7 Mom Blogs That Make Money Blogging

1. What Moms Love

Aly’s blog, What Moms Love is a parenting blog focussing on family/mom/kids. She and her content team provide helpful ideas, tips and recommendations to make busy moms’ lives easier!

I love this blog and all the content on it. Her pins are beautiful and are always on my feed!

Her blog has many different topics and each post are mostly huge roundups with even more tips and more products. This is like a mom blog on sterioids! But you know what? This started with one mama and it’s grown to this magnitude!

2. Swaddles n’ Bottles

I love Caroline’s blog, Swaddles n’ Bottles (isn’t that just the best title?!).

What I like about her pregnancy and new baby blog is that her content is authentic and personal. She shares her story of pregnancy and being a mom and you know that what she recommends to her readers are things she’s used in the past!

If you’re pregnant or a new mom Caroline’s blog has all the resources for you!

3. This Tiny Blue House

Jenny’s blog This Tiny Blue House is amazing! It’s a frugal living blog but she has soo many amazing round up posts of the best crafts, holiday ideas and recipes!

What amazes me is that her blog is a frugal living blog that helps people save money. But she’s able to earn money doing this (and she does it effectively too!).

If you decide to do a blog with multi-topics, breaking your blog up with distinct categories is helpful for your audience!

4. Coffee and Coos

Alexandra’s blog, Coffee and Coos is a pregnancy and motherhood blog!

I love her blog even though I’m not pregnant! She has amazing hacks and she tells you what it’s really like in your first trimester as a newly pregnant mom! And don’t you just LOVE her blog name?

Income sources in order or highest earnings to lowest:

If you have time, offering a service is a quick way to start generating income from your blog!

This is how I started blogging at first! I started a freelance writing blog and over time was able to replace my full-time income only working part-time hours!

4. Real Mom Recs

Caitlin blog Real Mom Recs is a parenting blog for moms. She mostly blogs about pregnancy, parenting, and Disney travel!

What I love about her blog is that she doesn’t shy away from personal topics. From being authentic on her blog, she’s built a strong audience, which has helped her create valuable content for them.

In turn, she generates income from her mom blog.

Brandi’s blog Family Felicity is a lifestyle blog but she’s pivoting it to be more of a parenting and family blog. She’s a mom to three kids and her and her husband have been working from home for over ten years!

Her blog is perfect for moms in the thick of parenting toddlers and kids (that’s me!!). Her positive parenting tips are relatable to all moms and what you will find in this list of mom blogs is that if your audience is large you can still connect with them and grow your traffic and income.

6. Smart Mom Ideas

Smart Mom Ideas is one of my blogs! I’ve had this blog for around 18 months and it has started generating income.

Could I have made money sooner? Yes. I could have as soon as I took over this blog, but my main business and my Twins Mommy blog are my focus, so I couldn’t invest in the time until just recently.

Smart Mom Ideas originally was a lifestyle parenting blog with topics around frugal living, organizing and mom life. But, recently I pivoted to a pregnancy and postpartum tips blog.

Smart Mom Ideas earns around $600/month.

Income sources in order or highest earnings to lowest:

  • Ads
  • Amazon affiliate marketing

I just recently signed up for more affiliate programs for courses and will work on creating content that features these new affiliate products. While I told myself that I wanted to ONLY do Amazon affiliate marketing, I found this a challenge from the first day. Since the commission for Amazon products is very low, you need to generate a lot of clicks per day.

It was only recently that I’m generating sales every day. This took around 8 months of actively trying new tactics.

7. Journey to SAHM

Samantha of Journey to SAHM is the newest blog on this list. Her blog is only 7 months old and her blog was making income in her second month blogging! You go mama!

Samantha’s blog is a lifestyle parenting blog with focus on mom life and saving money. As you can see from this list, a lifestyle blog can definitely make money!

Journey to SAHM earns around $250/month

Income sources in order or highest earnings to lowest:

  • Sponsored posts
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Ads

While her blogging income isn’t a lot, isn’t amazing that her mom blog is making money? Just imagine – your blog, your writing and your time to promote your blog on social media is actually making money! That’s awesome!

