Hello Lotters, Just wanted to know how did you join here and when, it's not much to asked since i know it changes our lives getting to know these site. am sure a lot of you have stories, but of course, it's not that much but i like to hear it anyway. did you join and became some one elses referral or did you join because you clicked or type mylot website. usually people would see mylot in blogs. therefore banners are used that have referral links that leads to mylot. *Well, i joined here under my friend who used to be my referral em]rofl[/em]. but during my old account i checked a strange comment coming from a person pretending to be a woman that i ended up here. and the upline was a man but i hated him because he didn't guide me into anything. i had to go trial and error just to avoid violating rules again. then, there was this topic that i filled it with foul language, that led to it's deletion. waiting for 3 months my old account never reinstated. instead, i made this.* So what's you're story? Views? Have a great day

I think mylot was close to a year old or just over when my friend who received Kim Komando's newsletters pass on her info on this site. Since I trusted my friend and Kim, I signed up and that was 4 years ago..Wow...

I joined Mylot in September 2008. I was looking for some easy ways to make money online. At some point, I came across a Squidoo article that talked about several ways that someone could make money online for free. It just so happens that this very site was one of the places the article talked about. It sounded fun and easy so I decided why not and joined. That was a little over two years ago and obviously have stuck around since then.

Well my friend just invited me here and I met her only on the online dating game and after that I got interested on how she is working part time here and after that she will get the payment that she made posting here. I am so inspired to see her how she write here and comment to those post. I will not mention her name but I like her strategies.

Hello Khenshie09, Wow really, so what happened? did you two date or what? that would have been nice if there's a chance that both of you will be seeing each other off line. there's nothing wrong with mentioning her name but it's nice that she was able to drag you here, and it's great. welcome to mylot and have a great day.

My friend at Yuwie, Mike Mullins invited me to join here. He held an activity contest among his friends, to give him comments in his blogs, pictures, videos at all sites where he was a member. I won that contest with a 100 dollars as the grand prize. Being his referral here gain me some points for the contest as well. He used to tell me there are so many filipinos at mylot and you'll enjoy the discussions. True enough but he became inactive as he'd been so busy with his radio shows. He passed away two months ago, his memories stay however, and an unending gratitude for bringing me here at mylot.

I bought my computer in February 2009 and I joined mylot in March of that year. The way I heard about mylot was on youtube. I was looking for a way to supplement my income online. I know you don't make much on mylot but I thought every little bit helps and I thought I would give it a try. I had been watching and listening to the videos on youtube every since I got this computer.

Hello Knight. I don't remember exactly how I joined my lot but the information I recollect is I read about my lot in some forums and decided to give it a try, Initially I was here with the motive of making money, but later I started enjoying my lot very much and realized that if you come here with the motive of making money then you are sure to get disappointed as the earnings are slow here. But You get to know so much from my lot and the discussions here are a real pleasure to participate. You won't enjoy this much in other forums like my lot. I now have a referral who happens to be my friend and he is also enjoying here and says he doesn't bother about the earnings. He also thanked me to have introduced to such a wonderful forum like my lot :). I definitely look forward to be active here forever :) Have a great time ahead :)

Hello moneyspinner, "You won't enjoy this much in other forums like my lot" That is very true there. probably those who have steady jobs are really not openminded into these things. even to some of my friends doesn't have time to rspond. but i might try to asked later when i am done with the nap. thanks.

Yeah I totally agree many people including those who have steady jobs are not at all openminded about these things. I have seen people who can post in social networking sites but don't bother to post here :D.

I came across MyLot while I was looking for ways to promote my blog. I took a look around, joined and decided it was not for me. I stayed away for around a month and when I returned I decided to join in a discussion and, because I was having computer problems at the time, I posted a discussion asking for computer help. I received many good responses and decided this was not a bad place after all! The rest is history as they say...

Hello Paula, well, they are all around the world. i am glad that you made the choice, or i wouldn't have one of nicest persons around in this site. guess they were a different group of people exist then. am sure, if i rest for a long time and comes back later after 2 years, definitely going to have different kinds of users.thanks for sticking around. have a great day.

