How do you gauge ones success in mylot?

I have seen a lot of discussions saying how disappointed they are in mylot. They believed this site don't suit them or they're not just popular here and they're not earning according to the effort they have exerted. I am a successful mylotter! Why do I say that? Mylot hasn't given me a car, a house, or a job. I am a successful mylotter because I have gained a lot from here. Not monetary though. I gained friends, I gained lessons in life, I gained wisdom, experiences, knowledge about other countries, and I've learned over the years how to cope with our differences! I don't start discussions very often. But I read a lot from here. I read and interact as much as I can with the little time I have to spend here. I make the most of my time when I'm in mylot and that alone gives me joy.

Just like me, I do not start many discussions, but I like to read and I had a lot from myLot. I have pleasure discussing with people, I consider many myLotters my friend. This is a great site to make friends and to open our mind to new horizons. I love it.

Over the years I have come to know you as someone who jumps from one discussion to another and interact with almost everybody. That's why we have been here for a long time. But many people don't get that and it's sad.

@LadyDuck I thought of maybe sharing my discussions on social media but the downside is that only members of mylot can respond to our discussions. And if that's the case there doesn't seem to be a point in sharing then because I doubt people will actually wanna sign up just to leave a response.

No-one will ever get rich here at least not in the monetary sense. But they will grow richer in knowledge and friends as you have found out.

@JudyEv Yeah it is and some even complain why they don't get a lot of interaction when in fact they have written so well. While others are writing only about their breakfast and yet they get a lot of interaction. I never compared my writings to others.

What I earn here, I do not even consider it. I often do not even reach the $ 5 per month. But I like to stay here on Mylot, to interact and discuss. Since I do not have real friends (ie friends I know personally). Here, however, I found a place where every user of Mylot is a friend of mine! Mylot for me is te site n°1

@toniganzon Yes I remember RO2 was a milestone! By the way, at the time, Mylot worked differently. Many preferred it, Instead I prefer this new Mylot, Now no one is spamming anymore. Only earning by receiving feedback. So we have quality discussions and comments! Do you also agree?

Since joining in 2015, I've only gotten two of those lol and another one for like $1.48 I think. In reality it's nothing but it's still nice to get something. I don't think I make anywhere close to $5/month in interest in my bank account. So this is like interest in a bank, only a bit higher.

i think i know someone who is now giving up on this site because the user has but a poor earning from the time he came up to this date. although it is said that myot pays us, it is actually the knowledge gained and the friendships acquired that makes one be successful here. in my nearly 2 years of being here, i could say i am learning more and more, but also gained some unfriendly types of persons.

Gaining unfriendly type of persons as you say, is a part of learning as well. That taught as to be aware of their personalities and how to deal with them. I do understand some people need money but mylot is not the place for that. It's never been for that.

@toniganzon indeed. we get paid for only a fraction so we should not make this site as our earning station. i recall in bubblews where many Filipino bubblers resigned from their offline jobs to become full time bubblers, until the payment mode was regulated, so these Pinoy people regretted their actions.

Anyone coming to myLot to make their Internet fortune will be disappointed. This is a great community and anyone who doesn't think so just doesn't get it. If there is a good way to make money writing Internet content the gang here will be discussing it. Being a myLotter means friendships and good discussions. I would be here more if I could justify the time. I consider the time I do spend here well spent. I think I'm successful.

Gaining more friends is way better here. Mylot opened my eyes to many topics and discussions that might be helpful in the long run. Im also happy that I was able to communicate around the world. I believe the reason Mylot is created is to build bridges between nations and connecting every mylotter for a common purpose.

@ebanreb You are doing well with the numbers next to your name. I've been here for 7 years but I have made only 750 discussions of my own but as you can see next to my name I have made a lot of interaction. I have learned over the years that the secret to success in mylot is not only making a discussion. There are months when I don't and I would just interact with a lot of people and yet I gained the same thing.

I dont know. I admit I do check the earnings tab a few times. Its neat to see it go up. I'm here to make new friends and learn new things. I loved the old bubbles community because it was easy to see other crafty moms doing things. We could share craft projects and learn new things. It was very helpful and inspired me a lot. So im kinda looking for that here too. If I can cash out? cool it will go for craft supplies. if I don't? no worries I still learnt something and feel my time was spent for good things.

@toniganzon I'm not sure its real motivation for me yet (if ever). Its more or less a curiosity in when/if the first pay out will happen! I know a few people who are interested in joining if the site is legit so they keep asking about it! So maybe it will be more of a sigh of relief to go, "they paid, now shush and go write!" :)

Many of us here are not for money. People who are here for the earnings may not survive for much time as they know they won't get rich by the earnings from Mylot. I am also here as I like to interact with people. You know I had a chance to reach payout as I am at $4.8 but I didn't try hard today as my motive is not to earn money here.
