Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 30, 2008
CharlotteSmartyPants.com, a popular blog for Charlotte moms and moms-to-be looking for parenting tips and regional resources, has re-launched as a comprehensive Web site including a marketplace and expanded resource listings.
"Since our launch last fall, we have been overwhelmed by feedback from Charlotte moms who say they have come to depend on our Charlotte Smarty Pants blog for daily information and insight," said Jen Plym, Chief Founding Mommy for CharlotteSmartyPants.com. "By building a Web site around our blog, we hope to be an even greater resource for Charlotte moms and a welcoming place where they can connect with other moms with whom they can share and learn about motherhood."
Exploring topics from which stores have the best prices on formula to managing life-threatening allergies in children, CharlotteSmartyPants.com bloggers dig deep into the needs and interests of moms raising children in Charlotte. The evolution from blog to a Web site built around the blog makes the site the premier resource for Charlotte moms and moms-to-be on a variety of activities, events and motherhood-related topics.
The new CharlotteSmartyPants, which includes a Google search tool for enhanced topic finding, includes:
- Smart E-Place - A maketplace where moms can buy, sell and locate children's items and services, from baby gear to toys to nannies.
- Smarty Pants Blog - Daily updates by a blog team and guest bloggers give view points and tips on parenting, activities and issues affecting moms and children. Comments by readers add information and provide discussion, agreement and disagreement to give a complete perspective on the topic.

CharlotteSmartyPants.com also announced its blog team.

The CharlotteSmartyPants.com Web site was designed and developed by Smarty friend Bill Baker.
CharlotteSmartyPants.com was founded by friends and Charlotte residents Jen "Jen P." Plym, a stay at home mom of four, and Jen "Jen B." Bunich, a working mom of one, who pooled their parenting experiences and resources to create an online community for women seeking tips, knowledge and connections with other women who share similar parental triumphs and challenges. CharlotteSmartyPants.com today is managed by Jen Plym in the memory of Jen Bunich, who passed away from a sudden illness in February 2008.
