Hello friends, I am quite confused that why people give lame excuses, reasons to earn extra money. I have found many threads here where people say that they need to pay their heavy bills and they don't have even a job that's why they switched to online work and they all need to earn thousands of dollar in a month. Don't they know that it is not possible to earn 1000 dollar in a month through online activities like clicking ads or writing comments. Hope after this message of mine people will stop giving this type of statements. Guys what do you think about it. Share your views!

I think you are right, in some cases it is lame excuses, as you put it, and in some cases it's not. I just don't get why people feel like they need to justify themselves, we all want to make more money, you don't really need to give a reason, we are all in the same boat, more or less!

Maybe we can put it this way, we really belong to the same boat. We all need money for our own purposes, whether it be for paying bills or help out in the household expenses. But what is clear is we need a source of income to increase our buying capacity. Its not anymore important for whatever purposes we will use the money. So, if some people want to use it as lame excuse, then let it be. No offend to anyone but for me, I really need to earn money of whatever amount. It will help me a lot and I don't care about the reasons of other people. If it's not possible for me to earn $1000 or more then I will have to be contented with whatever the result of my hard works. But I've been hearing that many people also earning a lot so I will try my best to duplicate their effort.

Why on EARTH should i stop giving that excuse? what's in it for you. btw. It's not just an excuse, it's a reason why they prefer online. so that they don't have to go out there spending money on transport and food, leaving their kids behind or not spending much time with them. a lot would give up their job just to stay home and earn because most people don't want to be part of that crowd who goes to work eight hours a day and tolerating their rude boss as they feel drained when they work. People DON'T HAVE A CHOICE. and even if most applied for a job, there isn't enough jobs for them to be qualified as others are more qualified than them. my view is you have just officially insulted those people who try to make it online. sure, they will stop saying their reasons but that way they will stop being HONEST of themselves why they are online. isn't honest being bad enough, or would you rather have people pretending why they're here? because i wouldn't want that. Question is: why are you here? Some people do earn 1000 dollars a month.because of the blogs.

Don't being personal friend. I know people are earning even more with blogs. But is it necessary to giving their reasons every time. Well i did not try to insult anyone and if you feel so that i apologize for that. I just wanted to know your views about it.

I AM NOT YOU'RE FRIEND. if you have NOTHING good to say to online money makers, then keep it to yourself! if you don't understand the value of online money making then shove it. if you are focusing on the fake story tellers about earning 1000 dollars then focus on the fakers and scammers, don't generalize them. otherwise, you will have an army of online money makers going at you.

I don't think it is lame excuses because they may really need the money but they're naive to think they can make fast & big money online without much effort. They need to adjust their mindset and put in effort, just like working offline. With the right sites and help from huge downline, there'll be a day whereby one can enjoy good money income online.

I know people are going through a bad time but i was just trying to mention those who always try to take benefit of others bad situation. There are many people who just give excuses so that others can post in their threads.

Are you saying they are trying to attract more people posting comments in their "miserable" Mylot discussion so as to earn money from a hot discussion? Then yes I agree as I saw there're some of them repeatedly posting the same question over & over again while myloters keep flood in to give suggestions or trying to help. I surely hope myloters can be wiser in this case and not to fall onto such trick.

There is an aspect of the human heart this is desperation. When you are in a tight situation, sometimes you can grasp at things that don't work, just because you are desperate.

^ Has a lame excuse for making extra money. My unemployment is running out and no one is hiring for my field. All customer service jobs are misrepresented or targeted for a specific field like dentistry. I have been approached over and over again to sell insurance, go into collections (they provide training you know), sell Melaluca (disguising themselves as a make money at home scheme). I will find something that will work for me. There are people who have done it. The people you are referring to are reaching out for help. I can empathize.

Hi Vaibhavbansal, I'm with you I think on this one. Unless you invest money and even then it's sketchy...there is no way for the average person to sit home and earn enough cash on-line to pay their rent and bills. You would literally have to be on here 24/7 to earn any amount of substance and that's just not healthy. My advice to people needing cash is to get out there and push yourself. I know there aren't many jobs and it can be frustrating but you have to do it. I have made money doing the oddest jobs. When you are really desperate, you get creative. Thing is that if you are sitting in front of the computer for hours and hours each day earning pennies, there is no thinking or creativity going on.

