Not Enough Action Here

I am very disappointed right now for the lack of action here at Mylot. There are very few new content and lots of it is awfully boring. I have the suspicion that lots of the users here have gone to check out some greener pastures. What is your feeling about this?

If it is boring we only have ourselves to blame. Best to find some regulars who produce thoughtful posts and stick with them. Not forgetting that we have our part to play in writing about things that others are interested to read.

True, I have some regulars that I really appreciate their discussions and comments but I have noticed that they are interacting less also.

I am finding plenty with those I follow. There are a lot of newbies in hopes of making their fortunes here too. I do recall a few saying the earnings were too slow and they were going elsewhere. For me it isn't about the money. The money is a nice perk, but love interacting with the people here.

The money just makes it more fun, it certainly won't feed us. LOL

There is a new site that has popped up, but in my opinion its not as nice as here...its meant to be more of a blogging platform anyway from what I'm seeing. I don't think that is the issue though. I believe its the spring and nice weather that has people off the computer and outside causing the drop in content here. I'm still seeing plenty to read and lots of people to talk to though.

I agree that spring here in the Northern Hemisphere has sprung a lot of folks free from their computers.

Are you calling me boring LOL! Yes, it's very quiet but I would assume it has to do with weather, activities, vacations - also I firmly believe lowering the paying has taken away some incentive to spend a lot of time here.

It has given me more incentive to write. Have to prove to myself that I can make that lower payout every month.

Some of us just don't get here as often as we'd like to. It's the people that keep me here and I visit as often as I can, but I have many other things to attend to as well. I'm always happy when I come on here, to find people I know and can react with.

@DWDavis I do drop in from time to time. I seem to be having a binge here today. Good to see you too, how's the writing going?

@valmnz I just finished the first draft of my next book, and my fifth book recently came out in paperback, so I would say the writing is going well. How are things down your way?

I can't really offer an opinion as I haven't had a lot of free time to spend here like I used to. Maybe it's just the weekend and people have other things to do?

It is slow almost every Saturday as people are out enjoying weekends or doing chores etc. As to boring content, yes I agree most posts are of no interest to me but what I find interesting or what you do or the next person does all varies according to taste and that's why I always stress variety of all subjects and topics. It's the same situation on all such sites in my experience.

@marlina I know I am slow. No glimmer of inspiration has crossed my mind for me to post about and I hate to bore people by constantly posting the same thing.

Around here this is just a busy time of year. End of school activities right after Mother's Day and just before Memorial Day.Proms and graduations. People are outside and putting in gardens, etc. I have not found any social site that is greener pastures than here. I do an article or two per day on Textbroker, but that is only when they are available. My lawn is taking a lot of my time.

What is boring to one person may not be boring to someone else. I think it is the time of year where people are spending more time outside or going on vacation.

In most cases, I think lots of members are just busy with their real life just as I have been. I did not go to other sites but have been quite inactive here because I am busy with my Sunday School classes and also in coordinating the upcoming wedding of my sister's daughter.
