How to Start a Mommy Blog

Are you a stay-at-home mom who would like to make some extra cash in your free time? Starting a blog may be a great way to do that. Blogging can offer you the ability to do share things you enjoy while working as little or as much as you like. By monetizing your blog, it can also be a source of income for you and your family.

Here are some helpful steps on how to start your own ‘mommy’ blog.

First, you need to decide what topic(s) your blog is going to focus on. What are you going to write about? Do you have a hobby or a strong area of interest that would make sense to center your blog around? If not, are you going to write just about the happenings in your family? Or, will it maybe be a combination of both?

Deciding your subject matter is a critical component. Successful blogs are those that update consistently with new, fresh content. Don’t limit yourself too much when it comes to content, but also don’t make your topic base too broad.

After you determine what you are going to write about, you can choose a title. Once you have some ideas for what to call your blog, do some research. You’ll need to make sure that you’re not infringing on anyone else’s existing copyright. You’ll also want to make sure that the domain name is available for purchase.

Purchasing your domain name and choosing a host is the next step. Sites like GoDaddy.com offer domain names relatively inexpensively. There are free blogging hosts like Blogger and some other inexpensive ones such as Wordpress and Squarespace. Inspect them a little, do some research and choose one that seems the most user-friendly and practical to you.

Blogging is like any business, you want to establish a strong brand. So, you need a professional look. Having a professional help you with the design is a good idea.

Then, you need a plan of action for posting. Plan how often you will post and specific topics that you will cover. This helps with the overall organization of your blog, as well as helps you stay accountable and on task.

After you’ve established your blog, you’ll want to consider the ways in which you’ll monetize it and make some cash. You can consider things like affiliate links, paid advertising placements, reviews and giveaways and Google AdWords.

Blogging can be a rewarding experience. Good luck to you! Feel free to leave your questions in the comments!


If your Child has Asthma is it Safe for them to be Around During Pest Control?

It’s a big dilemma if you have a child, and you discover a pest infestation in your home. What do you do about having pest control work carried out? It’s something that many parents may be concerned about.

In reality there isn’t really anything to worry about if you hire a licensed professional to do the job. They have all the knowledge and experience necessary to carry out the work safely and to advise you of what actions you need to take. If you want more information about professional pest control methods click here.

What do you need to be aware of if your child has asthma?

It is true that pesticides can have an adverse effect on people who suffer from asthma, they can cause an attack to happen. This is more likely to be the case if the sufferer is a child as their immune system is yet to fully develop.

This information may make you think that it’s not a good idea to have your home treated with pesticides if your child has asthma; this isn’t the case. The pesticides used by pest control experts are at a low level of concentration which is fatal to the pests but is not harmful to humans, as long as safety precautions are followed. One of these precautions is the requirement to stay away from treated surfaces until the pesticide used is dry.

You will need to make sure this is adhered to by all humans and pets in your home. In addition, if your child has asthma, making them more susceptible to the effects of pesticides you may be advised to keep your child out of the property while treatment is taking place, and while the pesticide is drying.

The professionals will advise you of the actions you need to take, and as long as you follow their advice you and your children will be completely safe.

Why is it important to make sure pest control is carried out?

One thing you should always remember is that it’s vital to call a pest control expert if you have a problem. You shouldn’t be prevented from calling them because your child has asthma. All you need to do is advise them of the fact and they will make sure that everyone remains safe and well during and after the extermination process.

It’s important to note that if you don’t deal with the problem effectively the pests themselves can cause problems with your child’s asthma. Both pest droppings, and cockroaches have allergens that can bring on asthma attacks. If you don’t deal with your pest problem this is likely to happen.

If you have a child with asthma you are protecting them by calling the pest control experts. The professionals will tell you exactly what you need to do for you and your child to remain safe while they concentrate on giving you a pest free home.

Beginner tips for bloggers

Beginner tips for bloggers

Well, if you are planning to start a blog, you need some guidance and help. So, we are posting some of the most important tips for bloggers. Please note that these tips are for beginners. Also, if you want, you can purchase books on ‘beginner’s guide’. Find coupons for the same on ChameleonJohn.

Choose a category

Most of the beginners make this mistake. They don’t choose a category, but try to fit in everything in that little blog. Don’t do that!

Choosing a specific category helps because you can focus on selected topics and post it online. Even if you want to write what you love, you have a category for that. I call it – my thoughts, my world. This category does not speak about one particular topic because it is a collection of random thoughts. You are not expected to be accurate or true.

On the other hand, if you choose ‘review’ category (sub-category – entertainment) where you are planning to post reviews of movies, music and so on.

Whatever it may be, choose just one category and write about it.

Don’t write what others are writing about

As a blogger, you will find similar thoughts posted by others. That is fine. However, try not to post content that is ‘exactly’ same to the content posted on another site/blog. However, writing something that no one has thought about is difficult because there are zillion other blogs all over the world. So, there will be something similar already on the web.

Be expressive, not impressive

With a new blog, people try to impress readers by writing in a professional tone, but their content is basic. But here is a secret, ‘People love reading articles that are easy to understand and something they can relate to.’ So, spend less time wording them and more time on the thoughts. Express your feelings!

Pictures matter

If your blog has no pictures, your blog is boring. Visuals make posts interesting. So, try and add some pictures to your blog. If you think that you are not a good photographer, there are stock pictures available. Use it. Note: Using others’ pictures, you should ask them before using it. Also, have a credit line below or on the image.

Formatting is important

Here, you should follow some rules.

1. Have a specific font size for the content and title. Don’t keep it same. For example, if your title font size is 13, keep the content’s font size around 9.

2. Font color is important. Don’t change it now and then.

Two simple rules. Follow it!

Interactive sections

If you can, have a section in your blog where you can communicate with your readers. This will let you know their thoughts on your blog and help you improve.

However, if you cannot have interactive sections, have interactive sessions. Invite them for a Hangout video chat or communicate with them on other social networks. Do it once a month.

Concluding, these tips should help blogger beginners to create a decent blog. However, one should not expect popularity to ring at their blog doors at the start. This takes time and hard work.
