My first day with Mylot ..

September 2, 2010 1:41am CST
After a long day of work, of commenting on posts, of creating discussions & sharing some thoughts, Mylot gave an amount of 0.52$. First I saw it, I got shocked and I couldn't believe, but after few minutes, I refreshed my mind and decided to share my situation. To be honest with you, my lower estime was at least to have betwen 1$ and 1.5$, but 0.52$!! It is an other story & completely unfair compared to the work that I did .. So is it only me who lived his first day like that or there are many? how was your first day with mylot and what were your impressions? earnings?

I would be bery happy if I made .52 in one day on mylot. You must have worked very hard. Earning on mylot is not fast but this site DOES pay I can assure you that. I've been paid 2 or 3 times but at the slow rate that I go lol its taken me a few years to reach payout lol. I am determined to start posting more comments and discussions because there is no reason it should take me that long to make the $10 miniumum. I just have so many other sites that I do things with that it takes me forever on here and I get bored when I cant find good things to comment on. Sometimes its hard to come up with lengthly things to say.

I'm really not here for the money - it kind of helps me keep track of how much I'm doing really. I have had 18 cent rewards, I find the more unusual a search, the better the reward... and, no, making and adding friends doesn't make you money, but the more friends you get, the better responses to discussions, and the more discussions offered in your email, the more likely you will have things to respond to. Both of those make you money.

Shaggin, you got paid 2 or 3 times in two years! That's really interesting (lol).. You have to work little bit harder if you wat to reach the payout lots of times per year not only one or two times because it is disappointing .. Happy Myloting.

Yoneh08 yes you are right. If I really want to reach payout all the time I need to work harder at it. Mylot is just kind of a side thing though. I dont have time to devote to much time on it. Its slow earning and I have other things that are faster earning. When I'm done with the faster earning stuff I stop over to mylot just to see what the top things are for the day and possibly spend a few minutes leaving a few comments before I'm off to do something else. Thats why it takes me so long to earn on here I dont put that much time into it.

honestly, that doesn't sound too bad to me, I once put in over 12 hours of mylotting, and only made a dollar, and I have a lot of friends to respond to and to respond to discussions I start. Start good discussions, respond to other people's discussions so they will accept your friendship requests and do searches on mylot and maybe tasks, and you may too make a dollar - but you do have to work on it.

Wow 12 hours of working on mylot and only making one dollar. Thats sad lol. Adding friends and accepting friends doesnt earn you any money. What I do love is that if you become someones friend and they post a new discussion the discussion will come to your email. Thats a great way for me to see some discussions that I might be interested in without having seen them otherwise. I do searches a lot. Once in a great while I will earn a 1 cent bonus when doing a search. That always makes me happy but in the 2 years or so that I've been a member its only happened a handful of times.

12 hours !! I don't have that much of time to spend it on Mylot, and what for? only 1$! I usually spend one to two hours in the website, some days I don't use it at all .. it is true that I want to earn some money from it, but I don't want to put all my life on it just for few dollars! Thanks for your comment and have a nice day.

I don't normally have that kind of time either. In fact, we left the house this morning at 8 a.m. and didn't get home and back on the computer until after 9 p.m. Meanwhile, we did our bi-weekly shopping, took a cat to the vet, and went to visit the roomie's folks - that was what took the bulk of the time. I did get some beading done.

I wouldn't expect to make a living on this site my friend. It more if you just like talking with people like i do and making a little cash while doing it. I think its better to make a little on here then posting on places like yahoo buzz and making nothing!! lol! This is actually kinda cool site anyways and maybe I can buy some extra things every so often as well? It surely is not my living! haha!
4 Sep 10
I totally agree with you when you say that isn't for living. I use this website just in order to earn an extra cash (to be honest with you) and I was really disappointed by the low amount that I got in my first day, simply because, compared to the work I've done, it is nothing at all.. Anyway, thanks for your opinion and happy Loting.

Ya I just like talking with people about things and if I make a little cash while doing it? Great! Maybe in a few months I can buy a guitar book or something? haha!

I have been doing pretty good with Cash Gopher. It seems you can make about $10.00 a month the way I figure it by just letting it work for you. It does all add up using all these places.

if i make the same amount as you do in a day i will be glad... in my first day i guess i only earned $.02..
2 Sep 10
Wow! only 0.2$! so it seems that I'm the lucky one. But seriously, I dislike the fact of spending lot of time here, and as a reward, I get paid just with few cents! I try hard to make rich posts and very informative comments, at least Mylot should respect that by rising up the amount little bit. Don't you think? Thanks for your participation and have a nice day.

i think you are lucky Yoneh. You have not a star at all but you have gain that much. i only get 0.16 for one and half hour posting comments and discussion. it is tiring..i agree if you said that MyLot should rise the amount.
4 Sep 10
Yeah my friend, Mylot should rise the amount little bit. If it does so, It will encourage other people to post discussions and to take part in them. Like that, the whole forum will improve and people will be glade and little bit more actif (in a way)..I hope that you will figure out a way which will allow you to increase your earnings, till then, I wish you the best of luck. Happy Loting.

