Why Moms Should Start Blogging

Whether you are a new mum, the mother of a toddler, school or going kids or even teenagers, you should consider writing a blog. “Mommy Blogs” as they are known, are some of the most popular blogs on the web. They cover a variety of topics and make for a very interesting read. Are you a Mom? If so, there are many reasons why you should start blogging.

Wealth of Knowledge

As a mom, you have a wealth of material to blog about. Your children alone provide a great starting point for topics – “How to Deal With a Tantrum”, “Keeping Children Occupied When Travelling”, “How To Prepare Your Child For The First Day At School” and “Great Children’s Party Games” are four of many topics that you could easily explore. As a Mom, you may also double up as the chef, baker, cleaner and overall manager of your household. These multiple roles also provide scope for multiple blogs topics – “Goodies To Bake With Your Kids”, “How To Save Money on Children’s Clothes” and “Healthy Meals for Your Family” are topic examples.


Mums can have a very busy schedule, and so getting out of the house to socialise can prove difficult. Blogging online opens you up to a whole new social network of women with similar interests and backgrounds as yourself. “Mommy Blogs” attract the attention of Moms, who actively comment, share and debate on the posts. As well as blogging yourself, read and comment on other blogs to develop an online network of friends. And

Easy To Write

“Mommy Blogs” don’t have to be very formal. You don’t have to be the best writer in the world, once your content offers value to its readers. Once you have internet access, you don’t even need to leave the house to write your blogs. You can write your blogs completely at your own leisure. While the kids are tucked up in bed, you can be blogging and chatting to mums on other blogs. All you need to do is find a domain name that suits you, compare web hosting companies to find the best one for you and then install a blogging platform like WordPress and you can be up and running within an hour.

Companies Listen To and Read These Blogs

“Mommy Blogs” are very influential. Companies who deem “Mums” as their target market actively listen to and read these blogs. They can offer a great insight into what their target market likes or dislikes about a product or service. Opinions offered on these blogs can also provide scope for new product decisions.

Passes The Time

While the schedule of a Mum is often very hectic, there are some periods when the kids are off at school or at a sports game, and Mum is sitting at home with little to do. Blogging or Facebook can help you to quickly pass any such periods of time. As you will be writing about topics which you are passionate about, blogging will prove an enjoyable way to pass the time.

So you’ve never written a blog before? That doesn’t matter, there is a first time for everything! Share your knowledge with the rest of the Mums in the world. It is far more valuable and appreciated than you think!
