i have over 200 friends..everyday i get friends requests..but i don't like to reject them..i try as much as i can to get through and reply to as many friend's discussions as i can..but i don't get too many responses..soi have decided to really cut back on my discussions and respond more to the others..even though many of them never respond to mine..does posting less of my discussions affect earnings too much? is it better for me to post less of mine..as alot of my friends don't read them anyway..? i have kinda lost my confidence a bit on the posting new discussions front.. how many should i post in a week? rouphly?

You know what...just keep on posting, be patient. I understand you, I am like that these days, but do keep on posting, just having fun and not thinking about the money. It'll come.

I don't know. I've been posting about 2-5 a day recently, but I used to not post any and I still made plenty of money. But I'll really miss it if you don't post as much! I know that I don't always reply, but I reply to all of your topics that I can. I count on you to start great topics, lol, because you almost always post a few per day that I enjoy replying to. Please don't lose your confidence! ^_^ I really enjoy your topics!!!

I don't think posting less discussions will affect your earnings. Most of the people say that they are earning mainly from responses. Personally I don't post much discussions. Sometime I do post one or two a day and sometime nothing. But I can see a difference in my earnings if I don't post response much. I mean responses really make a difference. Don't lose your confidence, keep posting and enjoy.

Ive made alot of my earns from responding to others discussions. It's hard for me to think of a good post anyways... and usually most of the time, there is a discussion already posted, that i wanted to post.

I say you should keep posting interesting topics. If your friends to not reply to them, atleast other mylot users will. I personally try to reply to my friends discussions.

i also try to respond to discussions started by my friends. it's the least way i can do to connect to all of them. and p8ntballr21 is right. if friends won't respond to your discussions, don't worry, other people will. just keep it up and have fun. that's the best thing we can have here.

There was this time when I really felt lazy to read on other peoples discussion and I just end up starting my own.. Honestly some of them doesn't really make much sense I just typed in what came to mind and til now it got 0 response.. what a shame.. too bad I can't erase them.. That is why lately I have been trying to answer to discussions more as compared to starting my own.. well if I haven't got any interesting topics I try to keep myself away from starting my own discussion..

If you think friends have become friends and will post in your discussions then you are simply wrong.I get friends requests from those whose discussions I have answered. So everyone becomes a friend to get more replies than to reply himself or herself.

I don't get many responses to my posts either, so I mostly just respond to others posts. It doesn't bother me, though I should make more of an effort to read the posts that those on my friends list have written. Its only fair. Don't worry about not posting discussions, I have just as much fun posting responses.

Hi. I have a bunch of discussions in my inbox right now to go through. I know I have several more from you other than this one to reply to. I read most posts but I don't always have a reply for them. I reply to the ones I can relate to though. I'm not sure how mylot figures on what to pay for posting. I tend to do more replying to posts rather than making my own. Are you happy with the earnings you make from posting? All I can see that I earned from was replying to other persons posts or discussions.

Hi, I thought I hadn't seen many of your postings recently! Well I have found that posting one or two discussions a day and answering about 40 earns me just under $2 roughly. Rest assured I always read your discussions and replies you have left me! Happy Mylotting!

Hi Jie! :) Gong xi fa cai!! haha I just got back from an awesome trip back to my dad's hometown, as it's customary for our whole clan to congregate there for the CNY. How did yours go? The topics that you post are always interesting, I don't think you should give up even if there aren't a lot of response. I can't even think of what to discuss about so I just end up sitting around replying instead. I think if you cut down on starting discussions, that would affect the earnings. By how much? Dunno. :P

My discussions are like that. The friends that I have accepted there are not a lot of them that respond to my discussions. So I had made a decision to just read the discussions of others and post my response to them. It takes a lot of my time anyway to do that. There are so many interesting discussions to read. I would like it if I had more responses to my discussions but I also figure not everyone is interested in everything so I guess that is it. But I do keep posting. Just viewing the discussions and responses keep me busy here for a couple of hours and better. This is a good site to come to and I am glad I ran across it.

You don't have 200 friends. You have 200 names with pictures in your SO CALLED "friends list". They are not your friends. Do you have 200 friends in you real life? I think not. I'm SURE even. It is more than a NICKname that I want from my real friends. Just forget it. Don't answer. It's not your problem. Take my advice - cut your friends list.
