I have been spending alot more time online looking up websites, spending my time here at mylot, and teaching myself on alot of the ptc, gpt sites, etc... I have never spent so much time on the computer except when I worked in the office field before I became a full time mom... since I am a full time mom, and homemaker, and have made a goal of working online at home this year (and from now on)... I am on the computer on and off all day long.. I will start as early as 9 am, and I usually am up til 11 pm... not on the computer all day, but I get on for an hour here and there (as my living room and kitchen are connected I am between both of them and can get on or off at any minute...LOL how many hours do you spend online on your money making sites? and which one do you spend the most time at?

I am online from early in the morning till late at night. Some days though I have to just walk away and do something else, like watch television or clean house, lol. I spend most of my time writing articles for clients. Seems like the internet marketing business is still booming and people need content. I make a part time wage from my time online so it helps pay the bills.

I try to spend atleast a couple of hours online an evening to wind down after work. It's get great to discuss matters that are not your own. Good to escape.

I have only focused on a few right now, if I try to many I will burn myself out... I take a chance on the ones everyone says is good and they show proof of payments.. those ones I stick with for now.. some are slow earning, but I am new to it all so it is ok for me.. I have a few in my profile that I go to everday... you can try some of them if you wish. thanks for responding and good luck with what you find.

I am not able to spend much time on the computer on all days because there are others in my house using it. If i get the use of computer then i spend a lot of time on it, may be the entire day, taking break only to complete my other jobs and house work. But on a normal day i get to use it only for an hour or two at the most and i have to make the most of it...

I spend one to two hours a day but really depends on the day, some days I do not visit any of the sites I work full time and I am also a single parent to my daughter so I have a busy schedule; only manage to squeeze it in in spare time at work or after I've done the bedtime... It's more of a hobby so I do it when I will enjoy it like watching TV or listening to music..

Even I spend around two to three hours everyday in online money making sites. I visit myLot and Helium mostly coupled with three more sites which I don't go so frequently. Its becoming more and more difficult to spend time online as now I have taken up private coaching students as my part time work after college. Oh its tough run.Hope we can all get the worth of time online.Have a nice day!

I am a brand new user to myLot and so far I like it. I'm sure I will be on this for more than 3+ hours a day. Hopefully, I will be able to fulfill my goal of 30+ posts each and every day.

I work a full time job so my hours online are not many. However when I get home and on the weekends I'm on pretty regular. I try to post about ten posts a day. Sometime I just start about seven or eight discussions. Sometime I just take the time to respond back to my posts. I also sell on ebay so when I have something to sell on line there I will flip back and forward to see if I have any sales or who is watching what. I also work on Helium and AC these are my writng sites. I check them about twice a week sometime more to see how I doing and where my articles rate. So, I would say that I'm online anywhere between 10 to 15 hours a week.

I lost my job last december. I spent a good part of december getting ready for Christmas,cleaning my house and doing stupid things on the computer like playing games. By January I needed to find a focus as my house was in order, holidays were over and my jobs prospects were slim. I always wanted to write, I needed a creative outlet to preserve whatever sanity I could. I discovered eHow and found that I really enjoyed it. I had a lot of difficulty with figuring out certain things because it is easy to surf the internet and send email but I never had formal training in computers. I have had a lot to learn (and still learning). I spend a different amount of time every day doing ehow, my lot and bukisa. I am not really set in how much time. I have a 13 year old and a husband that won't allow me to become "obsessed" with the computer. I need to treat it more like a "job" and I think it will actually become a source of income. Right now I think I pretty much spend no more than 1 hour at a time online but I am on and off. Always done by 9 p.m.
