Thread: Wasting too much time browsing forums

  1. #1

    Unhappy Wasting too much time browsing forums

    Hello,
    I'm in a stupid situation at the moment. I got addicted to webmaster forums, before it was valuable since you could sell signature links but these days these aren't worth a lot anymore. Instead of these posts I think I could be earning more when writing articles & blog posts instead...

    Do you also have this problem? Does someone have a solution for me?

    That is the reason I have dual monitors.

    One monitor is strictly for work and the other is for things like reading forums and things like that.

    That way I always have the work monitor nagging me to remind me I am supposed to be doing something to make money.

    Sometimes you need breaks in the day like this.

    If you worked 24/7 you'd probably kill yourself.
    Consider webmaster forums a somewhat productive source of entertainment.

    I've found an alternative to post on forums. I'm going to start reading ebooks right now, since I once invested all the money I earned by a vacation job to tons of SitePoint books it's now time to start reading them

    True, but the problem is I'm awake at around 5 in the morning so I can leave on time for school. It starts at 8 o'clock and it's done at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. I come home at around 5.30 in the afternoon and then do homework. At 6 o'clock I start posting forums while I'm constantly telling myself I'll work on the sites after that last post. But it keeps coming. Then at 11 o'clock I really write my last post and go to bed. Then I'm just thinking about what I did for myself and not for others and unfortunately there is nothing I can think of Ofcourse I've helped hundreds of people in those hours, but it didn't make me earn anything while I could've written articles or do some link building instead

    It's really not that hard just do some work before you come on webmaster forums. As far as I know you are not offering any service at the moment so you have no real reason to come here besides enjoyment. Which can come later on in the day.

    Just do something like no adsense checking or forum posting/checking until you have 2-3 articles done, then set a time limit of an hour, then 2 articles, then an hour, then 1 article, then go crazy til you crash I think I need 3 computer screens now btw

    Hi,

    Are you logged in to all 20 forums right now? You are spending half your time checking the forums. I know people will dislike me for saying this but log off the forums set a time limit each day and stick to it.

    Self-discipline is one of the main keys to success.
