I think I spend about 6 hours of time on a computer each day. I need to use it for my job. I am an artist and sell my art on the internet and so i use my computer to update my websites and market my work. :)

I'd love to check out your sites. I too use the computer and websites/blogs to promote my work as a writer.

I spend a lot of time on the computer.. As I am a computer pro, my life revolves around the computer only.. I need the computer for all my work as well for my time pass.. I download and watch a lot of movies on my computer, and also like playing games on it.. Normally, on weekdays, I spend 10-12 hrs a day on the computer which include both at work and at home, and on weekends, it reduces to 5-6 hrs per day, which is only at home...

I spend about six hours on the computer, not all at the same time, but intermittedly between housework, walks, cooking, and watching TV. I am a writer so I start writing my novel in the morning, have breakfast, go on myLot, take a walk, have lunch, read a bit, and am back on it until around four when I watch the Food Network. I really have not set a timer to see the exact amount of time and on some days, it might only be three or four hours. Since I need the money, it is for work.

Defintely if your purpose is to make money online then obvisouly you'd be spending more time and it would most definetly be justified, i am on what i consider for myslef a great deal of time and im usually on for hobby and enjoyment reasons searching the web games and what not but with my busy stay at home mother life style i look forward to the time i get on the pc to just "get lost" and i too dont do it all at once its usually in between meals, the childrens bath times and naps etc. thanks for your response

Wow, that's a great question. I would say that all together I spend at least 8 hours at the computer a day, except on weekends. I use it mostly for writing and research. But I also have online earning programs that I am involved in, then add in e-mail, lol. I am freelance writer and a stay at home wife. The kids are grown, but taking care of the house and the yard also take a chunk of time. I usually work in shifts...several hours on the computer, several hours doing other chores. I used to play games, but don't have time for those anymore it seems. So, for me, my computer is both a work necessity and a hobby.

It really depends on what all I've got going on that day and whether I'm working on a piece for a deadline, or even just an article for Associated Content. I would say on average I spend around 6 hours or so online everyday. Most of it is spent doing surveys, writing, or recently playing games so I can win my husband's Christmas gifts. I also play netwinner in the background anytime I'm online.

I use my computer mainly for downloading purposes. I am just trying to avail the unlimited connection we have which is quite expensive. I download music, softwares, reviewers, books, audio books, movies and documentaries which are entertaining and informative. Well, since it will take hours to days to finished downloading I have to left the computer on and checked it once in a while. While I'm downloading I will listen to the music or the audio books or watched those movies in my collections. It saves a lot of money but time consuming. It's pretty much addicting but it's fun because I can share some of my downloads to other people. I don't know exactly how much time I spend but if I'm just at home I can spend the whole day LOL.
