Simple enough... why did you guys all join mylot? Are you here for the money? For the community? For help with your discussions or to give advice? Are you here to make money? (No shame if you are, thats why I joined) And what will you spend the money on? I joined mylot because i wanted to make a little money to play for an online game. I like it a ton here, and the discussions are great, along with getting help with life and things, i can start a discussion and get tons of input! (Sometimes... =P) Now i think I'll use the money on ebay, since i don't have another pay pal thing, and this is a great way to help that. I also enjoy reading discussions and finding out a lot of things, such as what other people aree going through and trying to help them. So why did you all join mylot? What do you like most about it?

I came here for the money and I have no shame in it. I'm not working for the first time because my husband is in Iraq and I wanted to find a way to gather some emergency gas money just in case. People seem to have a lot of shame admitting that they were originally drawn here for the money. If they were financially set, they would be out somewhere having fun or doing something with their family. Hell, I'd be in the snow somewhere learning how to snowboard or in pre-med classes. :)

To make money without an iota of doubt. But its not that easy to earn money in mylot or anywhere else to that matter.Next comes the chance or the opportunity to meet people like you,interact and to know about things not known to me and let others know from whatever i know.Though the prime motive is money,other advantages will make us addicts to Mylot.

I joined to make money, but not since I'm here and I'm really getting into how this place works and I'm really starting to enjoy the discussions, I'm now here for both.

to be very true, initially i joined my lot for money, but as i am using it day by day, it am becoming addicted to it, i also felt that it is a great way to acquire knowledge, and moreover i think my writing skills are getting improved, i have some really good friends, so why not

I joined mylot to get ideas on what to write about. Also it appears to be a website where I can learn from the discussions. So far I have had a lot of fun reading and posting...

Well, I heard of mylot from my senior sir. He told me that it gives money for the posts you do. But when i joined it, then I realize that it is giving me a money for the posts, but its a secondary option to me. Its helping me in increasing my typing speed and even making my English comprehension strong. And it also providing many useful informations about internet and many more. And I hope its a valid reason for why I had joined mylot. Just preferably for knowledge and typing speed. Have a nice day.

I think that internet is a really source of knowledge, and Mylot is one of this sources. It is real knowledge from real people. I think here yu can learn from the experiences of others. To make money I think this is not a good choice. Regards

I must admit at first I came here for the money. I have stayed because of the people. It is a wonderful avenue to interact with people who seem to have the same interests, problems, questions and answers that I have. In other words it has become just plain fun.

I dunno what mylot was until I joineed it. I was orkuting until someone sent a link saying it was just the same as Orkut. With the hope of making more friends and online stuff, I joined My Lot, later to find out that you can also earn on this. Well I thought it was cool. If I do the same thing on Orkut, why shouldn't I do it here. So that's why I joined My Lot...

i joined myLot for the reason that i want to earn money to be used as my school allowance. i stopped working to study nursing almost a year ago and it's been tough. nursing is an expensive course and my parents are not rich. this is my second course actually. i feel that i will have a good future if i become a nurse someday..
