I've been mylotting between tasks and managing 15 minutes per session. This isn't enough to interact with members who are currently online. I've a spare hour before husband gets home from work so I'm going to spend the time on the site, hopefully without interruption from outside influence. I've a few notifications to clear and some interesting discussions to participate in so I hope the time scale will be enough. How long do you spend on myLot in one session?

In the morning maybe an hour but I do jump to FB and email in that hour, I don't 'stay put'

My activity has been sketchy. I prefer 2 hours so I can catch people whilst they are online.

It all depends on other things I do offline. But today I am planing to spend a long time.

I'd prefer a good 2 hour run. I have to rest after that as my eyes get sore.

I hope you don't have any interruptions. With 5 kids it all depends on the day. Lol.

Usually one hour in one session. I love the scenery in that photo - so peaceful.

I'm usually here until my notifications are finished. Though I have been known to take a nap in the middle, as I did today.

I doubt whether the hour will cover all my notifications as I have 15 minutes left. The time goes so fast when mylotting.

I come here when I am feeling sleepy ..and am doing some work elsewhere. I have three major personal tasks, apart form two running assignments this month. Of the three major ones, I have managed to clear one, almost. I am hoping, I will manage to clear the other two shortly. I do have to draft and am usually sleepy head. So that is when I arrive here. The best place to do work without interruption is in the restroom. Everybody respects that room somehow.

I couldn't be on here when sleepy as I'm prone to mistakes. I do prefer to be in a room alone when I'm mylotting.

It can be hard when you don't have a lot of time to sit and interact. At least you're still able to spend some time here a little everyday.

Yes 15 minutes even though it could be more than one session in a day is not good enough.

Unfortunately, because of my busy summer work schedule, I usually don't get more than 15 minutes in the morning, and about 15 minutes in the evening, to spend on myLot. Because I can't be on here a lot during the workweek, I try to make up for it on weekends!

I come and go on mylot so cannot say how long I spend on it. When I go on the computer in the morning I do certain things and when come into my e-mail I see my lots and I go into them and spend some time maybe 15 to 20 minutes or longer on it and then go do other things and will come back later on.
