Do you set yourself a target here? Do you ever reach it? Or do you just post and respond for the fun of it? I just do it for the fun of it. If I was to do it for the money I would never be able to get off the computer!!! :-)

Hi elemental69! I admit before, I have a goal each day to post at least a hundred responses so I can have at least a dollar in my account everyday but that goal didn't last long. haha.. I got pressured and stressed and i don't enjoy responding anymore. I guess, that goal lasted for three days and now, I am just posting for the fun of it and if I am inspired or moved somehow by the discussion and as a courtesy to friends also. I am enjoying it more even though I am not earning much. Take care and have a nice day.

100 a day!!! I wouldnt be surprised that you were stressed out! The best day I ever had was 39c, but I usually earn about 10-15c a day. So it will probably take a while to reach payout lol.... Thanks for your response, :-)

I don't set a target here, since I prefer my reputation here than my points or earnings. I also have to consider the post I make, since it has to be in good quality as much as possible. There are lots of discussions to ost at here, but I only have limited knowledge to most of them so I can never be sure of how much or how many I'd end up here. My only habit here is, that I make sure that the number ending on my response count will always be in even number whenever I log out. With this, I can make sure and monitor if ever I have deleted posts (discussions started and responded to).

Hi raijin, That is a very good idea about even numbers. I never know when a discussion that I have replied to has been deleted. I have sometimes noticed that my earnings would be lower than I would have thought they would be. I must try the even numbers. :-)

I personally have been a member here for over a yr, and personally back in the old days, used to do not too bad with this site, but have seen a lot of changes to where it is a lot harder to Cash out here like it used too. But the good thing, is this site still continues to pay. But as for a Target... Since I am also quite busy, it is hard for me to make sure that I set any Goals on here that could be too hard, as when I fail it could make me STOP wanting to write here, or make me feel useless. So for me, the only thing I try to do, is before it reaches 10 p.m. central time, (which now, is in less that 30 minutes), is set myself a Goal of what number in rating I would like to have before I end this site for the night, and go from there. Some nights like tonight, it might be only 3-5 posts where other days where I have more time, it might be 20 posts. To me, it is about having Fun, meeting people, and sharing in the Fun more than the money, or I would have been long gone from here like many others.

I dont think that it would be as much fun here if people set targets. To me its about relaxing for a few hours me-time. There are many nights (or mornings) that I am still here at 4 or 5am. Thanks for your respose. :-)

hello elemental69, I'm not set a target on my lot, it will makes me more desperade when I'm lag of idea what to talk and write, and makes my writes more unquality, and the worst is my reward will also fall to earth, so at the end it will give me bad effects, I'll be more like today, I write what can I write, and if my spirit of writing and my idea still fresh than I will push my self to write till my arms and finger getting tired to touch the keyboard, what about you elemental69, do you set a target here at mylot, if you could finish your target it will better than without target, but if you fail your target I'm worried it will drop your spirit. imo

YesI know what you mean. No I dont set myself a target either. Most days I will respond to discussions and reply to messages.And I would not be able to think of one good discussion to start. Then some days I wouldnt be able to stop writing!!!! I think trying to reach a target would put myself under too much pressure and then my kids would suffer too. Thanks for your response. :-)

I use to try to set a target. Now, I just type until I can't anymore. If I were doing it for the money, I would not be able to do anything else. Thank God, it is so much fun.

nope, never set a target before. You're right, if we set a target or if it's all for the money, we won't have a life at all lol. We'll be spending all the time mylotting, in front of the computer. As much as I love being on mylot and responding to discussions, i still have plenty of other things to attend to. oh well.

Hi elemental...To begin with I joined it of course for money & until yesterday my earnings were $0.00. But still I went on doing discussions and making friends. I think its just because its so much fun discussing and posting. So I guess after a point everybody just gets so much fond of mylot that it becomes a hobby.So has it become for me. However itfeels great to see your account growing. As far as setting targets is concerned the earnings are quite low so my target is to earn slowly but stadidily and prove that slow & steady wins the race....

No, i just do it for fun... exchanging ideas with my friends here, developing more of myself and learning from every discussions here. But also i find it good that I earn while doing that. But I do not set targets or goals. When i feel like not posting any more then I just read soem of the discussions and responses.

I'm definitely here for fun! I usually have a very full inbox as well... I answer my personal emails first, then kick back my chair and try to answer questions here in the order they came in. I can only sit for about 30 minutes at a time, so I take lots of breaks to do other things.
