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.

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?
My blog is definitely a hobby, but I do love to share my pictures from my business Angelia's Photography on there as well.
I started it as a hobby and treated it that way for a long time. I only got serious about it being a business when we made the decision to push harder towards a debt free life and decided that the income from my blogging would get us there faster.
Both. What started as a hobby is now a job (and still a hobby) that I love!
It's sort of a job for me as I'm an author and the blog is a tool to draw traffic toward my web site. But I do find blogging fun also. I consider it like a magazine and I'm the editor, so I enjoy bringing quality content to readers.

Blogging for me is mostly a hobby, but I would like it to generate some income in the future. Although, I don't expect to earn a full time income from blogging. I love to write and am thinking of it more as practice and experience.

My blog was initially intended as a means to drive traffic to my jewelry shop on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/sisterlycreationz).  Now I have begun to rethink blogging and the level of commitment it takes to become a successful blogger.  I have placed my blog on hold for a while so that I can work on creating a new blog dedicated to sharing my story of surviving abuse to help others survive as well.  My new blog will be an adventure as very few people have heard my story and it will be difficult for me to share.  My hope is that I can help at least one person to be able to move past their abuse and not have to live with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder like I have.
My Blog started off as a hobby but now its like my life! LOL  I Love sharing every thing that I Love  all my thoughts and activities with the world!
Blogging is a hobby but I treat it like a job.  I love writing and it is a great creative outlet for me but I also take the social media marketing aspect of it pretty seriously and I am really trying to learn how to do it efficiently and effectively.

I started out just wanting to getmy thoughts down on paper (so to speak). Now i find I look forward to writing those little tidbits everyday!  I am not quite sure if I am getting the whole blogging as a business right, but I do love to get new followers and blog friends.  Please stop by and follow and I will follow back!

Right now, blogging is a hobby for me. I wanted to monetize but all of those sponsored posts and ads seem to take away from my blog, so I've stopped doing a lot of them. 

I love to write! I would love to find a way to make money off of my blog in a way that doesn't jeopardize the integrity...so I am working on that!
