What do you mostly do on your computer?

January 21, 2010 6:23am CST
Hi, mylotter? My question to you is very simple- what do you mostly do, when you are sitting on the computer? Do you watch movies, listen to music, posting in mylot, earning some other extra money or something else. The most of my time on the computer I spend in searching for some good movies and watching them! Now it is your turn! SHARE!!!

I usually spent a couple of hours in online earning website. While checking them I play some browser games. When I finish with this I usually read information that concerns me. For fun, I like reading e-books or some good manga and watching movies/tv series/anime. It depends on my mood. There are really a lot of things to be done on the internet, so I usually don't confine myself with just one of them... I like diversity
21 Jan 10
Yeah, you are rigth! there are many things to do on the internet! Well, you must be some serious online money maker, when you spend several hours on the earning sites. But I don't think reading e-books is very good, because it burdens the eyes too much and you can have some problems after some time! You better read some real, paper books!

I am not that serious money-maker at all. This month I don't think that I will get even $100 in my paypal account, which is the sad thruth. And when I say a couple of hours I mean a couple of hours (2-3 most) not several (which would be a bit more than I could take). I know that reading e-books harms the eyes, but I am addicted to reading and ... you know... the paper books cost more money and when I want to read something I don't bother to wait a whole year to be translated and published

yes, you are right again. Real books cost more money, that's why i haven't buy a book from about 5-6 years. I read only these ones, that my friends give me. And for the online earnings, I think 100$ is good, for now I can only dream to make 100$ in a month. P.S. can you share with me how do you make 100$ per month?

I have a list of sites that I go to that I can earn points for gift cards, or get cash. I do lots of surveys.

hmmm. An interesting idea. Can you tell me something more about these gift cards, because I have seen a lot about it on the web, but never try to have some or to send one to some of my friends or beloved ones!

Most of the sites that I do are only for people in the US. The gift cards are for stores and restaurants here.

~ Hi, elly! I also use my computer to talk with my relatives, but unfortunately I don't have any web-camera, so I don't see them, i can only talk to them. I also watch movies a lot, because i am addicted to it and I think there are something fun in our life. Tonight I will watch two movies, because it is friday and tomorrow I have a day-off. I will watch "the love guru" and "the new cinderela story"~

Hi! I also play games on this social network, but I only play "happy aquarium" and "who has the biggest brain" tomorrow I hope I will reach a new level on happy aquarium and will be one of the best players among my friends! I play it 3-4 times per day, because There are a lot of things to do- like feeding, cleaning, training etc. I don't do any works on my computer!

Well, aside from earning online money, I am playing in facebook account. I am so addicted in their applications that I can spent my whole day just playing there like poker and cafe world. As a remedy to my addiction, I set my own time on when to play and when to work.

There are certainly tons of things I will do when I sit in front of my computer, in this case, my laptop. Because I don't have any DVD player and TV in my room, I always watch movies in my laptop. I also don't have another game console, so I always play game in my laptop. In addition to this, I have documents to edit, and finally, internet always my second 'home'.

HI! then we are "soulmates", I also have a laptop, also have no TV and DVD player in my room, even in my house( because I live for rent) and I also spend the most of my time in watching movies and playing games! Which is your favorite computer game, that you play? Say some interesting movie that you have recently watched- some horror or adventure movie!

The most I can do when I sit in front of my computer is to surf for a cause. I am interested in finding something that is suitable for me to make some or more extra money for me... Surfing is one of the best things to earn money. That is why I am surfing everyday and spend my time to make some...
24 Jan 10
HI! well, how much time do you spend on surfing and searching for new online incomes? Do you spend 2-3 hours a day or more? And have you found some opportunities, that can worth your time, that you have spended on the net? I ask, because many people are not satisfied with their online incomes, and quit very fast!

