Hmm what I get from mylot is not as much as how much I have to pay for my internet service, but I use the money I get from mylot in another HYIP program to grow it.

I don't think you can earn decent money online. Its good that myLot pays us for our contributions but you can't rely on that. You're better off with a job.

Most of the money I've made has been through contacts with other admins who paid my way into programs and gave me marketing tools I've used to earn additional income. I've never had to pay them back, but I've worked for them in exchange for the help, just doing things like editing their sites for bad grammatical errors and such. Through this I've learned to build websites and set up scripts and I've aquired a lot of good scripts and software and ebooks that I can sell any time I want to make more money.

What if I told you that there money to be made at myLot would you agree. They are giving you the forum (a free meeting place)so that you can make contacts, friends, share idea's and practice how to express your idea's and opinions by writing. You might not make much writing here, but you could make the right contact or find the right opportunity that could make you money. As far as my DSL and electric costs they would be about the same whether I used the internet much or not. I'm here in Dallas, TX and my SBC thru AT&T DSL only costs $15 a month...I run as many as 4 computers and a out of my home office. Don't give up. Ciao

I have earned some pocket money defenitely online.In the begining7 months ago it was not enough to cover intrenet cost and electricity bill.Now i think iget money to cover all that.I get checks and money via Paypal for my work online..You ned to look out for good sites www.ammas.com is a site which left me disappointed for long with no pay for my work of 2 hors daily online in the begining.After i year I got 220$ as cheque.So my advice is it takes time to get an income online based on what you do. Wait patiently.Think creatively. I write articles for helium.Month of feb 43$.I see a rise every month.

I only participate on mylot. The earnings vary from month to month. Last month I made $33 and this month I will have $24. It does cover the cost of the electric bill plus a bag of cat litter or food. I spend a lot of time here recently because I am out of work. So, anything is better than nothing at all right now. I do spend about 5 whole hours here per day.

I don't think you can really rely on mylot as your source of income. Like what you said, you spend hours and hours a day on the net and this consumes electricity which in turn adds to your electricity bill. And after using the internet for almost the whole day, you'll find out the next day that you only earned less than 0.50 cents. Well as for me, I think the money we're earning here is juts a bonus. Where can you find a site who pays you by just posting your views and opinions? It's not a bad deal after all.

No its impossible to depend on earning here but not only earning we learn a lot here. We learn at the same time we earn thats a very good part of myLot. The earning is slow but i should say its worth it as most of the lotians here just write whatever that comes to their mind hehehe and many are here with poor english like me. If we can manage the time limit than i should say its a great site. Happy earnings here this site is not a scam like other paying site, so good luck here

I spend on average around 10 hours a day on Mylot with breaks in between to rest my eyes. I joined three weeks ago and earned $20 before the end of the month. Now I'm almost to my minimum payout for this month, and so I earn enough to keep me in my favourite Lush products lol. I can't say that I'd earn enough for my electricity Bill because that changes from month to month, although this month it should be a little less because we changed all our light bulbs to energy savers. We'd have to wait and see when the bill comes in lol.

Actually my husband pays for our cable and internet and it costs about $200. If I had to pay for it, I would have to work 24 hours and get no sleep. I have made an average of $34 a month since the end of Dec. I have no time for anything else. I want to write more on my novel but have only been able to get 30 minutes a day at the most. I sing, and I can only get 30 min the most for that as well as for my learning Spanish or Italian, 20 min for both. But I am paying for my computer, and since it is a Pentium 4 and soon to be obsolete, I will have to pay for a better one. Plus I need a new printer, include that the exercise I am not getting, the getting up early in the am, usual housework, and stuff. Not that encouraging is it?

no way are my online earnings concomitant with the time and effort i spend on this site! i always feel short-changed...literally!! i mean, i always feel that i get paid peanuts for my labours. but the wierd thing is that money isnt the primary objective anymore for me spending time here. i just love that i can rant and rave all that i want and get my creative juices flowing at the same time. so money is pretty much an added bonus...but i DO wish that the bonus was a wee bit more. as for my gross, i usually get around 20 cents for 2 hrs i spend here, approximately. i know its low, but i have to take time and sift through topics that appeal to me before i jot down my response.

i was also very confused about that in starting i also thought abt that in the same manner but now i can say that if u are earning around 10 to 15 dollars from this then it is sufficient because its more than your net charges and in every organisation u are paid for your time devoting if u are devoting time here also then wht the problem

i have just started with this forst thing. i dont think i would be interested in snyhting else like this unless it really pays better. mylot in fact i think pays too slowly and less. i am not sure about other sites. but then if you are working otherwise than it is difficult to make tiome for internet evaryday...
