How many friend have you got on your MyLot friends list? I've been a member for almost two months now and up till now I have 55 friends. I dont send much friends request around really, most I accepted. How about you? Is your goal having a lot of friends or those whose discussions or answers you really can relate to?

When I first started on myLot, Over a year ago, I would just accept and Send out FRs to people that I knew and had seen on discussions. I have started over thirty discussions and only 1 ever made it into double digits. I had 48 friends on my list about a week ago. Then I read a discussion by "ronreyes" http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1118753.aspx I had noticed that he was getting hundreds of responses to his discussions and he had posted no more times than I had. Part of his secret is a huge friends list. The more friends you have the more people see your discussions. So I stopped being so selective and started going through my interest categories and sending out FR's to everyone in them. Now I have almost 400 friends and even my older discussions are starting to get more responses. Now I have 6 discussions in double digits and my star rating has gone up a point! I have realized that this can be a site where you make friends if that is what you want. Or it can be a great networking tool where you can get lots of eyes to your blog. And to be honest I found this site while researching ways to promote my blog. So that was my original intent for joining myLot. I have made a lot of friends along the way and will continue to do so. In fact since I have been sending out FR's I have met a lot more people who share my interests. And I have a lot more choice of discussions to post on(like this one)And isn't that why we are here?

I agree more friends means more people seeing your topics. Just recently I started using friends started, before I mainly used new, but there are so much useless topics that I started using friends started where I find much more interesting things. Maybe I should try getting more friends..thanks for the advice ;)

Hi mojcica! I have about 60 friends here in myLot. I really didn't check before I posted here in your discussion. When I started here more than 3 weeks ago, I used to request for friends because I practically don't know anyone here except for one. But recently, I really haven't done that and noticed that people request from me. And I find it okay. I welcome anyone who wants to be my friend even only here in myLot.

Hi mojcica, I never counted before, I currently have 128. My method of getting friends has been to request those that have similar interests, lifestyle and ambitions to me. I have found though, that a core few stand out from the rest, usually those that I have requested, although some that have requested me have become very close friends and have been very helpful to my cause.
