Idea to start a new discussion
March 5, 2007 4:07am CST
How do you get an idea to start a new discussion on mylot (within sphere of your 'interests')? Do you go for some research or into deep thinking, before initiating a discussion? OR you go for any question/start any discussion, whenever the point(s) of discussions come into your mind?

hello dpk! to answer your question, i never used my brain to think hard. i mean, i never think too hard for a new question. i notice that most of my posts with larger amount of responses came from the posts that i posted instantly, unlike the ones that i painstakingly composed 'well', the get smaller resposes...:P.. ladies are more creative i guess. they dominate the world of mylot with longer sentences..(and better english too..) chao!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. But I do believe that you do have a sharp brain, that is why you can write wonderful responses and discussions. I agree with you that ladies are more creative then men and they dominate mylot and they have better command over English. Have a great day! Deepak

hi dpk262006! what a long nickname you've got there. anyway, i personally want to think of mylot as a melting pot of minds. of course, we all want to earn some dollars for sharing our two cents' on various topics, but i think the most important thing is that you enjoy what you do. so, in light with your question, it need not be something you have had a deep researching gig for. it can be something as spontaneous as seeing a butterfly flutter by your bedroom window. after all, life is pretty much like that. i do have other jobs online and i use my time here in mylot to destress and try to see what other people are thinking on their side of the world. and it's very enlightening.

Hi!ingenieure, Thanks a lot for your wonderful response. You are right, we do here on mylot whatever we enjoy. Your writing style and English looks pretty good. eg. " as spontaneous as seeing a butterfly flutter by your bedroom". It appears to me that you did not like my long nick name? Allow me to be your friend, I will tell you my real name and hopefully that will be liked by you. Thanks

hi again dpk262006! thanks so much! sure i would love to be friends! i am okay with your nickname but i find the numbers quite lengthy. just to give you an idea, mine is the French word for engineer (that's ingenieur) and then i placed an e at the end to signify that i am female. =P

Eversince I joined mylot last month, I had managed to create so many discussions but to tell you frankly, I do not know where I am getting my ideas. Maybe my mind is really creative because I have talents in writing. I just post whatever comes into my mind and I am thankful that they are getting good responses.

Dear Deepak Yes I do think a lot while starting any kind of discussion here.. But the deep thinking is only about -- will other members like my discussion or not .. otherwise I don't go into deep thinking .. My main motive is that all members should like my discussion and be a a part of it. Even I like your discussions as well that is the main reason other members gets attracted to your discussions :)

I get some ideas while reading paper, watch something around in public behaviour and sometimes get some source of information from my home people. When a get an outline about some topic i will start composing it in my notepad and later post it here in mylot.before posting i make some changes and include some points too. very rarely i have started some discussions online.

Hey hi Deepak, I never start discussions thinking that i should start now ...Usually when ever i come online i just open my mailbox and check emails and i do work , and i also open mylot always when ever i check the responses and read some friends discussions, i get some ideas and then it leads to initiate the discussion, I suddenly get ideas when i am doing some work, then i immediately start posting discussions. Till now it happened to me like this and i start discussions. If i start like this only i got a pretty good count of responses for my discussions , the other way did not work for me...so i am contiuing this way, i am enjoying my stay in Mylot as of now and if friends like you are there very much supportive then there is no way i can go anywhere...thank you so much deepak for posting such a nice discussion, very much appreciated , Happy Posting and have a nice day ahead Byee take care:))

I generally dont start many discussions, as I dont understand the psyche of mylot friends..I have some silly (according to me) discussions getting 130-140 responses.. & few meaningful ones getting only 3-4 responses.. Now I basically start a discussion with basic stuff..& at times wid certain evets related to me or life in general..:)

I don't start many discussions as I don't get much time, but mostly I start a topic of discussion based on the incidences in my life, I get good responses if the topic is really what experience I have faced in my real life or what has cropped up while I was reading or interacting with someone. Otherwise it is not very easy to get topics were people will respond

This is a great one. I can't believe that I missed it untill now. I start one on how I feel or what is on my mind. I sometimes go look at my discussions and just pick on at random. I can then choose a idea and run with it. I am not very good at this but I am getting better.

I dont do any deep thinking.just i would observe the day to day hapennings, watch the news and some times.. i do get the themes from the discussions already started here. But oflate i have a great pleasure in reading others topics and responding, Immaterial of the fact whether it is old one or new one. But it must be an interestin one to me. Take care friend:)

I get the topic of my discussions of a sudden ..!! The time it pops up in my mind I straight away write down that in my mobile to remember it. Some times I just staright away start the discussion with a simple question in mind in need to find an answer!! and some times a deep thought comes out as a discussion!! So its not fixed. But I never any kind of research for a simple topic..!! :)

You know sometimes I have day when so many questions, ideas come to my mind and I don't have really problem to start few discussions. But other time i could think and think and nothing would come to my mind. I don't know what it really depends on. But the most time I would start discussion about things interest me and I want to know different opinions about things. Also when I just read someone discussion the question would just come to my mind.
