About us: Supporting Area Families 24/7 since 2008
In September 2008, Charlotte Bowman, a freelance writer and work at home mom with a 5-year old and a 2-year old, realized that there wasn’t a central online resource in Columbus, GA, where parents could access information about local events and resources specifically for families.
So she launched a blog called Muscogee Moms®… targeted moms with young children (infants to age 14)… added a list of upcoming events… and told a handful of her friends.
The rest is history!
Muscogee Moms is now an extensive online resource and events calendar for families with kids of ALL ages! We cover events within the Columbus Metro Area — up to a 50-mile radius.
Our social media and mobile networks (including our website, Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest page, weekly e-newsletter, and mobile/SMS database) reach thousands of parents across all socio-economic levels and offer a broad range of information that is useful for anyone working with children.
In September 2011, we launched a sister website in Troup County – LagrangeMoms.com. The new site is similar in appearance and functionality as our main website, but provides details about family-friendly events and resources in Lagrange, Hogansville, West Point and the surrounding communities.
Today, Muscogee Moms offers the local business community a targeted way to reach busy area families who are online 24/7. These local businesses can showcase their products and services in our Business Directory and via banner ads on our website.
As we grow, our goals remain the same–to keep parents up-to-date on family-friendly community activities and to connect them with the wonderful family resources available in the Chattahoochee Valley.
