I have a pretty routine system.  I log in every morning and then I go to "Recent Posts" and review all new ones for that day, commenting on the ones of interest or where I feel I can contribute.  I would estimate that I spend about 30 minutes per day.

Wayne ...I spend about 1-2 hours a day ....it's my best marketing! It brings me in more business than any other! It took a while to get it going, but once I did it's been non-stop!

Great question!

I spend more time than I should. But it's winter, and that limits my fun outdoor activities somewhat, so I have some extra time. Plus I enjoy it.

Thanks for the input.  I just wondered if I was the only one who spent way more time than I should.  Doesn't look like anyone but Bill is going to fess up on the time.  I bet I spend at least 2 hours a day on the average.

Less than we use to. Other blogs and using AR to boost the kick off the bottom is the shift. To amplify the other posts tended on back in the home town where we live, work, play. The quality of writing here when it becomes just the points the poster is after shows. Feature worthwhile real estate reads and less of the fluff, social or venting on the unrelated.

I try to go on AR every single day.  It really depends on how much work I have, but I attempt to read a few blogs every day and to make a response as well as like some of the other responses if I like what they had to say.  On average I am on 1/2 hour or more each day.  On days I write a blog ... well that is really hard to say because sometimes it takes a long time to put it together.
