Are you new to blogging? Not sure what you need to help you grow and monetize your blog?
These programs, tools, and sites I recommend keep me focused on the right things to do for growing my blog. All of these resources I’ve personally used and will benefit you as well!
You started a blog, found a great WordPress theme, figured out how to use WordPress and wrote your first post.
That’s a huge accomplishment mamas!
But, now that you did all that, what do you do next?
What’s the next step after you start a blog?
For some bloggers, they focus on building their email list.
Other bloggers want to grow their social media followers. While others stick to the traditional elements of SEO and keywords.
Twins Mommy is over a year old! Wow! During the first year of my blog, I concentrated on two things:
I tried some strategy tips, failed in other ways, but at the end, I succeeded in growing my blog. Now that I’m in my second year of blogging on Twins Mommy, I know this year will be even better because of the work I did during the first year to build that trusted and strong blog.
To help you on your new blogging journey, here are 16 of the best Twins Mommy posts that will help you grow your blog traffic and blog income!
(P.S. they were also the most fun to write and share!)
I love Pinterest! It’s the one social media platform that has totally helped me grow my traffic and invariably my income too!
Before I started Twins Mommy, I didn’t use Pinterest as a marketing tool. I had a business account and I was pinning my pins for my freelance writing business, but it was all manual and very infrequent.
For new bloggers, trying to get traffic to your new blog is maddening!
I’m a year in and still working hard on getting traffic because it takes time to grow your blog. You have to make blog posts, find images for your post, email your subscribers, network online and of course promote your post.
Need some blogging tips to ramp up your blog?
I started Twins Mommy over a year ago, and sometimes I feel like I’m still in the new blog phase. I’m still learning, growing and figuring out this whole blogging thing.
Is that you?
Have you been hearing about what landing pages are lately?
As a new blogger, there are so many new terms and tools that it can be overwhelming for sure! That’s why I created this Blogging Basics series!
It sort of breaks down how to get going as a new blogger. And for many newbies, you’ll be hearing a lot about landing pages and how you should have one if you want to grow your email list or income.
OMG! Are you a new blogger interested in free beautiful stock photos?
When I first started Twins Mommy, I was on the search for feminine stock photos. I didn’t have the budget to pay for them, so I was looking for free stock images. But, a lot of them just didn’t fit my brand as a mom blogger.
Are you thinking about starting a blog?
If you’re on Pinterest you might have seen some pins about how great blogging is for mamas! From monetizing your blog to networking with other mamas to getting to know your audience, blogging is an amazing and creative outlet for moms.
I know for me, one of the reasons I wanted to start Twins Mommy was to have that outlet to talk about the challenges of being a work-at-home mom and to meet others doing the same.
Hmm…don’t you love it when you have a sweet and sticky treat? The warm weather is a-coming and that means ice cream galore. Well, it does for my twins!
People are naturally drawn to sweet foods. It’s comforting, tastes good and it’s universally accepted as a good thing.
(now, I’m hungry for some mint chocolate-chip ice cream!)
