What is your mylot routine?

Philippines
November 23, 2011 4:54pm CST
I am not as active in mylot as before. I have been away for more than one year with mylot until last month I decided to get back here. Early this month, I wasn't able to post anything again and this time I would like to post something on a daily basis. I am trying to see what would be the best routine. Is it posting a lot of discussion in a day, and then a lot of responses the next day. Or maybe doing both thing. I would like to ask my fellow mylotters, what is your daily mylot routine? What do you do the first minute you log in here that involves the discussions? Do you go about your discussions first and try to reply to the responses you get? Or do you go around the site and post your responses first? Or maybe you start a couple of discussions then after the discussions, that's the only time you respond to the other topics? Which do you think is more effective when it comes to earnings? Thanks for responding and happy mylotting!

I always go to the newest ones that are posted first, then I will check discussions that were posted by my friends and reply to their discussions, then I will head over to any that I have started and respond to the replies posted. I don't have too many of my own though simply because I mostly reply to discussions started by others.

I don't really have a routine. I just pop in when I feel like it or when I want to chill out. I don't start many discussions around here, most of the time I find it easier to response. I have been away from months, but every time I come back, I just want to response to many discussions that I find interesting.

I go to my discussions that I started first to respond to others. Then I see what my friends have put on and respond to their discussions. After that I usually answer other discussions that catch my attention. I start a discussion mostly when something has happened in my life or to friends of mine. I'm not sure which is the most effective way, I just have a habit I guess so I stick to that... =)

I usually log on, take note of my earnings, and then I see which discussions catch my eye. Sometimes I'll search for specific discussions that I think I'd be interested in replying to. I'll usually get off once I feel like I've exhausted all the discussions I'd like to reply to. Usually when I'll log on again, I'll find some more discussions that I am interested in responding to. Occasionally, I will check the tasks, but I tend to focus my interests on the discussions instead.

Does that mean you aretaking notes about your earnings every day to get smarter? If so, thats a good idea,if not, you just gave me a good idea :D For the question: I love the simular discussions part under the actual discussion, this way i can surf in the themes i like at the moment.

Everybody has different preferences. For me, i usually head for other's discussions, respond to them all before jumping into comments for my started ones. haha :D IT's my habit because that's what i've been doing right from the start. By time i'm done responding to all, i don't have much time to start any discussions.. haha This is a good way of ensuring that i don't start similar discussions among my friends, without having to go through the trouble of searching.. hehe

I login early in the morning and I begin to reply to all of the "Today's Top" that interest me! Then I may create a discussion depending on how relevant I'm feeling! After replying to some discussions, I will attempt some tasks that are simple and easy! Afterwords, I continue to reply to more discussions and I make more discussions that I think will relate to the myLot members. Then I may take a break and resume after a couple of hours!

Soon as I logged in here in mylot I check my discussion if I posted one and read responses and try to comment back. Then check friends topic before going to other mylotters topics. I don't check earnings too much since you can see it whenever you want to check...and it won't changed everytime you refresh the page.

hi:) I usually read all the response first then I reply to them before I respond to other discussions. then I also read some discussions and response because I enjoy to read their responses, I'm learning many things through that.

Though there was a time that I started a discussion of my own every day and then would come back the following day and comment back on the responses that I got, I think that it is just as effective to respond to discussions that other mylotters have started. These days because I don't know how much time I am going to have from day to day, I mostly respond to discussions that people on my friend's list have started. I will start a discussion of my own from time to time when I get a good discussion in my mind.

just like you amethyst i was active. but it was during the first few months i have in mylot. not until changes of the site came and the earnings didn't show well. yes, i was stubborn to think that my account was hacked but i later found out that it was some system error (i do not know what exactly it is) so after a few days of monitoring i went back to mylotting but i am not really that active anymore since i have a lot of things that kept me busy in my offline life. anyway with regards to your question. the first minute as soon as i am logged in would be spent for responding. i am the type who is lazy in starting a discussion so i spend whole hours responding. yes, this is really my bad but i am not really into starting discussion as it appears hard for me. i would only start a discussion when i am in the mood to start one. tsk too bad right?

I am a very active now. I join this site every day. I would looked around and saw the earning of the day before. I have always had to make sure that my earning had been updated. I then checked post from my interest and tried to give my best comment with a pleasure. I also started my own post, made some discussion and checked discussion from friend started. I think all kinds of participation on this site is effective in increasing our earning. I was not sure how MyLot counted up our participation, since my earning ever unstable. My earning always is different every day.

good day red_amethyst, honestly, i do not have any routine in doing mylot. my participation here requires me to have an inspiration so i can give my best ability in raising up a topic for discussion and responding to a certain posted question. with this attitude that i am observing, i can easily participate and provide quality type in both ways - raising a new topic and responding to the posted topic. hence, if i dont have those, i cannot done my work very well.

My answer is simple. First I say I'm active on Mylot every day. Then I try to write to about 10 responses per day, as well as begin at least 1 topic. Every time I happen to also perform some task. That is all.

I think the effective way to earn here is responding on people's discussions and by creating a discussion where people interacts as well. So my normal routine here is checking my email if I need to go back to a discussion which I have answered seeing if I need to go back there and make follow up comments. I also try to reply on discussions started by other if I feel I have something to say or share.

I come in here and check the Top Discussions, Started, Responded and what my friends started. It has to be like that everyday and then I loose my self and be overwhelmed on how many things I'll have to answer

hi red amethyst I usually go to my mylot email folder and starting do my friends discussions then go to hot tab then todays top and sp end part of the day responding then in the evening I go to my own discussions and comment back on any new responses so I can keep up with my own discussions. If I finish that then back to more of my friends discussions. I think you were here back when I started, not sure, hatley here working on myown discussions pays even better but I do not make many as I now get a lot of responses.

I usually start with my email in the evening after work. I check the MyLot digest email to see if there are any discussions that interest me and then I get notification emails when my friends start discussions, so I look at those. Once I'm on MyLot, I also check out my home page and check out discussions there. I don't always have the time to spend every evening though. I do so much other stuff online, I'm lucky to post to discussions once or twice a week, although I try to stop in every couple of days if I can. It's not really a set thing with me. I just do it when I can find the time.

When I log on to MyLot I first look at the Top discussions, My Interests, Or my friends discussions. I reply to those that catch my attention or I feel like writing about. Then I make a couple of discussions and reply to almost all of those who comment. Then I check out the Tasks and complete about 1-4 daily. I spend probably 30 minutes- 2 hours on here though doing all of that, then I log off. If I get bored later, I usually come back here to look at the comments on my discussions then comment back or/and respond to other discussions.
