Or else how on earth I would be writing some thing in mylot. there are times that no matter what I do think of something i always end up cancelling it, fearing it might be another similar topic which i've made already. I also remembered one long topic that I've made few months back. It was a long one, only to get deleted because i made something similar six months before i made that topic. I was like PHEW! really? this is why no matter how Jai-sis invites me to do blogging to the next level i just couldn't bring myself to do it, sorry my friend hahahaha. Have a nice day.

Oh I know this very much. I am trying to write a book and I have had such an episode of writers block that I cant even so much as make a sentence for it!!! Its frusterating and I plan on getting out of this writers block as soon as school starts. I like to go to the coffee shop and respond to mylot and do surveys.

Hello Ladygator, wow making a blog is already hard as it is but you're trying to make a book unbelievable. I don't think i can even make a chapter unless i get my own reference to spice up with my imagination, writer's block is something that I've been having lately too. Have a nice day.

I think that blogs are hard because I dont know what to say! I already have a lot of the pages written and there are two books. One is fiction and the other one is about mental disorders and creating a positive life.

Hello Visavis, the problem is am not in the mood all the time to use it. so, maybe in most case the search button is obviously useless to me lolz =P The issue of the blogging thing has something to do with ME and not the blogging in general. if you have read it, I was merely stating my writer's block problem more often that i couldn't afford to take jai sis's offer.

So true, I too, having a hard time creating a new topic. I even have this "long story I wanted to share about Dejavu" but on second thought. I should not do it cuz it might get deleted as for my very 1st topic (LOL). Team says it was a type of poll discussion. So what I did is used the "search" button and Ta-dah! Saw few topics with the same, so I just replied on it and shared mine C:

Hello Vanessa, maybe you have other hobbies besides this one? don't worry you have plenty of time here. well, you can just respond to those topics instead of just making a new one. it's not easy to make a new one when you already know that such topic is already made if you see it in the search bar. good luck here, remember to read the guidelines. have a nice day.

Thank you for reminding me Letran. Yes, I always play online RPG games whenever I'm off from work. And when I get bored I go to mylot to respond and if I'm lucky to think of something to discuss then I make a new one :D So far, I'm enjoying my stay here at myLot. Happy mylotting everyone!

I'm pretty new at this and haven't had time to write a lot. But I have that problem at other sites where I write. I have to check over everything to make sure I haven't written the same thing before. Sometimes things seem to all sound the same when I go to write them. Even if it is something completely different.
• Philippines

Hello Irdl3535, that's the problem with blogging sites, they are pretty sensitive to these things. Writing Unique is something rare now a days specially if the person prefers to talk about his or her life. others tend to create topics starting romantic or the usual inspiration quotes before actually putting their own story. have a nice day.

I just like to share my life and also I want to enjoy writing. But I have experienced not posting what i have made already as I was reluctant for some reasons. It's also important for me to make unique discussions as well.

Hello Hotsummer, There are actually some experiences in our lifes that really doesn't need to share to the public. I mean, what happens if that person knows you off line and then use the information here in mylot against you. Like you, there are moments where I am reluctant to say anything.have a nice day.

If you write about stuff going on around you it will be hard to repeat a topic. like something you saw at the supermarket or an accident you saw going for a drive. life....

Hello GiftsandBagcom, Oh accident rarely happens here, except one time when a lady got hit by a car as she tried to cross the road. the pedicab driver quickly halts the car and called the traffic officer. unfortunately, they were no escape to that driver who actually didn't have any license. Have a nice day.

Hi to tell you the truth, I have not started any discussions in the last 4 days I guess because I don't have a topic to start of with. I am blank and like the mind is not working at all but I keep responding so that at least i earn something and learn at the same time. thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.
• Philippines
25 Aug 12
Hello Riyauro, It's normal to have writer's block, maybe i should have added this in my discussion so that i wouldn't be accused of being ignorant of not using the search bar hahaha =P. well, am sure you're having the same problem as I do, i hope things will go well for you my friend. have a nice day.

Maybe you have posted a lot so you forgot about them already. Just try to use the search bar first before posting your discussion. I sometimes encounter difficulty in thinking of a new discussion. I just browse over my interests then something will get my attention, I'll starting writing about it. Happy mylotting.

Hello AngelKarah, Not that much compare to other people. there was one moment last year where I posted more than ten discussions, took me weeks before I was able to respond to them all. Also hard to think of the new topic out of choosing the rout of interest. Have a nice day.
• Philippines

Everything seems blank eh? Maybe just resort to responding to discussions while you are in such kind of situations. I end up getting a blank idea for posting so I always roam around different discussions to gather some ideas. But oh well, with all the discussions coming in, it is quite hard to think of something more catchy and attractive. It is like discussions in myLot are in fierce competition too!

