Blogging is a hobby first-and-foremost. I don't make money off of it; my blog is too new and unprofessional (design/layout, etc.) to sell advertising or feed Google ads on it yet. I love to write, but I don't find too much free time to do so, which also isn't conducive to making money from it as I do it only when I please. However, I will be making plugs for my business - Tiny Treasures Kids Consignment Sale of New Jersey/New York/Pennsylvania so I guess I'm a hybrid blogger to some extent.
Have a great night, everyone!
Congratulations Jennifer, that is awesome. It is always great to do something that you love.

Blogging has reached a job status for me. I am always thinking of what I should blog about next.
I am similar to you. I have some big ambitions for the site in the future. Right now it is a hobby with potential.

It's a combo of both. I spend a lot fo time networking and advertising it's existance, publicising posts and seeking guest bloggers. The goal is to become a full fledged magazine at some point in the future.
For me its a combination of both. I blog mostly to share things that I know or things that I've learned with others. Its a way for me to establish myself as more than just a novice in the world of creativity and all things handmade!
I wish I had a combination of both, but my hobby blogs have fallen by the wayside because my full-time job is managing a corporate blog.
One of the things I must do for myself is revive the ones that matter to me.
It is definitely both. As a Mom who felt like she had lost herself in Mommy World, it has been an outlet. One that I so desperately needed! I love it. Hopefully, it can become a paying job eventually, but as long as it doesn't feel like a job, that's how I know I am supposed to be doing it! I simply love it!
It is a job and a hobby for me. I use it in part to help promote my business and then as a hobby to put my thoughts out. I currently have three blogs going
I am blogging for a few reasons. I like to write so it helps me get over writers block and I blog for my business because Im learning and earning. So I guess I am a blogging combo.
Blogging is more of a hobby for me right now, but I'd like to turn into into something more. My blog is only a month old and I'm working hard to make it grow, so we'll see what happens! I should have started blogging a long time ago. I always thought I would love it, and it turns out I do!
Blogging for us is simply a way to get our voice heard and to share stories and experiences. We are currently looking for Guest Bloggers on our site about Health, Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Food and more :) Let us know if you are interested? - Amy
Started as a hobby, meshed it's way into my work, gave it break for awhile... and now going full force because part of my job is staying on top of the technological/social trends for small businesses.
I guess it is a hybrid, but if clients know you blog, you have to be very careful what you put out there (as well as on other social media sites.) I've heard horror stories!
A way to share my family with our families!
