Lots of good discussions to pick from!

I had only intended to spend a short time on site today. There are so many things I need to do, otherwise. But there were so many interesting and thoughtful discussions I found myself staying longer. Some days I have trouble getting interested in anything. Then other days, I have trouble stopping. Do you thing good discussions breed more good discussions and that things seem to run in cycles here?

Hiya susieq..glad to see you here as always! I actually sometimes have a hard time catching up with the discussions of all my friends here now that I'm doing more writing of articles and my novels...and tonight I did some more photo scans of my slides and submitted them to a magazine..so wish me luck there I try to pace myself as far as all the discussions...most times I spend here, I'm replying to people who responded to my discussions...I had a whole bunch of them rattled out at once...now that I don't have any more ideas..for the moment anyway, I'm backtracking to answer my friends discussions...like yours

Glad to know you have been working instead of playing, lol!! Have you checked out the marketplace and contest listings on Helium lately? They have had some good ones, but I haven't been in the mood to write. I'll be thinking about your submissions.

I always seem to be working...LOL. I scanned some more photos tonight, touched them up at Photoshop, and submitted them to a magazine that had a listing of photos they were looking for. Just checked out Helium but didn't see anything to write about for their contests or marketplace..but will keep looking since they change so often--have you had any luck there?

Not lately. I get discouraged in the contests because of the avid writers that write 20-30 articles. I just can't write that much!

That has happened to me more than once! I'll respond to a discussion and my mind just starts revving. Before long, I've added one or two new discussions. I also spend much more time here than I had intended. But some days I just can't get motivated. I'll respond to discussions that I find interesting, and there are always quite a few, but I just can't get motivated to think of an interesting subject. I have noticed today that not many discussions were started, at least not among the people in my friends list. I've responded more to the random discussions listed on the left than to those emailed to me, simply because not many have been emailed. Some days I just can't seem to find anything that really interests me. I've had a few days like that. There are always some interesting posts, but not many. This has been one day like that. I keep getting up and doing something that I should have done yesterday (because yesterday I was on here most of the day. LOL). I guess it all balances out in the end, though. Overall, I would still like to spend more time in myLot than doing anything else.

Sometimes I find some good discussions among those that haven't been answered yet. Thanks for your reply.

I really have trouble thinking of things to start discussions about. Don't know why.

Yeah they are a lot of good disscussions to reply to before I went to the gym I made close to 10 post in less then 30 min which thats pretty good. I havent even gone past the 2nd page to check on what I missed for the past few weeks since I wasnt on here. I think I could get a lot of post made today im aiming for 50 post today or close to it.

That is a lot of time to spend on the site! I can't spend that much time, but it is interesting. Hope you make your goal and thanks for posting here!
