How to Start a Mom Blog

Suzanne Galante, of San Carlos, Calif., loves being a mom to her two boys Riley, 3, and newborn Carter. But the once full-time journalist also loves being a writer. Blogging -- writing down her thoughts in an online journal -- gives her the opportunity to do both.

Suzanne Galante, of San Carlos, Calif., loves being a mom to her two boys Riley, 3, and newborn Carter. But the once full-time journalist also loves being a writer. Blogging -- writing down her thoughts in an online journal -- gives her the opportunity to do both.

"I really needed something in my life besides parenting and I didn't have the energy to find freelance work," says Galante, who started her blog, Mother in Chief (motherinchief.com) in January 2005. "Now I'm my own boss with my own agenda and deadlines."

What's great about blogs is that anybody can start one. All you need is five minutes to set up an account with one of the many free blog sites -- and a desire to speak your mind online.

Some mommy bloggers say the support they get through their blogs can help fight the isolation they sometimes feel. Follow these steps and let your mommy blogging adventures begin.
