I'm 7 days old now at mylot and started some discussions. Every time I post a topic i'm trying my best to think of a "quality" post i will make, some i got response, others i didnt receive even one. I feel that "subject" plays a major role in having a successful discussion. How do you choose you subject?

topic - Effective Subject in myLot
As u r new here om mylot, u will face the problem of zero responce. Everybody faces, as soon ur friend's list will go on increasing with ur stay here on mylot, u will receive atleast few responces, for each discussion. About topic it depends on friends like n dislikes,ur headlive should attract people to reply for it. (I too don't get much responces for many of the discussions). If topics r heavy like budget don't expect much responces.It its simple like what u like car or bike, u will get many responces. Best wishes. But, earning u get seeks for quality of discussion n not the quantity.

yes u r correct if we post burning subject we can get nore number of responses very easily.If we post the subject without any matter so u cannot get any response from anybody.

that is right. but even if we post a "burning" subject and nobody is interested our burning topic will only sit there alone :( :( Our fellows here gave useful advise regarding this issue. Let us digest and apply it.

I would like to help you by this suggestion. If you do have a hobby then you can cater your discussions based on that. For example, if you like gardening, then post about nature e.g. plants, herbs, trees, fruits, soil, grasses, etc, etc. For me, I like to read the newspapers at times and glean some ideas out of them.

Now I understand, but I barely see newspaper around :) - well I can use internet instead. thanks for the idea I will apply your suggestion and hopefully improve me and other readers in someways.

Yeah you are right. Definitely subject matters. I have also experienced that. But number of factors are also there. I may add something that "make more friends & do respond your friend's discussions", it will help a lot having response. Start a discussion within a particular area of interest having the precise subject in short.

I agree with you aliasad. I'l note it. Starting a discussion in an area of interest make sense..how can we achieve many response if we post movie subject in a bookworm interest - i like this one. Adding friends and responging to friend discussion is also a good place to start...
