Blog Topics for Your Mommy Blog
Need some new blog post ideas for your mom blog? While I’m not a mom blogger, I am a mom who has a blog. I often think about all the blog posts I could write if I was in the parenting niche. I’ve created a list of those mom blog post ideas just for you.
I’ll also provide tips on how to create multiple posts from one idea. As well as a couple ways to monetize those blog posts.
This post contains affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase through one of these links, I may receive a small commission, at no extra cost to you. All opinions are my own. Read my full disclosure here.
Let’s get started! I’ve made multiple lists for the various stages of life as a mom.
Idea categories include:
• Pregnancy/Preparing For New Baby
• Baby Related
• Toddler Related
• Parenting Kids
• Parenting Teens
• Mom Life in General
Take these basic blog post ideas and make them your own! Tell a story and offer first-hand experiences and advice.

Creating Additional Blog Posts From One Idea
Often just one of these simple ideas can be broken further down into additional posts.
Here’s an example…
Post Idea: Your Personal Birth Story
If I were to write about my personal birth story I’d talk about how I had a midwife and natural birth at home. From there I could further break that down into SO many more blog posts!
Why I Chose a Midwife
Thank You Gifts for Your Midwife
Surviving a Natural Childbirth
My Home Birth Story
Why I Chose Home Birth
My Favorite Thing About Home Birth
Pros and Cons of Home Birthing
Hospital VS. Home Birth
And so on…
Another example could be:
Post Idea: Losing Weight After Baby
Let’s say you lost your baby weight by jogging. You could talk about that and further break that experience down into other posts.
Best Jogging Stroller Reviews
When is it Safe to Start Exercising After Birth
Easing into Exercise after a C-Section
Exercising With Baby
And so on…
If you are still stumped for ideas, start keeping a daily journal.
Simply document your day-to-day life. Us moms are constantly being thrown curveballs as our children grow.
By keeping a journal of your daily challenges, you’ll be able to look back on these experiences and reflect on what happened, how you dealt with the situation, and then offer advice based on your experience.
The blog posts will basically write themselves!
Check out this awesome Planner/Organizer for Moms to help you remember those parenting challenges (aka, future blog posts)!
Monetizing Your Mom Blog
Now that you have some fresh content ideas. Let’s talk monetization!
Some great ways (please note, these are not the only ways) to make money from your mom blog are:
Let’s look at each of these money-earning methods and how/where to get started.
New to the idea of affiliate marketing? I recommend this free course to get your feet wet.
If you aren’t already, you will want to become a member of the Amazon Affiliate program.
The parenting niche is the perfect fit for Amazon. So perfect in fact, I consider starting a mom blog constantly just because I can see so much potential for earning with Amazon.
There are endless opportunities to monetize your blog while helping other parents. It’s as simple as recommending products that helped you as a mom.
AND in case you didn’t already know, when someone purchases something through one of your Amazon affiliate links, you get a commission even if what they buy isn’t something you linked to!
So if you recommend a toy and they look at it, decide it’s not what they were looking for, and go on to buy something else, you still make money!
How to Promote Amazon Links
Here’s an example of how to add Amazon links to your post. If I was making a post called Favourite Toddler Products, I’d probably recommend this Weighted Straw Munchkin Cup. I could simply link to the cup and explain why I loved it.
Or if I was making a list post about toys that my child played with the longest (and were, therefore, a good investment) I’d be sure to mention this LeapFrog Touch and include what age my daughter started playing with it and why she loved it / still loves it.
Sounds pretty great, right?

There are also some great products/companies you can promote through affiliate marketing networks like ShareASale.
Promote products like Gymboree, Janie & Jack, Hooked on Phonics, Kid Wonder, Ergo Baby, and MANY more!
You can join ShareASale for free HERE.

Affiliate marketing is great. But there really is no better feeling than creating and selling your own products.
And they don’t have to be fancy. A sellable digital product could be as simple as a printable or a basic eBook.
(For example: a printable parenting planner, homemade baby food recipes, sleep training guides).
Eventually, maybe you could create a course. This will all depend on your area of expertise and what you can offer your audience that they’ll find value in. When you’re ready to get started, check out my post below:
There really is huge potential for making money from an email list. You just have to start building that list ASAP.
The fabulous thing about having loyal email subscribers is the ability to connect with other moms and offer them value through more than just social media.
Your list is yours and yours alone. You don’t have to worry about a social media platform’s algorithm changing in order to reach your audience. But how do you get subscribers? By offering them something in return. This usually comes in the form of a freebie of some sort.

Don’t forget to promote your mom blog on Pinterest! Pinterest marketing and parenting blogs are a match made in heaven.
If you haven’t already, it’s time to create a Pinterest business account for your blog. Create some eye catching pins for your posts and get to work!

Final Thoughts on Blog Post Ideas for Mom Bloggers
I hope your brain is overflowing with new blog post ideas! Any time you need some motherhood writing prompts, review this list.
See what applies to you and tweak or expand on the ideas. Then explore if there are ways to expand that post into multiple new posts.
Place your affiliate links in where appropriate (without overdoing it) and you’re on your way!
Know that you’ve chosen a great niche for blogging success. Moms will always be looking for advice and you can feel great knowing you’re providing first-hand experience to their issues/questions.
If you can offer a solution to their problem, they’ll keep coming back for more.
And if you haven’t actually started your mom blog yet but are seriously considering it, check out the Blog By Number eBook by Suzi at StartaMomBlog.com HERE.
She’s helped countless moms start and monetize their blogs. It’s a fantastic resource to help get you started.
Happy blogging (and momming)!
