Do you often feel it too?lately, I am super tired posting and initiating discussions because I just generate fewer responses even if my topics are sensible. I am just wondering why. So right now I prefer to answer and post my responses rather than initiate discussion. Aside from acquiring headache what topic to be posted, I am free from spending each moment why my discussions are not box office hits.lol! How about you, do you often feel that way too?

Well I usually post once in a while and I do more of commenting. My average responses to my posts are usually 16 - 20 posts and no more than that. I do not know it but I guess it has something to do with having more friends in here. The more friends you have in here the better chances that you will get your post seen by them when they are also in here.

Gosh you are pretty luck than me because there are discussions of mine which earned only 1 response,lol! Actually I have so many friends here, so many members requested for "add", right now I stopped accepting request,hehehe. Because my profile page is already "overweight" with friends, I don't know what's the real value and advantages of having so many friends here.hehehe, but anyway I understand that people commented on our discussions because they find it interesting and have knowledge about the topic, so of course I cannot complain.

but aside from being viewed by friends in the lists and tab of friends started discussions, they are being notified through emails when we start one. before the upgrade, friends added are automatically turned notify off, so we have to turn them on when we wish to receive notifications when they have new topics posted. but after the upgrade, they are automatically turned on. so everyone, that will be added after the upgrade, will surely be notified, unless we turned them off, or they turned us off.

Maybe it's a normal human being thing to feel bad when you think nobody cares for you, or nobody notices you. I guess we all tend to post a lot for us also to earn a lot. hehehe I am actually a newbie here, i registered months ago but I just do this stuffs right now. I am just hoping that I could really make some money out of it.

It's funny how you remind me of myself before when I was new here because I posted the same topic about being tired of initiating discussions and not having responses even if they are sensible. I had a respond to this and so I shall say to you, a wisdom I've attained here in mylot, it is okay not to have responses to your discussions. I mean, yes it is disappointing but you'll be surprise to know that Everybody probably also experienced this atleast once in their mylot career. I think you should continue striving and that goes for me to, but it is very important to enjoy your days here. I have actually convinced myself that I came here to learn and have fun more over earning. Happy mylotting!

Hello! Oh my gosh, really?you already posted a similar discussion?hehehe.Sorry, I never noticed it, anyway, thanks for your response! Actually, you're right, the wisdom I also gained being an active here in myLot is something I really treasured a lot, because it gives me an idea how to value the word "patience" and "determination". Thanks and Have a nice day!

Hello! Thanks for your response. Yes, it's a lot better commenting other people's discussions that posting our own topic. It is mind bogging what discussions to post to lure members to respond.hahaha

Hello! I find very easy also to just answer discussions rather than post, because my mind sometimes is not conditioned to think of any credible and sensible topics.

I felt that way back when I was still starting here. It really sucks when you don't generate much comments on your discussions, so I stopped doing that, and just post some comments on discussions that I like.. Sometimes I still post discussions, but that only happens when I really want to talk about something..

Yes, it is so disappointing when you find out that your discussions don't get much responses granting you have many friends here, that's what I feel most often.lol!

Hi jlamela, I have been posting responses as well as comments only for quite a long time. If I'm not mistaken the last discussion written was on the first week of December last year. Firstly I'm not good in writing discussion. Secondly I'm rather busy and don't have considerable time to take care of it by adding comment in every response received. anyway it's quite easy to take care of it if receiving less responses. Therefore at the moment I rather enjoy posting responses and comments which interest me once I have spare time. As far as we know we would be awarded more if starting new discussion and leaving comments in all the responses. I really envy those members who are so lucky and having more time posting here However I feel content I still could have spare time having fun here though it is a short while on and off Happy posting!

