Posting Just To Earn

I don't know if all members here continue make posting just to earn. I am wondering if there's somebody continue post because they enjoy and have fun with the discussion. I think if you only post just to earn you cannot make it at all the time. If you make fun with other members, you will be surprise with your earnings after the update. I want to join any discussions that is informative and funny. Atleast you enjoy the discussion and you could also learn from the point of views shared by different members. Which do you prefer fun or earnings?

Hi Rose and nice rose avatar. I do respond/comment all day long whenever I am here. Every single day is fun for me. The more I can involve myself in the fun aspects the happier it makes me. I have also managed to turn some sad topics into a bit of smiley moments for the discussion starter. Therefore, I opt for fun, the earnings are simply a bonus.

Hahaha I love to see the post with smiley but me uhmmmm!!!just a sigh not allowed as of now. I want to have you smiley soooooon. Yes, I agree with you HWG! If you have fun with what you did, you are not aware that your earnings will be as high as mountain after the day. LOL

I often tell members not to track anything while on myLot. See each day is different and while some day it can be so overwhelmingly fun, there are slower days. Therefore any tracking may seem like a chore and hence disappointment kicks me. Hi mysd

Yes, my wings are moving. This is not the same image I wanted at first. The one I originally wanted wouldn't work... but I decided just to keep this one that works. I like it! ^_^ I don't think it is flying... just flapping it's wings and blinking. :-)

I prefer both! I absolutely love MyLot, and having fun with all my fellow MyLotters. Who doesn't like discussing and making new friends? :D Its very rewarding to learn new things all the time, as well as see other peoples views and opinions. :-) Of course, earning for having fun is great too! It's not the main reason I participate though. The earnings are just a bonus. :-)

I think I forgot to say - welcome to myLot! It's so easy to have fun if we forget that we are earning. If we concentrste on the earnings they just don't add up so it's just best to forget them!

Hi Rose! I don't post just to earn... if I were to do that, I'd be responding to tons of discussions that didn't even interest me, just to post "something." I spend much more time reading than posting, actually. I respond where I feel I have something to contribute, where I'm not going to say the same things as 20 other people before me or where the subject matter is fun or interesting to me

Hi RiverTigress! Great to meet you and welcome to myLot! I've been here for about five years and I've often had the thought you expressed... "I'm doing this wrong"... I know that I could be earning more if I just sat down and responded to one discussion after another, without much regard for what I was actually saying. I prefer to think through my responses and comments because I am truthful in all that I post here and, if I am sharing an opinion, I try my best to be helpful. Just as an aside, you might like to peruse the Tasks section here at myLot. From time to time, there are some worthwhile writing tasks posted (look specifically for SharonBucks... her tasks are reasonable in terms of the compensation for time invested ratio and payment is reliable ). I've made a good majority of my myLot earnings via her writing tasks. There are lots of other tasks posted that I am not the least bit interested in (like Facebook "likes" and sign-up stuff) but I look for SharonBucks on a daily basis. I hope you really enjoy your time here!

Hello TOL (thinkingoutloud) That's what in my mind to respond alot of discussions to start earnings. When I read the discussions above with mysD, HWG and other...my mind now is open and follow what they did.

Well I think it's just the same with real life work. If you don't enjoy working you'll probably end up quitting the job itself. Same is true with myLot. If you just post to earn and not have fun, you'll probably end up quitting already. A good rule is to work not for the money but to work for the "living". No individual in good sense will continue to do what he doesn't want to do. There will always be a time he/she will get fed up and just stop doing that thing. Just my two cents.

Hi Rose! I don't think about the earnings when I am here but I do look for fun most of the time. When I join in and have fun, the earnings take care of themselves Sadly too many seem to think that they are 'at school' and they must get things right or they will not get results. There is not fun in a classroom, except for when it's the interval. If everyone realised that myLot is the interval then there would be a lot more happy customers

So now I must think that I have fun here and no earning at all. Hehehe So far, in my observation I earn more on the thread we make last time than keep responding only in different discussions.

When I was newbie here I am thinking about the earnings. SO what I did I always roaming around and try to find discussions that belongs to my interest. That was a big mistakes because the more you are eager to earn it results a very low earnings. But lately I found out that you should make fun first before you will get the best results. What veterans myLotters did, I follow and I am amaze the best results.

I saw your comments earlier here. You have missed out on so much my friend We comment and our number doesn't increase - but our earnings DO! That's what counts as discussing and that is what we are here for and what myLot wants us to do because that is what they pay us for. The more you comment the more fun you have because you get involved with other Lotters and make lots of friends - and the earnings look after themselves!

yes I missed alot with your discussions with other Lotters. I wanted to follow all your discussion but I can't. Very busy with job. Better today I am given off my Boss but most of it I spend to my bed.

Just as long as you have realised now how to get the best out of the time that you spend here, all will be well, and you will notice the difference too - unless you spend all day in bed of course!

Hi Rose888, I'm rather greedy and I would like to have fun here as well as getting more earning too even the earning is rather wee. Though it's an impetus to push us to move further. Other than the initial few months when I was new here, the rest of the time since then I could say I log in here almost every day except when I was unwell or having vacation. The fun I acquire here keeps me stick to it. There are lots of fun to join in discussions where we can come across friends who like to create and have fun in many aspects Have a nice day

well for me i like to earn at same time you are enjoying in my lot vice versa, and also sharing of different opinion, thoughts, ideas even we were in different part of the world, how we connect our ideas....and also it is nice because we were posting different topics sometimes we were related,and it is nice to know that some people experiencing that one also...

