Where is everyone from? And how did you find out about this site? I'm American--form New England. I am a member of another online community powerfulintentions.com (where people discuss the law of attraction). Over there, one of the members referred me to mylot. I thought it would be mostly Americans, but I was surprised to find it was such an international community. Most of the peope I've met were from India, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, and other parts of Asia. I've met a few Americans and Europeans, but not as many as I would have expected. I'm just surprised that so many people abrad are coming over to myLot. It's pretty cool!

Hi Tina. First of all, I congratulate you for starting with 9 stars. You have just completed 100 posts to be eligible to get stars and you start with 9. Great! Well, I thought on a similar line as you thought and I was surprised to see the same statisrics you have mentioned. I came to know about myLot at Yahoo Answers. That is also a nice programme. What is good to see is that inspite of so much diverse crowd at myLot, the forum is pretty cohesive and closely knit. MyLot is a front running example of globalisation. In a way this gives us hope that globalisation may do lot of good to all.

I'm from China. I went to a forum, and one of members referred me to mylot. Do you know where the most people come from? I'm very surprised that you have 9 stars with 106, I have 5 stars when I reach 100 responses. It seems easy for you to post responses, your native language is English, and mine is Chinese, so I hope you can correct my mistakes about my words. OK? Do you mind to be my friend? Please add me, thank you and good luck.

That's great that you were able to work your way from 5 to 9 stars. I was happy to start out with 9 stars--I just joined this community a few days ago, but I got some really good advice from other members who helped me a lot. Your English is fine, especially for a non native speaker. I just sent you a friend request.

I'm from Southampton, England and I found about about this site through a friend on another forum. Everyone seemed to think it was fairly good so I came to check it out. I love the fact there is such a mixed community here, helps you see many different perspectives! x

I agree--the international community provides a different perspective. I've learned a lot. I love England! I was there for a few weeks with my choir and orchestra in high school. We spent most of our time in the city, but we did get to see a little of the country. I would love to spend a year studying at the Royal College of Music.

I've been meeting a lot of people from the Philippines on myLot. It's cool! Interesting, I also heard about myLot from a friend over at powerfulintentions.com, but she doesn't come around here much either. Funny that you ended up being more active than your referer. Maybe she's on vacation--it's that time of year.

Wow! I've never been to Portugal. It's supposed to be beautiful, so I've heard. I was in Brazil for 2 weeks performing with a music group--South American Portugues is quite a bit different than European Portuguese that's for sure!

Great to meet you too. I've been on myLot for less than a week so far, but I'm getting the hang of it (I think). I've never been to Arizona--would like to see that part of the country sometime.

I am an American who was born in New York. I moved from New York to Florida about 3 years ago and I don't like this state at all. I was searching for ways to get paid online and it took me a couple of months before I finally discovered Mylot. I found Mylot on another blog made by someone who was working from home. He had a bunch of links of online earning programs and Mylot was one of them. I was lucky to have found that blog otherwise, I probably wouldn't be here.

I'm a British-born Nigerian - living in London. I found out about myLot from a couple of other sites. After coming across another recommendation about it yesterday, I thought it was time I joined. Early days yet, but so far, so good. I'm enjoying the discussions. BrownEyed.

I'm from the US as well - I live in New Mexico, not far from the US/Mexico border. I found out about myLot from WAHM.com, a work-at-home website I visit often. So far I've really enjoyed myLot and reading the responses from people all over the world. It's been very interesting!
