Local Moms Win Mom Blog Contest

Lowell, MA (July 19, 2010) – Five local moms have been selected as featured bloggers for The Merrimack Valley Mom Blog, sponsored by Lowell General Hospital and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. The mom bloggers were selected from a contest sponsored by the two hospitals where moms were encouraged to visit Lowell General Hospital’s Facebook page and post a written narrative or video explaining why they would be a great mom blogger.

The winning bloggers are Sabina Chen, a 41-year-old new mom who recently moved to the area; Amy Dienta, a mom who admits she over researches everything; Meredith McKay, a 30-something mom who has lived in Lowell her entire life; Tiffany MacKay, a mom and employee of Lowell General Hospital; and Jane Marshall, the reigning Mrs. Massachusetts. Although 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 have conversations with other moms and mommy blogs are a great way for them to come together and exchange information,” says Michelle Davis, Lowell General Hospital’s Director of Marketing Operations and Community Development. “By choosing to follow a mommy blog, women are gaining inspiration and gathering 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 August. 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 posts will come in the form of video posts. The bloggers will meet in person every other month at ‘blogger brunches’ to share ideas and brainstorm upcoming topics. There will also be guest posts by medical experts at the two hospitals who will provide valuable and timely healthcare information to the readers.
