    So, I might be the only one? Maybe not, but I make websites to try and keep me from being board all the time.

    Sometimes, I will sit in front of the computer and just not have anything to do, and I will just change the look of my website for the hell of it. Or just start another website :/ And then I lose track of what websites I created lol

    I even add stuff to my current websites like advertising, games, chat, etc just to have something to do.

    What is the easiest way to not have it happen? Other then games?

    Perhaps you should start a web design company and take on clients looking for web development & design work?

    When that happens it's time to step away from the computer and do something else until you alleviate that boredom. Try baking some cookies when you get bored :eek:

    Boredom? I want boredom! I guess you're not married and you don't have kids... :)

    Well, I think you're lucky to have some time to learn new skills or to try new hobby, go out, get crazy with friends...
    Or concentrate on developing your web designing business.
    Or, as Kinlee said, try to bake some cookies. :)

    All these useful post, and yet I'm still doing it. But now, I found time with my darlin girlfriend. The sweetest women in the whole world. I promised to spend the whole weekend with her and to stay away from online activities... As easy as you may think it is, i still do it... But not as much because I am trying to keep my promise. I love her a lot, and I like this website there is people talking :) Thanks for the input!

    You have a girlfriend......the last thing you should be is bored. ;)


    I fall into a routine of checking & responding to mail. This involves delivering orders and whatnot. Once that's done I go do offline activities. Just have a to-do list so you're excited when you're finished! Treat yourself to stuff when you accomplish what you wrote out.
    The worst thing to experience is 'nothing to look forward to".

    Use your web development skills to make websites and use affiliate links on them :). Your habit is a good one and if you could somehow manage it and break it into projects or tasks I think you could be very lucrative. Get a browser extension that manages time and tasks.

    Well obviously you have too much free time. Fill it with what you love, find something worthy of yourself and get excited doing that.

    I know the felling of boredom very well, I experienced it every day in school.

    What I do is I turn everything off in my room, about 30 minutes before (maybe) going to sleep and review everything in my head, sometimes I come up with new ideas and write them down or immediately start doing them. That gave me a lot of sleepless nights.

    You are getting bored because you are just half way through. You have picked an interest and worked through it, you seem to be a web designer. Now it's time to find new mates who also like web design who you can hang out with, talk about web design and also work together on it.
    BHW is probably not the best place to find them, you need to start from your circle of people you know, branch out and see how far you come.

    Just like with me, I started getting interested in stock market and I had no one to discuss it with and after a little work I found someone. I do not attend economy classes and I'm in a totally different major.

    Try also to find different interests/hobbies, that will increase your chances of finding new interesting people and staying busy.
