The sad truth about making money online , I am here seeing some old responds and discussion on MyLot . I was reading some stuff and I would see a person with 700 respond and then I look at their profile and I see their last log in was two years ago and it just make me sad to see they come so far and maybe leave with out ever getting one cash out . This kinda thing happen every day , people will feel they can make some money online , then maybe its too little to ever reach in their lifetime , the site vanish are they cannot log in anymore . I always try to get pay for whatever I start I wont quit once I start but I wonder how would you feel if you put in so much work and never get pay ? I know some people have referral but its hard trying to make it anywhere online without referrals . I know we all join for different reason but I wont lie money was my motivation for joining , I did not come here by accident .

You're right. I also found mylot some years ago because of an research through internet how to make money online. That was the first and main reason I registered. Nowadays, I have more reasons than that to love mylot (you can find friends, practice your english if it's not your mother tongue, you can have interesting conversations and learn a lot from them and other people....), but we still are looking for an additional income. So it's very important to continue, even if it seems to be difficult and a neverending story. There are plenty of possibilities to make money in internet and even more people who wish to do so. But it is still very difficult to built up an identity to get a work online. Even beeing internet already a part of our live today, to get a great "work online" still seems to be a big "TOPIC" for most of us. It's something we have to learn, to produce ideas, to envelope...maybe in some years situation will change and it will be something normal and easy to get jobs like that.

Me too. Actually..., the main reason why I joined mylot is to earn cash. It happened to me before but in other site. It's just they have a very big cashout amount and that got me tired and frustrated so I just suddenly find myself not checking it anymore. All efforts got wasted!

It's not impossible to earn big money at myLot but you have to spend almost all your time on this site to do that. There was one person I met on another forum who claimed that she made $300 in a month on myLot but she said that happened just one time because she became bed-ridden and she spent all her time on myLot while recuperating. So she had nothing else to do except spending time on myLot. And that was how she made $300 in a month.

Well I'm new to mylot and I just joined to see if I can earn some extra cash. I have joined a lot of sites that does not have big cashout but you have to work hard to earn the little bit of cash. I hope this site works for me......Today is my first day! :-)

I am enjoying myself being in mylot, i made friends from other country, i got to practise my english, i'm going 3 yrs here in mylot but i haven't cash out yet, because i am not really active here sometimes i'll go active for some days and after that for months i am notactive... I am as well interested in gaining money here in mylot, but if i stress it out that i need to cash out here, then i'll get bored and my comments would have been not so quality... But i also wanted to have an online job but i am afraid on scams... Still i am looking for online jobs that is really pay for the effort, one that fits my ability and one that is legit..i love mylot but mylot is not a job for me, but it is good to know that i am paid for my post...

I see what your saying , you rather quality over quantity . It nice to see your faithful to the mylot community , I want to also be here for years . I also cannot find any online job to substitute a full time job or even a part-time job . Yes its nice to know that even the little time you get to spend here you earn something .

I have considered leaving myLot previously after I cashed out but then I'm still here. There are other things about myLot that keeps me coming back. I think one of the thing is that it's so easy to participate.

Well maybe that person had cash out but not return , was it not worth it ?? because I am sure people here reach near cash out and never continue . Not all of us here will cash out that is the truth.

Yes we do not make money online very fast if at all. People either quit because it's too much effort for little or things in the real world have taken up more of their time. In all honesty we all came here for the money but stay for the awsome people we've met from around the world. Plus if you have nothing else going on at the time why not mylot?

Yes we cannot make a lot of money , but the good thing about MyLot you kinda make what you earn . Well Im active internet personal lol join almost all social site and make comment each day so I dont mind getting pay fro what I would normally do .

One just have to stay and be active. Leaving a site just like that will make you lose whatever it was you had started. Also, some members die, so that could be one reason why we do not see them around anymore.

Thats is also true , members leave for different reason.

