How to Start a Mom Blog (or any other niche blog)


If you follow my blog or fan page, you know that I have been working from home as a freelance writer and blogger for over 4 years. Over the years, I have had a lot of people send me private messages asking me how they can start a blog and even earn extra money from it.
