Last night I was on babysitting duty for my two grandchildren ,they were tucked safely in bed and I as usual turned the computer on,and logged in to Mylot.I always check the `My friends` section first,and there was very little there..then I looked at afew other sections,and found nothing very new there either!So I decided to go and have a journey on the internet,it was fun and I ended up reading some very funny stories online.But what do youdo if Mylot is so quiet?

[b]It never happened to me. Every time i open my lot. It's always buzzing with life and activity. I always have difficulty choosing right discussion to join. I always visit the no responses section to help newbies like me. Then i alternate between my friends post, hot topics, and today's top.[/b]

If I stay on myLot I tend to cruise all the categories but if I can't find anything that tickles my fancy then I go to Facebook and write a letter to my surrogate daughter, or a I phone a friend on Skype. If that fails I may go and look at my blog. Otherwise I might well peruse the BBC and New York Times websites and if all that fails; I go to bed. I usually look to see if you have posted anything though. That always cheers me up. Oh, I suck up to my friends too.

I have a peruse too,but the heading has to catch my eye,I said to Rose I considered looking at another forum in conjunction with Mylot,but I really think that one is enough for me.I have been looking at the newspapers online since ive been in Warminster,but thats just because its not a good idea to try to read one,its usually in the grubby clutches of a terror on legs,but saying that he is a beautiful child.still a little spotty from the chickenpox though.The sun is shining here,and im splicing my mainbrace and girding my loins as im in charge again later on...and garibaldi`s ..i need a sugar boost.

I couldn't cope with more than one site. I've looked at a few and seen some familiar names on them, but not for me I think. I need a babysitter. I was ill last night and am in bed. I have "borrowed" daughter's laptop, but I'm not doing much. Can teddy and I pop round about 7.30. I'll be good. LOL.

As long as Teddy has no evil intentions towards Graham then thats fine! Three have gone to a barbecue,one who shall remain nameless..who I love and adore has gone to the maker of books,and the little one has just gone down for the night.The Persil has been hammered,the vacuum cleaner is exhausted,and look out Monday,because Ripley here I come...still homesick Pike. Ps.use ice cubes somewhere to reduce your temperature..but dont put them on Mrs Ps side of the bed.

I am still freshed here in MyLot for only today I become a member and if MyLot will be so quiet often then I guess I have to try the new, recent discussion if those people in my friendslist have nothing to respond on.......the same way I do today because I still have 3 friends in my list that I requested.

There are sometimes you may encounter a quite or silent in a discussion especially if not very well interesting topic. Just relax and chill out for seeking enjoyable topics to be discuss..

I have a good look around Hatley,but im sure it depends on how creative your brain is on that day!sometimes I can look and see a lot that I know I will respond to,other days there is nothing that jumps out at me,I usually pop back in later if thats the case.

I useally have plenty to keep me intertained in here between all the discussion and all. If at any given time I don't see of any thing interesting to me I'll go play games and do my surveys which I have plenty of those always for me to do where I'm signed up with so many. MyLot useally has it's fast and slow paced modes depending on the day.

Ive never used the internet for games as such.Ive been trying on and off to master chess for the last three years or so.but lol I seem to be able to grasp the moves,its working out how the rest of it goes!!But I have a general look around and maybe a game of Scrabble and then I pop back into Mylot.

Hello ruby222, I usually look at my e-mail box and do my responses when that finish I chesck my friends list and the I have look at today discussions and respond to them and then I might start a discussion, if nothing else is going on I hust watch t.v.for a while and wait for any e-mail to come up.

I do much the same as you,if there are no topics that hold any interest for me,then I will go off and pop back later,but Im sure Mylot is a lure for the majority.

It is hard when it goes like that, I just cannot seem to get motivated then to answer anything. I always just do what you do, go through my emails, then my friends to make sure I have not missed anything and then I go through all the sections to see if there is anything else. Failing that I give up and go and do something else.

Thats so true,sometimes maybe either you are tired,or not on top form so the topics may not catch your attention,but then I will usually take off and do something else.I dont belong to any other sites,just Mylot..I considered looking at another forum,but thought one was enough really.

I have faced this situation more than twice. I select discussions only if they interest me. Only then I can share my views. Sometimes I would not be able to choose the right topic for me. If I'm not able to find any interesting topic, then I switch of to other sites or anyother work.But surprisingly you can find more interesting topics if you return back to mylot in few more minutes..

That is very true,if you see a topic that catches your eye then you feel the need to reply,but I suppose it is all in the title of the topic.

i don't know.maybe your friends are busy with other things.and you know,we don't stay here for a long time.we must do other things for live and others.if you stay here too more times,you will not have enough time to do your important thing,although mylot is very interesting.are you often come here ever ? and we will not to earn too much money in here you know.so there are too many people who are usually not things to do in here. if the student often in here,who he pass the test.and the worker often come in here who can earn money for themself. and if i often come in here ,and i will not to do othings that is more important than here.so many people have to leave here for a long time.but not so long.they will come here becasue they need mylot and you.

For me the answer is simple ,I just like to have a write in Mylot everyday,and if I go for a few days without posting I miss it!

I just signed in last night for only a few minutes.I still don't feel quite well because of recurring migraine attack.I did not notice what you said.But there are days when i thought/see that discussions are the same after one day,few only are added.And if such time comes i'd still go and find some discussions that gets my interest.

I check my email inbox and that is where I find the Mylot buzz. I check each one that gets into my mailbox and that is how I know something is happening with my discussions and responses. After doing all of that, I proceed to respond to top discussions. I wonder how they get to become top discussions. Hmmmm..
@ruby222 (4848)

I look at my favorite topic and that is travel, then I look at other topics that are similar like traveling and travelling. Next I look at related topics like traveler and travel the world. If the travel topics are thin on the ground I look at friends discussions, enjoy life, life, parenting, internet, laptops, dogs and other topics that I enjoy discussing. I thank members that have given me a best response or add comments to replies to discussions that I have started.

Looking at travel on the internet can be very interesting,as can be looking at the Estate agents sites,looking at the property for sale.You could easily travel the world on a laptop.I tend to go to friends topics first ,and then on to the others from there.Im sure we all have our different ways of working through Mylot.

Hi ruby, If this is slow or no notifications and nothing to respond..I will hang out at you tube and watch my favorite videos, songs or anything that I will come in my mind.. A lot of times too, I will be checking my friends at friendster and send some messages! I am very busy Mylotting this time and no time for long chat with them..LOL! I also drop by in news site to hear what's happening all over the globe!