Hello AgentGulaman, I don't know how it has come to this. but there is no problem with having a writer's block since am not a machine that can truly think fast. sometimes i have my moods when i don't think much about the topic written or the discussion that i want to share. i never thought of it as fierce competition or i would have lost already. have a nice day.

There is a time for everything...work....rest. I think in your case is NOT that it is hard to think, but that you are thinking too hard. Go easy on yourself. Take a break, have a KITKAT!

Hello tiffnkeat, How come i never thought o that before? maybe i should take menthos too =P I have been easy on myself but my attention is not that full on mylot. anyways, don't worry i will try to be more active in the coming days ahead, its not easy when you have done this in a while and then all of a sudden you were worn out of thinking so much. have a nice day.

hi LK, Well you know me when it comes to mylot I don't force myself but if I am in the mood I got lot of topic to offer . Maybe you just need to be inspired again happy mylotting

Hello Bhabycatch013, I am so glad my friend that you have become active lately here in our online community. don't know what happened, usually it takes an hour long to make so many post but probably my mind isn't really in mylot when am not that interested as it was before. happy mylotting too and am glad you're a bit back here. have a nice day.

Hi Lk I never thought about discussion getting deleted. I know, if I have time to respond back and interact the day I start a discussion, I would go for one. During the small time I have been here, I have a few removed no doubt but then, the interactions are what I am looking for and I get a good bunch of them enough to make my day As for blogging, ah I am the laziest still and havent cared to even take care of my personal website... maybe after a while when I am a little healthier... (there I go again)

i get that feeling to Letran.. thats why i would rather just talk about whats happening with my life and my family..so there would be no topic with the same stuff in it.
• Philippines
24 Aug 12
Hello Jazel_Juan, I didn't want to talk about much of my life lately because I know it's not really that spontanous. but I do talk about things that are usual, it's good if it's unusual. well, there seemed to be good of happening a lot of good things in life for me. i'd probably have to avoid talking the sensitive and boring stuff. have a nice day.

That's the downside of being an active member of mylot for years. Why don't you follow Jai's advice? If you find time to finally think and got a brilliant idea, you should go for it.
• Philippines
24 Aug 12
Hello TOniganzon, Yeah when I found something else that is different from this usually hobby the earning is really decreased. I should take advantage of the opportunity to keep on earning in this site because you never know something like this can exist in the internet for years. Have a nice day.

I also get this, actually I'm getting it right now lol! Sometimes I will be surprised that after a few weeks another mylotter will post a discussion of the very same kind that I did. As in literally the same, just worded differently. One time I thought of pointing it out but nah, I don't think it is nice to do that.
• Philippines
24 Aug 12
Hello Raine38, Well we do try to be unique form day to day but it can't be helped when ever we see something new for them but similar to us. it proves that we aren't so different, we tend to think the same thing on a different time. I have really been slow lately but am doing my best to make up. Have a nice day.
@SIMPLYD (74863)

That's true Letran. I feel the same way too. I am always hesitant to start a topic , because it might be similar to my past topics. I just don't have the patience to go over "my started" discussions for they are a plenty already.
• Philippines
24 Aug 12
Hello Simplyd, right now I have do other things to post to and responded to a few discussions. unfortunately i have to beat the ability to make less post. anyways, i need to be more good in posting my ideas but I realized these past few days that it's not so easy to make more post. Have a nice day.

Hi LK, You can also try using the search box for similar discussion. Me too Sis Jai encourge me to write but when I start there's nothing on my mind maybe I'm just not born writer Anyway I'm just so excited to share with you that Jai and bhaby visit me here and we had a great trip last holiday here in Zoobic Safari. I hope someday you can join us.
• Philippines
24 Aug 12
Hello Lynboobsy, oh yeah i forgot all about that though I should have use the search. unfortunately, in the past I wasn't putting much of a tags on my discussions. some of them are even odd to be link as that discussion. Yes, I have seen the picture that Bhabycatch and Jai-sis have uploaded the picture in facebook. have a nice day.

To overcome that you have to be creative. Practice as they say teaches and you may as well try that. Next, you need to broaden yopur imagination and ability to recall past events as well. Happy discussing...

Hello Toyota4k, I don't think you know me that well but i won't be having ten thousand post if I wasn't creative. but maybe I have exhausted my imagination way way too much. plus, i agree with some of my friends that i need to go out more so that there will much of a story. but thanks for your view though. Have a nice day.

hi, there are only times that i have topic to create fro my discussion but i don't post everyday because i am afraid that mylot notification surprise me again in my email that my created topic is deleted again.that is why when i create a topic i make it sure that is not the same to the other topic.