You made .52 in just one day? That is great. If you came here expecting to make a bunch of money, I don't think that will happen. Many people on this site are very pleased if they make the minimum for payout ($10) in a month. At the rate you are going, you will make $15, maybe a little more.
2 Sep 10
So it was good after all, the fact that I mad 0.52$. If I continu like this I will reach the minimum payout in 20 days which is extremetly a lot for just 10$!! Maybe I complain a lot but with this rate, i'm not going to earn a lot. Thanks for your participation, I appreciated so much.

Welcome to MyLot Yoneh08. That is pretty good for one day on here, especially when you have only just joined the site. You will never get rich from spending time on this site, but you can earn some extra cash and make some good friends here. It is the human interaction and learning that appeals to me the most. The money is just a bonus.
4 Sep 10
Yeah you're right. It seems that we don't earn that much of money.However, we can discover an other word of thoughts that may help us in inccreasing our knowledge.. Have a nice day.

Yes we can. I have learned many things in my time here and have made some good friends. I have also reached payout many times. They always pay every month on the 15th.

That is really quite good for mylot. My first day I made 15 cents. I do several posts every day and my earnings are coming along good. I am not going to mention what they are up to because we are not supposed to do that. It is against the rules. Do not be discouraged. As long as you come here and post often your balance will go up.

I dont know what I made the first day that I was on mylot. Thats been probably over 2 years now. I have kept a record from the day I made payout last time which was around June. Since that day I've averaged about 27 cents each day. I dont get that much time to put into mylot. I like to post a discussion and then post a picture to go with it that earns me 2 cents. Also if I comment on someones discussion and put up a picture to go along with my comment that earns me 2 cents. I love that because I love taking pictures and adding a picture is a fast way to earn a penny.
4 Sep 10
Which is sad for me, I'm not allowed yet to share photos with comments, and it sounds useful to pump up my earnings little bit. I wish you good luck for both of you. Happy Myloting.

If you are here only for the money, you're probably going to be better off doing something else. But you will meet a lot of great people here, so if you look at this as an opportunity to make friends, and earn a little extra on the side, you will probably be happier with it.
4 Sep 10
I think that I'm going to follow your advice. It seems that keeping like this will make "Mylot" little bit boring in the future, so why not figuring out some new features in it? why not using it for building new relations with people?..that sounds to me pretty funny .. Thanks for sharing your opinion and have a nice day.

haha! ya earn about 6 cents day? lol! But I am not on here to long each aday
4 Sep 10
You don't have to stay here for long hours, all what you have to do in ordder to perform your earning to their top is to be as much descriptive and informative as you could while responding to a topic or while creating a discussion. Make sure that your responses are free of all kind of mistakes. If you do so, believe me,by the end of the day you will be pleased by the amount gotten from Mylot (even if it isn't huge). Thanks for responding me and have a nice day.

Mylot is a place to meet with people from all over the world and take part in discussions covering anything you can imagine. The money is just a bonus. Do it for the fun and eventually you will make enough to cash out. If you are in it only for the money, it is not worth it for you.

It fun I have met a few good people already. And I get to see some views of other people as well which is kinda cool.
4 Sep 10
It seems that you are right and I think that I'm going to change my attitude through the website. As you have said, I should focus on having fun much more then focusing on getting money, and this latter will come for by itself by the time.. Thanks for the tip, I really appreciate it & have a nice day.

i did disappointed when i see my earnings at the first time. and i thought that i can't reach the payout. i take two years to take the payout. believe me, it is hard to earn here unless u have many referrals and doing some search in that upper tab.
4 Sep 10
It seems that you experienced the thing during your first day. It is really disappointing when you work hard: you answer with good comments and rich ones; you creat discussions that attract lot of people .. after all, you got paid with few cents.. Have a nice day & happy Loting.

Mylot is not a job although it can feel like it at times. First and foremost it is a discussion site that "shares" a little of its income with its members. There was a time when someone might make as much as $2 a day, but that was some years ago; as the membership grows so the revenue share seems to reduce. My advice is to concentrate on good quality discussions and enjoy yourself here. Happy myLotting.
4 Sep 10
Thanks for the advice. This is what I'm going to try to do from now on, as you have said, let's look up for the fun in discussions and let's enjoy ourselves in responding to topics, and why not in creating some of them. Happy Mlotting.

