Best Blogging Advice from Mom Bloggers
Looking for the best blogging advice from experienced mom bloggers?
Running a blog (whether it's part-time or full-time), while also being a full-time mom is an effort that can feel impossible at times.
There were many instances that I considered quitting my creative pursuits and simply focusing all my attention on “mommying”. But I knew in my heart that I needed a creative outlet. That's what running a blog is for me–a creative way for me to share my talents, passions, and interests with the world…and get paid to do it!
One of the things that inspired me to keep going was reading about other mompreneurs. Listening to their stories to hear why they started, where they struggled, and how they found success was just the dose of encouragement I needed to keep going.
In the spirit of inspiring more moms, I'm highlighting different mom bloggers and their best blogging advice for beginner bloggers.
These women are hardworking, amazing mom entrepreneurs who are balancing family life and their creative businesses.

Lisa and Heather's Blogging Advice:
“Hang in there! It can feel so frustrating to put so much effort and time into something and not feel like it's going anywhere or growing. We are growing slowly, and some days I feel like we are peddling backward. However, when I stop and look back at our numbers, our growth in how we blog and our knowledge, I can see just how far we really have come. It's encouraging, even on those hard days.”

Sam's Blogging Advice:
“First, find your passion, something that you love and that you would not get tired or bored of
coming up with content within the first year. Next, invest in quality courses. This past year I have taken several courses on all aspects of
blogging and they have all helped me infinitely. Never stop learning!”

Krystal's Blogging Advice:
“Recognize from day one that you will never be done. Ever. You will always have a running to-do list and as soon as you clear it, others items will take their place. So once I realized there will always be a long list of things to accomplish, I started adopting what I call “The Big Three.”
Basically, I pick the three things that will most help me reach my goals. As long as those three things get done, I can walk away from work that day and feel accomplished. It has also helped my productivity because I spend time on the important things first, before going to the routine everyday tasks that come along with blogging.”

Ashley's Blogging Advice:
“When you're starting out, work a little bit at your business every single day. Get a planner or use an app to help with everything on your to-do list. That to-do list will seem never ending but it's best to get in the habit early of writing things down! Connect with other bloggers in your niche and never stop learning.”

Jennifer's Blogging Advice:
“My best advice would be to take your time. Research. Plan. Write out a vision. Map out a strategy for how your business is going to operate and how you plan to grow it. Doing this before you dive in will help guide you as you forge ahead. Tough decisions will be easier to make because you'll have a clear picture of where you want your business to go.”
This is a blog about inspiring focus and providing tools for deep-rooted Bible study.
Sarah's Blogging Advice:

This is a blog about how to get out of debt and love managing your money. The blog owner paid off $147,000 in debt.
Jackie's Blogging Advice:
“Do not waste time trying to come up with the “right” business name, business plan, business card, etc. Instead, focus on finding out what works regarding your target goal as fast as you can.
For example, if you’re going to sell a product on your site, test out selling it to ground-floor people who know it’s not yet completed but who want to be the first to get it when it’s done. There’s nothing that gauges interest more accurately than people actually making a purchase.
If your goal is to write, start writing NOW and then promote what you’ve done. People have to know about what you're doing for it to make a difference. In short: Don’t agonize. You can always change things up later. And promote way more than feels natural.”
Curiosity Encouraged is a resource for parents and teachers who are interested in nurturing the love of learning.

Heather's Blogging Advice:
“Don’t wait. You’ll never have enough time, enough money, enough ideas, etc. Start with what you have, keep it simple. You don’t need to invest in lots of courses, souped-up hosting, etc. If there’s a will, there’s a way— one of the biggest determining factors in if you will be successful is dependent on how strong your drive to succeed is.”
Girl’s Guide To PM is a blog about project management. It's a resource for early and mid-career professionals who are managing projects at work and leading teams.
Heather's Blogging Advice:
“Think long term. When I started blogging I thought my blog name was cute. Eleven years on and it’s stuck, although I’m not sure I’d refer to myself as a girl any longer!
And only do it if you love it. I’d be writing longhand in journals if I didn’t have a blog, I love my subject, and there’s a lot to say about it. That makes it a joy, not a chore, although some of the elements of blogging feel repetitive, as they do in any job.
Set your expectations realistically and remember you don’t have to do it all at once!”

Chrysti's Blogging Advice:
“Don’t be afraid to start, and then don’t be afraid to make your business fit into your life, instead of making your life fit into your business. So often, I feel like it’s easy to look at other successful mompreneurs and think we need to adopt their exact strategy if we want to be successful. But what they did to rise to success may not be feasible in your current life season, and that’s ok. Make your journey your own.”
Sammy Approves is a blog about simple ways to find happiness in family, food, travel, and parenting.
Sammy's Blogging Advice:
“My best advice is to set goals and not give up. I’m miles from where I was when I started blogging. There were so many times I wanted to give up, but I kept going and am making a decent part time income now. Also, don’t be afraid to learn new things. There is always room for improvement even in areas you are good at.”
