getting something out of mylot, and that is what it is all about as well. You gget out of it just what you put into it. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

You are absolutely right. At the first time, I joined myLot for make some extra money. Till I find that this site is unique. It's not all about money. I get more precious than money. I am happy when find that my earning is increase but I feel more happy when my discussion get respond. Well, this is mylot, you will get sharing your experience and even share your opinion from deepin your heart.

You are so right. The money we make here doesn't compare to the knowledge that we can gain. It took me a bit to rewlize that, as when I first joined, it was just for the money. I am glad that I changed my way of thinking on that, as I would be missing so much of what mylot is all about and I wouldn't get anything out of it. This way, I am getting a lot out of mylot everyday, and I hope to continue doing so for years to come. Thank you for your respoonse, and happy mylotting.

That's true. I learn from those who write well and those who write poorly. Expressing yourself while earning. Sigh! Heaven on Earth. Viva mylot!!!

It would be funny if we all felt the saem, and I wolodn't want it any ohter way, as that is what makes mylot so unique. I love giving my views and learning as well. Thank you fro your response, and happy mylotting.

You are so right, and I hope that others will realize that someday too. We really don't make all that much in here anyways so I just don't understand why others have to stress out about earnings in here. They are really missing out on what mylot is all about when they do that. It is like I said in the idsucssion, that if they are here to just post, to earn and don't plan on getting anything out of it, then mylot isn't for them. I just wish they would come in here and plan on having fun. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

You are right about some discussions being silly, as I have seen some, and what is so funny, they seem to get more responses than the ones that are sensible. It really doesn't make sense to me. I am just glad I get any responses at all. I am not here for earnings either, but I know some are, and that is why I started this discussion, to let those that feel that way, aren't getting out of mylot what they should. We just don't earn all that much to even owrry about one penny of it, and I don't and when I forget about my earnings, then I just sit back and relax and do my best in here to share with others my views. We should all do that as we would all have more fun if we did. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Hello Rosekiss, I totally agree with you. This is a place to learn about whats going on all over the place and to also try to help others by giving out our opinions or help on certain topics. We certainly wont be able to pay our mortgages with Mylot, so why go crazy over it. I take it one day at a time, look for discussions that interest me and try to answer as best I can.

I am the same way, as it does no good to go nuts over the earnings which isn't much anyway. It really makes no sense to worry about it when we should just come in here to have fun, and that is what it is all about anyway. I have also helped a lot of usedrs who needed it and I will continue to do so, as if I can't help then I might as well not be here. that is the way i feel anyway. Thank you for your response and happy mylotting.

Great advice. You hit the nail right on the head. When I'm posting and commenting on topics which I enjoy and want to learn about I don't even worry about my earnings. The plus side is you end up posting more this way and instead of it being a job, it becomes a learning tool. The secondary benefit is that your earnings do go up because you are more active, but like you said that is not the main reason for posting and commenting on mylot. I hope all the newbies take your advice, so they will have a good time here on mylot from the start.

I certainly do agree with you on everything. I do the same thing, as you just post, enjoy myself, and don't worry about my earnings at all. I feel that learning is more important and really when it comes to learnings, you can't place a value on it as it is priceless. I do hope so too, that eh newbies will read this and they will find the same peace and knowldege that we have learned in here. Thank you for your response,and happy mylotting.

Great advice. You hit the nail on the head. Plus, when your having fun you can keep posting and commenting and time will just fly. Instead of working it becomes a learning experience. The times I have seen my earnings go up is when I have not worried about how much I was earning and just found those topics which I enjoyed reading about and discussing. I learned this by trial and error, but hopefully all the newbies will follow this advice, so they will have a wonderful time here on mylot from the start.

I have found too that when I didn't worry about my earnings and just had fun, I would end up doing better than if I had worried or set a goal each day. This is just a good place to be and I have enjoyed my time so much here, and I hope to coninue as well for a very long time. I hope that the newbies will herd this too, as that is why I started the topic as I know they come here for just the earnings, but htey will learn in time that is is much more than that. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

That's indeed a good advise from you Rosekiss,some users put pressure on themselves trying to get into their target, for me i enjoy sharing my views and participate not thinking about how much i get back in return , i have learned so much about different discussions and topics and that is all enough for me,yes we can be happy when we feel we did our best at least we tried our best to get paid,striving for cents is really so much fun and i enjoy it...Lol Have a nice day!

