so your here but what keeps you coming back?

February 7, 2007 9:53pm CST
I'm interested in hearing what different people have to say as always. so i'll ask a simple question and not bore you all to death by rambling on. So your here but what keeps you coming back to mylot? ---------------------------------------------------------- /--Joey's Reply--/ I can honestly say i haven't found a place i feel i can truely speak and discussion things which i care about. Also on the day i joined i got a nice welcoming which made me see this place as a way to make real friends. (since i am pretty fed up of myspace having fake people on my list)

When I first joined mylot, the chance to earn some money was my motivation. I sooned learned that we weren't going to get rich, hehe. I enjoy meeting and talking with people all over the world. We have an opportunity for a free education here on mylot. I have learned so much from so many different people. I have met a few people that have become online friends. Some of those I would love to meet in person. I have exchanged email addresses with a few. Plus mylot can be fun at times. The money we earn is an extra bonus.

I have also posted my website on my profile, it takes you to my auctions on ebay. I am a newbie on the internet and on ebay, but I am learning fast, and I will be a powerseller someday soon.

It's nice to have a place to come to online that's REAL. Most places on the internet give me a headache! You post a question for help or to ask a question and never get a response. I think people here are eager to help. Plus everyone is so friendly.

well, not all are friendly. but most are. that's the good point. and yep. this site is "real"! we may not get everything in here, like having all our discussions on "today's top discussions section". but, we all get the chance to open up our thoughts in here.

what keeps me coming back in mylot is the fact that i love the free flow of information in mylot. i love the discussions, the different ideas people all over the world have. It is such a nice place to express, learn and earn. Mylot also helps me improve my writing skills and my fluency in english.

well i was and i am here to earn a little money but sometimes i get thoughts which are really weird and without thinking about it,i just write them on some topics and i get money and now i even make friends and also share my stories with them.

My reason for coming back is because I want to make some money. However if I wasn't meeting some interesting people and taking part in great discussions on the way I wouldn't bother doing it.

I think money is definitely a factor in pulling us back.

Yeah. Money does keep alot of people coming. I will admit i do like watching my earnings grow, but mainly this from hardwork in helping others. it's good to post to other peoples discussion and sharing what been said inside each one i've read. tomorrow i'm going to focus on greeting a few new members + my friend list again. Cheers!

Hey bicklelady =) Thank you for sharing it. It's great to so many who aren't here for the earnings. (as such) but to make friends and actually take part. It's really interesting. Thank you for your input! ~Joey

I have a few good friends on mylot that i keep coming back for also i like to set goals for myself each day. Like when i sit down here i'll say to myself ok your gonna do this many responses today or so and so many discussions. Mostly im looking for that one discussion i'll start someday that gets over 100 responses, that is my main goal. I just like to see how much i can achieve someday and if i get the 100 responses then i'll feel like im doing something good here on mylot.Maybe after or if i get my 100 resopnses i'll set a higher goal for 200. It may not ever happen for me but i have seen it on here before and would like to be one of them.

Due to my curiosity thats why i joined in mylot.I just want to know if i can get money here, but the funny is every time that i open mylot,the first comes in my mind is where i can get good questions and how can i make.I forgot my main purpose and later I found out that I enjoyed answering question and gathering some knowledge.

I keep coming back because mylot is such a friendly community with so many people helping others out. I do not get out much either and it is nice to make new friends where i don't have to spend money to go out and make them i can sit in the comfort of my own home and chat away about things i am interested in. I don't like some of the people on my friends list ill admit that because they only add me for my picture and do not reply to my discussions but at the end of the day i delete people like that... i like meeting people from other countries and talking to them and discussing things i like or know about.

It is interesting to see what people are talking about. So many have problems and if I can help one person in some way, it is worth spending some time on this site. Plus, you can discover what others in various countries are thinking. I am also interested in people my age and what they are thinking and also what the younger generations are thinking about. Since you are still young, you have the chance to make a great life for yourself. Everybody does in fact. It is something different for me. I do not go to any other sites and do this kind of thing.

I come back day after day for more because I like this forum, it has helped wake up the creative side of me..I enjoy reading and writing and this is the best place. I come back to see what discussions my friends have started, I come back to read the responses I receive. I'm so addicted now there is no stopping..lol! Honestly I joined for the money initially, but later realized this is more than just the money. Now earning has taken a back seat and I don't count the cents!

I just think of mylot as a place where people have genuine interest in discussions. Otherwise, they won't be able to survive here too. Those who do not dedicate their quality time here are apt to get disappointed, as the members have the right to mark a - for their one-liner responses.Moreover, it is very difficult to earn money here unless you build a friends' circle based on mutual trust and respect. Personally, I get some pleasure from here, when one of my postings gets an overwhelming response, or when one of my responses gets marked the best. Mylot and Triond are the only two places where I am active and I get great returns from there, if you are talking about satisfaction. Money is not bad as well, as I do not expect to earn any easy money.

I've joined up over a week and a half ago, maybe 2 weeks, and I'm not sure why I keep coming back...it sure isn't the money. I do like the discussions, especially the more intelligent or philosophical ones. I want to try this out for awhile, maybe 6 months, and see what happens. Give it a chance. I love to write anyway, and I find people very interesting and for the most part kindhearted and friendly, on this site anyway, so far.

I love this site, it is my favorite place to spend free time. I have met some wonderful people here and have learned some very interesting things. People are always available here to listen to us rant and rave about something , offer sympathy and advice when we need it. It's a great site, I'm definitely an addict and I will continue to be one as long as this site is up :) lol

I think that at first I was interested in the money. However, recently I've been interested mostly with talking to people and check responses for my posts... It's rather fun talking about things I'm interested in.

Morbid curiosity. I like reading how bright some people are and how dumb others are.

I keep coming back as I love the conversation here. I have tried other forums and they just did not feel as warm and welcome as the people here at mylot make you feel. I like the idea of knowing no matter what kind of mood I am in each day I am still accepted and there is always something to respond to and even things that make me smile each day.
