“In fact, one in five moms surveyed by BabyCenter have started a blog with substantial followers, and more than half reported plans to start their own business.”
I’m a millennial mom. I have two little girls, 2 years and 6 months. And I’m a blogger. I fall into this statistic.
I did a bit of research and lots of phone interviews with other millennial blogging moms. And I finally got to the bottom of this.

Think about these reasons while you go about your day today. And realize that the future online business scene is quickly changing. These up and coming mommies are not your average ‘mommy bloggers.’
They Grew Up With This – It’s So Natural
Millennials are those born in the early 1980’s – 2000’s. They grew up with the internet, instant access to information, with cheap cell phones and picture messages. They started social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest.
The millennials are growing up and starting to have children. And these mommies are hyper connected to all the above mentioned social media sites.
They regularly post the cute pictures of their babies on Instagram and throw Pinterest style parties. Social media is second nature to them.
They are unafraid to be vocal with the world and share their advice. They are already active online – it is only natural that they start blogging to make money from what they already do daily.
They Are Too Smart and Passionate
Millennial moms are smart. They are educated.
“Since 1982, more bachelor’s degrees have been earned in the United States by women than by men. Women now also earn the majority of master’s degrees and doctoral degrees in the U.S. ” According to a study by the Pew Research Center and Mitch McConnell in 2014.
Because of our grandmothers, we want to be stay at home moms, and because of our own mothers, we want to be in the workforce.
Many millennial women have received an education and have become mothers. And if they decided to stay at home raising their children, they have searched for a creative outlet to continue to exercise their brains. They have turned to blogging. But it’s more than just blogging as you may be familiar with it, today these women are starting their own online business.
And to those millennial moms that work part or full time. They have also turned to starting their online businesses.
Building an online platform is essential today if you want to grow in any type of entrepreneurial venture.
