Do you get tired of doing things the same way everyday on MyLot?

For a week, I had the perfect system for responding to new posts on MyLot. I would open an interest group and then click the tabs for ten discussions and finish those (including tags) before moving on. But today it malfunctioned. I'm not sure why. Today I got bored and decided just to respond to friends discussions in addition to any that looked interesting in top discussions. I am having one of those non-MyLot days on Mylot. Have you ever felt that way? What's your day been like on MyLot? Has it been productive? Do you ever like to change things up on Mylot so you don't get bored?

hi beauty queen I jump around a lot today and that way' I dont get bored and do find some really interesting discussions to respond to, also. i know I should respond moret to new user discussions but so many times I am either not interesed in the topic or its one of those do you like candy or what flavor of ice cream do you like, how many times can someone post this same discussion? I wasted an hour and a half waiting for a cab that did not get here until it made me misss my doctor appointment. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Oh Hatley! I'm sorry to hear about the doctor's appointment. Those are so important for one's overall health. I hope things will work out for you. Sometimes I find that I can post responses to five or ten discussions from one friend. That keeps me from getting bored. For some reason I wasn't able to do that yesterday. No fault of MyLot. Just rainy all day and I was trying out some new things online. Thanks for sharing your day with me. Always a wonderful day when you stop by!

I find that it is hard to find something interesting to respond to on here. I have been on here a week so far and my system was to get on here and respond to almost everything I can. But, after awhile it gets me board. Today though I have been on here off and on. To tell yah the truth it has been slow for me. I haven't responded to alot of disscussions like I have.

It has been a slow mylot day for me. I've been here off and on but haven't written that much. I wouldn't say I was bored with the site, just rather too many other things going on around the house and the net. I wonder how your system malfunctioned

I mean, my personal system of posting malfunctioned. I used it too much and felt the need to change things up. The site is very nice. Got no problem with MyLot. Just got bored with my way of doing things. Sometimes I try to change my way of posting so things will be fun day in and day out. Thanks for your response.

I see, my confusion there. But, I am normally confused anyways. I think it is my natural state

I guess it's possible I was just exhausted last night when I posted this. Often tiredness produces a sense of boredom or feeling "out of place." I haven't been sleeping well. That always makes me feel this way, a little impatient with the status quo. Thanks for taking time to talk with me today.

I think that I have had quite a productive day, I have posted quite a bit more than I have done recently today. My usually routine is open tabs from today's top discussions and reply to some of the tagged decisions until I get bored of doing similar topics. I then do the same thing with discussions with no responses and move on to the discussions that my friends have started. I have never gone through interests as I would feel like I was answering the same thing over and over again.

I've seen you on Mylot a lot lately. Do you get to post a lot every day? Seems you are always around. I have posted over 100 in a days time, but then my hands hurt really bad. So I don't do that too often.

Sometimes I post a lot, sometimes I post only a little bit. This month I have not done much as I have only earned $2.84.

I have never had any real system for doing things here at myLot. I like to read about others who do. I just think it would remove the enjoyment from it for me. I think if I wanted to maximize my earnings here it would be best to have a system in order to stay on top of things and make sure the system was working. But as it is right now, I just pop in here now and then when I have a few minutes to myself (which isn't often lately).

I'm having one of those days. I don't have much time to start a discussion and follow up, so I'm just following up on some older discussions. It's less pressure. And I can get everything updated.

Well sweety I usually respond directly from notification! I can't remember the last time I had spare time after doing that to go look at other discussions! It is even worse now as the kids have finished school for the summer so I don;t get as much of a chance to get online in peace! lol xxx

The notifications confuse me. Don't ask why. Just do. So, I don't use them. And I do miss some discussions by accident. Anyway, I have to kind of guess at who's posted what these days. I keep hunting and searching for friends discussions. Right now it's a hit and miss.

LOL I get confused when I don't answer from notification - I guess we are all different though and that is ok with me - would be too boring if we all did it the same! Hugs xxx

Oh yes we've all had those off days with mylot. It just like with anything else, it gets old after a while then you take a break and come back when you feel up to it then it's like "how did I leave this place to begin with?" I'm in such a foul mood right now because of my mom being in pain and she won't go to the emergency room. She's worrying me sick that I couldn't eat much of my dinner. I'm trying to sound cheery but it's so hard! So I put it into a discussion but it still didn't make me feel any better.

