About Today: Bored? Start a New Hobby 1/10/11

From Jen Hubley, your About Today Editor
This is the best time of year to start a new hobby. Most of us (in the northern hemisphere, at least) are spending the bulk of our time indoors these days, trying to avoid the cold weather, and shorter days mean longer evenings to fill up.

How to Start Collecting United States Stamps 
One of the most fun hobbies to start, in my opinion: Collecting something. For one thing, it gives you an excuse to nerdle around on the internet looking for the things you collect. And nerdling is the best hobby of all.
Start Collecting Coins 
I like the idea of collecting coins, because you can start by going through your own pockets.
Get Started Collecting Comics 
Comic book collecting brings you back in touch with your inner kid. Provided your inner kid enjoyed storing things in acid-free boxes.
Get Started Collecting Dolls 
Most of us collected dolls at one time or another, whether it was Barbie or GI Joe. I tied my Barbies to the tracks of my model trains and gave them bizarre haircuts, but maybe you were kinder to yours.
