Do you ever lose you Mylot Motivation?

United States
April 1, 2007 7:43am CST
Sometimes, I am finding myself without Mylot Motivation. I click here and there looking for something to respond to. I try to do at least 20 responses daily, but today I've yet to reach 6 I believe. I just can't seem to motivate myself. It seems I can't find a topic I want to discuss. Not due to the topics being bad, I think its more of a lack of what to say. Do you ever find yourself with a lack of words? I have named my affliction...Missing Mylot Motivation.. at least I can have some alliteration.

I often loss of motivation and many times do not get words or feel discussion hard to response then I seek many discussions but fail to response and waste about an hour or more or some less. First I seek discussion from my friends then I try to response but when I loss motivation I feel hard of my friend's discussion too. Then I seek discussions with zero response and can response 2 or 3. I think it happen to other users too. Of course I surf then other sites.

I too have similar experience with myLot. Seeking discussions with zero responses shows your generosity. When I lost my motivation I normally sign out.

I am only on here once or twice a week so I completely understand where you're coming from. Sometimes I do not feel like posting either and want to do other things. The other things is where most of my focus has been lately.

I often have this. I'm willing to respond to discussions, but then I find I actually don't have much to say. It usually happens when I feel tired or a bit restless and unable to focus for very long. Sometimes I just need to be in the right mood just so I can reply to many discussions and post longer replies.

Some times, I will just logon to mylot and close it. There is a total lack of interest. Like over this weekend, I opened mylot on both days and just closed it. Didn't even bother to read. It just like mentalliy tells me to switch it off and do something else. Yea guess what, I did something else. I slept through the weekend. Man, that was quite nice too, a long deserved rest. Cheers

That was precisely my situation right now! I don't feel like responding to some of the topics, not because they are bad, but I just simply don't have anything to say. I'd just decided to do some browsing to see if I could come up with a topic of my own.

ofcourse i somtimes lose my mylot motivation i think it is very natural you always start big time with intensity and as the time goes by you start dealing with different things i have days that i searh alote for an interesting topic o respond to and i can not find nothing there are alote of days that i see topics that sounde like: "what do you like your right shoe or your left shoe..and i don't really think they are quelity posts so i do not respond to them..so my solution is to take a break for a few hours or a day and then come back and see what's going on..i think this is very natural:)

I can really understand your concern man. When I started using mylot, I used to do 200 posts a day. After sometime, it started feeling quite boring to me and started searching for some other programs. Now I have realised that mylot is the best and I post around 50 a day. So, you need to rememeber that you are at the best website.

I know what you mean, misheleen. I'm getting pretty burned out lately here at mylot. I kept scrolling up and down and yet my mind isn't working properly and my heart lacks the motivation. I think you better take a rest, refresh your mind and come back if you feel re-energize again. :)

I've found myself without mylot motivation before now. Sometimes it's so hard to sit in front of the PC and just type lol. I found that I lost my motivation if I was signed into my instant messenger chat program and so now, I make sure I've done at least 30 posts before I sign in. I found myself with a lack of words last night. I saw the words on the screen but I could not respond to them to the extent that I was satisfied with what I was saying. Take a break for a day or so. We're already earning for April now and so one day or so isn't going to break the bank. Once you've rested your motivation usually comes back.

I do sometimes feel like this , but all off a sudden i will find a discussion that interests me and i will notice that the person has alot of good ones that I can reply to. After that I am usually back again. Another advice can be to just shut of the computer and do something else for a while =)

it happened to me after a few responses in mylot. but one day i stumbled on a discussion on how to make more money on mylot, i tried and it worked. not so about the money but the suggestion helped me post more response. try and open few browsers on mylot, pick a different discussion in every browser and try to write something about it. believe me, u'll feel forced at first but after the first response, you'll want to write for every discussions. good luck!

I have days where I know I'm just feeling lazy, but other days I believe the pickin's are slim on mylot. Of course I might miss some good discussions posted during the day because of time differences. Not saying most discussions aren't good, but I'm a picky replier!

I lose mylot motivation once in a while but I'm starting to get it back. I just wish I was able to see how much money I'm earning as I'm earning it...not wait until the next time they update the earnings, but oh well.

I've never really gotten motivated from the get go. I log in for 2-3 days and then off to something else. Then suddenly I find an email for a response to something I posted 2-3 mos ago, which brings me back. I guess being a regular at several forums doesn't help the matter. BTW, I just love your little monkey! He's too cute!

That happens to me at least once or twice a week. I have to admit it drives me nuts because I do want to "work" on mylot but it seems I cant find the words to answer that many discussions. What I do is just answer the ones I canand then I find the next day there arent enough discussions to answer. It seems like I am full of things to say and cant keep it to myself.
