Starting A Mom Blog 101

Starting a mom blog is a great way to earn some extra money while working from the comfort of your home. If you plan on making a living out of your blog, then you'll need to invest plenty of time, effort, and some money into it as well. You can write about anything from cooking to homeschooling or juggling work and mom duties - the possibilities are endless. However, you will have to focus on a specific niche to keep your readers focused. That's just one of the steps to starting a mom blog. If you'd like to learn more, keep reading because we have a comprehensive little guide on writing your successful mom blog.

Opt for a blogging niche
Once you decide to start a blog, it would be good to know which niche you’d feel the most comfortable writing. It doesn’t necessarily have to be just one niche, but you can focus your blog on two to three closely connected niches. For instance, a lifestyle niche can include cooking, health & fitness, beauty, and fashion. If you want to start a How-To blog, that can be another lucrative and entertaining option. It’s essential that you write about topics you know plenty about so that your blog can be an invaluable source of information for other moms. That’s how they’ll help you spread the word about the blog and potentially make it beyond successful.

Decide on a blogging platform
The next step includes choosing a blogging platform for your future blog. You can decide on either a hosted blog or a self-hosted blog. Hosted blog platforms include Wix, SquareSpace, Blogger, and similar spaces where you will only rent an online space, so to speak, and start your blog from there. It’s a more affordable option that many people choose for eCommerce shops, for instance. Artist selling their work and restaurant owners are known to use such platforms because they have no intention of creating blogs that can potentially bring them money. A self-hosted WordPress blog, on the other hand, will help you generate revenue.

Choose a proper blog domain
One of the most important aspects of your mum blog is choosing your personal domain name. If you’re struggling to come up with something catchy and creative, we know how to sparkle your imagination.
• Your domain name can convey the mission of your blog.
• It shouldn’t be too similar to blog names that you’ve come across before.
• The blog name should grasp the attention of the reader quickly and be easy to remember.

Those are just some keynotes to keep in mind before you create a personal website and start your mom blog journey. As long as the website name is catchy, intriguing, and creative, you'll have no problem attracting the audience to your blog.

Come up with an attractive design
A visually appealing design is one of the crucial steps in creating a blog. Just think about all the past blogs you've read. A whimsical, eye-pleasing theme and design alongside easily readable font is of the essence to make you want to stay and search through the blog. If the font is difficult to read, and the colours don't complement each other but make your eyes sore, making you zoom on the content, the design is not appropriate. Browse through an array of online website themes and install the one that will best represent your character and taste, but that will be aesthetically pleasing too.

Start writing
Once your blog domain is set, your theme installed, and your niche is chosen, it's time to start writing. To avoid coming up with new topics on the spot, note down all those topics that pop to mind while you're shopping or watching other moms' YouTube vlogs. More often than not, an idea will pop up in the middle of the night or while you're spending time with your bundle of joy. It would be best to create a schedule for your blog and publish your posts regularly every week. Be it once, twice, or three times a week, as long as you're consistent, your blog will generate traffic, and revenue will soon come too.

If you’ve carefully read through all the steps we listed, you’re ready to start your mum blogger journey. It won’t be as difficult as it may seem at first, as long as you stick to or tips and invest all of your spare time and creativity in it.
