Struggling To Find Quality Posts To Comment On

Looking over my earning over the past week or so to find there quite a few days i earned $0.01 for a few days... Those were the days i had no ideas on what to posts after searching for inspirations and even looking through friends posts of that day... Nothing jumped out at me that i could comment properly on and not just put "oh, OK" or somthing meaningless and short... I enjoy being able to post something with meaning that gives the discussion something to think about and maybe inspire them to write a new discussion from that comment... I have had quite a few like that myself. How do you get your earnings up when you are not inspired?? Do you find your friends don't always post quality discussions you can comment on? Ever search for inspiration??

For me, there is never a shortage of topics to respond to. I do have trouble thinking of new ones to start. I just don't have time to scan through the millions previously posted to see if my idea is original enough or not and I worry too much about having it deleted for repetition.

I don't depend on the discussions to spur ideas for me to start a discussion - I depend more on what ever is happening in my life at the moment. Of course, then I think the same is happening to many others on Mylot and a similar discussion started...and that's where I end up worried about repetition...lol.

I know what you mean i feel like the last few days i havent been able to find anything really interesting. but i am sure soon i will i always do. Hope you find your inspiration soon, usually mine comes from what i been doing.

Sometimes its not the earning you need to concentrate on. If you do, it will be too much of a chore and when you get uninspired, you will give up quicker... Its too fun to just concentrate on the earnings and try to relax more into things... Then the imagination may be able to flow more. I have found myself not even being bothered to come on here at times when all i want to do is post something rather than nothing! But i wont force myself as i dont want to put myself off coming back on here for good

Well, actually, I think just like you. That is, there are days where it's really hard for me to find a discussion of where write a review of quality! Also I've spent days, virtually unable to work, finding within me the inspiration tailored to comment threads available at the time. When the situation is so, in theory, the inspiration should come from within me and write a discussion of quality. But I can not always do there.

Thanx dear for your comment... Many here probably find the same problem with inspiration. Its just a case of something capturing you enough to spur you to post or comment n.

Rite17 welcome to mylot. Respond for topics related to your field of interest -- studies, family, job, earning, health, tour, pets, cricket, tennis etc. if possible post in your friends discussions. On the top you will find buttons "hot", "no responses" "new user" etc. take them and answer and increase your number of friends to encourage you. good day.

Thank you for your input.. I have often added new friends to find they are either inactive or post so much that it clogs my newsfeed and i cannot comment on other friends posts.. Half the time thye post lots of things that has nothing to grab me to comment on. Tey seem to postfor the sake of it and so won't gain comments or earn much from all the meaningless effort. I have found that quality posts and comments helps more. In the past week i have earned more than i thought i could do in a month on here.. All because of the posts and comments also using the search on here too

There are over two and a half million discussions posted here since myLot started and even though many have been removed, there are still many available. We can post on old and/or new topics and will still earn if our particpation is worthwhile and personally I have never ever had problems finding topics to participate in. My problem is the opposite: not enough time to be able to participate in as many as I can find.

Thanks for your input maybe i just tire quickly hence why i tend to leave for a few months and then am back again.. I have short attention span and if i don't have anything meaningful to say, i won't say anything at all...
