ActiveRain is usually "on" when I'm online....it's a better place to be for me than in front of the television.   That said, the cumulative number is probably a couple of hours per day.

1-2hrs lately but it is sporatic so hard to say exactly. I check in in the morning for a few minutes like right now. Then I check the questions throughout the day when I am waiting in line or picking up my kids, etc. I read blog posts and comment a couple at a time between other projects and appts. And then at night I spend some time reading blogs, writing mine catching up on questions and comments while I watch a show or two. I spend more time now than I probably will after I hit 500,000 if I am totally honest. Right now I am trying to get up to #2 in my area and get a free account :-) -Kasey

I am new to AR and am finding myself spending quite a lot of time here.  I spend at least an hour in the morning and then usually some time in the afternoon. There is so much information to absorb and much to learn so I feel like it is time used well. I expect as my needs change, I will spend less time, but I know AR will continue to be a fantastic source of information, encouragement and support.  Have a great weekend!

It is hard to caculate.

For example at this very moment I am creating a video and searching for images and chroma keying. At the same time I look to see if the flag is red. Based on the number adjacent to the flag I could stop what I'm doing and engage.

What that means is the log may suggest I lurk on AR 24 hours a day.

Ok, time to do the overlay.

I dedicate 30 minutes every morning, longer on Sundays and then from there it varies on the day and my access. I often participate from my phone instead of going to Facebook or other distractions. So I know I'm here 3.5-5.0 hours per week. I read a lot here too, so probabaly longer?
