Mom blogs are easily one of the best online resources for mothers looking for parenting advice, life hacks, frugal living tips, and funny stories. They are meant to be equally as informative as they are entertaining.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a mom blog for awhile, don’t let anything hold you back. Thanks to the larger reader base that the mom blog niche enjoys, your new blog will have great potential for success.
Four tips for starting a successful mom blog
Have An Active Social Media Presence
Establishing yourself on social media is something you should do even before starting a blog. Social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter are the perfect outlets for sharing content, interacting with users, finding like minded groups, and just building your brand.
Once you start your blog, you can use your already established presence on your social media accounts to share your new posts and get instant readers. In fact, a sizable percentage of your future readers are likely to first find you through social media outlets rather than through search engines.
Settle On A Theme For Your Blog
The most successful mom blogs all have one thing in common: they focus on a specific theme. There are an extremely wide variety of themes for you to choose from as well. Your blog can be about beauty trends, frugal living hacks, how to parent children with special needs, how to furnish your home, or whatever else you have in mind.
Perhaps the best piece of advice that can be given to any blogger is to just be yourself. For readers to connect with you as a person, your personality and your unique voice have to show in your writing. Otherwise, your blog won’t stand out from the literally thousands of other mom blogs that are on the internet.
Readers will quickly get annoyed if they find they don’t know when to expect a new post. To remedy this, come up with a posting schedule and make it a rule to write and publish a new post at least once a week. While being a good writer is one key to becoming a successful blogger, consistency is another.
To inform readers and visitors of your posting schedule, consider writing it out under the name of your blog. For example, at the top of the welcome page where you have your blog name and logo, underneath that in smaller letters you could write something like “New Posts Every Monday” or “New Posts Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.”
Starting A Mom Blog
Running a mom blog is a very fun and rewarding experience, and by applying what you have learned will help grow your blog so it becomes more successful than you have ever imagined.
