Are you here for the earnings or for socialising?

Hey guys! I have been away for sometime due to some very depressing personal matters. I was unable to get on and write and be normal. I shall post about it in my next post. For now I just wanted to ask my friends on here... are you here to earn as much as you can, or are you here to make friends? Do these earnings help you in any way? Have you ever met any friends on here in real life? Share your opinions!

I'm primarily here because I love the site for the social interaction and other things. The earnings are really just numbers to me, something like a score in a game, so that it gives me pleasure when I score well and gives me some incentive when the 'score' is low. Of course, it is nice to see the money go into my PayPal account when I do reach the minimum but it really is 'pin money' (and I don't buy pins that often!). I have met one person whom I know from here, I believe.

@cxndie,You may say I am here both although what I earn here is less than my pocket money.I am here,because I love interacting with great friends like you.Earnings from Mylot has not been of much help for me.And from this small town of mine I am the only person here.None of my offline friends is interested in writing.

Ive lived in Delhi for 7 years. It's a really fast city. Yes, you are right, Mylot earnings would not help at all, except for a little extra bucks to spend.

@debadatta7 it's a wonderful idea - we get to meet so many great people while also earning a little spare change

My online friends have never extended to face to face meetings. I think we will find that most people are here for both social and for money. Best wishes for the future in the writing department.

To be honest and frank I am here to do both, and when I do something I always see to it that I do the best I can, "do your best and God will do the rest"

This is a very instreasted get question. I only joint last night - in search of a bit of extra cash, but so far I have spoke to many amazing people, already it's became more of a hobby/ social and the finance side of it had been forgotten.

It will take some time to earn on here. You have to interact and be as active as you can to earn cash on here. and you would automatically make friends.

@cxndie I seem to be taking and getting notifications none stop, yet earning very little. It's quickly became clear it's not a warning site - however there are many amazing people and I enjoy talking to such a friendly group of users from all over the world. So despite the founds - I'm here to stay

A little bit of both. I started on here because I had the opportunity to earn money just by chatting. I was in need of money then so I gave mylot a try. After a while, I kind of forgot about the money and was chatting because I wanted to. The money is a nice bonus, but I think I'm here more for socializing.

For me, its a little bit of both. Ill be honest in saying when there wasnt the earnings program for a while I disappeared for a few years until it returned. Ha! But I di enjoy this place - love the opportunity to vent or to run ideas by people.

I'm just here to socialise, I make less than 50c most days so the money is irrelevant. I stayed for a while after mylot stopped paying but left when it got into a total spamfest.

In the good old myLot many said they were there for interaction but the moment payment stopped everyone vanished from the scene. So, now you have the answer.

the earnings here is very frustrating, i think i can't make $10 for a year, lol....but i came here if i have free time to join in discussion and to update what's the latest about this site

I'm here to improve my skills in writing which I can enhance more through interaction. I treat monetary incentive in the form of earnings as bonus.

I enjoy both positive aspects of the site and if I earn some, GREAT but if I meet an actual user here personally, even better !
