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.

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.

I just started blogging, so right now it's a hobby. I don't know if I could blog enough to make it a business.

I have been blogging for years as a hobby to keep far away family and friends updates on our lives. Recently I have decided to start a new blog and try and break into blogging as a business. I really love to share my ideas with others so I am constantly looking for new and exciting people to follow/ visit my blog. I love leaving comments on other's blogs and love reading the few my blog has picked up so far!

I just starting blogging in Sept. 2010 and am so addicted. I find writing to be therapeutic and never realized I had so much to say. My husband agrees that I've been a happier person since starting to blog (not that I wan unhappy before, but you know what i mean.) So, I guess I use blogging as an outlet and find comfort in other blogs.

I would love to say one day that blogging is my job, because it comes so naturally and aren't you suppose to make a job out of something you love? That's what I've heard anyway:)

My blog is neither a job nor a hobby, It is therapy.

 

I started blogging when I was home on mat leave with my first son.  I was exhausted and frustrated and lonely.  Blogging helped me talk to someone, even if there was no one talking back.  I took a long hiatus when I returned to work.  My husband ended our marriage and left me recently and one of the first things I started to do was blog again.  I have lots of supportive family and friends and I am seeing a therapist, but blogging lets me say anything I want when I want.

It is mostly a hobby, I really enjoy it. But if I could earn an income on the side that would be pretty awesome!

Blogging is a hobby for me right now. However, being that I write for a living, I am hoping to one day earn from my blogging venture. I hope to be an authoritative blog for moms who work from home, particularly those who are freelance writers.

Right now blogging is a hobby, but I would love for it to turn in to a combination... we will have to see as I just started at the beginning of 2011! :)
