Your hobbies need not be a factor in the diwndling of your hard-earned resources. They can even be a cause of your windfall. How? Here are some tips and suggestions which you can use to turn your hobby into a source of extra money:
One obvious way of creating money is by selling your products. You can do this in country fairs (for handicrafts and baked goods), or hobby fairs (for miniatures and other toy conventions). You can also build your own blog or website where you can accept orders from people.
Whether you knit, carve wood products, or bake cakes and pastries, you can hire your services in community programs or other organizations who wish to learn about crafts and whatnots. You can teach classes or you can even hold one-on-one tutorials.
If your hobby is wriitng, you can market your skill and write how-to-articles online, or you can find websites where they pay you to write articles by topic.
If your hobby is collecting stuff, you can always auction off some of your collections on eBay and other specialist websites. These can be coins, stamps, vintage cameras, books, etc.
