    Hi everyone! This is a nice post. I like to share this post to my friends to show them how to make money with their hobby. Most of us are would need to look for extra income. They will surely love this one. How could I directly post this link to my Facebook account?

    Thanks again!

    This seems to be too good to be true. I just wonder how can it be possible? I enjoy most of the things enumerated here like Photography, Dog Walking and Freelance writing but I cannot claim them as my hobbies. I enjoy doing those stuff but not as regularly as others do. But certainly I would love to do them as often as possible if I will earn extra income.

  3. Donita Rose says:

    Personal Shopper will be an exciting job! I wish someone will hire me. It really caught my attention. I remember the movie the Confession of a Shopaholic. The shopper was stereotyped in a negative way. This post offers a different perspective! Nice one

    We all have different hobbies, thing we like to do, things that make us tick. For me, it’s being creative; specifically – I like to to write. And I’m a people-person, so I’m always on the hunt for the next best way to market my blogs. And the best thing of doing what you like won’t let you feel that you are working,it’s not a task but it’s something that you love to do to make your day.
