I am active myLot user again and i am logging into this great website several times per day. There of course is very much interests we can choose to write posts and discussing several things, but still most of discussions here begins or ends with money. I mean it looks to me that 50% of all discussions here on myLot is related to money earning online and stuff like that. Do we realy need it? why dont we better talk about love, family life, traveling, car technical problems and many other things. Am i the only one who think that "money", "earn" and "cash" is used too often here?

Money without life... for what ??? Life without money... wow... dangerous!!! first time i joined this site because i reading an article about this site... in article said that this site like others general forum... but we can sharing anything what we feel, see, hear and anything else... and especially member will get earning... money is biggest human problems basicly... all people needed it... So i think, possible thing to taking other people attention is with how to get money... and related else... I think that is most reason why many people talking about money to getting people attention ... and than if you had got attention... it's mean EARNING MONEY... hehehehe

Thanks for sharing your opinion with us :) I agree with you that money is fundamental for living in our world, but when i wrote my post i wanted just to say that earning money by writing doesnt men that discussion, posts, articles texts must be about making money :)

Hi iDivision, You are not alone who thinks that way. Of late I too have been seeing more discussions about earning, making money and stuff like that but then if you take a look at the popular discussions, you would find that many of the popular ones are not about money and this proves that the people here at mylot are not just and only about money. It is just sad that many discussions are posted related to money making and that is why we get to see them often. Take a look at today's top discussions and you would find many non-money related discussions up in that section. Hope this helps.

I completely agree with you on this. My opinion is that if i will write in discussion tags "eran money" i will not be paid more than those who wrote anything else. Well paid will be those who will share their interests, hobbies,, things happened in their life, experience etc. :)

Hi iDivision, I am not quite sure of what tags would get better payments here on mylot but one thing is for sure, to get better payments, you have to have posts with more responses. And more responses are on other tags. So what you say might be true. I love mylot and it is more because of the fact that I can share my views and learn a lot more. Happy MyLotting

Some people here are interested only in earning money but that's there choice. Then some people here are joining because they want to learn something new. Then some people here like to earn money while enjoying the discussions. Now, I joined more than a year ago and I haven't earned some money. Then I stopped for a while then I'm back now because I like the discussions then maybe I can earn some money. I need money but not from mylot. Did you have a survey of some kind on how you came up with the 50%?

Dear friend, There are lots here who need money in life. It is really appreciated that a site like this is rewarding those who give better involvement. May be it is part of human needs that cash is really need in many cases. They work for cash, some enjoy their work. It boost many to be here and get participated.

My friend - i need money too, but still somehow i think that by making all discussions by one theme or interest we will never earn money here. Money is been paid for qualitative, interesting discussions with a lot of new, fresh information, not only for mentioning all possible earning ways in many hundreds discussions in one just day.

not me though... i have to be honest that at the beginning i am here just for the sake of the money... but as i stay here longer, i grow to love this place more and more... i learn new knowledge, make new friends and can relax myself here on top of earning extra money... so money is not my ultimate reason for being here anymore... take care and have a nice day...

It seems to me that you are happy with your earnings here and writing/reading in this website doesnt interfere any of your real life events. There is some days when i simply doesnt have time to read all mylot new discussions stuff, but also there is a days when i dont have enough power to do anything else besides of writing here.

When economy slips no one cares about anything but to have money from somewhere, big companys now adays dont stand behind their products, as long as the item sells they are happy.

So, you think many myLot users are here just for selling their writing abilities the sam as big companies do on trade markets?

Hi there! As for my side, I am not only interested in making money here in mylot. You don't instantly earn money here and it should not be considered as a stable source of income. I consider mylot as a place where I can learn many things from people around the world. And I enjoy participating in discussions here and reading the different thoughts of other people. It is indeed very helpful. Though I have also noticed that there are many discussions that refer to making money online or here in mylot. I guess it really just depends on the person on what he or she is interested in.

your comment is brilliant! for me money earning and simply writing, discussing and talking to other people is 50/50 here, but still i found this website because i searched for extra money income on internet. Now, when i am a regular member of myLot i can say that ia ma very satisfied with many discussions made by other users.

Yeah that is true, and most of all mylot helps us to have a companion and seeking the best answer to your problem, I may say that this kind of social networking is the easiest way to earn money, have a lot of friends, learn from the other experiences, overcome your problem, practicing english written communication, and open your vocabulary for doing your task especially in writing article.

I view this site as a sort of social site to have more fun with a tickle to earn a little money from all the activities we enjoy here. Sure, we can talk about anything here like love, family, dating and other topics that lift up every spirit in a positive mood. :)

Surely a lot of people especially right now needs money due to financial crisis.It's the only way to buy food and get some shelter.I think if the food is free then money will be not that so much interesting but for some reason,it's already part of our life.

yes, i agree with you! BUT this discussion is not about money role in our lives, but about too much discussions related to the same interests - money earning online.

I am sure that is not true. I do think, however, that people who are interested in making money online open more threads here. So maybe that is why it seems that way. I personally mostly discuss other topics, and I know others do too.

It is true that some people are only interested in making money. However, there are others who come on mylot for other reasons. Though, we have to also remember that some actually do somewhat that extra earning to be able to pay the bills and such.
