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 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.

I guess it would be a hobby for me.

A combination.  I am really enjoying trying to add a post per day.  I find it so therapeutic to consistently write down my thoughts.  I have recently added two adsense units and might add individual advertisers in the future.

I think it is def a hobby for me though as it is rolling up to a year i need to turn it around and would like to premote stuff and have give aways and make it still a hobby but more like a hybrid but dont know where to start!

Blogging is a hobby for me. I feel that i have something important to say and so I am making an effort to blog and keep on blogging. Hopefully I will be a great blogger one day. I need to start by cutting down my nails. :)

Happy Blogging.

 

Be blessed!

 

For me blogging is my first solo unscripted adventure with the public. Living a public life in the gossip capital people like to spread rumors blogging gives me a way to connect and show our side of the story a little as well as show that we aren't that unlike the rest of the world so I guess it's a hobby.
