    How much time do you personally spend on the forums each week...

    Forums are a great source of information and sharing ideas with your peers but spending too much time talking and not enough time working won't get you anywhere..

    ever heard the saying "all talk and no action", or maybe some of it's synonyms...

    all booster, no payload
    all crown, no filling
    all foam, no beer
    all hammer, no nail
    all hat and no cattle
    all icing, no cake
    all lime and salt, no tequila
    all mouth and no trousers
    all shot, no powder
    all sizzle and no steak
    all wax and no wick

    Personally I haven't had much time to spend on the forums lately and I would put my hourly forum browsing down to about 2-3 hours a week.

    so how much time do you spend on the forums vs time spend actually working. I'd love to hear your replies.

    I got to BHW a few times per day (randomly) ... I usually scroll down real fast on a few of my favorite sections (bh/wh seo) of this forum, if something catches my eye, then I make a post and then move on to other things.

    Back in summer I used to read BHW all day long, however, now it is mostly 1-2 hours a day. Also, I mostly read forums using my cell phone whenever I am waiting for somebody or on a bus.

    Too much time... sometimes I get caught into reading 1 MORE thread... just a pretext not work on what I'm supposed to do.

    Forums are always open in my browser and can't really say exactly how much time I expend but I guess would be around 15-20 hours a week.

    To be honest, I used to spend like 4-5 hours on forums and seeing people's success stories...

    That's not going to cut bros... Make your own success story but implementing on what made them successful.

    I, now only open forums on my mobile while on my bed (most of the time) just to see what's happening...

    Else time, I spend on doing work.

    See my history, I think I made my last post 1-2 months back I think.

    Go take action :) Not saying this to OP but to everyone who is reading.
