Do you REALLY earn from MyLot ?? I don't think so..

I don't mean to say that they don't payout. Of course they do and they are legitimate.. But have you ever pondered over this?? What I mean is that your internet and electricity bills that you will have to pay will naturally exceed your mylot earnings!! And that means that you are running this job at a 'LOSS' !! But no problems for me as my internet connection is free!! I have no idea about the cost of internet and electricity in your country, but in India, it does exceed.. Do correct me if I am wrong.. So this is what I say: Mylot is only for fun and not for money.. But the advantage is that some of your expenditure is reimbursed!! Happy mylotting..

I agree that you cannot make a living out of mylot... but for me personally, I don't pay any electricity of internet bills, so I guess whatever I make is just a small income which I can use to buy junk with... You can barely buy anything.. but at least they pay you, unlike some other social networks.. (I won't mention names..) You just feel appreciated...

I have always maintained that you will never get rich here on MyLot but that the fun element is more important. Getting to see different opinions from people around the world and enjoying the discussions and debates. I don't earn very much from this, and although the little I do earn does help, it's more the enjoyment

If people are thinking Mylot is a job, then they are wrong from the start. this is nto a job, this is website that offers a small incentive for people to remain active and to continune their day to day use of the site. Mylot is for fun and interaction with other people not a paycheck.

ou are thinking wrong about this. Because noone is using internet and computer only for mylot. This is just a fun and then they pay us some amount for our posts. If you think we are only here for earn money from mylot then you are wrong. For example if you say i am here only for mylot and i am wasting my electricity and internet then i can say that i am earning enough from mylot and these earnings can pay my bills. So i am using next and computer totaally free now. Thanks

I usually have my computer on anyways, and the interent connection is monthly that it's same even if I dont use it, so I think it's great to earn some extra income. I am actually on my way to buy something from the money I have earned online, but think that I have to save some more first ^^

I have been online for opver 15 years now and feel that this DOES PAY as I am on all day anyhow all the time during the day. I am my fathers caregiver and home all the times so this is my job and I also so many other things to earn as well online. My connection is very cheap. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Some people do make quite a bit of money here - and I mean that they can cash out every month. Me, it takes a couple months to cash out because I don't always have time to be here. I'm here for the friends and good chats, the payouts are just a little bonus.

No this isn't a place to get rich but I would have internet connection anyway and still have the bills to pay so I might as well earn a little bit. I do enjoy it too.

How can you put a price on the wisdom imparted to us from the members here at MyLot?

You sure are right bout the earnings at myLot. I think that it is only good for time pass and you get a bit of cash for just talking and discussing with other people. But surely it is not enough for charges like bills and taxes. But still people do respond to stuff because they know that they are getting money unlike other forums etc where people join and forget about it.

LoL I have earned 55 cents. Hardly not worth my efforts but being a stay at home mom I guess I can use every penny I can get. At this rate it will take me FOREVER to get to my payout of 10 dollars!!

good, seems you are really good at finance. the thing is that i am not using internet only for mylot. i have twenty four hours unlimited internet, and in free time, i just log in to mylot and be active with my discussions. and i always keep my laptop switched on as i would be downloading something. i mean to say that i am not spending anything extra solely for mylot. so, i am at break even even if i am getting only $10. that is only the cost of spending my time in mylot. but i dont feel that i am really spending my time as i always join interesting discussions. take care...

I think that if I had internet and electricity ONLY to be on Mylot then yes it woudl be a loss BUT since I have both anyway its not...Besides, the money I make here is mine..my husbands job pays for the bills etc so its a gain for me all around not a loss..

Mylot is not my only source of income. For me, it is more a source of fun and relaxation than a source of income. so, I don't consider posting here as "work." I am hardly on the Internet. I come online only when I am free, and I post and enjoy reading and responding. I guess it is ok if taken this way because you don't lose much. I have already received my first payout from Mylot. Really cool! Cheers and Happy Mylotting.
