13 Fun Ways to Beat Boredom Online

Here are 13 fun ways to pass the time online.

1. Watch Videos - YouTube is a treasure of entertaining video content. Whether you want to learn, laugh, or just pass the time, you're sure to find videos that match your interest on YouTube. To get you started, consider searching for funny compilation videos and go from there. Dont forget to search for FLUFFY :). I bet you will definitely enjoy him. He is my favourite comedian.

2. Learn a New Skill - It's never been easier to learn something new. From YouTube videos to internet blogs, it's totally possible to teach yourself a new skill online. Better yet, use ChatGPT and have it teach you! If there's something you've always wanted to learn how to do, use the power of the internet to make it happen. I always try to learn trending technologies for better understanding of its adoption.

3. Play Games - There are hundreds (if not thousands) of free and fun games available online. From escape room games and puzzle games to interesting games like GeoGuessr, there's definitely a game that can help you beat the boredom.

4. Listen to a Podcast - From true crime to health and wellness, there's probably a podcast (or a few) that could trigger your interest. If you're bored and looking for a way to pass the time, consider listening to a podcast. Jump on Spotify or YouTube and see if any jump out. I listen to Joe Roagan as he is one of my favourite podcasters

5. Do Some Online Window Shopping - Just like you can window shop in the real world, you can do the same online. Visit Amazon, Etsy, or any other online store, and create a wish list of items, and see what your favorite sellers have in stock. Make sure you must push yourself to fulfil that wishlist.

6. Take an Online Quiz - You can consider quirky Buzzfeed-type quizzes to a more self-reflective "who am I quiz," there's no shortage of fun quizzes you can take to pass the time.

7. Check Out Wayback Machine - Wayback Machine is an internet archive of the internet that allows you to see how websites have looked over time. Jump on and see how your favorite websites used to look and soak up some nostalgia. Its time machine I also like to explore.

8. Find the Invisible Cow - If you're looking to waste some time, try findtheinvisiblecow . It's a silly little website that's sure to make you smile. Be ready with your headphones.

9. Read Fanfic- If you're looking for something to read that's a bit out of the norm, consider jumping onto a website like Wattpad and finding some great stories around the world.

10. Start a Blog - Many people still consider blogging outdated, but it's never too late to start your own. Use it as a place to express your thoughts or discuss your interests. If you're looking for a side hustle, you can even try to grow it into a passive income. I personally know how it changed my life.

11. Take a Virtual Tour - Virtual Tours became a big thing during COVID times, but several museums, zoos, and national parks still allow you to take a virtual tour and experience somewhere new and fun.

12. Learn to Code - Check out a place like Free Code Camp or Code Academy and learn one of the highest-paid skills on the market. With just a little bit of tenacity, you could turn all your boring afternoons into a lucrative new career path. Make sure you choose the one you really love.

13. Press the Bored Button - If you're bored, press the bored button here and be taken to an interesting or fun website. It takes you somewhere different every time you click it, so give it a spin if you're ready for an adventure.


The internet isn't just a practical tool – it's a portal to endless excitement and endless discovery! Whether you crave heartwarming laughter from a silly animal video or dream of creating your own little corner of the digital world with a blog, the possibilities are truly limitless.
