While readers can expect to find an abundance of helpful health information, topics are not limited to healthcare. The blog will feature posts about local, kid-friendly restaurants and movies, childcare, summer camps, schools, community events and anything else of interest to area mothers.
"Women want to connect with other moms in their area and mommy blogs are a great way for them to come together and share their stories and experiences," says Vice President of Business Development for Signature Healthcare, Marie Gross. "By following a mommy blog, women gain inspiration and obtain new ideas for handling the demands of being incredible moms, professionals, multi-taskers, volunteers, caregivers and wives."
Each mom will write one to two posts a month beginning in March. The topics will vary greatly, depending on the personalities of the bloggers and their range of daily experiences in the community. Some of their blog entries will come in the form of video posts. The bloggers will meet in person quarterly at 'blogger brunches' to share ideas and brainstorm upcoming topics. There will also be guest posts by medical experts representing Signature Healthcare and Tufts Medical Center who will provide valuable and timely healthcare information to the readers.
