It's been a week that I was not able to post any topic to discuss,I only keep on responding to several discussions and post comment to anyone who respond to my topic.I'm trying to think of what to discuss but really I was not able to eventhough I'm looking on my various interests just to think of something interesting to post but there is no single idea popping out in my mind... funny!.Only this moment I was able to think of what to discuss. This happened to me several times already.Surely,most of you here had experience it also or had gone through this.Am I right? I will be pleased if you share!Thank's! Happy posting!

I also fell in the same situation i joined mylot just now and i feel we should discuss or share as per our mood and how open you discuss more people respond you.As this is the natural thing you put on mylot discussion board so many ppl love to engage with this topic.choosing a good topic and interesting topic is as much difficult as its so simple also .when you discuss something you feel from thoughts and simplify it that give you more response. its my way of thinking rest there are so many experience players are there on mylot they have much idea about it.

yeah i did experience that..no idea will come out even though i had browse the various interests..but i think you need to relax a bit or ease up..and never think of it yet..since it will just pop out in your mind..what about daily activities and occurrences in your neighbor or athome..just for a start to give you ideas to formulate..what do you think?

You did? I have ever join such site like this, here in Indonesia - Pintunet.com. But I joined mylot for a quite long time ago. I forgot and did not realize that this is one of interesting social site that we can share to each other about any topic to the people all around the world.

Its no good worrying if you cannot think of a topic. I find if I worry nothing comes. If I just answer discussions a topic will suddenly come into my head and away I go again.

yes u r right. i just shortly started mylotting n i could have most of the things to write on the interest i have choosen n i also started with many discussions but now from a few days i exhausted n dont have anything to start with n i m finding difficult to start. before a few days i started a discussion based on motorbikes as i had a motorbike fest in my city n i could come a cross so many different kinds of vehicles here n i had no reply for that from others i just wonder why , i can understand its not a topic for girls but what had happened to guys here even they have lost interest from bikes or what , in this way for more of my discussions i have left with no replies. and from many days i m just repling the discussions here n a very few discussions i have started with nowadays. n morever sometimes the discussions started here r somewhat u cannot answer at all n just need to skip. what do u think is it happened to u also sometimes or its only with me ?

I felt the same way for weeks now. Since I came back from my vacation in Taipei it seems I hadn't had anything much to write about or respond to lately. Sometimes I do come up with topics I could possibly write about here and needed answers to. But then when I log on to myLot, I find there are discussions already about what I had thought of so I just respond to those instead of start a new one. Not so original of me.

Sure, it's happening to me to around here lol... could you believe, I was actually planning to post something before I was login here on my lot. But then just as soon I'm logged in, I saw so many discussion, specially from my friend list, and then I start to reply it one by one, then suddenly... when I finished with all those responses... I forget what I was planned to write before... hahahahaha... well, I guess I have to wait for the mood to come back to post one topic or two hihihihi

Oh surely most or all of us here have experienced it already so don't be bother by that cause it just a proof that we are all humans here that was once feel tired and can't able to think of anything. So let's just better enjoy the community!

It happens to me too! So, I found a solution. I don't decide to start a discussion unless I find a topic. I mean, It is just that I don't think of a topic because I want to start a discussion. But when something strikes my mind, that could be a topics on mylot, then only I start a discussion. That works well for me. My mind doesn't get tired of thinking for a topic and even I don't feel sad because of not posting a discussion. I do mylotting in spare time so, instead of thinking for a topic I quickly go through other's discussions and respond to them.

I totally agree with you Bestie, sometimes nothing comes up and I even get bored and go to another forums or go to do something else, but that is just a little phase. You just do what you can and all will be ok!

Sometimes, when I deliberately look for some topics to discuss in Mylot, I'll end up with nothing. Thinking too hard on something may spoil the flow of thoughts. When I look for ideas, I'll do something unrelated, for instance, listening to my favourite songs, read a book, chat with friends, singing, and while I'm doing these activities, new ideas usually pop up. So try not to force it, just go with the flow! Happy posting to you too!

Yes bestie it does happen to me also. There were days that I can't think of good topics to post also. As if I really am blank so I don't post any topic but just responding and just enjoying that. I think it is very normal. I'm glad you were able to think of good topic now. Happy posting.

Yeah, you're not alone. I do have the same previously and many days here. However, I then started to become observer everywhere I am. I was remembered when I was in the meeting, from there I did gain a lot of topics to discuss here like Why do people in the meeting crumpled their empty cup of coffee? Why do the presenter tend to hold his hand at the head or back and even dance?, etc. From there on, I was very observant so that I can post something interesting here started from the basic ideas or common act that we can see to others, this way, it is easily understand by the members here and then they can post responses to the discussions. But even though I was doing such activity, there is still time that I am totally doesn't have topics to share or post here, so instead, I just respond to the existing discussions, the funny thing in here is, even the existing discussions sometimes, I could not respond since I don't know what to write.lol. So it is normal here.

Sometimes it just happen. I am not sure if this is what experts call a writer's block but I experienced it many times,too. When no matter how hard you force your mind to thing of something interesting to write about and be productive about it, no idea would just come out! Anyway, you're back here again, congratulations and good luck!
