How to Make Money Using Your Hobbies | By Dan Popescu
No matter who you are and where you live, you are bound to have some hobbies! From playing pool to taking pictures, from raising bunnies to 500Hp cars, we all have activities we love to spend time on. And wouldn’t it be great if our job was like that? Just doing the things we like, and that we already spend time on, and getting paid for doing so? Maybe it’s a dream, but maybe it’s not! (don’t worry I’m not going to sell you anything 🙂 ).
Well, considering that you’re reading a “how to make money” article I am going to assume that that’s what you are here for so I’ll get on it 🙂 . Remember how I was talking about your hobbies? There are ways of using them, or the knowledge you gather from them, to earn some nice money. How? Well, simple. There are, for sure, more people in this world than just you, interested in that particular activity that you like so much. And these people are the ones interested in your hobbies product, or your knowledge on that hobby.
What do I mean? Well, you know those pictures you took on that mountain top last summer, with those beautiful views, that you love showing to your friends? If the pictures are truly that nice, there will be some people willing to buy them from you, to use on their websites, or commercials, or other things, without fear of violating copyrights. Where do they look when they want to buy such pictures? Read ahead and you will find out.
Remember when your son, or your friend saw you for the first time playing your favorite game, and they wanted you to teach them? How you got them through the rules, the basics, and then gave them some rare tips, that aren’t in any book, but you learned over the years while playing that game, trough practice? Was it hard? NO! It was fun! Well, how about you take a piece of paper or open a word document and write down exactly what you taught them? All the steps – the rules, the basics, the tips. And while doing it realize how easy this “writing stuff” is. It’s not like you have to write a book or something, you just have to write 2-3 tutorial pages about that game you like. People often say “but oh what am I going to write in 3 pages?”.
Trust me, when you get started about your hobbies, you will fill far more than 3 pages of text, just realize how we all bored someone sometime by talking too much about stuff we like 🙂 ! Go start writing right now, and I bet by the time you finish you won’t know when the time passed, and you will scroll up and realize you have written far more than you thought you could write. Oh, and how you always thought that writing must be hard, only to realize it is so easy if the topic is right! Is your article done? Well guess what! There are tons of people out there that know as little about your game as that son or friend you taught, or even more than them but still less than you. And they will all be interested in learning from your expertise and getting some tips from a more experienced player. Ok, so what? Where do your money come from? Well simple. There is a place where you can post that article and get paid first for posting it, and then get paid when other people come and read it! Just like that!
In that same place you can sell your pictures, videos, audio files. And it’s all free for you, with no catch. Why? Because you are producing stuff others are willing to pay for, and the more people interested in your stuff, the more the website hosting you earns also.
I hope my info is helpful and that you find what you seek.
Have a nice day!
Ready to get busy? The website that pays for your hobbies, as well as other ways to make money online, is reviewed on the totally free Real Online Jobs Project. It is a project that I started after my long and harsh crusade to find ways of making money online, when I realized that when searching for online jobs instead of finding what you seek most of the time you get assaulted by tons and tons of e-books and other so called get rich schemes designed to get your money and never deliver. I decided to spare others the months of searches and frustration, and some of their money, and put all my findings in one place for everyone to choose what’s best for them. It is updated at least once a week with reviews of real online jobs so don’t hesitate to bookmark it and return to check it out once in a while.
