I like to post discussions but for the time being I have been doing a lot of responding instead. It looks liked most of the topics that I could think of has been posted by all of you. Give me a break...guys..lol. I am equally as curious and I believe anyone could answer any question/topics of their interest easily but to come up with a relatively relevant question/ topic of discussion takes a lot of creative thinking which I truly admire. With that I applaud the pioneer Mylotters who has been keeping the site interesting and alive..:) So everyone, do share and tell, which one keeps your spirit soaring - post a topic or respond and why?And which topic/topics do you like best and whose?

I like both creating and responding discussions. I tend to take care of my own discussions and try to comment every response I receiver as far as possible. In return I also try my best to respond the discussion of each of them, unless I couldn’t answer theirs if their discussions are not within my ability to respond. So I have to spend some time to finish my job before I start a new discussion. Apparently very often I do more responding than posting discussion. I have interest in many fields so I have wide range of interest

Hie Ikbooi, thank you for the response. As much as I like creating a discussion, I tend do a lot of responding too. They are too tempting for me to overlook..lol. It's good that you are versatile and have a wide range of interest. That indeed would lead you to a lot of advantages and you get to have more fun :) Best Wishes and Happy Posting!

Yeah, I have a wide range of interest but master of none. One of the main purposes I login mylot site daily is intend to learn more from friends here. Besides I still could enjoy chatting with friends here during my leisure. Take care and have a nice day.

I respond way more then i start topics. I just don't know what to start a topic on usually. I don't stick to any specific topics or anything like that. I just search through the different discussions and if i see one that interests me and i think i'd have something interesting to add to the discussion i respond to it.

Hie Timothy31, thank you for responding, I do that often too - responding to the one topics that are interesting but sometimes I find some responses has almost the same context...lol. So I tend not to let that bother me so much anymore and voice my views :)

Hello Desierra, I also prefer to respond than to post any discussion. May be what I feel is my complex. I am not sure. I always feel that I will not get that many responses when I post a discussion. The truth is that I am not comfortable in asking someone for something or coming out with my personal views. It might take time but I think I might come out of it sooner than I think. Mylot has made me feel comfortable and I have been posting better nowadays and it is reflecting in my earnings too. There are some mylotters who have got more than 20000 posts or discussions in their bag. How did they come up with this many discussions, I wonder? Congrats to all of them. I really envy them. I don't seem to get that much time at all.

Hie Madlees, thank you for responding. You certainly have done well to reach that reputation :) The rest who have soared higher, they have been here for some time and have more time I guess. Everyone is treading at their own pace and it's better not to compare and just have fun. And in no time we would improve in some way and get more incentives...lol So enjoy and keep posting!

Hi, Thanks for the response. I am not comparing myself with them. I do not have that much time on my hands to be present at mylot. In the limited time I have I am doing all these. What you say is right. All of us are moving at our own space and try to do what we can. I think I am able to do at an average of 6-7 posts daily. If I start my discussions I will have to spend more time here which I may not be able to. That's the main reason for not starting any discussion.

Hey there Desierra1004! I like doing both. Every night before going to bed I think of a topic that I can post by the next day. But you're right it seems that all topics that one could think of has been posted already. But I still manage to post a topic everyday. I also love to answer to a discussion especially when it is about relationships and common interest.

Hie Iskayz, thank you for responding. I guess the events of the day would have inspired you to come up with a topic for the following day. That's good reminding yourself while contributing in both.

Most of the time, I responded to other's discussion. As you say, it's really hard to come up with a creative topic to start a discussion. Maybe my life now is not that inspiring. Only now and then I have the idea of starting a discussion. Thus I always post responses.

I prefer to respond more to discussions than any thing because the more the discussions we respond to - the more variety will be in the topics we come to know about.

Hie p_vadla, thank you for responding, I guess by responding mostly gives more ideas and have this way of 'think out of the box' and create further topics. It's has its benefits and advantages, nothing could go wrong.

I do a lot of responses rather than posting. I don't really have anything to post since I think all of the topics that I am going to post have already been posted here so there is no point for me to start another one. I like replying to the posts here but I keep in mind that maybe someday I might create one topic per week I say.

I just commented and lost the post and had to write it again. I comment more than start discussions. I there have been times that I have wanted to start a discussion but there was something already there and I didn't want to copy what someone else had already wrote. I comment more than anything.

Hie Twallace, thank you for your response. I have lost commenting posts a couple of times too..lol. And there are so many topics to response to and it becomes very interesting. Looking at them, a lot of ideas keep flowing in but when reaching number 2 or 3 to comment, I have really lost track of my previous ideas by then :)

Umm whenever something comes up in my mind and I think it would be helpful or interesting for others to read, I start a discussion about it. Also, I start out a discussion when I need something or when I am searching for something. Recently, I've been responding to discussions, especially my friends'. I look for discussions that interest me. If that discussion really soothes my thinking process, I respond sincerely with my thoughts, with what I have and believe in. I'm new here, and I want to thank also everyone in myLot for making things interesting all the time.

You are welcome. Sometimes with the overlapped topics I do find interesting respond answers and that inspires me to come up with new topics for discussion. So it's not so bad altogether when they are clashes of topics but more views and opinions. Cheers and have a good time posting!

I love to write and wishes to start more discussions. But as you said, it's not that easy to start a topic since most of what is available on Earth had already posted. So what I do is response to discussions more. I just start a new one when something unusual came in to my mind.

Hi There, I think I like posting topics best. However, I do find myself responding to discussions more so than posting new ones. I think it is due to the fact that there are so many discussions being started that I really dont want to take one that is already being done. Not to mention sometimes I post a discussion and it only gets a few responses. Other times I will get 30 or 40. I just never know. I always tend to respond to things that interest me or that I am already thinking about. cheers,

I do more responding than posting because it is hard to come up with good discussions and I can usually find a bunch that interest me already posted. I can usually keep myself busy for at least an hour on other people's posts. If I get bored I will try to come up with something. Otherwise I don't start one unless something is going on that makes me think of a good discussion. It doesn't matter to me one way or the other. I just have fun on here.

Hello Harthunlusy, welcome to Mylot. I am new here too and this is my 5th day. I like it very much here and I did thought of what you mentioned at first. And the pioneer Mylotters has given me good advices. Well! To earn $2./day is possible but you need a lot of time and hard work. I have observed that one day I posted about 15 or 16 postings and I managed to earn $0.34, not sure how they were calculated though. You could experiment yourself and see. As for whether posting either a topic or responding to one, you will get more earnings/points, that I am wanting to know too. But you will earn more when your postings are more descriptive and have quality of substance ( more than one line sentence )whether it's a topic or a respond. Adding photos to your postings will be an advantage too. And there's a photo column where you could post and share with others. I think with all these add up ,you could actually be on your way to $2.00 per day. Hope this helps and enjoy yourself in Mylot. Happy earning!
