Creative Ways to Spend Your Time Online

We’ve all been there, time on your hands, sitting online searching for things to do and all you can come up with is to check your social media account or fall into a Google wormhole. A Google wormhole, for those who aren’t aware, is when you begin searching for something like ‘when was Buckingham Palace built?’ and before you know it you have clicked on so many links that you arrive at an article about how mink fur is made. The point that I am trying to make is that many of us waste the power of the internet when we are sitting online and here are some creative ways in which you can spend your time on the internet.

Set Up a YouTube Channel

Instead of wiling away hours watching old 70s rock clips or watching animal fights on YouTube why not flip the camera around and set up cool channel like Peter Benedict.You can make your own videos, do some video editing or share some of your favorite videos for the World to see. If you have always dreamed of being a star of the screen then why not shoot a video of yourself doing something funny or having a rant and upload it, you never know, you could be a star in the making.

Play Retro Games

If you were a fan of the old 90s games consoles like the Sega Mega Drive and the Super Nintendo then ether is some good news for you, you can still play those old games online. That’s right, you don’t need to search through the dark corners of your closet in order to find the old games, they are all beautifully presented online and you can wile away hours playing games like Super Mario, Streets of Rage and Shinobi.

Start a Blog

You don’t need to be too technically gifted in order to start a blog, on the contrary as there are some great websites out there that allow you to buy a domain and have handy and helpful guides for making your website look beautiful. Once you have decided on the theme of your website and have given it a sleek design you can start uploading content like pictures, videos and articles for the World to see. Make sure you set up a social media page for your website so that you connect with people and start getting some traffic on your website.
