ARGG!!! Missed $10 by 2 cents!!!!

July 11, 2008 9:43am CST
I had a goal for yesterday to make it to the $10 point. I just looked at my stats and I missed it by .02! Now I go through the "What if..." What if I had posted one more discussion. What if I had made a better response. What if I had uploaded another image. What if, what if , what if. Ok I really am not hat upset. I KNOW I will hit that tomorrow. I look forward to pay out next month. Perhaps I need to set a new goal. Try to reach $20 by the end of the month. Let's see that is 20 days so all i have to do is get at least 50 cents a day. That seems doable. What is the most you have made in a single month? How did you do that?

2 cents is nothing!!!!!! Im sure you'll get $20 next time. I have a grand total of 16 cents right now. LOL Im hopin to get at least $10 every month and put it into a piggy bank just incase gas prices jump too high! The was they are rising now, I'll have to spend my whole day on here starting and responding to discussions!

lol. That is a nobel goal. Some things to know is the more post you have on your post count the more you make. It seems that around 100 my amount started to grow. Alot of that had to do with the fact that I started uploading images with almost every discussion I start. Images if you put a good discription that matches your discussion will get you more money too.

i do a search for them and find some that are puplic and not copyrighted. It's not hard to do. I use Goodsearch.com Of course I use that for all my searching needs. It helps out my local church.

Moin, there is not a cost per discussion. Here are some tips that have worked VERY well for me. 1) Post 3-5 discussions a day. 2) Comment on every response. 3) Find discussion that you would enjoy to be involved in. 4) Send a friend request to the person that started that discussion 5) Put that friend on notify ON. that way you can see when they start a new discussion. 6) Respond to your friends discussion (If they interest you) 7) ALWAYS think before you type. It looks to me that you are doing that. 8) When you can upload an image whenever you start a discussion. Make sure the picture has something to do with the discussion and put a good description in for the piture. That helps alot 9) Forget about the money and have fun!!!

The most I have made is $14+ in one month. I don't look to see how much I'm earning and then I get a nice surprise. i am very 'che sara, sara' sort of person and just let it happen. Having said that, I'm over half what I normally do in one month and the month is not half way over yet so.... who knows? As long as there is a lot of fun going on here then I will be participating and earning. Happy posting!

Hello, doubleloveyou! Oh, that was pretty close! Two cents! How close, really! Now, why do you say that you'll try to make it for the next month? Isn't it until July 15th? You have 4 days to make 2 cents, and you'll easily reach it, I'm sure. This discussion will have granted you all the money you wanted. I also hoped to reach payout this month yet, but I need around 3.5 dollars. I'm working hard on these four days, but I guess it won't be enough. It will have to wait until August, won't it? But, if I have to wait until August, I'll try to reach at least 30 Dollars! Respectfully, Munhozmib.

The cutoff is the end of the month. As long a I make it by the 31st I am ok. Yeah I know I have already made it so no big. I am shooting for $20 by the end of the month.

I don't know what the most was I made in a single month, somewhere between 11 and 15 dollars I guess... I was unemployed at the time and had a lot of free time on my hands inbetween interviews for new jobs and searching through the adds. I wasn't active daily but I certainly was active quite a lot and hadn't any referrals at that time being. My highest earning in one day this month were $2.13.

That is awesome Cyber. That is quite abit for one day. I have been pretty active today so I wonder how much that will be. I'll see tomorrow.

Well so far I've made ~3.80, haha. Though that's because I've only just started here two weeks ago and am still getting accustomed to the place. However, I think that $20 is perfectly doable provided you get in enough posts and discussions every day (maybe a referral or two, though I'm not sure how I'm going to get any myself).

The key to bigger money is your own discussions. I do have some referrals but most of my oney came from just starting discussions and commenting on those who respond.

Oh no! That really sucks. I hate when that happens to me when I almost have enough but just quite not there. But hang in there at this rate you will get to the $20 point by this time next month and it will be as if you got it this time. LOL I enjoy being on here at myLot and meeting all the nice people and discussing interesting topics. The money is what brought me here but the discussions are an integral part of this site. By the way, thanks so much for your tips on how to use myLot to its full capacity. I think you pretty much got it in a nutshell. Thanks again and I know you will make the payout next month!

thanks schulzie. I look forward to tomoorow to see how much I made. It has been a slow day so I have been on the lot a lot today. I usually don't do this but can you respond to my discussion on what you picture means. I like the picture and was wondering about it. thanks.

Wow! You were so close.. I think that if you are that close, myLot should let you have it on this one. But, now, that you know what to do the next time, you will be ahead of the game.. And I am sure you will have a good bit on your payment! Hang in there, and Good Luck!

For me, sometimes I had %0 sometimes lesss than that and there are times also that I got 70 0r 80 and that I am spending more time in replying and posting. It is good to have a goal for the day if you can do it, that's great!!! have fun and good luck.

Wow! That was very close huh?! But you need not worry much for now as you are already assured of payment for the next month. If you do better this month, you might even be lucky enough to hit $20. Good luck to you!

Oh don't you just hate it when that happens? I have had that happen to me several times too. I don't really set posting goals for my time here. I just answer the discussions that are interesting to me and read other discussions to learn new things. I don't know what my record earnings were, but I am sure I got there by posting, posting, posting!

I know I will make it. I know if I would have pushed yesterday I could have pulled it off. But that is not the way i used Mylot. One thing I did notice is that my referrals we active yesterday which made it easier, other wise I would have been 14 cents off. :)

Don't worry there is always a next time. YOu'll earn more next time.. why are you hurrying to get such more earning. Just post and enjoy asking and answering your views. Thats how people have fun in mylot isn't it?
• United States
11 Jul 08
I do that. I really don't look at the money until now. the reason I stay here is I love the conversations. I see this part of it as a type of game. What i don't do is I don't just post on peoples discussion for the sake of the money. It has to be something that draws me to it. Thanks for the response.

Wow I don't know if I have the time to sit and type for hours to reach that kind of a goal. I guess if you have a goal it is still a goal no matter what you set for yourself. I think that it can be done I guess if you already are making progress towards it. I just come in when I have the time but it is a nice little thing that comes out of it when you are done. Today I had so many things on my mind and it can be quite hard when you have so much to do that you can create a little time for ourselves to have a bit of fun and in this case earn a bit along the way.

I know that it seems you failed, but I really feel you worked hard and for some reason, it didn't work out that way, but at least, now you have something to work towards. I just got my pay out the other day. Paid a bill with that too. Hope you keep plugging away on here with the rest of us.
12 Jul 08
I still haven't reached payout yet, but I have set myself the goal to do it by the end of this month. I probably only make about 5 cents a day, and am not on mylot as much because work is pretty hectic right now. I am too tired to do much once I get home. Good luck reaching your $20 goal!

Hi there doubleloveyou, LolSome time i cough in that situation. I really hooping i can reach my target today. Yesterday i was expecting my earning will grow up until it reach $12.00 but turned out i still need $0.02 more (it's $11.98) Well i be able to see tonight the increase but it's not the same expect feeling yesterday. For one single month yesterday i manage to collect $8 -$9 close isn't it? This making me shaking of tidy up. LOL But i will never give up. I will try tomorrow for good earning. So lets see what i got today. Happy posting!!! OoXx`dian
