I’m thrilled to share an article with you on blogging as a parent from Anna at Layla at MyBabyCare.org, a blog to give resources to new and experienced moms and dads. I know a lot of our mommas are staying home with your littles most of the time (and absolutely rocking it), and several of you already have your own blogs but struggle with how to create an income from it.
So without further ado, here is Anna and Layla’s take on…
“A few days ago I was talking to my mom about how she sometimes feels like a career change. “Can you think of anything else I could do instead? ” she asked me curiously. I just stared at her for a bit before replying, “You do know what I do for a living, don’t you mom? ”
One of the internet’s true wonders is that it allows people with little time, low start-up capital and minimal experience to create a business that would be impossible in the offline world.
And as MyBabyCare grows I notice more and more stay-at-home moms subscribing and emailing me about how they can make an income while their kids are at school or asleep for that hallowed 30 minutes.
The next paragraphs will be about how stay-at-home moms can make good money with online businesses, blogs and websites.
How stay-at-home moms can make money
Obviously this article is not just for stay at home moms.
As I mentioned in the opener, my mom has a job that she really doesn’t like. It causes her a lot of stress and I’m told she often comes home with a massive headache and struggles to sleep at night. I often think that she, a passionate, creative and clever woman, would do extremely well running an online business.
Why stay-at-home moms can still be successful business owners
I started this article after being inspired by the sheer amount of moms who email me and subscribe to my list wanting to know how they can start, develop and grow an online business or profitable blog. Their quest for some sustainable income that they can earn from home while still devoting large parts of life to their young kids really touched me.
When I was born my mom quit her job as a teacher to stay home with my brother and me, but still continued to sell crafts and artwork at local fairs to earn a bit of cash. I’ll never forget going to those fairs with her and watching her earn all this pocket-money and then spend it mostly on us kids.”
Sending love from a cloudy day full of summertime session planning.
Talk to you soon! xoxo