Hi nautilus, there are several things that I will usually do when sitting in front of my laptop. Reading latest news as well as news related to trading and investment. Checking the mail box to whether there is any important emails to deal with. Of course I will never miss to log in mylot to read and to write posts. In the morning and afternoon of week days, I will keep on monitoring the real time stock market. Might be there is any opportunity for me to make some wee extra profit Besides I like to kill my bored time playing computer games. I rarely watch movie on the laptop screen. I prefer to watch them on broader tv screen Happy postinhg and have a nice day

Thanks for willing to share your feeling and opinion here nautilus It sounds that your mood is easily affected by the miserable events. So to avoid this you prefer not to read any of them. It’s nice to know that you are no longer indulging in playing computer game anymore. Actually if too obsess with this is really time consuming. I play game when feeling bored with the work and this can refresh me and make to feel energetic again. I mostly read the headlines of the latest news to know what have happened around us. I would like to get further information if I really want to know the news with immediate concern to us. I like to read entertainment and sports news as well. Frankly speaking I pick news regarding to those celebrities I have interest solely Take care
26 Jan 10
Hi! Yes, I am really affect from all the bad things, which happen every single day, all over the world and I hate watching news on the TV( I really have no TV), because every day the news start with the worst thing, that happened on that day, and that is on all the news on all channels. Why just once these idiots don't show something really positive, something happy, well we also must know what happened, we must understand the pain of the people, but let us first know, about the really happy things. that's why I hate watching news. P.S. I like your point of view

Thanks for liking my point of view nautilus . I feel so comfortable and relaxed to chat with you here. From the great number receiving in this topic shows that you have excelled yourself this time, well done Besides, I appreciate your way of taking good care of your discussion by adding comments in all the responses nicely. I saw the notify email that you had left a comment in my post when checking the mailbox this morning. I accepted the friend request once I see it. Lol... I wished to know more about my new friend I then paid a visit to your profile. I’m really happy to meet such a nice young friend from Bulgaria. After referring Wikipedia I then know you are from a country in south-eastern Europe. I had spent a nine day vacation in Turkey at the end of 2008. I think Turkey is one of the adjacent countries in your place. Let's be always happy by reading more Happy News! Take care and happy posting

23 Jan 10
HI! What online business do you have? do you sell things on internet or you have some other business? my internet connection is also not very fast, but I am happy that I can download the things i like and need- like movies, songs, texts, photos, softwares. The most of my spare time, i spend in watching movies, like I already told in the beginning of the discussion. I watch many movies, because I am addicted to it!

well, it is not a blog it is a site! I don't have to pay anything, and you also don't have to install any programs. You just need some skills on HTML, but if you don't have any I could help you if I have time, because now I work on my site and don't have much time!

Hi Nautilus, I used to do the following: in the computer During weekdays in the office i write reports, check my email and response to messages. During break time i play computer games, do mylot and chat with friends. at home i surf the net for my kids homework, spend more time on mylot and, brief time with facebook and yahoo messenger. view our family pictures old and new photos.
22 Jan 10
Hi! But why don't your children search alone what they need for their homeworks, or you don't want to allow them to spend much time on the PC. I think it is good for the kids, if they don't spend much time on the PC, it will be very good, if they don't have even a PC, because they get addicted to it very fast and forget that they have friends, who wait for them out side!

it's a different case for my kids. they need my support...our support in working out their assignments over the net. though they are good in computers they have autism. both my sons have developmental delay and they have autism. so, we are always there to guide them friend even playing outside with our neighbor friends!

~ Yes, now I understands you. It is good what you are doing and I think all the parents who have kids with some problems must take care of them and not leave them in the orphanage. You are very good parents for me! ~

hi nautilus.. i spend my time either watchin movies which is the max ofcourse lolz.. if nt i spent time updatin myself about happenins around d wrld or read ebooks.
27 Jan 10
hmmm, the e-books. don't you feel your eye "tired" when you read e-books? i ask you because i don't think it is very good to read an e-book, because it is harder for the eyes, I know they are cheaper than paper books, but I don't read them. Watching movies is also my favorite activity while sitting on the computer, but it gets harder to find some quality movie!

