And what was the first site that paid you? Well, as for myself, I just wanted to know if there's such thing as making money online. I like socializing, I found mylot and enjoy it a lot. It's all started from curiousity. The first site that paid me was mylot. And from here I gain more information on making money online. Mylot is like a stepping stone to me. Currently I have many spare time and I think it's a good idea to monetize my free time. Now I'm getting more serious with my online money making. How about you? What's your story behind making money online?

Actually i don't have any reason for doing online money making job. But my reason is just like other's reason which is trying to make some extra cash or extra income. Currently i also have my own real job, so doing online money earning is just an extra income for me. I only do it when i have time or in a holiday. But of course i can find more than just extra income from my online earning jobs. For instance here in mylot, i can make new friends, i can helping other people by giving my opinions and my thoughts about their problems which i think i can also do it on my real life, but the unique here is i got paid for each effort of it. Although the revenue is not really a high amount of money, but there's some satisfaction and happiness i can get from this effort. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

That's what I'm talking about. Doing a positive activity in our spare time is a good idea, I think. Especially if you love doing what you do. It can be therapeutic because doing your hobbies may relieve the stress. Not to mention the money lol.

I started making money online 9 years ago when I was working for 800 predict and they merged with a dot com which is keen.com I am a 5 star rater clairvoyant tarot card reader. I wanted to work from home because I wanted to have control over the amount of time that I work, the money I can make, the way I wanted to dress, and be my own boss. Besides doing reading I also have multiple online stores, I'm building my photography portfolio, I have a degree in art that I need to be using more, and I'm doing some writing. There are all kinds of different ways to make money online and I am having fun doing it.

It's mylot being the first I received money online. The truth is that I'm not active in the first I've been register here. But after seven months of inactivity I come to think that why I should not try to log in again? I made a decision to be an active member here until I got some. Now, I am an active member here...

like you, the first site that gave me money is mylot and i am still doing it! because of mylot, i have learned how to blog and earn from it. i also learned how to monetize my facebook and twitter accounts. This is not my profession but getting a few pennies from doing this on the side is a welcome note.

Wow! Monetizing facebook or twitter account is a good idea! I am still making a few pennies online, but that's the point. It's about doing positive thing in my spare time.

My reason for trying this online earning is simply to have fun and do something in my spare time. Playing computer games has become a boring thing, so now I try to earn anything if I can in my spare time.Further, I have got an unlimited internet plan, so the more I use, the better it is for me.So what's the harm in try to earn some extra (even if it is as little as a buck).

I agree with your last sentence! It's not about how much we earn, because the earning itself is free money.

Well, i'm a very competitive person, and making money online posed a challenge to me. I can't nooot accepted a challenge. The other thing that really appealed to me is all the potential residual I could be making, and the fact that. The earnings online can literally be endless where as a real job you tend to have a set wage. What also really appealed to me is kind of working for myself, and my own hours. It's sooo much better then working under someone. Those are just some of the manyyyy reasons why I decided to make money online. I always had it in mind that working online would be amazing, annnd I ended up starting to do research into it and ended up on Mylot which ended up being a FANTASTIC find. I got so much helpful information from here it's not even funny. Now i'm like the people that helped me at first by helping them to make money online, It's a money-making cycle! The real question in my mind is, what makes anyone decide NOT to make money online? I mean. No boss. Set your own hours. Unlimited profit potential. Those all sound like A+'s to me. Although some people just like the everyday 9-5 schedule, I absolutely despise it. That about sums up that,

Hmm..now I'm questioning about that too. I guess some people aren't familiar with online money making, and the rest are either the ignorants or the impatients lol. Working for your self is a great idea, no boss, you can take vacation whenever you want to and there's nothing sweeter than residual income! Lol.

I suppose now that I think about it the reason why most people don't want to make a living online is because there is no for-sure guarantee of stability(As in, more then not you won't necessarily be making a per hour rate, and on top of that the fact that whatever you're doing is a lot less likely to exist in the future as opposed to off the internet in a real job.), and on top of that. You have to pay for your own benefits being that you're self-employed. It's also risky financially in some cases.

Thanks for issuing the discussion here. Mylot is the first site that I knew I can earn money from the website. I am very happy when I am able to cash out the money from mylot. Mylot is just the first window that connect me to other earning website. Now one of my friends is going to introduct another website that can earn from the commission for the items sold, but I need to pass the test online prior to taking the task. I am now studying to it and hope that someday I can promote that website soon.

I hope you will past the test and start earning soon, sasalove. Best wishes!

As of now I don't have a job, and it's getting increasingly difficult for me here. So, I have decided that I explore a bit and look to earn something from the net. But nothing much is happening yet. I would want to sooner or later increase my earnings somehow. I just managed to earn some prize cash of 25$ by participating in an online Q&A. But yea, I would like to blog more and post more articles also, if at all my articles would ever be accepted. Ha ha...! I am trying hard, but I can slow things opening up slowly. Main reason, to make money online, I am jobless and I hate 8 hour jobs.

I too like writing articles, eventhough I'm still a beginner. I have 20 articles on Triond and they keep on earning everyday and I want to do it more seriously. Good luck!

I wanted to STOP making money for someone else and START MAKING MONEY 4 ME & MY FAMILY! And it gives me more time to be with my children.

That's one of the advantages in making money online. You aren't forced to do anything. If you want to earn more, you just have to work harder, as simple as that. Not to mention that you can be with your kids all the time ;) hope you'll be successful!

I wasn't really thinking about making money on-line when I first got on to the Internet. I was just interested in what the Internet was actually like and then a friend said he was making money, so I thought I'd give it a shot too. I think the first site to ever pay me was EmailPaysU a long time ago. It wasn't a great amount but I liked the feeling. It was, and still is like a game and I don't think it will ever produce great riches, but it is certainly fun to watch the cents turning into dollars.. I like to socialize too, and I find that myLot in particular is one of the better sites because it loads relatively quickly and is simple and straightforward to us. - Derek

My joining mylot is accidental more than 3 years ago. Initially I never thought that one can earn online as I am quite new to internet then. All I care was searching for something that interest me like recipes and health info from the net. When I bumped into mylot, something I read in one of the discussion triggered me to sign up and was pleasantly surprised that I got paid for posting and responding. In fact from mylot I learned how to open paypal and lead me to bigger surprises when I got my first payout for something that I least expect would derive some income with no investment. This spur me to venture to other areas in online earnings. The rest is history and I am glad mylot has opened up my eyes to uncover the goldmine in online opportunities.

Hello, zandi! Your experience is quite similar with mine. I learn everything about making money online from this site. I'm glad I found it.

I think the first site that paid me was a website that i wrote an article for. that was very exciting. I think of it like a game, and I try to make as much money as possible. It tends to all be in little bits, but every bit helps.

That's really cool! My second payment is also from article writing website as well. It was such an amazing feeling, because I'm still a beginner in writing, but still I can make money out of it. :)

Some of my reasons for trying to make money online are not having a decent job to provide enough funds for me to live my life. I try and make money online because to hope to better my own personal situation and hopefully get some funds put away for future ideas.

Trying to make money online is a good thing to do while searching for a day job. It's nice when you keep yourself occupied. Wish you the best of luck and hope that you'll earn more in the future.

My choice to start seeking online money making opportunities was because in our country it is very hard to get job with reward which can cover all bills. I seeking these opportunities almost year, but meanwhile I haven't get money from online, but I hope that this situation will change. :)
