Here and there...

(Sorry @hereandthere , this isn’t about you) I’m a new player when it comes to online social sites. In early 2012, I came across the old myLot while browsing the internet on making money online. The site offered a whole new concept to me. I found that it’s more of an online social site than a money making site. I got hooked; while the earning was a nice bonus, what got me was the idea of socializing online while it’s still possible to stay anonymous. When the site stopped its earning feature and everyone left, I got confused. I was ready to give up my new found hobby until a trusted online friend convinced me to try bubbling. I could only handle being on one online social site at a time, so I left here to be there only. When I heard that myLot re-started its earning feature – again, I got confused. All the good memories from the past came back and I was curious. At the same time, I didn’t want to stop bubbling. So now I find myself here and there. I know many others are doing the same, if not simultaneously on even more number of sites. But for me, this is the first time I socialize online on more than just one site – it could be confusing at times. But it's all good...

No Bubblews for me. That thing popped a long time ago. I know, many of you still have friends there, but I am not going to keep putting money into the pockets of a group (owners) that have no respect for the members.

Yeah, I seem to block out that idea and just keep using the site as long as it's there...

Trying to confuse us, @PhredWreck by changing your bolded name around from time to time? I'll have to watch out for that.

@MarshaMusselman Actually went back to the name I used here for several years because people kept calling me Lamb instead of Some Guy Typing

I actually thought that you had been here a lot longer than that. I always stick to 1 site and despite being a member of Bubblews there is no activity there now so returning here replaced that site completely.

You're not the first who had thought that @Asylum ... I guess it's because I hang around myLotters who have been here a lot longer than me.

@sishy7 I have been a member for about 9 years now and assumed that you arrived shortly after me. Did you enrol in Mylot then travel back in time to write a discussion to confuse me?

@SIMPLYD maybe you used a different email address? maybe the email they sent went to your spam folder? what if you tried singing up as a new user but using the same user name and password and see what message you get?

For a bit of time there, Anna, I thought something bad happened to your husband since you hadn't been on there since about the second of September. I was quite surprised to find you had migrated over to here instead. May as well stick to the sites that provide a benefit along with the interaction and friendships. Since most of our friends left there a long time ago, things are pretty slow as we all know too well.

@MarshaMusselman My husband is still not well and Bubb has become so slow that I was unable to interact there. Here I can stay only half an hour but I can read and interact with many people, because the site is fast and you do not have to wait forever to see the page refresh and your comment appear.

I think there are very few who are still on both the sites. As I know, majority have left that site.. You don't get this level of interaction there. I'm actually worried that we may not be able to experience the earlier mylot now that everyone is back after a stint in that B site that promoted robotic interaction!!!

I disagree that the site promoted robotic interaction and I also believe that certain folks got decent interaction on their posts, and with their commenters. Things are just set up differently between both places. Plus if they hadn't paid so well the first couple of years, then the lesser amount wouldn't seem so bad. One thing I like about mylot and a couple other sites also is that we get rewarded for the comments we make on posts of others, rather than only comments we've received. It allows us to be more involved in each discussion. (sorry, Sishy for going OT a little bit).

@buddha3 Seems to me most of us have to adjust to this new layout of myLot - returning or new, ex or non ex-bubblers alike... @MarshaMusselman No worries. I agree with you...

Even at the height of earning era over there, the most I've made was only $10-$15 a month. In a way, the current slow rate now does not bother me at all. What bothers me most is the random and inconsistent way they handle redemption.

I need to get busy and see if there are any posts I'd like to keep in case things do go south even more than they have thus far, Shellyann. I took a lot of time in the past to save all my url's, but that won't do any good if the site goes sour. I'll need to go back through and save the content itself. Not looking forward to doing that at all.

I am a previous member of mylot too, and when I left here two years ago, I didn't go to any other writing sites, as this is the only one I liked at the time. I still haven't been to any other writing site, but this one, and now that I am back, I wouldn't want to be at any other site like this anyway. I am glad I am back, and that they are paying again.
