How much time do you spend on MyLot

Australia

Now, be honest. I know that a lot of you spend almost as much time as i do here. I spend around 2-3 hours per day here, responding to discussions and starting my own. Ok, not all in one go, but I keep coming and checking my email to see what is what. How about you? Are we talking hours, minutes or days at a time?

Too much would be the easy answer. No but in all seriousness i use to be on here a lot, a good few hours a day, reading a lot of discussions as well as responding to them and starting them. But then for no apparent reason i just stopped contributing for around 7 months but fear not i am back and ready to spend every free moment i have on here lol

I guess my average per day here would 6 to 8 hours, though I log on and off everytime I feel that my brain doesn't cooperate well with me anymore!LoL There are also times where I can't find any interesting discussions for me to post at, so I just rest for a while and maybe check it out later. In some ocassions, I just rest for a while and maybe multi-task while on mylot just to keep my mind active!;)

So I'm not the only one who spends half their day here! lol. I actually believe that mylot is more beneficial to our minds than most sites. For one, you have to use your brain!

around 3-4 hours, i think. every free hour is spent in mylot. it will just be my two weeks here tomorrow. and there is no doubt that i like it here. i like engaging in the discussion and responding to the discussion i started. probably because i am still new, i am spending as much as many hours i can to mylot. the longest time i spend i think was 7 hours. and it was worth it.

I have to say, I think I have been sitting here nonstop most of the day, maybe 9 hours! lol. Naughty me! No, I have spent a lot of time with my family too and did manage to bring some washing in. This site is seriously addictive but in a good way. I hop you enjoy it as much as I do.

Not much, just abt an hour everyday... Anything more than that and I get bored of it.. U r kinda new here and that's the reason why u can spend almost 2-3 hrs, I also used to spend as much time when I was new here, but as u grow old at mylot, u tend to get bored...

Me get bored? No way! this is my social lifeline! lol. Oh, and I don't like having emails in my inbox that I haven't replied too! lol. It sounds as though you manage your time a little better than I do!

Actually I have to... I get very little time to spend here at mylot while I am at work as there is other work to do as well... I mostly get to do mylot during lunch time.. And when I return home, I don't have the capacity to sit in front of the computer anymore, after sitting infront of it the entire day...

I reckon you must really appreciate the time you spend here then! I can understand not wanting to be on the computer when you get home! There can be too much of a good thing after all!

Yep, children certainly take up a lot of time and energy! I'm lucky that my partner and I are both stay at home parents, so we can both care for our kids and spend time on the computer. I usually now only get a few mins to about an hour in one go, but if I do log in, I stay logged in until it is bed time, that way, I might be able to squeeze in an extra 5 mins between changing nappies and hanging out the washing. A parents work is never done!

As I evaluate it, I spend as much free time as I can on MyLot. I have been here for two days and I have been spending a good four hours per day on it. Responding to discussions in other forums have always been my past time when I have nothing to do so it doesn't really hurt me to hang around here from time to time. MyLot is a nice community and all.

What a great way to spend your spare time. You are using skills that are needed in the every day real world, so it is all good. I wish I had the time and energy to be here all the time, but kids demand and the house still hasn't learnt how to clean itself.

School must come first, but remember that mylot can be of great benefit to your studies too. 3 hours a day is a lot of time to spend here, but as long as you are having fun, then go for it. i've had to cut my hours back over the last few weeks, but I still log in when I get the time.

I am not sure how long I spend here because I come back and spend a few minutes here and a few minutes there. However, lately I have been here a lot. It is relaxing, fun, and easy to participate in. What could be better then all of that while making a few pennies here and there?

At first it was plenty of hours on one day. Then it really dived because of a few things both on mylot and real life. Now I'm trying to get back to multi hour mylot sessions.

Study and work are good things. They keep other skills you have sharp. MyLot would help you with your studies too! Enjoy the time you do spend here!

I used to spend a few hours on mylot each day. I would sign on randomly throughout the day whenever I had free time and respond to a few discussions, and then I usually spent a block of time in the evening doing mylot. Lately, I've been so busy with starting back to school and work, so I haven't been spending very much time on mylot. Now, I sometimes go for a few days without even signing on. I'm trying to get back into posting more though! :)

i mostly come in for around 30 minutes. But today i'm signed in for almost 4 hours. Doing what you ask? Nothing. Abosolutly nothing. I do what you all do here but my earnings is still stuck on $0.32. Someone help me increase this. I try starting new deiscusssion, but that only give $0.01. Replying to discussions like this never brings me any earnings. I try a lot but all in vain.

I think responding to discussions is better than starting them. If you spend the time using your brain cells in a positive way, then the amount of time spent here is highly justifiable.

It can be tough to find time to do things you want to do these days, I know having 4 kids and another on the way. I used to be here for hours at a time when I first joined, I really needed the escape, but now, I get maybe an hour if I am lucky, and that is usually around midnight.

Well, I'm new here and this is only my second day posting. My first day was yesterday and I posted 43 responses and 10 discussions. I made a whole 63 cents. I was online for about 4 hours. Not too good of money. Today I have been online posting for about 3 hours and will continue till supper time. So that would be another 2 hours. So in total I will be in mylot for about 5 hours today. I might come back later tonight after my hubby goes to bed. He doesn't like that I spend soo much time on the computor. He feels negelected.

I will stick around long enough to see a first payment. Then if I really do get paid, which I'm pretty sure from what I've read, I will stay.

I would say an average of 3 hours per day would be a good guess. I, too, don't spend it all at the same time but patches throughout the day. I have definately found that it gives my brain the intelectual stimulation I've been lacking as a stay-at-home mom!

I totally agree! Adult time is very important! lol. I have just been here for ages in one stretch though, when I should be having a shower and going to bed! Gotta be up in a few hours! lol. My husband thinks that anything that slows my crabby moods down is a good thing, so he doesn't complain! lol.

I have to admit that I have put off chores that need to be done so I could stay on here longer. I have also noticed that I am not quite as grumpy when I get to spend some time on myLot. I think it is because it is "me" time, but I don't have to be away from the house to enjoy it.
