Make Money From Your Hobby

Many people are passionate about their hobbies. They make time in their lives for them, spend lot of money on them, and even sometimes move their homes, families and jobs just to be closer to their hobbies!

But even if you just enjoy your hobby and perhaps wouldn’t class yourself as a fanatic, wouldn’t it be great if you could earn money online – possibly even a full-time income, from simply telling others people about your passion?

Well it’s not just a dream – it’s VERY possible.

More and more people are starting ‘hobby blogs’ to tell the world about their particular interest.

And with just a few tweaks and a little technology, it’s relatively easy to make a solid income from your hobby.

Think about it this way – most people are already experts in one or two areas, and usually it’s connected with their hobby.

For example, the sailing enthusiast will know all about nautical terms, knots, how to sail a boat, navigation and so on.

But did you know that there are tens of thousands of hobbyists in your niche that are hungry to read about your experiences, ideas and expertise?

And best of all – they’ll be happy to pay you for some of it.

Imagine getting up in the morning and instead of joining the rat race to go and work to make your employer rich, you do a little work on your hobby blog – the same hobby that you’ve probably been enjoying all weekend.

Best of all, when you check your bank or Paypal account you find that you’re making money from blogging about the thing you enjoy doing most – your hobby.

Sounds like a dream I know, but let me tell you now, there are hundreds, thousands and even TENS of thousands of people RIGHT NOW making good money online from blogging about their hobby.

If you’re passionate about your hobby you can very probably profit from it – perhaps even make it your full-time income.

Turn your hobby into a regular monthly income!

    Hi Anna

    You certainly can make money blogging about your hobby as long as you’ve done a little research first to see if people are buying in your hobbie niche.

    Great post and it was good to meet you

    I’m with you, Anna! It’s my understanding and experience that following our true interests is the core of success. It’s true for a brick & mortar business, relationships, and “hobby blogs”, too. It’s like that first drop of water that initiates a huge ripple effect!

    Much love & encouragement to those who are considering blogging about their true interests and joys. You can do it!

    Hi Anna,

    I definitely agree you can turn your hobby into income. However, there’s also another thing I’d like to add – know your sources. While you can do the things yourself, the tools which you need to bring in the money might not be available or you don’t know how. Thus, business is a different matter. It’s a trial and error thing in hobbies to make mistakes but when you put money in the mix, mistakes means demotivation. It’s best then to be persistent and not give up with mistakes happen.

    I’ll see you on the 100th comment!

    Hi Anne,
    It is true that when we focus on things that we are passionate about, others can catch the wave of our passion and get excited about it too. I am curious as you didn’t mention it — what is your hobby? Are you pursuing it? Thanks for the post as it is an important reminder for all of us.

    It is an exciting thought to be able to make money from a hobby rather than the other way round as it usually is. Hobbies often cost a lot to maintain. With some creative thinking and networking almost any hobby can be made to pay for itself and even make a profit.

    Hi Anna

    Having your passions or hobbies as a source of income is a tremendous incentive, whether it works or not is another matter.

    You do need to have a market for your interests or you can waste an awful lot of time and effort. You need to research the market first, if this shows that there is a demand then that’s great and you are on a winner. Research is the key.

    Hi Anna,

    Hi Anna,

    Great, valuable post. I’m always amazed at how lots of people don’t realise there is at least one subject they are very knowledgable on. Just to name one – think of all the sub niches you could write about from the “raising children” broad niche. Also, it is easy to be regarded as an “expert” on any given topic, if you have researched it well and regularly produce new products and contribute regularly to forums, etc.

    Hi Anna, This is the first time I have visited yoour blog and if this is a sample of the content you provide then I will be coming back again and again. You are soooo right. I struggled to identify a niche that I could look to earn an income from. It is only very recently that I realised I had spent the last year re-designing sites and re-theming them. I enjoy it and love that I get an instant result thet I can see on screen. All of a sudden I have a niche to at least investigate and two or three potential products involving WordPress. I feel invigorated and more enthusiastic than I have for a while.

    To anybody reading this who is struggling to find a niche, think of something that you do on a near daily basis or so. It may be watching a certain tv program or reading a certain magazine. It could even be real ale festicals or similar. It may seem silly or a bit wild but it will be something that you can become an authority on and can then be turned into a possible income stream. If you are passionate about it, it is guaranteed that others will be as well. Unless it’s naked gnome ornaments or something (you never know though!!)

    This is some helpful stuff. It took me some time to locate this web site but it was worth the time. I noticed this page was hidden in yahoo and not the first spot. This blog has a lot of pleasant material and it doesnt deserve to be burried in the searches like that. By the way Im going to add this web publication to my favorites.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
