I was looking to feature 50 new bloggers on Mom Blog From Home in 2018 and to my surprise, I reached that in just one month! If you have been blogging for a year or less and want to be featured, sign up below for the second group of 50!
Join The Lucky Ones!
I am so very excited to be featuring these amazing bloggers! One of the best parts of blogging is meeting fellow bloggers who share your passion! Now I am going to share them with you!
Hello! My name is Jenessa. Long before the sun rises, I teach English online. As soon as light peaks through the windows and all day long, I am a stay at home mom. Then, in those few free hours I find during nap time and right before bed, I blog.
I created Think Read Parent because after two years of dedicating myself to parenthood, I needed to reconnect with writing. When I began this journey, I was quite certain I had no real direction. I was going to be bumbling around in a chaos of thoughts and words; however, as I began writing, I found a focus coming into view. While that focus isn’t fully developed yet into a streamlined niche, there are topics I have developed a strong knowledge of enjoy writing about.
Here you’ll find my experiences – crazy, wonderful, terrible, or funny – as a parent. Hopefully you will learn something valuable you can use with the children in your life or you can simply relate to my parenting adventures. You’ll also find recommendations for my favorite books and authors and have the opportunity to learn from my blogging ups and downs.
Over the last few years I have thought often of staring a blog. But I would always let the thought pass and keep on trudging through life. ‘Wasn’t I busy enough?’ Was always my thought. Yes, I was defiantly busy. I have three kiddo’s a 5, 3 and 2 year old, my husband and I started a business four years ago and expanded two years ago to add another location. To say the least, I was overwhelmed with all that was on my plate. Even though I love being with my kiddos as a SAHM and would not change that, I was exhausted and could not find time for me. Almost a year ago the idea to do blogging came back but this time it stuck. I decided that I would start my blog so that I could have time to use my brain again, time to use my abilities and feel like I’m accomplishing something. I had done a few first steps but life threw me off course for a while and when I came back to my blog, I had a new motivation. My family. I needed to take care of my family. It was no longer just something to do for fun. (Though it still is fun) So with all the motivation I need, I’m determined to be a blogger.
My background as an interior design technologist has brought me a passion for design and creating a home that is a place of joy and contentment. The struggles over the past few years have taught me that happiness at home is part environment and part attitude and behavior (habits). My Blog, designmysunshine.com, is all about finding happiness in the way we design and decorate our homes and in the way we live our lives. I want to be able to help other moms and other women to know how to find happiness in their own lives. I want to share the tools that have worked for me and learn new tools as others share with me what have worked for them. Our houses are a huge part of our lives, what we do there, who we invite there, my hope is that I can be a resource for making others homes their happy place.
Hola! My name is Monica and I am the creator of the ‘Live Better Lifestyle’ Blog. I built this blog because I am passionate in bettering people’s lives by sharing my experience and helping others. I am currently a housewife and I wanted to find a job that will suit me, which I found out is blogging. I started blogging last year but it was a failure as I did not have any experience or guidance. Now, I want to start afresh and learn that I need to treat my blog as a business. In that perspective, I will be able to bring my blog to the next level.
Your name: Lisa Crowther
Blog name: Mum Versus Boys
Blog URL: www.mumversusboys.com
About me: My name’s Lisa, I’m 39 (about to turn 40 in a matter of weeks!) and I live in Nottinghamshire, UK, with my long-suffering husband and our three boys, aged 14, 12 and 10. For the past 12 years, I’ve worked predominately in the world of expert witness work, where no two days are the same; in my day job, I try to help experts to fine tune their writing and express their opinions clearly. When I’m not at work, I love to write and spend time with our boys. We’re lucky to live slap-bang in the middle of the country and have some beautiful areas such as the Peak District and Sherwood Forest on our doorstep.
How long have you been blogging: I follow a few different Mum blogs and I always really enjoy reading what other mums are up to and how they tackle day to day mum life. I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while as I love to write and while my day job revolves around writing, it’s usually other people’s! I think writing is a great way to reflect on your day and what you’ve got going on, whether that’s the trauma of navigating the floor-drobe in my 14 year old’s bedroom or sharing ideas for activities. Mum Versus Boys has only been open for business for about two months, so as newbies go I’m fairly green!
What is your blog about: Mum Versus Boys is a parenting and lifestyle blog about the challenges that life raising three active, and very different, boys throws at me. I like to write about day to day life as a working mum and also what I like to do when I get home. I enjoy the occasional rant and this year, I’ve written a lot about what it means to be turning 40! For me, it’s about finally feeling happy in my own skin and not worrying too much about what other people think.