Now that could be a topic for a new discussion! I was baout to say that the age range here is from 16 upwards and the top rated Lotter is indeed a lady in her 80s as you can see here: http://www.mylot.com/w/topusers/1.aspx Offline I doubt we could all get together and discuss and have fun while doing so too

I found many here just posting to earn. They do not bother to wording well their discussion and often they were just a copy from an internet news and paste it here with a slightly changed title. You can also see them from how they did not bother to comment back on the responders and mostly they do not even bother to respond on others' discussions.

You can have a perfect blend of fun and substance by responding and commenting in such a way that users gain knowledge and enjoy the interaction all at the same time. I find there are 3 ways here. For those who only look for earnings, those who look for earnings and fun and those who only look for fun. Make your choice young lady!

As you can see in the first page of this discussion, you can read a very long interaction. That one of example that both of the member who participate have fun to the ideas and opinions being shared. Hehehe

Since none of the users know how earnings are calculated and which responses are considered worthy of earnings your guess is as good as mine.Anyway to each his/her own. One has choices here as I have pointed out in my response above. I like your enthusiasm. I see you have just joined. Welcome aboard! You will do well here. One needs to read faqs and guidelines and that is where one learns everything.

Most people joined Mylot because of the money and afterwards they discoved the other sites of MyLot like interesting discussions, friendships and fun. In my case it was the other way around. When I joined MyLot I had lots of experience from online discussion sites (non-paying sites) and no online money making experience. I joined because I thought that the site looked interesting. I noticed that there were many different topics and many members and I wanted to participate in the discussions. After a while I discovered that the extra money was nice I love the fact that we get paid for participation, but it wasn't the reason why I joined.

Not all members become addicted to myLot. Sad to say I saw some old post that the poster are no longer active and I saw their total number of post more than 10,000 already. I am wondering why they stop having fun here. I won't promise to stay here for all of my life but if the situation permits me to stay, I prefer to stay. I enjoy, I learn and most of it I earn. Right?

i agree with your ideas, but i think its alright if we can enjoy what we do on mylot, and also earn money while doing what we enjoy, shouldnt this be the purpose of why we put up discussions on mylot??

The earning is the big bonus for all of us. Even we won't admin that money is not our main priority here but if we receive our payment we are very happy. I didn't experience yet how a feeling of being paid by myLot but base on the testimony of veterans, I main old member here. They felt very happy on the day they receive their payout. I think you also not yet receive your first payout. We will make a party on our first payout. Hehehe

I think your post should be the first thing new members can see! I came here to earn some money and I thought: Posting some things and get money, easy going! But it is hard just to earn here. Its better to see myLot as a community where you get a little gift for having fun talking about nearly everything! Just imagine how much time you could spent just in the photo area just to find many good photos or even funny things! Even if the size of the photos is a bit small in my opinion but that is complaning on a high level (Its a german saying hopefully it works in english too) So I prefer having fun now and thats what everybody should have here ;) Small question by the way, is it possible to hide the earnings? I don't want to see it all the time :P

Yeah I agree better to stay more hours here than any other site. myLot is the only program I joined because of time limitations. In my free time most of the time I come here to participate with other myLot members. There's no way to hide your earnings. I a thinking also this idea and only reveal 5days before month end but there's no feature like that. Hehehe

Well, to be honest, I first started to post here because of the money (don't we all???) But now it's like a good place to vent, learn things, and ask for advise, and I'm not judged here for just being me. I think it's awesome that there's a place where we can share our lives and not have to be judged, and to get valuable information on things that mean to us the most. I'd really like to thank MyLot's admins for opening up this place and making it a friendly place, and I really, truly mean it, too. And thank you all my friends for accepting me and providing good answers that I'm looking for, too

Alot of people consider myLot as their gate away from any stress and problems. If ever I have some questions and doubts I am thinking to bring it here and ask all my friends some opinions and advice.

Well I'm brand new to myLot, and I joined as a way to make an extra profit in my spare time. But as I've been exploring the site I already see how much fun I'll be having starting and joining discussions. I like reading peoples opinions, and enjoy giving my own. I hope that this site will be a way for me to vent, connect, and earn simultaneusly!

Like you, I am also new here. I cannot say how many hours I can spend everyday posting, interacting or participating to some of myLotters discussions but as long as I have time I will spend it here. I enjoy connecting with different members opinion. Hope you will stay longer here.

Realistically I don't think you could come on here just for the earnings it's about 5 cents a day for me and probably a dollar for regular contributors so I certainly like to think people are here for the fun. It's also nice to have meaningful discussions rather than the rubbish people post on other social networking sites. Here is a great place to talk with people who share genuine interests the earnings barely even matter :) well thats my opinion anyway.

Hello SamLund, I agree with you. Instead of wasting your time to different socialize network whom the Owner only become rich much better here because Admin give us bonus in rewards of our activities.

hi rose888 lovely avatar I enjoy and have fun mylotting and kibitzing at times on others comments too,just let us keep the discussion going and furthering it.Also I can use the earnings I get but they are the frosting on the cake for me here. I have learned if I enjoy what I am doing and add to the fun I will earn a lot more. so fun yes indeed and money second.
