Ways of having fun on the Internet.
What to do when you're bored.
Are you bored? Got nothing to do? Then, this lens is just for you!
You've checked your e-mails, updated your website, shopped online, used instant messengers. Now what? Do you sit blank after you've completed your daily internet tasks and have time to spare? Are you getting bored? Then here are some fun tasks you can do to kill those extra hours or minutes.
Make a Squidoo lens.
Now i'm not promoting squidoo :P. But hey, it really is a lot of fun here. Just choose your favorite topic/s and blab all you want about it. Trust me family and friends aren't willing to listen to your interests. Squidoo is the best option to spread your word. Since squidoo has millions of members you can end up making friends with other lens masters and don't forget, you can also earn cash on the side.
If you're online and getting bored why not think of the things you always wanted to know. Like, why is the sky blue? What's the best remedy for oily skin? Or how long will it take me to buy a new car? Ask questions, answer questions, help someone out and learn something new. Yahoo answers is a fun way of interacting with people from around the world. And trust me, sometimes people ask such silly questions that you just can't stop laughing. Nothing ever stops here.You will need a yahoo account to ask,answer and rate questions.

Polyvore.com is one of my favorite sites. You basically can discover your own creativity here. It's a fashion site where you can mix and match dresses and accessories to create pretty looks. You will get rated and commented for the looks you create. There are lots of groups you can join and showcase your fashion talent. There's a clipper which you can use to import items from other websites to your polyvore personal page and use them to match with other items. They also have a place for interior décor on the side, which is great for interior design lovers. You'll love this site if you're or not a design student, an art and fashion lover. Here's my polyvore page.
