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.

It started as a hobby and now it has become a part time job! I still have a lot of fun though, I am still learning about blogging and coming up with new ideas. Also seeing other blogs is inspiring!

I have one blog for my own hobby..outlet...and another for buisness making childrens wall art.


It's a hobby, I absolutely enjoy blogging:)


Both I guess.  I don't want to have my blog just be about "buying my stuff" or updated listiing of my inventory. I wanted it to be about my trials of techniques and of trying to run a small business with my young family.   Blogging is a way of connecting with people I hope I can use it well. 

Right now it's a hobby for me, but you never know what the future holds! 



A hobby. I love to cook, so I blog about the recipes I find and use. It also helps me remember which recipes I liked so I can find the link to use it again. I also blog to get freebies for my boys, which are great.



It started as a hobby/fun but it is a business now! I love it!

For 5 years, blogging was a hobby that i wanted to grow but never had the time or energy to do, but now that the kids are getting older, it's starting to grow a bit and it's exciting! I am a writer turned stay at home mom, so blogging was a great outlet for me. Now that I'm getting to do cooler stuff with my blog, it's starting to feel like it used to when I worked (which is a good thing! Writing for actual money and a few perks is nice!)

*snicker*  Well, since I started it about a week ago, I'd have to say "hobby" :P  It's fun though, I like having a place to share and mouth off!

Blogging for me is purely enjoyment. I love writing, finding connection between others, and graphics and photography. For me, it combines all the aspects of a professional life that I would love in my dream job...second to being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom, that is.

I do however keep my eye and ear open for possibly monetizing more in the future, dependent on my own career path as the kids get older, my own interests, and whether or not my audience grows to a point where that makes sense.

It is hobby that has slowly but surely turned into a part time job.  I love what I do and hope I can find time to put more into it-so that it can grow.


Savin' It Up

Blogging is my mental sanity! I love to write and have information to share so I figured why not blog? I would love for it to become a job someday (actually get paid for doing something I love).  Right now i'm just helping to make life easier for a few parents out there who learn anything from my posts. 

Blogging has also been a form of maintaining adult contact and conversation. I'm at home with my 2 year old twins as a stay at home mom and blogging helps me give my brain a work out so that i'm not only thinking about who hasn't pooped today. I really don't want to revert to primitive language so that I start thinking "mommy no want to go store".

Life has drastically changed since mother-hoood and twindom. It's been quite the adjustment going from working as an RN to staying at home with twins. 

As I type this my little ones have decided they both need to be in my lap. Of course, neither wants to share this lap. I guess that ends my time here. Maybe I can return during nap time....
