Do you always do the same amount of work every day. Do you set your self a goal of how many new discussions you open. How many you answer? Or how much you want to get. I dont I used to have a goal of 10 posts per day but that is not possible in my case. Somethimes I do more somethimes less. As for new discussions somethimes I dont open a new one for weeks.

I do not really set a goal. I use to when I had more time on my hands. Now I just come here and keep track of what I do daily to figure out how much I have to do to reach payout by the end of the month. This month I am a bit ahead, I have over $5 in my account.

With the old way of paying I used to get payed every second month but the new way is going to make that probably every month now. I used to spend lots of time on the computer before my son started school and now that he is out of the house for 2 days I find that I have less time ( I belived that once he was gone I would have more time). So I only spend about 2 hours a day on the computer (that is total with e-mails and news and other things) but I try to be active on mylot.

On the old system I would get every other month, maybe every third month. I do most of my myLotting at work while I have time to kill. Overall, I may spend an hour here.

I have a routine that I follow. I post 5 new discussions a day and I respond to 30-50 discussions a day. I like having a routine and having things in order. It keeps me focused and on track. If I just randomly answer things then I tend to get side tracked and nothing gets done. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have 3 weeks and a bit till I go on my long (3 month) holiday plus I have my b'day on friday and my husbands name day on saturday. I am so busy I hardly have any time for the internet. I used to be able to do a lot (well not as much as you) but still ok, now I spent like 30 min a day on mylot and I dont have time to do much. I am lucky if I do 3 replies to other peoples discussion and probably open 2-3 discussions a week. When I get back from holiday I will do more expecially since I will need to practice English more as I would have no one to talk english with over there.

Thank you for that I am sure I will have an ok time. I wish I have more time for my lot as right now I cant do much and I feel like I am leting my friends down a bit but it would get back to normal once I am back I am sure.

This is something I hadn't thought about! I generally don't have any particular goal in mind, I just like to participate in discussions. It's a fun way to keep myself busy when I'm having a slow day at work (shhh) or am snowed in at home. I like to start my own discussions because I have lots of questions haha.

haha, I generally do all my work and then get online, I'm not slacking off or anything so they generally don't care. It's just sometimes there's not a whole lot of work to do so I just have to pass time and answer phones!

I used to, but not anymore. Back then, I could almost post to more or less 30 well-thought discussions a day. I could earn more than a dollar, but time and mylot has changed. I could only see a number of good discussions made, at least that's what I see. Right now, I only log on here and respond to only a few discussions that interests me.

I find that after the 20th of every month there is less interesting discussions as people try to reach pay out they just write new things to make up their earnings and than after the 1st its all back to normal.

You may have a point there, sometimes I see others absent here after receiving their earnings. Others simply post and respond too, some are just waiting for an opportunity and so on..

It always varies, depending on how much time I have, I've been on more over the last few days, but sometimes I wonn't come on for a aday or two.

I do come every day but sadly I cant be active as much as I want simply because I dont have the time lately but I enjoy the discussions a lot.

I no longer have a goal for daily activity on mylot - I just go with the flow... but I have a hard time thinking of this as work. it is no more work than talking with a friend on the phone is work. If I did think of it as work I would sign in and out at the same time every day and I would not let other things distract me. I would take a lunch break and a personal break every 3 hrs to use the potty and stretch. I would not take any other breaks because this is work and must be disciplined. I just do not feel that mylot is a job.

Hello! No I don't set any goals as then it wouldn't be as much fun for me. I enjoy commenting on topics that interest me or that I could contribute some positive input. Sometimes I don't even come in here for a couple of days. This is really more about making friends and exchanging ideas and comments than about the number of posts for me.

when you dont set a goal you are free to do what you want you are not restricted in any way.

No not at all...I have real life things that need to be taken care of so when I'm busy with that sort of stuff I may not make it in here at all..For example yesterday I was very busy around the house and only did about 10-15 posts..then there are days when I have some free time and can post an easy 40 or so posts....It all depends on what I have goin on each day..
• Australia
11 Mar 08
WOW you can do 10-15 on a busy day I do less than that when I have lots of free time.

I can't do always the same amount, because I'm not at home for almost the whole day, and I come here very rarely.;__; I'd like writing more here, today I'm trying to write a bit to increase my amount of money and posts :D

Well, my input in here depends on my mood everyday. How chatty I am is based on the number of posts I post per day, how long my responses are. Well, I have a goal of exceeding over 10 posts per day. If I have done to get over 10 posts per day, then I'll aim for 20... and so on and so forth.

i dont. it depends on the kind of day it is. i am more likely to have more posts at home than at work... and if i do get around it.. i have better time to posts and would usually make more post if i have nothing much to worry about, like work and stuffs :)
• Australia

I know that if I work and if that work involves computers I would have more posts on my lot. Who said house work is not work I usually sit on the net after everyone has gone to bed.

No. I do not do that. All that depends on my time that day. If the network is good and I am free, I will pose more responses. And if the topics are interesting, I will pose even more. I do not read as fast as the native people do. Sometimes I have to read again to get the idea due to the language differences. But mylot is really a good place to go. I won't turn on my computer, not knowing what to do. Besides, I can use the language.

No, I never can predict how far can I go when I do posting in mylot. Depend on how much time I have in a day. Sometime I have plenty, but sometime I couldn't even login to mylot because don't really have time.

Somethimes I log in thinking I will be few minutes and end up staying for few hours and somethimes I have lots of time but I cant think of what to write

I am very erratic with my postings to here. Sometimes I log in and answer several posts and submit a couple of my own and other times I don't log in for ages or I have a blank out and can't think of a thing to talk about. I call it verbal constipation. I find it easier to answer a discussion rather than start one and when I do start one it doesn't usually get much interest or response.
• Australia

Somethimes I really want to start a new discussion but my brain does not or I start commenting than I think its not what I want to say.

It depends on the amount of free time I have. I am here most of the time I am free...and mylot. Some days I am here longer...and I myLot more then...some days I have time just for a handful of responses...and some days I do not log on at all. It all depends on the amount of time I have on hand.

I think that it is the same for most of us and by now I would have belived that we just cant come up with new discussions but everyone still does.

no its never same all the days. i do mylotting when i get little time between work. so its never the same all the day. i want to get at least 2 hours devoted to it. it is not possible now.

I think its better to set goal in time instead of posts that way even if you dont write a lot at least you read what people are posting.

I can't set a goal even if I like too. I only have limited time staying here in front of my computer I have some work to do and kid to take care. I stay here for a couple of hour and I do as many as I can. Start a new discussion and responding to some. If I set a goal I have to stay longer I will do that if I have enough time to do it but as of now I can't. I want to stay longer to elevate my earnings too but as I said I only have a limited time.

That is the whole thing I want to do 10 posts but I want them to have some quality so to do 10 a day would take me a long time and I cant do that right now. Its good if you can continue that way.
