People Actually Start 10 Discussions a Day?

Hmm.. Ok now I know most of us do not do this, and most of us could never imagine doing this in one day, but I know there are others who have or still do this, and I wonder how they ever keep up? Do they even bother to respond back to everyone who posts back to them, or do they just ignore them start another New discussion and move on never resolving them, or paying attention to them again. Personally I could never start this many, and truthfully I do not have the time as well. Just think if only 10 people respond back to each New discussion that you started. You would then have to find the time to respond back to everyone which would be over 100 responses, and then choose a Best response. I know some who just choose a Best Response without ever responding back and wonder how this ever helps anyone for sure? I know I am behind as it is, and doing my Best when I can, but I do enjoy going back in and reading what people have said and responding back when I can. I usually learn something that can often help me or relate too each time I do as well. What better way to really get to know people here than to interact. So in reality, no one is to tell you how many discussions you can start here, but if you are starting them, why not take time to interact with others back as well? Just some of my thoughts. ~~TINA~~

The only way they can do that many each day is if they either do not respond to the responses or they either do not have a job or a social life. It can take a lot of time if you read and respond to the people who post back to your discussion. Most of us, just don't have the time to start that many discussions each day.

Well, and then if you have other things in life keeping you busy besides being an active member here, it really leaves for limited time in being here. And like you said, they must not ever go respond back to everyone there, or other people's discussions and only worried about themselves which in the long run ends up hurting them as well. I can't even catch up with all my Older ones due to my busy schedule to even ever consider starting 10 more New discussions a day. Look at just how far behind I am with this one.

Hi speakeasy hi krausehome I agree with you, this kind of people doesn´t want to socialize or to matter for anybody else, than themselves. That´s not nice nor funny, nor lovable, nor virtue. I have a lot of things to do with my job, but I enjoy socializing. Even if it passed a long time, I didn´t erease mylot notification about my friend´s new discussions, because I have the faith to answer them. Blessings speakeasy and krausehome... dainy

Yes, I often wonder how a personally can start so many discussions and find time tp respond back to all of them. I know I have troubles keeping up as it is, but consider responding back to others an important part of being here.

I think a lot of members start discussion after discussion after discussion, trying to earn here on myLot. A lot of times, they do not bother commenting back to those who respond, as they are focusing on starting as many discussions as they can to earn. However, what they are not realizing is, that is not how myLot works. MyLot is a discussion site, not a 'paid-to-post' site. If you are not discussing or posting quality posts, you are not earning to your full potential! MyLot pays us to discuss and add quality content to the site. You ONLY earn for what YOU do here in myLot. I type, I earn - YOU type, YOU earn. You do NOT earn for what others do! You do NOT earn when other members respond to your discussion UNLESS you comment back to them!

Yes, if the NEW people here who start a lot of New discussions all the time just to be posting instead of interested in what others are having to say, this would be a better site for sure. I would rather start maybe 2 New discussions a week and have time to respond back to them with quality, then start 10 new discussions and never take time to ever want to Thank people for their comments as well.

I know one person who does masses of discussions but she is good to rey back to everyone. She has more time on her hands than I do for sure. I can't fault her because she keeps up.

Well, there are probably people here that wish I would catch up on a lot of my older discussions before ever starting a New discussion here, and it would be nice if I could. But from time to time I have to start a New discussion or two just to let everyone know what is going on here. So much is going on really right now, but not having time to talk.

There really is nothing wrong with starting lots of discussions. Think about it.. a cent or two for starting the discussion and then all the pennies we get for responding to our responses to our comments.. it just keeps making money. I have made several discussions in the last couple of days and I've been keeping up with them and earning great! I'll make payout in just a couple of days at the rate I'm going. I found the best way to earn is to host my own discussions.. but they have to keep the traffic up so I can respond back.. because I only get paid for what I type.

That is for sure. I just wish that I had more time to start more discussions and keep up with them. Maybe I should focus more on responding back to ones I start as well as posting back to them, and watch my earnings increase here more as well.

Actually, it is just fine. The idea here is to make the forum more interesting. By adding in more discussions, the forum will have more life into it.

Well, yes having people adding New discussions that people will want to respond back too is Good, but in the same token we need to be able to respond back to those discussions as well as others discussions here so people really know who we are, and that we will be participating with them back as well. This site is for making friends and learning about and helping others. So give and take is the key.

Hi Tina~ Hope you are feeling better. I don't have any idea how anyone can even think of 10 topics to even write about that quickly! I have enough trouble coming up with 10 a year!lol And when I do finally make a discussion I usually get a nice amount of responses and I try to respond to everyone, even though I don't have to, I want to! If I have a topic or a question I want to discuss it usually is because I want or need help with something and that means I care what others are saying. Some people do things differently. I guess that's what makes this site so diverse.

