I agree with Barbara Todaro 's percentage.  The socializing part makes you real as a person.  We are all multi-dimensional which makes up our industry.  It is a shame to just focus on one side of the equation.  When I refer someone, I like to give an overview of the individual, rather than, this person is good at what they do (period).  A

Oh I dunno - I do a little of each.  I like Joe's comment about limiting the blogging and commenting to two hours per day.

 Good morning Bob. Needless to say, socializing and blogging in this platform can consume an awful lot of time. I'm doing my best to limit my time by maximizing the effectiveness of what I do.

Bob Crane most of you know I am ActiveRain addict! I also spend time on Social Media - however, not much.

I feel much better when I am on ActiveRain - now if you consider that as a 'better use of time'...

The writing sometimes takes more time and sometimes the commenting does. I think it takes a balance to make it work.

Blogging definitely because of the chance to be found and the links back to my website.

I limit my blogging and commenting to two hours per day and it pays off very well.

I do not know the percentages. Every day, I am tempted to turn to a better use of my time. Bad habits can be difficult to break.

I'm still a newbie to AR but I spend most of my time blogging than socializing.  Lately, it's been so busy so just finding the time to blog can be challenging.  However, there are such interesting people and stories on AR I wish I had more time to read and socialize...
