42 Best Mommy Blogs that Are Successful (in 2021)

Mommy blogs.

I love them! This is one of the reasons why I started Twins Mommy.

I wanted to connect with other moms out there – especially ones with little ones and that worked from home.

Mommy bloggers are a unique set of bloggers.

We have to multi-task efficiently, have strong time management skills and above all, balance motherhood with business.

Phew!

That is a tall order, but you know what?

Mommy bloggers rise to the occasion and make this whole mom blog thing work for them!

AMIRIGHT?

The mom blogs in this list inspire me in so many different ways.

Twins Mommy is still a new blog and every day I learn from these mommy bloggers with the way they make money to how they share their life stories and more.

Many of these mommy blogs are big blogs, but I also included the smaller ones. I like reading small mom blogs because they can sometimes offer the greatest insight into balancing it all.

Before we get into this list, if you want to start a mom blog and join the rest of us, make sure to check out my easy tutorial + video on how to start a blog.

42 Mommy Blogs in 2021

To have a successful mommy blog, the main thing to focus is serving your audience.

It’s that simple.

If you can help your audience with a challenge or problem they are having, then your blog will be the beacon that they need.

But, how do you know your audience’s problems?

An easy way to figure this out is to blog to an earlier version of YOU.

If you’re a mom to a toddler, you can start a pregnancy and postpartum blog.

If you’ve been thinking about starting a family, you can start a marriage and relationship blog!

Blogging to an earlier version of you ensures that you understand your audience’s problems and challenges (because you’ve been through them!).

Once you know your audience and their problems you can write blog posts topics to help them.

Some good places to find blog topics is Answer the Public.

Just type in your topic and see what questions are asked from real people.

Many of these blogs are informational, but they are also inspirational too. So, if you can infuse your stories but also offer tips and suggestions to your audience, then you have a winning blogging idea!

1. Mama Natural

Genevieve is a crunchy mama that has a huge YouTube audience and educational blog posts about pregnancy and postpartum.

When I was pregnant with Twins, I always visited Mama Natural to learn about my pregnancy.

I really like her trendy baby name guides and her books and courses too!

2. Alpha Mom

Alpha Mom is a content powerhouse! Their lifestyle mom blog caters to pregnant moms and parents.

I enjoy their DIY craft posts and educational content about patenting practices.

3. Working Mother

Working Mother is a magazine and website. What I enjoy best about this mom blog is that it’s for working moms like myself.

I used to use their job board frequently when I first started out as a freelance writer and I used their blog to help me balance my work with my home life.

4. The Military Wife and Mom

Lauren’s mommy blog, The Military Wife and Mom helps teachers, parents, military spouses and caregivers parenting advice to minimize stress.

While I’m not a military spouse, I can still read her blog posts and find them valuable. The one thing that resonated with me on was her storytelling ability.

I instantly created an emotional bond to her writing and love the way she infuses storytelling in her content.

5. Scary Mommy

Scary Mommy first started out as purely a pregnancy and parenting blog that spoke about things unspeakable. From postpartum depression to punishment to not-so-popular opinions.

As it grew, their content grew and is now a site with still great pregnant and parenting advice, but also entertainment content too.

6. A Cup of Jo

While A Cup of Jo isn’t purely a mommy blog with mom blog content, it is a lifestyle blog from a mom. I love the design and look of this site and it feels like reading a magazine.

It’s no wonder since Joanna worked at Cosmopolitan, Glamor and Bene.

7. What Moms Love

Aly of What Moms Love is one of the first mommy bloggers I learned about.

Her blog posts where aspiring as a writer. I loved how she rounded up the best of the best ideas and products and grew her social media presence.

Plus her gift guides are some of the best around!

This website for moms also talks about latest news and studies that could have an impact on families.

Do You Want to Start a Mommy Blog?

I’m able to work from home and take care of my twins because of blogging.

I know that if I never started blogging in the first place, I wouldn’t be able to do the things we do as a family.

Starting a mom blog also is such a wonderful experience.

I absolutely love helping others start their own mom blogs and make it successful.
