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.

Mine is a job that has facilitated more work for me externally.

I've been blogging since 2005 and it remains the only hobby I've been able to consistently keep up with. It's also a service to my family because I suck at communication, so they can keep up with our lives without me having to pick up the phone. Since we moved from Texas (where my family is) to Alaska this year, it's a way to keep up with people from around the country. You know, when the internet is working.
wow...alaska...no wonder you need to blog to keep in touch! good luck with that. Hope things are well.

Thanks, Lynn! Yeah, my parents weren't too thrilled with the distance thing, but Jens moved to Texas with me so I owe him. And I think it's just for a year, although now it seems to have turned into a year and a summer.

I started off doing my blog as my experience of what happened from leaving home to now ie from being kicked out of home, domestic violence from my ex to where I am now. But I couldn't do it....it hurt me too much....So have started again and decided to blog about how I am now and it's making me feel a lot happier :)

At the moment I am blogging for a hobby:

I love blogging. I do it for my business but I love the social aspect of it. Getting to know other moms from their blogs is interesting to say the least.
My blogging is a combination of job and hobby as I sew children clothes and blog about it. It's a job but also a hobby as I'm not making a living out of it. Then blogging about what I have sewn is just fun!! And to get feedback about what other people think about it.
For me it's both. I started the blog to write about my soap business, but ended up enjoying posting more recipes and everyday-life stuff. I don't make money from my blog, but I do think that it helps my business.

Right now a hobby, but I would love for it to be a part time paying job someday.
For now a hobby, but if it could turn into more that would be awesome Its new to us and fun...alot more fun than my day job which I am writing from as we speak. Doh!

A way to get rid of the stories that write themselves in my head!
Blogging imposes the discipline of daily writing, which helps with my writing skills.
It is a way to connect. Just about when I think I'm going to give up blogging, someone who I see only occasionally will tell me how they love keeping up with me by blog or how much they enjoyed a post.
I also have a few daily readers who will notify me if they think I'm not blogging often enough.
It certainly isn't a job. If I could beg all of my readers to click on the adsense ads, I might make a little money, but the terms of agreement say you can't ask people to click on your ads.
Blogging is my business! I have turned my hobby into a business in a little over a year and an half. I'm happy to be doing this as my day job and taking care of my kids at the same time. We are in the process of hiring a staff right now and taking the business offline as well. I'm really excited about our new venture. I (like many of you) have put a lot of hard work into my writing and am so glad that it is paying off (and paying some bills). :)
