IFB Poll: Do you blog for fun or money?

Our purpose, our reason for being and why we do what we do at IFB – is to help you make the most of your blog. For many of you, that means growing your blog from a publication into a business. You may be well on your way, wheeling and dealing, selling ad space and collaborating on projects with brands, and you may be posting to your heart's content, with no interest in profiting from your efforts.


Either way, it's all about motivation. We want to provide tools, tips and inspiration for bloggers no matter why they're doing what they're doing. Ultimately, we're just curious! The more we know about why our community is blogging, and what they hope to gain from their experience – that will help us shape our content and our voice into something more valuable for you.


Tell us honestly, now…

    Both! For now it’s for fun, and I wouldn’t be doing it to begin with if it wasn’t for fun, but it would be reallllllly nice if it brought in some revenue when I get better at it, eventually.

    i already have a career that has nothing to do with fashion, so blogging has been a fun & creative way to express myself. i think if i tried to turn it into something more, i would be stressed, overworked & then it would end up being a chore 🙁

    Oo I wish there was a third option! I do it for both. 🙂

    I love my blog. I love the creative outlet. It’s getting to do what I love and do it the way I want. I’m a marketing/communications professional by day, and I love what I do. I have a great team where I work, and I often enjoy much creative freedom, but this is my own outlet…where my only limits are time and exhaustion.
    I love doing what I do – so yes, it’s for fun. As it grows, and I hope it does, I would love to earn income with it as well. If that never happens, that’s perfectly okay with me.

      Hi there,

      Reading your comment i swear I could have written word for word. I feel like I have the best job ever and I make a good living doing something I love. I work in a corporate environment where I have to find a way to be creative while staying within a certain “box”.

      My website/blog is my passion project where I have full creative control. it’s my vision, my baby. Like you said, it’s my creative outlet and honestly it’s very therapeutic.

      I think it’s great that so many people are able to make a living blogging about their passions. To make money doing what you really love would just be icing on the cake.

    its a fun little way of expressing myself at the moment but if in the future I get lucky to own it as a business, i wouldnt mind!:)

    Definitely for fun but also a little bit for money too! It’s nice to be able to do something fun in my free time and make a little extra cash too – IFB is such an encouragement to make the blog better 🙂

    I do blog for fun but I want it to become a business too. I don’t think it can get any better than combining my passion for my blog with work, it’s like getting the best of both worlds!

    I enjoy blogging and i’m definitely not at the stage of making any money from it yet. However I do blog for the opportunities and fashion perks. As a fashion stylist and photographer it also provides a great platform to share my latest work to a large following who already enjoy my posts.

    For fun! My blog is my creative outlet….a way for me to be a fashion “diva” amid my otherwise boring day to day life!

    For me right now, it’s for fun. I think somewhere down the road I’d like to be able to make some money off of it- especially for all the time and money I put into it now.

    I blog for the fun of it. I love keeping a diary of my style and personal life, and that’s exactly what my blog is. However, I’d love to eventually make money from it. It’d be like getting paid to do exactly what I love!!!!

  12. Alexis

    For now I’m blogging just for fun. It’s almost like a diary to me. I wouldn’t mind monetizing it someday, but it’s not quite there yet.

  13. Shasie

    I blog for fun, but I’ve started to make money off of it. It’s nice, but not my entire focus 🙂

  14. Heather

    Right now my blog is mostly a fun creative outlet though I have done a few paid posts. Eventually I’d like to find a way to have it make more money, but I think I need to grow it quite a bit first.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    At the beginning it was for fun but then I started to realize that this was a good way to also make some money. Why not? If you got the skills, time, and creativity you should join the wave.
