Many of us spend many hours each day on the internet. I do have to spend hours a day on workdays doing market research related to my work. Internet has become the information highway these days, and is an excellent way for information research. Over the weekends, I have more time for personal needs, emailing to friends, myLotting, and so on. What about yourself ? What keeps you on the internet mostly ?

Emails helps so much in keeping in touch with friends and relatives around the world, isn't it ? I rarely send snail mails these days. Wherever internet facility is avaiable, I communicate by emails only. Fast and convenient.

Hello everyone, I spend many hours every day online. At first it was just my addiction to facebook and checking e-mails and palying online games. Nowadays I promote myself as an actor online and my sideline businesses as a mobile nail technician and a body shop at home consultant to try and pay the rent and bills. I have recently started blogging and am researching ways to earn an income online so I can spend more time on my acting career. I am on the way to learning all the possibilities of myLot as well. While I'm online I also listen to bbc iplayer radio shows.

That's very good. You have a business online. Do you have a business website of your own too ? I have been thinking about having a website too, but haven't got it yet.

I use internet for information and making plans mostly, except work. For example, when I want to travel to a new place, I ususally search the location, the transportation, the scenary spots, the food etc. first, and decide when to go and make detailed plans. Then I think is browsing news. I don't have the habit of reading newspaper, so internet is a good way for me to know other people's life and the things are happening in the world.

Yes, indeed, one can find a broad range of information for different needs. Certainly very helpful for travel planning. When I visit new places, I do the information searches too.

I am always online and the time is faster than when you are offline. What I do is I surf the net, I use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Mylot (I consider mylot a social networking site lol). I visit some forums and some "earn online" sites. For me, fifteen hours a day is not enough to do everything I want in the web.

Learning online is very good. One can choose the subject one likes to learn, and one can do at own's time too. That is the advantage of online learning. MyLotting is a way to learn too.

I do spend a lot of time working and surfing on the internet. You have some problem with the internet connection ? Is it because of the ISP or your computer ? You might want to check what the cause is.

I love to write poems and articles, so I find time to write for online sites like expertscolumn, triond, wikinut etc; i love meeting new people through facebook although now I am a little cautious because one fellow got a little jerky-hence i have done security measures.

That's wonderful that you like writing poems and articles. Writing has been my favorite hobby too, since my college years, articles, short stories, etc. But, not poems. I do not have the skill for writing poems. Have a nice day !

Last year I studied online and I took an online psychology course. It was very nice to study that way, because it gave me a lot of freedom and I was able to study any time that I chose as long as I had access to the internet. I would like to take other online courses in the future, but right now I use the internet in order ways. I like to write long emails to my online friends and I like to participate in different kinds of online discussions. I think that is a great way to learn something new and I enjoy reading about other people's opinions and experiences. I also like to visit online galleries because I am interested in art.

I got addicted with wordpress a few years back, and then mylot came along and I was super crazed. I joined facebook and reconnected with old classmates, friends, and relatives. The internet had given a whole lot of wonderful communication with people from all walks of life. Probably virtual but this internet is as real as our world can get now.

It is certainly very impressive that you have ten earning sites. That would keep you quite busy, wouldn't it ? It is very good that you are earning while spending time on the internet.
