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 job for me. When my son was born, I left the company where I'd worked for 7+ years, to become a SAHM. Seven months into my new "career", my former company asked if I'd write a mommy blog to support their birth announcement market. It's an amazing opportunity that I'm so thankful to have!

Blogging is a hobby for me. I am just documenting life. It's easier than keeping a diary and I hope that one day my son will enjoy all the things I have written over the years. I'm certainly not a professional blogger.
Hobby, very much so. But, I like to use my blog to spread the word about organizations I believe in and support. I get paid in gratitude and knowing I'm helping others learn a little bit more about what is going on in this world.
I have a personal blog for a hobby, but I work on the blog for my organization as well, MomsRising.org. It's really fun to see where the discussions take off, what other moms and caregivers are thinking about.
