As a mom I was constantly looking for ways to entertain my two year old son, and in August 2010 I wanted to offer other moms a weekly update on family friendly events, and toddler/preschooler appropriate activities happening around Marin, CA. I also wanted to suggest venues for play dates, and share my knowledge of local restaurants from a parent's point of view.
The Marin Scoop begun as a weekly newsletter to my mommy friends who wanted to be informed about specific weekend and weekly activities in our local area in a fun and visual way. Word began to spread and I realized that I needed to change the format to a blog so other parents could access the information, resulting in this blog being launched in August 2010.
The blog has evolved into a weekly lifestyle magazine featuring children's products, home decor focusing on children's rooms and other inspirational style ideas for the home, in addition to either a weekly restaurant review or play date idea. I like to support local small businesses and enjoy interviewing mompreneurs to help spread the word about their product or service.
The "Weekly Calendar" allows parents to find out about ongoing activities and events happening in and around Marin, specific to both toddlers/preschoolers and moms with babies.
I recently gave birth to a baby daughter so developing a Weekly Baby Calendar to help other moms find more infant friendly activities in the area and ways to reach out to other moms through Mom support groups.
