Give And Take!

Give and take or in other words, scratch my back and I scratch yours. I joined myLot just few days ago and I am loving it! One thing that I found out here is interaction (liking, reading, and commenting) is the quick way to reach the minimum threshold of big $10.00. What I am doing now, which everyone should do, is spending more of my limited time to liking and commenting in every posts that come to my way when I start wandering around the wide lot of myLot. Of course, I see to it to read and comment in new posts of my 45 followers. They follow me; so, I have also to follow them. It is a give and take thing! By the way, there is no such thing here as "his/her post is not interesting" that is why we don't comment and like it. Come on, a post is like lady (I seldom use the word - woman - to show my inimitable respect), there is always something beautiful and interesting in every post. Just like a friendly bubbler from Indonesia; he posted a short article with the title - "How To Park A Bike!" It is not interesting as who does not know how to park a bike?! Anyone? But what I found interesting (amusing, too) is how he painstakingly explained it in English that made me deciphering while reading it! So, let us practice this "give and take" thing like in driving. You scratch my back and I scratch any part of yours including your spare parts!

Some of us women don't like the term 'lady' so take care with that one.

@vickyrose Madam signifies utmost respect for, usually, an OLD lady; while lady is more of a pretty sophisticated lady, that looks very much younger than her age!

It is quite an easy concept to comprehend, and makes total sense. So many seem to miss the mark on it though. My myself, I absolutely love the interaction.

I do love the interaction, my friend. And by the way MyLot is much, much more alive than Bubblews. It is like a ghost town over there.

@antonbunot To me the interaction is the best part, especially when you are able to make connection. Yes, I think I wrote one post there since I joined here.

@TexanTornado Since joining here I just wrote one, too, in Bubblews. It is one post wherein I keep bugging Arvind to say or write something.

I couldn't agree with you more. This site wheels turn so nicely when all it's members give and take. I like it on here and this is an excellent site for people to share anything and everything on their mind with other.

Sometimes I believe laziness not selfishness is the reason why some just take and take!

@antonbunot I might disagree with you on this one sorry. I have seen people like this and it appears to me they are self centered and only care about themselves. Even at a party they have to be the life of the party to have everyone notice them all the time. I think they have a low ego and the only way to make it feel better is to center all around them. Even when they talk the bulk of their conversations center around them and they are always talking about how great they are and how everyone loves them. This is their ego booster. I feel these kinds of people don't know how to give and take they only take.

I can't exactly agree with you that 'there is something and beautiful in every post', I don't like and comment willy-nilly. If you get a comment from me, you will have deserved it. I love genuine interaction.

I always try to see things positively. That is why I compare posts to women. All women are beautiful. There is something of beauty in every woman. Even a "good morning" post has beauty in it . . It makes our morning good!

@antonbunot Nope, can't agree. I am a really positive person, but also a realist. All women are not beautiful, nor men for that matter, and all posts are not interesting

The beauty of these sites is all the interactions among people from all over the world. There is always something to enjoy in a post, you are right.

You hit it! I never forget when Bubblews was at its peak . . we learned so many things interacting with bubblers all over the world. What a fellow bubbler from Pakistan had for breakfast . . and what a fellow bubbler from thePhilippines doing at midnight.

I'm finding a different ambiance about myLot that makes me want to comment and write and interact a lot more. So yes, I'll scratch any back that scratches mine

So true. I too think we can learn something from each and every post, and should not be judging them. I read a short post with the word polymath , and just learned something

You are right, @freelanzer . . we learn something like new words from each and every post. I posted a provocative comment in Yahoo and one commenter wrote . . Hi, troll! Since it was my first encounter with that word, I checked Mr. Webster. . Yikes!

And it is even better to give than to take (to receive)! That is why I keep giving.

Some find it fun to take not give.. They don't seem to have understood the game too well. I love being here talking to people when i find someone on my discussions i always go over to check their discussions out. I hate the bullcrap about I am here for fun not for money.. where were these people when the site did not pay?

I know! I read and commented in a couple of posts of a fellow Myloter . . He never cared to give (back). So, I told myself . . Either he does not like my posts or he is selfish. . .
