WHAT DO YOU DO ON YOUR COMPUTER OR TABLET?


I was wondering what you do on your computer, ipad or laptop other than blogging.
I use Google lots so I should be super informed but most of it goes straight out of my head the minute I close the page, lol
I play scrabble with lots and lots of people often having 20 on the go at the same time as well as family, I suppose you could call me a Scrabble nut.

I also play Solitaire when waiting for the Scrabble people to get back to me.
I follow lots of crochet patterns.
I love Pinterest
I download ebooks and audiobooks from my Library
I often go on youtube of tutorial videos

But wonder just what other people do.

A few suggestions would be welcome, especially with the winter coming.

  2. Other than blogging and reading other blogs, on my laptop I occasionally write stories and letters, access both Google for info and the local library to reserve books, facebook a little to keep in touch with family at a distance and also do family history on ancestry. On my ipad I read books from the library on e reader or buy kindle books and also play spider solitaire:)

  3. I love my laptop! I can hardly stand a day without it. I mostly check emails, read the news, follow blogs, belong to several cat pages on Facebook (love those kitty pictures!) and follow friends, order books from the library, learn stuff from Blueprint and Utube videos, get patterns for knitting from Ravelry, and do almost all of my shopping for both household and clothing. We hardly go to stores any more except for groceries. It's so nice to have the necessities of life delivered right to our door.

  5. I use my phone 75% of the time and my laptop 25%. I prefer the security of a laptop for sorting banking, bill's and emailing etc.

  6. I do a lot of Sodoku and Outspell puzzles (very similar to Scrabble). Listen to music via a streaming service and listen to all the radio programmes I've missed on the BBC website.

  7. I do what you do, but no games. I read on my e-reader, and email and blog, youtube I do excecercise videos and dance or kick around. youtube had any and everything we could ever want to find a tutorial on. I can't think of anything new for you to do. but you will never run out of things to do on what you do

  8. I thought of one thing. I love to use Google Earth to travel all over the world. I pick a place I want to visit. like Paris... go up and down all the streets, like put in Eiffel tower, then drive the streets surrounding it. I love castles in Scotland, have visted them... I have been to London and New York City and San Francisco

  10. I also play a lot of Solitaire! My tablet has the photos I will paint from. The screen can enlarge the bit I want to concentrate on - an eye for example.

  11. I think I have played either Scrabble or Words With Friends with you on Facebook! And I also think you beat me a lot. But I would be up for another game. Speaking of Scrabble, we just bought the very popular game Bananagrams. It is a word game similar to scrabble but without a board. The cast of Downton Abbey love playing it. The letters come in a pouch that looks like a banana. I do Facebook, Pinterest, e-mail, run the church e-mail prayer request line.

  12. I play solitaire, I browse Pinterest, I watch youtube videos. and I'm sure there's more but those are the main ones.

  13. Wow! That's a lot of Scrabble games running at once, Briony! Kudos to you :)

    I can't think of anything that hasn't already been said. In fact, I've gotten some new ideas from the comments. I do read quite a bit of news so I understand what's going on, but I think I remember you saying recently you've stopped following the news because it's too depressing. Sometimes I have to stop for a bit, too. Then after a few days I'm okay again.

  14. I play Mahjong Dimensions...when I am really killing time. But it is also addicting. I do the blog thing, too...and look on pinterest and google for ideas. And watch a lot of Youtube...also, love looking at books on Amazon. OH! One of my favorite things to do is go to Google Earth and explore! Or sometimes just Google Maps...but I so love them...have always liked maps, but these are just the most awesome thing ever. And also get in the mood and spend a lot of time at te Library of Congress...I will get in a mood to look at old photos there. And sometimes I will pick an area and try to find old digital images.

  15. Try " Cardgames.io". Loads of solitaire games, a mahjong solitaire thing, whist ( that I have recently discovered), Yahtzee and many others, but my favourite on there is " Freecell". I was introduced to it about 7 years ago, and just love it......there is an element of chance, but also skill involved!

  16. Blogging of course, and reading other people's blogs. I am a member of two busy facebook groups, Textile Artists Collective, and Waste Not Want Not. Two other groups which aren't so busy. Read a couple of forums, Walking Forum, and Down the Lane, and recently started reading Trucknet Forum. It's surprising what you can find out from Forums. I am on Twitter, don't do much tweeting, read what others are up to. I get most of my news from Twitter and Yoootoooob, there are lots of alternative channels now. Mainstream news is too biased, don't tell the truth, and skirt round anything that might upset someone.

  17. I watch podcasts and catch-up TV on my laptop, I also play candy crush on FB but only at work, lol

  18. I upload photographs, edit them and then submit them to the geograph website. I submit reviews to TripAdvisor, look at news sites... and check out my favourite website "Hot Brighton Grannies.com"! To tell you the truth, I spend far too much time on the laptop. I am addicted to it.

  21. As well as a lot of the other things mentioned, I like to do jigsaw puzzles - I use thejigsawpuzzles.com - saves having to have a board sitting about and no chance of losing the pieces!

  22. I don't have a laptop or an ipad so I use my desk top computer. Apart from blogging and reading blogs I use YouTube quite a lot for tutorials and listening to music and look on eBay and Amazon. I sometimes use Pinterest and Twitter. I sometimes throw in a random word on google and see if I am inspired with any sites it comes up with! x
