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.

My blog started as a hobby last summer, in October I linked up with two  great affiliates and joined a couple of programs to have money making blogging opportunities.  We had been a one income family for 8 years.  My hubby is thrilled that I have been putting a few hundred in the bank each month.  It is our get out of debt and play money!!  Now my hubby begs me to blog which makes me happy.
It's definitely a hobby but I'm trying to make it a job as well! I'm a single mom and the more money I can make at home to be with my kids the better!!!
I do mine as mostly a hobby. Although I would like to be able to earn money from it. 

Personally I blog because I want to give people an opportunity to feel like they are in a real person's space. Often times people treat their blogs like a shoe store or a car lot. Everything is "Sell, Sell, Sell". Not only is this annoying, but it runs potential customers away.

I take the approach of inviting folks into my home. Let's chat, sip on tea and catch up. Then maybe if you'd like, you can come to a gathering with my other friends and we can network.

So  I do a combo move...I think it's a better fit.

For me it's still a hybrid.

That will hopefully overtime develop into more of a job.

I have my favorite affiliate links on this page if anyone is interested http://athriftydiva.blogspot.com/p/making-money.html

Wow! Thanks for sharing these!  I just started my blog a little over a month ago and was wondering about affiliates.  I am already doing a few of these, but your list will be extremely helpful.  School is almost out so I will have a more time to get serious!

Blogging is a way to pursuing my love of writing. I do it mostly for fun. My latest post is - Do you love your love life? This was my favorite chapter; Meagan saved the best for last.http://boysrising.blogspot.com/2011/06/becoming-happiest-mom-love-y...

For me it is a hobby, although I would like to make a lil money of it since I spend so much time on my blogs. But, it doesn't seem like I have the niche for that, so in the mean time I'll just keep blogging because I enjoy it.

My Meddling Mind

A little of both. I started out blogging as a hobby but it has evolved into a full time job. It would be nice if it was a full time paying job.
I'm in the newborn stages of my blog, so right now it's a hobby an outlet for me while I look for a job.
Right now it's a hobby...a creative outlet, if you will. I'm going through immense difficulty in my pregnancy at the moment and it feels so good to be able to get out my feelings and share experiences with others who have been there and come out of it. Does that make sense?