Im not sure if i will get paig here or not but the same thing may be said about ANY of sites where u registere on hoping to make some money.To have at least stable income u should get on 10-20 sites that give you free bonuses,sites with capcha etc.The more sources of small income u have,the more chances it will grow

I think thats th ekey you have to join more than one thing to make cash online , I am not looking for a income because I think that would be all my day and I have school and part-time work , but something about online work that always seems to spike my interest . I wish there was away I could make a stable income wouldn't it be sweet .

Online money doesn't get you a lot, but it is worth it for me anyway, to work online, because I like making extra money to buy things I want.

Yes online money is not easy to get but at least MyLot is a legitimate way to make cash .

hi, i agree, money motivates us, to share our views make discussions and comments especially in mylot, yes, if a site doesnt pay us even after our hard work, we get disappointed , but usually i never leave a site without getting my payment, if i dont like the site anymore, then i leave after getting my payment.
• United States

Yes money is a big motivation for most , its nice to make money just sharing your views and comment its a nice way to earn . Thats good never leave without getting pay thats how I though .

I have the same motivation as you. But I am from the other country. So I have another motivation, though I can not earn much money, I can still write things to improve my English. I think it is good.

I joined myLot years ago. Yes, it was initially for the money, but I quickly learnt there were better and more productive ways for me to earn online, so I really don't spend that much time here. Maybe some of the people you've mentioned are like that - maybe they're off making better money elsewhere.

It seems I join years ago but I was just looking for a place like Facebook never care about cash . I totally forget here until Some one refer me here and I came here and try to register and I realize I was already a member I was surprise .

Yes I also came here because of the money and its part of my goal to cash out someday here so like you I want to stay here. But also I know I have a purpose here I want to meet new friends and learn from other people. In real world I have allot of friends but they are all the same and busy, but here in myLot I found new friends different people and it feels so good to know new people. I feel, I already travelling around the world and crossing to their each country. This is what I love to read and write, so love what you have. If ever you cant get the cash at least you don't have regrets.

Hello Silverfox09, Yes it's sad, but like you said is the sad truth. I think that 80% of the people like to see the money the fast as possible, they start making plans for the future, like earn $3000 per month or something like that, and when they realize that they will have to work hard, spend a lot of time and in the end the earnings could not be what they expected is very easy to just give up. If we see the people who are really earning some good money you will see that almost all of them are AT LEAST for 1 or 2 years working hard to get some money, maybe when someone enter to the "internet bussiness" they start seeing the "gurus" promissing $3000 per week and some other dreams and think that will be easy to earn money, but when they realize that wasn't what they expect and it will never be easy it always will be needed to work, time, effort, patience, the "give up" option stand up! In life nothing is easy and free. Happy Earnings! :)

I would never think to make $3000 a month from any online sites lol unless I am a successful YouTuber are new to the internet . I would be happy to make $200 online because I am a student just need some extra cash .

Silver, it is always important as to search for more details regarding the site that you are interested to join. It is to avoid disappointment in later time, where you work hard but unable to get the payment. In fact, i ever came across a few sites where i had reached the payout level but unable to get paid. It is because they turned scam site exactly when i had reached my payout level. I do felt very sad and disappointed but need to move on. Just keep on searching and i am sure you will be able to came across a few good paying sites in the near future.

Online working really requires patience. I had been victims of the scam sites but I never give up. I never considered quitting as an option. I know that with proper strategies applied, we will be able to gain success in this field.

Aries yes patient is important , I have also been member of scam sites and I never give up either . The sites I join I only invested my time never my money so it didnt hurt much .

Yup! It so sad to know that there are people here that after more time to spend was leaving without trying to cash out. It's really good that you have the ability to finished in what your starting about. Yup! We maybe earn a little here but this is depend on our activity and the length we stay here. If you have more activity I think it's more money to earn...

Yes its sad ,I have heard only good review about MyLot . Some sites that I've join after participating for 4 months to reach cash out they would vanish .

I think that's life. People come and go. People change their minds. We cannot stop it. There was a time I lost hope and gave up on Mylot too but I keep coming back. And then I made my first pay out and then that's the time I decided I will continue this.
