Do you dream of earning thousands of dollars by working from home and still taking care of your young children?
To be honest, it is not difficult to start a blogging journey but it is not easy to build a profitable blog. Making a living out of blogging certainly takes skills, practice, and expertise.
If you are truly determined to make money from your blog, then it is most certainly helpful to learn from the most successful bloggers to have tried and tested methods!
I have to admit some of the courses that I attended are quite meh and I unsubscribed from
some blogs after finding them less than insightful.
I want to help new mom bloggers save time and money.
My objective is to help you save time by sieving through the overwhelming amount of blogging resources online and sharing with you the most successful mom bloggers whom I have benefited so greatly learning from them in the past year.

The list is arranged according to the chronological sequence of which I signed up for their mailing lists in the past year.

1. Ruth Soukup - Elite Blog Academy
To be honest, I didn’t think very much about Ruth Soukup when I first bought her Blogging Bundle. *nervous laughter*
It wasn’t difficult to decide to get the Blogging Bundle at $7. I went through Ruth’s “Blogging 101 Workbook” and “Blog Planner” but somehow, I didn’t feel inspired. I felt like there wasn’t much content in it. (Muffled gasps in the audience)
I now realize that back then, I was this ignorant blogger wannabe who didn’t know who Ruth Soukup really is! How big her presence and influence is on the internet and in the circle of mom bloggers! *totally embarrassed*
On hindsight, I wasn’t ready to learn the correct ropes back then.
I had my ideals and dreams about setting up a blog and making money online but I wasn’t open-minded enough to go through Ruth’s resources and really sit down and fill in all the questions in her workbook..
What a big mistake that was!
I bought Ruth Soukup’s Blogging Bundle in late March 2018. But it wasn’t until only a month ago that I printed out all the resources that I have from Ruth and Elite Blog Academy!
What was my trigger?
Because I couldn’t afford to sign up for Elite Blog Academy.
In case you weren’t aware, Elite Blog Academy is only open once a year and registration takes place for five days only!
Each day I received Ruth’s email appealing to me to sign up for EBA. I read through her emails, I read all the amazing testimonies from other mom bloggers, and I was really sold!
But the big problem was, I really didn’t have enough money to sign up for the EBA course. Even the monthly payments were not an option for me.
March 2019 would mark one year of my blogging venture. I’ve had some successes through Google Ads, selling my printable planners, and skyrocketing my blog traffic through Pinterest.
But my growth wasn’t enough and I knew I had to do something about it. I knew EBA would very likely be my golden ticket!
Since I couldn’t pay to sign up for Ruth’s EBA course, I decided I would print out and go through every single one of her resource that I have and hold on to her words of wisdom!
And I’m so glad I did!
Ruth’s “How to Blog of Profit (Without Selling Your Soul)” is a gem!
It’s jam-packed with incredibly useful information that will greatly benefit new mom bloggers and also those who have been struggling with monetizing their blogs.
Ruth Soukup is not just any blogger with a profitable blog. She is most certainly a professional blogger with a keen business acumen.
Ruth has created a highly recognizable brand for herself and grown a huge following over the years.
I got Ruth’s “Irresistible Email” course through Ultimate Bundle’s Genius Blogger Toolkit 2018. And....I kept it in my inbox until only recently! *sheepish grin*
I promise to be honest to you, which is why I’m admitting all my mistakes of procrastination!
So please, if you come across any Ruth Soukup’s free resources or special promotions, grab them and dive into them immediately if you really want to see your blog business grow!
Stick around for more detailed reviews of Ruth Soukup’s courses!
2. Elna Cain - Twins Mommy
I came across Elna’s Twins Mommy blog when I was searching on how to use Pinterest to increase traffic for my blog.
I was immediately won over by how beautiful and Pinterest-perfect Elna's blog is. I didn't hesitate in paying for her Pinterest Perfection Masterclass because I believe that she really knows her Pinning business well.
What I admire most about Elna is how sincere and down-to-earth she is and her willingness to share.
Elna has been very responsive with relevant advice on her Mom to Mompreneur facebook group. I have benefited greatly from the honest sharing and kind support from the other mom bloggers in the community too!
Furthermore, Elna is a mom blogger managing her online business and taking care of her kids at the same time, which I totally admire and aspire to become.
If you desire to build a beautiful blog that can attract a lot of traffic using Pinterest, then you definitely have to learn from Elna. She knows Pinterest extremely well and has a proven track record in using Pinterest to build a successful online business.
In addition, I have done quite a bit of research on various bloggers who are also selling Pinterest-related courses.
If you look at the Pinterest profile of some of these Pinterest course creators, their monthly Pinterest viewers are less than 500K.
Yes, many established bloggers will tell you that Pinterest high monthly unique views do not necessarily translate to a huge blog traffic.
But if you are a blogger selling a course on how to use Pinterest to increase your blog traffic, shouldn’t your Pinterest monthly views be high? A high Pinterest monthly viewership would mean that the blogger is still very active on Pinterest and is putting their words into action.
Elna is one of the very few Pinterest course creators who currently has very high Pinterest monthly views (1.4million) and a huge Pinterest following (over 34,000!).
This tells me that the Pinterest methods that Elna teaches really work. And she truly knows her stuff because she’s totally on top of the game!
3. Laura Smith - I Heart Planners
I got Laura’s “How to Create Your Own Printables” course through the Genius Blogger Toolkit 2018. To be honest, I actually decided to purchase the Genius Blogger Toolkit because I really wanted to attend Laura's course!
In her “How to Create Your Own Printables” course, Laura goes into a lot of details and presents very clearly in a step-by-step manner how you can easily use your Excel to create beautiful printables.
I was then equipped with sufficient knowledge and skills to create my own printables that have been generating a lot of blog subscribers who love my creations and have even sold some in my shop!
If designing your own printables to give away as freebies and lead magnets on your blog is something you want to do, then you must definitely learn from the best in this niche.

