I like mylot, and not just because we get paid on here for writing and chatting with each other, through this forum. Today I recieved payment from mylot and I got to tell you it is a motivator for me to recieve payment and to also see I am close to make April's payout. Does being paid from mylot motivate you to write more?

diansinta, the reason you haven't reached your $10 payout yet, is because you are responding to people's post with only a few words. I looked through your responses and noticed that you use a few words as possible. What you need to do it the opposite of what you have been doing. Make sure your as descriptive as possible, if you are you will make more money. With the post you have 1225 as of my response to this, you should have already reached payout. A good rule of thumb for your responses, is if it is less than 6 sentences, then go back and make it even more descriptive. I very rarely leave a response or comment that is less than that. Good luck. Happy earnings all.

It is really why I came to this site and why for now I am still here. I keep track though in a little notebook and I see the money accumulate daily and then the adjustments too when they tinker with it. I have already made payout also so from now on it is gravy. Good to have the tools to motivate ourselves and continue in a possitive way.

It's a big motivator for me. So is seeing my earnings every morning. I love being here, discussing, debating, sharing my view point and meeting new people. It's all great and the fact that we get money on top of it just makes it even better. This is where I make the bulk of my money at times so I'm here a lot and every time I see the money going up it just makes me want to be even more active.

Obviously you are a lot better at this than I am because we have roughly made the same number of postings, however I am JUST about to qualify for the first payment of $10 whereas it sounds like you are almost at the second payment and you've probably been paid more than $10 the first time as you seem to be more motivated than I am. It takes a bit more than $10 to get me motivated ;-)

A little bit... I mean, I originally came here cause someone referred me here and told me that "I could make money by just talking online," but I do love the conversation and the different perspectives I get from this site. That being said, I think the money does keep me answering a little more than it would if it were just a regular forum... but I would still be around quite a bit, regardless of the money.

I also would be on here regardless of the money, but it is a nice bonus, and it makes me want to break last months totals. Who knows maybe you all will see me on here just a little bit more. Thanks for your input.

While, I am not here for the money, I guess its kind of noce to see how fast it grows. I have not reached payout yet, actually I'm only about half way there. But I see the money issue as kind of a challange. Kind of a wy to see how fast I can get to payout. Take care!

I think I would write less if I didn't see the pennies keep ticking up. It takes a lot to make anything though, so it can't be the primary motivator. This is a great concept and I'm glad that there are people who are actually making money doing it. This seems like one of the few legitimate ways to earn a few dollars on the internet. Mostly since I haven't made payout levels yet, I'm on here just for fun. I've got $1.24 right now just sitting staring at me.

It certainly does. True I am a chatter box and probably would still be here without it but I have to confess that much less time for sure. The pay really gets me to come here each day and answer posts that I find interesting, start new discussions etc. NO matter how many times I got paid from myLot it alwasy gives me a special feeling when I find out I got paid :)

Yes it's a good motivation, although i saw many people confirming that it pays and my own referrer told me he was paid 3 times, it's not about believing it or not but actually getting the money although it's small is what motivates us.. I was going much slower after I reached payout level last month and this month started very slow for me, now I'm motivated to be more active.