First of all, why is it important for you to know the reason why people try to earn online? It's the same reason why you get a regular job - to earn money of course. I suppose that's why you are here too. If not, why are you in mylot which is a PAID-to-post site? Some people are comfortable baring their souls. I don't think you have the right to stop people from giving this "type of statements." This is a democratic site and you have no right to stop people from saying anything unless it is a violation of mylot rules. I don't like them either but I just ignore them. I say live and let live. Sorry, I don't tolerate dictatorships in any form. If you want to ban these types of statements, go make your own site.

I am currently an online working doing several projects and I have found that thousands of dollars can be made IF YOU PUT IN THE WORK AND KNOW WHERE TO GO. I've been scammed in the past and now am very cautious. I've checked out the sites I work on now and so far things are going smoothly. Honestly, I've not broken $700 a month yet but my work is considered to be part time. Full time work for me will be a different story. I don't think anything is impossible to achieve just really difficult.

I agree that in general your online activities will not replace your regular or day job, however you can earn $100's to $1000's a month in residual income, in good, solid supplemental income. Eventually with the right program(s) and work ethic, it is possible to work online only, but for the average "Joe," I think you're right. To me it makes a ton more sense to quit your job only if and after you replace your income, not before. Once you are consistently earning $1000's a month, then maybe?

Hi vaib I think that perhaps you might try to avoid making such generalized statements in the future. It may save you some embarrasment. I would tell you my story, about why I try to make some money on the internet, but you would probably think it was a lame excuse, or fake, or a lie, so I won't bother. I do think, however, that most people who write their "lame excuses" on making money are trying to spark a discussion to make money on mylot. The better the discussion, the more money you make...isn't that right? And, finally, I really don't think this "message" of yours will stop anyone from posting their "lame" stories.

As for the lame excuses, I don't think its lame at all. I have seen 4 people in my neighborhood lose there homes because there is no work at all. I know 7 others in our area that are about ready to lose there homes, because even Mcdonalds isn't hiring right now. Believe me the economy isn't getting better open your eyes. In fact they had a news special the other day that said the economy is getting worse rather then better in our area. They also stated that many people were giving up on looking for work, because there was no work. I have a neighbor, that has been looking for a job now for over a year, he is about ready to sell his home, and move in with his daughter, because there is NO work. He even went to Walmart and told them he would sweep the floors if he had to, but still no work. Now, if my husband lost his job right now, and he couldn't find any work at all, I would be out on the street. Why? Because my mortgage is $652 a month my Insurance check from my accident is $670 a month. How am I suppose to pay the rest of my bills?? Lights $200 a month, Water $50 a month, Phone $60 a month, food $600 a month. You tell me how to pay that???? That doesn't include anything else that may happen, or that we need like T. Paper to wipe our bums. Yeah, you try and make it with a family of 5 with that many bills on that income. I can't see you living on $18 a month.

People are too lazy to do jobs that would take them months to get the amount they want. I think people loves to have things in "short cut"

Being lame is not an excuse it is the sickness of our country.They are trying to get a job that are highly payable but what they don't understand online job is better even they earn little or earned more.What is the differences. It makes money after all.it still pays debits of your own home than being jobless. Online work is not bad small earning but they will make it big if you got determinations to get up.

their reasons are not lame they ate just telling what is going on in their life and telling you why they want to earn. People come online because not many people are being turned away from earning online like they are in offline jobs. If their reasons are so lame what's your excuse? I earn money online because I need to pay for college. I know my earning is not a lot but some is better than nothing.

i dont think that there is anything wrong with asking for advise on how to earn money.. even when its online.. alot of people who are financially unstable need some help with earning. imagine how you would feel if you were in the same place as those people. if you are not having the same problems with earning online then maybe you could help them out and suggest legit sites to earn on.

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, I think there are a lot of people become be a member of the sites for makingmoney.Soin my opinion, I think it will be OK for them to take part in the program to make money online now.In the buttom of their heart, I think , they just want to make more money online at home. Whether they have the ability to make that much. They must try their best. For me, it will be the same to me, too. Have a nice day!

In the US the economy is so bad that it is hard to find jobs. I have a college degree and because of the bad economy none of the elementary schools are hiring. I have applications all over the place and all I hear is that I am over qualified. My husband is only working parttime and we never know one week from the next if his boss is going to short change his paycheck. I am not looking to make an extra thousand bucks, I just want to make a couple of extra bucks to pay the Internet bill. I have a couple of articles that I am hoping to post online and hoping that people will find useful and read. I belong to a couple of web sites that pay a couple of dollars.
