Have you written a MyTake on here?

So I've been on this site for four years now and I never have. I think mostly because I would never know what to write about. Though I have been toying with an idea for one recently.

For those who haven't: Would you ever write one?

For those who have: How many have you written? Do you enjoy writing them? And is there any advice you would give fellow Gaggers who haven't written any but may want to in the future?

  • I've written 40 mytakes since I've joined gag. I did get editor at one point but after getting editor was when I couldn't think of anything to write about. So I ended up losing it, and now I write when ever I get a good idea and can focus. Still I don't think I'm good at writing them at all.

    The most comments I ever gotten on a mytake. Was when I compared differences and similarities between living in the USA vs Europe. Seems like the best way to get a lot of comments, is to write something that will make people bitch.

    • I have 1 saved in my drafts atm. That way I won't forget the name and what I want it to be about. I just haven't gotten around to working on it and just being a lazy bum at starting it. :D

    • Show All
    • Definitely write it because it will get a lot of peoples attention.

    • I think I will!

  • Several. Though, I have little way of knowing how many read them, or benefit from them.

    I seem to be a magnet for trolls, who scare away everyone else, making it hard for me to follow up my takes with an intelligent discourse with much of anyone. And there's only so many lines I can throw before some of these posters betray that they're just trolling. At which point, I have to let the thread die, lest I exhaust myself feeding them.

    They've really ruined a lot of my attempts at rational debate. But I still try, for the benefit those few who do still read, even if they're too scared to comment.

  • Only one, but no one ever read it apart from two people that sometimes stalk my profile.

    I guess even when people see profiles, they rarely go to the takes. They usually just see the bio and questions.. if that.
    I mention the profile thing, cause it never got promoted and nobody reads those lost ones

  • I'd written several "articles" which were featured on the main page under the old layout. I have since submitted one. I'm working on one right now. I'm hoping to have it up sometime within the next week or so.

    But that needs time and care AND especially my approval, which is really hard to get.

  • Write something from experience or insightful and researched or perhaps something that pevokes the toughts of other gag'ers.. in much the sameway you just asked this question just have a well thought idea with some depthi won't hurt to be a little out of the box and leftfield either mainstream mytakes are looked at like you are just going over old ground

    My love of writing has finally surpassed my fear of negative comments, so I'm gonna keep on writing! :P

  • I haven't written one. I've been asked by a couple people why I haven't. I guess I feel like I don't have anything original to share. It's possible I'll write one, one day!

  • I wrote one, but never got promoted :P

    stupid GAG

    I've seen worse things being promoted, and I am not being arrogant here. I have seen amazing MyTakes, far better than the one I wrote, but I have also seen some very iffy ones -__-

  • I have written three. I intend to write more. I had to take a break from writing them because of school. I have 10 days off starting Thursday and might try to write a few in that time. I enjoy writing them if I have the time.
