No offend to all the users here. I just want to vent. Sometimes I feel mylot is boring even though there are a lot of topics to comment and need replies. Sometimes it makes me browse and browse and end up with nothing to do. Sometimes I can say" I'm just wasting my time." For me, topics that are easy to understand and interesting are necessary to catch our attention. What about you? Do you experience it sometimes?

Well I will disagree with your title totally because for me mylot is the best place where I not only learned so many new things but also I learned how to write and how to present a thinking process. I think for me mylot is the one who taught me how to write and how to explain your point of view. So you have to bring some good and interesting topics just like you bring today and make sure you have friends who can post answers against your topic and during that try to have fun and never think about earnings but learning is the best available thing on mylot

Hi isloooboy! Thanks for your comment. I do agree with you, mylot is the best site ever when it comes to learning, making friends and earning as well. I just feel boring sometimes. Yeah, interesting topics is all we need in order for us to keep going. This topic is interesting? Thanks for the praise. Sometimes we need it and people like you too to keep us motivated. Cheers!

I truly don't find it boring so far. There are so many people here of different interests and different episodes in life whose reaching out to friends even if they don't know of matters. And there are many times that when someone needs advice and it is a good feeling to some way help, because reaching out and communicating and getting and sharing valuable ideas makes us feel as though they are close families. And who knows that if some of these people who are especially depressed are alone in life and at least sometimes they have something to do and some worthy people to talk to. And if I should ever get bored or think that I am wasting my time (which I know won't happen unless I'm going for something more important like taking care of my baby after having labor), then I should have to take my graceful exit and not bother airing my boredom that might hurt a lot of members.

I got your point thetis! Yes, mylot allows us to reach out to other people through giving our own point of view. Sometimes it may cheer us up. Sometimes it may enlighten our mind. Some make us smile and forget about our problems in life. I am glad your enthusiasm of being here is still high. I hope you will not get bored like I do sometimes. Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding this matter.

hello, So, if you feel bored dont do any reply in mylot or dont browse anymore because in the end you will still be bored if you are not happy doing some thing here then you can stop it. right? Sometimes I also find myself like that but I just stop and rest for a while because I know I will just end up nothing.

This happens to me sometime. That is why I often take a break from mylot. Sometimes for a week or 2 or maybe a month.. I keep checking in, but I will be busy for a week or 2 and then I get bored again.. I just make sure to not go too far or for too long so I don't lose the money that I earned so far.

That is true. Maybe if I am very active this month I can reach payout by the end of the month. I only make payout maybe 2 or 3 times a year... but at least it's here for us when we need it.

Hi meticulo! Yes that is what I felt last year when I am still new to the site. I found it boring because they keep asking the same question and the topic itself looked kind of boring. That's last year story. Now I found it interesting and thanks to all my friends in my list for starting a good discussion everyday. The best way to make the discussion looks interesting is the way we answer the topic. Most of the time I just read topics and write comments from my friends' topic as we already know each other so the conversations is much more interesting. If we just like talking to ourselves, plain conversation, we will find that it is exactly boring!!(^^) I rarely start my own discussion and it already more than a month without new discussion so I find friends who like to start discussions and have a fun conversation here. I know you know that very well as you've been here longer than I am, right??(^^)

I'm glad you got the motivation to keep going CTHanum! Yes, our friends here have the big part in our quest to find good topics and conversations. So it's good also that we choose our friends well... Maybe I've registered first but you must have stayed longer because look at the number of posts you have. Anyway, keep movin' friend! Happy mylotting!

It is not as many as posts by other members. There are some other mylotters who can reach that number of posts in just a short time. You are actually made more posts sis since you started many discussions here so who knows you are actually post more comments than me??(^^) Keep moving and happy mylotting to you too~

Hi meticulo! I feel that way sometimes! There are really those days when I can't find any interesting discussions where I can reply to. I keep on browsing and browsing but there is nothing. And I have experienced times that there have been no new discussions posted within a few minutes. It's really a wonder how can that happen when there are lots of members here. And, unfortunately, my discussions under my interests do not get much attention probably because it is very specific and those that usually comment on my discussions under that interest are currently inactive. So it adds to my boredom, too. That is why I'm really glad if my friends keep on posting new discussions so I can have new discussions to reply on.

I agree with you secretbear and when the topics that we started turned out unnoticed, it would add to our boredom. Anyway, it's just a part of life. I guess it's a normal feeling. It's not always like that. There are days when we find like on the go and ready to post again. Happy mylotting!

Sometimes I get bored with even my most favorites sites so I do understand but I think you can still find a topic that will interest you. I tell you what I do sometimes; I am always needing information on something so I start my own topic to get advice from others. For example, I needed advice on what program to get for video editing so I just asked in a new discussion and got a lot of great responses. I find that anytime I need advice or information that the people here on mylot always come through for me and that makes me appreciate the site all that much more. Maybe you just need a change of scenery for a while and when you come back it will appeal to you again. I mostly take surveys online for my earnings and sometimes write articles. I also buy and sell on e-bay as well as some other ways of online earnings so when I come to mylot it is mostly for relaxation.

