If you’re a mom, this is one of the best things when it comes to blogs. The City Moms Blog Network has unique sister blogs for different cities around the country. You can find events, great offers for moms, and fun things to do around your city.
Here’s a little bit about how it got started…
“In 2010, two friends, Steph Flies & Joy Cherrick, started Scottsdale Moms Blog out of a desire to connect moms in their community. They saw a need for moms to be able to share local information, recommendations, and build friendships all from the convenience of their mobile phone, tablet or computer. Shortly after, women all over the country began approaching them to do the same thing in their cities. City Moms Blog Network was formed and has since been launching Sister Sites everywhere to connect moms in their community, both online and offline.”
I happened upon the Moms Blog for my area by accident. Last holiday season we were having lunch on the patio at one of our favorite restaurants. As we were eating we saw that something was being set up right next door and then all of sudden, out walks Santa! He was waving to the kids and then took a seat in his fully decorated photo area. After we ate, we went over and found out that for $10 you could get your photo with Santa (by a professional photographer) AND do a fun craft, have cookies, and hot cocoa. WHAT!? It pretty much costs ten dollars just to walk past the Santa at the mall. So Mason got the sweetest photo with the big guy, we had a great time, and the photos were emailed to me a few days later for my sharing and printing pleasure.
Now, I’m pretty sure the event wasn’t put on by the Moms Blog, but thats the kind of stuff they tell you about!
For example, did you know that Costco is having an event for MOMS where you can get in an hour early to get some holiday shopping done along with giveaways, treats, etc.?! Well, they are! You’ll have to check out their blog for more juicy info. www.citymomsblog.com
You can see if they have a Moms Blog for YOUR city here: http://citymomsblog.com/our-sister-sites/
And if they don’t, you can contact them and YOU could start one for your area! Let me know if you do, because that would be completely awesome.
By the way, if you live in AZ and still haven’t tried The Soda Shop, it’s time. I become more addicted every day. In case you missed that post, you can read about The Soda Shop and some of our other favorite food places here.
