The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: Long Island, New York
The team at Long Island Mamas has a great thing going for their readers. A large section of the site is dedicated to events and fun activities for moms, dads and their tiny tots to enjoy around Long Island, the area they know better than most. With an all-mom team of locals, Long Island Mamas offers a hyperlocal perspective and specified listings for each section of the borough, whether you need a family-friendly restaurant or the best events to hit up during your Long Island weekend.
Mixed in with the boastful and impressive calendar are a few thought-provoking editorial posts, varying in topics from bullying, learning about sustainable green alternatives and teaching kids about saving for college. They also serve up a hefty amount of top guides in a variety of categories to jumpstart your creative genius, ensuring no bored kids or parents either!
Because the Long Island Mamas are indeed just that, the accuracy and selectivity of the listings are superior other blog directories out there. It seems to run as successfully as Kix Cereal, “Kid tested, mother approved”…and then blogged about to the benefit of the masses. The blog is updated daily so you’re never stranded without something fun, exciting and local to do with your kids and teens.
In addition to having a full calendar, Long Island Mamas brings their readers numerous other benefits. In order to promote the community-feel that moms and bloggers love, Long Island Mamas offers an email blast of events delivered straight to inboxes and teams up with the entire Mamas Network to give great discounted deals like the “Winter Class Blast” with soccer, swimming, art and more! With all the perks of just a few clicks a day, Long Island Mamas seems more like an exclusive club than just another mommy advice column sure to get lost in the blog shuffle. --Melanie Baker
