How It Began
It was a May 2016 day when Ruth read This Stage of Life? It’s Hard. from Austin Moms. She read it over and over again. Each time the words never failed to make her emotional. The post struck a chord and prompted her to research the City Moms Blog Network (CMBN), now City Mom Collective. Ruth quickly realized such a resource was lacking in Green Bay and the Fox Cities.
Starting a blog was always something she considered, but she kept it tucked away in the back of her mind…until that day in May. With encouragement from her husband, Chris, Ruth inquired about starting a site. CMC put her in touch with Alisa, Owner of Madison Moms, Co-founder of MKE Moms, mompreneur, overall rock star. One phone call and they knew it was a fit…Green Bay Area Moms Blog was created.
In late 2018, Ruth decided it was time for a new season of life and began looking for a new owner. Local stay at home mom, Amanda, had recently found Green Bay Area Moms Blog on Facebook and felt compelled to take on this new adventure.
In February of 2019, Amanda became the new owner of the Green Bay Area Moms Blog.
Running a business is not something Amanda had done in the past, but she knew she could help make an impact in her community for other Moms just like her. Green Bay Area Moms Blog has an exciting future ahead and we’re so glad you’re here with us!
In July 2020, Green Bay Area Moms Blog became Green Bay Area Mom! The word “blog” didn’t accurately describe what Green Bay Area Mom was all about, so we updated our name, logo/look, and website to serve our community even better!
We are your locally focused parenting resource for the Green Bay and Appleton areas!
