im a person with a job, not easy to find spare time in my daily. after working i usually take a rest. but i started thinking about finding other extra money methods. working online seems good for me. then, i get worry whether it is worth to try or not? or, should i just enjoy my spare time as usual and save my energy for anything else.i is there any of you who had the same problem with me? sorry for my bad English.

I think most people have such problems. I think if you are too tired of your work, you should have a good rest, after all earning little money online.

I want to be online more than I can be. Iwas on really late in the morning and it was fine with me. I think as long as I can make money that is what will do.

Well when i hada full time job I'd spend my free time doing other things. But now that I'm jobless I'm trying to make money online and it hasn't been very successful. I'm not even making $5 a day. But since you are here on MyLot stick here and discuss a few things and have fun. You will make money here for doing that and that can be your extra money

You should try finding a hobby that you can use later to make money. For example if you enjoy birds, learn about them and experiment with bird houses. Then you could start making bird houses and sell them online. Another example could be if you like kids, you could tutor kids online and make some extra cash doing something you like. The main thing is to find something you like so that it is relaxing and fun and then see if you can work out some way of making some extra cash so that its not boring or tiring. Another tip, don't not pick something because you don't see a way of making money with it. There is a way to make money on almost anything. One last example, lets say you like sleeping. Research sleep and then create a blog or YouTube channel about how to fall asleep or tips for ways to sleep better.

Hi Tinkti, if you find something online that you enjoy, and if this activity can make some cash for you, you will not feel so bad about spending hours in front of the computer. Many of us are alternating between writing articles, participating in forum that pays us, and play games that pay us too. In this case, all activities are enjoyable, and still make money for us.

It is actually worth if you're not a newbie! It takes time to get into the great businesses, so the more time you spend in front of your computer, the more success you'll have in money making! For me it took about 2 years to have a very good monthly income! But totally worth it! Have a nice day!

I think I already heard the same question raised from other site or heard from a friend during the times that mobile phones users are increasing. Maybe for many people during those time, many would tell that simply owning a mobile phone is not worth it. But now, I could see even a grade school kids having one. Simply because mobile phone today is really worth's your time having one on your pocket. I think for now, many would say the same thing about computer. Its not worth our time doing something in front of a computer. But maybe next year, I will change my opinion about it.

If you are not involved in school anymore, then sure! If you are still in college or are involved in a relationship do not. It is a waste. However, there is no issue with checking the computer everyday for 20-30 minutes.

It depends. If you are happy with your current income then I think its best to enjoy your spare time. I'm a college guy, so extra cash apart from pocket money is always good. Thus, I sit in front of the computer. Earning online can be good if you are good in marketing yourself and convincing others to join the online earning website you are in. Thus, earning a referral. The more referrals you are the better you earn. Otherwise, earning over the internet is pretty slow, and sometimes boring. If you are interested and in search of some legitimate ways of making money online, then I can message you a website which I found useful. Good luck!

Yes, tinkti.It is worth to spend spare time in front of computer when you are facing mylot right there. I used to spend spare time with it. It is earning an extra money as well as refreshing because I can share things with anyone here. Likewise, it an avenue to enhance writing skills. It is really great spending spare time at the computer with useful websites like mylot. Happy spending spare time in front of your computer.

i think it depends on what you do on computer, if you only play computer games or chat with others, it is not worth. but if you learn something new or you earn some money by computer, it is good. you can practise your English and earn money by mylot, it is great. so enjoy your spare time in front of computer! good luck!

Do what you want to do. Do not force yourself to mylot if you do not want to. Or do not force yourself to stay on the computer just to get some extra cash. Do it if you just feel like it. SInce you have a job, I assume that you are already tired when you go back home. You do not want to overwork and over stress yourself. Just relax. mylot can be actually relaxing. You get to release you problems and concerns here and you still get some cash out of it. I hope my anser helps. happy mylotting.

Hi there! I do feel that it depends if you want to spend your spare time in front of computer. If you like working at home and on computer, then go for it. However, it's generally hard to find a job nowadays. There are some ways to earn extra money but becareful for some scams out there. I don't have a job and I'm still looking for work or a job. I just hope I get a job soon.

At the moment I spend most of my time on 3 things: I work offline, I earn some extra money online and I sleep. I don't have much of a social life at the moment, but that is okay because I really need the extra money at the moment. I think that the time that I spend online is worth it. I don't earn huge amounts of money, but the extra money that I earn is very useful for me at the moment. Whether or not it is worth it for you depends on your situation and your priorities. If you need or want the extra money I think that it is worth it. If you can manage without the extra money you can save your energy for other things.

I use my free and sparetime online when i can. Writing articles and submitting them on sites, i try to get on mylot at work when my bosses disappear for some time and since they are gone right now i am online trying to make some extra cents for the day. I always have in the back of my mind to get online when i get home and make some extra money. I try to do this in my spare time but its not so easy right now because i have been so busy with family activities going on and of course trying to buy a house and every night i seem to be looking at houses and its all time consuming so when i have free time at work to get on mylot i use it to my advantage.

I like doing multiply things, sometimes it cuts my social life, I feel bad about it, but if you have a work outside of home, you have variety of social life, so working on your computer from home, doesn't have to be something effecting you in bad way. Just think about if you really need a rest and if staying on the computer is real rest for you. Sometimes I get so flooded by this online life, that I feel like I am drowning of it and I don't want to stay online wherever it is, for whatever it is. I think right now I am in such a moment, when even the amounts I am able to make online doesn't tease me. I know I will be able to cover many expenses with them, but it is not a very good motivation for me.
