Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Humora.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jennifer. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Things were very different for moms when I started MomsGuidetoSanDiego.com about 9 years ago. There was no Facebook, no Meetup.com, and I knew other new moms like me wanted to find local events, businesses and services that provided the things that families need.
But even BEFORE I started the blog, I published The Mom’s Guide to San Diego resource magazine full of awesome coupons, a kids-eat-free calendar and a directory of local events. When I realized there was more demand for information than I could afford to print, the blog was born.
Now that my kiddos are in school full time and I’m unable to do as many daytime activities as we did when they were at home with me, I brought on a partner to cover the “baby beat.” Chelsea and I have been working together for 3 years now. She is the mom of one preschool son and has another baby boy on the way,
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I know that a lot of stay-at-home moms struggle with being at home all day with their kids. That was me 12 years ago. Having The Mom’s Guide as my “job” really helped to make me feel productive while raising my kids. So, if anything, having this blog and magazine has helped smooth the road of parenthood for me.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Mom’s Guide to San Diego – what should we know?
What I like the most about being one of the moms behind The Mom’s Guide is that we make real people happy.
We have given away thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes and services to our readers who are usually moms on a budget.
We help small and large businesses connect to their target audience in meaningful ways.
We provide tons of ideas on things to do with families in San Diego.
Chelsea and I are moms who use the companies we promote. We attend the events that we share. We love meeting moms and helping them find friends and support in San Diego.
We’re authentic and we focus on our local community. That’s what I believe sets us apart from others.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My husband deserves a lot of credit. He is my unofficial business manager, #1 cheerleader, photographer and chaperone to all of the events we are invited to. I can’t forget my kids (and Chelsea’s!) because our blog posts would be super boring if there weren’t cute kids willing to be photographed and videoed on a regular basis. 🙂
