I just joined myLot today and I'm really excited to get started. A friend of mine recommended me this site and she said I can earn money from this site. That is really cool. Any tips from veteran members here how to get started with myLot and to earn money here?

Hello there jane. Glad to finally see you here. It's not that difficult to earn on myLot but the main thing is to just enjoy yourself. Make friends. Respond to discussions and if you're up to it, you can always do the tasks that will pay you some money. Welcome to myLot and hope to see you here more often. If you have any specific questions, you can always pm me. I'm in your friend's list.

Thank you Umi for the welcome. I'm finally here and thanks for the invite too. I hope I will do well here. How are you today? I hope you and your family are doing well. I hope my joining this site will somehow in one way benefits you and I both. Any other tips you have will be of much help. By the way, how do I send a pm to you? I'm so new here. I really don't know a lot of things. If I sound silly, please forgive me.

This is going to be another silly question, Umi. How do I go to your profile? Sorry to sound so silly but I'm very new. You know that I don't surf the Internet. I don't even have an account with Facebook. LOL.

Hi janeaustin, welcome to mylot. This place is an excellent thing wherein you can spend your free time starting topics and responding to answers and topics from other my lot users around the world. It's better not to focus on the incentives yet, rather focus on posting good topics and giving helpful answers. Reward for your effort is just a bonus here since you are going to learn many things from other people as well as you can be friend with people globally. This is a place where you can also understand different perspectives from different people groups. Concerning rewards, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you jdalaqui. That is quite a name you have there. Pretty difficult to pronounce. Anyway I thank you for the great tip. I guess this place is like a social networking website to meet new people from all around the world. I will try this site out and see how things work out. I do love to meet new people and learn new things.

Thank you giftsandbagscom for the prompt reply to my post. I already feel so welcome to this community. But how do I get paid? I haven't read the terms and conditions yet. I know I should have but when my friend invited me to this site, I just joined because I trusted her. I think I should go to the FAQ and check out the nitty gritty of how things work here. Thanks again for the warm welcome.

janeaustin Have fun!! What I do is play a little game with myself that keeps me typing...I try to catch up to posters like ms.giftsandbags here with her 32 thousand posts (it'll take me about 4 or 5 years to catch her, but by then she'll be up to 90 thousand!!) In other words, be consistent. Write things of substance and Have Fun. The money will start to add up. You will see your balance when you log in. Welcome to the myLot neighborhood:)

Oh goodness. I didn't realize the username I've chosen is the name of the great author Jane Austen. Sounds similar but spelled differently. It just popped into my head when I created the account on myLot. My name is Jane and then I was thinking of the show Six Million Dollar Man so I just used his last name and used the name Austin. I wasn't even thinking of the great author Jane Austen. What a coincidence! Anyway, thanks for the welcome. I will surely take some time to look into the terms and conditions and the guidelines as well as the FAQs. This looks like a great beginning. I feel so at home already.

Hi, I am also a newbie and I join this just because I saw this from someones facebook. I don't know how to start and right now all I know is reply discussion only. I wish to start a new discussion like this but I cannot find a way. So can anyone help me and teach me? I need a lecturer to teach me for using myLot. First question how to I start a new discussion? Then normally what should I do in here?? I feel so lost because I don't know at all about this. Feel like want to cry. Can anyone guide me to start? I don't even have friends who are using this so can anyone add me as friends too? By the way, can I add friends in myLot? Feel like so much question I wish to know but don't know how to start...Really I need help!!!

Hi janeaustin. I am also a newbie here and learning how to navigate the site.Main thing is to just relax and try and browse thru the site to gain a general knowledge of the site,then take a deep breath and try it out. Remember we were all newbies at one time and we learn by doing and at the same time by making mistakes.Do not worry about making a mistake,believe me I am the king of mistakemakers but I learn from it. Enjoy....

Read the guidelines, follow the rules, if you post a discussion, respond back to the people who reply and try to be original. You can search on a topic to see if it's been covered before. Personally I find that posting about what I know (mostly my life) works best for me. Good luck and welcome.

Participation is the key. Follow the rules and participate when you can; and you are on your way. For the most part, that is how you earn. The more you participate, the more you earn. I would recommend that you just take those things that you would say to acquaintances and make them something to discuss. I don't get too personal, and I try to talk about things that a lot of people can relate to. Not everyone has English as their native language. So, sometimes you have to understand that not everyone will understand, but helping with however you are able to communicate is a good idea.

I can see that you are already doing good even just for a first discussion. If you start a new discussion you should comment back on those who responded because that is one of the ways you could earn. As many would say, You type, you earn, I type, I earn. You won't be credited for all those who responded on you if you don't comment back. But, the comment should have a body and not purely Thank yous! Also, using the search tab will earn you points. The task will also help and responding to topics of your interest will also add to your earnings. So, keep it up and good luck! Welcome to Mylot!

Welcome to mylot!! Your first discussion and you got 23 responses!! Very good! Don't forget, you earn by commenting on your responses. That's why this is called a discussion site. Everyone is more than glad to help you out. The senior members are very knowledgeable and are glad to give advice. Remember to read the guidelines and FAQ sections (I know, you already heard that a hundred times!). I printed the guidelines out because I keep forgetting them. Hope to see you around the lot. Happy mylotting.
