Many posts are written discouraging writing many posts in a day. I wanted to know how those who post many posts in a day fare here.I observed two users. One posted 10 and the other 16. Both announced that they earned over a dollar in a day. My question is why should one be discouraged when those who write many posts are doing well in terms of earnings.

I personally like to respond better than posting my own discussions, however we do have to have new discussions to discuss.

We have choices. Pick what best suits you. With this approach how do you fare with your earnings. As I definitely know interactions on our posts earn more for us.

I agree also, but if someone posts several times an hour and the posts aren't generating interaction, they writer may want to rethink their strategy. As I mentioned elsewhere, too many posts in too short a time start to look spammy. (Spammish?)

I would say the general problem is that a large number of posts in a day (and this is based on research I have carried out) leads to diminishing readership. My findings assume proper spelling and grammar are used. The first post performs well but subsequent items have a reduced readership with the last having very few readers. Now MyLot is not a writing site so it may be possible to achieve that, but I achieved a daily $1 increase twice, the first time as a result of one discussion, the second time without any post, but by being involved in conversation.

By being involved in a conversation and getting a dollar or more is a rare achievement. I have never ever reached there when I just responded and commented. We are not talking of rare cases here (lol) Each of us are differently visible here and so writing many posts at different times could generate earnings as has been proved Writing many posts within the hour could perhaps not do that. But to each their own. As long as there is no violation, why criticise?

I've found my best earning days follow a similar pattern to @pgiblett. One or two widely spaced posts and responding to others posts while engaging in a running dialog where possible tend to generate better gains.

@DWDavis As I said there are exceptions and you two and a few others who follow this pattern are exceptions. How many here get 50 and 60 responses on a post - not many and for those who get less posts they need to post more despite responding and commenting on others' posts. It has all to do with visibility.

i figure folks ought to do whate'er floats their boat. if'n they wanna write lots'f schtuff, so be it. they ought not get offended though when others don't read all they've written. there jest aint 'nough hours'n the day to pass oneself 'round readin' it all. 'n frankly, my 'xperience's been that those who write so much usually've lil to say that evokes a response.

If they say no one responds then they should be told and not the whole community. But there are many here who write meaningful many posts and my research tells me that they earn good.

I remember trying a fair number of posts in one day, although it is quite some years ago now. It was a day that I was on holiday and had very little to do, so I tried it for curiosity. Naturally the amount of activity for each post was lower than usual, but the total was far higher. It would seem that posting about 6 or so does pay, although I prefer not to bother doing that myself.

As I have said elsewhere here very few get 50 or more responses and it is known that interaction on posts generate earnings more than just responding and commenting on others' posts. It therefore becomes necessary to post in order to earn and also many of us enjoy interaction and therefore invite a wider audience by posting on different topics. Also there is a false belief that only quality posts get good responses. Who decides about quality here? I have seen some silly posts according to me, garnering more than 60 responses

@allknowing I know a few members here who post about 5 or 6 a day, which I consider to be quite reasonable. Personally I probably average one a day with the occasional 2 in a day, but that is just personal preference. My average responses recently are around 11 or 12 per discussion, but the earnings are not important to me so that is sufficient.

@Asylum I would certainly like my bank to show that my efforts here have been successful. It is a nice feeling although I have said this several times what I earn here is far less than what I spend to earn that (lol) That is proof therefore that I care for interaction more than what I earn here.

I don't know. It can get a little annoying when someone posts multiple discussions but it's not really for me to say they shouldn't do so.

@lexiconlover When followers decide to follow but stay away then it becomes necessarfy to write more posts so that those few diligent followers get to respond to your posts. Also there are followers with different interests and writing many posts caters to their needs. As long as rules are not broken there is no need for anyone to ciriticise. If they have anything to say they should address the user concerned.

There's no limit on the number of posts one is allowed to make in a day, of course, but, since MyLot is a discussion site, there is a practical limit to the number of discussions a person can maintain by commenting on the responses and comments received. People who merely post topic after topic and never or rarely come back to read and comment on the responses are abusing the system and are very unlikely to be posting topics which have any value, anyway.

If a system is abused then that user will be banned and Admin will take care of that - just saying. Not many anyway come under that category I am talking about those who post many and are doing well here. My contention is users should be tackled at an individual level and not generalised .Also not many posts generate 50 and 60 responses and that is a very small group. Interacting in a post generates earnings as has been pointed out by many here and therefore those who do not reach that level of 50 or 60 responses need to post more articles.

Who decides what is quality. What ticks is your followers who diligently come to your posts whether there is quality or not. When you have few diligent followers the need arises to write more mosts in order to earn. There was a post that said they were feeling miserable apparently suffering from a cold and that post generates countless responses. Do you call that a quality post? If those who write many posts earn well that's all that matters as long as they do not break rules.

I do not think those who write a post every hour or so are being discouraged. Rather, it is those who post several times in an hour, one post after the other, so that readers don't have time respond to one post before being hit with a flurry of the others.

I have not seen posts that are written within the hour and even if they are written as long as they do not break rules why should they be criticised?

@allknowing I believe the criticism is meant constructively. I have noticed the folks who post several times an hour are usually new (newer than me anyway) and will post laments about why no one is responding to their posts. No one is responding because posting every five or ten minutes can seem too much like spam so other users tend to ignore them.

That is precisely the point. Some need many posts and some do not. Those who post many posts also earn well. That is their style. There are a whole lot of factors that go into some posts being given attention regardless of what the topics are. One needs to accept it and move on and do what is best to get that attention leading to earnings.

@LadyDuck You interact a lot and that kind of interaction is not possible for many but those who write many posts get their earnings that way. There are ways in which we can earn here. As long as there are no rules broken it matters little how one earns, Even if you do not post there is passive income on posts written earlier.

I agree I really don't care what others do. I don't have time to be that active here at mylot. If they do then good for them! Thats nice for them to bring in a little extra money each month here at mylot. I am happy for them that they found a way to enjoy mylot and earn money. I personally just couldn't come up with that many things to write about in a day lol.

When posts are written criticising those that write many posts it kind of deters them which is not right.

@allknowing agreed. If we don't like that someone else writes a lot of posts all we have to do is skip past them and find someone else's to comment on. I look at the titles and see if there is anything that I could think of to add as a response. Last night I got a lot of comments on my posts from @ricki_911. If someone comments on my posts I try to take the time to read and comment on an equal number of their posts. So last night I read a lot of her posts. It kept me entertained while I was bored since she had posted so many news ones.

@shaggin There are a few here who get good responses and so they need not put up many posts but those who post many articles also earn as much. We should respect that.

There are different situations here that individuals have to deal with and by writing many posts if they feel they can face those situations why discourage them?

I think it is up to each individual as to how often they post. As long as they break no rules no one should criticise them. If someone does post a lot I may read one or two, but no more.

There has been criticism when users write many posts. When there are not many diligent followers it becomes necessary to write many posts. If those who do that and earn well that's all that matters. Their few diligent followers can pick and choose the topics on which they write.

Its not about me but I was talking about those who believe in writing good posts and earning that way as very rarely do many here get responses to their posts in numbers as large as 50 or 60 may be even more. They are right in posting many and that way they earn good.
