@therealsupermum You may want to check with your local chamber of commerce or economic development authority. Mine (Fairfax County EDA in Virginia) offers a monthly class with a wealth of information and resources for new businesses: http://www.fairfaxcountyeda.org/starting-business-seminar If these places are not available or convenient, there might be a Meetup group in your area. Check out this example: http://www.meetup.com/After-Hours-Entrepreneurs/ - This meet up is for all the Entrepreneurs out there who are starting full time and need networking but cannot meet during office hours.
Have you thought about managing others’ blogs? Selling select ad space on your blog? Or have a weekly/monthly sponsor of your blog?
You might also think about submitting a blog entry to a larger entity (Working Moms, Inc., Entrepreneur, Parenting, etc.) as I’m sure that they’re always looking for content. They may offer a small fee.
See if you can’t appear at a local event and get paid for speaking. Another idea is to publish an ebook. Even a $5 book can net you some funds if you have the volume. As Mike Stelzner did with Launch, release the first chapter for free.
Hope this helps you! Good luck.
