MYLOT -- a habit?

Philippines

I admit that when I wake up in the morning it’s the first thing I do, except from brushing my teeth LOL I check my email to see if there are responses to my discussions and if my friends started new ones. My boyfriend calls me a mylot addict, so I guess it’s been a very habitual thing for me! :) I think it’s just okay because I’m learning as well as earning here. What’s in it for you? Has mylot already been a habitual thing for you?

Welcome to Mylot, it does have a way of growing on you. I have been a member for over a year. I have only missed days when I was out of town on vacation. I have to check in everyday too. I might not do much, but I do have to check my emails and see what is going on.

I miss few days as well. The only times I miss logging on here is when I get burnt out from too much myLotting. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yeah. I thought the mylot is not only the forum which we can earn extra cash, but also the website that we can make friends, express emotion, broadcast the whole world with tapping the keyboard.

MyLot is habit forming. I think for me it is trying to get the ten or more posts a day, that will help me. Plus there is all those motivation things like stars and levels and cents.

When I first started here on MyLot, I was on first thing in the morning and stayed on for quite a while. After a few hours I would do the housework and then come back with lunch in hand to see what was happening here. Now that I have a full-time job, I am here less and less. I do enjoy logging on in the evening. Still, I am only on for maybe an hour or two.

I have been a member for about 2 months and you can see from my response number by my avatar that I too am an addict. I do more responding than starting discussions just because I can't think of a lot of topics to post. So I let other members post and I respond to them. I notice you do mostly starting discussions because in this email lot I got 17 discussions from you. In the last few weeks I have received well over 150 discussions from you and I think I have been able to respind to about 125 of them. there are only a few I can't respond to and those ones are usually the ones about news clips you find.

I am like you. Posting in Mylot already becomes a routine job for me. I like posting here and see my posting number increases.

I have to say I have only been at this for a few days but I find myself turning the computer on earlier than i used to. It has already becoe a habit for me. Although I have not started many posts to check on but I am building my friens and when I see that they have started new posts I try to answer as many as I can. I am almost ahving too much fun on Mylot.

I just joined MyLot recently and can't say yet whether it's becoming a habit for me. But I am seeing signs that it is. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Since joining MyLot I have noticed that I spend less time watching silly sitcoms on TV. Between the two I think my time is better spent on MyLot since I'm at least talking to real people and I do learn some things, not the least of which is how to express myself. Now, if the time on MyLot starts to interfere with family or other important committments, then it may be a bad addiction.

I guess one could say i am addicted lol. I come online as much as i can throughout the day, and if i have time when i first wake up then i for sure check mylot. Sometimes while my daughte is eating her breakfast. Even if i SHOULD be doing the dishes lol.

I find that myLot is a good habit for me. There are somethings that I have not been able to talk about even to my closest friends, and it does not mean that you are an addict, because I tend to believe that addiction is a bad thing. I usually go to the myLot page itself, rather than the email to check for discussions and then I will go to my myLot email to check. It all depends on when you first check. I get up, do some exercises, turn on the computer, read the Bible, and then go on to myLot. That way even though I am on it most of the day, it is more of a good habit than an evil addiction.

I am addicted. I do get the bulk of my work done first but I end up here around noon to at least read the news. I don't post everyday. Only if I see something to post to that interests me. But it's okay because it is fun at at least it's better than watching TV. I agree with you that it is nice to be learning and earning at the same time. And it's great for increasing my typing speed.

I can certainly relate. I wake up and turn on the computer. Go directly to myLot and see who started discussions and if I had any responses to my initial discussions. It has become a habit but a good one. It's something I very much enjoy doing. Although the earnings are minimal, it's a perk to be paid for doing something I love to do anyway. Have developed some nice friendships on myLot and the discussions are interesting and sometimes funny.

For me its somewhat of a habit.. it basically comes in spurts. Like one moment I wont log on at all. And then when I do.. It for a considerable amount of time. So its like a segmented habit..

when i firstly started doing mylot.it is in some degree the same with you.i dont feel good to be like that but i manage and arrange it with other things freely with time passed by.i think if you are addicted to it ,dont worry.just let it go.time will change.

Oh visiting mylot a few times a day is definately a habit of mine BUT not an addiction by any means..which is odd really seeing how I have such an addictive personality LOL....but yea its a habit without a doubt...Is that a bad thing though? I mean its not like i neglect my life and necessities etc etc LOL and being here does make me happy not to mention I've learned a great deal being a member here and met some great ppl...So sure its a habit..but its definately one of my better ones ;-)

I don't consider myLot a habit, it's just a pastime hobby. But it depends on the fact if you have time to spend on myLot. If you don't, and still do, then it's a hobby ;) I say kill it with fire!

Yes, I make it a point to make mylot a habit during my free hours. I am always looking forward to learn new things and earn even a little. I'd rather learn and earn than waste my free time with nothing to do. I like it here, the community is warm and people are giving their honest opinions.
