Do you ever find yourself putting things off to come here. Have you ever missed work or things like that?

Well considering I am a stay home mom, I set time aside for house work and for coming to mylot and getting some work done. For me I have a schedule so I can keep track of what needs ot be done and what has been done so I can keep things in order. so far it has worked for me.

No - not really, to be honest. I enjoy my time on MyLot, and other Internet sites I visit, but I would never let it get in the way of "real" life if you know what I mean. And there is no way in the world that I could ever earn the same money I get from my job by posting here, so to miss work for it would be very VERY silly!! Have a nice day!

thats a big plus and forsure to your answer. We can never earn as much as a real job here but i think it is extremely addictive blessed be

No I can never put off work for this thing because work pays the bills and not mylot! haaha. I also don't put off my studies, if I have advance classes tomorrow at 9am, I'll go and study coz it's more worthwhile and I get to get out of the house! I do put off exercise though and my tv time. I miss it though. Maybe I'll put off mylot for one day but not now. I'm just a new member and I'm getting addicted! yey!

Missed work???? OMG this is getting serious. I was late one day last week becaause a tiny peek at what my friends were up to at Mylot- but to miss altogether- not yet. when I read the header question on your post I thought heck yeah. all the time. How about you? You an addict too? Mylot fills a need for all of us, an important one. 85 thou all desperate for conversation with kindred souls. Its a he** of a note. Isn't it?

BTW-Zukepr posted a discussion a little while back suggesting that she thought she'd become an addict, and I posted one called procratination is our friend and mylot helps us do it. You might find these an additional chuckle to this topic.

I would never miss a day a work to do this as I definitely make more money working than I do at mylot. However, I do miss other things to work on here like housework, laundry and exercising...all the things I hate doing anyway and don't get paid for!

I actually check out mylot while i am at work. I have noticed that it is getting a little addicting, and sometimes I have to catch up at the end of the day. The people on mylot are so interesting I really like it.

Yup, I should really be going to work this morning, and i've sat here for an hour and a half tapping away quite merrily, luckily I work for myself and the phone gets diverted to my mobile if anyone needs me, but not very good is it? I'm always putting stuff off for mylot and will probably be on here while I'm at work too, although doing other bits inbetween!

No,I don't put things off,in order to access mylot.First of all,because I'm a mylot user only since a few days ago,and I' m on vacation.Secondly,because I do not need a lot of time to discuss on mylot,I simply access my interests,and 1or2 hours a day are enough for me to come here.but in future,when I will have internet at home,maybe I'll access it more often,because I'm really starting to like this!...

hi crizzy, coming here certainly becomes an addiction after a while. I have only missed one day in the last five months and this was christmas day when i was physically unable to log in blessed be

No, I never put off anything to come to mylot. I am a Homemaker with 3 children, all school aged. So in the morning, after i get them off to school, I get on here to check my mail, and I do mylot inbetween messages. After I clean the House, and get things ready for supper, I get back on and work solely on Mylot until the kids get home, and after I put them to bed, I might work on my lot some more, But my Household and kids come first always.

A + to your discussion because it, sometime, really happen. I don't think that is a good idea but it happen. Sometime I have to do something and I visit MyLot! Usually I do that to have a rest and do something different but not always.

I always put time on every activities I do on the whole day. I just can't leave my daily routine for just posting here in myLot. I have to study on my class and do some work after that. When I am done for the whole day activities, then it's time for me to browse the internet and do posting in myLot. I must admit, that sometimes when I have a spare time to relax, I spend more time posting in the site. At first, I decided to join myLot just to earn profit from the site. Later on, I got addicted to it and everything is history. I guess, the site captures my attention and I can't just leave the site so easily. Well, I guess I am not the only one because there are many people here that has the same situation like me.

All the time! This is my last night on myLot till Wednesday so I was trying to get in as much as could, but we where so busy with actual work LOL that I didn't have time and I was thinking about it all night, couldn't wait to get on, now here it is almost time to get off work, and I have barely put a dent into answering my responses to my questions. They only give you two hours at the library, I have been bugging my husband to get a card so I can use his password and pin.

I think that missing work would be totally irresponsible just in order to come and read and post as jobs are going to pay more than this unless you have several people you've referred to mylot who are posting everyday and responding to discussions as well as starting them.

I think I do put things off a bit to come here--but I really am going to have to juggle my time better, or at least really limit spending too much time here as I only have about three thousand other things to do everyday...I don't only spend time here but over at Helium, Gather, etc...and now that in a sense I opened up a "business" selling my crafts over at Etsy--and perhaps might do the same eventually with e-bay, I need more time for my other projects--I really wish there were sixty hours in a day...lets put it that way.

I do all the time, I have a mental list of things that I need to do everyday and then I find myself on myLot and hours have passed and I still have not done the things I got online to do.

I come here to get away from the crap that is going on in my life. It brings me joy and comfort to be here. When I go back to work, I will not be on MyLot as much, but I will be here when I can be.
