Listen up, moms! Two local ladies launched a collaborative blog written by Cincy moms, for Cincy moms. See how this momtourage is finding fun for your family.
Between balancing meals, activities, studying and work, it’s easy to forget that there’s a world of activity going on just outside your door.
That’s why Sarah Braukman and Jesika Roy launched Cincinnati Moms Blog. According to Braukman, the duo started this collaboration in order to be a trusted resource for all things mom and to bring online mothers together offline in a meaningful and lasting community.
“Whether you live on the East Side or the West Side, Cincinnati Moms Blog strives to bring together a variety of experiences and perspectives, which when combined with the history, culture and tradition of the Queen city, make Cincinnati a great place to raise a family,” explains Braukman.
At Cincinnati Moms Blog, Braukman and her co-founder Roy aren’t shy about showing off their passion for parenting, community and Cincinnati. “We want to encourage our local moms to connect with and support one another, while also hopefully having some fun – both with and without the littles,” she adds.
When reading Cincinnati Moms Blog, you can find pediatrician recommendations, the best products and services to use with your families and maybe even form new friendships you might not have otherwise found without the blog. Braukman says it’s important to Cincinnati Moms Blog that they’re able to offer readers a venue for socialization and support both online and off.
Braukman, a Cincinnati native, and Roy, a Cincinnati transplant, started Cincinnati Moms Blog because they want to take advantage of all that the Queen City has to offer the families who live in it. They also enjoy having the ability to use a blogging platform in order to support and empower local mothers – which isn’t always easy to come by. In all, Cincinnati Moms Blog is comprised of 14 writers and parents.
The content at Cincinnati Moms Blog is relevant and interesting to local moms. Some of these topics include: infertility, pregnancy, humor, education, parenting perspectives, local resource lists, family-friendly activities, recognition, product reviews, giveaways and more. “We strive to produce fun, thought-provoking and varied content so that hopefully everyone who follows us will find something of interest or inspiration to them,” says Braukman. “Our goal is to inform and entertain.”
Since officially launching in September 2014, Cincinnati Moms Blog has hosted multiple play dates as well as a Moms Night Out event. Braukman adds that there are a number of opportunities coming up for the blog that don’t involve the Internet. “We’re in the process of planning some discounted mini-photo sessions with the goal of getting moms out
from behind the camera and into the pictures,” she says.
They’re also planning a summer-long schedule of park play dates and other events for moms.
