I once heard the quote - "Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative.” This has really stuck with me, and I’ve put much thought specifically into hobbies that would make you money, as finding hobbies that keep you in shape and creative are much more personalized.
These days, it seems everyone has some type of a side-hustle. Some people have multiple. Some people even make their living off of many different hustles. The key is to find something you truly enjoy. It shouldn’t feel like work or be draining. At the end of the day, it’s a hobby - it just has the added benefit of making you some cash on the side.
Here’s some examples of money-making hobbies:
Crafts / DIY Projects
Anything handmade has this pleasant, otherworldly charm that cheap, mass-produced goods don’t possess. From carving wood to crochet, you can easily sell your crafts and DIY projects online. If you want to get inspired, Etsy is a great source!
Writing and Blogging
The best thing about writing and blogging is that you can do it on whatever you like! What all writers/bloggers have on their side is that it’s unique to themselves and their experiences. If you’d like to learn more on growing your blog, check out this post.

Of course, just because you’re able to have hobbies that will make you money, doesn’t mean every single hobby has to or should. It’s important to have hobbies that you can do simply to relax and unwind, or to keep healthy both physically and mentally.
