Aloha Friday - How Much Time Do You Spend Blogging?


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend.  As I sit here wishing I was in Hawaii right now, I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question today.

Here goes:

How many minutes or hours do you spend on average per day blogging?  And that's in total, could be reading posts, writing posts or answering emails.

Personally, I average about 3 hours per day with the majority of that late in the evening after our daughter has gone to bed and my husband is watching sports.  He sits on the couch and I sit right behind him on the computer where I can easily turn around and see that "once in a lifetime score" he wants to share with me.

I usually take weekends off to rest my hands because of carpal tunnel syndrome, but I'm off and on during the days I'm blogging so I'm not even sure how many hours I'm on here.

Probably two hours a night reading (hey, 130+ blogs is a lot to keep up on) and about an hour a weekend writing my posts (not counting my NaNo posts).

Tammy said...

First I have to say that Blueviolet must be on 24/7! She is EVERYWHERE!!!

I am on way too much...2-3 hours in the morning. On and off in the afternoon and then 2-1/2 hours in the evening.

I've never really kept track of how long I spend blogging. Since I follow so many blogs, I read through stuff late at night while watching TV and even using my iPhone when I have down time. I'm not sure I want to know how much time I'm really spending on it...

Owen's Mom said...

Far too many! Lol. I also blog at night after the kiddos are in bed. I also try to do some maintenance mid day. What can I say? I don't get out much anymore with young kids.

I never really kept track of my time. Some days I'm on for hours, and other days not at all. It depends on my work schedule, family and life.

My blogging is so erratic of late, that I can't even guess.

Auntie E said...

Spurts of time for me. Some days I could spend 4 hours reading and others I don't even go on. Lately I have been busy making, making, making (jewelry) so I have hardly been online!

What a great question.. and very good answers of the many comments you have.

I don't work outside the home, I have been suffering from an auto-immune illness called Fibromyalgia, among with many other health issues for many many years now. So I sit on the computer writing my reviews or giveaways... about 8 hours. I have taken that and made it my "job" so, it takes all the characteristics as a job would. Breaks, lunch, that sort of thing. Then once 8 hours is up... I'm off work.. LOL

I enjoy blogging, I call myself a compulsive blogger.. I enjoy talking with my online friends quite a bit too.

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

It varies with me. Some days I don't spend anytime but there are other days I spend up to 6 hours blogging. So go figure.

Anywhere from 0 to three hours a day. And most of the time is spread throughout the day - done when I need a 5 minute or 30 minute break.

Stacy Uncorked said...

Way too many to keep track of...my housework is suffering! LOL!! Some days I'm more sporadic than others depending on what else needs to be done. But I usually take the weekends off so I can give my family undivided attention. ;)

I spend way to much time on face book, blogging and email!! I spend about 30 minutes or a little more when I get home from work and then after supper my husband and I watch tv while I check out blogs etc. I do need to cut back because I am not reading books and that is my first love. Don't know how though cause I love reading so many blogs!

simplycathi said...

Two to three hours blogging, perusing blogs and surfing the net...way too much time!

I'm too scared to even think about it - waaaaaaaay too much, I can tell you - more time visiting than writing.
