This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
Learning that you are pregnant can be one of the most joyous occasions in a woman’s life. As many of us know pregnancy can happen spontaneously or after much trying. Regardless of how a woman becomes pregnant, it is vitally important for her to know when she…
So many mom bloggers are in different phases of blogging. Some are brand-new to blogging and consider it a hobby. Other moms have been blogging for years and now consider it a hybrid between a hobby and a job. And some mom bloggers approach their blogs strictly from a business point of view.
What is blogging for you? A job, a hobby, or a combination of both?
I think I fall in the category of a hybrid blogger. I like blogging and would do so for a hobby; however, I recently released my first novel, A Little Bit of Sin, and have other online businesses like www.kneedspirit.com and realize that I need to promote them online and on my blog. So, in order to keep up with the so-called Joneses I need to blog to get the word out.
A combination...I enjoy writing about my interests and consider that a hobby. My blog, however, also generates leads for my marketing work PLUS it generates some revenue through advertising ...so it has a business component as well.
I love to write. So, because I'm doing what I love, blogging is a creative release and an enjoyable pasttime. At the same time, I have a vision to to help moms who want to create health for their children and their family… moms who have the desire to make a healthy difference but just don't know where to start. This vision is much more of a passion than a hobby. It would be nice it the blogging brought in some extra money, but I've just started so I'm not there yet.
For me, financially speaking, blogging is a hobby (as in I don't want to make money directly from my blog). However, as a parenting writer/speaker/consultant, everything kind of works together so I wold have to go with "combination of both".
Blogging for me is a combination of a job and a hobby. This is the first job I really enjoy. My enjoyment is no doubt due to the fact that I am the boss. Like La Mom, I hope that becomes a paying job, but until then I am satisfied to let it be my hobby/job/therapy.
