I had a small web design business that I worked on outside of my full time job; I just recently sold the last of my websites, and I am really over the web design business as a side hobby. It just became too demanding to keep up with, and it wasn’t fun anymore.

Now I am looking for a new hobby/business to start working on, but this time I would like to pursue something a little more fun and relaxing. I am artistic and enjoy working with Macs. I want to do something productive, so no gaming; and I would like the business to be something that I can work on at my leisure, instead of having to meet client deadlines.

I thought about photography, but I feel like that is such a saturated market that it may be a waste of time, unless I focused on some kind of niche.

Any suggestions on a new business/hobby that I might enjoy? :confused:

If you're at all interested in photography you can make a little extra cash selling stock images through websites like Shutterpoint. I really don't know how profitable it is but it's something you can do at your leisure. Maybe something to research.

Great suggestion! I will look into that. Are you into photography?

I wonder if theres something similar to shutterpoint for graphic design, or music???

I don't do much with photography, mostly for lack of time and money. But I Audiojungle does something similar for music. I actually found these suggestions under searches I did for "easy ways to make money in college." Can you tell I'm a poor college student? Glad I could help though, best luck on your future endeavors!
