    Design is good, logo looks cool. Read some content and there are some grammatical mistakes but still readable. All the best. :)

    It looks good but maybe I'll change the theme to something more girly or elegant. I can't explain it properly sorry, it's really good, I just think it doesn't feel like a mom blog apart from the logo.
    Would she write on it or are you going to do it all?
    Beside the theme, everything is great, the content, the ads, etc. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it :) Congratulations on it and on your new child!

    Your site looks okay. There's a handful of broken images and some grammar errors.

    According to Ahrefs, you've chosen very low volume keywords so you're not getting any real organic traffic. (Disclaimer - I'm still figuring out Ahrefs)

    Theme looks a little dated but still quite professional.

    I really like the design, looks decent. I would just say keep pushing out content - keep it as high quality as possible; make it to the point, actionable content that is relevant to your target market. Try to do some more keyword research as well, find and group together some decent keywords that you can target with content. Start pushing it out on social media if you are not already - not just syndicating your content on social media but add value on social media separately - so that you are adding real and unique value for your followers separately on each platform.

    Most importantly dont give up, just keep building that site because these things take time. Looks like it will be a decent project though.

    Your site theme is Good, logo is also attractive but need more work on Speed optimization. Second thing, you have to create good content. Your site content is not upto good level. So create good readable content.

    You might want to slightly change the color tone on the website. Use more of darker shades.

    As far as the blog's layout goes, I would remove most of the stuff from the right sidebar. It has the parallax scroll, but it's so long that the functionality is being wasted. You should remove enough stuff, so that the AdSense banner would be able to track the content you are looking at and always be visible. Or make sure that the last thing that's in the sidebar that the user is going to keep seeing when scrolling would be something like the trending posts, because the tag cloud is simply wasting space and attention - nobody is clicking on those these days. You could have the sidebar start with some posts, then have the AdSense banner, than a few more popular posts and or the comments. Remove the clutter and keep only the things that are really likely to keep the visitor reading on opening new posts, or what makes you money (the banner). The rest is needless filler. If you feel it's important for internal linking and SEO purposes, move it somewhere else.
