Hi, I’m Sarah. Before I tell you about Hobbyism let me tell you a bit about myself.
Are you familiar with the saying, ‘try everything at least once’? That is me in a nutshell. I will have the most fantastic, amazing idea, try it and then the next day move onto something new.
To name a few here are some amazing ideas I have started and not finished:
- Watercolour painting
- Jewellery making to possibly sell
- learning guitar
- learning a new language
- knitting a scarf
- learning to sew
- starting a shop on shopify
- buying stuff to sell on ebay
- sanding down the coffee table
- Making pallets into furniture (I did manage to make a shelf though)
- My sarahface website
That isn’t even the entire list and it gets slightly disheartening when you spend over a £100 on a guitar you’ve only used a handful of times.
In the mornings, I have a 25 minute walk to work which I normally use to listen to my current audible (atm: Mythos by Stephen Fry) but sometimes I use that time to ponder. I had been spending most of my free time looking for a new hobby. It has become kind of an addiction similar to how Sherlock feels when he doesn’t have a decent case to work. It was within this small window of time that I had the Hobbyism epiphany. I can use my experiences from my unfinished ventures to inspire anyone who will listen into new pastimes.
Each post will be about a new hobby that you can try. Have you noticed how in recipe blog posts there are hundreds of words of dribble about how they hand grew all their ingredients etc etc. There won’t be any of that. It’ll be concise and easy to follow.
Or it will all go to crap and this will be another brilliant unfinished idea.