Good morning, dear beauty queen. Quotation: "Today I got bored and decided just to respond to friends discussions in addition to any that looked interesting in top discussions." Well, this discussion was just posted twenty hours ago, namely yesterday. I have to say that I think that I have found it a much easier way for me to respond to a certain friend's discussion so that I don't have to read all the email notifications to find one that interests me before I start to respond to. I am glad that I did the way that I said the whole day yesterday and even now. This way, I find that it is more effective and productive on my side when I respond to discussions. I am starting to like my latest way. lol

I must have been having a down day. It stormed so much and affected my mood making me feel blue and lack luster. I am feeling better now as I've had some rest. Sometimes when I'm really tired, nothing interests me. For awhile I was responding to many older discussions from my various friends and that kept me very busy. Now that I have gone through much of the friends archives of discussion, I must find something new. Then again, new friend discussions are always forming. And I'm never bored with my friends discussions! I had been trying to respond to lots of the new discussions with zero responses (by new members) and just picking a category and responding to that. But none of my friends were posting there. So I missed talking to them. I can't explain it. Guess I was just trying something new. I think that I will just stick to my friends discussions from now on. Thanks for posting. Beauty Queen

Yes, I get the same way. I get bored, everyday, as I come on myLot.. I try to answer a certain amount of friend's discussions vs recent discussions. Ans so forth. I find myself changing up my routine, so that I will not get bored. Some of my tactics have worked, while, I will have to just leave the site to go to another site.

Oh yea, I definitely have been having those days! I'm thinking it might be because for my first almost 2 weeks I have been posting so much and pretty much all I've been doing is writing on here. But yea, the past 3 days I have been doing worse and worse. And Yesterday I only did maybe 3 posts! That is way down from even my previous bad days of 19 and 25. I really am trying to get back into it. I am hoping that my slow day yesterday will help me, and that today I can do better. I actually did spend quite a bit of time on here reading yesterday, but I just couldn't get inspired. I'm thinking a break is probably needed from time to time in order to really regenerate ideas and thoughts. At least for me. Mostly, though, I am trying to find positive discussions that I can really get into!

I know how you feel. Tuesday I had to really push myself to post any responses. I did a lot of updating on my own discussions though. Once I found that my energies couldn't be used for posting to others discussions, I started responding to my own discussions. It made me feel more energetic. I felt like there was a better connection to MyLot through my friends who had posted on the discussion. Maybe that is what is missing for me elsewhere. I don't get to "chat" with all my friends in one spot when I go elsewhere. But I love chatting on other member discussions, just couldn't pick up momentum yesterday. Hopefully Wednesday will be better. Thanks for sharing your time with me today! Beauty Queen

Well, I don't mylot everyday. So I guess I don't come here often enough to get tired of it. I know what you mean though, I remember there was a period when I could come here very often and spend a long time, I get tired from time to time and I try to alternate other stuff in between. I guess we all need a break once in awhile to keep something interesting.

I got all mopey yesterday cause of the constant rains and storms so took a break and updated my girl games blog and free movies blog. Now, I have it set to auto-post through my birthday in October. So, the bad day did turn out pretty well after all. Thanks for your post. Always nice to chat with you. Beauty Queen

Hello beautyqueen26, I do have those bad days here! Sometimes, I get so bored that I didn't feel like replying and whenever I force myself to do so, I feel like those discussions look alike..almost all of them...

Some days I feel charged up and ready to go. This weekend was so sad on the site I could hardly post.

Maybe it is because I'm still considered new to mylot.com that I never get bored. I always get stuck on what to post and what to say on my new discussions, but never get bored. I don't really do the same thing over and over again because I'm always doing something along with posting.

Yeah! I hear you. Mylot is still fun to me, too. But for some reason, today I had the blah feeling. I think it was because it rained all day long. I never feel like doing anything on rainy days.

Well, the last time I got bored with myLot, I left for slightly over a month! I was just tired of putting up post after post for the sake of money and besides, I was busy with visits from my mum, travelling to and fro France and my other hobbies like weaving, spinning and knitting - I just didn't have time to put up discussions or to reply to my friends' discussions (sorry folks!). I'd say that you should take time out from myLot if you're bored. It's not mandatory like a job...at least that's how I see it. :)
