Yes, I have always enjoyed taking things apart, fixing them, and putting them back together. I started a Swimming Pool Service and Repair company that served me well for over 20 years. If you like what you are doing, it doesn't really seem like work.
I have made some money by selling my photos on Microstock sites like Shutterstock and Dreamstime. So far I haven't been committed enough to make a living out of my photos, but I hope that one day I will be able to combine my various hobbies into a real money-spinner.
Yes I have. Among them are my love of art, sculpting, and murals. Many commisions for potraits, and murals. As well as sign painting for companies.
Holistic medicine, helping people, and my pharmacy backround.
My love of a good deal, and saving money, and of course shopping. What girl doesn't like to shop? Food and entertainment. Paula Deen reminds me of an Aunt, that passed away. Always looking for ways to save time, and money in the kitchen.
Yes, I have been writing for some 30 years professionally in my country. It was a college hobby and a way to earn a little money then. Now, I do online writing and have some clients. I also do pr and marketing.
I have worked in the financial industry for twenty years and hated every minute of it. My hobby at the time was already restoring British sportscars of the 50s and 60s. While still working my regular job, I started a small business of buying and selling parts for such cars, after I started looking for parts for my own car. I realised there was a niche in the market and I grabbed the opportunity. Shortly after, I took a year sabbatical leave from my employer and never went back. Even though I was making a little less money at the time, my life was improved beyond belief and I have been self employed ever since. I would do it all over again, only earlier.
Yes. I set out with the idea that I'd develop my own novelty crafts and do a little machine embroidery on the side. The machine embroidery took over, though, and gave me no time for the creative work I wanted to do. So, I turned my embroidery hobby into money almost accidentally.
Yes, I do. Through baking cakes. My specialty is the Schwarzwälderkirschtorte (original Black Forest Cake, a German recipe) and cupcakes. It´s still a hobby for me as I don´t have a shop and I do it only through orders.

Should a hobby be turned into moneyShould a hobby that you really enjoy in life and gives you a massive feeling of well being be turned into a money making venture even if your gut feeling is no?

Do you consider HubPages a hobby or as a way to boost your income?I started writing on HubPages as a creative outlet, but now that I'm beginning to make a little money, I'm changing my outlook.

As I read and try to learn about the internet, I keep running across people talking about content spinners. Isn't the content that they create considered duplicate content? Or not? Does anyone use them for any other applications? Are there good applications for them? I'm curious on what everyone...
