How do people make money at home online is a question that is arising more and more frequently as Internet usage increases. Let's explore this topic.

How much time do you SPEND on the Internet every day? Every week ? Every month ?

Every year ?

Just imagine how much time you will SPEND on the Internet during your life !

For those of us born before Internet access became widely available, we did many other things instead of sitting in front of a computer screen or a phone or tablet screen. Many of those things involved getting some excercise, which kept us healthy.

Many years ago, millions of people refused to use computers for various reasons including the fact that they simply found them too complicated to use. Now with the widespread use of smartphones and tablets, computing is a much easier experience. All age groups now use them; from young to old. It's common today to see toddlers in their prams and buggies holding and using (!) smartphones and iPads or octogenarians on Skype (video chatting) with their loved ones thousands of miles away.

The dictionary defines the word 'Spend' in this way:

verb (used with object), spent, spending.

1. to pay out, disburse, or expend; dispose of (money, wealth, resources, etc.): resisting the temptation to spend one's money.

2. to employ (labor, thought, words, time, etc.), as on some object or in some proceeding: Don't spend much time on it.

3. to pass (time) in a particular manner, place, etc.: We spent a few days in Baltimore.

4. to use up, consume, or exhaust: The storm had spent its fury.

5. to give (one's blood, life, etc.) for some cause.

verb (used without object), spent, spending.
6. to spend money, energy, time, etc.

7. Obsolete.


OK, let's look at the definition of:

verb (used with object)
1. to put (money) to use, by purchase or expenditure, in something offering potential profitable returns, as interest, income, or appreciation in value.

2. to use (money), as in accumulating something: to invest large sums in books.

3. to use, give, or devote (time, talent, etc.), as for a purpose or to achieve something: He invested a lot of time in helping retarded children.

4. to furnish with power, authority, rank, etc.: The Constitution invests the president with the power of veto.

5. to furnish or endow with a power, right, etc.; vest: Feudalism invested the lords with absolute authority over their vassals.

6. to endow with a quality or characteristic: to invest a friend with every virtue.

7. to infuse or belong to, as a quality or characteristic: Goodness invests his every action.

8. Metallurgy. to surround (a pattern) with an investment.

9. to provide with the insignia of office.

10. to install in an office or position.

11. to clothe, attire, or dress.

12. to cover, adorn, or envelop: Spring invests the trees with leaves.

13. to surround (a place) with military forces or works so as to prevent approach or escape; besiege.

verb (used without object)
14. to invest money; make an investment : to invest in oil stock.


As many of us know, we are encouraged (largely by the media) to spend time doing often pointless things. Watching meaningless programmes on TV, going shopping just to get out of the house, being in the company of people who don't help us to grow towards reaching our full potential.

Because of the digital age we are in today, we also are in danger of wasting 1000's of hours every year reading (often pointless) Facebook and other social media posts and messages just to fill a few hours of our time.

According to the definitions of the words, we are SPENDING our time and not INVESTING our time.

Simply put, if you're giving your attention effort, energy, money, time etc. to something for no return, you are spending.

When you are doing the same with the aim of a return of some type, be it money or a better / improved situation or life style, you are investing.
