How do you make your targets in mylot

Hello there, We have been talking about not making our targets in mylot this month as mylot keeps going down when we want to come on here, got me thinking about if we make targets how we go about making our targets. Since I haven't been back long I'm still thinking about targets but I was hoping this month to at least answer 10 discussions every day and keep up to date on all my comments.... not working at the moment. So would you care to share how you come about making yout targets if you make targets or if you don't make targets how you just go with the flow. Or what targets you would like to have but know you will never ever get.... so your dream targets. Off for a lovely hot bath before I settle in front of the telly and drink some lovely wine.... white wine tonight

My target right now is to start at least one good discussion, make 5 meaningful comments, keep track of comments on all my discussions up to date. Not a big one. But it works and I'm content right now.

My Target is for each day usually I come up w/a list for the week of what need's to be done each day. Today I am commenting on this subject because my "target" for today was to ask about the scoop on MyLot? I am new and not sure what to start for real MyLot Targets w/out clearning knowing what we get paid for in here. Can you help me.

No I can't really help you, my advice is to start a discussion about it and then fellow oldies will be able to tell you everything. Sorry I can't help you any further. Just have fun on mylot and make lots of friends

Targets? Isn't that a chain of "Junior Department Stores"?

We don't have them in Canada -- yet. Next year, though, they're taking over a lot of Zellers stores...

hi anne oh I went into that gung ho 5 yrs back was going to post 100 a day and the more I did the less I made as I think they were all poor quality then Diana suggested quality cut down on so m any and make better posts and have fun make friends and enjoy responding to all of them.I did just that and started to enjoy posting and was having fun. I noticed I was making three times as much. now I do the same thing,I participate a lot and enjoy responding and commenting and re-commenting, going back and forth and having fun.M aking targets and being hell bent on so much posts was not fun, and i was not enjoying it at all, just hard work for nothin so I learned a valuable lesson, quality and fun and enjoyment and participation are the keys to better earnings,

I do recall the day I got rid of dialup and got DSL I set a goal to see just how much I could do in a straight 24 hour period. I can't recall but I think I earned over 1000 points in my numbers next to my name and I made a lot of cash as well. I am not positive about the amount but I did work here 24 hours nonstop. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I usually take 10 dollars and divide it by the number of days in the month and try to make that much in the month. But that is hard when Mylot is down. I know they need to upgrade, but it would make more sense to pick one day a month, like the 15th and upgrade instead of all this. One day I had no pictures on anything, now the pictures are back, so part of the upgrade must have had something to do with that.

Well my dear, that is so simple and I never thought of that. I'm going to try that and add my other bits on that I want to do as well. Good job you are here, keeping us all right, so very simple I'm sure that many of us haven't thought about it that way

I don't really have a goal, or a target, in here... I just come & check out few different discussions & respond if I find one that interests me... Every so often, if I have something on my mind, I'll throw it out there as a discussion & see what people say... Eventually I'll get paid out but I'm not too worried...

Hey there! I need to do that. Sometimes I forgot to put some response here or to start some discussion and when I am going to check my earn for the past day I saw that I need to work more hardest here. I like my lot but I didn't find the perfect way to keep going and have good earn yet and I think if I start to do target for the day, week or month probably my earns will grow up.

hello anne18, i don;t set up any goal for a day at mylot.i visit the site frequently and i search for something to show my active participation.i love to have a back and forth comment session and if any of my friend has started up a discussion,then that day has more of my action as i get to do what i love the most. right now i have set up a target to reach 25$ this month but because of the server problems and mylot up gradation,my activity was affected a bit.in the month end,i am due on a vacation so its leaving me with just few days. lets see if i can make up this time or not.

@ Khare oh sure you will be able to reach your new target this month.And its rightly said its better to choose few discussions and comment back and forth rather to responding many discussions in a day i have observed it that when i follow your rule i have made more money than when i responded on many discussions.

i have only two referrals and that to are not active.they haven't shown any activity till date.you are lucky to have many referrals dupremo that you can manage to go on vacation and your referrals keep on earning a decent amount for you.i am poor in gaining referrals. @sj i told you it works better that way and its doubly beneficial as we get to interact as well as our earning is improved too.

