Informative or interactive ?

India
February 12, 2016 11:55am CST
In $myLot$, we can publish any type of posts we like to publish. But, the posts of the informative kind may attract fewer comments. For instance, I made a post recently about an army person who survived for six days after being buried under the ice. To my amazement, the interaction was unusually less. The question here is whether we make interactive type posts or not. First of all, we need to choose the subject for interactions and make a post as simple as possible. If the readers find no interesting stuff for discussion, they'll just skip or move on without making any comment. It's important to find a suitable and interesting subject to write a post on this site. Isn't it right?

You are right in the fact that if it isn't interesting, then others won't want to respond to them at all. I am fortunate that all of my discussions have lots of responses and comments, which really makes me happy, as some of them are topics of things that I have seen happen, or things, that have actually happened to me. I wasn't sure if they were interesting enough, but to my surprise they have been. If I can't think of anything to say, then I will wait until I can come up with a topic of interest.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I think our discussions will be interesting if they can engage, entertain, and enlighten the readers to some extent. @rosekiss @trivia79

@vickyblogs I agree with you. That is what makes mylot what it is, as the interaction is the best part of it. I like to interact as much as I can, and I hope that otehrs will want to as well.

You have to make a decision: pander to the masses and write what you think will attract interest and comment or write what you feel and want and let the chips fall. Most of what I write falls on deaf ears or is that eyes but I write for myself.

I remember that post about the army person being buried, which I found quite interesting. Don't know why you didn't have more responses on that one.

Anything that is understood by all the members generates more response...Information and interaction are what an individual perceives. For some film news is News and for some it is politics and gardening and so on... mylot caters to all kinds of tastes !

I guess "interesting" depends on the person. I would find that army story engaging if I came across it.

What you say is true but sometimes a post that you don't think will attract a lot of readers strikes a chord for some reason and you get a lot of comments. So it is hard to judge what is going to do well and what isn't.
