Hello everyone,I have joined myLot some months back,I guess,it is almost 3 months now,recently,I am noticing that I am running out of discussions.I don't know whether it is just me or even some of you feels the same.I keep searching to respond to discussions and I will end up even in no response section of myLot still sometimes it is no good.I am not able to understand is it me and my mood that I am not finding my kind of interest to respond to or is it that there are only few people who are posting their discussions and many just waiting to respond to them?is this the reason?

[i]HI brisk, I got 100 plus notifications each day from friends so I don't need to looks for post to respond! As a friend, I feel like it is my responsibility to support my friend's post..I don't post often..It will be good that in a week, I can start 1 or 2 topics! I guess you need to add more friends so that you will be notified once you have them in your list! it's my 5th month to be active here and I am enjoying each day![/i]

Well,I do give responses to my friends discussions and my myLot notification is always on,I do get notified but it is only few,I guess my friends are in vacation or busy with their schedules, so thesedays they are not posting much.Moreover, when I respond,it should also be a topic that interests me,where I can share my opinions,thoughts,views,whatever.5th Month and you really had made so many number of posts,I can see that.My best wishes and happy myLotting!

Nope, I do feel same way too. The reason possibily to me is that I am so drained with work and my mind can't think of a good topic. Sometimes, I can figure something while already placing my fingers in the keyboard and type ahead, I am overwhelmed that there are still friends who respond to my discussion though. Sometimes, when I figure out a topic, and later realized that it has been posted already, I won't bother to post mine anyways.

I guess, I need a good break to fresh up my mind and come up with good new ideas and topics for discussion.Like you,I am also so drained with work that it is impossible for me to think of something interesting and worth discuss.Anyways,take a break for sometime.You are one of the best here on myLot, I mean I have seen your discussions and you have responded to many of my posts,so I am looking forward to hear more from you.Good day!

I would take that compliment, thank you. I am responding to you discussions since, you have great and interesting topics to respond to as well. Cheers !

Not really. I only start a discussion if something comes to me and reply if something interests me. If you think about it, anything that happens to you in the daytime, watching a show, reading a paper, stuff you did, ate, heard, can all be subjects for discussions. It's endless, if you think about it!

Thank you my friend.I will surely do that,actually,I am working and I hardly get time to indulge myself in other activities,maybe that is why I ran out of discussions and finds nothing interesting,I bet.Happy myLotting dear friend!

Haha, where else can you gossip about your co-workers? You can vent here on your job, boss, the lunch room, your hours, your salary, etc. Think of this site as having a conversation with your best friend and go for it!

One can only write so much and then stop. Actually there are some good discussions which we can reply to, and the other ones we can leave. It h appens to all of us, and now I too try and reply to those whose discussions I find interesting which is not much. From last month to this, ive not even made 10 dollars in two months, so this is how the ball rolls. Try and reply as best as you can.

Sometimes I will just come online and log i to myLot and check with all the postings,I reply to those which I find it interesting and move on with the other.In the beginning,when I first joined myLot,I can make even almost a dollar in one single day just by giving responses and now, I hardly even make $0.90 cents since I don't posts nor I respond much,it is not like I don't like to respond, I do but I am running out of discussions.Sometimes, I feel, is it something to do with my mood?

Welcome to the club. I am undergoing exactly what you are experiencing. I have started making about 6 cents in a day which is bad. I never made a dollar in a day, but 6 cents is miserable. Well, it happens. all the b est.

It is so nice of you on not that you are not out of discussion post of yours and yes I do recognize that as well when I will open from this site or unto my e-mail and I am always out of discussion unless if I have new experience within the day and I am more on a responder person .

I'm with you! Not only am I running out of discussions to respond to but I'm also running out of ideas to even start my own. I guess this is bad especially if I want to reach my payout by next month. That's why when I stumble into a good discussion that I can't respond to because of lack of experience to share, I just rate it and I try to look for some responses to just comment on.

