I know many people that spend a great amount of their time on the computer, including myself. Why do you do it? Is it for fun? To avoid something? To earn money? To learn something?

I have been hooked on computers since 1986 and started my first computer consulting business in 1987. At that time I became a computer instructor and have never looked back so I would say that the time I spend on computer is to make a living. I do have fun on my computer as well. I now have just over 20 blogs on the go as well and have put my computer training career on the shelf and work from home. Life is good, isn't it, when we can do what we love and make money these days.

Well, I do a lot of studying online which requires me to use my Macbook a lot. I also sometimes play games online with my friends. I use the computer for mylot and for printing stuff, for blogging and to earn money online at a few sites. At mylot, I do learn a lot of things that I never thought I would learn.

For working, I have to spend 8 hours on the computer every working day. After working, the only reason is spending the time, because I have nothing to do at night.

dancedance123, I spend time on my computer for many reasons. One - I chat with friends; Two - I take online courses; Three - I search to find information (whatever it may be); Four - I enjoy learning and the Internet is a great learning tool.
