Do you tell people in your everyday life that you do Mylot.com and surveys,etc? My mother knows and my husband knows. They would never do anything like this. It is just a part of who I am. I cut coupons. I don't have to. I just do. I like being frugal. I think the few other people I have told about it and tried to get into it think I am clueless with the exception of maybe one or two. Most people who really need money, consider this to be a waste of time. Why? What do you think?

I tried in the beginning just to tell them how fantastic it is, and they are not interested, they keep on telling me, chat rooms and forums are not for them. I even received email now from my friends with all kind of warnings against sites like this. The more I try to explain the more they don't listen. Now I've stopped, people only listen to what they want to hear. My hubby finds it intriguing that I enjoy myself so much, and he will ask every night, and what had your friend so and so to say today:)

No I don't tell people that I try these things for getting some money.I don't have a job presently and I try these money making sites to make money.Most of the people don't have a good impression of these things and make fun of the people doing these things.Though I know that myLot is good but still the amount of time spent is too much and money we make is quite small.I think most of the people think it as a waste of time as most of the money making sites are scams and don't pay anything.

Yes, I tell people about mylot and all the other sites I earn money from, like helium.com. There is no reason why I shouldn't tell them since most of them wonder why Iam ever at my computer.

I've told some of the people in my family because they are always checking to see what I'm doing on the computer, waiting for me to get off so they can use it. This is no more a waste of time than playing a game or spending time in a chat-room.

I am not ashamed either. However, I do not appreciate the attitude of others.

Well, this isn't exactly the greatest way in the world to make money--although I wonder what it would be like with several of sign-ups under your name... I just Love the opportunity to be here, to respond to ideas from around the world, and to actually make money (albeit little, but still...)...

I have two sign ups and neither are posting right now. It depends on if they are really into it.

Yeah... I tell my friends.. I'm proud to be here in my lot I don't care If I get paid a cent per day...as long as i enjoy it.. have you ever thinked that my lot is not just a paying site???...I think It's a learning site... I learn new things everyday I logged here. exchanging thoughts with different personality of people makes you wiser. I don't care if they would laugh at me... laugh till they drop...who cares??, that doesn't matter.. at least i'm doing something worthwhile... I'm learning new things and participating on productive discussions... rather than doing nothing at all and critisizing others

In everyday life, I do not usually discuss things like this, we have other matters to discuss, but with friends I do, sometimes they are curious, so I tell them until you try you will not be able to appreciate, however not all have computers of their own, those who have I send them links but perhaps they do not enjoy as I do, because i cant find them in my referrals

Even though there are a lot of mylotters, many are inactive. I think we are a minority. The rest of the world is saying, you do this?

I told some of my friends about this opportunity of twin benefit of earning and enjoying through mylot . My wife knows and insists me on being regular at it . But none of my friends are not having internet and hence they are not willing to listen attentively to what i told them about mylot .

Oh yes I tell people as often as I get a chance. It is kind of like spreading the word about Jesus I guess. Most of us are shy when it comes to sharing. My wife's nephew is married to a stay-at-home mom and she has embraced the mystery shopping and surveys as a good way to help make a living for their family. Most people just don't realize as I do that you can genuinely make $100 to $200 or more per week simply sharing your opinions via surveys. I too am a coupon clipper, an anal accountant, and a frugal freak. I hope to be able to shed the light more with my profile & a blog.

Absolutely true! Maybe the reasons we are shy is because we live in an age where people think nothing of rolling their eyes when we share something we think is important and can benefit them. People complain when about how miserable they are and if you share your faith in Jesus they don't want to hear it. People talk about how they cannot make ends meet and you share your ways doing it and it is too much trouble for them or they consider it penny candy. I clip coupons and I save tons of money doing it.

yes, just like you i tell my close friends and relatives. my friends do know the things i do here in mLot for if not, then i won't have any referrals at all right? my grandma also knew this mylot thing and she said, i think our electric bill will cost more than that mylot will pay you on your payday. ha ha! funny but true. my uncle also knew and i urge him to join here to earn extra money. my two siblings also joined under my referral link. It is not a thing to be kept as a secret. MyLot is a thing to be considered as one of the helping community available around. :)
