Fast forward five years. I’m a mom of one and working a corporate communications job in the Saratoga area that I adore. It’s amazing how well you perform doing jobs you actually like. I was good at my job and for that, I was asked to move to Philadelphia PA to the corporate headquarters. Wow, look at me go! And then… Reality set it. We already had one little boy and just found out we were expecting our second child. We have most of our family in this area. My husband has a great job that he actually likes. We loved our house and the relatively low cost of living (compared to Philly!) For many more reasons, it just didn't make sense.
With my dreams of climbing the corporate ladder dashed, I regrouped and refocused. I left my big girl job and took another role being a stay at home (pregnant) mama. That was January of 2010 and that’s when I channeled my web journalism skills and founded MaltaMama.com. I also remembered how isolating it can be to blog, so offering a community resource blog was much more appealing. I wasn't alone because I was constantly connecting with other mothers and readers.
I started MaltaMama and later SaratogaMama not to talk about me, but to connect with YOU and the community. SaratogaMama has a core team of three, and a team of nine bloggers and contributors. The soon-to-be hatched SaratogaMama Magazine has even more players involved; each lending their skills and expertise. This journey has been an incredible one and I’m happy to be able to share some personal stories and things with you here on my Saratoga TODAY blog!
