Introducing "The Big Book of Hobby Ideas"
I realize I haven't updated the site in a while. I apologize for that, but it's been for good reason:
I finished another book.
Let me back up: two years ago, I made what I thought at the time was a one-off post entitled "36 Ideas for New Hobbies," in large part because I was in the market for new hobbies at the time, but didn't find a good list of a bunch of ideas all in one place.
Somehow, through the years, more and more folks came to the site looking for new hobby ideas, until one day I woke up and At Wit's End was one of the top sites on Google for new hobby ideas!
I was shocked and thrilled; more than anything, I enjoyed receiving all of the comments and emails that indicated that I had helped people break out of their rut and find something new and rewarding to do with their spare time.
That said, I finished up that post in a couple of hours. I thought if people found that helpful, how helpful might they find an entire book, complete with links to sites, books, and other resources to get you started on your new hobby?
Behold! The Big Book of Hobby Ideas: Hundreds of Hobby Ideas for Men and Women, Complete With Links and Resources to Help You Find Your Passion (Whew! That's a mouthful!)
I spent hundreds of hours researching what eventually became over 200 pages of hobby ideas, each with convenient links to get you started on your new hobby, as well as a linked index to make book navigation that much easier.
For now, it's only available on Kindle, but I hope to have it out in other electronic versions and in paperback shortly.
As much as that one post has helped a lot of folks around the world through the years, I hope that the book has an even bigger impact on people, and allows them to go beyond finding a hobby to help them discover their passion, what truly inspires them.
I'll update the bottom of this post with links as the new versions become available. For now, my sincerest thanks on setting me down this wonderful path of helping others!