It's not just you. I've been on here 2 weeks now and I'm having trouble thinking of things to talk about. It's not too hard replying to other discussions. But, I have a hard time thinking of things to start a discussion of my own.

This is the problem with me too.I can see too many discussions,that I cannot find any topic to discuss,I guess,I need to be more creative and take a nice break,so that when I come back,I can have new ideas and share my experiences.Good day my friend and Keep posting!

hi brisk123 I hear this from so many posters yet there are 143,556 posters and surely out of all these, if you really'look and read various discussions you will find something to appeal to you. I suggest if you do not, you may be too p;icky,so make some discussions to suit your interests and help; bring more discussions for others who cannot seem to think any of all these are interesting. perhaps a lot of you do not really bother to read all the discussion so you miss things that should interest most any one.

Well Hatley my friend,honestly,I even go through "no response section".I will keep on digging discussions until I find one that is interesting.You may think that maybe I am being too picky/choosy but sometimes I find some discussions preety silly.I don't mean to offend anyone.I don't know whether the problem is the particular hour I am login in to myLot or my interest or my mood or maybe I just need to take a break for a day or two.Take care my friend.

i have been here for almost 3 months too and i haven't started any discussion for quite awhile now. I just run out of ideas to make a discussion. I find it more exciting to respond to discussions rather than start my own. But i do try to start my own discussions when i get a good topic i hope....

Ya I understand,sometimes we run out of topics and ideas to discuss,there are thousands and thousands of myLotters so we really need to find a good topic that interest others as well,the topic that is not yet posted/discuss.Keep posting my friend!

I believe that happens to everyone as well. I've been here in mylot for barely two days only but I also ran out of what to discuss. As for me, I want to respond to discussions that interests me. If it caught my attention then I'd definitely spend time and respond. Don't worry, I'm sure everyone goes through a period like that. ^^

Hi everyone - - I too am new to MyLot. I've been here about 3 weeks, and have made $1.75 so far. I think all of us go through some bordom, and having problems with finding topics of intrest to join in to, as well as starting a new topic. But, there are a lot of subjects here that we can get involved with. Maybe adding some of the intrests into your profile area that you're not real intrested in, would at least start some type of curiosity into a new field of intrest, and discussion. Another thing you might consider, is when you are not at your computer and have a little free time - just sit and try to think of a few things that you could post about. Keep your list handy for reference. If you see a post that is already close to what you would post - respond to it. Wait awhile, and post about that particular issue you had written down, a bit later. Be creative, and try to do your posting at a time where you can just sit and rest a bit - sometimes having some music in the background helps, along with a cup of java, or whatever you prefer to drink. Hope I've helped out some. Happy MyLotting! :-) Classy Cat

Hi friend,I feel the same sometimes ,I dont find any discussion to start and even When I start I get only few responses.So sometimes I feel bored to start discussions and end up in only posting responses to others discussions.Now a days I like only posting responses to others discussions.There are thousands of discussions popping up all the time and still we may not find any discussion interesting to post a response.This happens to everyone sometimes.I try to go away for sometime when I feel so and again return after sometime or the next day and I would find mylot again interesting.thanks for sharing.happy mylotting.

no, you're definately not alone here. i think this means, to me, that i need to take a break. go to another site. go talk on the phone. i go through everything on the toolbar: my interests, new, recent, friends started, no response, new user, etc. there is a mini-myLot which i belong to. and there are many members in both places. i find topics are copied and pasted there, too. so, i'm seeing double ! doesn't stimulate the imagination either.

I feel like that on some days too when I scan around and cannot find many discussions to respond to, not that there are no discussions started but many do not interest me. My observation is that there are always discussions initiated, but more and more, I find repeated discussions perhaps because there are less new topics to put on the table. One reason for me posting less is also because I have less time to come in here compared to six months ago. I also seldom start discussions these days, because I never really get very good reception no matter how good the discussion topic is. This puts a dampener on my enthusiasm sometimes, so I just confine myself to answering other people's discussions instead.
