San Francisco Bay Area Moms is written by local Moms for local Moms. As a member of the well-known, nation-wide City Mom Collective, we are a top-rated online parenting publication and community focused on sharing information, ideas, and personal stories to support, inspire and connect San Francisco Bay Area families.

San Francisco Bay Area Moms is proud to have been ranked as one of the best resources for San Francisco moms by Care.com, one of the top San Francisco websites by Feedspot, and one of the top sites for moms by The Baby Spot.

Our founder, Kelly Arditi, launched San Francisco Moms Blog in January 2016, and we’ve steadily grown our readership and community, thanks to you, our readers! In August 2017, we launched our expansion site, Mid-Peninsula Moms Blog to better serve the towns situated south of San Francisco. In January 2020, we underwent a complete brand overhaul and have further expanded our readership scope to the entire Bay Area when we debuted San Francisco Bay Area Moms.

Part of a Nation-wide Network of Resource Hubs

We are proud to be part of the City Mom Collective, which is the nation’s largest network of hyper-local mom communities and has nearly 100 sister sites across the country. Each Sister Site has a team that creates original content (you won’t see it anywhere else) for their site that’s meant to connect local moms by sharing honest parenting information, creative ideas, opportunities for philanthropy, and fun local events.

Why We Love Partnerships

Sometimes we spotlight products or services in our blog posts and on social media that we think you should know about, and they’re often tagged as sponsored posts. When you see this, it means that we believe this particular company’s offerings will make your life or your family’s lives a little easier, a little more fun, or a little more meaningful.

To share this information with you, we partner with the businesses behind them to test them out. This way, we’re giving you honest information about our experiences, and we’re sure to only work with partners we believe to be reputable and resourceful to you. Keep an eye out for these kinds of posts—discounts or giveaways often accompany them, and you can always find the archive of companies we’ve worked with here. Consider this page the library of our favorite things!

Let’s Connect Face-to-Face

We also work with local sponsors to host events like these throughout the year. Some are meant for the whole family to enjoy and others are mom-only affairs. All are intended to get us out from behind our screens to meet each other in-person.

On top of these coordinated events, our Facebook Neighborhood Groups are gaining traction in getting their own local meet-ups started. If we’re being honest about events, they’re only fun if you show up, so tell us what kind of activities you’d love to see happen, join our neighborhood groups to get the conversations started, and keep tabs on our upcoming events so you don’t miss the fun.

We’re Real People!

All of us who write and contribute for San Francisco Bay Area Moms are really and truly local moms. Some of us are Bay Area natives or San Franciscans, long-time residents, and some of us recently moved to the area. We have babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged kids. Many of us work outside the home and some of us do all our work within it. We try our best to represent a cross-section of moms in the city so that we can share articles that resonate with you. In fact, we’re always open to bringing more voices to the table, so if you’re interested in becoming a contributor, fill out this form, drop us a line, or check out our Guest Post Submission page.

And if you prefer to sit back and read what we’ve got to say, we’re okay with that, too!
