Personally I blog because I want to give people an opportunity to feel like they are in a real person's space. Often times people treat their blogs like a shoe store or a car lot. Everything is "Sell, Sell, Sell". Not only is this annoying, but it runs potential customers away.
I take the approach of inviting folks into my home. Let's chat, sip on tea and catch up. Then maybe if you'd like, you can come to a gathering with my other friends and we can network.
So I do a combo move...I think it's a better fit.
For me it's still a hybrid.
That will hopefully overtime develop into more of a job.
Wow! Thanks for sharing these! I just started my blog a little over a month ago and was wondering about affiliates. I am already doing a few of these, but your list will be extremely helpful. School is almost out so I will have a more time to get serious!

Blogging is a way to pursuing my love of writing. I do it mostly for fun. My latest post is - Do you love your love life? This was my favorite chapter; Meagan saved the best for last.http://boysrising.blogspot.com/2011/06/becoming-happiest-mom-love-y...
For me it is a hobby, although I would like to make a lil money of it since I spend so much time on my blogs. But, it doesn't seem like I have the niche for that, so in the mean time I'll just keep blogging because I enjoy it.
