Blogging is hard! Maybe you’ve thought of the following when starting your blog:
I just don’t like how my blog looks and I have no idea how to change it without messing up my blog!
What your blog looks like is important, but figuring out how to change fonts or create fun round images on your site looks hard!
December in the blogging world can either mean chaos or distraction.
For me, it’s chaos this year! But, I do know for some bloggers they turn away from their blog and emailing their list for most of December to focus on family and the holiday.
And let me be the first blogger to say YASS! Do YOU! Be present this holiday and enjoy the time you have your family.
December is finally here, and I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to the New Year and growing my blog’s traffic and income!
Are you excited by next year?
Do you want to know what I love most about blogging?
First, it’s the opportunity I have to reach out to my audience and help them in their struggles. I wouldn’t be writing these articles if I didn’t want to help you out!
I love love love supporting new mom bloggers along this journey. You really need a tribe to help you succeed mama!
Secondly, though, is the opportunity blogging has to generate income. Between blogging and writing, I can work from home and enjoy more time with my family.
Did you know that in 1999 there were only 23 blogs on the internet?
By the middle of 2006, there were over 50 million blogs!
That’s a huge jump in numbers when it comes to people sharing their thoughts, knowledge and insights across the web.
It’s no wonder there are now hundreds of options when it comes to choosing a blogging site!
Interested in starting a blog? This is the year to do it!
More and more people are starting a blog and turning their personal blog into a sustainable income. I know!
How can you do that?
I started my personal blog – Elna Cain – in 2015 and I wrote about writing of all things and what I was learning at the time.
If you have been reading blogs or thinking about starting your own blog for any period of time, I’m sure that you have heard the term “lifestyle blog,” or “lifestyle blogger.”
I know I did when I first started a mom blog!
A lifestyle blog is a type of blog that has many different blog niches, from fashion to food, babies to blogging.
So that means a lifestyle blog or blogger can cover many different topics.
With summer in full swing, and the possibility of homeschool in the fall, trying to find ways to make money online can seem like a pipe dream.
But, it doesn’t have to be mama! Just think about it!
With some extra income you have online you can cover your kids dance classes, build up your savings, or as a way to eventually make it your full time income and quick your day job.
Mama, are you thinking about starting a blog, but just can’t do it because of the cost?
The other day on Instagram, a follower asked me how much does it cost to blog?
I thought that was an interesting question because it made it sound like this follower is feeling that blogging is expensive.
You started a blog!
But, aside from choosing your blog niche, you need to solidify your brand with a free WordPress theme.
There are hundreds (probably thousands) of very beautiful, free WordPress themes available – and I’ve tried and used many of them over the years of having a mom blog!
