Hi everyone! I have never seen anything like this before, so I thought I would come check it out. I was looking for legitimate work-at-home jobs online when I stumbled upon this. The concept is absolutely wonderful for someone like me who likes to write and interact with people. It's a win-win situation for me. So tell me, folks...have you found that socializing is turning a decent profit or is this primarily another medium to meet new people from all over the world? I am looking forward to hearing your stories.

I have found it can be profitable for your spare time. In order to truly make a descent money you really need a few referrals. It does pay and it is pretty fun to discuss with people around the world and get paid. If you are knowledgable and/or opinionated this is a great site for you. It is legit. I have been paid. This is my best paying social site so far. I have gotten paid from yuwie and close to it on myviewin, it just seems to add up faster here.

That was informative and helpful. Thank you:) I am eventually going to check out the other sites you make mention of. As a single mother with six young girls, I am praying that I can shake the 9 to 5 so I can stay home with the girls. This obviously isn't the solution but it sure is fun.

you need several strong referrals or a complete downline I should say on yuwie to make decent money. It takes more time and work than my lot in my opinion. However, myviewin is relatively easy for me. If you are interested in either one feel free to view my blog and join my downline.

Hey caliphat! I'm pretty new here too! Joining to get some extra money and then interacting with other people is definitely a win-win situation for all of us who like to talk! I never found anything like this before. Every time I find websites like these, I always look the site up on the internet before actually signing up and this seems to be one of the only sites that will actually pay their members! ;) Anth

I think for me its more about being able to socialize. I don't get out much or meet many people since I stay at home and take care of my daughter, so its a nice outlet to talk to people. Yeah, getting money for it is a bonus, but it isn't the number one thing for me.

Awwww! I'm sorry you don't get out much but it's good that you get to stay home with the offspring. There are some of us who'd like to be able to do that :) Maybe you can start a mommy co-op in your city so that people can take turns babysitting while you get a break.

Hi there and welcome.. If you post a lot and be active then you can earn a good amount I think :D But it is also a good place to talk about things and find answers to your questions... Have a good day and happy posting ^^

Hi and thank you! I have looked at a few of the threads and I am definitely seeing some interesting conversations. Honestly, I thought I would only get a reply or two. You sure proved me wrong lol

As far as making money goes, if you're pretty active you can make $10 a month, but not much more than that. It's better than nothing though, and it is lots of fun! Welcome!

Hi and welcome to MyLot. I am fairly new as well. I started - wow - I am not sure - let's just say a few weeks ago. Anyway, when I signed on to MyLot I had no idea about the money. I signed up just to "discuss" things and socialize a bit. I never have really contributed to an online community before. When I stumbled onto MyLot I found it exceptionally interesting due to the variety of subjects. I enjoy learning how other people feel and think about subjects...and I REALLY enjoy helping others if I can. I like being able to contribute a little here and there. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. I apologize I could not really be of much assistance about the earning but there are much more experienced MyLot(ters) here that will be much more help than I could ever be. Take care and hopefully I will bump into you again soon! :-)

Ei! Hi! I've read your post. Like you, Am also new to this site. I was introduced by a co-worker, refer rather. And she got some amount too for referring me to this site. It's really cool because aside of meeting new people, you'll also get to earn as well. I was really amazed when I saw the number of users in this site. Am sure, those who have been constantly starting some conversations and had been responding a lot has earned some good amount. Nice to think though. I really find this a nice outlet to while away time coz your not just wasting anything. Am also hoping to meet more people here and to get to here their views and opinions. It pays to read what other people think and say.

Welcome caliphat. They always say mylot is addicting. I have been in and out of mylot . When I am busy I am not able to log in for days or weeks. But if I get a chance I always find time to visit mylot and post some discussions and say hello to friends. Now I no longer have time to start a discussion as I used to before. So what I do now is answer some discussions.Some members have been earning here. You will earn if you have the patience of posting and of course active referrals really will help. My referrals are not active so I don't really earn from them. Happy surfing.

Welcome to mylot. Here you can earn something from your primary interest, which is socializing with people over internet. As you might already be knowing, Mylot pays $0.01 to $0.05 per post depending upon the length and quality of the post. Mylot also consider your activity level at mylot. However, let me make it clear that you can't become a millionaire at Mylot or can't quit your day job. But you can earn some small bucks to make you happy.

You can't make much money out of this. Maximum of $10 a month. Thats all. But the fun that you can have here is unlimited. Joining so many active referrals you will be able to earn more I guess. But I have not tried that. I just wanted to enjoy here rather than making money. Happy mylotting. Have fun.

I would say it is a good medium if you want to meet people, see people's perspective to life, exchange views, express yourself and share things. As a money making thing, it's not great shakes unless you are in a big way into building tons of referrers who are actively participating and building their own referrers. wish you a pleasant time on here. Look for enrichment and you just may find it...look for getting rich and you just may be disappointed.

There is not a work from home opportunity here but there is definatly a regular source of income available. Aswell as paying per post or reply there is alot of useful information on this website about alsorts of things great or small. You get paid for quality and quantity of discussions. You should not bother to reply to discussions that are only a line or so long because you dont get paid for them and it is a good idea to leave tags and ratings for each discussion, alot of people seem to think this helps. Always comment or resolve discussions that you start and mark a best response. i think that is all you have to know and that this isn't an opportunity to make an income but a monthly payment is quite achieveable.

Hi there. Today is actually my 1st day on Mylot as well. I searched for 'jobs for pregnant women' or something like that just to see what would come up. I don't expect to make much money from here. I was using YA!, and this one seems to be a little better. People don't just post answers without thought, (or I haven't seen it yet anyway) and it seems you like you get genuine answers if you ask a genuine question. So far I like the site, so I guess I'll just see what happens.

I have nothing much to add but would like to welcome you. I hate joining a forum/community and not getting a warm welcome. So, Happy mylotting! One more thing, since I'm new here (only been here for 3 days now) I can only say this site is cool and highly addictive!!! I have only made 49 cents but hey, it's fun participating in a community like this. I would like to be your friend :) add me.

I love it here although it hurts my eyes if I stay too long, but the discussions can be fun and the friends I make pretty much are great discussion starter and advice giver as well I love sharing news and light hearted discussions here, I had my shares of ups and downs with mylotters but I stay because the fun makes up for it and the money is good to help me pay ebay fees when I need to get rid of junks in the house hehe
