The Massive List of Hobbies

This is the biggest list of hobbies that exists! The goal of this list is to help you find a hobby that you might like to try or explore. A hobby can be something that enriches your life. Take your time and look through the list to see what kinds of hobbies might be appealing to you. The list is also cross-referenced in several unique ways that will help you search by new ways rather than just category.


What is a hobby? A hobby is a pastime or pursuit that is separate from a profession or career. A hobbyist pursues the hobby to satisfy personal or creative urges. And hobbies vary in their intensity and scope. Some people pursue them on a very occasional basis while other people do them daily. That is one of the nice things about a hobby - you can expand or contract the amount of time you invest in it based on what you want and what you want to learn or achieve.

The Internet and Hobbies - One of the greatest things about the internet is how readily it helps newcomers in a new pursuit. There are millions of websites and there are probably thousands of websites devoted to the hobby of your choice. You can find groups of people that all have the same interest as you and you can find lots of great information about your new found hobby.

Looking for a cheap hobby? I have a list here that will help: The big list of cheap or free hobbies

My Website - StormTheCastle.com has a whole lot of articles, tutorials, videos and information about many of these hobbies. Have fun! I also have linked some of these hobbies to pages and sections that I have.