You know, you are right as the knowledge we gain here is worth much more than than what we make in here. At first, I didn't know what to think, but as time went on, I realized, that I had gain much and it has become an enjoaybe experience all the ay around. I have never regretted my decision to join mylot that is for sure. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

I'd have to agree with you. As for me, I might make about 40 cents a week on the site. I'm in no hurry. There are so many other paying programs that I belong to that I don't stress. Maybe a lot of newbies stress so much because they don't belong to many other programs out there. I don't know. Have a great day! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

I am doing other sites too, besides mylot, so I am not trying to push myslef to make a certain amoount a day, however, it is nice when I do. I think that is the whole thing though is that ween we don't worry about it, we don't get stressed out, and i certaqinly don't need that especially at my age. I am here to help the newbies and that is why I started this to let them know they don't need to stress out about their earnings. They should just have rfun like we are, and they will be furprised how fast their ernings will multiply. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

hi rosekiss, i agree with you in toto. Mylot is a fun site where you can post discussions, respond to dicussions and also get to know about many things since we are all from different cultures, communities, speaking different languages, following different religions, different countries and so on and so forth.where else and on which site can you interact with so many people, make friends and also earn some money even though it isn`t much. However every penny counts as in todays world we are losing monetarily than gaining due to many reasons.So the best thing is to do it a, keep our worries and difficulties aside and just enjoy it.Happy mylotting.

That is what makes mylot so unique is that we are all form different countries, speak different languages, and different religions, or none at all. You are right though, that every penny does count, as I can use all I can get, but on the same hand, I don't push myslef like some do to do more than what I can. I just sit back and enjoy meylse, and I am glad you are too. That is what it is all about anyway. Thank you for your response, and happy mylottingl.

High rosekiss, I also think myLot is the place of making fun and exchange of views. The money we earn from this site is very negligible. The gain is we get many friends here and can share with them our thoughts and knowledge. I'm not a English speaking person. Mylot is giving me the scope to learn English and it's vocabulary. It's also schooling for me. My friends are my teacher. I'm thankful to my fellow members.

For not haviing English as your first language, you are doing very well, and you can surely thank mylot for that. It really is a leaning experience for all of us, and the knowwledge we can gain here will never ever be forgotten. I have also made lots of friends. whicle sharing and learning. Like you, I don't put an emphasis on my earnings because that takes all the fun out of it. I just go with the flow and hope for the best. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

Thanks for the reminder rosekiss. I do enjoy it here, as I have found a lot of friends with more than kind words to give when I needed one. Of course there are earnings, but I think the discussions and the friends are the best. The earnings are just icing on this myLot cake. And it's fun too.

You have the right idea about the earnings. That is why I started this discussion to remind users that the earnings are just secondary and it is so minimal anyway, that you really can't make a lot here, but it does add up over tiem. I am glad that others can see what I am saying and are here to have fun just liek me. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.

You really said what myLot is really about my friend, and that it is about making New friends, learning about things you may not always know about, and earning a little extra along the way. Yes, it is nice if you can reach payout in here each month, but at the same time if you are not Super active that can be a hard thing to do here as well. All I can say is have Fun, enjoy being a member here and good things will happen. And the good thing is your earnings will roll over as long as you are active, so if you do not reach payout in here this month, there is always February to try for it as well.

You are right as when I first started, I had a hard time getting the payout, and I didn't get it the first month, but I did the next which make it much higher. I really didn't worry about it after than, as i figured if I made it fine, but if I didn't that is fine too. I ahve been able to make it every month since hhen, but I have had to put effort into it as I have no referrals. I have been having a lot of fun in the process, and I hope to continue to do so. I have learned to go with the flow and have fun. Thank you for your response, and happy mylotting.
