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.

Wow, it sounds like I'm the same as everyone here. My blog is intended to generate leads for my real estate business and therefore I very much treat it like a job. But I've always loved to write and the feedback on my stories (I write from a real life/humorous perspective) has been extremely emotionally fulfilling. I consider it component of my career that I very much enjoy right now. I'm not sure it will ever be my goal to be paid to blog, but I definitely hope to generate lots more readers in the future and if revenue comes from that, then so be it! Jobby it is. :D

I definitely agree! It's a hobby for now but somehow I'd like to have a revenue of sorts... :)

I'm absolutely amazed at all the amazing bloggers out there and I'm still learning the ropes so I'm happy w/where I am in the bloggosphere as of now...

Blogging is a hobby for me, but I would love to turn it into a paying job somehow. I approach marketing my blog with the knowledge I acquired on the job though.

I've been blogging for a short time now, but I hardly remember life before blogging and wonder why I didn't get started sooner.

 As of now I'm a low paid intern blogger. Meaning, right now I have one paying gig, that I got through my blog. It's a great opportunity, but can not yet pay the bills.My goal this year is to make a full-time salary.

It's a hobby that allows for me to express myself, get my thoughts out, and at times offer my readers something valuable to them.
I love to write and have been since a young age.  Blogging initially started as a stress release, a place to complain, talk about people, and just be myself and express my thoughts onto paper.  It started as a hobby and I continue to see it as such.  I do see it as both, but it's a job I throughly enjoy doing so it's a bonus :)
For me it has become a part time job and a hobby. I am a SAHM of twins.

It started out as just a hobby, but now I'm trying to make it a combination. I love writing and I enjoy giving my opinion to others, so combining these two passions is ideal. I haven't made any money from my blog yet since I'm still starting out. I've been studying about making it a successful business and working on getting more content posted.

Sharing Bed and Board

Mostly as a hobby, I love blogging. Athough, it would be nice to make a little something of it. If not that's okay, because I have come across some fabulous blogs and people while doing it, and sharing my experiences is pretty awesome too.

blogging is part of my lifestyle as a work-from-home mom.

I don't consider it as a job, but rather a lifestyle -- wherein I can get both worlds of personal freedom and hopefully financial freedom while working on my own anytime, anywhere I want to...

Blogging is primarily a hobby for me. I write professionally and I need a creative outlet at the end of the day. Some place where I can write however I want, using first person pronouns and not worrying about whether it sounds professional, authoritative or fully answers some sort of question. Of course, I do still try to remain grammatically correct, but it is nice to not worry about copy-editors tearing it to pieces!

It is a hobby to me, but also to share hope.
