Age of the Mommy Blog: How Stay-at-Home Moms Make Money Today

You Need A Custom Domain Name on a Solid Platform


If you are seriously planning to monetize your blog and run it in a professional capacity, you need to have a custom domain name. Sites with custom domain names are treated better by the search engines, making it easier for people to find your blog and keeping you in the public eye. There are a number of quality hosts you can use, with WordPress perhaps being the most popular. Choose a host that has a good reputation for stability and support. A host that goes down frequently or fails to answer your startup questions will negatively impact your earnings and irritate your readers.

The Platform

This site is a WordPress.org blog and while there are other blogging platforms to choose from, SquareSpace for example.

We recommend starting a blog with WordPress because:

Most sites are WordPress sites (like The New Yorker and even Beyoncé!)
You have more options to customize your site with WordPress plugins and thousands of themes to choose from (both free and paid) to make your blog look the way you want it to.
There is a lot of support to help you with your WordPress blog. There are YouTube videos, blog posts and WordPress forums – not to mention me! – that can help you with your blog’s theme and site.

    So can people rely on information from blogs?! The people writing may have no expertise besides personal experience that may not work for anyone else. Also if they’re doing it for money – isn’t it more like infotainment / advertising?!

    Working for yourself can be quite a challenge. You have to be very motivated and keep yourself in check. Sometimes having a home office or at least an area that can be your own space to work in is very helpful.

  • suger puppy star

  • Arfnublet Karntschaffe

    What if I’m just not interesting enough for a blog? My life is pretty simple and humble. Blehs

    • Scott Alexander

      Lol not interesting enough for a blog? Is that even a thing? Show me a blog that isn’t just all the minutiae and banality that doesn’t quite make the grade for the social media highlight reels of Snapchat or Twitter, but are still considered by the author to be too important to remain unpublished. Who wouldn’t find fascinating the insights and unique perspective of someone with children? Or a job? Or even a dog? It’s almost as good as reading original fanfiction- only without the fiction! There is no detail, thought or event too inconsequential to be included. With no barrier to entry, there can be no lower limit.

    • Bobby lee

      Yes

    Starting or running your own business is bery time consuming. There are more effective ways to draw customers than blogging … Unless you enjoy writing and interacting with people .

    • Melissa

      HI Sharon, I started my own business, then fell pregnant and had a baby but didn’t get enough time to advertise my business or draw in enough customers, I’m struggling now to build it back up…what do you suggest as effective ways of drawing in customers? I’m an architectural building designer.

    Very good and I commend you to be able to pay as much attention to your children as your camera phone computer etc as much as this sounds very much a easy way to make time to spend with children and also with a payment at home … I as a mother of 11 children ranging from 22 to 2&1/2 have very much no time for any of this I really cannot understand how’d you find yourself when toilet time is in issue and children are ill as all children get sick and when your children get sick of being infringed on when their lives are are sociallyl awkward enough you place it in a blog? And have the chance that they feel the internet nows more about their lives than they do.
