Are You An Organised Surfer?

No, I don't mean surfing the waves. I mean surfing the net. Do you plan in advance the time(s) you're online or is it different each day? Do you go on the earning sites for hours on end or just a few of them? Do any sites make you go like thisas they are so overwhelming and you don't know where to start? Loquax is guilty of this. Great site; too much on it!! I've been reading about legit sites on PTC Investigations (which is very good if you haven't checked it out already) and, based on some of their findings I've joined a few...mainly those Bux sites I've read so much about. The problem with that is..I'm spending way too much time clicking onto these new sites. Have you seen how many there are? Now, I've only joined a fraction of what is "out there" but if I'd signed for them all I don't think I'd ever get to bed! Don't get me wrong, I'm not sat here thinking, "Oh, I really must earn so much a day." No, if I did that I wouldn't get enjoyment out of MyLot, as an example. Go with the flow I say! How about you? Do you spend many hours on your home computer? Isn't it frightening how the time flies online but not in other things we do..er, like cleaning, which I really must do NOW!

I may well say that I am a regular Internet surfer and I seem to have been bitten with surf.After I was retired from my work,besides taking care of Mum who is 90,every morning I read newspaper and book a little while ,play erhu for an hour or so then help wife to do household chores.From 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.I surf the Internet which is mainly mylot.During it I have to find time to accompany Mum or go for a walk with her.Coming mylot my main purpose is that learn idiomatic English.That is why I make friend with you.Learning English is just a avocation with me, my broken English is a long way off making money with it.

I think your English is fine my friend. I can understand you so I reckon that's progress, right? I find it quite humbling that you have have made friends with me in order to improve your English. How sweet. I, too, learn a lot about different cultures from people like your good self..moreso here than anywhere, which is what makes this site so unique. You must tell me what erhu is, I've no idea.

Thanks a lot! I am ashamed at the praise you have given to me.I have mentioned the erhu before.It is a Chinese stringed instrument with two strings ,as early as the Song dynasty(960 A.D.-1279 A.D.)It had come out. At present,English bears local colour ,for example,American English,Asian English etc.I like to learn idiomatic English.

I'm pretty much an organized person in everything I do. But with a bunch of inorganized people around me, I can't plan much anymore. Earlier, my online activity (including daily mylotting) was streamlined...not anymore. I log on and off as and when I can. But I've made a conscious discussion to come online only when all my chores are done or else I lose track of time here.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean about "losing track of time." Even though there is a clock in the bottom right hand corner of my screen it doesn't always help!! Sometimes I ignore it which isn't a wise thing to do. However, despite this I do ensure that - whatever needs to be done, does get done. After all, the chores don't take up that much time. If I didn't keep on top of them, they would.

I have not surfing so much on the Internet. Each day that I am able to go online, It's myLot, YahooMail and Facebook that usually make my day. But myLot took most of my online hours and brains.

I get loads of emails every day, not all of them spam either!! I don't use Facebook which is just as well because I don't think I have the time!

The only earning site i use on a regular basis is mylot and i don't have any firm plans about when i intend to use the site.i go on mylot in the evenings if i don't have anything else on and i if i have a spare few minutes during the day i try to make a few posts on my phone.

Yes, I still use MyLot the most as it's fun to be here and I like to know what's going on in this worldwide community. I find out more on here than on the news sometimes! This will always remain my favourite site.

I've not been lucky with ebay lately (selling) but I reckon Mum will have better stuff to sell than me. We shall have a "route" around her house when I'm there over Easter.
