8 Of The Best Resources For Mum Bloggers
Hi, Mum Blogger!
If you’re new to being a Mum blogger It can be pretty overwhelming to start with.
I fully appreciate that it’s a minefield deciding on what programmes and resources you need to help you being you’re blogging journey.
When I first started out blogging, I did what most of us do, asked in Facebook groups to see what resources other mum bloggers were using for different aspects of their blog.
However, I found this super time consuming! As Mums we totally don’t have spare time to be messing about when setting up a blog (or for much else for that matter!).
We need to just get on with it super quick whilst the little one is asleep.
So today just for you my lovely, I’m putting together this list that will hopefully save you a lot of time.
I’m hoping this list of the best resources for mum bloggers will give you a good place to make a solid start!
All of these resources I personally use myself right here on my own mum blog.
I use Lyrical Host to host my blog. I did start out with a free domain and hosting on wordpress.com.
However, I soon wanted to put ads on my site so I went self-hosted.
Being self-hosted has plenty of advantages and defiantly makes it easier to monetise your blog.

I use the Holly & Weave Blog Theme by Pipdig.
They have the most beautiful themes for your blog at a sensible price.
I use Canva to create everything graphic for my blog.
Blog headers, logos, Pinterest images… you can do it all.
Best of all it’s free and I’m loving it.I use Buffer to schedule some of my blog posts to my Facebook and Twitter blog pages.
The free version only lets you schedule 10 posts at at time.
I’m still using the free version but I plan to upgrade soon, because it’s super useful.I use Tailwind to schedule all of my Pins on Pinterest. It is not free but it is worth it.
I’ve currently got 100 pins scheduled everyday.
I couldn’t manually pin at that rate, as a mum I just don’t have the time.
So for me Tailwind is a must.
After my blog name and hosting this was the next thing I paid for.
I use Mailerlite as my email client.
Mailerlite is free for your first 1000 subscribers.
This makes it a great choice if you’re just starting out your mum blog.
I use this to create sign-up forms, landing pages and pop up bars at the top of my blog.
To capture those all important email sign-ups.
I use MiloTree to create a little pop up on my blog.
This pop up links to one of my social media profiles and encourages people to follow me.
I use Airtable to organise my blogging life.
It’s an online version of spreadsheets crossed with a database.
I’d be lost without this as it keeps me on schedule.
These step-by-step guides are perfect for helping you make a success of your mum blog.
Work your way through these to start you off on the right path.
One of the best resources for mum bloggers are Facebook groups set up to help mum bloggers on their blogging journey!
