Passionate About Des Moines
and the Moms Who Live Here

Mission/Start A Sister Site

To connect moms to information and parenting perspectives unique to the communities in which they live; to bring the online world of the mom blog to the local level and encourage women to connect with one another offline.

What We Believe :

  • The experience of being a mom can be vastly enriched through meaningful connections with other women – both online and off
  • Children and our families benefit from mothers who feel fulfilled, connected and supported in their communities
  • The pervasiveness and availability of the internet has made connecting online easier, but often leaves a void where women once connected in their neighborhoods, community centers, and the aisles of the grocery store
  • Sharing the real stories and honest experiences of parenthood is both necessary and valuable; doing so in a collaborative, supportive and locally-focused space benefits both the women who write and the women who read, thereby strengthening an integral part of the community itself.

Start A Sister Site

The City Moms Blog Network helps women around the country launch locally-focused collaborative blogs in the cities where they live.

We provide turnkey systems in the startup phase, ongoing education and resources for continued support, and a community of fellow site owners eager to share best practices.

Our sites are owned by women who live and parent in the communities they write about, and who are passionate about bringing local information to their fellow moms.

We’d love to talk with you about starting a local moms blog in your community! Email [email protected] to get the conversation started!
