I’m a new Mommy Blogger Series

May 27, 2010

I’ve been asked, as I’m sure a lot of us have, how to break into the giant world of blogging. I know it’s easy to feel lost, unknown, and completely overwhelmed when you first start a blog. And there is SO much to learn that it’s almost impossible to get going without some help.

So after thinking about it, I came up with this idea. I’m starting a series of posts titled, “I’m a new Mommy Blogger and…” It’s going to be a combination of things that all new mom bloggers should know or need a heads up on, from:

-giveaways
-conferences
-what to pay for and what to pass on
-getting your blog name recognized
-hosting guest bloggers
-blogging etiquette
-selling ad space
-what you’d wish you’d known

I’m looking for other bloggers who want to contribute to this – mom or not. I have a list of topics being worked on, but there are many things I don’t know much about (like ads) or only have my perspective on (like hosting a guest blogger). If you have a topic you think I should add, feel free to send me it and we’ll add it on! I’d love to have a wide variety of women chime in on this – from new bloggers to seasoned ones – all ages and backgrounds.

* Our first topic is at the bottom of this post – it will run next week. There are some ideas on what we might need advice and suggestions on.

I’d love to work with you all to create a really great list of do’s, don’ts and advice. I’ll link up to each of you in the posts that contain your advice, and quote you with whatever info I use. The posts will be relevant from before a blog even gets started, to about a year in. I think most of us can all learn from that!

And – if you’re interested in reading and want a specific topic talked about, email and let me know. I know I may be missing some things new bloggers want to know.

Let me know if you can help in any way – hormonal-imbalances at hotmail.com . If you have blogging friends you think might be a great contributor to this, feel free to pass the link along. The more info the better.

* The first topic will be on Advertising and Giveaways. Some ideas for advice to a newbie blogger you might write on could be:

  • How to host a giveaway
  • Ideas for entries
  • How to get companies to do giveaways with you
  • Companies that work with smaller blogs
  • How to get ads
  • How much to charge
  • When to put ads up after starting a blog

Thanks – this should be a lot of fun! 🙂
