Not Posting Any Discussion in Mylot is Fun!

I am by nature not a prolific writer. It takes me a while to come up with a "discussion" to post in mylot. Today I have a lot of free time and instead of using it to produce a "well-thought out and researched post", I decided to take the road less traveled (for me) and just read and comment on the postings of other members. Conclusion? This is fun! Kermit the frog in a winter wonderland frolic (I live in the Philippines, no snow) expresses how I feel. Now that I've posted this discussion, I'm technically incorrect Image: Pixabay

It is nice sometimes to not have to write anything and just go around reading and commenting on other peoples shared posts and relax. I do a little digging for information when I am writing about a topic and I don't know much about it and it is a bit of work and it doesn't always pay off the way you would like it to. On a personal note I personally think that informal posts are sometimes more fun to read instead of post that are of a more serious nature.

@OKennedy _ Having written on other sites, it takes some getting use to the mylot format. I have to keep reminding myself this is a "discussion" site and not a writing site. I have to agree with you that an impromptu written post have it's own charm, mainly by it's spontaneity

For people who live in the tropics where we experience two seasons (the dry and wet seasons) The snowy winter has it's allure.

@josie_ I can imagine this. We had no snow at all the past winter and it was very unusual.

I don't like to 'spread myself too thin' either. I'd sooner not post anything than try to rack my brains for something just for the sake of it. Posting 2 or 3 times a week is anough for me. Like you, I love the responding and commenting.

@jaboUK _It's fun and definitely easier to comment on the posts of others. Fit's in nicely with my daily chores. I also must restrain myself from writing overly long "discussions".

That is why Mylot is better because all those other sites go by what you as an individual do not the contributions you make to other people. Only if the rest of the world worked like that. Also a concept many people on here have yet to grasp.

This is not a site where you're rewarded with a lot of money if you fire off one post after the other. So all's well.

I have been doing that for ages! I hardly post my own discussion coz i just enjoy jumping from one discussion to another of others and just interact with them. I don't post because I find it difficult. I could post and post a discussion if i wish to, but I just don't want to post for the heck of posting.
