Being on mylot

October 20, 2009 11:26am CST
Do you find it difficult to get on here everyday? I see lots of emails in my inbox but, some days I am so snowed under with other things to do that I physically cannot spend any time on here at all - in fact it is really frustrating sometimes as I want to be on here more often and yet find I simply don't have the time to! Do you sometimes find it a bit of a struggle to simply spend time on here?

I do not get on here every day as i do not have my own computer. If I did I would probably log on here each day. When I am at mym oms I am on hgere pretty frequently. I think it is a ton of fun to read these discussions and pos them.For the most part I do not get tired of being on here, but as with anything we all need a break from it so we do not wear it out.

I think if I did not have a full time job then yes I would be on here so much more!

I usually don't have trouble finding time to get on for a little while every day but I do struggle to have enough time to respond to as many discussions as I would like to. I would like to try and comment to anything that my friends have started and have time to maybe start a discussion of my own but most of time I do not have the extra time to spare to get to everybody on my list. I do enjoy responding to the discussions but I also read a lot of them before I find the ones that I can relate to. Reading the discussions and the responses can be very time consuming.

Thats what I find! I like to try and respond to my friends discussions but, also sometimes if the discussion doesn't really interest me in any way I find it hard to relate to and so read more to find something to respond to!

I am waiting for a job to go through, so I am most of the time on here. Also, I'll play video games... And spend time with my husband when he's not at work... But right now I have a lot of time to spend on here, I find that's the case most of the time... Though if I get this one job, which I am sure I will I just have to wait, I'll only be available nights and weekends to be on here.

I think that is the main thing....work is just taking up loads of my time and I don't have as much time to chill out and just go on the net like I used to!

Yea, I know what you mean. I once had this job that I was most of the time at, so when I got home I was too tired to do anything, and would sleep... though once I met my husband I was online a lot regardless of lack of sleep, just so I could talk to him.

I turn off my email notification so I don't get anything flooding my inbox I do respond to friends but I am rarely here so some friends probably don't get responded

When I kow I am going to be awy for more than a few days I turn off alerts as otherwise I would come home to a flooded inbox and I just could never catch up then!

Yeah! It is sometimes difficult to get here everyday. But, I am still in the honeymoon stage here in mylot where I feel I am quite addicted to responding to a lot of interesting discussions. But when I do get in here, I find time goes by quickly. I start out reading a few topics, responding to a few discussions, and then before I know it 2 hours have gone by. It is fun though!

That is so true - you log on thiking I will just read a couple etc and then before you know it time has passsed too quickly!

Personally I am sure there are many here who are more active some days than others. I know for me, one of my most Active days in here happens to be Saturday and one day I am lucky to ever post much in here is on Wednesday. I have Church Wednesday evenings and since I live a ways from my Church and work I spend more time closer to my church and then come home and usually try and post some late in the evening before going off to sleep. But personally since I am having a lot of Fun in here and have met so many wonderful people I do try and come in here as I have time, and hope for the Best then as well.

Definitely! Sometimes I can go for weeks without being on here and then have a good couple of busy days to make up for it! lol

Sometimes it can be very difficult when you are busy with other things. I love My Lot though and I try to log in everyday for an hour or two, late in the evening is the best time for me. At the weekends I tend to spend more time on My Lot, it's just a fantastic place to be with lots of lovely people too. I can picture myself still My Lotting away when I am all old and wrinkly!

Lol - I used to have lots more free time but, it just seems lately I don't! Hopefully I will get more spare time soon!

In a word: Yeah. I find it very hard to get started on this site every day. By my calculations, I'm way far off my projected activity level. I wanted to reach a set number within my first few weeks of being a member of MyLot. Don't know what happened though. I instead started to go outside more during my free time, and exercising. now that it's sub-winter, which is what I choose to call fall, because fall is really winter in disguise, I'm more inclined to stay in and exercise when the feeling comes about. I'm more likely to get up, stretch a little, then sit back down to do something on the computer now. I could waste time while being productive. I just need to work out the proper formula.

See I am the same - when I do get free time I think I must get back on mylot and be more active but, then I also think of other things I need to do that I have missed whilst working and they take priority so mylot kind of gets a bit way laid!

All the time, especially lately, since I have been battling a cold. I normally just "turn on" my friends and respond to them since life has been so busy.

I know the feeling of struggling to here too. I am very busy trying to get my household in order, getting food on the table, getting the money for the food... It's a shame how hard life can be for a single mom. But I try as much as possible to look what is happening here and to answer at least one discussion of my interest. I had some hard times, which kept me away for months, but now, having internet again you might see me more. Good luck with your search for time. :)

Hello friend... Actually you are doing fine...How can anyone just give up their daily life and come here...so when I have time I will only come.Because this is just a hobby for me more than a way of earning.... But I can be here more often because I stay online for many ours...as my work is connected to it..

No, I don't. I am very busy at work, but I still can find the time on mylot. I don't really care how much I can earn from mylot. Since from I joined mylot one month ago, it becomes a daily habit in my spare time that nothing can change it. Sometimes it just likes that you must take a coffee before you got started working so that the concentration can be put. If you find it hard to spend the time on the posting here, I think you have lost your interests already. I prefer to spend much time here. Do not consider posting as a tool of earning money. I think that will be a different story. Happy mylotting.

Hi frankiecesca! You are very right, though we wish to be here on mylot as many times as we can, however, sometimes it does not become feasible due to our other pre-occupations. We need to look after our other day-to-day affairs too and mylot could wait, if those tasks are more important than mylot. It is great fun working here and discussing issues with dear friends.

Yes, I feel the same -I can find a bit of time to spend but then I am reading awhile before I find something I can really comment on. Some days are better than others. But I go through phases too - some days I will do a whole load of posts and I will see my earnings leap up, and others I just don't feel like putting so much into it. I suppose thats normal!
