    I find that I am spending at least 4-5 hours on MTurk. My earnings are good and I am able to do a lot of HITs. How much time do you spend on MTurk?

    I tend to spend only my free time on mTurk. Sometimes its more, sometimes its less. It has become my stop online after email, instead of playing trivia or games online. :)

    I have been getting about the same amount of time doing actual tasks. Searching for quality tasks can add in another hour or more each day. I try to mix up my day with non CPU activities, job search, and online games.

    I log in every day and see if there are any hits I want to work on. With the rotten internt connection I have right now I am not doing to many hits.

    time wll spent

    I work online anyways so most of my time is spent in front of a pc. But my work on the mturk i can say i spend at least 5-6 hours a day working on it its my version of world or war craft i can't get enough of t. sometimes i can't sleep and i find myself on it. its a good habit to have i guess.

    So far i've only spent about 30 minutes per day on it. I think I can increase this time gradually. I just don't want to get burnt out.

    I usually spend around 30 minutes to an hour for a mere 50 cents! It feels worth it at the time, but I look back and I think "what did I just do?".

    I spend about 8 hours on mturk. From 8.00pm to 5.oopm. I take mtruk seriously. It is my day job,. It pays my bills and I wouldn't want to give it any less attention.

    I probably average about 5 hours a day. It seems like a lot but some days if I don't feel like it, I'll skip a day.

    I spend like three hours a week on mTurk. Generally, I check every day for hits I like, but I don't spend much time if I don't see anything appealing.
