Practical Hobbies

Sew Me

Throughout the day, I kept thinking what to write. I was choosing between writing about my deepest and darkest secret or about practical hobbies that you will enjoy and at the same time earn money. But, I am not going to give out my secrets that easily.

The following are practical hobbies that I enjoy. I would still be doing these things all over again because I love these with a passion. Even if no one is paying me to do so.

Writing/Blogging

Thank you for Hub Pages - you get to write and earn at the same time. As a side bonus, you get to meet people from different backgrounds and interact. I started out with Blogger.com and here I am now with Hub Pages. The difference between Blogger and Hub Pages is- in the latter, there are administrators that can keep tract whether your hub is substandard and checks if your blog is using watermarked photo. When this happen, do not lose hope. Do not give up and forgot all about the website, your password and the internet. Rather than pull out your diary and write the pain and suffering you feel because of rejection, you can still edit your hub and re submit for publication.

Reading

I love reading any topic as long as it is well written. There are a lot of materials for reading but too little time to read them all. There are some sites that will pay you to read articles and rate them but choose wisely. Being a proofreader or a freelance reader is a much better option. You need to build a good reputation and develop essential skills if you do intend to be a paid reader.

Online Games

Our motivational speaker once told us that it takes about twenty-one days to develop an addiction. I was intently listening to him about it because I am addicted to online games. Any games from Facebook that I can check gave me an instant fix. But I was surprised when I started writing again, my constant need to check on my dragons (Dragon City by Social Point) became secondary. Writing even replaced that need.

Sewing

This article started out because the buttons of my uniforms just sort of popped out and ran away from me. Its a good thing one of my hobbies that is nearing extinction is sewing clothes. I tried once to enroll in a technical school but I was not able to finish the two-week course. My hobby then evolved into sewing for practical purposes. When I need to sew, then I took out my sewing kit.

Choosing your own hobby will mostly depend on who and what your personality is. Partly, because of the influence of people around you. The important thing to keep in mind when you choose your hobby is practicality, affordability and because it's fun, fun fun! If you are still undecided, this LIST OF HOBBIES will help you choose. Sew me, I am finished for the day.

      Thanks for the comment Diane. It's a challenge to create hub pages everyday, but its all worth it.

      I was hesitant to join Hubpages but I'm glad I did. I appreciate the civil exchanges. This is also a great resource for everything!

      Aside from writing, one of my the things I love to do is taking care of my mini-herb garden on my porch. I say mini because there are only a few of them and they are planted on small pots.
