For those who succeed in starting very popular threads out there consistently: How did you do it? Do you see a pattern of any kind? Tips for improving discourse or just flooding the site with well-constructed threads on relevant and thoughtful topics?
I haven't started a lot of successful threads, and I can tell you why.
1. Most of my topics are fairly bland.
2. My writing style is not particularly engaging.
3. I don't put too much thought into creating threads.
4. I put little outside research into them.
5. Often I'm not that interested in what I have to say.
Although you can't really correlate writing to functions, I'm going to go ahead and do it, and say that most of my threads are just Ti. Sometimes I throw a little generic Fe in there for grease (like in this one, one of my better jobs if I do say so myself), but generally there just isn't much there in terms of either style or substance.
My own theory is that the best threads either touch on an issue important to lots of people (Fi connection) or they have relevant information (Te research). Preferably both.
If you haven't had much success creating threads either, pitch in your ideas on why it hasn't worked. Give me a list of five things you do badly.
If you have had success creating threads, give me whatever you have for me.
