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 think I am definitely a hybrid, although I am working on a couple of different projects that I hope to have become a career.
I wish that blogging was my job. I try to treat it as a job so that one day it will be my job. I also love it so much it feels like a hobby.
I would have to say blogging for me is a combination. I'm a writer so, blogging relaxes me, it helps me get all of this stuff that I have floating around in my head, and its a job because it helps me promote my business.
Blogging for me is just a hobby. It is my way to keep my family up to date to what we do all day and to see pictures of my daughter growing up. Mainly my blog is just a place for me to put down my thoughts and events. I would love to make money doing it, but I think when that happens it may become to much of a chore. At least that is what I worry about. But I don't see that happening ever.
At the moment it is a hobby, but would love to be able to make money from it. It would be nice to blog for a living! I am working on marketing myself at the moment, so who knows what will happen.
Definitely a combination of both for me!
It started as a hobby and is changing, but I don't think it will ever be totally a job.
I'm pretty much in the hybrid phase of job/hobby but I'm treating it like a job -- have been for more than a year now -- and hope it soon becomes my primary source of income.

Here's my hybrid: Grandma's Briefs
therapy.
Blogging for me has become a combination of both job and hobby. It is something which I am passionate about and go in it as a 9-5 plus overtime and absolutely love it!
I'd say it's a hobby. I am trying to make some money at it, but I know even if I never made a penny I would keep it going. I work incredibly hard on my blog though and for it to generate some income for my family would NEVER be a bad thing.
My long term goal is for it to be a hybrid of both.
Mine started out as a simple way to organize my thoughts into sections that would make it easy for printing into something I could pass on to children some day. Which is something my mom has been talking about doing for years. But then one day I earned a follower that I did not personally know. Which was super exciting, and now its a hobby. Although someday I hope I can turn it into something bigger.
I have been blogging for a little over 3 years. I have three blogs that I post to regularly. One for my art. I do mixed media and am on the design team for an image sheet company Altered By Me

One for giveaways and reviews Times R Tuff

And one that is my cooking blog Flour On My Face

I started out with the art blog. I would post pictures of the art I created and talk about the technique. Once I joined the design team I had to showcase my art work using the images from the company I work with. I also post to the blog from the image company.

Then I added the cooking blog. I love to cook and bake. I make alot of homemade things like bread, yogurt and cheese. So I will share what I make on it.

And the newest is my giveaway/review blog. I started this one because I did not want to post about giveaways and reviews on the other two when the giveaways/review had nothing to do with the subjects if my blogs. But I also will do a cooking giveaway /review on my cooking blog as they come along.

I think blogging is kind of addicting. I enjoy writing so blogging is a writing outlet also.

I would love to earn a living from my blogging so that is the goal I am working towards now.