That is for sure. I know I have some here on my friends list who rarely will start a New discussion and then who start quite a few. The main concern I have if I start too many is people really interested in wanting to respond back in them as well.

Hi Tina, considering that I couldn't comment back to all the responses I have received even if there are not many as lacking of sufficient time to take care of I prefer to join in discussions which interest me most during my limited time spending here. I do my best to participate in friends who are willing to comment back to my responses It would be time I would pick post from people who I know will never like to have interaction just because the topic is quite interesting. But this wouldn't happen often Yeah, there are members here starting many discussions in a single day, like 5 to 10 or even more than that. Might be some have more interest in staring discussion to get ample responses than having interaction. I think getting great amount of responses in discussion is really a great joy writing new discussion here. If comment back to all the responses received the interesting topic would be great and leave nothing to be desired Happy posting and have a nice day!

Yes, I find myself responding back more to Friends I know who are active here, or to people that take the time to respond back in my discussions as well. I do find if you are active in others they usually will respond back in yours, and that makes it all the more interesting for sure.

Personally I can't imagine starting more then two in one sitting. I comment back to all responses as soon as they come in. I also like to further as many boxes in my discussions as I can. So it would be impossible for me. This reminds me of a couple months ago where one new member came here and thought my above response was crazy, he thought active members as me were lazy. as he said he was going to start 100 a day. Well he could not keep up with the challenge topic that he was going to start as many of the boxes were not commented to and he never came back after that. It is certainly a preference how and when members do comment back to their members, I just feel that it is courtesy to acknowledge the responders. If I did not have anything to add/comment back to my own discussion, then I would not start a discussion, as I don't feel it is right not to acknowledge, especially well thought out and helpful responses.

I hope there are not members here who think I never come and respond back to any of the discussions that I am starting. I know I am behind with such a busy life lately and trying to keep my Health and work and online/offline Business going but it is all good. I am here some today trying to catch up a little on some of my discussions I have started and wanted to post another update but know people like you understand.

In my case I have serious problems starting one discussion a week not to even talk of starting one discussion a day talk less of starting more than one a day. Sometimes for me it is hard to come up with a new topic. I may have several ideas floating in my brain but to put them together into a discussion that everyone or at least most of the people on mylot can relate to is another challenge. I really like to have discussions where there will be responses and comments to the responses and just general conversations go on. That is really what I look forward too. I am not too happy to start a discussion that people don't relate to and it ends up getting just very few responses or no responses at all. Probably some people are more talented and they can communicate better therefore they are able to start so many discussions. Well it is probably good for them but it makes me wonder how they find the time to comment back on all the responses they receive from the multiple discussions they start per day. I like to get a lot of responses to the discussions I have started but I wouldn't want to get too many at a time. I like to receive a manageable amount so I can respond to each and everyone of them.

There are many times I totally agree with you. Trying to find something New to discuss even once a week and having time to respond back to it is hard for me as well. It would be nice if it were easier, but then people would probably not take as much interest in wanting to respond back to the New ones I do start.

Well, some of the people who post that many discussions a day don't really seem to have questions in what they post. It's more like a statement on how their day went, you know? And I never know what to say when they are just reporting on the normal events of the day. But then there is another person on mylot who posts that many and I hardly ever respond because I just know they are going to have them all deleted. I have no idea how people respond back with starting that many discussions. It must be hard to keep track of. How are you feeling?

I also have trouble responding to discussions that have no questions. I guess they are like runnng into a neighbor in the street and telling what's happening in your life and waiting for the other person to make a comment. The neighbor might say, "So?" And that's sometimes what I'm tempted to say if there's not question.

These are a good way to look at it. Yes, there are more things I could talk about and share here, but for me the problem might be having enough time to be able to respond back to everyone. I am actually trying to find a better way to be able to respond back to people here in the discussions that I have been starting just to be able to keep them going more as well. As for friends who are always starting a lot of New discussions here. As long as they have time to come back in and respond to everyone, as well as keep their New discussions exciting I say that is good. Just wonder when they do this if they truly have time for other things in life as well.

I would always start 10 discussions in a day. Actually, my discussions which amounts to 9 or more sometimes, would usually be made on weekends when i am already over with all the chores at home and watching TV. Whatever interests me on TV, i would jot down. Then, i would expound on them a little later , when i am done watching. Then , i would copy and paste them at Mylot. While i am on it, there's a window open for my inbox. I can see that while i am not done yet pasting all my discussions, the inbox would keep getting plentiful. That excites me, because i know my just posted discussions ,are already being responded . After posting all my discussions, i would go to my emails and check and start answering them all. I would open other windows for Started discussions. Whew, sometimes they overwhelm me and i get to finish answering them all the next day. But the next day would again , have some more.

