I received a very compelling email today and I’m going to use it as our next ‘Tip’ gathering opportunity.
Our reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, asks this:
“Kelly, I was listening to this week’s episode of Profitable Mommy Blogging and while I really enjoyed the content, I was actually left feeling sort of down. It’s obvious that the mom you interviewed is a really successful mom blogger. I see mom bloggers like her who reach thousands of readers every day and I get more than a little jealous. I know that’s dumb but I can’t help it. I feel like I work so hard and see little results. How do I get past the jealousy? It almost makes me want to quit.”
She’s referring to my interview with Jennifer James of Mom Bloggers Club. Jennifer is a successful mom blogger and I think a lot of other mom bloggers are looking up to her so I totally understand.
Admiring someone and aspiring to their level of success is great. I think it’s easy to slip past that into a touch of jealousy - but it sounds like this reader realizes that she’s got a serious bite from the green eyed monster.
Do you have some advice for her?
If you have experienced blogger jealousy, how did you deal with it?
We’ll keep the post open for tips and advice until Monday at midnight.
As always, we’ll choose one tipster at random for a $25.00 PayPal thank you
Edited to add: Congratulations Erin, winner of our $25 tip!

Acquiring both of these things takes work and time. Before you devote much of either to traffic and audience building, it is best to develop enough content to make your Blog worthy of the readers you seek.
In her post, The Importance of Consistent Posts, fellow Profitable Mommy Blogger, Merry, indicated that the key to the success of any Blog is providing fresh content on a regular basis. She joins the chorus of successful Bloggers who suggest that three times a week is a good goal for a beginning Blogger to set. Read more
Mom Blogger Alaina Celebrates One Year Anniversary
December 8, 2008 by Kelly · Leave a Comment
Profitable Mommy Blogging Contributer Alaina Frederick is the mommy behind Dinker and Giggles which is celebrating it’s first anniversary with a big contest giveaway.
I asked Alaina if I could ask her a few questions
Alaina, you are celebrating your one year blog anniversary, what made you decide to have a celebration about this?
There was actually two reasons- One it’s a big deal for a website to make it 6 months let alone 12 so it was a great milestone marker for me. The second was I wanted something big to help motivate me even more to provide that refreshing information for parents. Read more
This note came in this morning:
“Kelly, I’m a brand new mom blogger and it feels like there’s a mom blogger club that I can’t find the join button for. How do I break in and make connections?’

When you were new, what did you do to make friends and get your blog known in the mommy blogosphere?
