If you are wanting to build your blog up to the point that it allows you to become a SAHM, then I believe a list would be helpful.
Let’s say you are posting in your “Product Reviews” section about a new product.
If you happen to be an affiliate for that new product, say “Boomerein – the retractable safety rein“, then having the ability to send an email to your readership about your new product review with a link to the review will generate exposure.
Of course, you don’t want every email to include a link to a product. you also want to be able to inform your readership about a new recipe you posted, or a Mums story about her dating experiences, or maybe a Mums inspirational story about surviving an abusive relationship.
Your blog has so many worthwhile topics, and being able to let your readership be aware of the variety of subjects about which you write would have to be an asset for you.
Of course, I’m just a guy, and probably not your target audience, but I believe your blog is going to be one of the ones that people refer to when they say, “This is how you do it”.
