This is only the third time that I will be posting a discussion. How about you?

For more than 3 months that I have been here in myLot, I have only come up with 2 discussions (which, by the way, are not responded by many). Since then I have this fear of posting and sharing my own thoughts with people here, and I don't really know what kind of discussions should I start in the first place. I can see that there are so many interesting discussions, so I just answer them. I think that it's funny to not be able to share myself, because to tell you the truth, I am like that even with my friends and others. So I was just wondering.. do you post many discussions here in myLot? Do you talk about a lot of things? Is it really something that you like doing even with your friends and around people whom you don't even know?

Hi off! Please do not feel disheartened if you are not able to start your own discussions, there is nothing wrong even if you keep responding. By the passage of time, you will get to learn how to start good discussions. I keep a balance between starting new discussions and responding to discussions started by my friends.

Hi there dpk! Thank you for the comfort, I know I can really use it. I just also want to talk about interesting things like others that's why I was thinking of posting my own discussions too, but the thing is, it seems that I was really not for it. I can't think of something to say! Haha. It is good that you balance the two. I just wish I could be like that, and I know I will learn from all of you here. Thanks for responding. Take care! :)

Hi, Sounds strange, but good now you have responded to so many discussion now you know what type of discussion topic should be there so that many members respond to it. Personally I have also not started many discussion but ofcourse more than you, and couple of them also received good number of responses. It feels really good to see number of responses to our discussion. But anyways, just keep on participating and do not worry about number of discussion started, as starting discussion will not help you to earn, but the comment you put on the responses you get or your responses to others discussion will help you to earn. All the best.

Hi there bashish! Yes you are right, it really feels good to see that many responded to your discussion. Well that's only what I assume now because so far I haven't receive a lot of discussions yet so I don't really know the actual feeling. Haha. I just hope that I'll be able to start discussions more compared these past months. Thanks for responding, and good luck. Keep in touch! :)

I've posted quite a bit more discussions then that I'm not quite sure to be exact but my estimate is probably anywhere from forty to seventy give or take. I've been active on the site for a while getting close to a year now actually.

There are a lot of people that post far more discussions than I do. I try to limit myself to starting one (maybe two) discussions a day so that I can spend adequate time with them. I have started some discussions that really haven't had a great outcome, but I've also started some discussions that have had a far greater result than I could have ever hoped for. The things that I talk about really differ with my mood too, I've noticed.

Hi there dorannmwin! I think having 1-2 discussions a day is healthy, and I could also have it like that, if I have free time. And yes, it sometimes depends in the mood. It is good that you actually vary your discussions because personally, I enjoy answering to discussions which are not that serious and which particularly interest me. Thanks for responding. I look forward to answering your discussions sometime, too. Take care! :)

I have started some discussions, but I don't start that many. It is much easier for me to post responses to other discussons than start my own, so that is what I do mostly. It is hard to come up wiath a good topic, one that others will be interested in responding to, so that is why I just don't start all that many. The ones I have started though, I have responses to them so that is good too, as it is so frustrating to start a discussion and not get any or many responses. I, myself only respond to ones that interest me, as I am sure others do the same as well. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Hi there rosekiss! Yes I am also kind of disappointed when I started with my previous discussions and not able to receive a number of responses. But it's okay. I know that not having too many discussions will not really affect our participation here because we could always share opinions about our interests anytime. Thanks for responding. I look forward to answering your discussions, too. Take care! :)
