We are not going to tell you about the obvious hobbies such s sport or reading. We are going to tell you about hobbies that most people think are expensive but in reality if you are strategical about these hobbies and do not mind making a small investment, you will in fact find ways to fill up your time without having to take on a hobby you may not really be keen on.
1. Playing MOBA Games
Mobile online battle arena games are mostly free to play. You can join thousands of others online and play the game in an online battle arena versus others that want to play for free. That said, you can also spend a lot of money on MOBA games, so you must be careful. The thing is, you do not need to spend a penny if you do not want to. On the other hand, if you want to play the higher tier games, then you may need to part with a small amount of cash like $10.00 and every so often you may want to purchase skins for your MOBA characters which can be as cheap as $1.00.
2. Playing Mobile Casino Games
Most casino games today are free to play if you just go to the casino gaming developer’s website. Many of the companies that provide online casinos with their games will have a ‘test’ version of the game that you can test out. For example, check out Red Tiger Gaming. You can play their games for free and these are the actual games being played in online casinos around the world. That means you are getting the same quality gaming as a real money casino player for free.
You can also visit online casino websites and get the same experience. Many of the online and mobile casinos give you the option to play games for free before you sign up. Check out this online casino review site in Malaysia where you will find a list of mobile casinos, and if you speak with their live chat, they will give you a free play log in so you can try out all the games on your Android or iOS smartphone.
Even playing for real money does not need to be expensive. If you look at the games on the Red Tiger Gaming website, many of them have a small house edge of just 3%. That means you get a return of 97% in the long run. In theory, this means every $100.00 you bet will give you back $97.00. Of course, it does not work like this exactly as probability and variation are not exact sciences, but what this does tell you is that you do not need to spend a lot to play real money games.
3. Writing for Websites
If you are good at writing and you have expertise knowledge in a particular field, then why not write? You can write articles for websites that will happily publish your content for free and you get to see the fruits of your labor published online. In some cases, there are website that will pay you to write.
You just need to search online for websites that have the ‘Write for Us’ menu option, then offer your talented writing services. Not all of them will pay, but some will. You can also look at freelancer websites that are looking for expert writer in their specific niche. For example, if you like to write about travelling and have some decent travel content to offer, then look at site such as The Write Life which lists 34 travel magazines that pay freelance writers.
Being a writer means that not only are you taking up a hobby, you will be able to get paid for the work that you do. However, do not become carried away and make writing a career unless you are absolutely sure you are going to be remunerated because freelance writing is not an easy job by any mean. Also, when a hobby becomes a career, it can lose its spark.
