I would like to think of them( I went a little overboard and have 12 or 13) as a job, but to be honest the amount of time I have spent on them and the amount of money I have earned would make them more of a hobby than a job. I would like to someday turn them into a job, today was going to be the day I started working on that. Yet here I sit looking at this and other forums instead of actually writing blogs.
I have two other blogs and I run one website for my husband's business. I also have a full time job and two small children so I don't dedicate as much time to the writing as I could.
But I make a decent amount from the blogs and from Hubpages. I can't quit my full time job yet, but that is the goal to eventually do so and write full time.
I haven't done this one very long, but I'm loving it as a hobby, and may make an adsense account sometime to get some money out of it. but so far, this is a great hobby.
I have about 3 blogs that I write on infrequently and one website for the educational software we sell that also has free online educational games for children and a solitaire game I designed that has no numbers. I have a second website for a children's ebook I wrote which features a game my husband designed with the content of the book and some flashcards that I found online. I used to have a dog blog for my little dog Scooter in Scooter's voice and I think I'm going to make that into an ebook because Scooter had some cool observations. I have a hub under this name and another hub under which I write annonymously because of it's nature. I think I'll make that hub into an ebook and take if off of hubpages. I have a few recorded segments called "A Dollop a Day" that I made with oddcast animation that I intended to make into a collection, but stopped. I created an app with ibuidapp.com that just lists phrases that women love to hear from their husbands. I just now am learning that I need to write briefly on my blog about articles and projects and then link the blog to the articles, etc. All if this requires focus which I'm trying to achieve, and while we were hoping our software company would be a viable business it never was, but now I have the dilemma of putting so much work into all of these projects, it seems a waste to let them go, but we simply don't make money. So in essence, I can't call any of this a business because we make pennies on all of it! Therefore, it's all a very expensive hobby. And none of it is leading me to my purpose which I'm getting close to figuring out. If anyone has ideas for me, I'd love to hear them, because to tell you the truth, I'm a bit frazzled and frustrated. I have so much content it's like a house with junk all over the place. It might be worth somethihg, but I can't get it organized enough to even know what I all have so that I can get it ready for sale. And it's not like I'm in my 20s and have time to get this all figured out. Oiy! I need HELP! Aren't you glad you asked this question? I apologize for getting carried away.
Wow - you are a busy woman! I understand all the ideas and then not knowing where to focus and the pennies. I've decided to just focus on one topic for website/blog/fb page, but use HP to write what I like about other things I like, including Paris!
I have three blogs as a hobby, each with its own niche market. Because of a full-time job, I sometimes do not find any time for writing, but I always try to catch up as soon as I have the opportunity.

Why do you write on hubpages rather than making your own blog?I have been thinking about making a blortal(blog portal).

Dear fellow Hubbers, I am in desperate need of some guidance. I am relatively new to HB (8 months now). However, I have not been that active. Lately, though, I have done tons of research and have concluded in numerous keywords I can work on. That said, I am currently flirting with the idea of...