Yes I agree with you cableman! Sometimes we just need a change of scenery. I don't have other sites to boost my earnings that's why I just go to facebook and twitter to interact with my friends. Most surveys I encountered were US base and it's not applicable in my area.It's so sad. I hope I can find other sites that really pays like mylot.

After repeating the same work for long period, I am sure every will feel boring. I did have the same experience too. I felt very boring, lazy and tire to start a new discussion, to respond and to comment. My mind was not here anymore. At last, I did not active in mylot for few weeks in order to refresh myself. Now, I am better now. ha! ha! I return to mylot again. I think you should try the same too.

Yeah I think so. Mylot is already a routine to me so I guess that certain time I felt bored by doing the same thing. But it's just a once in a while feeling, now I am back again in my usual enthusiastic mood. I hope to be very productive today. You should too. Good luck to us aeiou!

I guess I don't get bored here because I come in spurts and when I get tired, I leave. I am not here all the time but when I'm here, I am pretty much on point, all around the site because I am looking for all of the wonderful things my friends are posting and learning about different things. If I feel something like that coming, I have many other online activities to keep me busy and I would just leave and return at another time.

Hi meticulo, I agree MyLot is boring. I am not complaining just voicing my opinion. I search and search too for discussions that I am interested in or one that will catch my attention. Sometime I say to myself, "Get a life, I know you can find something else worthwhile to do." But MyLot is not the only thing that I do during the day. I have a lot of time on my hand so when I can't find anything else to do I MyLot. And by the way thanks for the discussion it give me another one to post a response too. (lol).

I understand you but I notice you are still new in here. It's still too early to get bored. You can add friends who are very active in making post that way every time they make one you are given notification and will enable you to reply if you like. Happy mylotting Nvoptimus! Goodluck!

I don't think MyLot is boring, but it can be draining when you only make up to a couple of cents for a question you ask or a response you given. I like responding but wish I could make so much more. I learn a lot from MyLot and answering questions is pretty fun.

I don't feel bored about just a couple of cents to earn here on mylot every time I make a post. It even motivates me to do more. I just felt this feeling of boredom sometimes that I can't do anything except to browse and browse and end up with nothing. Maybe I am just exhausted by other things in a day. So it's best to have a fresh mind every time we open mylot. Thanks!

I would not say that Mylot is boring but as many of us use this a part time source of income we often end up being tired from work and even though we may see many interesting discussions we just dont have the determination toparticipate in them and then say that mylot is boring. What I do now is that I check the discussions posted in my interests and then reply to those discussions. By doing this I managed to reply to discussions that are of my interest and its keeps me active here. So try doing this and it may help..

Hi meticulo. I think I know exactly how you feel. I understand your point. I get bored here too. Sometimes I feel like mylotting but I cannot find any interesting topic. I browse and browse and there are times I just can't seem to find a topic that I can relate to or I can respond too. Whenever that happens, I get so frustrated because I just felt like my time's wasted. But I just go back the other day and try mylotting again.

You really experienced what I felt. I guess like some of our fellow mylotters had said that it's better for us to take a rest if we feel bored and just go back when we feel like mylotting again. I agree with them, it really depends on our mood on a certain day. So that no matter how exciting are all the topics we can't find it interesting at all. Plus it made me sad when there would be some exciting topics I like to comment and found out the one who post it had chosen the best reply for it. Sucks!

I guess you feel that way because at some time, you can't find a topic here in myLot that interests you. I sometimes feel that way, too. What I do is I just go take a short break from myLot and come back some other day. By that time, I would have found a topic to comment on. Or sometimes I create my own discussion, something that I am interested in. And when someone comments, I give them a reply, thereby creating my own discussion.

From time to time I do get bored and nothing really catches my eye. Especially when it a topic that has been repeated often. However I just try to answer things that might not really appeal to me so much, just to keep my writing consistent. Or I read what others have written regarding the topic to spark my interest. Sometimes I get burned out from writing and in that case I take a break for a few days. That always does the trick!

I agree with you that the primary reason why we are here is to earn money. That is the reason of most people here. But if there will be no money involve here I guess it will not make us bored since there are a lot to learn here on mylot. I am not concerned about earnings. I am just bored sometimes because maybe when I log on here I am already drained from everyday chores. So I guess we better use mylot if our mind is set to make a post and reply to topics and not just for the sake of logging in. Thanks daniel for your comment!

In fact, on mylot was also very boring because we have the time to comment, but sometimes they do not know what to say to create a sense of sadness.