What is one thing you need help with on your blog: I think I’d like to have a little more of a strategy/plan around content and to really begin honing this.
Blogging goals would be: to work on my social media presence, network with other mum bloggers and to have people, apart from me, reading and engaging with Mum Versus Boys on a regular basis!
I’m Maddie, a college student, passionate writer, aspiring journalist and social media marketer! I am majoring in communications and media studies. I am a full-time student, a part-time hostess at a restaurant, and part-time blogger. I never really read blogs, because I didn’t quite understand what they were all about. But during my first semester of college, I was on Pinterest, looking up tips for college success, and I came across a whole new world; blogging! I started reading/following tons of college bloggers and lifestyle bloggers and I became obsessed. After about a month, I told myself that, I could do the same thing. I loved writing, and I love helping people out, so I decided to create my own blog, and provide college students, like me, navigate college, potential careers, and other aspects of life. My blog is centered around college tips, but I also blog about lifestyle. Some posts of mine include tips for time management, and what to do before starting a new semester. Recently, I decided to help other new bloggers and started writing some posts about how you can start your own blog. My blogging goals, ultimately, are to help college students, and really anyone at the age of 17+ (because college isn’t for everyone) to succeed in their classes, their jobs, and anything else they pursue, and also to help new bloggers succeed in their blogging journey. I’m still new to this whole blogging world, so I figured I could take my knowledge, and we, as new bloggers, can learn together!
My name is Leah. I’m a new mom who used to be a Kindergarten teacher at a low-income school.I love working to make a difference. I’ve always loved writing too so when I had my son on Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to find a way to stay home with him longer and that’s how the idea of a blog started.
I’m a regular college student making it by on a low-paying job while pursuing a degree to change that. I try to balance work, school, dog parenting, relaxation, and the pursuit of a career all while (hopefully!) getting more than a few hours of sleep. Life is hard and not always pretty, which is a struggle to remember when you see all the pictures and statuses on social media. I started blogging to give a different perspective to everyone while teaching them about a variety of subjects.
Hi friends! My name is Kylie, and I share a travel blog with my partner Gabriel called Wandering We Go. We started this blog to talk about our travels, food from around the world, everyday struggles and successes, and how you can travel too! After getting my degree we saved up, quit our jobs, and set out to explore the world.
Our first stop was Asia. We like to stay in countries for extended periods of time to really immerse ourselves in the culture, so we stayed in Taiwan for 13 months. During that year we quit smoking, started running, and made lifelong friends. To pay for our travels, we started a digital marketing business called 2oddballs. We build websites for other bloggers and businesses. I have never been healthier, and I have never felt more alive!
In that first year, it was really hard for me to blog. Gabriel blogged away, but for some reason I had a lot of anxiety about it. This time around, we’re in Cuenca, Ecuador, and I’m working on building the courage to blog more and more. I love to write, and I love to travel, so I’m trying to live my best life!
Being able to travel AND work in the field I love has enriched my life in so many ways, and I want to help others find the same joy. Hopefully, through our travels, we can encourage and help others along the way in their personal journeys to discover the safest, quickest, and cheapest ways to travel the world and do what they love.
My name is Ellie and my website/blog is called House Gone Sane. As a busy mom and step mom of 4 kids total, I know how crazy life can be. I often joke with my husband about our ‘typical’ day (aka the average day when everything that should be simple goes totally wrong.) Through it all, my goal is to maintain my sense of humor and sanity, instead of focusing on the drama or problems in life I can’t control.
On my website, I love sharing tips on family & home life and homemade recipes, so other moms & expecting moms can have an easier time despite the craziness in their lives as well. I currently offer a free pregnancy eCourse to help expecting moms prepare for the remainder of their pregnancy, and I am almost finished with a premium pregnancy course.
I previously worked in a doctor’s office for several years, but quit during my 1st pregnancy. I later started working at home writing for other
companies’ blogs and decided to start my own. Although it’s busy, I love working from home so I can spend more time with my family.
As a person, I believe that you can succeed with just about anything if you are determined and put forth the effort. And no matter how crazy life gets, you can stay happy and sane!
My name is Dominique Gunn and I am 32 years old. I work for a non-profit where am I am college advisor to 11th and 12th graders. I have been married for 7 years in May.
