    I think it'd be a good idea if members were to share what their average day looks like on BHW. This way, the same sorts of information that we exchange regarding IM methods can be shared in regards to research methodology, routine, and time management on BHW. This is especially effective because they can be applied to each and EVERY method.

    Here are some brainstorming questions:

    How long do you spend per day reading the forums?
    Do you follow journeys?
    Do you follow people?
    How do you balance learning new methods or optimizations for your method with practically trying them out?
    How much of what you read is relevant to your main method, and how much of it is research into methods currently unused by you?
    Do you subscribe to sections that are relevant to your method?
    When do you decide to follow or not follow a thread?

    I'll start (I guess) by saying that I should be more consistent and devote time to reading the forums more than I do. I follow people who are recognized by the community as generally reliable, and try to learn from them what I can. I try my best to respond to every message within 24 hours.

    When researching, I read a lot of things front-end and then take notes to save them for later as references. I use the search bar to find posts relevant to my method, and after I've read a bunch I start using the method. When I'm not reading or applying what I've read, I think of new ways to spin or upscale the method to generate more revenue. I also follow journeys mainly to find out what people did wrong, and not make the same mistake. I'm more often than not the one who knows less in any conversation, so I remember how much I know in relation to other people, and do my best to be humble as much as I can.

    What about you guys? What's your routine look like?

    um no routine for me at all.

    I spent most of my time in the marketplace, 20-30' surf the SEO sections for news and the lounge, SL section for entertainment.

    I spend most of my time either on the homepage or in whitehat SEO section. Homepage is always good for just lookng out for interesting topics to get involved in, whitehat SEO section because that area interests me quite a bit.
    Also spend some time in the marketplace; always looking out for new and interesting services - sometimes to purchase and sometimes just to see what new things are coming up.

    Personally I try to avoid the shitlist section because its just so hard not chiming in when someone is being a total dick :)

    Follow a lot of journey threads because they are interesting, always like reading guides when they are posted, just to see what cool ideas people are coming up with.

    Don't really follow any members in particular BUT I have an idea of who really knows their stuff and so I do always look out for any new posts by those members.

    I would normally troll you horribly for this OP, but I rather like you. So I'll answer your questions.

    How long do you spend per day reading the forums?
    Maybe 2-4 hours a day.

    Do you follow journeys?
    I used to, but I rarely do anymore.

    Do you follow people?
    No.

    How do you balance learning new methods or optimizations for your method with practically trying them out?
    I set aside a certain percentage of time per week for new stuff. As I have my hands in all the cookie jars, I have to focus on my more established business and less on what's on my IM bucket list.

    How much of what you read is relevant to your main method, and how much of it is research into methods currently unused by you?
    Very little is related to my main method or research. I usually browse the forum for laughs or to help people out. If I need help I ask the people I've networked with on here. They're always happy to lend a hand.

    Do you subscribe to sections that are relevant to your method?

    No.

    When do you decide to follow or not follow a thread?
    If I discover information on a method I want to try, I watch the thread. If it's on a subject I find personally interesting, (like the creepypasta thread) I will watch it.

    You guys don't think sharing information like this is productive? For people who already know what to look for and how to budget their time it might not be as effective, but for others, especially those still learning, I think it's importance can't be understated.

    I really don't. I had no problem getting on here and finding what I needed out of this forum. I expect other people to do the same.

    Maybe that's totally unreasonable, but I'm not gonna lie to you son: I'm all out of fucks to give.

    I always go to Homepage, Blackhat SEO and Whitehat SEO sections on BHW. I don't count how many hours as I let it login all the time and doing multitask. I follow a few journeys. I follow some people, mostly Jr. VIP members. I think watch threads are automatically made you subscribed, so yes I did.
