And you may be thinking to yourself, "if he actually enjoyed doing it, he'd do it for free.", but I go by the saying, "If you're good at something, don't do it for free." If one day I start a business, then sweet, but for now its merely a hobby. And yeah, I knew what IPO stood for...
OK, I'll play one more round. Selling something means you have income. Income requires you to pay income taxes, or file a tax return with writeoffs to offset your income.

I'm pretty sure the IRS calls this a "business".

And to back up, what makes you think anyone would just give you money to watch you play with your hobby? How's this, I like to water ski. Please buy me a new boat.
