How many posts does it usually take you to reach payout?

It has taken me an average of 250 posts in mylot to reach payout. I'm approaching 1000 posts soon and I'm also close to payout for the month of February. I had gotten a bit distracted, and I realize I need to finish out this month with a bang, just like last month. In January, I reached the minimum payout in 21 days. This month it will probably by in 25 days, as long as it's reached before the last day, that's what's important right? Do you look at how many posts it takes you to reach payout each month with mylot? Do you even care, or are you just enjoying the experience? I enjoy the experience, but I also enjoy the challenge that comes with reaching the monthly payout.

vicky30, I'm glad you stopped by long enough to respond, and show your interest in this discussion. Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it. I was able to reach the payout last month by the 22nd of the month. This month will probably end up being the 23 to 25. But you knows, I may just tear it up for before the end of today. I've had days where I may $1.66 before. I only need $1.33 now. I set my goals for the 20th of the month. I haven't reached it yet, so with I do, I'm going to move it up to the 15th of the month. I'll keep stretching myself in that manner to see how far I can take my writings. I'll really be satisfied with 10 days into each month, that will give me a whole month to relax a bit and put some focus on my other activities.

Reaching payout in the twentieth of the month is a very big challenge.I keep my target for the thirtieth of the month.But i reach it without any problem.

You should share some tips of how you accomplish this as well as how long does it take you. The 13th of each month is a awesome goal. I will be over the hump this time tomorrow. I'm going to have to do a lot better in March. I'm really goal oriented and enjoy pushing myself to beyond the limits.

I really don't know, I don't count them, and I don't calculate because I am not always on here every day. briefly to make payout you need around 33 cents a day, give or take depending on how mylot is paying at that time and that fluctuates as well.

I calculated it at $0.40 per day, just to cover those fluctuations. So glad that someone else figured it out though. I'm sure there are more people on mylot that have calculated this though. I just figure that if that's all it's going to take, why not do it quicker and get it done earlier in the month. But everyone has their own routines that they need to follow.

It took me about 150 posts and some 40 + discussions to reach the payout. That was too lengthy a process and took a lot of time actually. May be because I was not posting more than 5 posts a day. I now want to speed up the process to get paid soon.

No bad, just have to find an area that you know a lot of folks are into talking about, and you have to have some type of knowledge about the subject or at least some sort of experience.

its funny that i been mylotting for more than a year now and i havent reach my first payout yet hehe. bad thing is because i do mylotting in a month and be absent for 3 months or more. the good thing is, i always go back mylotting :-) i just enjoy reading responses and posts. there are times that i login just to read and not reply neither post at all.

That's a unusally stalking type habit you have there. Better get some professional help. Just joking.

Okay, right now I'm literally chasing after payout, since I haven't been able to go online and have a serious sesh with my laptop. Campus has been annoying my butt like heck. I want to earn money online, too, but right now it's a tall order for me to do. I want, I want, I want to make that ten-dollar payout. It frustrates me quite a lot. I know it's wrong to be greedy about money like this, but I want to make some money for myself, too. I'm not allowed to work yet [I still have school], so I guess this is the next best thing to that.

First yes, you do need to take it easy on yourself and don't worry about money of all things to worry about. Secondly, you could try the library, the ones where I live allow users between 30 minutes to an hour of use per session, per day. And depending on the time of day that you use the computer then you may be able to stay on their a little longer.

It is better when you DO have the time to spend and spare to doing whatever you're doing.

It depends. Now that I haven't posted many images, I needed more than 300 posts to reach the payout. I'm actually just few cents short of payout. posting of images is one of the best ways to reach the payout fast.

I would say about between 200 and 300. Sometimes I get lazy or slack on a few posts hence the fluctuation! I don't care too much, though. I'm here for the experience.

I'm glad you are here right now, responding to my discussion that is. I know what you mean about getting lazy or slack. I get that way, once I reach around 6-7 dollars which is usually around the 20th of the month.

Well I usually try my best to give quality and full responses. I'm a very detail guy, so I like to share all the details, in my discussions. I try not to share too much in my topic as sometimes it doesn't leave room enough for me to respond with a good post in return. Thanks for the congrats, I appreciate it. I won't reach pay out today though, because I haven't gotten up to $9 yet, maybe around 1015 posts, who knows. It is still going to be less than 280 posts though.

To be honest with you 1. because I dont keep track, 2. because I havent reached payout yet. Somedays when I feel i will earn alot i am surprised to learn i didnt. And sometimes when i feel like i wont earn alot I do. It's strange and I cant really figure it out. However I am at 1and something beside my name..I cant remember what the something is....anyways and I have 7.09 in my account. I am not sure if this is good or not...but I am happy with it. i usally come here to have some good conversations with other people. I learn alot and find it interesting to hear other peoples ideas and opinions. I am also able to get help when i need it with things....so earning is only a small part of the reason I come here.

You're doing great to have that amount in your account with only 189 posts. Good job, that means you doing something right. Keep up the good work and welcome to mylot.

I have more than a 1000 number beside my name and I'm still working for my second payout. I know we need to post atleast 4 to 5 lines to earn here but sometimes I can't even reach 3 lines in some of my responses. It really depends of my time and my knowledge about the topic for me to post at least 5 or more lines. How many payouts have you been made now? I made a little computations because you said you can reach payouts with an average of 250 post. Now your approaching to your 1000 does it means your now working for your 4th payout?Now I am in my 1000+ posts and can only reach my second payout that means I need to post 500+ before I can reach payout. I'm a slow earner here. I hope I can make improvements and can make payouts in less than atleast 400 post. This is my first lenghty post I hope I can make another post as long as this one. Nice sharing with you. Happy posting..

Yep, I'm working on my fourth payout. My first was just over $15. My second payment was just over $11. My third payment was just over $13. I imagine my 4th payment will be just over $12.

It'll be 1,000 or more.. around 1,200 could be the better average. It also depends on the way you post. If you can post atleast 4-5 lines in every discussion you reply, you'll probably reach it past but I still think that you will need to surpass the 1,000 post before you can cashout. Aside from that, you still need to start some discussions and make sure that it is interesting so there will be lots of replies. You'll reach payout faster then..

I usually post 7-8 lines when I'm responding to a discussion. Otherwise it all depends on the topic if I consider myself real knowledgeable or experienced then my responses to those that respond to my topics for discussion can end up to be 4-5 lines, but usually 1-3 lined responses. All in all it usually takes me around 250 posts that a combination of starting discussions and replying to them before I do reach the minimum payout.
