Do you read what your friends write?

I notice that if I'm gone a day or two around here, notifications dwindle down to almost nothing. That means that I need to go around and find my friends to read what they have been posting and begin our correspondences all over again. It's a little bit of work to round everyone up again, but I care about the people here, so I try to find out what's going on in their lives. I've found some wonderful people here. And I've noticed that, if I don't go and read what they have written, I'll never hear from them. They don't come to read anything I've written. For them, this seems to be a one way street. I'm not hurt by it. I don't know them well enough to be hurt. I just find it interesting that they leave the power of our discussions up to me to initiate. It makes me wonder if they seek anyone out at all. You certainly don't have to tell me if you seek people out or not. It's none of my business. I guess this has been a way for me to "people watch" here and see what my different relationships are here. It doesn't change how much I care. That is what it is. But they can't just be here for the money, either, or they would be seeking everyone out! lol Life certainly is interesting! -Claudia-

I do try and read and comment on most of my friends here + a few more new people. But I have a lot of time on my hands as I am retired. Some people might have full or part time job and can't be here daily.

I read the discussions posted by my friends and if I am not around for one day or two, I usually go to their profile pages to see what I have missed.

That's when I have to work hardest to keep up with news if I've missed a couple of days. So much can happen in a short amount of time!

none of us can respond to everyone. there are just too many people here. but it's inspired quite a bit of conversation going and that's always a good thing!

I haven't had as much time to comment lately, as I've had in the past. I've been "hit and miss" with my interactions. Recently, I've only commented on a few of the most recent posts at the time I log onto the site. When there's more time, I enjoy participating in numerous discussions.

It's a busy time of the year between graduations and holidays and cookouts and just wanting to be out and about instead of sitting and typing. All in all, everyone here seems to be doing very well!

The thing is Claudia if we are out of sight for a while, we are out of mind. It happens to us all, no matter how active we are when we are here. I try to keep up with people, but am not always successful - there is just not enough time to read everything our friends have written.

For me, unfortunately, time is just the opposite. I have, most of the time, too much time on my hands and I can sit here for hours finding people with whom to chat. But there are names that I never see anymore because they never seem to read what I write. And I guess I miss them. But I can't always remember their names to go and find them! lol so I'll just keep searching and when I do find them, I need to add them to my follow list.

I do seek some out to comment. Some if I see their discussion under the most recent I will respond from there. Others, I go to people's profiles to see what they have commented on and I find discussions that way as well.

I do that more than anything else. I do go around to people's profiles to see what's going on lately, in case I've missed something.

An interesting observation. I know I'm not on here as much as in the winter time because my schedule is busier. I do try and go to my friends to see what their latest posts may be so that I can like and comment on them. I know I have some followers that haven't posted in awhile nor do I see them liking or commenting on posts, mine or others. One of these days I'll have to go through my list and clean it up a bit. Because following someone then not seeing them interact on a site where interaction is how you make money is a bit odd to me. Have a blessed day.

Yes, I just find it odd. I have a couple of people here who thank me for visiting their posts and seem genuinely happy to hear from me. But I've never seen them post on anything I've written. So I have no idea what they do here! lol

What I like is that both should go side by side. i always remember friendship can not be found easily. I like total friendship, pure, free, and frank.

friendship can be very hard to find in life. and once found, it should be treasured.

To be honest I hit those that are on the recent posts page. That is where I find all the people I comment to. if they are posting. I am not searching anyone out. I would be too confused for all that. it seems like I miss out on people as well. But it works for me to keep updated for the most part.

That must be what a lot of people do. I guess I've been more about keeping in touch with the people rather than keeping up with posts made by everyone.

If you're not here for a couple of days, week or longer, stands to reason you aren't interacting with other members much less written anything new. The only option is to reopen the channel of communication by seeking out their discussion/ posts.

myLot is a site where you have to work at it. If you are absent awhile, notifications will dwindle. That's the nature of the beast. But all you have to do is go down the line and start commenting.

I've had little or no contact with most of my friends since myLot began again. I do get a bit annoyed when people don't interact but there's nothing I can do about it. I lose interest every once in awhile because my earnings are so slow.
