Are you a stay at home mom looking for ideas to start a blog? You’ve stopped at the right place because I’m also a stay at home mom and I’m going to give you my Top 10 Ideas for your new blog that you’ll love to work on.
A blog is more successful if your idea for your blog is specific to a target audience, this is called a niche! You noticed I said “idea”, singular form, because you don’t want to have so many different topics on your blog.
If you can narrow your blog down to a target audience, you will be able convert your readers to sales better and make more money from your blog.
The idea for your blog should also be something you really like to talk about. Because blogging is about writing content, you want to be able to enjoy doing it for, hopefully, many years to come.
Therefore, picking the ideal topic for your blog should include your passions, things you love, or topic of high interests even though you may not know much about them but willing to do the research.
The ideas I’m about to show you are mom-related because how can one mom not trust another mom right? Even more targeted this way!
Without further discussion, let’s get right to the Top 10 Ideas:
IDEA NO. 1 – BABY STROLLERS
The many types of strollers you can organize your site into are as follows:
- Infant strollers with car seat
- Jogger strollers
- Double strollers
- Lightweight strollers
- All terrain strollers
- Pram strollers
Each of these can be a “Category” on your blog and you can easily add all sorts of different articles to them. Review the ones you’ve used, the likes and dislikes about them, and if you recommend it or not. A review doesn’t necessary always mean you love it, remember that, and you can still make money from it!
You can also review strollers or products you don’t own, you just have to do your research on them, and then write about them in your own perspective after gathering all the info.
Never copy and paste any blog posts from anywhere, Google knows and will penalize your site if you do.
Then look for what moms’ aches and pains are when using a stroller, like can’t push their stroller through shopping aisles, too wide, too narrow, too heavy, etc. Then you can recommend the strollers that will help solve those aches and pains.
IDEA NO. 2 – BREASTFEEDING
If you’re like me who breastfed, this is a great topic for you because there are so many challenges in this niche that you can help solve for other moms. My first experience was absolute hell, especially the first two weeks but, by my second baby, I was a pro and so was my second baby, she ate like a champ!
Some of the sub-topics you can use for your blog are:
- How to schedule breastfeeding and which breast to feed from
- Breastfeeding monitors
- Types of breast pumps
- How to store breast milk
- What breast pads to use
- How to deal with breastfeeding when returning to work
Your own experience here will be very convincing for the next mom who needs your advice! This is a great blog to have and if done right, you can make a very good steady income here.
IDEA NO. 3 – BABY FOOD
You can even have sections on your blog like this:
- Organic baby recipes
- Vegan baby recipes
- Gluten free baby recipes
- Easy toddler recipes
- Healthy snacks
Another interest here is the type of equipment moms will need to make the baby food. Lots of potential here to earn money by recommending all sorts of kitchen equipment and baby utensils/types of bottles or bowls.
You can also go into how to schedule when to feed the baby solid foods and when to feed the baby milk. As well, you can offer advice on what to do when baby refuses solid foods.
IDEA NO.4 – BABY NURSERIES
Not only recommend products, you can also offer ideas about trendy color themes, how to set up the pieces of furniture that would ease baby changing, and ideas on how to make the baby sleep comfortably.
The types of items you can recommend are:
- Dresser with changing table
- Baby monitors
- Feeding chair
- Feeding pillow
- Nursery decor
There’s a lot of potential here, and in fact, you can probably have a sub-niche blog on just one of those room items like the baby cribs and only talk about cribs on that one blog.
IDEA NO. 5 – YOUR NINE MONTHS – PREGNANCY
From conception to your 40th week, you can blog about these types of things:
- What to use to see if you’re pregnant
- Maternity clothes
- Body pillows
- Exercising while pregnant
- Do’s and Don’ts while pregnant
- How to get ready for the baby – mentally, emotionally, physically
There is so much you can blog about here and potential for success is high!
IDEA NO. 6 – BABY PROOFING YOUR HOUSE
This will be a great how-to blog about baby proofing your house to keep your baby safe. When the baby starts crawling and walking, you’re pretty much in a high speed chase if your house is not baby proofed! Lol
Things you can talk about are:
- Baby gates to use at stairs
- Electrical outlets
- Kitchen cabinets
- TV and stereo systems
- Table corners and other sharp objects
Safety for the baby is number one priority for any mom so you can offer great advice on how to prevent any dangers from the baby.
IDEA NO. 7 – BABY TOYS
This idea can actually be broken down much further as baby toys is quite general. Your blog can be narrowed down to only baby toys for the first 5 years before kindergarten starts. Or, you can have a niche for toys that stimulate brain development.
There are many ways you can break this topic down by and each of this could be its own blog:
- Type of toys – i.e. Toys with wheels
- Toys by age – i.e. Toys for Infants
- Toys by gender – i.e. Toys for girls
If you can narrow it down like the above, you can have a better blog than just Baby Toys which is still quite general.
IDEA NO. 8 – POSTPARTUM WORKOUTS
Every mom, or almost every mom I guess, would want their pre-pregnancy body back and lose their pregnancy weight. You can offer various types of exercises that would be the most effective for people who just had a baby.
All around plan for moms in postpartum:
- Types of exercises
- How to schedule around your baby
- How to include your baby in the exercises
- How to eat healthier since we might have slacked during pregnancy
This can be a fun blog for those who’s into fitness and exercising. Especially those who’s had success in losing their pregnancy weight within a year, you can share all you did and your story. Sharing your story is very powerful and the reader can really feel your authenticity.
IDEA NO. 9 – DO-IT-YOURSELF CRAFTS
I know I had to go searching for crafts to do with the kids when they weren’t in school yet. If you’re very crafty and have great ideas with things you’ve done with your kids, this would be the blog for you!
- Making things with paper
- Simple projects with dry foods like pasta
- Using different materials like cork, fabric, etc
- Sidewalk chalk fun projects
Here you can recommend many supplies needed for the craft ideas and this will help moms keep their babies busy while at home. 🙂
IDEA NO. 10 – POTTY TRAINING
Getting your child to sit there and wait for pee to come out is one of the hardest part of raising a child at that age. If you’ve gone through it, you can advise to future moms how to do it!
Here are some tips you can offer:
- Potty seats
- Toilet seats
- Things to keep toddler busy: electronics, toys, books
- How to make it fun
There are many solutions you can offer future moms on how to get this potty training done right and quickly.
