I seriously reckon I spent as much time looking for help online in the first year of being a Mom as I did in the whole of my 30 ish years pre being a Mom!
Believe me when I say you have experience and knowledge that another Mom is currently out there searching for!
How do you choose a Blog niche?
A niche can be based around a certain topic, such as Homeschooling, or Organisation. Or based on your audience and their lifestyle or worldviews, such as Being a Single Mom or Mom to Twins.
Most niches combine a topic and an audience, such as Homeschooling Twins, or Home Organisation for Single Moms.
When you are deciding what you should blog about, here’s some things to consider:
What are you passionate about?
You do not have to be passionate about a subject to build a successful blog around it.
But it definitely helps if you can get excited about your Blog topic! If all goes to plan, you’re going to be blogging about this topic for many years. And if you dread writing a post because you’ve chosen a niche that you find dull as dishwater, your Blog isn’t going to last long!
Think about the things that you get excited about, that you love to do, or read about, or help others with. Your enthusiasm for your topic will speak to your readers and fill them with enthusiasm to take action.
Where does your experience lie?
Again, you don’t have to Blog from personal experience but your audience are more likely to trust what you’re saying when they know you’ve actually experienced what you’re talking about.
Brainstorm some blog niche ideas based on your life experiences, hobbies, jobs and education.
What do you get asked about by your friends and family? What do people ask you for help with? Are you the ‘go to gal’ for advice on a specific topic?
Is your Blog Idea Profitable?
If you’re starting your Blog so you can make money while staying at home with your kids, you need a niche that is profitable.
There are lots of different ways to make money blogging, including affiliate marketing, sponsored posts and selling digital products so it is highly likely you will be able to monetise your Blog, regardless of your niche. But some are more profitable than others, so if making money is a priority for you, you might want to look into monetisation options before settling on a niche.
Choosing a niche is an important part of starting a profitable Blog, but it can stop a lot of new Bloggers before they even start.
So, to make it easier for you to work through the steps of choosing a Blog niche that gets you excited I’ve created this free Niche Discovery worksheet. Just click that link or the image below to grab it. You don’t even need to give me your email address!
Your Blog niche is flexible
Finally, remember your niche is flexible. Some people make choosing a niche a big thing but it’s not as important as they’re making out. You can always widen your niche, get more specific, or even just completely change direction as your Blog grows!
I don’t want your uncertainty about a niche to stop you taking the plunge into this thing called Blogging, and missing out on all the benefits it brings, so here they are; 50+ Blog Ideas for Moms, plus some of my favourite examples…

Her aims are to help her readers minimize stress, create peace and build connection. Which she does with a collection of Free email courses for subscribers and Military Life and Parenting printables and ebooks in the shop attached to her blog.
Mom Blog Example: Techie Homeschool Mom
I love the Techie Homeschool Mom Blog. I’m a big fan of technology and, even though I don’t homeschool, me and the twins are always hopping online to find the answers to their questions about the World around them. Homeschooling is a popular Blogging niche, and Beth has built a successful Blog about using technology in Homeschooling and has developed this into a business selling her own online study units and running an online photography club.

Mom Blog Example: Earth Trekkers
Earth Trekkers started when parents Julie and Tim, and their 2 children decided to take 13 months off work and school and travel round the World! This blog is the perfect example of how sharing your own experiences can be an inspiration to others. Now the family are home, the blog has continued and Julie shares stories of their shorter travel adventures plus informative posts on World travel for their Blog readers. This recent post tells the story of the development & growth of the blog and is a great lesson in how a Blog can change but still be successful. https://www.earthtrekkers.com/life-as-a-travel-blogger/

Don’t panic if that list has provided you with loads of ideas! The fun thing about being a Mom Blogger is you aren’t limited to writing about just one thing.
Many successful Mom Bloggers blog about lots of different topics. The benefit of blogging about a variety of different things is you will soon learn what your audience like the most. You’ll be able to write them content they love, instead of first deciding on a niche, then having to find an audience to fit the niche.
Like I said, I don’t want niche uncertainty to hold you back from Blogging. Blogging has so many unique benefits for Moms, including providing a creative outlet, a wonderful community, a sense of purpose and of course the freedom to make money from home.
