Before starting your mom blog, you were super excited to dive in. Starting a blog sounded like a dream you were ready to indulge in and you read all the posts on how to get started. You saw people making thousands in their first month blogging and you were excited to get it going and make it your “side hustle”. It all sounded great, didn’t it?
I see it all the time as a mom blogger. Another blogger comes out with a new, amazing course telling you to just do XYZ and you will gain 10,000 followers or make $10,000 a month easily or change some way that you are blogging in order to gain traction. While the advice in and of itself may not be bad, sometimes we can get caught up in the hype and forget what is important.
Y'all... Blogging is hard and it can be a puzzle to increase blog traffic. There's so much that goes into it behind the scenes. Blog Traffic Analytics, SEO, Pinnable Images, Social Networking, Email Lists. When I first got started last spring, I honestly had no earthly idea what I was really doing.
