I keep coming back! I have a lot to do this week we have a HUGE job coming up next week so I am doing a lot of prep work. Thing is I want to sit here and "play" on MyLot! This site is addicting!!! Do you ever find your self opening MyLot when you know you should be doing some thing else?? Do you ever find your self leaving a little late in the morning because you just had to get on MyLot FIRST THING?? Do you think MyLot is making us irresponsible???

I use to be like that but not anymore. I only mylot in my spare time now and make sure I attend to my stuff first before logging onto mylot. I use to be quite addicted to this place. Today we have nothing to do, so my son is playing some games and I am catching up on friends discussions. I'm finishing in about 20 minutes and then I'm off to cook dinner and bake some chocolate cookies. I'll be back tonight or tommorrow, we shall see.

I enjoy my lot for the most part i guess. Sometimes I do get on mylot first thing just to see how much I have made so far. I have been busy myself and havent been able to get on here as much as I would like to you know. But, I do find my lot to be addicting.

I think mylot is addict I have to check the discussions on mylot every morning when I get up before I even get dressed. You don't want to miss a good discussion. I should do my dishes and finish mowing the lawn but I think I will mylot instead.

You are right! I once had my first account here deleted for the reason i don't know. It pains me since I've been maintaining the account for long already that time. And I am paid for so many times also. But it never stop me to create a new one again - here it is. Hoping it will not be deleted again. There are times i could not attend to this for months. But as I got my free time. I keeps coming back. This is a good brain exercise, another way to earn even a little, and a therapy since we are all living in the world that is full of insanity. lol

I'm on the internet a lot anyway, but it is VERY distracting! I have decided to treat MyLot as my personal "coffee break", so that I have definite times when I can post without feeling guilty about being here.

Wow! What a great boss you have! A long time ago I had a job which involved a lot of sitting around waiting for the phone. I wish MyLot had been around then.

Hi there! Mylot is a social site thats definitely addictive. Everyone has experienced it and everyone can tell its true. Even I have found myself being drawn to this site more and more everyday and though I have work and other responsibilities to do that are more important than mylot I still make sure to log in even just a peek just to check whats going on. We sometimes feel that mylot has taken over our lives. But I believe mylot is not making us irresponsible but rather teaching us to be MORE responsible. It teaches us how to manage things the proper way especially if you have more than one responsibility to do in a day. I think we are thought here how to prioritize things and still have time to have fun in the net. Our earnings here are just based on how often we participate. How much you earn is up to you. How much you would enjoy this site is also up to you. Thats why mylotting is not considered a "get rich fast" thing so that we won't feel that this is an obligation or a job to do. Just keep enjoying mylot as a past time. It would make you much happier! Ciao!

I like that you don't make a lot here. I personally am here for the adult converstaion more then the money. The money is a perk to a great site!

well, it really depends on you... mylot does not affect my daily routines and works as far as i am concerned because i try to manage my time properly... and i try to be discipline as well... so as much as i am addicted to mylot, it does not ruin my daily routines... take care and have a nice day...

OMG, This is so true!I find myself doing exactly the same thing. First, I was just staying up till all hours of the night. Now I'm getting up really early in the morning turning on the computer, visiting mylot for a few hours and then going back to sleep. I have to go out and do some things and when I get back home finish some chores and make dinner and back to mylot. Yes, I am neglecting everything and everyone! I barely have time for anything that I'm supposed to be doing. Mylot is making me irresponsible! I don't know what to do! I just love being here so much that I can't stay away. I knew I had an addictive personality, but I never thought I'd be addicted to a site too! Oh no, what should we do!!!

Mylot can be very addicting. However, you have to keep your priorities in line. There is not reason to ignore other obligations for mylot. The beauty of this site is that you can log on and respond to a few discussions when you have the time. Mylot isn't a full time job- it's a hobby you happen to get paid for. I'm sure if you just force yourself to get out of your routine you'll find that mylot is only one small part of your day.

I think I'm a little addicted to mylot. It's so new to me. And i can meet friends here. They are very nice and helpful whenever i have any questions. One more thing I enjoy mylotting is that I can practise my writing in English which is not my native tongue. I only knew that one has to write for homework and mylot pays you to write anything!

i dont think my lot is making us iresponsible at all. maybe sometimes, we choose to be irresponible, we can't blame mylot if sometimes we opt not to work.hehehe i think we should try to focus on our priorities. i sad we, because i right now i am in the office, where i am supposed to be working, but instead am, here, responding to the discussion which i'm not supposed to be doing at this time..hahaha but i chose to be here anyway!:) i enjoy it so much here, i get to express what's in my mind., i just love the discussions.

I like Mylot and find it is a pleasant, productive kind of addiction. I am thankful for being addicted to it and it has given me some structure to my daily routines. Even if I am tired I still go and do my mylotting stuff. Cheers!!

Mylot is pretty addictive. What I have tried to do this summer, since I don't have to work is get Mylot and my work together. I will post a response and then clean the house for 5 minutes and then post another and clean. My house will be really clean by the end of the day and I got a chance to make a number of posts! During the school year I will commonly get up at 4:30 and post as much as I can before anyone else gets up. You just have to learn to 'control' you addiction and make it work for you! :-)

I agree this site is addicting! I am online at work! It feels like eavesdropping on a lot of conversation, the good thing is you can even put a comment. I am enjoying myLot alot. We just have to do more important things first like reports and after that back to myLot!

Don't I know it! I'll get on first thing in the morning, post some stuff and not be able to wait until I'm back from work. I'll get on during lunch and find that I've spent a bit too much time here - again...