I have always had people tell me I should write a book, or blog, have my own talk show, etc. Essentially I had something worth saying that people wanted to hear. God started telling me I needed to blog, to share my story with people but I wouldn’t do it. I always had an excuse. It took me over a year to say yes to that prompting. Two things happened just last year that finally pushed me to do it. First, I was praying and praying for God to help me find my passion. I had taken quizzes online but nothing was really sticking. One of my best friends invited me to see Emily Giffin. I wasn’t necessarily a huge fan of hers but it was inexpensive and you got a signed copy of her book. Someone asked her how did she become to be a writer. Her answer is what gave me the nerve to finally take the leap. She said she had been journaling for everyday for years and she used some of that to write her first book. She said she rarely missed an entry in 19 years. I journal everyday! I have notebooks upon notebooks of me writing, pouring my heart out to God but nobody seeing it but me. Her start was not conventional. So I figured if she could do it then I can to.
My blog is about helping people grow in their relationship with God and helping them realize why that is important. I want to help people realize what pleases God and not just focus on what pleases them.I want to help people seek his face and not his hand. I want to show people and myself that you don’t have to do what the crowd does, you can be an individual. I want people to know their value and stop comparing themselves to what they see on tv, movies and social media. I want them to know that they are not alone and if they invite God into all areas of their lives they will flourish, even when they mess up.
I would like to increase traffic and have a better website design. I would also like to eventually turn this hobby into something that can generate some income. I would love to sell products, and go talk to college students, young professionals and 30 somethings across the country about letting God take them to the next level.

I’m Emily, a mom of four kids ages 4 – 10. I’m married to my high school sweetheart Mike and have been a stay at home mom for 8 years. I always wanted to be a wife, a mother, and to take care of my family.
My interests include cooking, baking, and sewing and I’ve always enjoyed the creative process. After all these years, I’m pretty good at getting this stuff done. I show my family I love them by putting love and care into daily tasks that often times feel so mundane.
How did this blog come about? It was my husband’s idea. The two of us started a blog (www.marriedandharried.com) writing about frugal living, personal finances and family time management.
After a year and a half I wasn’t happy. I was feeling down on myself because I couldn’t make that blog work. Mike mentioned that I’m always answering baking and cooking questions from people. Why not start my own blog sharing my skills and knowledge? If he believed that I could do it then I should give it a shot.
So why am I doing this? I want this blog to become my full time job. My youngest goes to kindergarten soon which will free up time to work outside our home. Ideally, I would work from home so I’m available for my kids, while contributing to the family finances.
I’m here to help you make your house a home and turn everyday chores into acts of love. I plan to have several ebooks coming out in the future, a course or two, and maybe even in-person events once I get the hang of everything else!
I started this blog because I was a jack of all trades but not really implementing my ideas. There were so many ideas floating around in my head but I was all over the map! Some of those interests and ideas included different ways to make money while others were just things on my bucket list. The concept of having a side hustle and/or how to make extra money kept coming up in conversations that I would have with different people from family and friends to strangers even. This topic especially came up when talking to mothers who wanted to be able to stay home with their kids or who were already SAHM’s. This common theme sent off a lightbulb in my head.
So one day I decided to start a Work from Home blog and get it all out of my head and in writing. I wanted to have a platform and voice to teach others how to create supplemental, residual, and passive income for themselves.
My background includes a degree in Business Administration, a Masters in Education, and I also hold a current Real Estate License. If you’re like me and wear many hats and have multiple interests you’ll love Ratrace Resolutions.
So here I am! Let me help you escape the 9 to 5 working smarter not harder.
My name is Tristan Robinson, I’m 20 years young, married to my best friend, cosmetologist, and a new blogger. Growing up I was always intrigued by all things beauty and unlike the growing generation today I didn’t really have a place to look for new fun things to try until I was in high school. This is all why I started blogging, always teasing the idea but never actually doing it until September 2017! My blog is all things beauty, products, and tricks I’ve tested and then share with my readers. My goal is to eventually make my blog my job as a second income while my husband is in school, and hopefully, it will become big enough that it helps grow my clientele in my full-time job as a cosmetologist!
My name is Katie, I am 18, a young wife, and a follower of Christ. I’ve been blogging for a little over a month now. I was struggling with what I wanted to do as a career, and my best friend convinced me to blog because I love writing and I’m pretty much an open book. I’ll tell you almost anything if you ask. I’m currently going to school for nursing, but dream of becoming a full-time blogger. At first, I wanted to blog about anything and everything, but When I wrote my first post about “The Right Way to Elope”, I realized how much I love my husband and my marriage, and so I decided to center my blog around marriage, and Christ. Nowadays, Christians are an outcast, so I thought “A Tulip in a Rose Garden” would be the perfect name for my blog. I hope to spread marital inspiration to others and help couples grow closer to each other by growing closer to God.
