Updated on January 22, 2019

Introduction

As you know hobbies are activities which people often do in their free time to enjoy themselves. By doing so they can get more skills and knowledge about its area. Most of the people tend to follow trends and pick for entertainment things that are common for the time period they live in. When blogging began in the late 1990s, it became a possibility to be a hobby for many online users. Some of them even made it their profession. Today there are many ways to write articles and share them with the internet readers. You don't have to run a blog to do this kind of stuff. You just need a computer and an internet connection. Here in this article, I will try to convince you to make article writing your hobby. Let's begin.

How Article Writing Can Become Your Hobby?

This is the easy part really. Article writing is so popular nowadays. You don't even need to pay for it. The net is full of information and pieces of advice on how to name your article? How to choose what to write about? How to make it in a way that people will find it? And so on. Almost every question you could think of is answered by someone out there in this vast ocean, which the internet represents today.

Just think about whether you have the patience, the will and the desire to learn and develop yourself before getting into it. Because if you know that you give up easy or don't have time, this is just not for you.

But if you have something to share and enrich the internet, don't be afraid and go for it. Today there so many free and paid ways to write and connect with other people. From the free blogging platforms like Blogger and Wordpress.com, through the paid and better hosting providers, which will give you complete control of your blog or website, to the revenue sharing platform like Hubpages. The possibilities for you to write are endless. The desire and the skills are what you need here!

So as you saw, how is the easy part. This is the truth. The hard part is to get good at it. This is a challenge indeed. Not everyone is built for this kind of hobby. Do you accept it? Maybe you should answer after seeing my points on why article writing should be your hobby?


Why Article Writing Should Be Your Hobby?

I spent a lot of time thinking about how to persuade you guys. I decided to make it a bit different and show you these eight "if-s". I hope I will make you believe this is one best way to fill your free time with.

If your life is pretty routine.

You wake up, go to work, come back, see your girlfriend and go to bed. Every day is the same. Do something new! This is a great way to develop yourself in something else. It doesn't need to be all that different. It could be the area of your expertise, but the writing itself will be the interesting factor that will keep you focused on it.

If you find the traditional hobbies boring or a waste of time in the long run.

Things like fishing, gathering marks, watching TV, playing video games are Cathy for some time, but in the end, they get boring. Furthermore, sometimes they only take time, efforts and money, but don't bring anything meaningful at the end.

If you want to show your knowledge and skills, learn new information about your topic and improve yourself.

Article writing or running a blog is a complex process, which requires much researching and learning. You have to keep in mind that just by writing blindly you won't find the success you probably seek. Building a plan, the structure of your articles, studying the competition, always being unique and different from all other writers are only a few things you should do in order to be successful. It sounds interesting, right?

If you want to connect with other people and build a community

So when people read your article and enjoy it, they could leave a comment or ask a question. Other readers could join the conversation. Then you write another article. The process is repeated. In time these people will return and check whether you have posted something new. After a while you have an audience, you teach or inform them about the topic you write about. They will show you if you are wrong about something, so you can improve yourself too.

If you want to do it from home

You don't need to go anywhere! You can do it after getting back from work and finishing your daily stuff. Imagine you lying on your bed with your laptop on your legs thinking about your next article. What should be about? How you could help your audience even more? Why not learn something new and share it with others? How different is this than staying on Facebook and chatting with your friends? Just picture it. It sounds nice to me. How about you?

If you want to create something that is missing

Did this happen to you? You search around the net for something in particular and you can't find it or it is out there, but it is not the way you want it to be. You can fix that. Remember the are billions of people around the net. Many others will want it your way too. Help you and help them!

If you want to be important

You go fishing and catch a big fish. You are so happy. You tell your friends and family about this. They are happy too. You eat it and that's all. What is the point? Of course, you get a bit of excitement, but what if you could teach other people to get the same? Wouldn't that be better?

If you want to profit from your hobby

Having an interesting hobby is great, but it is better if you could earn some money from it. So how you could do this? Well, there are many ways. We should cover them all in a different article. If you type in Google "make money from home or online", you will find many ways to do so. One of the best ways according to most of the people is writing articles. You can write in your own blog, work as a freelancer and write for someone else, be a ghost blogger or use sites like Hubpages. With the right approach, you could make decent money and at the same time be happy from doing your hobby.

Conclusion

Writing articles is a great activity to increase your knowledge even in your area of expertise. You can master your skills, improve your imagination and connect to people with your interests. It has many advantages over other hobbies, which I stated above. I hope I have convinced you to give it a try. You won't be disappointed. You will enter a whole new world to explore. A world full of creativity, of people with different views and ideas, a world where you are free to share all of your thoughts without fear. You can be yourself and write anything you want.
