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.

Exploring the outdoors

    I had been feeling a bit low lately and realized that what I really wanted to do was to spend some time with my family. The best way, it seemed, was to have a family get together in the midst of the outdoor beauty that my backyard offered. There were a lot of different ideas going through my mind regarding how to organize the get together. Finally, I decided that having a barbecue was an excellent option since it brought the family together and the family members could also enjoy some tasty food.

    My wife has always been a fan of backyard living, so my idea appealed to her as well. We wanted to host the barbecue as early as possible, so we started our preparations immediately. Since our backyard had never been developed properly ever since we moved into this house, we had to start from scratch. This occasion provided the perfect excuse and impetus to get it developed. We purchased appropriate outdoor furniture, contacted the guys for cleaning out the pool and getting the landscaping done, and also got the right kind of barbecue grills for the barbecue.The landscaping guys came over and mowed the lawn, applied the mulch to the garden up front, trimmed the trees, and leveled out the backyard. The pool guys came next. They drained out the old water, scrubbed it cleaned, installed a new filter and suggested a variety of covers for the pool as well told us about maintenance services they offered.

    I can not stress enough how important it is to spend time with one's family. It might not seem important to a person initially, but enjoying with one's loved ones is the best way to unwind and makes the memory last a lifetime. On an ending note, try to remember that whatever type of outdoor activity you decide to do, it is the right type of preparation that makes it all the more worthwhile. In the future, I plan on concentrating on other things that will enhance my backyard living experience, like purchasing outdoor furniture covers, a tool shed and a patio heater to keep us warm during the chilly months.
