“I hope, above all else, moms find Flagstaff Moms Blog useful,” said Amanda Beda, Flagstaff Moms Blog Co-Owner & Co-Founder. “I love everything Flagstaff has to offer my family and am thrilled to create a community with other local moms and provide resources that will be helpful to them.”

Beda and Murphy are the most recent in a quickly-increasing list of moms signing on as site owners within the City Moms Blog Network, which now boasts 71 sites nationwide and millions of readers each month. At each site, local moms, like Beda and Murphy, sit at the helm and recruit more local moms to contribute content and offer expertise in all topics associated with motherhood. All City Moms Blog Network site owners are connected to a network of like-minded entrepreneurs running sites across the country. This community of moms, all dedicated to connecting moms in their own cities, work together to make sure each site is successful.

“We are thrilled to welcome Flagstaff Moms Blog to our sisterhood of city mom blogs,” said Stephanie Flies, City Moms Blog Network founder and director. “Moms in the Flagstaff area now have an excellent resource for events, advice and connection with nearby moms traveling through this motherhood journey together.”

“City Moms Blog Network is a strong group of women located across the country, who care about their local community,” added Beda. “I have admired their site owners and vision for some time and am thrilled to bring that mission to Flagstaff, Arizona.”

City Moms Blog Network began with Scottsdale Moms Blog in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2010, where the unique community blogging approach caught on quickly and moms across the country asked to replicate the model in their communities. The 70 sites in the City Moms Blog Network sisterhood represent hundreds of moms as owners, thousands as contributors and millions as readers.
