No more rush hours on Mylot!

Usually we can see lots and lots of posting on Mylot at the end of the month. But this time Mylot is just calm and quiet at the end of the month also. Atleast my friends are not active any more like they used to. At the end of the January I saw friends posting hundreds of discussions in hour. And in getting response also is was so quick that if you start a discussion in 10 minutes you will get more then 10 responses, because people were so busy with making points. Now why it is so quiet! Are my friends are not very interested in Mylot any more or spending time more time at other site? I am just curious. What do you think about it?

Hi Terry, I hope you will make your $10 before the month end. Yes there in next month always, and no payment in this month means more money next month:).

You hit the nail on the head there Sweetlady. I refuse to go crazy trying to get to ten dollars by a certain point in time. If I make it, I do. If I don't make ten bucks by the deadline, it just means more moolah next month. Focusing too much on the money sucks all the fun out of everything. I would rather just enjoy myself and let the money be a by-product.

If you are talking about roughly now, it's because myLot has been down, haha. :P It just got back but even so, I think it may be intermittent. One just can't post if it takes forever to load a page. There is another trend near the end of the month though - people marking their best responses. ;-)

Maybe your friends are doing some other things. You see, people change. You may not know, but some of them might found a new job. A very nice job. Or if not, they are busy with some family issues or love life. You cannot always stay in a single thing. You will find another way out here because we have this desire for something new.

Hehe, that's true, I think everybody is saving their discussions for after the mysterious upgrade..lol When the upgrade happens I'm sure every other user will be asking about it, opinions, whether we like it or not...phew! I can only imagine..:P I wasn't on mylot for long yesterday, I was out with friends shopping for my trip, could make only a few responses at the end of the day. I'm so excited about it that my mind is nowhere near mylotting..lol Too busy with other things.

Hey Lady! I am still here. But,my search for work has led me out of the house. I also have been busier with carting my children to appointments. Nobody has a car but me! My brain hasn't been functioning well lately. It is clouded with thoughts of other things. When I do come up with a topic to discuss I post it immediately or will lose it. Huggers to you!

I used to be very active on mylot.com posting new discussions and responses daily. For the past 2 weeks, I was rather busy preparing for my retirement that I hardly had time to post. But everyday, I would definetely log into mylot.com to check my earnings as well as do post some responses. Not many but at least 5 onwards. I did slacked on new discussions but not for long. By middle of April 2007, I should be back in full swing again.

I am one of those friends that has been "away" for a while. I read all the discussions that come into my email from my friends - but I have had a real lack of motivation for a few weeks now. I just have nothing to say... I will try to be better next month.

I think it has a lot to do with the weather being so nice. It has been in the 60's- early 70's here in Pennsylvania and I've been out with the kids just enjoying the nice sun! They may have gone elsewhere to post too. I know some have. I enjoy mylot just to talk to other people and the payment is a bonus.

I go crazy on mylot till I reach payout. Then I take things a bit slower here. I do need to leave myself time to write my poems. I have a deadline to reach and I still have the poems to write. There are some days that I just can't think straight and I don't even get on the computer. Every now and then I just take a break, a time out. Sometimes the responses have a lot to do with what time zone you are in. Winter also sends people to their computer more.

I think some members left when they found this wasn't a quick money making site. I'm here as often as my time allows. I try to at least check in once a day but that doesn't always happen!

I'm still very interested in MyLot. I find though, the more friends I make, and the more discussions I post, the longer it takes to go through them all. Which is not a bad problem to have. However, my computer quit Saturday and now I'm in the process of moving. Perhaps some of the others have spring fever and are having fun outdoors?

Well I am usually one of those who bombards the system this late in the month. I for one just do not have anything interesting to start a new discussion about right now. I do think a Lot of people have left MyLot to pursue other income. The bigger we got the less we were paid, so it deterred those who were not here for any other reason than making money. I am hoping to come up with some discussions soon. another thing you will always notice on the internet is the season. When the weather starts getting warm less people are on the internet. During the winter months there nothing much to do other than watch TV and be online. I know I am outside now working in my flowers and lawns until the sunsets, which is 7PM, then I have to prepare dinner, get a shower and get ready for bed. This has cut down on my hours here at MyLot. So, I think there are probably a lot more people who are out and about now.

I think folks had got a bit fed up with the continual earnings decreases .. I know I did .. but I am just getting back into the flow again .. see how it goes .. and if I can earn a decent enough amount for my time then I'll be beavering away again .. hehe !!

mmm maybe the explanation (at least for me) is that I don't have much time to post here. I have opened a blog...and when I have some time, I go to update it ;). I am studying to get soon my graduation...so I have no time to write here :(. I am still at 2$ from 2 months...and I am earning no money. But I find some time to clic on my paid emails...so I am earning in the same way ;). It's a pity...because myLot makes me earn more and I enjoy writing on here. When I will have more time, I will write more here!

I can't speak for the rest of the world, but in England the weather is absolutely gorgeous! In fact I'm not even sure why I'm in the house now! Although for the past 4 weeks i've gotten really busy with work and didn't have much time for mylot, perhaps that's what is happening elsewhere or maybe some people have just become plain bored of mylot sometimes I can't find a decent discussion to answer and end up answering stupid stuff that I'd not usually get into!

I think that life is just busy right now for them; I know it is for me. I had a lot going for the past month so I did not make my 10 amount for March. I hope that I do better this month.

It has been quiet. I have not had the same amount of time to devote now that we are so busy on the ranch. I would love to spend more time, but I see that this discussion is 6 days old already. I hope I can do some catching up. I have friends that I have not heard from in a while.
