Mom Blogger Needs Traffic and Advice

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 9:35 AM


I'm a mommy blogger and a stay at home mom with three beautiful children 3, 5, and 9 years old. I have a mom blog I started a year ago about motherhood, parenting issues and kids product reviews. I love being a mommy blogger and all of the comments I get from my readers show that they really value the content in my blog.  The problem is I am still not getting consistent traffic to my mom blog and I'm lucky if I earn $50 a month on my website!  Other mom bloggers know that it takes alot of time to run a blog especially with three kids. 


I'm worried that if I don't start earning more money from this mommy blog soon my husband will ask me to stop blogging.  I've read everything out there and I'm at my wits end with this web stuff, but I do still enjoy having a "web business" so I'm not ready to completely give up.  I have to admit I didn't even know what a blog was a year ago, so my learning curve has been steep.  My question is to other mom bloggers out there.  What are you doing to make money and bring traffic to your mom blogs?

Have you tried blog carnivals for your posts or guest posting on other blogs. Those are two great ways to bring traffic to your blog. It just takes time for blogs to grow. Tell your husband to be patient and when the kids are asleep let him know you appreciate his support by giving him a little tlc!

You can try advertising it on forums and also look for blogs that except guest bloggers. I have been blogging for about a month and have just reached 1,000 page views. It is a lot of hard work you have to attract readers and keep the blog fresh to keep their attention. My blog is free i dont make any money off of it but those are some of the things that I do to gain traffic.