Hi nautilus!^^ If I was answering this discussion years before, I would say that the number one thing I do in my computer is myLotting.^^;; I was so addicted then with myLot. But there came a time that I got kind of tired with it, and I got busy with my work and all that, so I left myLot and I was absent for a long time only peeking in once in a while. And now, I'm back, still, I don't know if this will last. I hope it will.^^ So aside from myLot, the things I usually do with the computer, check my Facebook account, play games like Treasure Madness, Farm Ville, Fish Ville, Sorority Life, Vampire Wars, Farm town.. ^^;; check my emails.. read news.. I do all those while waiting for all my downloads to finish. ^^ I usually download Japanese movies and drama, and some holly wood movies. And then watch them on my computer after the download finishes. ^^
25 Jan 10
Hi! A good response! Well, as I see you are from these people, which don't try to earn some extra money from the internet, and I think that is very good, because I am already addicted to it and I think it will be very hard for me to give up. Well, aside from the online earnings, I also play some games on facebook like happy aquarium and who has the biggest brain! I watch movies every day and sometimes I also watch Japanese horror or fight movies. i like them much!

Hi, Every time I switch on my computer, my priority is to check my e-mail and from there I normally drift to other links and my final task is to shift to daily mail from MyLot. My last task before switching off computer is to play 2-3 games of solitaire.
24 Jan 10
Hi! as I see you don't spend much of your spare time on the computer or i am wrong? because you say, you only check the emails, then check some other sites, 2-3 games on solitaire and then off! what else do you do except the computer? Because nowadays many people spend their spare time in front of it and nobody goes out so often as b years before!

Hi, Yes, u are right. In the morning after sending my son to school, I finish my entire household work and then go for my yoga session. I return at around 11 AM and if I am to buy household items or deposit bills or go to bank, then I am not home before 1 PM. My son comes back at 2.30PM. His lunch, studies, then taking him to golf and during that period doing my gym, well all this takes upto 6PM. Come home took dinner, and then sit on computer. So u see my entire day is gone in doing small-small things. More over, I am not expert in computer and inspite trying for long, hv not been able to find any work on computer. Had I been able to do so, I would hv been able to devote much more time on computer.Anyways thanks for taking interest.
27 Jan 10
well, you have a very interesting daily round. Yoga exercises, golf, that's really great, and I am glad, there are people who don't spend so much time on the computer and making so many interesting things like you. I also want to make some yoga exercises, but in the town where I live, there are no such people, who offer yoga exercises, there is also no golf ground, so I can't practice it too

Most of my time on the computer, is doing Bible studies. I have found some great sites that help to understand the scriptures and their meaning. I have found great commentariers, devotional sites. The compudter is an amazing tool for finding and reaserching. I have also found great sites to order literature and to get free literature for my studies. I have found sites where I can purchase used and new books for my studies. I also do some Pay sites on the computer.

Sorry it took so long to respond. One of the sites I get free booklets from is Our Daily Bread. It is a booklet that is sent out to me every three months. It is found under the same site as it's name. I don't want to post the site so Goggle it and it will give you the information. If you would like just pm me and I will give you some more information and sites. I found a great site with great commentaries and other information too. The list just goes on and on.

My time on my computer is spent here on Mylot, working on my own websites, updating my blogs, creating and updating Squidoo lenses and I used to surf Traffic Exchanges, but have given that up recently. I also spend a lot of time learning about healthy foods and organic gardening and permaculture as those are a big interest of mine at the moment. I am about to start creating some You Tube videos as well. So much to do and so little time!

well, of course there is not enough time for everything, but as I see, he has lot of things to do, and I think that not many people can handle with so many things. Maybe you need some more free time for your work on the PC. Are you working some regular job, or you are a pro online earner and make your income only from the net? Are you studing biology, I ask because you are interested in organic gardening!

Puppynut, I agree. It is really rewarding learning and creating things online. I really enjoy it too! Yes there are certainly some nice people here. I have made some great friends online at other sites too! Hi Nautilus33. I do not have a regular job. All of our income comes from our home business that my wife and I run ourselves. People buy from our website and then we ship the goods out! I am not formally studying anything at the moment, but would like to do a permaculture course part time. We run an Organic Raw Vegan Food business, so the organic gardening is just a natural extension of this! I build Squidoo lenses and blogs to promote my business and other affiliate marketing ventures!