I can't remember how it happened that I found out about Neobux. I joined Neobux then I started to search more informations about it. And that's how I came across an article about a Neobux strategy, and it happened to be a discussion in myLot. I saw that every user that responded to that discussion said "happy mylotting" or "happy earnings" and I start wondering what happens here. That's how I found out that myLot pays for what its users write, so I signed up in myLot. It happened almost four months ago, and the decission to join myLot really changed my life.

No, nothing like this. I just found that discussion about Neobux strategy here, and I figured out myself that myLot pays for discussing. So here I am, glad to be a myLotter. Me too I learned a lot of other online earning schemes from here. When I joined myLot, I didn't know nothing except for the Neobux site.

Hi Letran! I have been here now going into my fourth year. I found mylot purely by accident. I had never been on a site like this before. I was research another site that I thought was a scam site and somehow I ended up here and haven't left. I started making friends right away and having fun, and the little bit of money didn't help either. I started learning about other people's cultures and things just kept getting more interesting and they still do!

Hello Opral26, that's good to know. am glad you didn't leave. well, they were rumors that you left but i saw one of your post few weeks back so i know you're active.I've been here for almost two years,and still the discussions are interested as it used to be. the difference is that am a bit busy responding to discussions. have a great day.

I joined because one of my friend said about it and I love experimenting. But anyways this experiment resulted into a long friendship with my lot.

Hellop gunjanpri, what do you know, such good experiment turned out to be a good and nice hobby for you. yeah, i got good friends here, unlike in other social networking sites.i got to know them and talked to them in a messengers.

My story is rather very simple. I was able to join myLot because an officemate of mine told me about this site. A forum that actually pays you to respond and post. It intrigued me. I signed up then I did not immediately post because I had no paypal account then. After about 2 or 3 months of being inactive, I was able to open a paypal account last month. From then on, there's no stopping me now..I just post away.

Hello hippiemom, Well, i started posting in mylot even though i wasn't aware of paypal yet. actually, i thought alertpay was paypal so i got confused and gave a huge misinformation about the merchant pay in my discussion. but of course, the long wait there for me was waiting for my Union debit account.it's nice to have you around.

I did a search for Work at home jobs. Although I realized early on that MyLot would not replace a job, I came to love the interaction with my friends and learning so much. I like to think I help others as well.
• Philippines

Hello Gardengerty, well, some people think it's a job. but for me, it's just a hobby that allows me to earn money when ever i need it to. yeah, i love the interaction too, didn't think i can actually talked to any one here and make a real discussion of things in life. it's the only site where i can talked to people.

hi letranknight I joined more than three years ago as I was off here for 11 months due to some bad catastrophes in my own life. I remember you were bere when I started then seemed to be gone awhile. I lucked into my lot as I was looking for something worthwhile as I was newly forced to retire. I was angry for loss os my income b ut had my social security, needed something that would be worth spending time and found mylot. I was gung ho on earning. I used to mylot to 2 pm and I made forty dollars a month for awhile.I came here really angry as I was laid off only because I was 79.I was physically fit .the branch managed wass then fired because she illegally laid me off for my age which headquarters of the library system deem it age ism. But when I got an offical letter reinstating my they were ,ironically. a tad late. I was in the hospital due to a fractured shoulder and surgical implantation of an artifical shoulder joint.So I had lost most of the use of my left arm so their offer I could not take. I then was furious and when I foung mylot I really felt good about mylotting. Myview is that mylot saved my sanity as I felt angry at the world and hated being jobless and having all that time and little money.

No one referred me, I don't think, but I somehow heard about the site when I was searching for ways to make money online! I was doing things like GPT sites and survey sites and whatnot, and just decided to try this site out. I'm happy I did!
• Philippines

Hello maezee, oh, alright that's good to know. probably if i didn't search that strange comment from friendster, i wouldn't be here in the first place. i never really tried the survet sites, although i registered, but i wasn't sure if i can stay that long since it's not that good looking to me. thanks.

Hello Gracie, Mylot was the first online money making site that i have been thoroughly active to. i did get to know yuwie, but some how it wasn't quite friendly and i never got the chance to fully explore it. well, it's nice that you still get to be active here even though you are at schooling. have a great day.
