Why are you on Mylot?

What interest dragged you towards Mylot? Is it the recession? Less full time jobs, decreasing income, has been rated the main cause of people turning towards online earnings. May be a little, but they earn here. Or you just joined mylot for fun and making new friends and exchanging views with others? Initially when I started with Mylot, I was sitting at home, Homemaker, and thought of surfing about making money online. Joined mylot, earned a bit but then slowly and gradually,Mylot was no more a site for me to earn money. I will say, for me Mylot is a Dictionary, dictionary which not only has explanation about a word(site) but explains how to use, use it or not to use it. I come to mylot, searching for some other websites review. Earning here is an added advantage but not the aim any more for me. How about you?

yes starting it has some thing which drags us to use something however as we go on with it we learn much more things and it becomes differnt comparing to waht it was in the starting. Here many people join to solve a problem or try to discuss a topic for knwoledge.Its nice site.Here many interests and ways are there ,not one which a person can say,the people of differnet topics and opinions are the mylot members which make the site more and more attractive and living.

I agree with you umabharti. And adhyz82, its not paying that much that people will stay here only for money. I am on other sites, which don't have strict rules to follow as mylot does and they pay me better,faster then Mylot. Still I hang around Mylot! so its not for money alone, in many mylotters cases. Some earn wonders here, so can be true for them

I signed here to be a referral fr a friend. I had no expectations and was not much interested. I never thought I would become an active member and quite an addict of it. Though I like a little money, mylot pays do not amount to much in my economy. But friends, knowledge of the world, recipes from the farthest countries, motivation to check other things online... All that is what means mylot for me now. I am presently ill and for some months, specially since in my country we are in Winter, I am almost secluded at home. Mylot is my window to the world. Thanks for this post, I wanted to say this

That is what! We start with this site and then we get addicted to it. Addiction is not because of money it offers, but the real people views/reviews are what make us stay here.

I first signed up to make a little extra money, but didn't get involved much until I quit my job as a forum moderator, then I was looking for community and myLot fills that need very well.

Oh Yeah! It does. So are you on mylot, full time?

That depends on what you mean by "full time." Am I on here 8 hours a day? No way. I have other things to do. I usually come here once or twice a day for an hour or more and go back and forth while I'm doing other things.

I think thats the best way to earn online. If we dedicate and work long hours on such sites, as they don't pay that much, we can get frustrated. Keep the time and work divided, so you enjoy the earning process

I have always worked, all my life I have had a job. And then I had some health problems and I couldn't work, for almost two years I couldn't work. So I looked for a way to earn some money at home and the only thing I could think of was online work. So I started working some sites and I came across mylot and joined and found that mylot was and still is, the only site that I control how much I want to earn. I can participate as much or as little as I feel like. So some months I wanted to earn more money so I would spend hours upon hours here in mylot and I was earning pretty good. Then my health improved and now I am able to work again. So now I only participate here to earn a little extra spending money. I work here and I do surveys and most of my earnings I get paid by paypal so that is my extra money for spending online. I like to buy things in ebay and kiijii and such so this way I don't have to give my credit card info out.

I just just starting receiving disability and I had bought a mobile home with my back pay but my pad rent was so high and I didn't have much money left over. I didn't have to pay for internet at the time because there was free wireless in the trailer park I lived in. I started looking for ways to supplement my income and I ran across Mylot. At that time I was able to get 30 dollars a month just from Mylot alone, but I was also reviewing products and doing online surveys so I got closer to 50 extra dollars a month when all was said and done. It was long and tiring work for me, but it helped out a lot because I was getting foodstamps but only 14 dollars a month and it wasn't nearly enough to get my groceries with. I ended up losing my home and homeless for awhile, but every chance I got I'd grab my laptop and go to a coffee house or someone's house that had wireless and try to earn a little here and there. I must say that earnings is still a huge part of why I'm here and what has kept me coming back. but it is more than that now too. I also enjoy talking to other people and learning about how they make their income online and talking about random stuff. Now I probably only get about 80 cents a day... but that does not really bother me that I'm not getting as much as I used to. I just wait and keep coming back and I know it will all add up eventually. In the mean time I'll enjoy the conversations and talking to people that seem to really care about what is going on in my life.

Hi proBlogger.. Originally, I was researching hwo to make money online.. when I came across MYLOT.. which is now apart of social networking to me.. but I just paid for it- I still use Facebook (*dont get me wrong*) but thats because ALOT of individuals are stubborn to be swayed over here LOL.. I use the MYLOT search engine as much as I can, purely because of the incentive of being paid.. I know its small amounts but Im quite happy with it for the time being.. (",)

I joined because a friend told me you could earn extra money. After I joined I stayed because of learning things and getting different perspectives and now the money is just secondary.

I end up being a mylot user when i was looking for ideas to build my websites and i found my lot and start participating, for me is not to earn money because there is no way someone could make a lot of money and easily online, its just for fun, after work i sit down watch tv and answer some discussion and that's it, i like being here i like the people in here and i also enjoy the fact that i can communicate with people from different country getting to know their culture.

Hi proBlogger! :) I am quite new here. :P I came to myLot totally by coincidence!! My friend actually forced me to sign in to take a look at his posts and give a review. But I already enjoy surfing around, taking a look at the wide array of discussions available here. :) It's overwhelming - seeing the large number of topics being discussed here. And also the huge number of answers they fetch, portraying all possible perspectives into the matter. Earning is indeed only an added advantage here!! Have a good day!! :)

First, Mylot is the most reliable online website I know so far. It never fails to pay for us for all these years. This is so amazing. Even if the earning is little, but it is still an encouragement. Second, we can always learn various kinds of information from Mylot. When we meet troubles, we can also consult different people here. Third, I want to be the one who will post the most here. This is my goal. So I am still addicted to Mylot. I love China

Well the reason iam here on mylot is basically to earn an handsome amount of money, Though if we look at the brighter side Mylot is a great option to socialize with people we can get to know each other and message each other, Apart from that the best thing that Mylot has brought which is working as a problem solving to most of the mylotters is sharing each other's views and giving suggestions and advices. I honestly speaking love this very much apart from any social networking sites like facebook and twitter thought there is a real time chatting which is not here but i like this site very much it actually helps when you want some suggestions and queries to be solved iam thankful to mylot for creating such a beautiful site. And iam sure in the near future they will upgrade their site and may come on top of everyone.

I came to know about myLot when i was searching an answer to some question. When i saw the answer it was exactly what i was looking for. That is when i decided to join it. Now it has become a part of my daily surfing routine. Questions are answered and you can also earn extra money. As you rightly said it is like a dictionary to me too. Happy myLotting :)

I joined mylot to be able to use my time productively. As a wife, I stay at home most of the time. Sometimes I have free time and I thought mylooting will be a good way to use it. I can do what I love, I can express my mind and I can even earn, so I said why not?

I also was sitting at home and thought of surfing around looking for money making ideas and at some point I hit a link promoting Mylot and here I am. Like you, I also don't use Mylot as my primary money making site, I love the topics being discussed at Mylot and it provides me a place where I can freely express my feeling about different situations in our life. I like making new friends and Mylot has plenty (a lot full of) good people that I can interact with and learn from. I have yet to earn my first minimum, but I am in no hurry since I am enjoying the posts and replying to them.

When I first joined myLot, the aim was to make some earnings online. As I continued on, I discovered that myLot is a unique place to meet and make friends with wonderful people form countrie and cultures around the world. A wonderful community where members are working together and helping one another for mutual benefits. That hs become the true value of myLot to me.
