DO you think MYLOT is worth it? I mean some of my wealthy cousins think I waste my time on Mylot and that their pocket money is more than what they canmake at Mylot!! Do you feel the same way? I do actually feel underpaid here sometimes but then I have got such good friends here, I dont want to disect myself from them!

Yes, I am feeling the same too... :( So if you hang around, maybe do it just for the chat. Or.. beats me. :/

Personally I think your making mylot your full time job. Your posting questions like it's water flowing out a faucet. Your giving best response like it's not hard. You do respond back to your respondees. I can't see how they feel your wasting your time. maybe they wish they could sit and work hours for pennies. I know I don't want to work that hard for pennies. But you say you have such good friend. That all good I wish you luck.

If you are here just for the money you are wasting your time. I'm here to practice my writing, make friends, and gain exposure while getting ideas for my journalism. A couple bucks is a nice incentive. I set my payout at 100, so when that day comes it will be such a bonus.

It is not a waste of time if you are learning something everyday. Knowledge can be power. Your stuffy wealthy cousins can just have their dough. You are earning as you are learning and sharing. You do what is best for you. You can make a dollar or 2 a day, must make 3 or more lined responses on topic and thought out. It will begin to add up. Payout minimum can be met within 2 weeks. Good luck.

Well for me it's not a waste, being I do have a job. It's a passtime for me, I enjoy coming on here, I've met some friends that I enjoy conversing with and I enjoy the many topics and responding, Also, making my own... For me, it's not a waste, it's enjoyment when I have free time and want to be on my computer...

Well we're not all born with a silver spoon. That being said I'll take money wherever I can get it. And if I can make a decent amount by posting, creating discussions and referring people to do the same. Well then I will. And then do some other stuff like building up multiple sources of income for myself so I can become wealthy like your cousins. If I could make $40.00 a month from mylot that would at least knock out the costs of the internet. Is that worth it? :-P

If you weigh your time and effort with the amount you are paid my mylot, i dont think it commensurates. please dont do only for money. Take my case. Earlier, I used to spend hours on end chatting in the messenger for nothing. Now i spend much less time with myLot and getting at least some cents. What do you feel now? MyLot is better?

dont worry about it. than why is mylot really here for, not to make friends or ask what you need help and help other out? i understand that you have to do something else other than to be in the computer but thats why you come here when you do all the important work and finally relax for the day, usually at 6pm. thats what i do, when i go to school, i spend my hours there and come home doing the chores my dad has me to do when he is at work and i finish like around 4pm and i come here for a while than at 5pm i go running with my friend and i come back using the computer for another while. when i go to work, i come using the computer like around 6pm.

I personally dont think its worth it if your trying to make money here, i use mylot just to chat and promote the website i do use to make money. i make hundreds a month using www.treasuretrooper.com/219551 but i like mylot because its just fun, but i definatly wouldent use it as my sole online money maker, ive only made $0.36 so far on mylot

I don't ever think a good thought provoking discussion is ever a waste of time. I really enjoy this site just because of that. I'm not here for the money really although it'll be nice to have a little extra once in awhile.

i dont think u should just because some people think theyre too good for it. u enjoy it and hard work does pay off in some way, and i think that if u working hard and even if it doesnt well worth it all the time u are WORKING for it and that should make u feel goo, i love this place and i like the amount of money i have here and the people who are here, they make it worth it.

yes i feel this way. but i dont really have a choice in mylot. its fun and you get paid for chatting. even though i am underpaid i really want money to buy things. i know how you feel. mylot is worth it. your small profits and income will slowly make you richer than you have ever been before. dont give up.

I love being on mylot because it is nice to know that there are people who actually get interested on my ideas. The exchange of opinions here helps me to know more about different things, from family life to the habits of different people. The site is informative as it is a venue where people can exchange ideas and opinions. At first, my aim in being a member was the payment but as time went by, I have exchanged words with a lot of good people here, that money became the least of my priorities. Now, all I want is to post good topics so that others will find it appealing to reply to. Funny that I don't even know until now, how to cash my earnings here. LOL!!!!

Your wealthy cousin's money is their money but your earning at myLOT is your money.Don't compare.Carry on at myLOT and find your pocket becomes heavier than that of your cousins.

if you came for the money and stay for the friends who has the most wealth. I would say you are the winner by far, as well how did your wealthy cousins get their money did they earn it or is it the earnings of some one else, And they inherited it. Every one in the world starts off the same we were not born with pockets, and it is our obligation to provide for own self. Some times our parents or grandparents see a chance to provide for a future generation, but in most instances this just takes away from the character of the person on the receiving end, they believe they have privileges far beyond the actual inheritance, when in fact they do not.
