Are You A Good Host or Hostess?

Posting a discussion in myLot doesn't end there. It is merely the beginning of a potential social interaction. I say potential social interaction. Why? When we post something many possible things could happen: 1. A person may skip or not even read our post/discussion; 2. A person may like it; 3. A person may not only like it but comment on it; 4. A person may comment on the comment to your post/discussion In any of the instances in Nos. 2,3, and 4 social "interaction" within your post/discussion takes place. So, when we post/discuss something in myLot , our post/discussion is like our own home and opening it to everybody; and everyone who like, comment, comment to the comment etc. is like our guest and we treated them like our own most welcome guest... When we have a guest in our home we always prepared ourselves to be a host or hostess... we see to it that everyone is relax, comfortable and of good cheers... we don't make our guest feel themselves like an intruder... we makes our home guest-friendly...et cetera. And the same is true with regards to our post/discussion... Do you consider your post/discussion as an open home to everyone in myLot? Do you consider anyone liking, commenting, and commenting to the comment in your post/discussion a very welcome guest? Are you a good host or hostess with all your guest in your post/discussion? Thank you so much for reading this post/discussion and my home is all open to you...Welcome and Thanks again and I hope I could be a good host to you...

I try my best to respond to all comments, and interact and visit those who visit me and not insult them. But I must say 90% of those I visit for the first time do not visit me, of course I never visit them again because obviously I am not welcome

@Freelanzer Thanks for your comment my friend which is truly based on your personal experience. I can't really comprehend why some people don't want to "interact" with others. Well, that's his or her choice I guess. I'll see you later my friend.

I used to love being a good hostess when I had friends over to my house for dinner and drinks..that was long ago. Now I have my Lot and interact with every single person that comes to my house. Yes you are an excellent and kind and welcoming host Peter.

@GardenGerty You are right my friend. myLot is the best place were you could meet good virtual friend. It may not be perfect but there's no substitute for it. All I can say is that myLot as I've said before is the "real thing in the virtual world!"

I don't know about hosting a site and the guidelinea to what is needed to be done. One thing I know, Asians are hospitable.

@Neittarquin Yes you are right my friend for every culture there's always the thing or concept of hospitality although each culture may be doing it in a different way of showing its own brand of hospitality.

I try as much as I can to be the best version of myself. I really like to communicate, to find out the others' opinions (both if they are the same or not as mine), to make new friends and learn something new every day. I really like to believe that I am a good hostess, but this is a conclusion of myself and the best one should be given by the readers of my posts.

Seriously, I dunno, my friend! It would be better if you tell me if I'm a good hostess or not. And by the way you're never a guest to my discussions, you're already part of the family...

When I start a post, I expect my friends here to read and respond. When they respond I make sure that I post my comments on their responses. I love to interact and carry along the conversation with my friends, as far as possible. My friends could better tell whether I am a good host for them.

@mandala100 yes, but when the response of a comment is already answerable with an emoji depicting approval, then, i think it is already time to jump on to the next discussions.

Peter, what I want to say is that I really truly loved your post. I found it to be very very interesting and a great topic and great explanation. I have found that there are people here on My Lot that do go out of their way to welcome one here and help them in any way they can. I try to be a decent person and decent host. I think in my home I try to make the person feel at home here as best I can. I may forget my manners and other times I feel i more that make up for it by offering them something to drink and making sure if they are allergic to my cat that she does not come into the room where we are working. I feel bad leaving her out and know this is her home too, but, I also have to consider the person that comes here too. I try my best.
