Our hobbies often reveal a part of ourselves that we find interesting. If you want to understand someone better, just take a look at their favorite hobbies.
In today’s world of social media, we have a digital journal where we can share our hobbies with others. We often find creative ways to express our love for something, whether it’s a sport, a musician we’re a fan of, or a collectible.
Sharing our hobbies and consuming similar content allows us to connect with like-minded individuals and explore our interests further. If you’re looking to enhance your hobby content, creators Verniece Enciso, Daniel Miranda, Ariana Evangelista, and Mikki Tenazas have some valuable tips.
Keep it enjoyable and relatable
Social media provides a convenient platform to connect with people who share the same hobbies. Therefore, it’s crucial not to make your content too serious or complicated.
Ariana, who loves playing ping pong and going on motorcycle adventures, openly shares these hobbies on her social media. She enjoys seeing people who love the same activities support her. “I keep my posts light and fun to engage my followers,” says Ariana.
Daniel, who is also into motorcycles and golf, sees social media as a great tool to connect and share his interests with his followers. He always strives to make his content relatable by providing genuine feedback on his hobby experiences.
Create to inspire
Sometimes, people hesitate to start a new hobby, even if they have an interest in it. This hesitation can be due to a lack of time or resources. For creators like Verniece, who is known for her stunning lifestyle content, the goal is to inspire her followers to pursue their dreams.
“My favorite hobbies are photography, cooking, and ice skating. Social media has helped me discover myself and connect with my audience. I inspire them to work hard and never give up on their dreams by sharing my own experiences and being true to myself,” says Verniece.
Mikki also finds inspiration from other creators while traveling or exploring new restaurants. “I have always incorporated my travels and adventures into my social media content. Capturing these experiences has helped me develop my photography and videography skills while continuously striving to create engaging content with the devices I travel with,” Mikki explains.
Be ready to capture
You don’t need expensive equipment to capture photos and videos of your hobbies. You can use a smartphone like the Infinix ZERO 30 5G, which features a 4K Ultra Clear Front Vlog Camera that emphasizes every detail with clarity. It also includes a dual-view camera feature for simultaneous selfie and rear shots.
“It’s perfect for capturing my daily activities, whether it’s delicious food in a new restaurant or a beautiful view in a new destination. The Dual Video feature allows me to capture my own emotions and those of the people I’m sharing the experience with, as well as breathtaking landscapes,” Mikki shares.
In addition to capturing content, the Infinix ZERO 30 5G can handle editing processes efficiently, thanks to its 5G Powerful MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor and up to 21GB Massive Extended RAM. Daniel and Ariana express that it’s a great device for creating high-quality content. “It’s convenient because I don’t need to bring an editor or videographer. I can easily create content anywhere,” says Daniel.
Talking about your hobbies on social media not only allows you to express yourself but also helps you connect with others. With a reliable device like the Infinix ZERO 30 5G (priced at P14,999 for 12+256GB), you can create your own story through the hobbies that keep you engaged.
You can also take your hobby content to the next level by participating in Infinix’s Mobile Vlog Awards (MVA). Aspiring content creators can showcase their mobile filmmaking skills in two categories: Template Tales in collaboration with CapCut and Vertical Freedom. Entries will be submitted via TikTok until October 30.
