I remember my first day at myLot....almost one year ago

United States
August 15, 2016 8:13am CST
I knew I signed up at myLot in mid-August 2015 - I believe it was one year ago today. However, I had to scroll back to see what day I posted my first discussion. I knew I didn't post immediately, I took some time to see what this place was all about. I did my virginal post on August 18th, two days from now. A look back over the year and I'm very glad I jumped in and got started here. I have met a lot of very nice people here, some I knew previously, some are new friends. I've also seen people come and go as fast as weeds pop up in our garden. We're all a year old, but as long as we don't change our profile photos whose to know LOL! Have a great day - and thanks everyone for a fun year at myLot.... PS Thanks to myLot for this enjoyable site! Photo: pixabay.com/en/candle-wick-light-wax-wax-candle-1043316/

It would not be possible for me to trace the exact date that I joined Mylot. My first discussion was posted on 27th October 2006, but I was a member for a couple of months prior to a actually posting. I began by reading for a few weeks and responding afterwards until I finally assessed what type of material would be suitable here.

@AbbyGreenhill Only half a tow at first. Mylot was the first writing site that I ever used, so I was more concerned with participating properly than earning.

I know that I joined the 17th of August last year, but now my profile shows "12 months ago". I cannot believe it's one year already.

@AbbyGreenhill I wrote my first post the day I joined and it was easy to check in which day my earning started.

@Jessicalynnt I left there when they said 'no one would get paid for any of the back stuff' and I had been promised, in writing, that I would get the money owed me...so I told them bye bye.

@AbbyGreenhill Oh no, I only joined the computing world 3 years ago, and Bubblews was my first site. I'd never even touched a computer or done any writing until I was 73.

I have absolutely no idea when I started myLot not to mention when I posted my first discussion. You are an amazing person to be able to keep track of that. Thanks for sharing!

I'm not amazing, I scrolled back thru my discussions to see when I posted the first one. I knew I signed up mid-August.

Amen on that I started in Nov of last year & I've deleted some of my topics since then but when I 1st got on here I hit it like no tomorrow was in sight ha ha ha I was up at all hrs of the day & night on here making time when others wouldn't be on here & it was fun. I still hit it hard at times, getting up at wee hrs of the night working & interacting with others I have made a lot of friends on here & this site is the BOMB I just can't get enough of it :} so all I can say is I'm right there with you & thank you for being here & being a good friend.