4. Chelsea Clarke - Her Paper Route
I got Chelsea’s “A Micro-Influencer Handbook” course through the Genius Blogger Toolkit 2018 (yes, this again!) and I have to say that it was a mind-blowing learning experience!
The Micro-influencer Handbook course is a must-have especially for all newbie bloggers! It really provides great insights and very useful information and guidance that you can keep referring to as you build your blog and business.
If you want to learn from a highly experienced blogger with proven track record of success and a full grasp of developing an online business in all aspects, you most certainly want to learn from Chelsea and “A Micro-Influencer Handbook” here.
In addition, if you are a completely new blogger and worried about the technical aspects of setting up a Wordpress blog, Chelsea can totally help you with that!
Chelsea was super responsive in the emails that we exchanged and set up my new Wordpress site in a really short time! She also offered many resources to help me with the technical know-hows of using Wordpress.
Chelsea's Website in a Box service most certainly illustrates her skills and expertise in Wordpress and reinforces that she really knows her stuff when she teaches others to build a profitable blog.
5. Sarah Titus - SarahTitus.com
Sarah Titus has the most amazing and inspiring story for all moms out there!
She always so genuinely shares her personal experiences and how her faith motivates her and is the main driving force of her business. I am always excited to see Sarah's emails in my inbox!
I am still in the middle of the Million Dollar Shop course and will most certainly provide a detailed review when I have completed it. So stay tuned!
I also deeply admire Sarah for her dedication to her craft, constantly producing new amazing works. Furthermore, she comes across as a really generous and big-hearted lady.
Couple the wonderful personality with great expertise makes Sarah a truly worthy professional blogger mentor to learn from.
Just so you know, I am finding Sarah's Million Dollar Shop course to be filled with awesome tips and detailed step by step guide on creating a Shopify store. She also has wonderful recommendations on the type of products to sell that will be profitable for you.
As much as I find Sarah's course highly valuable and informative, it might not be suitable for everyone, especially if you are a new blogger on a really tight budget.
Also, you might probably want to build a blog with a steady stream of traffic before selling your products. It's better to have a ready audience to sell to than to set up a store with lots of products but no audience to pitch the sales to.
I have learned that in my own hard way, losing quite a number of blog subscribers. But that's a story for another day.
I still truly believe that Sarah Titus is an incredible blogger mentor to learn from if you are ready to dedicate your time and resources into building an online store!
Did I tell you I was completely new to Photoshop?
That's just how fantastic and empowering Sarah's course is! If you want to create gorgeous and practical printables for your blog readers, or even just as a hobby, you have to learn from this professional who totally knows her stuff!
But if you aren't quite ready yet, I would still strongly recommend that you get on Sarah's mailing list! She generously gives away so many awesome freebies and offers special discounts to her subscribers!
6. Kara Fidd - Simplifying DIY Design
Kara is an amazing mom blogger with a distinctive niche of her own.
She is brilliant at design and has created dozens of beautiful and functional templates that are incredibly useful for me and many other bloggers!
When you get your hands dirty into this blogging business, you will soon realize that there is SO MUCH to do other than just writing!
Therefore, Kara is a complete life-saver with her wonderful templates!
I first came across Kara's templates in the Genius Blogger Toolkit 2018 (Yes, I love Ultimate Bundles!) It was the "Editable Canva Workbook Template". I looked through it and saw how easy it was to create a new workbook of my own that I could use as a lead magnet for my blog or sell as part of a course!
Kara's templates will take away all your fears and worries about creating beautiful designs. There are so many variations in each template to choose from. And from there, you can just plug in your own pictures, change the fonts and color here and there, and voila! Beautiful masterpieces created in minutes!
Just imagine the hours Kara's templates will save you in creating different products for your blog. From pins for your posts, to email banner images, to printables that you can use as lead magnets, Kara has templates for them all!
Just last week, I created a media kit in less than thirty minutes to send to an online advertizing agent who reached out to me for partnership opportunities!
Furthermore, not only does Kara's courses provide you with many useful templates for your online business, she also teaches you how to use Canva skillfully!
I've also had the wonderful opportunity to interact with Kara directly on her Facebook group specially created for users of "The Product Creator's Ultimate Toolbox". I am absolutely won over by Kara's absolutely lovely and encouraging personality!
