What is blogging for you? A job, a hobby, or a combination of both?

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?

Blogging is a hobby more than anything. I would love to make money from blogging as well but I have no clue how. 

Meanwhile, I enjoy the exchange of comments and ideas with other bloggers, especially my followers. :-)

Blogging is a hobby first-and-foremost. I don't make money off of it; my blog is too new and unprofessional (design/layout, etc.) to sell advertising or feed Google ads on it yet. I love to write, but I don't find too much free time to do so, which also isn't conducive to making money from it as I do it only when I please. However, I will be making plugs for my business - Tiny Treasures Kids Consignment Sale of New Jersey/New York/Pennsylvania so I guess I'm a hybrid blogger to some extent.

Have a great night, everyone!

Blogging has reached a job status for me. I am always thinking of what I should blog about next.

Hi Melina,

I am similar to you. I have some big ambitions for the site in the future.  Right now it is a hobby with potential.

It's a combo of both.  I spend a lot fo time networking and advertising it's existance, publicising posts and seeking guest bloggers.  The goal is to become a full fledged magazine at some point in the future.

 

P.O.V.

For me its a combination of both.  I blog mostly to share things that I know or things that I've learned with others. Its a way for me to establish myself as more than just a novice in the world of creativity and all things handmade!

I wish I had a combination of both, but my hobby blogs have fallen by the wayside because my full-time job is managing a corporate blog.

One of the things I must do for myself is revive the ones that matter to me.

It is definitely both. As a Mom who felt like she had lost herself in Mommy World, it has been an outlet. One that I so desperately needed! I love it. Hopefully, it can become a paying job eventually, but as long as it doesn't feel like a job, that's how I know I am supposed to be doing it! I simply love it!

It is a job and a hobby for me. I use it in part to help promote my business and then as a hobby to put my thoughts out. I currently have three blogs going

I am blogging for a few reasons.  I like to write so it helps me get over writers block and I blog for my business because Im learning and earning.   So I guess I am a blogging combo.

Blogging is more of a hobby for me right now, but I'd like to turn into into something more.  My blog is only a month old and I'm working hard to make it grow, so we'll see what happens!  I should have started blogging a long time ago.  I always thought I would love it, and it turns out I do!

Blogging for us is simply a way to get our voice heard and to share stories and experiences. We are currently looking for Guest Bloggers on our site about Health, Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Food and more :) Let us know if you are interested? - Amy 

Started as a hobby, meshed it's way into my work, gave it break for awhile... and now going full force because part of my job is staying on top of the technological/social trends for small businesses.

I guess it is a hybrid, but if clients know you blog, you have to be very careful what you put out there (as well as on other social media sites.) I've heard horror stories!
