Hello, friends of the internet! Welcome back to another blog post – and as always, it's good to see you 🙂
Today we will be talking about something a little bit different from what we usually talk about here. However, we have to switch it up once in a while, and what better to do so than talk about mom blogs!!
We are going to be talking everything about what mom blogs are about, some creative mom blog name ideas you can use, and if you are looking to start your own mom blog or blog in general, I'm going to also explain how to do that as well!
Let's get right into it. We have a lot to cover!
What Is a Mom Blog?
Simply put, a mom blog or mommy blog is a type of blog run by women who are essentially writing about being a mom and about their families!
Mom blogs are meant to teach other moms tips and tricks about being a mom, having kids, and taking care of a household!
Anything from diapers to life updates and so much more. I love mom blogs because of the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.”
I think this saying is so true, and mom blogs are an excellent way for women and men to have a community and speak about their kids.
It's a very welcoming community that provides a lot of support and knowledge to parents from all over the world! It's a feel-good moment kind of community if you know what I mean!
How to Choose Your Mom Blog Name
Now that we know what a mom blog is let's take a look at how you should go about choosing your name! It's all in the details, my friends! It's time to get creative! Grab a notebook and a pen, or open up that app on your phone to take down these pointers.
1. The Spelling of Your Name / The Length
What you are going to want to do is to brainstorm a couple of ideas that you wish to the name of your blog to be called. The next thing you will want to do is see what it would be like as a domain name.
We don’t want to make it too long. Short a sweet is your best bet here. So, write out the names you are thinking about and add on a .com onto the end of the names to see what they would like in a web browser.
2. Your Name Needs to Be Memorable
Now that you decided your mom blog's potential name, how memorable do you think it would be to other people?
The best way to make sure people remember the name of your blog is to, again, keep it short, sweet, and to the point. I would say a max of 5 words at the absolute most. If you can make it 2 to 3, that is even better.
3. Use an Automatic Blog Name Generator
If you are totally in love with the blog names you have been coming up with, that is totally okay because there is a solution to this. Just use a blog name generator! There are a ton of name generators online.
However, I prefer to use NameBoy. I always find that the options they provide are super unique and fun.
All you need to do is put two words in there that you are thinking of using and see what the generator provides you! You can switch the words up here and there until you find something you really like!
4. Blog Under Your Name
If you still aren't in love with any of the choices you have generated or brainstormed, there is nothing wrong with blogging under your name! Choosing your name is also way more versatile.
So, if you want to change your content and blog about a different niche, you can totally do that under your name without having to pay for a domain! Easy peasy, my friends!
5. Use Expired Domain Names
Sometimes bloggers will buy domain names and then decide they don't want them anymore.
They then go expired, and you can search keywords up on sites such as Domain Hole and search through previously generated mom blog name ideas that are no longer in use and up for grabs!

How to Start A Mom Blog
Okay, ladies, you've made it this far, which means that you're probably more excited to start your mom blog now. Am I right?
Well, if you have decided to start a mom blog. Here is how you do it! Soon enough, you will have launched your website and posted your first kinds of topics by following these steps! Let's get started, shall we!
1. Choose Your Sub-Niche
Even though you have done this already, it is still important to talk about it. Choosing your niche is essential for anyone who is starting a blog. Now while your niche is going to be a parenting blog, there are sub-niches that you can write under as well, such as:
- Parenting tips
- DIY and kids crafting
- Budgeting and financial
- Cooking and baking
Once you have chosen what your niche and perhaps sub niche will be, it's time to head over to step 2!
2. Choose Your Name
Once your niche is set, it’s time to choose your name. Remember to keep it short and simple and use the blog generators that I linked if you are still looking for some inspiration!
3. Choose Your Blogging Platform
One of the best blogging platforms that you can use is WordPress. It is so easy to navigate. You have complete control over your blog, which means if you decide to begin monetizing your blog, you can do so without needing to pay anyone!
WordPress is also one of the most used blogging platforms in the world, and for a good reason!
Like is said, it's very user-friendly, and there are so many templates to choose from so you can really make your blog look as unique as you want! WordPress is free, which is also a plus!
Now that you have chosen your blogging platform, we need to look at web hosting sites and reserving your domain name!
4. Choose Your Web Hosting Site
For those of you who don't know, a web hosting site is essentially where you are going to store all your online web files.
This is not optional; unfortunately, you will need to purchase a web hosting site in order for your blog to go live. However, I have the perfect web hosting site for you!
Bluehost hands down offer the best web hosting services by far on the internet. In fact, WordPress is actually partnered with Bluehost. So, you know they are legit! Here are some of the great features that Bluehost offers:

5. Pick a WordPress Theme
One of the reasons why I absolutely adore WordPress is because they have thousands of free themes that are entirely customizable. Seriously, ladies, you can get as creative with your theme as you would like!
You can create your own theme, or you can use a premade theme if you wish. Regardless, WordPress these are nothing but aesthetically pleasing for the eyes. I'm serious.
When I was trying to pick my own theme, it took me hours to choose one that I was finally happy with because they were all just too pretty! Besides the themes being adorable, they are also super functional.
They will be super easy for your audience to navigate through, which is what you want! You can even go the extra mile and pay for a website developer to make a WordPress theme for you!
6. Download WordPress Plugins
As I mentioned, there are so many incredible WordPress plugins that will help enhance your blog. A lot of the plugins are free, with premium versions if you want to subscribe for more features. Here are some useful ones that you should take note of:
- WPForms: This helps you make contact forms for your blog if any of your audience members want to reach out to you! This feature will help you with your engagement!
- Google Fonts: Choose between hundreds or thousands of fonts for your blog that will make your blog pop and work in favor of drawing in an audience!
- WP Super Cache: This will help ensure your blog is running as quickly as possible. Optimal speed means that your audience members will have a better experience as they click through your blog.
7. Post Your First Blog Post
Once you have completed your website, it is time to post your first blog post! Make sure to do some research to see what is trending in your niche and get writing! You can write these yourself or hire a content writer to do it for you if you get busy!
