Many mom bloggers start writing as a way to share the lives of young children with far off loved ones. I was no different. AOM wasn’t in focus when I first uploaded photos for my grandma to see. I had experience in writing for About.com, and learned what it takes to write a great article on the web. I had my marketing degree. Where would it go? AkronOhioMoms.com came into focus.
Turns out the demand for content has boomed, and being a blogger with a real face and name with a passion for writing can simply take you anywhere you want to go. Our focus has been tuned:
What we do for our readers: The Akron Ohio Moms.com website creates shareable content to our local and national readers through informative local investigation for families, well crafted, SEO-optimized original and lengthy product and service reviews.
How we’re different. AkronOhioMoms does NOT take the route of many other mom bloggers- we’re not overly invested in the mom blogging community and therefore mom bloggers are NOT the basis for most of our site visits. We focus on bringing our diverse messages and lives to an ever growing crowd of real moms, with a contributing community based here in Ohio, and a pile of others who are continually inspired by our home remodeling posts and so much more. A second but maybe even more important focus is of course through writing search engine optimized posts that track well with Google.
Content Marketing For Our Sponsors
Our writers at AkronOhioMoms are required to be positive, sometimes vulnerable, but never crass or rude. This does take us out of a league of ‘real’ mom bloggers like ‘ mom who drinks too much’, or ‘mom of 2 who will beat you unless you eat your peas’, but our focus is to be, normal with a normal face and a positive attitude.
This voice, coupled with our verbose writing style helps customers make decisions about products they are researching, events they are considering attending, or what pool to visit this summer.

Meet my Kids
Elijah is my pride- my 12 year old son. He will be in middle school for the 2016-2017 school year. Elijah LOVES the exploring the outdoors, camo, archery, science, stop motion animation, and swimming. He is proud of his scientific knowledge of animals and loves to make his parents proud. He loves to learn about the world and is always surprised when his knowledge surpasses those of some adults around him!
Elijah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes two years ago at the age of 9. He has matured incredibly as he learned what diabetes is and how to be his own advocate while at school. He manages his blood sugar levels, counts carbs, and even changes his own sites for his insulin pump. We pray for a cure!
Elizabeth is my 10 year old daughter is my sweet, sweet girl – she is ALL GIRL. She absolutely loves school and making friends is her favorite thing to do. She loves gymnastics, swimming, cooking, being with friends, coloring, and educational workbooks. She is into reading, exploring the woods, and loves playing make-believe! Elizabeth loves to create structure in her playtime and often lines up her toys in long long parades.
Elizabeth was diagnosed at the age of 8 with Type 1 Diabetes (no, it doesn’t run in the family!). She has adjusted very well to this life-long disease and takes control by testing her own blood sugar levels, counting carbs, cooking, and educating others on what Type 1 Diabetes is.
