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.

A little bit of both. Though I'm not making any money just yet, I'm using it for marketing purposes for my soon to open online gift shop!

Hobby :-) But more like only place I can talk so I don't go insane LOL

a Business.  although I've been blogging since 2009.  I started out making about $.33/day!  blogging takes a tremendous amount of time and dedication.  believe in yourself and you can turn it into something quite profitable.  for me it is also a luxury to be able to stay home with my kids.

Blogging is a release. Blogging is never a  job and always fun. I never feel obligated to do it, because I simply enjoy it too much. Blogging is a place to organize my thoughts and find others who have the same thoughts, those who can respond. I absolutely adore blogging.

I think its both!  I love blogging and its also nice if it pays.. but so far its not a job :) I'd be happy to know if anyone else do it as job...

My blogs are a part of me, a source of income, a marketing tool...a way of life! :)

Currently it is to grow as a Christian.  I am happy to blog about what I am doing with my children and as a wife and mother.  Come and see my fb page at https://www.facebook.com/FaithFamilyFashion!  I am very new but would love the support!  Thank you and Blessings!

Blogging for me is a way to express my thoughts, a marketing tool and a hobby. I wouldn't consider it a job because it's something I like to do not have to do.

Before 2006, I had no inkling what blogging was about. Can you imagine, I started blog for political reasons. to make a difference in my country. To make waves. How cool (or hot) is that? I was an editor with a newspaper (which i joined since 1978)  but left in 2006 for personal/professional reasons. I immediately joined my family media consultant company. Then something happened. A close friend (a blogger) was sued by the very newspaper for which i had worked. A libel suit. For me -- how could a newspaper sue a blogger -- to me a blogger is a writer? Newspapers get sued but they do not sue, as a matter of principle. So, that was when my life as a blogger began. But blogging opened up a whole new vista for me. A whole new world where I connected with the world. Literally.

Still a passion. I don;t do it for money. But the recognition I get as a blogger is and can be overwhelming.

A hobby, I enjoy doing it very much. It is also a form of therapy and a way to relax, while hopefully carrying a message to those who have similar experiences. :)

I'm completely new to blogging but would like to turn it into a full time job.I'm loving every bit of it.

Do stop by my new blog at http://www.mamasview.blogspot.com

I am new to blogging.  It is a way for me to grow stonger as a Women of Faith.  I was a Christian teacher 10 years, now mother of three.  Come check out my blog or FB page. 

Blessings!
