BEFORE MYLOT.

Spending a significant amount of time on Mylot or other writing sites would necessitate suspending or cutting back on some of the activities one engaged in before becoming involved with these sites. The most I can do while mylotting is listen to music or the news - and have a snack. Here are five of the things which I don't do anymore or do less of since joining Mylot. (1) I no longer linger over breakfast - which can be a good thing. (2) Before Mylot, I would watch the 7 o'clock evening news on television - now I sometimes catch the repeat later in the night. (3) I am not reading as many books like before -- I must definitely do something about that. (4) Before Mylot I would turn on my laptop mostly to check my emails, do some research, some writing or look at my favorite YouTube videos --- now I log into Mylot first thing. (5) I recently opened a Facebook account -- but I am hardly ever there. What about you ? Have you cut back on any activities since joining Mylot or any other writing site?

i still read in bed before sleeping, either a newspaper, magazine or on my phone, but not books anymore. i visit mylot without logging in. i log in when i'm ready to interact or post, so not every day. sometimes i think about having an fb account, but still hesitate to do so.

Are you driven by need to earn money to spend more time at myLot as your other activities seem fun and interesting.

Oh for me not at all. I haven't cut anything. I use it in blank spaces like waiting for my daughter's bus to come or when other people are talking nonsense or when I have to stay with my little one for monitoring. So this is good for me that I am using my time effectively.

Even though Mylot has been around for awhile, I heard about it at just the right time.

I hardly call anyone these days. That used to be a passtime for me. I have cut down on tv serials.

Well many times I have to remember to allow some time to do all the things I do in order to try and keep extra $$ coming in all the time. Now I have to remember to prioritize things more. But I do find myself accessing Facebook a lot less since coming here. Got too many things going on to keep me away from there more now. But since coming here I have learned about other Writing sites, but enjoy this site the most.

The important thing is to prioritize and make a schedule otherwise it could get confusing.

With being on MyLot and working online, I don't read as much as I used to. I think it's because my eyes need a rest.

That could put a strain on your eyes -- working online and reading a lot.

If I could get hold of the latest books by Phillipa Gregory I would be greatly tempted to put Mylot aside for a few days.

I am not totally out of control. As I am involved in other work related activities I have a schedule which I follow - most times.

You look very "perky" in the photo. I have not changed my other activities. Well, I should be grading papers right now. But I'll get them done eventually.

@Kandae11 Oh, that explains why you look like a generic perky person! I think I'll use that gal with the baby who make $486 every day as my avatar. By the way, before MyLot, there was the site that will not be named. And before that there was Epinions. So I've been addicted to on-line blabbing since 2000.
