Rather respond than create discussion

I don't know why I rather respond than creating my own discussion here. I've seen that some people here can create lots of discussion in a day. Are we the same?

I think you just created a new discussion. I like to do both. I respond to the discussions which create knowledge in me.

I definitely prefer to respond to discussions instead of create them. I've created a few, but I find it's too much responsibility. Responding here means I don't have to comment on every other response or select a best response or rate each response anything like that. I suppose I don't have to when I create a discussion but I feel obligated. Responding means I don't have to do anything but make sure my own response is on topic and descriptive.

You got a point. It is also big responsibility to respond to your own discussion, and i like the word obligated. Thanks for responding anyways.

Hello friend, i like responding too. But last months i started posting my own discussions and i feel great when i can read what the other people think about the same things i think at the moment. Responding my own discussions, is great too, we share experience, i read what the other people would do if they were me. When i was new, i had few not successful discussions and i said myself "girl, stop doing it, first read what the other people are interested from and then when you are ready, post discussions". That's what i did. Answered, answered, but there were a moment when i was just checking the sections and couldn't find interesting discussions. That's how i started to make my own and some of them was really useful and interesting for me.

We are the same. I find it hard to create a quality discussion. Maybe because I always feel lazy or I am just really lacking of good ideas. But at least I am able to give quality responses to every discussion and I see to it that I find some time to ccomment back when I receive a comment on the discussions I have responded. Thank you.

Having less people to respond to my discussion makes me think all the time aside from not having good ideas to think. Sad to know sometimes do not respond to my discussion.

Hi. I do the same too. I respond to others' discussions more than I start one. I start a discussion only when I have a point to make or really would like to share something with all of you. Never just for the sake of starting a discussion. And I seriously don't know how people can keep starting a number of discussions day after day. I would definitely run out of topics.

I am the same way too, I'd rather respond to discussions then create my own. I most of the time I can't think of anything to discuss, so I just look for other discussions that I can respond to. The only time I will create a discussion is when something has happened or I have a interesting topic to discuss I will create one. I know though that sometimes it is very hard to come up with topics though. I admire all those people who can come up with so many topics though.

It depends. Sometime I like readying other people's discussion to share with them, but sometimes I like starting a new discussion.

I like to start my own and it gets tiring after while. So,I have cut back and started responding more to others. I am making less money and it is not cute. But,the time it saves me posting back and forth is great.

I enjoy responding to discussions, in fact for a very long tome, I have been post discussions, but simply responding to them!
