the internet everyday? I am finding myself logging on to the internet for longer and longer periods of time now that I run a couple of blogs, plus a forum, and also now that I have starting posting here on mylot. How many hours do you spend on the internet?

I am up with daylight and turn my computer and television on. I watch my morning shows and do dishes while up and down at the computer. I am on with several sites, Mylot, a few emails and check out new things from time to time. I do not just sit and compute however it is on for me for about 7 hours or so. I work evenings in the real world and that gives me balance also with the chores at home that I have.

I really liked the part about the real world. lol My husband is always shaking his head at me about discussions that I tell him about on here. He doesn't understand how I can sit on the computer for longer than it takes to check my emails. ;0)

i am on the internet for about 4 hours a day and am active for about three and half of them, depending on what day it is determines how much time i spend on the internet.

Curiosity has me asking what all you do for those 3 hours? Do you spend them mostly at mylot? I find myself only spending about an hour a day at mylot now otherwise I spend most of it doing emails and blogging, writing articles, etc...

marlyse, I know what you mean, not a millionaire ,yet, but things could be worse. I just keep plugging away. lol Sunlight does seem to help me too when my eyes start bugging out. Must be the natural light.

Yes, it sure does fly by sometimes. :) I have sat down in front of the computer for just a 'second' and finally got off about 3 hours later! lol

No I don't get online every day .. sometimes it can be days or weeks .. depending on what else is happening in our life. When I do get online I will check the emails .. then come here to mylot for a little bit .. see what discussions there are that might be of interest to me. What there is I will make a response to .. sometimes I will start my own discussions .. generally only do that though when I know I will be around most days for the coming week .. cannot see any point in starting a discussion if I cannot check the responses .. at least every couple of days at the longest .. much prefer to check them every day though. I probably spend about 2 hours at a time on the internet .. sometimes it might be up to 5-6 hours for the day in total .. it will be in bits and pieces though .. not all in one sitting. I know some people spend hours on the internet .. I am not one of them though .. have too much else to do generally. Today I will spend about an hour or so here .. it is early morning now and I am waiting for a truck to arrive .. then I will be off to work with a load for the city .. so just filling in the time till then. Might as well earn a few cents .. that's the way I am thinking right now.

sounds like you are a busy man. lol I understand the not wanting to start discussions that you are not going to be around to respond to though. That is just being nice to other users. At least it shows that you are not in here just for the money. lol Thank you for the response, much appreciated.
