How Did You Find myLot?
May 17, 2018 9:46am CST
As I read comments and posts this morning a question started floating through my mind. How did the people writing on myLot find this site and why did they choose to write here? There are so many sites out there that it makes me wonder what it is about this particular site that made you decide to first write here and then to stay here. We all know how quickly sites come and go online. I am pretty sure most of us here have been involved with a site or two that has left us hanging without the money they promised. I now I have. I found out about myLot when I was writing on Bubblews, yes they left me while owing me a bit of money. One of the people writing there mentioned myLot along with a few other sites that she was considering trying. I decided to take a look at the site and read some of the posts and comments. I joined because I found the people here friendly and supportive. The money didn't enter into it. After I buzzed around the site for a month or so I decided that this was the site for me. I was right. I have loved it ever since I wrote that first post. It set me to wondering just how did everyone else find this site and how did they decide to join it.

I was actually way before Bubblews. An officemate referred it to me. It was a really enjoyable site. But when it announced that it won't be a paying writing site anymore but instead just like a social media, I discovered Bubblews. When I suspected that Bubblews will be closing soon and somebody from a former member here said that myLot is again a paying writing site, I came back here. I know the former member will be coming back also, so I also referred others here.
Same here. From bubblews to myLot. It was an easy start as I already knew many members who had also come over. A striking difference is the way myLot is run. If there is a question, admin answers it. Yet, the management doesn't use the site for self-expression and image cultivation. No Arvind here who clearly suffered from the Messiah complex. Do you remember his posts to his 'disciples'? The wisdoms and witticisms he used to pour over us to enlighten us?

@HazySue I closed my old account when (almost) everyone left - you know, when myLot stopped paying for a while. I just followed the crowd like a total traitor and then for some reason I got paranoid and closed my entire account instead of just leaving it. I don't know why I do half the things I do - I'm sure I had some "solid" reason at the time.....who knows what that was all about....

I came to know of it from one of forum discussions on other site. I joined it as the reviews and feedback were promising. I was happy to know that it is there for more than a decade and members are happy about it Now I am enjoying it here and so I have decided to stay here!!
