Almost everyone here at MyLot is trying a few sites online to earn some extra money here and there for whatever reasons. Many users spend countless hours in front of their computer typing away and trying to earn a few extra dollars daily. I admire everyone who works online as a second job to help ease the burden of financial troubles and make some extra money. To all of those out there, do you find your online work has lost its fun factor and has now become something of a boring "must do" job you face daily? The only way I could stay focused earning online is making it fun and enjoyable. And yes to answer all those wondering, it is possible to earn online and its even possible to earn a nice amount but you need to work hard and for a while till you reach that stage. Best of luck to all in their earnings and happy MyLotting.

I do sometimes find it painful, but I don't do a lot of online earning. Just what my wife talks me in to doing, but I don't have a lot of time for it as it is only a little hobby for me. For my wife it is serious business she is really in to the whole earning on line things nad spends a lot of time each day doing stuff on line to earn money. She wants to help out with the finances while still be here for the kids.

That is great that she is trying to help out while balancing the kids and everything in. I really respect that. Online income for my husband and I is nothing we rely on but its just a nice bonus at the end of the month with the gift cards and PayPal cash and a few checks. Best of luck to you both.

I feel if we think of it more as an extra boost it becomes easier to earn as there is less pressure for us to earn big.

Yep earning online. It's become stressful for me but I find ways to get away from it. One way, and I'd recommend to others is to listen to music. Find a song you like and pull it up on youtube, just start listening to it and yes even getting up and dancing or just tapping your feet. Also take some time to play a game online or just take a few minutes to stretch your legs and look out the window. I still tend to get stressed, but coming back to mylot kind of soothes that stress a little, and everytime I think of what I do online and what it'll do for us, well that helps too.

It can be stressful when we are not having as much success as we had hoped but it seems you have a groove that is working for you which is great and I am sure the earnings are not as bad as it seems at times.

So far, I look at my online jobs as just for fun kind of activity. My earnings from doing this is still not comparable to even part time jobs in real life. For instance, I spend 3 or 4 hours just to earn $1. I only do this kind of activity when I have free time. Hopefully in the future I will be able to spend 1 hour a day on the web and earn $10,000 a month. I know someone out there does it. I just need to figure out how!

If you looking at it as extra income then you are going to have a lot more success as everything is a bonus and once you find your groove you will start to see bigger figures.

Earning big amount per month takes lot of time to reach, because you have to build each and every step of your foundation very strongly. It might take 1-3 years , for some lucky guys who find the new opportunity quickly and grab them their time period is considerably less.

All good things do take time, Rome wasn't built in a day after all.

Ive started the long haul of wanting to earn decent cash online. I have the ball rolling. Ive earnt a little after a couple of weeks. Its best to have your finger in as many pies as possible. Then you se the small trickles of cash coming in. When I have enough, I plan on investing in something. Maybe a website. Im not sure.

The start is always the hardest. I remember when I first started I was making $20 a month and month by month it started to increase. With the help of one of my blogs I managed to start earning nicely from Amazon Affiliate and have only good things to say about them. Maybe start a blog and give them a shot.

Yes of course I am boring that Now i had to earn online with the same routine. However, when I do get bored or fed up I alwyas take a nap and then go for a walk in the evening to ease the stress.

Try and change it around a little if you get bored and make it more exciting.
