For hobby I will ensure that it also making money for me. If not, I will not make it as hobby. Hobby can be anything to me. But your hobby is in different category to me, because it is under 'noble hobby'. Because of your noble hobby many good things will be happening in your family. I really salute, appreciate with respectful and admirable. Your nobleness make me ponder and stuck of ideas to write further texts....very impressive !!!!

Yes I agree my children are my greatest job as well, but being able to stay home with them, has allowed me to advance my real hobby which is gemstone collecting and jewelry making. I have sold quite a bit of my stuff over the last 3 yrs

What a sweet hobby.I think your that is one of your habbies and you definitely have other hobbies. It will be wonderful if someone's job is his or her hobby.But my job is not my hobby.So I am trying to change it.There are two ways to do.One is change my job and the other one is change my hobby.I don't know which one is more easier. :-)

My hobby ended up becoming a job. I used to just write as a hobby, though occasionally I would send off a submission. Then a few years ago, I became unemployed and with the local job market and my lack of college, I ended up having to do it seriously for a living. Much to my surprise, I am actually doing quite well at it.

Well, I'm trying to turn my hobby in a job. A couple of months ago we decided that I would become a stay at home mom. We don't need my income and can live pretty easily of the income of my husband and the kids are so much happier. But, because I really would like to save a little more than we do now (we can save a decent amount, but I want more ;-) ) I'm trying to make a part-time income through the internet. It's hard work now I'm starting out, but I hope one day I can just sit back and work less and let the money come in. Hey, we all can dream, can't we? ;-)

If you love children, have you thought about taking on a couple of extra kids? I did this for a while to earn a little extra money. It was nice for the kids to have a couple of playmates around, and it was nice for me to be able to earn a little extra cash.
