Did it ever occur to you that you can make money online? How much time of your day do you spend on the Internet? An hour? Ten? 90% of your waking hours? Whatever the number is, and we’re willing to bet it’s a lot, know that you are far from alone in this. According to a new report by ZenithOptimedia, “on average, people spend more than 490 minutes of their day with some sort of media.” That number is expected to rise in the future, and “it’s no surprise that the Internet, particularly in mobile form, is driving this growth. Average daily Internet media consumption has doubled over the past five years, taking share from traditional formats. The internet accounted for 13% of average daily media use in 2010, but is set to reach nearly 30% in 2017.” If almost everything you do, from your job to your social interactions, seems to take place online, then you can understand why these numbers are so high. But you also need to think about how you are using that time online, and if it is really benefiting you. When you are online are you learning something new? Are you sharing your expertise with the world? Are you being entertained? Or are you just wasting precious time?
