Hi I'm Suzi, I'm a mom just like you.
I’m a blogging mom and have two little ones under three. I want to show you how to start a mom blog while raising a family. My time saving and productivity tips will make your life easier and help you run a successful blog!
I launched this blog three weeks before the birth of my second daughter and in less than a year I was making over $6,000 per month.
TIP 1 – BLOG TOPIC
Find a topic you are passionate about or something you want to learn more about. Blogging can be a way to share your knowledge or share your journey! Here’s help to choose an awesome blog niche and name!
TIP 2 – BE UNIQUE
Decide what will make you unique. Many moms never start a blog because they fear there are already too many blogs. If you allow your unique personality to shine through you will grow a following. Just like people have multiple friends, they also follow multiple blogs.
TIP 3 – HAVE GOALS
Have a long term goal for starting a blog as a mom. What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to contribute to the family finances? Do you want to make a bit of side income? Do you want to help your husband work less hours? Where do you want to be in 5 years. Starting and running a successful blog takes effort, make sure you know your long term mission.
TIP 4 – BUILD A PROFESSIONAL BLOG
Because there are so many blogs out there, you do need to create a professional looking blog. With today’s technology this is super easy. And my step by step blogging course for moms walks you through it. You do not need to pay hundreds of dollars for a professional blog, I will teach you how to do it yourself!
TIP 5 – BUILD A FOLLOWING
Decide one 2 or 3 social media platforms maximum to grow your blog’s following. Do not overexert yourself trying to be on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, SEO, Twitter etc. Take one platform at a time and grow your following there. I love Pinterest for passive income!
TIP 6 – BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST
Build your email list from day one. Decide on an amazing freebie that is completely focused on your reader. A checklist, a how to guide, or a printable are all great ideas! If you help your reader solve a problem, they will gladly join your email list. These subscribers will become your future customers, treat them with lots of love!
TIP 7 – NETWORK WITH OTHER BLOGGERS
Blogging is a great way to network and connect with other amazing mom bloggers on the internet. Share ideas, build friendships and help each other grow your blog. I recently did a collaboration with a fellow mom blogger and together we published this amazing ebook on how to make money with affiliate marketing!
TIP 8 – MAKE MONEY
There are five main ways to make money with a mom blog. You can sell products, services, do sponsored posts, have ads on your blog, or use affiliate marketing. Use multiple methods to make money with your blog and do not rely on just one money making method. I’ve personally had amazing success with my products and affiliate marketing. In less than a year I grew my blog to over $6,000 a month!
TIP 9 – WRITE CONSISTENTLY
You don’t have to publish a blog post every single day. That is putting too much pressure on yourself and it’s unreasonable as a new blogger. Start with once every two weeks, then once a week, and slowly get into a consistent rhythm. And if you miss a week you can always post a quick video, image or Facebook post letting your readers know you’re uber busy. Allowing yourself to be real on your blog will attract more loyal followers.
TIP 10 – PRIORITIZE
When you are first learning how to start a mom blog you can become overwhelmed very quickly. That is why I highly recommend going through a step by step course to save you hours of anxiety and overwhelm. You can also use my super easy trick of prioritizing your life so you can focus on the right things!
TIP 11 – KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS
Ultimately, it’s not up to any one person to make you a successful blogger. It is up to you. All the power and drive lies within yourself. If you consistently focus on the right things, if you stay positive and continue to learn, you too can make thousands per month online. You can do this, you just have to be willing to put in the hard work.
I'm your online mommy friend teaching you how to start a mom blog.
I studied Industrial Engineering and was in the corporate world for a few years implementing Lean Six Sigma. When my first daughter was born, I became a stay at home mom.
Because of my technical background and my lack of cooking skills, I wanted to share with other moms how they can start a mom blog too without worrying that they are not techy enough or do not have enough time.
I want to be your go-to technical mom friend that you can email anytime asking for help on your blog or even if you just need to vent about the struggles of motherhood.
I am here for you!
