I'd say yes, it is. But who am I to judge? I'm developing for MUDs in 2013–already well into the realm of the absurd :)
Seriously, it's like Idealiad said. This is a hobbyist turf–do whatever you want. A job is where you let people tell you what to do so you'd earn money to pay for things you and your family need. With whatever's left you buy some happy times for yourself. A hobby is where you do whatever you want and get directly to the happy times part.