Lissa Rose Co is a blog for moms who are creative, motivated, and determined by nature, but who may need a little push every once in a while. Let’s face it, raising kids is challenging. Every day brings on a new battle, but with the right mindset and effort, it can be a whole lot easier and more enjoyable. That’s where I come in. I teach moms how to improve specific areas of her life (like her home, health, financial, relationships, etc.), that affect her whole family. I aim to inspire moms to be the best version of themselves every day because she is the strength holding up the family. Take me as an example. During a long nine-month battle with postpartum depression, I wasn’t the only one suffering. My mental health was in a poor place which led to unhealthy habits and a great deal of negative self-talk. I wasn’t in a good place, so my family wasn’t either. When I decided to take back control and approach each day with positivity, a beautiful thing happened. Suddenly we were all happier, closer, and headed in the right direction. That’s why I created LRC – to offer moms the same valuable information and tips that turned my life around. As a bonus, I also offer branding and graphic design tips for beginners new to blogging. Why? Because I’m passionate about creativity, and the moms I serve are, too. Blogging can open up so many doors, and having a strong brand makes all the difference.
Hey! My name is Priscilla from Sweet P’s Dream.
My husband, Jon, began affectionately calling me “Sweet P” early in our relationship. We were married in June of 2000 and are now parents to two amazing teenage boys. I stay busy with homeschooling our boys, driving them to and from ballgames and music lessons, and managing our home by keeping my kitchen simple with homemade gluten-free food.
Sweet P’s Dream is basically my dream of being a stay-at-home mom coming to reality. As a child, when people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always say “a mom”. God has given me the life that I dreamed about even as a little girl. I am so thankful!
If you are new to cooking and looking for recipes that are quick, easy, and affordable, you’ve come to the right place. Most of my recipes are super easy and have been passed down from family members or friends.
Although we are gluten-free, these recipes are easily adapted to be full of gluten. Just simply use regular flour instead of gluten-free. In fact, most of my recipes did not start out as gluten-free.
Sweet P’s Dream is also for those looking for parenting tips and support. I don’t claim to have it all figured out, but I have learned a lot over the last 15 years, and I am happy to share my experiences and what has worked for our family.
I’ve also created this tiny piece of the internet for my boys. I want it to be full of how-to advice and step-by-step instructions, so when they are grown and decide to leave the nest, they will have something to look at to help them along their journey into being a “grown up”.
There is no rocket science here…just our family’s way of doing things. Hope you find something that can help you along your journey, wherever that might be at the moment!
Hi! My name is Simone and I’m the mom behind the blog at TheSingleMamaThatCould.com. As the title suggests, I am a single mom. I have one 4 year old boy and have been a single mom since he was about 2 months old. It’s been an interesting journey to say the least. I started this blog to help other moms (single or not) with parenting based on my personal experiences. I currently work at a hospital as a medical laboratory scientist, but my passion for blogging is growing each day. One of my goals for this year was to finally launch my blog (check!). I pray that I will be able to use my blog to not only add value and uplift my readers, but to also provide myself financial freedom, allowing me to spend time with my son during his most precious years of life. I am so excited to continue on this journey and connect with more amazing mamas!
Hi there! I’m Rebecca, the voice behind Unexpectedly Domestic. I enjoy the simple things in life – a walk through the woods, a cozy blanket, a tasty meal, or a good book. When I got married 10 years ago, I was truly clueless in the realm of homemaking. But after years of struggling to figure out the best way to manage our home and finances, I learned to implement some systems to keep our lives running more efficiently. I’d love to share my simple strategies for a happier and more productive you.
At Unexpectedly Domestic, I hope to inspire you to:
- Conquer the physical clutter that prevents your home from ever looking clean
- Manage the mental clutter that slows your productivity and clogs your soul
- Live within (or below) your means in order to achieve financial peace
- Save money and time at the grocery store and prepare simple meals
- Take good care of yourself, your family, and your home
E-riches Club started out as a research assistant’s attempt to raise money to attend a friend’s wedding abroad. As a mother on a budget, a trip for three overseas proved to be a tough feat. One thing led to another and today Veronica, owner/author of E-riches Club, is blogging and pinning her way to a side income
What started out as an attempt to get extra cash for a trip overseas has become so much more! E-riches Club is now dedicated to helping aspiring entrepreneurs become financially independent through their online efforts. The blog covers topics about making money online for both people who only want to generate side income and those who aim at building a full online business
This year’s primary goal for the blog is to start covering content geared to building confidence as an entrepreneur and getting into the right mindset to be successful. On the long run, the goal is to turn E-riches Club into a beacon of resources and insights for anyone who wants to become geographically and financially independent so that they can enjoy their life a little more.
