Taking a little extra time on this day when the USA takes time to be thankful, to give attention to this site. It is a very special site and for all the newbies it does take some time to learn how it works, but the people you meet and converse with are worth the effort and the money earned is just an added bonus. Welcome all hope you enjoy this and find helpful, caring people here to help when needed and share a little of your life with us. Blessings

Now this is a good discussion. MyLot is an awesome place to be part of. I think everyone here that is active feels the same way. I know I do. It does take some getting used to when you first start here, but you soon get into a groove and make friends. Long Live MyLot.

Inertia, I agree! Long live myLot! While I definitely agree it takes awhile to figure out the site, I will say that the benefits that you will reap from this site far outweigh the initial frustration that you sometimes feel. I think that is part of why there are so many inactive members. People get discouraged when they do not figure out how the site work. Then, they tend to leave. Some members like me decide to give it another try. Others never come back. Once you figure out this site you will fall in love with it, and you will never leave again.

I think that is one of the main reasons. I remember when I started I could not understand it and almost gave up on it. It was some months before I looked at it again. but when I actually took the time to understand I loved it ever since. Maybe it has something to do with the way the site looks. It is basic and plain in a way. I wonder of they updated the site to be or look more user friendly and possibly create a how to video for it. I think that would make people more comfortable. And they should brag about how long they have been online as well. Longevity is a great asset to be on any online sites resume.

Thanks for starting this discussion savypat! Thanks to myLot for keeping me busy during the day. This is such a wonderful site/community to read, participate in discussions, learn and earn at the same time. :) There are other similar earning sites but those sites just vanished while some are confusing. I just keep on being here and stop registering to others. I even abandoned my newly opened blog because you got to be visit by ither people there so often. And I admit that there are many good writers than me. I am a member for almost a year now but I still have lots to learn about the policies here. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Yes, from someone who has been a member here for a little over 6 yrs. I am quite Thankful for myLot and all my friends here I have made. It is definately more about the friendships and being able to respond back to everyone over what money I have made here.

I agree that earnings is just a bonus. Mylot is a good place to vent out, rant our feelings (without hurting others and avoid trouble with real life encounters) so it's better to express our feelings here. Mylot is a the best place to find comfort and sympathy in our down moments, blue days and during calamities. Can we ask for more?

Why do you think that we are EARNING in here in mylot. Mylot is unable to worth our time and effort. What mylot does is it gives us some REWARDS for what we are doing. Everywhere in mylot the word ''earning'' should be replaced with ''reward''. Thanks to mylot for it is giving us a chance to have a good pastime, to have all our hanging time, spare time enjoyable.

@ Kashidanga, You can call it reward if you want to....no one is forcing you to consider it as "earnings"

In regards to the question of teminology, if you look under our earnings it groups together the amounts that we get for participation, referrals, and rewards. Participation is the earnings that we get for being active in the forums. The referrals is the commission that we get from people that we referred to the site. Rewards are what we can earn for using the search bar. All of these things are grouped together to equal our total earnings from the site. People are correct to use the term earnings in the discussions. If we wanted to be more specific, we could say participation earnings for posting and responding on the site. Jailho, I totally agree with you myLot is the best place to share our feeling and vent our frustrations. The people here on the site are so understanding and helpful.

I agree with you, savypat. Although we don`t celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, I think that we would all live better if we took some time to count our blessings. I have read many times here about people who say they are very poor. Yet I know that the poor people don`t have access to internet, cannot read nor write and they are too hungry to try to do better. We are lucky. And we are more lucky to have this site where we can tell each other some of our problems and talk about our interests. I have learned a lot here. Thanks friends, thanks mylot.

marguicha, thank you for pointing out that even when we cannot see our blessings that we are blessed to be part of myLot. I like the way you put it that we have the opportunity to make a better life for ourselves and to be able to share with our friends here on myLot.

I have to actknowledge the help that I have had from mylotters, aireanna. Last year I was secluded for months during my chemo. I would have been bored and depressed if it hadn`t been for some wonderful friends here.

Yeah..I am also grateful to be a member of mylot as it has not only given me a chance to speak my mind out but has also created a wide range of friends around the world. Mylot has also been a savior to me during my insomniac nights like tonight when it is already pass 3am and am still unable to sleep. I am fortunate that mylot operates round the clock and know that my responses would be read right away by those who are having their dsy time.

zandi, sorry to hear you cannot sleep. I agree myLot is great for those nights that you cannot fall asleep. Hopefully you will find something soon to help you with the sleepless nights. I know that melatonin is supposed to help. Not sure if you have tried that in the past.

Hi aireanna I have not taken anything to induce sleep. I don't want to be dependent on medicines too much. Mylot has since been my faithful companion which is a good lullaby to knock me off towards the end at the wee hours of morning.

ShyBear, I know what you mean. I cannot wait to get my payment from myLot next month. I wish you luck in reaching the minimum $10 mark, We still have about 6 more days to go, so I am sure you can make your goal. It would be nice if I could hit the $15 mark or higher before the end of the month. It is possible. So, I just keep posting a little more too!

We'll I'm a mommy and I have no internet at my house. We moved about 6 weeks ago and hubby just has one part time job that pays about $8 and hour so we don't have much money at all right now. I have to come to my parents house to get on mylot which I don't get long to get one it and my phone can let me do some but it burns throw the data so I have to be careful with that. I'm almost at $9 so hopefully I can get to $10 before the end of the month. It's taken me almost 2 months to get to where I"m at right now. Normally it doesn't take me this long to make the money but with little ones they come first.

I'm thankful for all my friends at Mylot. That my cancer cells have shrunk. That my family got along for Thanksgiving. That Baby the cat is still healthy. That my hubbie is happy and healthy. That my home and car are both paid for. Stuff like that. Mylot is truly something to be thankful for. I wouldn't have met such nice people with things in common as I have here much of anywhere else. Love this discussion. I'm thankful for it, too.

I am thankful that I returned to myLot this year! I have met a lot of great people here. It is so nice talking with all my friends here online. I am thankful that I have myLot along with lots to divert my attention from a break up with the ex. I will be very grateful when I receive my first cash out from myLot in December. Already made the minimum, so I am just trying to add a little bit more to my balance here! Yes, the earnings are a bonus, but they are much needed.
