i have heard so many new ones saying they cannot find good topics. well I just responded to one about sp; ending her time in the kitchen cooking. It runs four pages so see there are a lot of topics that we all are interested in and anything to do with food and eating sure draws attention. your take fellow mylotters

Discussions about food are one of my standby's!! LOL But, I have to admit that when I was trying to do a lot of discussion posts during the quadruple earning bonus, I was having a hard time thinking of different things. I didn't want my topic to be horribly boring, although i know one of them was for sure - no one has responded.

hi jerzgirl look some of the discussions with no or just one or two responses are because for awhile yesterday and the day before a glitch was not letting us post to them at all. they took my response and d umped it and returned me back to the discussion again. so it could be that glitch affected your discussion too. I was shocked, lamb had one I wanted to respond to and it would not take my response at all. so it might not be that your discussion is boring at all but that something is not letting us post responses to it.

I had that problem for a while, but then I started getting responses on the more recent discussions and being able to respond as well. I went back to the ones I had wanted to respond to earlier and posted my responses at last. But, I have about six discussions that were earlier in the problem that no one has commented on and we're not allowed to bring attention to them. Of course, they may say I'm doing this, but that isn't why i'm bringing it up. It's just that they were affected most likely by the problem and then got lost down the list as time went on.

hi it was so odd when I first started being able to post my responses some discussions had only three and those I could not get my responses posted to. one was lamb and usually he gets umpteen responses.yes I know about not calling attention but could be they also were caught in that glitch. hope so and now people can respond.

I'll say. cause who dont love to eat? well maybe a few. my problem is, i love to eat but hate to cook so i go sometimes for the what to eat ones except sometimes its just a question like do you like to eat this or that and im always afraid those will get deleted. but i reply to the good ones yes those are great topics. i come up with a lot of questions. only thing is, i have to get back to respond to my responders. and i dont want to bite off more then i can chew i always feel obligated to respond. you know what i mean?

hi bunnybon and ravi oh i am so glad I can again get responses and comments to post. I also steer away from those questions asking do you like to eat this or that as they are poll discussions and I finally learned to avoid them like the plague. this one was a good one and a lot of us responded to it too; Me I amn so happy and why because I had a different care taker padding out desserts and I got a dish of real cherry ice cream,not the usual sugar free fat free taste free diabetic ice c ream. lol lol oNce in a great awhile I can eat some real ice cream and not screw up my blood glucose. congrats on being first Bunnybon. lol lol

I love to eat and so talking about food is a favorite subject. I was brought up on meat and potatos. We ate good. Yes, I think this subject is a good to get attention to your discussions. And about children, life and unjustice,etc. Young people today just don't have much of an imagination.

Food is a very complex topic and who does`nt love food anyway !! We may have different styles in the kitchen and love of different flavors depending on people but it all end up in that topic: FOOD One of my family bonding is eating and it is more fun when you are with your family. We talked about a lot of stuffs when we are eating and it makes us happy even if there`s been a long day outside. Like despite the tiring and long day, you can still relax and spend time with your family while eating

hi se7enthbird yes it is and gives us plenty of scope.some of my fondest mermories are holidays when I c ooked and my p arents came to my house to eat and my mom cooked and we and the two kids went to their house.still have those good memories although my parents and younger sister are all deceased now.

its really nice to reminisce those days. People think that eating its just a normal routine to do. What they don`t know is that they can do it extraordinary each day. I guess you just need to appreciate the people and the bond that happens during eating time. In our tradition, eating together is really a must. Though there are people that does`nt want to speak during eating time, its more like their respect in what they are doing

Yes there are lots of topics but how to start a new discussion is another thing. For me, I seldom start a discussion too because I could not think of how to start. I envied those who have started so many discussions.

pahak you are right. A few members are able to raise N number of topics. Whereas a few like us struggle to get a new one. Again it depends on creativity, thinking and willingness to share and learn. good day.

hi pakah and ravusuvab a hint instead of saying what do you think about blah blah as your title,just show yourself thinking about something'then going on to explain in your discussion and ask "mylotters, whats your take?" I have never had a discussion deleted when I take this approach. just do not start withna question asking everyone in the world what do you think about such and such? those always get deleted.As I first came here I wrote several sad discussions asking why I did not get responses and the lady who helped me explained that i was the new kid on the block so I shou ld respond a lot then they will remember my u ser name and respnd to my discussions too. it did work.also start with the title it must not raise a question like a poll so reword your topic so it makes a discussion instead.

I'm certain that there are still plenty of topics that are in mylot that are appealing to many different people. Well, I've been starting more discussions than I had been starting in the past because I'm spending more time on here than I was in the past few months. Though I do find that most of the discussions that I've been starting are not huge responders, there are some that are pretty popular in my opinion.

hi dorannmwin do not feel bad if some do not seem to get responses as I have still found several recent discussions where I wrote a response and hit post response and it brought me back to the discussion but my response had not posted., this person had only one response yet I know she generally gets many more.I think mylot still has a few scattered glitches.you always write great discussions and I do really try to respond too.

