I couldn’t be more excited to be announcing that SaratogaMama is partnering with Saratoga TODAY to launch SaratogaMama Magazine!

Starting way back when I was doing MaltaMama.com, I have remained dedicated to families, and ONLY families. It’s that consistency that has finally paid off, and I couldn’t be happier about what the future holds with this new partnership with Saratoga TODAY!

I am very excited for all the possibilities this partnership will create, which will include among other things, magazines, contests and events. Our primary goal with this partnership is to help our readers with the most important task a family can undertake: raising children,”

- Chad Beatty, owner of Saratoga TODAY

The all new SaratogaMama magazine will debut at the end of February and will be a fresh and unique look at families and life in Saratoga County. SaratogaMama continues to be the only truly dedicated family resource for Saratoga County so the magazine is a natural extension of our brand.

SaratogaMama Magazine will be both enjoyable for parents and for kids. New features – like craft ideas, kid’s games, kid reviews, and opportunities for kid’s artwork submission – will make this magazine unique and exciting.

Our partnership with Colleen Pierre on SaratogaMama Magazine and our equity stake in her family website, SaratogaMama.com, is a natural progression for us as we continue to grow in Saratoga County,” Beatty added.

I’m most excited about being able to include all of YOU! I’ll be asking questions, seeing your feedback, knowledge, expertise and your inspiration. As always, you can email me with any thoughts or ideas. I love hearing from you! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

My name is Colleen Pierre and I am a local gal; born and raised in Ballston Spa, NY. While I have lived many other places, I found myself back in this area to raise my children, Robby and Angeline. I truly love this area and despite being a ‘local’, I find new and interesting things all the time!


I launched MaltaMama.com back in January of 2010. For two years, I maintained MaltaMama as a daily blog about family life in Saratoga County. I was blown away by the positive response I was getting from that site. Seemed that I was not the only mama looking for things to do! SaratogaMama was launched in 2008 by Lizzie Sorensen and I acquired it in early 2011.


I took all of what I loved about MaltaMama and made SaratogaMama better- easier to navigate, more fun to view, easier to share. I also added a unique and exciting component, the ability to ADD! Have you ever wanted to start a group or meet other mama’s in the area? Host a meetup! Find an event that you think we should all know about? Add it! The possibilities are endless.