Blogging Tips for Moms

If you want to start a family and parenting blog or a mom lifestyle blog, my suggestion is to get to know other blogs in that niche. For example, you can use Pinterest and search for topics in the parenting niche to get an idea for blog topics.

I can type in “toddler tantrum” on Pinterest and see what comes up:

From here you can decide on your blog audience. Will you create content to help:

  • Moms with newborns?
  • Moms with toddlers?
  • Moms with kids?
  • Moms with multiple kids?
  • Single moms with kids?
  • Moms with girls
  • Moms with boys

Once you narrow down your audience you can start creating content just for them.

How Do I Start Making Money With My Mom Blog?

The real answer to this is commitment and passion.

Love what you blog about, serve your audience with the best types of valuable blog posts and you will build a tribe that wants to buy from you mamas.

The second part of this equation is getting that audience, or blog traffic, to your blog. It’s hard to monetize a blog with little traffic (although the only way I know you can do that is if you offer a service).

To help you out, here are my best posts about building traffic for your mom blog:

Once you start building your blog traffic, you can position your blog posts to help answer their questions and help them through their problems and challenges. Just like with this post, I’m helping moms understand that it is possible to make money with mom blogs and then I share tips on how to get started.

If you can provide a blog post that helps your readers, you will grow your traffic and income!

How Do I Write a Blog Post?

The one way people will know you is through your blog posts. They will find it on Pinterest or Instagram or Facebook and click on your link to read it.

So, your writing has to really hook them from the first impression!

Here are some tips to help you with that:

  • Have a clickable headline – The very first introduction of your blog is your headline when they see it on social media. Make it juicy and clickable.
  • Introduce the problem in the beginning – A good trick to use is to think like your audience and make your writing align to what your reader is thinking so that they are constantly nodding their head, “yes! She gets me!”
  • Make your blog post easy to read – Make sure to add subheadings and break up your post to make it easy to read and no just skim!
  • Have a call to action – It’s important at the end of your blog post to have a CTA – a call-to-action. This is something you want your audience to do. It can be to sign up to your email list or answer a question in the comments.

What Is the Best Blogging Platform?

The only blogging platform I use for all my blogs is WordPress.org This is a self-hosted platform.

By having a self-hosted blog using WordPress you can monetize your blog and know that your content belongs to you (and not WordPress). WordPress also has a library of plugins. These are features that help manage your blog and grow your blog.

What Should I Blog About?

You want to start a mom blog but what should your blog be about?

There are many blogging ideas to help you get started but to figure out what YOU want to blog about consider these three ways:

  • Fill the empty space to stand out in your blog niche – this means finding blogs you enjoy reading and seeing any gaps in their content. Your blog can fill that empty space.
  • Look to your passions – blogging is a long term game and the things you write about today should inspire to you create that same content years down the road. So make sure that your blog niche is a passion topic of yours.
  • Have a journey blog – want to learn something new? Blog about that new learning experience and help others learn it too. You’re new to Pinterest, well have a Pinterest blog and share what you are learning!

How Will I Find Time to Start a Mom Blog?

I get it –

Your little one is your focus for the day. Or, you have a full-time job and run a busy house. How can you fit blogging in that time?

First, once you make the decision to start a mom blog, you need to carve dedicated time for blogging. This may mean no longer vegging on the couch at 9pm every night.

Or, it might mean waking up an hour early before you head off to work to write a blog post or schedule your pins in Tailwind.

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, the time to blog is there, but it’s not alway so cut and dry.

Your child may be fussy that morning, or may not nap that afternoon – I get it, I’ve been there!

What I liked to do when my twins were home while I blogged, was set up activities for them to keep them busy.

This gave me pockets of 20 minutes here, 45 minutes there etc…

I also blogged when they napped and when they went to bed for the night. This gave me about 4 hours a day to start a business and to blog. It is possible mamas!

If you need more tips, here is my ultimate guide for time management for mom bloggers.
