Do You Have A Great Hobby?

Do You Have A Great Hobby?

Life gets busy and we all need a break from time to time to release stress, and tension. Do You Have A Great Hobby? 

I enjoy photography, there is so much beauty in nature and the world around us. My camera goes just about everywhere I go because there are so many random opportunities to capture Life In Progress. 

As my photo slide below shows I find beauty everywhere I go, and sometimes my fingers just isn't quick enough to photograph what I see. However on those occasions' when I get it just right I treasure that image, and use it to transport me back to that moment in time.

Recently I've found a way to dig up my photos and share them on RedGage which is a social networking, and content sharing website. Although I'm more interested in sharing, and seeing photos, videos, and websites from around the world, RedGage pays for the traffic that members send to their unique content, of course that's a bonus. 

I also like the fact that once you upload content to RedGage you can then post it to Twitter, and quite a few other social media websites. Sharing with friends, and followers is the main ingredient of Social Networking TrendsRedGage makes it attractive for members to share their hobbies, and interests by monetizing their traffic. 

Photography is a hobby that I enjoy so much that it drives my friends, and family around the bend because I'm always after them with my camera. Funny thing is though, as much as I love taking photographs, and consider it a great hobby I absolutely hate having my picture taken!

Crazy how that works, isn't it? 

So, What's Your Great Hobby?

I write. I write a lot. I've been accused of have diarrhea of the keyboard. I have written two novella length fan fiction stories and I'm working on two more. I also take advantage of my writing by sharing it in my Fan Fiction eZine. I have to free up the RAM on my computer somehow!

I'll have to wait until I can afford to buy the rights to LEXX. I mean it's not like the company that owns them now are doing anything with them!

@Cheryl - Maybe you can contact them and share the book idea? copyrighted first of course! I saw some websites about self-publishing recently, think I bookmarked them I'll see if I can find the links and than you for subscribing Cheryl, I appreciate that ;0)

@Philippe - My son has a whack of original comic books too, he's a big super hero fan! After seeing the film "Kick A$$" he's decided that he should start him own super-hero team, maybe you two can team up! ;0)

I think I would have to say that a hobby of mine is reading Science-Fiction Fantasy to relax. Sometimes movies along those lines as well.

Hi Genesis! Nice to meet you!

Joey, I managed to crash two computers in September within 3 days of each other. They've been fixed, but I had never crashed a computer before. I have no idea how to fix them. I am planning on purchasing an external drive to hold some of my info.

I also am a big fan of silver jewelry. I am looking for something specific, so maybe you can help me Sean!

With your books Cheryl, I can give you links to newsletters and some information on self-publishing if you are interested. Please let me know.
