9781466222052: The Best Book On How To Start A Mommy Blog

Learn How To Start A Mommy Blog!

Julia Levy, mother of 2, shares her story and lessons learned in starting Little Austinite, one of Austin’s biggest and most well-known mom blogs.

The Best Book On How To Start A Mommy Blog

Julia Levy’s blog, Little Austinite, caters to a niche audience of parents in Austin, Texas. After starting it in 2008, the blog expanded rapidly, earning 1000s of readers per month. In this book, she’ll show you, step-by-step, exactly how she became a successful mommy blogger.

What's In The Book

  • Find content in limited free time: Moms hardly have time to get ready in the morning—much less write a blog! Learn how to integrate content into your daily life, so you don’t have to sacrifice time with your kids (even if you do want them gone for an hour or two).
  • Sketch out a basic blog concept: plan ahead early, so you don’t have to change everything once your blog takes off!
  • Target the right audience—whether a niche group or general readership: don’t let your subjects fall on deaf ears, even if they do at home. Find an audience, outside of family, early on.
  • Search for the professional template that fits your needs: which platform should you use? Should you use a professional or free template? Which layout won’t hurt your readers’ (and your) eyes?
  • Drive traffic to your blog with Facebook, Twitter, and SEO: Social media isn’t just for savvy college students anymore! Use social media to connect with other moms and draw traffic to the site.
  • Set up Google Analytics to track visitors to the blog: so addictive, it’s almost criminal. Use Google Analytics to track unique visitors, page views, and time spent on the site.
  • Kid-friendly topics that parents care about: cover basic questions parents want answered that you already know as a mom. Don’t just write a laundry list of Jack and Jill’s daily activities—no matter how exciting they may be!
  • 3 statistics advertisers look for in a blog: know what paying advertisers look for in a blog—unique IP addresses, page clicks, and average time spent on the site—so you can reap the profits from your time and effort.
  • 5 ways to monetize your blog: mommy blogging can be lucrative. Learn how to make money with ads, outside shops, and sponsorships.
  • Gauge reader response: track the posts your readers like most. Become a social media maven by checking Facebook “likes” and comments. Tailor your posts so readers come back for more!
  • Create a network of mommy bloggers: don’t spend all day alone with your kids! Tap into social media and local playgroups to find a network of moms to share triumphs and trials with.
  • Resources and examples for inspiration: look at popular mommy blogs like The Pioneer Woman and Dooce to find what works best (and what you would change!)

About the Author:

Meet Julia Levy

Julia is the mother of two children, a daughter who is six and a son who is three. She devoted four years to her family as a stay-at-home parent, taking an extended leave from teaching advanced biology. To chronicle the adventures with her children, Julia turned her classroom website into a personal blog which began with a baby announcement and continued as daily postings for nearly four years. Life by all appearances was grand.

Within one year of Lehman Brothers' collapse, the recession touched her personally when three family members found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly unemployed when entire departments were laid off in company downsizing. They and other friends struggled to find employment, and small retail shops and restaurants went out of business.

In 2009, Julia launched a new mommy blog that expanded readership beyond just family and friends. The mission was two-fold mission. Help Austin area families find local forms of entertainment. Help area businesses in bringing families to them. The idea was to keep Austin vital by encouraging others to eat local, play local. Julia took what she understood most, parenting her children in Austin and blogging, and turned that into the mommy blog Little Austinite.
