How many hours do you sweep a day?
I average about 4 hours a day/ 5 days a week sweeping and I win around 10 sweepstakes a month. I am going to start spending more time sweeping. How about you?

Oh, lol....I thought your question was "how many hours do you sleep a day?"
I'm getting the afternoon nod-offs so I better brew up some coffee
I only average 1-2 hours a day myself.

Only about an hour a day and I don't think I've missed a single day since I started in 2005. I only win a few times a month now, used to win a lot more.

4-5 hours a day
x7 days a week =28-35 hours a week
x52 weeks a year = 1456-1820 hours a year
x 100 an hour = 146,00-180,000 a year!!!

So doing some math, every 6 years I crank out a million entries!!!!

I work for a living so I only have about an hr to 1.5 hrs a day to enter the sweeps
I enter about 1000 daily ones plus whatever I have saved to roboform from fb or what I see in my news feed

I win more during the winter when I don't have to work OT and I prob spend an hr at night looking on my fb feed to enter more (the ones I missed during the day lol)

I can't imagine spending that much time entering sweeps, you are really dedicated

my wins

Right now about 2 minutes a day. I have been in a rut for the longest time and with summer here I just don't see it changing anytime soon. Oh well I will get back to it soon enough.

I spend more on the membership and internet bill than any wins in the last 10 years
Seriously, you need to change something that you are doing. You should be getting at least one win every other week. Are you hand typing everything?

I changed up my routine a couple months ago. Some days I don't sweep and some days I'm here 4-5 hours. It may average to 2 hours a day over the course of a week. I win about 1 a week, but sometimes it's 1 every other week. I'm sure this fall I'll switch up my routine again. Every time someone asks this question I give a different answer. It all depends on if it's summer/winter and what I'm entering for or what types I'm focusing on. I'd get BORED TO DEATH doing the same thing every day for years on end. Try to keep it fresh and enjoyable.

I probably sweep about 2 hours a day - maybe a little more on the weekends.

I work full time and of course the housework and daily tasks so I only get about 1.5 hours to 2 max per weekday and try to do more on weekends.

I've had great months of winning 7 or 8 items and some months with only one win, and once since I started seriously sweeping a year plus ago, I didn't win anything that month.

If I can ever make it to retirement I hope to put in more time. It's a fun hobby.
