Can you manage to post 10 discussions in a day?

Looking at the notifications from my email box, I noticed few lotters are posting far too many discussions in one day. These lotters really have a mouthful of ideas to pen down. I wonder how they are able to manage commenting to all their responses. Or they just keep posting and leaving their responses to fate? Coming up with one discussion takes me days to think of what to write and what subject can trigger the minds of people reading them. And when an idea comes to mind, it would take me at least half an hour to think how to word my post while typing it out directly on screen. When no new fresh ideas strike a code with my unthinking mind, I really feel I have to do something, to at least give others the choice of an alternative viewpoint so I go scouting for good discussions to respond. What is your strategy when it comes to mylotting?

I do not, I respond more than I do anything else. I am one that finds it easier to contribute that way. I don't have alot of time to respond to the responses that people give me in my discussions and then I feel guilty. I do read each and every one, but if I start a disussion and answer all of them, I have no time to respond to others posts.

I agree with you. It is time consuming to reply to all our responses but again it another way of earning from our own discussions. We are paid for our posts but not the tons of responses we get unless we comment on them. Actually we do benefit from this double-cropping.

I think it would be way too time consuming to respond to 10 posts again and again. I don't think is too difficult to come up with 10 different discussions there's just so much to talk about and there's so much info on the internet. I guess I'm one of those people with a lot on her mind, I have a large family maybe that's why I don't know. Once I read a post I already have something to say.

@ NYRican, you are a fast thinker. This place should be right for you where it needs spontaneous responses. Get things moving then as I see you are still in the infancy.

Hi Zandi, I am like you if nothing comes to mine then I don't bother making a discussion, but if some does come to mind then I make a discussion. Other than that I try to answer as many posts as is possible from my friends, some do respond but it really makes me wonder how do others do the same. There is one member here and she always used to clear her inbox that could be up to 80 discussions etc..it amazed me, there is noway I can do that" LoLo

Hi Lolo, have not seen you around for a while? I don't think I can ever go beyond 2 discussions a day. Posting discussions entails extra obligation of giving out replies which is time consuming. Responding is the better choice for me.

Mine is very similar to yours Zandi! No way would I create 10 discussions in one month - let alone in one day! Those are not quality discussions with interaction from the users starting them. Most of them just end up as started topics with some answers and not what myLot is about at all. The next thing we hear is someone complaining that they responded on a discussion that was deleted 'and they don't know why' Most of the time it is blatantly obvious. If those Lotters really wanted to do things like myLot tell us to do them, then they could do just one at a time, comment on all the responses and keep it active and they would be so much happier the next day I am certain!

I noticed that diana we are both moving at a tortoise speed here. There were one or two occasion when I posted two discussions in one day and I was like catching for my breath to comment. Some are still being 'KIV'. When I concentrate on giving out my replies to the same discussion, my comments become repetitive and that signals me to break away for while to refresh my mind. I don't deny that few quantity posters do have quality in their posts but it is monotonous to respond to all the discussions from one person alone leaving no time for the others.

I totally agree with you guys, It will be very difficult for me to start ten discussions a day,and it will IMPOSSIBLE to maintain all those discussions active. I think the quality is more important than quantity. I'd rather prefer to create one or two good discussions than 10 bad ones which will be deleted or be commented once or twice. However, I do admit I am still working on how to create good discussions. I have been a mylot member since a while, but only recently I have become an active member, so I am still learning.

There are already so many discussions already started where we can go and respond and comment, without having to worry about starting one of our own. Don't worry because if your participation is interesting and quality you will earn without starting any at all.

Hi zandi458! I used to be able to post more than 10 discussions per day. In fact, I did more. But that was before. It's not that easy for me anymore. For one, I do not have much time. Another thing is that I do not find it easy to come up with topics anymore. Now, when posting, all I do is share my recent experiences or that of people close to me.

There are still people in here who are starting a lot of New discussions, and I am sure it will continue to happen as long as myLot continues to be around. I am sure there are many who will start a New discussion and never come respond back or choose a Best Response to it as well. Personally I could never imagine starting 10 New discussions all the time and ever keeping up with them, as I am having problems keeping up with the Few I start as is.

I hope those who can start many discussions can also come back to respond to their responders otherwise it doesn't serve any purpose of starting discussions when it is one sided.

When I was very active then, I could post many discussions in one day. The ten discussions per day is very much achievable. If one is a keen observer, then having 10 discussions a day is not a problem. It is good that here in Mylot, we can talk anything under the sun. Have a good day.

It is not impossible. Yes, it is achievable but the obligations that it entails to comment to all the responses is a great burden for me. I might not be able to come to each and everyone of my responses when I have too many discussions to start.

Hi Zandi! I am like you it take few days/weeks to start a new discussion, as far as I am concerned. I just cannot start 10-15 discussions in a day, the reason is I cannot think of so many topics and I just cannot do justice to all my posts because I won't get time to post my comments on the responses received.

