Are you a creator or replyer ?

June 9, 2010 1:05pm CST
I am relatively new on here. I have replied to 32 discussions and created 2, well this will be my third. Do you prefer to reply to other peoples discussions, create your own or do a bit of both ?

Usually I just reply to other people's discussions. Most of the time I don't have any good ideas for a discussion to start. Even if I do, unfortunately a lot of the time I don't get that many replies in them. Most only get a handful of replies. Since I don't usually have a lot of ideas, I guess I'd have to say I prefer replying for that reason.

Honestly, I go through my stages where I am either one or another on this website. There are times where I just reply to loads of topics and rarely create anything. The creative well is just dry and thus there are no new topics coming out of my mind. Other times, there might be a time where I have lots of topics so I post them and spend the vast majority of my time trying to keep up with those. Its a pendulum that swings back and forth, depending on the week a lot of the times. As of late, I have been in my topic creating phase. However, I just have a bit of a feeling that is going to change here before long. It goes back and forth a lot of the time. It does change from week to week and often times day to day. Sometimes its one, sometimes its another, sometimes its a balance, but who knows what today will bring.

I do both, but mostly, I respond, as it is easier than starting discussions, because I have a hard time coming up with a good topic of interest, at least enough to get others interested in responding. At least with responding, I don't have to try to come up with a topic. I do find that my mind does go blank sometimes, and even then, I don't alsways have things to say. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Herro Glennbradbury I started my return with being a responder. Now that I've been back a while and read many responses, I do both. Right now it is probably 85 - 15%. I think eventually they will more equal. I am very careful about the discussions I start and do a search before I start. I comment to those who have responded to my discussions first, second I look at the right side of the screen for discussions, then I go to discussions that have no responses. Lastly, unless another discussion triggered something in my mind, I will start discussions. Prosperous mylotting

i'm more of a replyer than a creator. although i consider myself both. i only start discussions that i really feel like starting... not just for the sake of having a discussion started....

I'm a bit of both...I try to create one discussion per day. But mostly I just reply on topics...its kinda hard sometimes to think of your own discussion.

You can do both at the same time. If you got good topics you will get better responses. Ideally, provide comments and it gives more improvement in all respects. Best of luck. Thank-s

Doing both is more advantageous to live on mylot,because it gives lot of inspiration which you reply or create. Creating is little hard because you should have the capacity to again reply but replying is easy as many create which is readily available. I do both.....

I give you props on a good discussion question! I mostly respond to discussions. I find it easier to respond to popular discussions than to create my own popular discussions. I have created 19 discussions though and I always respond to the people who reply to it. I love myLot, don't you?
