For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

How friendly are you and are you able to make friends easily?

    Just like in real life, the people on the net fall into various categories. I have been on the net for many years and I guess I have met a wide variety of people from all walks of life. During this net journey I noticed that not all people whom I met were friendly. Some of them are downright mean and rude. Some people hide behind a mask of civility and the mask comes off once they realize that the other person doesn’t belong to the same group as they do and then they start off on an offensive behavior. But on the other hand, many people are very close, while others very friendly and open to discussions.

    I try to be as friendly as possible and I enjoy talking to just about anyone. Sometimes I strike up conversation with total strangers during journeys if I find someone good to talk to. I start talking with them and in this way and I have made few friends during these journeys. It’s not always easy for me to strike up a conversation with a total stranger, but I am always looking for opportunities to strike up an interesting conversation and make new friends whenever possible. I become very friendly to the people I already know, but sometimes I feel like I am a bit reserved with the people I don't know too much.

    On the net, it is extremely difficult to know who the other person is. The net is a wild and dangerous place full of hidden dangers. It does not really matter to me much what’s the real identity of the person on the other side as long as they are friendly towards me, don’t post anything inappropriate on any one of my sites, have a positive attitude towards me, have a lively attitude towards me and are able to strike up an interesting conversation every so often. On the other hand, I have people on my messenger list that I have known for many decades and in real life also….yet these people still manage to throw a few surprises my way. Sometimes I am amazed that even with such a massive amount of passage of time; I am still friends with a few of my old friends.

    How friendly a person is and how easily they are able to make friends in real life as well as on the net determine how meaningful their life will be. A lot of people are rather unfriendly in real life, bitter with what life has dealt them and they carry this baggage through out their life and they forget to leave it behind when they enter the net world. The bitterness they carry into the net world prevents them from acquiring new friendships and are not able to make new friends very easily. Others simply don’t have the right social networking skills and they simply get lost in the woods. So, if you don’t have the right skill sets to survive jungle out there….it’s never too late to start. Crack a smile, even if it’s a wicked grin and enjoy some quality time with your friends. Nurture those friendship and watch them blossom over a period of time. Friendships are like trees which have to be nurtured and watered every so often. Like trees, these friendships will grow and flourish and give back much more than you have put in.
