Thinking About Having A Mommy Blog?
The one thing you have to consider when going down this road is the fact that this is SUPER saturated, but it IS workable.
After doing all of your research, and you decide this is the direction you want to go, my advice would be to check for what we call " parked domains", sometimes in a parked domain (a domain/or sometimes website that hasn't been renewed) you may find ones that would be viewed as an "authority site" with all kinds of natural back links to it. There are several that I'm considering to get just for that reason, plus for personal reasons I feel the need to blog, just to get things off my chest.
Mommy blogs are heavily saturated, but with great blogging and having products to sell on the side and with VIGOROUS marketing, you'll be alright. When you've hit that wall of frustration, voice it here, we're here for you, or private message me when you need to vent.
Venting will help you see clearly, and come up with new ideas for products or marketing... You'll even start to re-think the ones that you thought were rediculous at a different angle.
You can do it, IF you put your mind to it.
Another small tip, but only implement it when you are comfortable with having your own blog...
NEVER put all your eggs in one basket. Have more than one sit different servers. This way if a server is down temporarily for maintenance, or if Google cans one because of a recent update, it gives you another to fall back on. You may wish to have multiple websites, specializing in multiple product/services. This is what Hipcat and I do. We have many websites. Their purposes are all different, not one is the same. We even run an adult forum...lol that's interesting...lol