If you worry too much about the money you earn here on MyLot you will get burnt out fast. There are a lot of great people on this site and they are from all over the world. What you made your first day to very good, you should be happy. If you relax a bit and don't worry about the money, your earnings will still add up. Good luck.
4 Sep 10
I totally agree with you when you said that there are great people in this site. I think that I'm going to forget little bit the money and focus on having some fun over here, and I'll try also to share and discuss some thoughts from time to time.. Have a nice day & happy Myloting.

Hi there!! welcome to mylot.. you know what.., when i first got started here in mylot.., i felt a bit disappointed with the earnings too but now with the discussion environment.., people here are responsive and friendly.., if you read the FAQ page about how you earn here in mylot.., you will understand why you only earned that amount.., and as i can see you still have 28 posts since you got started so.., you can't expect that much already my friend.., being here in mylot is hard work.., and patience..,=)
4 Sep 10
It seems that you experienced lot of things with Mylot, and I think that I will follow your advice which recommends to be patient and hard worker. Concerning the posts, are there any advantages of having a big number of them? if it is an yes, can I have some explinations about how much should I have & how can I profit of them? Thanks for your participation and have a nice day. PS:I'll do my best.

hehe!my earning of mylot usually 0.01 every day.because i usually post one question or respond every day.i don't have enough time .it's funny and intresting!have a nice time!money is not a problem!
4 Sep 10
As you have mentioned, money is not a problem. I think I should focus on having fun more then on earning money. If I do so, not only I won't get bored with the website but also I'll enjoy myself while discussing and responding to others topics & at the same time I'll be paid some cash for this. Thanks for your participation and happy Loting.

Congrats to you but please keep in mind that contributing your comments and discussions is far more the assest as coming here specifically to make lots of money will not happen. I do not know what country you are from as I did not see that in your profile, so what I wanted to point out is that look directly at the bottom of your myLot page and when that clock resets to 00:01 it is the next day. It does not matter if your clock say different. I am on myLot time as I am from Us so if you look below it is 23:37pm, which means it is 11:37pm and still Thursday. So at 00:01, it is then Friday the next day. So what I am pointing out is that anything you post and or comment to after myLot's reset the earning will accrue for the following day of work, so if you are not on the same clock time then you will not see the earnings until the second day. This comes in handy as if you were posting after that reset there are earnings from your yesterday still not posted until tomorrow. Hope this helps. Congrats to you!
4 Sep 10
Thanks for the tip, I will pay attention to the clock from time to time, and I will try also to determinate the difference of hours betwen my country and the location of Mylot in order to know when my amounts will be counted and registered in my earnings page. Have a nice day & happy Loting.

my first day here in myLot was just fine. I mean, its not just the earnings that we are talking about here. Its how we share ideas and comments on topics. I dont mind the earnings. I just want to see other people's point of view.
4 Sep 10
You're making a point over here and I totally respect it. You are right when you say that earnings come in second place. We have, first of all, enjoy ourselves in Mylot via discovering people's views about events and life's concernes since it is an opportunity to do so. Thanks for the idea and happy Myloting.

In my first day,I got only 0.05 cents,so you're pretty lucky :)
4 Sep 10
I start thinking that I am lucky. After seeing all these responses, I think that I should be proud of what I've done and what I've earned. All what I have to do now is to increase little bit the hard work in order to reach the minimum amount in few days. It sound challenging that's what I like about it, but I'm going to try and see weither I'm going to make it or not. Thanks for sharing the information and happy Myloting.

Good for you, that is big enough compare than mine. In my first I've only earned .03 cents.lol.But I was totally happy that my earnings increased and I've proved that this is not a fake. But I didn't have much discussion posted and answered that day so I guess it's quite worth it. Good luck to us....
4 Sep 10
Yeah, it is like that. Your work determinates weither your amount is going to be high or low. For me, I worked hard during my first day, and I expected to earn a lot but it wasn't so. anyway, I'm going to keep up the hard work untill I reach the payout. I want to experience how it feels reaching the minimum amount for the first time. Thanks for your participation and have a nice day.

That amount is already quite impressive. Mylot does not apys a lot, but it pays. To bad it was below your expectations. Who knnows, you might achieve that amount if you work even more harder. I rarely achieve that amount in a days work in mylot.
4 Sep 10
It seems that I worked well after all. Now, all what I have to do is to be more serious in posting comments and opening discussions. Like this, I will improve my dailies earnings and so far my monthly earnings too. Thanks for responding me. I wish you the best of luck. Happpy Mloting.