But i have 20 referrals and no one is active here on MYLOT.Several times i have PM them but all in vain may be they are not interested in MYLOT. Thats right commenting back and forth is always beneficial as you come to know lot about your freinds and thats how people build freindships.

I don't have a target or a goal on here at all. I just come on and do what I can when I can and get what I get for that day and that month. If I get enough to make money that month I will be thrilled if not I know the next month I'll have more money then. I don't try to set a goal for myself I do find with out it. I almost every month I make $10 or more and that is what I spend my time trying to do every day.

Hello ShyBear, thank you for your response. I do try to get here at least once a day, today I have been home most of the day and I spent a lot of time in mylot this morning trying ot play catch up, really have spent far too much time in mylot today, and hopefully be back later tonight for another slot when the children have gone ot bed. I just pop in and out as well if I can.

To you all, if I can get back tonight when the children have gone to bed I think my target will be to just answer discussions instead of commenting on my own discussions, I feel really guitly that I'm not having time to response to other people's discussions, so if I don't comment on anything tonight that will be the reason why and tomorrow I'll go and play catch up again!!!!

I always come on three times a day. Some times more depending on the time of day. I only have one kid to worry about and she is so little that she still sleeps like twice a day for 2 naps so I get most of all mylotting done in that time frame and after she goes to bed at 9pm then I spend all of my time till bed on her getting what I can done.

target - aim at target
i made target and yet its not reached i am worrying about that as by 15th i should complete the 25 dollars and now still my balance is showing 21.35 i tried a task of Dungeons and Treasure which can give me one dollar,but that Dungeons and Treasure site is so tough to earn those ten thousand points of gold. i try to post an image with the response i do so that i get image earnings. And not that much i use the search as i am afraid with the account deletion ,once in a week or fifteen days i am using .
@Anne18 (11036)

Now thats another question isn't it, and perhaps another discussion topic(I'm not starting it) as to what is your pay out? 10 dollers or 25 or more.

Busy is very good, I always seem to be very busy when I come on here, reponding to comments left in discussions takes up an awful lot of my time, people are responding to discussions I started ages ago so always something ot do there, but fun to re read what I have been up to etc.

I used to have numbered targets like that when I started out here. But rather than getting caught up with the stress and frustration of not meeting the target, I've decided to let go of it. Nowadays, I just make sure that I come in here, and make meaningful responses everyday so that I don't get overwhelmed with all the notifications I get in my inbox.

A target? I'm afraid I don't quite understand, Anne. The only real purpose on MyLot is to actually enjoy yourself, and help others if you can. There's a lot to do here; it shouldn't be blurred with specific goals and objectives.

I try to set personal goals for myself each month here but I don't always make them. I try to do at least 20 discussions each day and I try to start at least two of my own a week. I find that it is sometimes harder than I thought to find the time. I am personally going to change my goals once the beginning of the year rolls around so that I can improve my writing skills and my online earnings.

I do have targets here on Mylot. For starts I try to be on Mylot at least once a day to work. My others targets are to make at least the minimum every month.I usually do and then I try to make at least a few more dollars by the end of the month. Those are my targets on Mylot.
@Anne18 (11036)
8 Nov 11
Min for every month, that seems quite the norm. Good one as well. I try to pop in every day, depends on how much time I have and what I can get done, have to share pc with family, so weeknds are harder.

I also just recently came back here after a long hiatus. I have never actually set any targts for myself here as I am here for fun and friendship not the cash actually. I just start discussions about what's happening in my life each time I do start discussion(s). I then answer some discussions which peak my interest as well during the day. I have no pattern or sense to my work around here at myLot. I just type away and enjpoy getting and recieving feedback. Thanks for the opportunity here to answer. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I don't start many discussions. I usually only have time to answer my response and any discussions that come to my inbox. I know about how much I have to do each day to reach payout so I try to do that or more each day. I think this month is going to be a downer for alot of people. I have been having problems posting and having to do it sometimes three or four times. It is doing better so I am thinking it was Mylot and not my browser like I was thinking it was.
