MyLot: A discussion about old discussions
October 8, 2017 7:54am CST
Feeling nostalgic a little But actually feeling happy that my old discussions apparently haven't completely died, thanks to you awesome myLotters - seasoned and new members - who read and left your response/comments on my old discussions. I don't post too frequently compared to many members here. So when I revisited some of my old discussions recently, it kind of brought me back to certain moments - what I was doing at the time, what I was thinking (I mainly write about what crosses my mind when I feel like writing), etc. Most were good times. Do you read your older discussions? Or do you only visit them when you get likes/reponse/comment notifications?

That is one way indeed of interacting with a myLotter who doesn't have new discussions anymore. I do that in order to convey the maker of the post that she is being missed. I must confess, I felt so happy whenever some of the myLotters here would comment on my older posts because I know they haven't been around. And this happens a lot of times last week, because I barely can make a new post already because I was busy at my work and my direct selling small time business. How are you? I think, I haven't seen you around or maybe when I am here, you aren't online.
That's a great way of maintaining connections here I try to do that too, if they don't post often I would sometimes go back to their previous discussions and read them. I'm doing well, thanks! I took quite a long break from myLot mainly because of my work, but hope I can be active here again. I hope you're doing well too!

Oh oh, I just came back to this site and deleted about 40 of my old discussions. However I kept 22 because I feel that it could be an arena for sensible discussion (on issues). But i do agree with you. Revisiting old posts can and do bring back fond memories. I don't blame you. Sometimes when you write you leave a little piece of your mind / self. I am so busy right now that I visit when I get notification. And i try to visit a new person everyday...just to open up the horizon. Hopefully, I'll strike a happy balance!

@cahaya1983 Interesting. I sometimes wonder how people find my old discussions. I have over 2000 discussions so I don't go looking at them. I know once in a while older posts show up on the side as well. I've never seen my own, because it's always what you might be interested in reading.
That's good. For many of us this is sort of like a diary and many members keep track of their progress in different things through their discussions. So yes in a way revisiting old discussions can help us think of ways to improve ourselves.
