Third year on Mylot... Wow

Philippines
July 28, 2012 11:49am CST
It's been 3 years since I started writing and posting on mylot. What started out as a way to make extra money at home has really helped me with my career choices. With Mylot I was able to leave my work as a Manager and focus on writing. It wasn't easy and I had to take on another job as a Manager before I landed on the job I have now. Mylot helped me realize that what I wanted in life was just to be a writer and that being one was gonna be a struggle. No regrets and really enjoying everything I have now. Thanks Mylot! What about you? Are you thankful you're on Mylot too?

Its been over four years for me. I wish I could remember how I fell upon this site. It was sure a great find. I find this a great way to continue my writing too. Writing can be a struggle but it can also be a door to alot of things. I am very thankful for the continuing ride on Mylot. Meeting some great folks and having some interesting discussions. Happy Mylotting.

yeah..it is struggle when new member only want much money because of their discussion..and you had showed that you still stay here not only because of money...another site can offer much money than mylot offer, but they can`t offer a great warming than the mylot community offers to us..

Yeah, me too! I am thankful that I came across myLot and I did make the choice of joining in. I don't direct the joy being here in myLot in terms of just the earnings. I mean, I really appreciate that myLot gave me something that I can do productively in the internet. Before, I just use my online time to waste and idle. But now, I have something productive to do. Learning and earning at the same time. MyLot gave me an alternative way to use the internet and I am grateful for that. More power to MyLot and myLotters out there!

Since I started writing and reading here my English got better. Now I am having really a good time speaking this language, some of my friends noticed it long ago. I am still not so good with the times, but it helped me speak the language more opened, without being worried or ashamed of what I don't know.

Hi! Hats off to you! You were able to keep going and do mylotting for that long. Well, as for me, I started out 3 years ago also, and I really love to be on mylot 'coz I also love writing and the community here, fellow mylotters really helps but unfortunately, I wasn't able to keep going as personal issues in my life came which I have to deal with so I went into hibernation and out of mylot for 10 months, anyway, I'm back and I just wish I can get back right on track again and stay on like you.

Yes, I have been on Mylot for a while too. I think that Mylot is a nice social networking site to be a part of. It really is a nice way to earn some stuff extra money for being part of this social site. Because other sites like Facebook and twitter don't pay you to socialize and basically you are typing stuff for free.

For you it is the third year in Mylot whereas for me it is perhaps my third month.Compared to you I am a newbie here.I am going to join my first ever job now.I know,I can't sustain my family with my earnings from Mylot,still I am so thankful to the site,because it is here that I learned how to express myself in English.My mother tongue is Hindi and I have been interested in Hindi literature.I learned English in school and college,but had never tried to express myself in this foreign language.It is here that I learned to voice my thoughts and feelings etc in English.And for this I got paid as well.I am really thankful to Mylot.

Here in mylot we share every thing with people from all over the world and it is great that i am part of it. My English is improving because of you all mylotters. I read all the responses and I write what I think and this has really helped me alot In this 20 days since am here I know there is more to come. Three years is quite a long time I wish I had mylot years ago, but I am glad at least i found the right place where I share my heart out and meet people from all over the world. I have till now earned $6.41 as well. So I am enjoying mylot thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

that is really nice. you are enjoying what you are doing --writing. that is the important point. whatever thing we do as a passion that work will come out very well. Read a lot, learn a lot, write a lot and teach a lot. Tell them that they should develop the ability of narrating on any thing/experience: WHAT, WHEN, WHY, HOW , WHERE, WHICH, WHO If we answer on these areas about anything it will become a paragraph. good day.

I'm glad to hear that Mylot was helpful to you,this fact proves that Mylot is much emore than just entertainment,it is also a place where people can ask for guidance and receive useful advice from other mylotters.I've also been on this great site for more than a year and a half and I am thankful to it because it is for me like an open window to distant places;it's fascinating to find out many things about people from those countries,their culture and way of thinking.This is,besides the money,the main reason for which I am thankful to Mylot and I'm confident that one day I will celebrate thirty years on it!

i have been here a long time too and i enjoyed it, enjoying each day and night that i am able to log on and participate in the discussions. it's not the earnings alone that i am thankful to the site, but friends and many good things it has given me through the years. i actually made my own mylot movie which i posted on youtube, my own way of thanking the site and all the friends i have here.
