I have noticed literally dozens of posts about making money off the Internet through Web sites such as Mylot.com, and in most cases the people posting appear to be living in a dream world. First, there's the matter of sheer numbers. Look at how many people are climbing aboard Mylot.com, for example. Hundreds, even thousands per day. In order to come out ahead and earn any sort of income at all, a newcomer to Mylot.com cannot simply pour forth meaningless one-line posts, make whiney comments about why they can't make a lot of free money, etc., and expect to draw any kind of measurable audience. One of the best aspects of Mylot.com is when someone shares a biographical anecdote from which I can draw a small lesson about life. That's what makes this process great, not trying to tap into a mythical pile of free cash that really doesn't exist.

You are so right. If people would take the time to actually read and follw the rules that mylot has set in place, then they would earn more. Mylot is not a job, it is not meant to earn you a fulltime income. People who think that are just dreaming. As for all the other make money sites, yes it is true there are many ways to make money online, but the biggest factor in your success is how hard you work. You just can't expect to make a good living online without actaully putting forth effort. That is the problem I see most. People expect to do nothing and have someone pay them. Come on, it is just common sense. To earn money, you have to work. Period. If you want money without having to actaully work, then buy some stock or invest money in something and then sit back and wait for years to get your money. If you want money now, then you had better work at it. Online is no different than offline, except the opportunites are larger, but you still have to put in effort nad work at it. There is no magical money tree that will give you money when you want it just because you think it should. IF there was, then noone would be worrying about anymore. Life doesn't work that way. Complaining doesn't make the money come any sooner either. In fact it just wastes energy that you should be spending on earning the money. As for sites like mylot, you should enjoy it, take complete part in the community, follow the rules, and have fun. Think of the money as a bonus.

Nice summary here. As for actual monetary numbers, I can see how it could snowball if the people posting keep a steady drumbeat of ideas running through the site. It's a matter of drawing, holding and growing an audience, and it does take time. That earnings show up the very first day of one's involvement is proof that a serious earnings potential is at hand here. You just have to work at it and, though I would not devote eight hours a day, it might be a good option for people who cannot work traditional jobs for one reason or another.

I love this response. I have lost a ton on those other kinds of income opportunities. I love the bonus of being paid here, while I talk to all kinds of people and make new friends. I work two regular jobs, but one of them is school related so I have some off work days and months, hence the second job, and the myLot hobby.

its funny what greed does to some people. it seems a lot of people are always looking for an easy way out. which they will never find it. these people have to realize you have to WORK HARD for your money, even though they offer it practicly for free, they are still asking for our time and they state they want quality posts. peopel should stop whinning and complaining, it gets me irriated to a point. most of the time i'll ignore posts like that. they won't get much anyway and i'm looking for good posts to respond to.

Thus is the way society is today. It's really sad, but that's how it is. Everyone wants things NOW. Instantly. No one wants to work for anything anymore..heck, they probably never had to work for anything at all to have learned that if you want things it takes work. I come from a poor family though, so I appreciate anything I get lol.

And I might add your posts contain much substance. If I'm not mistaken I've already rated one of your other efforts a "best response" and I will likely do the same in the future if your comments remain as meaningful as they have been.

i definitely agree with you, what you give is what you get exact trade per se. mylot dont just give us earnings unless we really work for it. the sad thing is lots of people here post stupid and nonsense discussion and responses jsut to earn money... somtimes the main mission of mylot are ignored. but hey, i think everyday mylot has improvement!

The best response to the junk posts is for Mylot.com to filter them out automatically and offer no earnings for such efforts.

You can't just randomly post sketchy, short one-liners and expect to gain anything. Work on grammar, puncuation and make sure you are clear about what you are saying.

Whoa! Just how did you make that much as an Amazon affiliate, 1dollar? I've been signed up with them for awhile and have gotten exactly zero. How did you do it?

I wish it were easy to make money online but sadly it just isn't. I joined this place because I like posting on forums anyway and getting paid for it is just a bonus.

You can make a lot of money indirectly by taking some of the ideas I read about here on Mylot.com and use them elsewhere on the Internet.

We live in a society where money seems to be everything. Yet it really isn't, I like money and nice things as much as the next person but it seems to me that money is best earned when you are truly working for it. i came here to talk and share my opinion it had and has nothing to do with money. I would rather get nothing monetarily but gain wisdom form my time here. In this day and age it is like people cant see the Forrest for the trees.

This is a very genuine online paying site.But with other sites its difficult to believe them they are scam sites. They say you get paid for only by keep opening a page for 30sec also they say that they pay 100$ money is growing on trees to grow like that else every one would have been a millionaire in this universe. so its very rare to find site like www.mylot.com a genuine paying site

you're right. it takes a lot of hard work to earn lots of money. i don't think there is a job out there that will give you money automatically, unless it is illegal. the first impression most people have about mylot is they could make posting here as a full time job. but they would soon realize that is not true. i enjoy posting my responses and comments here at mylot but i cannot retire on my earnings here. earning money while having fun on a site such as this is just icing on the cake.

Very well sad I like the way you think. And thats how I feel too. When I first joined mylot I made a comment on how I wish people would stop telling everyone lies about how you can become rich from so and so site. Its really just a big waste of your time. But hey if thats what you want to do waste your time then go for it. Right? After I made that discussion of course someone commented back to me about freedom of speech. After that Ive never commented about these so called sites.LOL

What I like about MyLot is they're honest about what you'll earn, and no, it's not supposed to take the place of a paycheck. (Scams, on the other hand, promise millions for almost no work, which is how to tell they're scams). Still, even if one only earns a few cents a post, at least you do have some control over your earnings, your output equals what you'll reap. So, yes, time, lots of typing, and patience. I'm not looking to get rich on MyLot, I'll be glad if it helps pay for my child's diapers, that would be a huge help towards the grocery bill. I haven't been on here much, but am looking forward to getting to know many of you.

I find that so many people want to getting money automaticly from the internet. Why?IF someone has a regular work and a good salary, does he like to do it as others? IF someone want to get more money except the salary,why does he not put more energy on his work and make good success and more money? On the other side,if the person has no work,but he want a ferry good life,how can get it?So i think that it is the different life make different consideration to the money.Many people find the website can get more just by typing and knowledge, the gate to get money is not very high, so people like to do it. for the more, it is good way to touch many kind of people in the world, i find many idea about making money, i am very intersting about the theme.
