Ok, it's official yesterday I had my lowest earning day since I joined myLot - Ok no fault of myLot, I couldn't get online our phone lines were out and I have dial-up connection. I did earn $.08. What was the reason you had your lowest earnings?

Mine was the other day. Made nothing. I only made one post. It was my daughters 16th birthday party. Yesterday was my best!

Way to go - making up for lost time were you? I've kinda been doing the same today.

I wasn't really trying to make up for it. It just kinda happened. Need to change this though my best day is now yesterday.

I haven't been paid by myLot. So, I can't tell it now. I just joined about a month ago but I'll look forward to getting my money. It must be a happy moment. Do you feel joyful when getting money from myLot for the first time?

My lowest earnings days are usually on Sundays and Mondays. Those are my husband's usual days off from work so I usually don't sign online for long those days. I have also had some other low earning days to which was my fault in a way. those days I kept looking through discussions but it was hard for me to find something to reply or relate to. I spent alot of time looking for something to respond to instead of actually getting to post something to them.

LOL that's what I was thinking - I did do 3 or 4 responses before the phone went out but the rest was as you said, the easiest money I've ever made. I love mylot :)

My lowest earnings were 1c. I had gone away for a day and didn't get on the computer for the whole time. I am surprised I earned anything at all, I guess the 1c must have been a glitch in the system.

No, not a glitch you may have still had people responding to older discussions, my understanding is you get credit of some sort for so many responses - sure they did this to reward people who post quality discussions and not the junk discussions that no one responds to.

The other day, I earned NOTHING. I also didn't post to earn, so that's why. I did earn a penny too a few days ago. I have been slacking off here. I have been redoing the house, so that is taking up my days. :)

Ummm house oh yea I am supposed to do that :( What did I do with a day of no Internet - worked on a new e-book to help promote myLot and got frustrated because there was a screen shot I wanted and couldn't get it.

I can't remember exactly but my lowest earnings may be 11c or something.. Lately I'm busy with other things and don't spend as much time at mylot as I did before, also I skipped a few days and I found I still get something.. I noticed that the earnings is calculated a few hours earlier than the time it gets updated, so even if you don't login for a day you may still have some of the last day's earnings not credited yet and it gets added to your account. Oh, and also I have one active referral, i can count on a few cents every day even if I don't login at all :)

My earnings rate seems to be tumbling also. I don't know why. I have has days of earning about 20 cents or less. I am finding it difficult to get over $1.00 a day.

My lowest earning day: $.03. The reason I earned so little that day is that I came online in the morning while getting ready for work, replied to one discussion, and then had to hurry off to work. I came home, took medicine, and went to bed because I was ill. There have been other days I've made very little. Usually it's because my main mylot time is after I get home from work, and if something comes up during that time, I'm just not on long. I pretty much only talk when my husband is sleeping or at work and my baby is busy with something other than spending time with Mommy.

Haha, that's quite true. Between a full time job, a baby, an active spiritual life, health problems, and a marriage, I'm a pretty busy woman. However, my mylot time is part of my "me time", it's a place where I relax and hang out. Everyone needs "me time" or they just aren't as good at everything else, because they're too stressed out to be any use to anyone.

I agree, "me time" is very important. I just often forget that - thank you for the reminder, I think I'm going to do that myself, maybe tomorrow.

I have a lovely week long streak of $0.00 ... I wasn't able to get online due to having a problem with my phone line that just took them ages to fix!! I was hoping that my referrals could have made me some cash then ... but no *sighs* I found I was having mylot withdrawls for the conversations though - not about the money issue

wow - you have referrals? I still don't have any myself but hoping that will change in the near future. I'm just having fun here now. LOL - all day yesterday I kept wondering "what am I missing", "what's going on", "wonder what great discussions I'm behind on".

i managed to scab myself 31 referrals ... but they are all pretty much non-active. I shouldn't complain - i've made like $2.50 off them which is better than nothing but if you really want the referrals to work you need to have someone who is active constantly ... just one person like this would be fantastic for everyone!!

There are many days I just don't get a chance to get on much at all. In fact lately I haven't really been posting or replying much, SO I haven't really made much money lately. about 30 cents a day, but then I"m only on for 20 minutes or so.. *sigh* (:

I also have dial-up and my phone was out for a couple of days so I got 0 on those days. One day I answered my discussions and checked a lot of the responses I made to see if they got comments. I only made 1 cent that day but did catch up with a lot that I was behind on. Now I will go to no responses if I have done this so I will get more faster as I am bad to spend hours reading all the responses on some of the discussions, and I like to help others out as well.

I like doing the "no responses" easier to think what to say because others haven't said everything already. I also like to do my friends' new discussions as soon as I can for the same reason.

My lowest earnings come weekly, usually on Saturday or Sunday when I am busy spending time with my family, at which time I barely get on myLot to post or respond to discussions. I enjoy the time with my children and when I come back to myLot I always have people wanting to be on my friend's list and messages from my friends, so nice to be wanted.

I think a lot of people do that - weekends off doing other things. I've noticed in my month here that there are not as many "good" discussions on the weekends and not as many responses. I keep saying I'm going to do the same thing but I end up popping in to see what's going on and manage to find something to do.

Welcome to mylot, it's a great place and hope you enjoy it here. The actually pay is somewhat a mystery, yes you get 1 cent for pictures you upload and a point for each response you make but I do believe there is more involved as far as how much you actually earn - higher ratings, more responses, different things. Best just to have fun, post quality discussions and responses and get to know people.

My lowest earnings was $6.00. And this was done right before payout due to answering duplicate responses.

My lowest earning was $0.1 only as i posted only one response, and sometimes i was not active too and got 0 many times, but i am back to mylot and slowly increasing my mylot earning and i am very eagerly waiting for my first earning from mylot, just waiting for that moment when my earnings will be credited to my paypal account, feb was very pathetic month for me as i earned only $4 in this enitre month and my last months earning was $8 so all together its $12 now. may i will be more active from next month as i am totally free now and can spen a lot of time at mylot.

I must admit sometimes I spend too much time on mylot and other things suffer, I am addicted but my earnings reflect it (here at least). I'll be getting my first payment and it will be over $30 I'm thrilled and will be even more when it's in my paypal account.

I think my lowest earning is yesterday because of some sort of personal problem I can't type and I can't compose myself that's why I earn only $.40 to bad ha!ha!ha! But another month is coming and we shall put all positive outlook and start the month right by posting credible answer to quality discussion. we can make it byfaithonly!!
