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: Queens, New York
The team at Queens 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 Queens, the area they know better than most. With an all-mom team of locals, Queens 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 Queens 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 “Best of/Top 10” lists in a variety of categories to jumpstart your creative genius, ensuring no bored kids or parents either!
Because the Queens 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, Queens Mamas brings their readers numerous other benefits. In order to promote the community-feel that moms and bloggers love, Queens Mamas offers an email blast of events delivered straight to inboxes, puts on a local expo of vendors and services catering to Queens moms and gives great discounted deals on a “Winter Class Blast” to keep your kids active throughout the chilly season with soccer, swimming, art and more! With all the perks of just a few clicks a day, Queens Mamas seems more like an exclusive club than just another mommy advice column sure to get lost in the blog shuffle. -- Melanie Baker
