Hmmm. . . . . Professional. What Does That Mean?

Today's NaBloPoMo writing prompt is:


Do you consider yourself a "professional" blogger? Why or why not? What does that mean to you?

Once upon a time, I was a professional blogger.  Or a hobbyist.  I truly never made enough money to call blogging a career.  But, I made a little money that made it a nice paying hobby.  Writing is fun.  Reading is fun.  Doing crafts is fun.  Reviewing products is fun.  Fun, fun, fun. 

But then it became stressful.  Maybe it was my profession!  Ha!  (wink, wink)

I consider a "professional" blogger someone who does it as a way to make money or who is attempting to do it as a career.  Right now, that's just not me.  I am back after being burned out.  After my family asked me stop because it was taking too much time.  After I felt like maybe I was exposing too much. 

I needed a break.  I took a break.  I need to blog.  My break is done. 

Do I think I'll ever get back to where I was? 
I'm not sure.
But, I'll have fun getting to wherever blogging is going to take me this time.
I don't know if that will become a "career" or a "nice paying hobby" again.

All I know is I love words.  And I love people who love words.  And I love to write words. 

And I'm silly.  And I'm back.  For now.
