How to Write Down Your Hobbies in Paragraph Form

Writing down your hobbies as a paragraph and you might just feel the words flow freely onto the paper.

When people think about hobbies, they typically think about traditional hobbies, such as stamp collecting, scrapbooking or model train building. However, anything that someone does for fun can be considered a hobby, even if it is trying to find the best ice cream place in your city. Writing about hobbies in paragraph form seems hard at first, but it is actually not complicated at all. In fact, you may actually have trouble keeping the information into just one paragraph.

Write down all of the hobbies that you enjoy. Most people have at least three or four main hobbies that they enjoy. The hobbies do not have to be craft-oriented; even sports and video games can be included in a list of hobbies. Anything that you do just for enjoyment is a hobby.

Expand the list of hobbies into subsections. For example, if one of your hobbies is sports, you could expand the list to include exactly what you enjoy about the sport, such as strategy, game-play, food and exercise. For a photography hobby, you could include sections such as exploring nature, finding poses, developing pictures or scrapbooking as subsections. Try to come up with three or four subsections for each hobby.

Write a small paragraph including all of the subsections explaining why you enjoy the hobby. Start with an introductory sentence that explores the hobby, then explain the reasons you enjoy the hobby in follow-up sentences.

Include a few details about the hobby for the reader, such as what typically occurs when you engage in that hobby, or basic rules or regulations associated with the hobby.

Combine all of these details together to create your paragraph about your hobbies. Use one paragraph per hobby. If necessary, you can also include an introductory and conclusion paragraph to transform the information into an essay.
