Finding a blog niche that drives traffic and makes money are important elements of choosing a blog niche.

While it is also important to be passionate about your niche and have some experience or knowledge with your niche, having a target market that has needs that they want to be solved, and are looking for products that can help them solve those needs is an important part of picking a blog niche that will make money.

Starting a blog is an excellent way for you to express yourself and share your love, life, and passions with others.

However, starting a blog also comes with the ability to make money online, and is a fantastic opportunity for moms who want to make money from home.

Today, for a little inspiration, I am going to share with you some favorite mom blogs that are in niches that drive traffic and make money.

Also, one thing you will find in this post is that none of the niches are blogs about blogging.

While you can make money in this niche, sometimes it feels like that might be the only way to make money blogging, and it isn’t!

The blogs below are making a full-time income in their niches that are not about blogging. They are rocking it!

Let’s explore these eleven blog niches that drive traffic and make money, these are niches you can start today and get on track to make money blogging!

1| Parenting Blog

The parenting niche is a very profitable niche. 

Parents have questions that need answers, and parents want products and services to help them parent better.

I remember when we brought our first child home from the hospital. I still remember thinking; they are just going to let us take her home, where is the handbook, shouldn’t I take a test to make sure I am going to be an ok parent.

I also remember saying quite regularly, “I am so glad she wasn’t a twin, I never want to have twins.” LOL….read my story here if you want to know how crazy that was.

Also, if you are a parent, you already know the struggles and worries every parent faces, and sometimes just sharing your experience is enough to help other parents learn and feel connected.

The blog Mommy on Purpose is a parenting blog from Carly, a stay at home mom who blogs about pregnancy, entertaining kids, keeping the house clean, and saving money.

She grew her blog quickly to over 400k pageviews, her last published blog income and traffic report shows in one year her making just over $5,000 a month blogging. Amazing!

The monetization of her blog comes from ads and affiliate marketing. What I found interesting was that the majority of her income comes from posts about parenting, not about blogging.

Way to go Carly!

6| Newborn

The newborn niche is an amazing niche to serve. As a mom, you know the needs of a newborn are endless.

When you are a mom for the first time, or even the fourth time, just what you need and what is the best is important to you.

I bought a new stroller with every single pregnancy I had. I am not crazy or excessive; my needs just changed with each pregnancy. 

My first pregnancy 1 kid = 1 cheapy stroller that didn’t turn well. 🙁

Second pregnancy twins = double stroller. The toddler had to walk. 🙁

Third pregnancy = Everyone wanted in the stroller. I didn’t want a huge stroller, so I needed something that would be sturdy and fit my needs. So I bought a crazy expensive, worth every penny, versatile stroller. The UppaBaby Vista, it had so many different add-ons like a rumble seat and a hoverboard back, and was a smooth ride over everything! All four kids found a way to hitch a ride on that thing. Happy Momma!

Ok, I digress.