There are lots of other interesting activities available here. And we are awarded in whatever activities participating here. Since we are tired of writing new discussion so why not just feel free to join in other interesting activities which will bring fun to us. I think starting new discussion as well as other activities we participate here will affect the rating. Keep on mylotting in your favorite activities here frequently jlamela. I believe feedback will be shown on the rating star soon. Happy posting

Hello! Yes, sometimes boring is unavoidable. You are right that it's not for my best interest to force my mind to come up with a topic. So right now, I just take everything slowly and go with the flow of life.

As far as I am concerned, I think I sedom feel that I am tired of post a discussion here. I love mylot so much, which I usually log in everday as long as I have time. Yeah, what you have said, I just have the same feeling in the beginning of my first in mylot, later, I come to know that may be there is something that you write does not match the topic that mylotters' interests. So ,just write some post that mylotters' interests.Have a nice day.

Yes, actually before posting any discussions, I will have to go over first on different topics that other myLot members posted to get an idea. So far, this is one of my most answered discussions. LOL!Thanks a lot!

I stopped making discussions because i feel pressured when responding to each comment. If you have enough comments, you will run out of ideas and you basically have to repeat what you have just said in your other responses and just try to use different words just to make that comment unique. There are times also that i don't feel like responding to those who made a comment which is unfair to those who did. So posting to others discussions work for me because this way i can choose which discussion to respond.

Bingo :D, you got it right my friend, I feel this too often, i should better say too too often, I'm at my home page and i'm wondering what to write about, and that feeling is super irritating, even at those times i'm not even able to put my head to reply to my own started discussions. Then i close the mylot tab :D, and switch to facebook, or get myself a cup of coffee :D,

Some discussions are trash because of the other ones burying them! If you post a good discussion, the newer ones will be posted more, because of some members with little to no free time they won't beable to reach yours. Sometimes that is not the case, though.

Sometimes I do get tired of posting on mylot. For example, these past few days, including today, it's seemed by desire to actually log in has decreased drastically Maybe it's time for me to take a break perhaps.

Yes, sometimes it's a little bit boring, thinking what topic to be discussed, so I ended up responding to discussions by my friends rather than initiating, which is often tedious.

I will post discussions only when I think I have a brilliant one. I don't really start all that many, as I find it hard coming up with a topic that others will be interested reading about. I must mainly post responses to other discussions. There are soem users that must love posting discussions, as my inbox has been getting flooded with them lately, and the sad thing of it is, it is from dome of the same users who post lots of discussions everyday. I think basically, they are just trying to make as much as they can, and follow up with them. To me that is a big waste of time when they do that, and also, the more discussions they post, the less responses they will receive, as users will get tired of seeing the same user post one discussion after another. I know I am getting tired of it. I don't respond to them either, as I just let them go and ignore them. Some of the discussions are meaningless anyway, and sound dumb, well at least to me they do anyway. I would rather see a user post one good discussion a day and get respondes then post as much as they can, and get nothing. Maybe they will come to realize that they are wasting their time, especially if they get deleted. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

That's why I am having a hard time, posting discussions because I only choose a topic which is sensible and interesting and while agonizing through out the day what sensible topic to be discussed, I ended up--uhmmm..nothing.lol! But there are times that I love posting discussions also. Right now, it really takes one full hour to think at least one discussion.

Hello! Thanks for your honest response, when I was still new here, I was also passionate in posting discussions until the eagerness subsides and melted down to answering discussions only.hehe!

There are really moments like that, where you find it difficult to start a discussion coz you can't think of a topic to discuss. In times like that, it's time to browse other's discussions and choose those topics that interest you and then you can respond to it. If you often receive few responses in your discussions, maybe you just need to try those topics that are more general and easier to answer and related to everyone. Additional tip is to add more friends, because the more friends you have, the more chance for your discussions to be read, which also means the more chance to be responded. Another tip is to comment on all the responses you got, coz it will keep your discussions alive. And another thing to consider is you should always be nice in all your posts, whether it's a response, a comment or a started discussion. Well, these are some tips I can give for you to be able to receive better number of responses. These are based on my experience here in myLot. Have a nice day! Happy myLotting!