Hi, I’m Lindsay! I blog at www.somethingsplendiferous.com. During the day I am a Reading Specialist, but by night I’m a writing ninja… haha… kind of. When you have two little kids and work a full-time job, extra time is slim.
I started blogging because I love to write and I thought it would give me a good platform to share my passions. My husband says that I’m a natural born teacher, so why not share what I know with others. On my site, you will find teaching tips/tools, learn about my life and get some beautiful free printables.
One of my deepest passions is creating useful tools for others, so this year on my blog I am sharing a monthly calendar spread with my subscribers, so come on over and sign up! I am also working on a subscribers only page, where my freebies will be available anytime! If you are interested in learning a little more about how to teach your child or just want a free calendar, I would love to get to know you more.
I am Conchita Isdiawan, the only girl and the oldest child in a family of five with two brothers. With that, I have grown to be the one who has to experience life first before my siblings. And from that, I had to go through hardships alone. I had to be the first one to learn about life, make decisions about who I may want to become when I grow up, and simply who I am currently. Growing up, writing has always been one of my favorite things to do. It was a way for me to express my thoughts, dreams, and what I have experienced. I started a blog for fun when I was only 12 but I was too young to truly understand how to blog. Years later, I found my passion to blog again: to inspire people with my stories and fashion. So that’s how “Hello, Conchita” came to be! My goal is to inspire many people, to raise awareness about common but unpopular life struggles, to give tips and ideas about how to dress, and more. I want to help empower people and give them confidence with my words, that is my ultimate goal.
So, who are we, and why blog? We are, from oldest to youngest: Kristin, Kim, and Katie. We decided on using our maiden name for the blog, hence We Three Shanes. We love movies and quote them too much. We could live off of Flamin’ Hots and Dr. Pepper. We talk about food while eating food. Our blogging journey begins like many other blogging sisters that have come before us- 3 sisters living in 3 different states wanting to stay connected.
We have been talking about starting a blog for some time now so we are excited to finally see this idea come to fruition. Be that as it may, this dream of ours doesn’t happen without our readers. We are thrilled to begin a partnership with them! To be honest, being a couple weeks in we can’t say with certainty what our blog will be about because we don’t quite know what will resonate with our readers. We are a lifestyle blog that will be sharing tips and info on frugal living, organization, recipes, DIY projects, Decor, minimalism and more. Having said that, we really want to cultivate a strong connection and relationship with our readers so our post reflect what they want.
In this world of social media and blogging, things tend to come across as “perfect”. We want to tell you right now that we most certainly aren’t. We are on a journey with our readers to get ourselves off the hot mess train that we’re all on, in some form or another. While we have a good amount of common ground between us, we each have specific skills as our area of expertise. Kristy’s the organized one, Kim’s the cook, and Katie’s the crafty one. Collectively we make up ONE qualified blogger.
We have lots of differences which you will notice in our personal bios and as you start to get to know us and read our posts. We hope as you read you will share your thoughts with us. We want this blog to be about our real lives and we want the things we share to be authentic. We hope through sharing these parts of ourselves you will enjoy our posts, but also may find you are not alone in some of your struggles. There is already too much division in the world, so let’s do this together! Come be friends with the Shane sisters.
Hi everyone! My name is Diana Hall, and my blog is called Mastering the Side Jam.
What’s a Side Jam? It’s a creative way to make extra income — like side hustles, online gigs, you name it!
After years of allowing debt to hold me captive, I finally decided to do something about it.
I’m searching high and low to identify the best ways to make money on the side.
And I plan to document it ALL, so I can share what I’ve learned with anyone else who might be struggling with the same issues.
Because, let’s face it, debt is not fun. So we might as well dance our way through it, jamming to all the fun & creative ways we can find to pay it off. So this blog is all about my Side Jams — what I’ve tried, what I recommend, and what I’d do differently.
Life isn’t perfect. But you learn ~ you grow ~ you dust yourself off and begin again.
And I’d love to have you join me on this journey to take control and finally achieve financial freedom.
My Blog is about reviewing albums and songs from my favorite gospel artist so that other gospel music lovers will get an honest and sincere option on whether the music is something they will enjoy as well. I also want to create a space for young Christian believers to discuss topics that involve using biblical principles in our everyday lives. I named this space church talk.
I wanted to start a blog as a way to earn some extra money and I knew gospel music is something that I love and could talk about with other people. My goal is to have my blog be one of the go-to places for gospel music reviews, concert reviews and maybe even meeting and working with some of the gospel artists.
