I actually have fun doing it, the thrill of interacting in real time with people across the world. And it doesn't have to take a lot of time.
I check my orders about twice a day on average, for about 10-20 minutes each time. I have one character set up near a Black Lion TP (Trading Post) and hopefully a bank (so that I can buy items and leave them for my main), that way I can use that character to primarily trade with. I log into that character before I start playing, check my orders, collect items I have bought from buy orders, put them up for sale, reset my buy orders that have been out bid.
Then I log into my main character and play for however long, an hour or two. Then before I log out for the day (or for that particular session) I switch back to my trading character and check orders again. Wash, rinse, and repeat.
I would bet that only checking the market once a day, or even every other day, for 15 minutes, you could make a decent amount. I would just be careful leaving up buy orders for too long (more than a week) without checking on the price of the item, because item pricing fluctuates a lot in this market. You could hit it big with a few items, but you could also be stuck with items that you bought for more than they currently sell for.
OP (Original Poster), Good luck!

Farming is far too boring to me. I play the TP for 15-20 minutes at a time and that gives me the remaining 24.66-24.75 hours to do whatever I want.
Can you let me know how I can get a 25th hour out of my day? I would love it!