Hi Hatley, certainly food and cooking is good topics for discussion. Eating is easy matter. All like to eat delicious food. But cooking is hard task. It is also an art. I can listen about cooking,but can't participate.

hi bhanusb yes they really are as all of us love to eat and some of us love to cook too. Yes cooking is an art. My husband loved to cook and he made the best beef stew I have ever tasted, He browned he meat first and that gave it more flavor too.You should try to learn a few simple things though just to say I know how to cook this. lol loll

When I have an idea for a discussion I usually start one. I have alot of great topic ideas! My life is full of discussions topics! Some allready have become discussions! If I don't feel like responding to discussions I post photos or reply to discussions I started! There are good topics here! Sometimes you just have to look alittle harder!

I am very interested in cooking and therefore I also enjoy eating. I think I have posted some discussions about it already. In fact I also have my DIY booking blog in Chinese. Whenever my friends ask me how to cook something, I will tell them to visit my blog directly:) I love China

I think you are right. We all enjoy good tasting food. We can also make a discussion about food without posting recipes, and it is well within the guidelines. We just need to word things correctly. I think that must have been a refreshing discussion to participate in.

yes she is a college girl and told abou t how she did all the cooking for her mom on her vacation from college, she really did get the responses as she did not complain but really seemed to enjoy having cooked for her mom. her mom was busy in some sort of office work at home on the computer. my son used to do that for awhile work at home for this company;

Hi Hatley. you are correct. If someone can not find something of interest to respond to, perhaps that reflects more in the state of mind that mylotter may be in. I speak from experience as i struggle sometimes but that is not a reflection on the standard of mylot, more it says more about my enthusiasm or tiredness. I do have to mention how impressed i am with your mylot tally. (currently 51276) You are truely mylots greatest member and something of a national treasure.

hi ajk thanks for the compliment yes 51276 as I am trying to take advantage today of the quadruple earnings and taking care to stay within the rules too. I noticed the othed day I lost 5 resp;onses as he discussions were deleted so guess I was not careful as I thought I was being. lol. I think a lot of newbies just scare themselves trying to think of a good topic when if they just looked in their own lives would find all sorts of topics.

There's always something to discuss here . . . everyone just has to dig around! Seems there are a lot of "foodies" here on myLot . . . me included . . . and food discussions (especially the eating ones) make my mouth water! I love the cooking ones too, but I think more people like to eat more than cook. I actually haven't visited those sections in a while - so thanks for the reminder, Hatley!!

I am a diabetic and have to figure out all the time what is healthy for me to eat and what will not shoot u p my blood sugar.so in my discussions on food it will show how I feel about certain foods that are bad for all of us. if we were all alike in our responses it wou ld be a very boring world, suni

Hatley aunty: yes. All of us will be interested in eating their favourite dish. Some of us like vegetarian and some of us like non vegetarian food very much. There are some who like sweets and ice creams very much --includes myself. There are others who like savouries -- pizza etc. But interested in cooking -- you will have a lot of them from among women. But the best cooks are men. This is is told in Tamil old literature. that way nowadays this will hold true. aunty---

ravi you know I do believe the best cooks are men.myhusband loved to cook.While he was recuperating from colon cancer surgery I had to go to work full time so when I would get home he had the best dinners fixed for me.I loved his beef stew, I could make it good bu t his was even better. He loved cooking and did cook for a living for quite awhile. He would get really upset because at the time we were living in Tempe Arizona and he would walk in to the kitchen where he was to cook and find rancid oil and dirt everywhere and cockroaches too.he reported several to the dept of health and they did close them down at once. people eating were told the restaurant was closing and their money would be refunded.'after all if the kitchen is dirty and full of roaches the food could make people ill.

Hi there sweet little Hatley, I think food and cooking would be the easiest to get responses because we all do this, lol! No matter where you live in the world, you're going to eat and you need food to do it, so we can all relate to it. I prefer responding to discussions rather than starting them...but once in a while I surprise people, haha.

hi kashmeresmycat long time no see. yes we all have to eat and a lot of us, not me now, have to cook it too. everyone can relate to a subject like that. I also do a lot more responding than making discussions as I have to comment back to all responses as I feel its rude to do otherwise. I remember responding to some of your discussions and they were always fun to respond to too.

You know til you get a good feel for this site, perhaps responding is a better way to go about getting some earnings here. As you said many topics we all have delt with in one manner or another. I know it's hard sometimes thinking of discussions, some people just do blurbs about their daily life and what's interesting. Others go with things they are familiar with as you mentioned Ms Hatley that we all eat and must know something about that and cooking to get the ball rolling.

Everyone eats so everyone can put in some response on a discussion about food. But cooking is not everyones cup of tea. Not everyone could like cooking. I cook because I have to and not because I love cooking. I am a good cook but not fond of cooking as such. But do have some input to put in on discussions about food and cooking.
