and i feel i'm gaining some momentum as i go through a week long set of discussions. been busy the past week of september so i wasn't able to post as much as i like to. also, back then, during my days-off, i would be logged in to mylot a good part of the day. these past few days, during my days-off, i would be doing other off-line stuff instead. also, back at work, where i also do most of my mylotting, been very very busy as well. i think my mylotting activity had been cut into less than half than my usual time. anyway, really glad that i've managed to read and respond to most of the discussions started by my mylot friends. so to my mylot friends out there, don't be surprised if i'll pop out of your week-old discussion and post a response. lol! anyway, my fellow mylotters, how's your mylotting so far this past week or so? do you find a renewed excitement when a new month starts or is it fairly the same day in and day out for you? plus, how long do you keep notifications in your inbox? do you immediately delete these or do you do as i do and go through each one even though it has been there for a considerable time already? please chime in mylot community. cheers!!!

I know the feeling my friend! I have been way too busy to be active on here of late. Last month I earned less than 50 cents! I have an email inbox full of discussions to be answered. I have filtered most of them out to leave only the ones that I was interested in responding to, but have not had the time to go through them and actually respond to many. I have well over 100 messages there, going back to August 8th that are discussions I plan to respond to...if I ever get around to it! Some of the older ones might not be worth responding to now as they might have been time sensitive, I guess I will find out some day! Maybe this weekend coming I might have to spend some time going through them.

hi there bill. how have you been my friend? hopefully, you are doing good and life has been treating you well. i'm still in the same boat. this thread was started a good month ago and it is only now that i've been able to reply. i've been crazy busy that it isn't even funny anymore. no complaints though as i've always preferred to be active physically and mentally in whatever manner that i can. of course, i prefer to be earning while doing something so mylotting always come to mind. was not able to log in during the past three days and i find my inbox with almost 500 notifications. i went through half and deleted more notifications than i was able to respond to. finally, stopped and decided to type out new discussions instead. now, i'm going through my unresolved discussions trying to reply back or at least give out best responses when appropriate. planning to stay logged in mylot until the time for my late afternoon jog. do find time to reply back bill. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

Good thanks. Yes life has been extremely busy of late. There are just not enough hours in the day! Well, I just deleted pages and pages of notifications from my inbox. I had sorted many of them out and had intended on replying to many of them, but now I have given up and just deleted them. Going back six months right to August! In doing so I found this so thought i would give you an update to where I am at. I have been concentrating on my YouTube channel of late instead of here, as I have not been able to create a new discussion for some reason for a long time. Every time that I try, my browser shuts down. Weird. No idea why it is doing it, some sort of glitch in the system! Anyway, my YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/MrAusadventure Feel free to check it out and connect if you have a channel yourself. Hope you are doing well. Cheers. :-)

Oh I tell you honestly I do not see my email notifications at all. I find it too hectic and I do not have the energy for that. I have not opened my email in such a long time now and I am sure I have like thousands and thousands of mails of mylot. hahha ..Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

hi there riyauro. i've been there before. there was a time that i wasn't really paying attention to the email notifications that i received. it ballooned to thousands and thousands and thousands of email notifications in my inbox. since most of the discussions are time sensitive, i just deleted en masse and from that time on was very mindful of the email notifications. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

I had been very busy a week before i left our dear country so I wasn't able to mylot much. I spent most of my time with friends and family, staying awake and getting up early. When i got to this foreign land, I was busy touring around with my mom-in-law and her cousins I was pretty much exhausted the moment we arrived in our hotel. Now that i'm at my friend's apartment, I found a lot of spare time to do mylotting. The only problem is, the internet here seems to be pretty slow in opening mylot page. I'm not getting mylot notifications lately and there were over a hundred emails from mylot on my mylot inbox. Yes, i have my very own mylot inbox since i don't want mylot notifications popping up on my phone now and then.

I usually don't think about myLot month by month, I know that things change during the week so my discussions will be different for certain times of the year. I haven't been as active on myLot like I used to be but when a question strikes my fancy I'll pose it to my myLot friends to see what they think.

hi gitfiddleplayer. i understand what you wrote. there are just a lot of things happening off-line that really affect our mylotting activities directly and indirectly. been trying to really be active here in mylot when i have the time. i really find it challenging to stick to mylot when i'm online. i usually find myself drifting and surfing other sites or reading articles online. before i realize it, i've been online for an hour already and haven't done anything with mylot. lol! anyway, i'm finding it hard to follow strictly my mylot schedule so i just roll with it. i read articles for inspiration and then when it hits me, i just go ahead and type out discussions. as much as i try to respond to discussions started by others through the notifications, there really isn't much that is tickling my fancy so i just end up deleting these notifications. same thing when trying to start my own discussions that i've though about prior to logging on to mylot, i just lose the interest when i'm in front of the computer already. it can be soooooo frustrating sometimes!!! anyway, just trying to type here and there and go through the motions until i finally find my mylot groove. persistence has its rewards!!! cheers and happy mylotting!!!

I am actually changing the time from 10am to 1pm so you can go to the event. i hope the time already works for you. its been a while also that i was not able to log in here because of my busy schedule offline. but i am really trying my best this time to at least find time to be here especially there is an event coming on the second week of october. i hope to see you there. happy mylotting!!

hi rberon! hey man, how was the conference? hope everything went well. i was actually looking at the discussions started in the 'philippines' interest thread trying to see if any of you guys started a discussion about what transpired in the event. haven't come across anything yet. i wasn't able to come like what i had initially planned. i had work until 2pm that day and i had to attend to some important personal stuff that needed immediate action. anyway, do reply here when you have the chance and time and chat about what happened in the get together. hope you guys can post pictures as well. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

Wow I am so obsessed with mylot I could not go more then a day without going through my emails and answering all the discussions that catch my eye that my friends create. If you are a month over due I wonder if you will be choosy about the ones you respond to or if you will try to comment on every one. I try to comment on as many as I can but a lot of them I think will be considered poll type questions so I dont comment on those.

hi shaggin. early this year, i was really devoting most of my days-off to mylot. i would go about my morning routine and once everything has been settled, i'll be logging in to mylot and starting my own discussions and replying to those that interest me. on an average, i would be logged into mylot at least five hours and would just type away. anyway, there came a time that i really did't have the drive to log in to mylot nor did i have the inclination to start my own discussions. ***sigh*** must be mylot fatigue. anyway, i've gone through the notifications and i've answered a good percentage of these. as much as i want to reply to all the discussions, some were time-bound and others were not that interesting for me. ideally, it would have been nice if i was able to answer to all these past discussions but it was not meant to be. lol!!! thanks for participating and happy mylotting!!!