Wow, you must have a lot more time to spend in here than I do. There is no way I could seriously start that many discussions in here each day and respond back to all of them, and have time to respond back to my friends, etc. starting New discussions in here as well. With working full time Swing shift, and having other things always keeping me busy in life I never find enough time to get done all I would like in here.

I always go to Mylot, specially if i started a discussion. I respond to the responses as much as i can. What i cannot, i go back the next day. I have noticed that i earn so much more, whenever i started a discussion and respond back to them. But i think i come to a point where my mind has saturated all the topics that is interesting to start with.

Yes, I have thinking about doing this a little more myself, and then see what happens. Just make sure the days I start more are the days I will have time to respond back to them more as well. Right now I can think of a couple of things to talk about.. Just don't want people here thinking I will never find time to respond back to all of them I start as well.

Personally I just write 1 discussion every who knows when. When I have the time is when I start a discussion. I mostly spend my time (when I have my free time) responding to others discussions. I like helping them out as much as I can and whenever I can. I do also have lots of things I need help on that could use help but the time that I have doing other things, I forget to start a discussion.

That is so true. There are times that I really want to start a New discussion in here, and either am pushed for time, or just get too busy responding back to other discussions in here that I forget about getting a New one here started as well.

Personally it is amazing to me the people that can start New discussions of at least 10 in a day and be able to respond back to all of them in a timely manner as well. Is that all they do that day? Or do they have time to respond back to others discussions here as well? I have seen people doing a lot in here and wonder when they have time for anything else for sure.

I feel the same way. They start so many there no way they respond back to all of them and keep up on them. Some just chose their BR's and start more without even responding to the answers they get. These are supposed to be discussions. It does say in the guidelines we don't have to respond to all of them.

Well, I do try as I find time to respond back to all of mine, or most of them as I can so that people like you who are my friends can learn to trust me, and want to stay connected thru my discussions as well. I find that as little of time I have in here most days, if I were to decide to start 10 New discussions all the time people would loose Faith in me and not want to respond back anymore as well.

There are some people I just dont read anymore, because they seem more interested in quantity than quality. As for myself, I wait till I have something to say, before posting a discussion or a response.

Haha, I just started a discussion about quality over quantity in myLot recently. I definitely agree, a lot of myLotters seem to be focusing on quantity rather than quality. Quality is what myLot pays us for, and they say that it can increase our earnings.

This is so True. There are so many here who start a discussion just thinking this will help their earnings, and usually it might only be a couple of sentences and then they start another and another and never come back to respond back to them, or post back on anyone else's as well and then wonder why they never can make anything here. If they would only learn it is about Quality over Quantity this place would be a lot better for sure.

Yes i too see some newbie starting more than ten discussions daily and i see they never responding back to those discussions. As i seen that their started discussions are not also brief its simply in two lines. I simply think that their aim to start more discussions but still they dont know how to make mylot as their favorite site.

Yes, this is True. But when someone in here decides to start a lot of New discussions that are only like 2 sentences long, pretty soon everyone starts ignoring them and no one responds back to them as well. And then even if some of them are better discussions and that person never takes time to respond back it makes you wonder what their motives are here as well.

I guess those people who actually do this are those who've treated it as their work and part of their income-generating resources. I guess they enjoy it as well but maybe the downside of it is they can't always get back to what they've started. It is true that you can make money online and I guess their being creative and resourceful.

Yes, that is true. The more discussions that a person chooses to start at any one time here helps determine some of what they will make here. Finding time to respond back to the discussions that they have started takes a lot of time and effort as well. But truly I guess if they can start a lot of discussions and also respond back to them all in a timely fashion that is a Plus.

I agree that responses deserves comments from the discussion starter and that is the whole point of a discussion site I think so starting so many posts would get out of hand. I have been focussing on responding only lately because I got so behind with my notifications and I have been enjoying it because it gives me a chance to catch up with MyLotters I haven’t heard from in a while. I used to only start one or two discussions a week because it is impossible for me to keep up with more than that due to the fact that I like to reply to the responders who kindly take the time to contribute.

Yes, that is a Great reason to only start a couple of discussions in here a week unless you have time to keep on responding back to all of them as well. I know for me that is why I limit myself a lot of times even though there are many times I feel I have a lot more I really would like to share.

I didn't think it was possible to start a lot of discussions in one day, and then respond to them. There is someone on my friends list that starts around 10 a day. At first he wasn't responding to the posts and I figured it was because it would take too much time. Now he is responding back and still starting a lot of discussions everyday so I guess it wasn't the time. His discussions are usually of a high quality also. I don't know how he finds the time!
