Do people know you come to myLot?

The "real world" doesn't know I come here. Hubby knows and he may even be familiar with some of you from what I've mentioned . But he does respect my privacy here, and leaves it at that. He is my confidant . . . but so are you all. From what little you may know about me, that may actually be a whole lot more than what the "real world" knows or realizes. This is my secret place where I can tell all (well almost ). You are all a special group of friends who listen and have something to say. As the "real world" can be selfish and cruel sometimes, this is my go-to escape from all that. Maybe I am selfish and cruel for not telling my "real world" about myLot . Do you openly tell the "real world" what you do online? Or do you try to keep our myLot as one of your best kept secrets?

I haven't told anyone I know in real life. My husband isn't into computering and isn't interested in what I do online. If I told him details, he'd get bored.

Sometimes I think it'd be so much easier to not deal with computer stuff . . . but then again I think of how certain things are better in life because of computers. I never thought I would find friendships online like this!

@much2say There is such a thing as online friendship but one shouldn't forget real life. It's more important.

@MALUSE That is true. I guess here we can solely focus on the conversations . . . it's as if it is equal listening and sharing. It's not always that way in real life (at least for me).

Nope. People do know I do a bit of writing online, but they do not know the name of the site. My husband doesn't know nor anyone else.

That's what I say too . . . that I do a bit of writing online, but I don't give out the details. Hubby can easily come here to read things, but I talk about it enough that he probably wouldn't be interested in checking it out for himself .

It is more like same; we use our online life and family is not interested to know. Some other people who found me chatting online do asked, but I did not tell them much as they are not going to like.

When myLot had a referral program, I spoke of it to a few friends to encourage them to join, but I had no success. They have no social media accounts and refused. Now I do not speak anymore about myLot.

My friends have no idea I come here - and I don't intend on letting them know because I'm sure I've made a post or two (or more) about them . I do love that it's sort of a secret society here . . . and I hope to keep it that way. I have a few friends too who want nothing to do with social media.

Since we can share posts to social media, I'm sure many in the "realworld" know about mylot and what we personally post. I know my mom does, as she reads them, and my bf. Along with my cousin who joined here. And probably others on fb have read my post but just never said they do.

I can't share my posts on places like FB . . . the people I talk about would kill me . I never use real names anyway - no one would find my posts via a search, um, I hope anyway. It seems most people I know wouldn't be interested in this kind of online activity.

For some reason the real world friends I have are not interested in writing online or trying to earn money which floors me, I'd think that anyone who has a PC would want to try to gain some kind of monetary reward. I can't even get them interested in making cyberfriends yet they all use FB, is that weird or what.

Exactly @much2say what I like about FB is that friends post pictures of their families but it's always understood those are not to be shared with others they do not know and of course I am always careful not to. But of course some of us like to look for jokes or funny clips, those we share.

@rebelann I like how we share our news with family and friends on FB . . . but it's a brief share with photos and snippets - seems like everyone is looking for "likes" and brief compliments - no one is into discussing the stuff we do here. And there they will have those heated discussions . . . I'm not into that anywhere I go. Oh yes, I love jokes, memes, or videos - that's always fun!

myLot pops up in conversation in the 'real world' on occasion when talking to people. A subject may come up in conversation, and I may mention 'Yeah, I was talking about that with some people on myLot earlier'. Plus I occasionally 'share' something I post here on facebook, so it isn't a 'hidden secret', although I don't think anyone 'out there' realizes how much time I spend here.

I know you say you're pretty much an open book. I have written posts about the many people who drive me nuts in the real world . . . I don't think they'd appreciate knowing that I spilled their beans here (though I never use real names). So I don't tell anyone except to say I write stuff online. Omg if anyone found out how much time I actually spent here, they'd put me away !
