Wow! I've wasted an hour and can't find a good discussion.

I've been trolling here for about an hour, and haven't found many good discussions that I would like to answer. I tried discussions my friends started, new discussions, and discussions from my interests. I only found a couple I wanted to take the time to answer. Just must be one of those days! guess I'll have to give up and just go to bed. Tomorrow is another day!

Those days happen to all of us once in a while estherlou although I can generally come up with something from my friends' discussions. In fact I do have to say that once I check out my own discussions and make a comment to any responses, then I go to those of my friends. I will try to respond to a question from each of them and sometimes really hit the jackpot as a few of them might have some really good discussions going that I have not responded to at the time. Now that is a bonus and makes my day. Failing that, I have a look at the "discussions with no response" as there are often some good ones there that have just been passed by in the general rush of so many discussions being posted. Actually I have not been here very much for the past few weeks, except for popping in for a short time every few days. Sadly everytime I came here I was seeing the same tired old discussions (?) which I was seeing back last year before myLot got rid of them. Cheer up estherlou and I hope that when you return you do find some good discussions to respond to. Of course check out your friends discussions as well as you might just find a real gem in some of them. :)

Yes this happens to me sometimes too, usually when I come back later things has changed and new good discussions has started .. at many times I make an effort to answer my friends discussions even if I'm not personally interested about the topic just to help them out and to return their visit to my discussions..

I also know that feeling. Some days I can't find anything I want to discuss or respond to evern after I have been through all my friend's discussions. Also some are not posting as much as usual. I only recently discovered going through my interest discussions and have picked up a few I didn't see anywhere else. Have a rest and catch you tomorrow.

well. I know that most of the discussion here are not important, so if you only want to make money i recommend you to reply all discussion, but if you want good topics to disccus and fast, the best is to write your owns topics here so you can get worth information

Only an hour?? I spend most of my days here and still I am lucky if I can make 10 posts per day. I have to go through so many pages of topics that are against the rules to start with.. and alot of topics I don't know much about or do't have a worthwhile response to, so I keep searching.

I notice at a certain time of the evening suddenly the majority of the new posts are from india and/or indonesia and I can't follow them. They are referring to people I've never heard of, ditto movies, are written in such broken English that I cannot understand what they are talking about, are obviously copyrighted articles that are copy/pasted or are inane questions like the one I just saw -- are you a boy or girl? At this point, I leave this site.

This has happened to me a few times lately. It seems that the people who usually generate good discussions have either run out of subjects or are simply not posting much lately. The "discussions with no responses" used to be a worthwhile category, but it is offering very little at the moment.

Yes, I've tried going that route also, and just about decided they have no responses because everyone is scrolling past them without stopping.

Excessive or restricted liking of food keeps you hungry most of the time. Some times you have to compromise with the dishes available in the restaurant. You don't get favorite dishes all the time. Lions & tigers don't hunt daily! As such dieting is good for stomach as well as brain & mind too. Select which ever from the above suits to you.

that also happens to me sometimes but what i do is just look at the first page of the discussions and the first page of the mew discussions and if there is nothing interesting all i do is just start uploading pictures so that i can make some money if i cant find many discussions to respond to that day.

You aren't alone in this. I think we all have days where it's harder to find some that we like. It could be our moods, the discussions themselves, or just how we find things. sometimes taking a break or searching whole new areas can help.

That sometimes happens. Last Saturday, I was able to respond to fifty discussion in a couple of hours, and last night I was only able to respond to fourteen. It wasn't that they were bad topics, I just didn't have a response to any of them. Maybe weekends are better for topics.

I feel your pain! I think I'll start a discussion "how often do you pick your nose?" That is what these "discussions" have degenerated to. Not only is it tough to find a good discussion, it is as difficult to come up with good answers! But, like you said, tomorrow IS another day.

Yeah, it does go that way with discussions. You can't never find a good one to talk about at all and when you do, someone else already thought of it.

You're right! I hate when that happens! LOL! It seems that most days it is difficult to come up with an original thought!

u shouldve started a discussion on something that u WOULD want to talk about. that would have been a good thing to do. instead of wasting ur time, next time consider that.

I too experience this from time to time. I am now concentrating on increasing my friends so I can possibly have at least 40 discussions to post to. This is my goal each day, but some days I just can't find anything I want to respond to. I think part of the problem is me, because my brain shuts down and I can't think of anything good to dicuss.

I know what you mean. I don't respond to just anything and sometimes have trouble finding things to respond to. I just get up and leave for a while.

I do know the feeling it happens alot to me. Another member told I cant find one because Im being too picky and I want to answer with just the right thing to say.LOL Im like okay whatever you say. It really just happens to us because if I dont like a discussion Im not going to respond to it. Your right tomorrow is another day. I like that saying alot.
