    I currently have a few one page niche directories on highly focused topics that I maintain in my spare time as a hobby, but I don't think that is what you were looking for.

    directories is not my main business! i have a lot of other sites to maintain aswell, but then lately i have worked on harmu.com more than any other site of mine! also, i will be making 1-2 more directories, may be a total of 5, i guess that much i can manage alone.

    i work 18 hours a day, so no staff is required. but yes the work pressures is increasing, so i may take a staff, may be next month!

    directory is not my full time business, but then it is taking my most online time these day!:)

    Resources :-

    Full Time :- 1[that is me]
    Part Time :- 1[yes, me! deponds on work though, less work means me working part time!]

    and whether its a Business or Hobby :-

    Business :- No
    Hobby :- yes, hobby, run on business stardards!
    cheers!

    I am a permanent Govt. Employee. But my regular Job -requires - maximum 3 hrs presence per day. Sometimes -- just 1 hr.
    I was too bored - to spend 15+ free hrs. So I started playing games on Yahoo --continued few months --but the INTERNET BILL was too high:mad: to sustain.

    I wanted some earnings from the net --and happened to find DP.:)
    Joined the directory bandwagon since January --and has been spending 12-18 hrs/day.


    Resources

    Full Time :- 1 People - only me - 4 directories
    Part Time :- 0 People

    and whether its a :-

    Business or Hobby

    Business :- Can't say ( I would rather say its my Passion as I don't depend on directory income)
    Hobby :- Passion:)

    It is quickly becoming a full time job. You can put as much or as little as you want into a directory. My goal is to build the most comprehensive hub for blog related information on the net. I'm giving myself realistic goals and targets. Currently I work a full time job as well which allows me alot of freedoms so I'm in no rush to leave the day job.

    Is it a hobby though: Yeah. I'm passionate about it sure I run it like a business and it is but I don't see it as work, I see it as a hobby and active investment :D

    I take my one & only directory very seriously. It is a full time job for me and I consider it as a business.