Being a veteran mylotter I think you have your own strategy that works well for you. It is a burdensome task to comment but not replying to our responses will lead us to guilty consciousness.

well i personally couldn't post or start ten (10) discussions a day....i just couldn't and won't keep up with a lot of replies especially when i wanna reply to other members discussions....i had a post not like yours but it was talking about a lot of members here who post over and more than one discussions...i can find it very annoying at times too...like if i go to the top section of the discussion list to search for a discussion to reply to...i would see One member had all his/her discussions from the first page to the second page....and some of the discussions and not very interesting....and seeing all of those discussions just made me not bother to continue like going to the third page/list to see other members discussions...i don't know if members who wrote over four discussions a day had a lot on their mind to talk about or get out in the open...or they just make a lot of discussions and think the more members who commented on their discussion would make them earn a lot more...but it's not really so...because they have to reply back to each and every member in order to earn from those excessive discussions. as for me on the other hand i would only make one (1) discussion a day and there are days i log in here into mylot and i haven't start any discussions at all...and whenever i do think of something on a specific topic i would write it down in my diary and the next day or three days i would start a discussion about it...i just love answering to other members discussions instead of making my own...it's already too hard to draw audience to my discussions...i would prefer to make over ten (10) comment a day on everyone else post but as for making my own it's definitely a NO NO!

Don't be puzzled if a poster who post many discussions and find their discussions spread all over the pages in the top ten column cos they have many active friends on their list who support them well.

There's no way i want to post that many if i could think of ten. Alot of those 10 could probably be lefy off. I hate to see anyone do that. Your discussions always show how much thought u have put into them. U know i have always enjoyed your discussions.

of course I can, but must be with an open mind if there was something I was not sure so I will miss it and come back if allowed me to compose and write. I was not forced to make a lot of discussion, sometimes I am here just to read.

Same here all I can do is respond that also takes me lot of time as I have to go searching for the interest or discussions that I really feel I can respond and contribute to but there are some mylotters who post as many as 10 disussions. I am pondering over a discussion I am intending posting since around 2 to 3 days but I am not able to get the right words. People here looks like are good writers. I wish I could also pen down my thoughts this fast.

A number of my friends here are known writers. But they are quite reserved and only post occasionally. Some may have many good ideas but don't post as much as they wish to cos of language barrier. For the native speakers, they have no problem as their flow of words come naturally. For non native speakers, it takes a bit of hard thinking to come up with proper wordings to be understood well. It is true that practice makes perfect and while mylotting one can gain more confidence in writing.

Hi Zandi.....As far as I am concerned,even posting 10 responses a day is impossible,let alone starting new discussions...ha..ha...I dont know,but I tend to get easily bored with mylot these days,and by the time I finish responding to 3 or 4 discussions,I am ready to quit mylot...So I really appreciate those persons who are able to post many discussions on mylot everyday...hats off to them.....

Why is your spirit of mylotting ebbing away so fast? I have been here for four years now and still active mylotting. I just like to be around mylot and not in any other social networking site. Well, give yourself a break and come back when you are recharged. I took a long leave in mylot (about 6 months) only to come back with deeper addiction.

Hi zandi, I rarely started a discussion other then football/soccer things. I had started one about someone rob me in other earning site and I got 30+ responses. And I need about 1 day accumulate time just to leave a comment on it (not including comment back). So I would very carefully to started to a new discussion after this. I prefer to give my response then started my own. Other then football thing, I also started some technical discussions. I always ask for a help if I could not settle my computer related problem and I rarely got more the one page of responses. In other words, most of my discussions are limited to certain group of mylot members. Aramaiti tah ....

Hi akuler, did you change your username? I haven't had aramaitti for quite awhile here since you have been busy commentating on football.. Getting few pages of responses is fun but will drag our time when giving out comments. Cheers!! a peck of montoku for you...

I never change my username. It is same as before. I only change my avatar a few time before but I am using this one quite a long time. Maybe you just ignore me. Just kidding. I am not a good commenter. That's why I prefer not to start a discussion that would bring a lot of responses. I prefer to give a response because I can give my opinion and point in one go. If I did not come back, no one would care. But, if I started a discussion and leave the responses unattended then everybody will care and give a salty face to me.

Hi Zandi, I think it is possible. i am challenged to try this. this will entail so much time. you have to go back to each and every response in your discussion. this will eat up all your time. for me this is possible. i will try to think of nice topics to post here but i will save it first until i make 10 topics then i will have it posted here.

Hi there zandi.. first of all, nice avatar you have there.. For me, I don't think I'm able to post 10 discussions a day at all. There won't be that many things that I can talk about and to comment on each and everyone. I always feel bad if I don't answer, and I love to comment on friends, but to cope with 10, oh wow.. I can't do it. I'd rather answer and comment.

Yes, I like my avatar too and the color strike a balance with my star rating. Thanks for appreciating. Creating discussions sometimes needs a well thought out plan like how to be creative in putting the appropriate words, the title and general acceptance of the readers here. Anyone can just write few boring lines and post as a discussion but what benefit does it derive for the poster and also to the readers. We want to learn something from a discussion that may involve many views from the floor and not scribble some nonsensical posts just for the sake of posting.
