When the idea first hit me to start a Mom Blog, I was on Maternity Leave with my first child (way back in 2012!). I had absolutely zero idea how to go about it. Pinterest had just started gaining in popularity and I was still trying to figure that out. I still had a Blackberry for Heaven’s sake! I had read other Mom blogs that I had found through Pinterest but it was an intimidating idea to start one of my own. I like to consider myself tech saavy with some self-taught Photoshop skills but I wasn’t confident enough to figure out web hosting and things like that. Way too scary and complicated for me…or so I thought…
Now 5 years later, I am on Maternity Leave with my second child. The Mom Blog idea came to me again, this time a couple of weeks before my due date. I decided to seriously look into it again via Pinterest but this time I was so overwhelmed with the thousands of pins titled ‘How to Start a Blog’. There are so many options it’s hard to know who’s advice to take. I found myself falling down the Pinterest vortex, reading ‘Blogging Do’s & Don’ts’ and ‘What Not to Do When Starting a Blog’ type Blog posts. Before I knew it, I’d lost 2 hours and I still was no further ahead in starting my own Blog.
The Pin that Changed it All
I was about ready to ditch my Mom Blog idea until one shining pink little pin caught my eye…
It featured an eBook & Course titled ‘Blog By Number’ by Suzi Whitford. I clicked through the link and was so impressed that I ended up purchasing the course. (Talk about an impulse-buy but well worth it!) It literally had everything I was looking for in one place! (Cue angels singing and lights shining down from the Heavens). Suzi gives step by step instructions (I’m talkin’ baby steps) on how to set up your blog using SiteGround web hosting service and WordPress. The customer service at SiteGround was so amazing. I took Suzi`s recommendation and used their web chat to ask for help during the set up process. They did everything for me on their end in under 10 minutes! Not to mention, they are super cheap. Like $3.95 per month cheap.
In the Blog By Number Course, Suzi holds your hand every step of the way and helps you to find your niche, create your blog, drive traffic to your blog, and best of all, make money from your blog. How cool is that?! The course was clear and easy to follow with encouraging video messages from Suzi (and her adorable girls!) throughout. Just follow along with the course and by the end you will have launched a very pretty blog! It was really that easy!
The Blog Whisperer
Really, she is. Not only has Suzi created the Blog By Number Course (affiliate link)but several other courses (affiliate link)to help you be the best Mommy Blogger you can be. She even has them available for purchase in a 5 Course Bundle offer that you can find here. (affiliate link)
She is extremely knowledgeable and has had great success with her own blog. She is truly an inspiration! Not only that but she is SO nice. How nice is she? She`s offering a course absolutely F-R-E-E to help you get started! It`s called First Month Blog Plan (affiliate link) and you can get it by clicking on this link! (affiliate link)
So if you`re thinking you might want to start a Mom Blog (or any blog for that matter), the Blog By Number Course (affiliate link)is a great place to start. I promise it is worth every penny of the investment. You’ll be blogging in no time!
Best of Luck!
With Love & Light,
