This was inspired by another members post.

I was reading a post by another member a few minutes ago where @infatuatedbby stated how she had stopped enjoying myLot as much as she used to, and that got me thinking about the way I tackle responding to things, and finding new things to comment on. I don't know if I tackle them a certain way. If you followed how I do myLot it might make you a little crazy. I jump around a lot, spend time with certain members reading several of their posts back to back to back, or I go through my notifications. I don't have a set way of how I do myLot everyday. I try to get back to the bulk of my notifications, and I know that I have times where I don't get to them, for that I am sorry. It isn't intentional. But another thing that Michelle said in her post was that her time here wasn't about making other people happy. And for the most part that is true for my time here as well. Do I love interacting with people? YES! Do I love that I have made friends here, and look forward to seeing how they are doing during the day, and congratulate them when good things happen, and grieve with them when bad things do, YES. But that doesn't mean that I am going to put a heavy filter on what I wrtie when I write my thoughts down. I know not everyone is going to agree with me on the way I view things, or the things I believe in- and that's okay. This post in kinda garbled, but it just felt like something I wanted to say, and like I said i was inspired to write it after reading another post.

Yes we all do things a little differently here on mylot and that is ok, most important is to enjoy our time here and not treat it like a job, as soon as it isn't fun it's not worth it...

Very true. We all have our likes and dislikes. We have our own opinions. Shouldnt change to please others.

It's interesting to read how people tackle notifications! And how they myLot, glad you got the inspiration to write your views too! And, I don't mind if people don't filter what they write. I'm happy to read , but for me if a member constantly asks about my personal life it gets annoying when I clearly do not want to answer- time of deal. I want my happiness as well too! But I can't please everyone either. I hope that make sense!

@infatuatedbby Since my notifications page only loads sometimes, something about when my internet gets slow messes with it and it just won't load. So most of the time I have to go back to each of my posts to check to see who has responded and respond back and then I have to keep track of what posts i have written comments on so that i can respond. I did get a break today when for some reason for two hours i was acutally able to check notifications, but i only got through about 45. lol.

@thislittlepennyearns Yes, I sometimes see double from you, but that is okay! It must be your internet connection.

@infatuatedbby yeah, my internet connection can be iffy sometimes, but that's the downside of living in the country and having to rely on my hotspot.

I don´t have time to read a lot of posts and I can´t answer all my notifications either. So I usually interact more with the people I feel nearer to me.

@Lupita234 This is true for me too. I have an offline life with friends and family. This is very important for me.

@thislittlepennyearns I feel the same. Just as I don´t invite everyone I meet at party, I use my time with my friends here more than with people I don´t know, unless I read a very interesting post written by them.

As soon as I login the first thing I attend to are my notifications. I pay attention to every single one of them. The I go to resp;ond to discussions as many as I possibly can. Finally I post my discussions. Whatever happens in this activity is my destiny. I win sometimes and I lose sometimes. It's all in the game.

@allknowing , either theres more hours in the day there or you dont do anything but answer notification. There is no possible way to get to every single notification all the time. There just isnt

@thislittlepennyearns You are right about that. Today for example I was working on my postloop account where one has to hurry to post. I have come here only now.

@thislittlepennyearns The majority of what I watch are real movies contrary to popular belief.

I guess everybody responds the way they want to.If I am away I too like to check out friend's posts and answer them back to back

I agree with you. Everyone has their best of doing my lot. Yesterday I cleared most of my notifications, it's not the same everyday. Sometimes I concentrate more on reading, while some other times it's more commenting. It's not the same, depends on mood,or how is feel at that time.
