Are Domainers Workaholics? Let’s Find Out!

Posted on 02 December 2009 by Andrei

Just how much time do YOU spend in front of the computer doing something which (in one way or another) has to do with domaining (yep, reading blogs and/or forums also counts)?

Aside from answering the question I’ve asked above (let’s call it question 1), be a sport and answer a few more:

2) Do you make money exclusively by buying/selling domains and by monetizing type-in traffic? If not, what else do you do in order to put food on the table?

3) Do you develop websites? If so, how much time do you spend doing things which have to do with development (again: reading blogs and/or forums counts)?

4) Do you provide online services? If so, how much time do you need to invest each day in order to keep everyone happy (customers and employees if you have any)?

5) Do you have an offline business or a job? If so, how much time do you spend “at the office”?

6) And, finally, how much time do you usually spend working each day (domaining/domaining+development/domaining+running an offline business/domaining+job/whatever)?

In my case:

1) About 2 hours/day

2) Nope, I also earn money by developing websites and providing online services

3) Yes, I spend about 3 hours/day doing stuff which has to do with development

4) Yes, I spend about 4 hours per day doing stuff which has to do with providing online services

5) Nope, I make money exclusively online

6) 2 + 3 + 4 -> about 9 hours/day

I think it’s always productive to find out how others organize their time and am looking forward to reading your comments. Come on, don’t be shy 😉

    I do a bit of everything other than services. Hard to tell how much time I spend for each activity but other than my job I spend 3 or 4 hours online doing business.

    1 – sometimes not even 30 minutes
    2, 4 and 5 – no
    3 – sometimes even up to 8 hours
    6 – 8 hours

    An hour a week domaining (I’m not going to even factor it in) plus usually 6 hours a day developing my websites and 4 designing for others. So 10 hours plus a few minutes 🙂
