Mommy Blogging – How to Make Money with It

The sensation of mommy blogs has been sweeping the blogosphere for a few years now. The “mommies” behind these blogs are in essence keeping an online diary of their lives in their little corner of the world. Bloggers that are able to monetize their blog are making anywhere from a couple hundred dollars a month to a thousands every month.

The best way to get started is to start blogging on a free site such as WordPress or BlogSpot. Here is where you can start creating your online diary, figure out your writing style, find topics that get views and comments, as well as figuring out your level of dedication and making sure that you enjoy writing these posts on a regular basis.

When you first create your blog, even through a site like BlogSpot, the first thing you need to do is create a name. Think ahead about what you want to be known as throughout the blogging world. This name stays with you as your blog grows, so make sure to take the time to think it through. The name of your blog can also set a theme for the theme you want your blog to follow.

One of the perks of having other mommy blogs already around in the blogosphere is that not all “mommy blogs” can only be about being a “mommy”. These blogs can focus on anything from the highs and lows of parenting, to outfits of the day, finding deals at the grocery store, to tips for traveling in the bloggers hometown. Find an aspect to focus on to get started, and as you grow you can learn from your readers what more they want from you. Use feedback you receive in comments and through emails to create a blog your readers will find interesting, keep them hooked, and talk to their friends about.

Once you’ve committed to blogging and you have decided to take your brand to the next level, it’s time to invest in your own domain name. Use this domain name in all your other branding – ie twitter, facebook, instagram etc. You can use all of these forms of social media to lead people to your blog, which creates more traffic and creates more opportunity for monetizing your blog.

A few final tips for creating the best blog you can – make your blog posts error free. Readers will not take your seriously as a writer if there are grammar errors throughout your posts. Use keywords within your posts to generate traffic, however don’t fill them with only keywords. Make sure your blog maintains it’s focus and entertainment value while still using keywords to generate a higher level of traffic.

Blogging requires dedication and focus, however it is a great way for stay at home moms to have a creative outlet, connect with other people in similar situations as them, as well as making some money on the side – all from the comfort of their home!

    Hi John,

    I don’t know where you get your inspiration from.

    I guess that’s why I’m not a hugely successful blogger. I need to have great ideas like this.

  4. Now mommies are opting to enter into blogosphere.It is a good sign for all of us.thanks

    Blogging is for everyone!

    Sounds like a very sound approach for making a solid income. If what you are saying is interesting enough, people will follow you. It’s just human nature 🙂

    I like the idea of building something and watching the results snowball over time. I read a lot of weight loss blogs written by women and they throw in a lot about their personal lives too.

    It seems to work for them!

  7. I’m a newbie mommy blogger and I’d also like to add that blogging on a consistent basis can also help to strengthen writing, communication and networking skills. These are transferable skills that could also be used in the workforce if ever needed.

  8. Thank you for sharing!

  9. Hi John,

    I think it’s great how something you initially start as a hobby can eventually turn into a business, even a very successful one. I expect a lot of mommies don’t start off with the intent of making money from their blogs.

    Thanks for the post!

    I think it’s better for mommies to put more of their content on their own blogs/websites rather than to put everything on Facebook. I see many, many people post enough content on Facebook to fill up volumes of novels and not get compensated for it. Having their own blogs/websites will help them to potentially acquire an income stream using their sites.
    Thanks for this post recognizing hard-working mothers.

    Cheers

  12. Edgar says:

    I agree mommy blogs can be sussful. Having a good domain is a must. Iam actually selling MommysDiary.com let me know if anyone is interested.

  13. Hey John,
    Don’t forget daddy blogging. Like I.C. Daniel mentioned above, blogging is for everybody.

  14. Lakhyajyoti says:

    Great post. I know many mommy bloggers and few of them are really awesome. Thanks for the share.

  15. Jasky says:

    I think this is a very good and easy way for stay at home ‘moms’ to create their own source of income.
    There are a lot of things that mothers are very competent in and can share that information easily on a blog and monetize it to create income for themselves.
    The topics that they can blog on are just endless; from home making, to home finance/budget management, grooming, parenting, cooking, etc.
    The resources to get this happening even abound everywhere on the internet.
    I think the most important thing for the to do to make this valuable and profitable will be to create a new discipline and habit of blogging i.e. writing out the blog post and publishing it to the blogs at regular intervals since a lot of things are always competing for their attention at home.
    Thanks

  16. Hello John,

    While I essentially agree with you that the ‘mommies’ can also make money blogging, I cannot see exactly how exactly they would make it blogging if they simply follow these simple steps outlined here.

    The reason is quite simple: blogging has become so complex and competitive that only a systematic approach would record success. And then, some real hard work. Nothing short would suffice!

    Great entry all the same!

    Always,
    Terungwa
