okay, why are you on myLot??? at first, i thought I'm just doing this for the mooney, as so everybody is... We post discussions, answer other people's query, write comments - - - all for the money... but money ain't that good, we all know that. a lot of poeple even say myLot is a waste of time. Yet, we're still here... is it because you're having fun here? or just desperate for the money? or maybe just bored???

Well I'm not gonna lie the money is one of the reasons I'm on mylot, but its (not) the only reason on mylot I actually do enjoy chatting discussing things and mylot has a lot of good information too, so I guess you could say I'm here for more then one reason and thats to learn new things and chat with new people and also to make some bucks, but I'm defintly not desperate for money but it dose help a little. And those who say mylot is a waste of time probably only feel that way becuse there not making a million dollars, free money is free money, and actually its not completely free becuse we are all providing a service to mylot by posting, so I think we should all keep that in mind, in fact our topics appear in web surfers search results especially when we tag them.

I don't waste my time with sites that are not at least fun. But the money is just an added perk. I'm over half way to my first payment from mylot. I've had fun getting here and I've learned a lot.

actually, i'm here as a new, by now ,i don't know how to earn the money from mylot, the only whys i came here is to make friends and discuss freedomly with each other!

you make earnings from myLot by answering discussions, postin topics, uploading photos, adding tags, completing tasks... the amount of activity you do on my lot adds traffic to their site and they pay u on how much traffic you bring

yeah ,i just noticed the paying on the first line at the page, it that can really exchange with truly money or only response the activity you done?

don't get too disappointed if you're new here and you only see a few centavos earnings in your money bar... however as you add more friends, and increase your activities through participation, your earnings may increase... if you have referrals or complete any of the tasks in the homepage it could earn you a few extra cents too...

Of course, I won't deny that I keep being active here for the money. But, its not always just about the money. I look forward to interesting discussions that other members of this site, some of them made by friends, started. We get to know more from other members and we get to exercise our creative as well as our critical thinking. Another benefit that I find here in this site is that I get to practice my typing skills. I believe that I have improved a lot due to constant participation here in this site. I think with that, there would be other reasons that other members could mention aside from the money.

If everyone was more into enjoying being active here than on focusing on increasing their posts or earning more, I believe that the content of the discussions and the interactions of the members would grow further (^_^ ) Your welcome~!

I originally came here thinking about money - and I will still keep up posting as much as I can for that reason, I was laid off in February so even if I can make it to $10 that will pay for something! But I am also finding it is fun and not hard to work because the discussions are interesting and I have met some good people already. And even though its such a tiny amount, it is weirdly addictive to watch your earnings creeping up. I have only been here 2 days, and today it went over $1 and I was unreasonably excited...lol.. For me it is also great writing practice - I have been wanting to get back to writing and this is making me write at least SOMETHING everyday.

hey there English... mostly you can earn up to $10 with minimal participation...but if you spend longer hours in the site you could earn up to triple of that amount in a month... I have calculated that coz there are days I get almost 2dollars earnings... if it's slow it's less than a dollar... it depends on your participation...someone ssaid he earned $3 in a day... so you see you could earn more than $10,it only depends on your participation... but truly, when i was new to the site and wasmaking only 30cents in a day it made me sooo excited and easily got hooked into the site

Out of all my money making sites, i do love this one the best, but it's not because of the payout....LOL This is the one i check first when i get online and it's the one that has taught me the most about life issues. I really do enjoy this site and am very happy that i found it. Great discussion by the way!

ohk, I don't want to answer this like I am appearing for a interview with the monotony of saying that "oh I just love my time here"......"mylot is my life"......'It helps me grow"......."it made me feel so good".....etc........somewhere to an extent yes it did.......but ill be honest I am here for money as well as to have some good time......if I get bored with something I leave it instantly......but then I have been having a good time here so I am still around..... But if mylot was "all fun no money" then I would not have probably joined mylot......and even if I did I would not have been so active......I like the concept of helping and discussing while being paid for it......atleast I get my pocket money for that month !!!!! I have made good amount of money from mylot, and also I must admit that I learnt a lot from here.....specially I love doing the writing tasks here......they really help you improve your language and you do feel good when your task gets approved and also being paid handsomely for that !!!! Nice topic buddy !!!!

i don't spend that much time in myLot John...I mean I log on everyday...for maybe 20 mminutes or less... but I kinda got used to being on myLot on a day-to-day basis as much as poossible.. it's nice here...and you are earning for posting your opinions.... i always thought money here ain't good...i only get a few cents a day... the most i got was 56cents in a day......... uhm,how much do you make in a month? have you made a lot of payouts already coz, i might consider being here for like hourse, hours, hours in d ay..lolz

Partially I'm doing this for the money but its not like its anything I can live off of. Its fun to know that my thoughts mean something and that I'm getting paid for something I do just for fun. So I guess that's why I'm on Mylot. If its not Mylot then it still would have been some other discussion site but for now, Mylot is the most fun and rewarding.

If I were in it for the money, I'd post more often than I do. I like getting paid for participating, but I'd like to think I'd continue doing it even if I wasn't getting paid.
