What Kind of Blogger are You?

Tell me your blogging secrets!
When I first forayed into the blogging world it was simply to let off some steam with my favorite creative outlet - writing. I felt I had something to share with other women and parents in the cyber world and through blogging I often found insight and peace in my own situations.

Today, I'm turning from casual blogger to someone who is more focused on gaining a true readership and income from my writing. So, from a personal blog to a blog business. Childcare for 3 kids would cost more than any hourly job would pay and it's been years now since I was truly in the workforce; a decade since I worked for someone else in the US!

Yet, I have no desire to turn my blog into a haven for couponistas. I appreciate the many of you out there, helping everyone who wants to save a buck here and there, but I've never been one to utilize the things regularly! Where are the coupons for fresh fruits and vegetables, I ask you? You certainly don't see farmers offering a $1 off here and there. No, it's major manufacturers of processed food and products.

What kind of blogger are you? What motivates you to put fingertips to keys every day and what do you gain from it? What do you hope to get out of it and are any of you actually making any money by blogging?

Let me hear from you!

  2. I am working up to being a "professional blogger". I am concentrating on the things that have impacted my family - my son's illness, my husband's unemployment, our new puppy, bullying. I think if you continue to blog about what you know you will go far.
