Reviewing products: We'd love to review your product! We will review products that relate to parenting and that will help our readers lives- from baby gear, electronics,toys for kids up to age 10, clothes and food. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and write product submission in the subject line. Please include any press info. We will email you the appropriate address (depends on size) that your items can be shipped to.
About our sponsor posts: After a few years of really getting this site together we feel ready to start including sponsor posts. This helps us with the administrative costs that incur when running a blog. You will never see a sponsor post (which is why we do them so sparingly) from a brand or site that doesn't work with our brand or our message which is to help parents navigate parenthood and to feature posts that in some way will help them in their day to day lives.
History on Motherburg
Motherburg was started by Donna Ladd, a Stylist and Fashion Editor in June of 2010 . There were neighborhood blogs at the time in Brooklyn but not in the Williamsburg neighborhood which she lived. Soon after fellow mom Jessica Morrow Glorieux came on board as Co-founder of MB. Together they shared parent news for both Williamsburg and Greenpoint moms as well as moms everywhere, we get visitors from Russia and Korea! 7 years later Motherburg is edited by Donna Ladd. MB loves to connect parents on lifestyle and parenting topics. Jessica now lives in Austin, Texas and runs WillyPoint Kids as well as BrooklynBabyFest .
