Great food, cheap entertainment, steals, deals and free stuff. There is so much happening in the Santa Clarita Valley you don't know about! The "SCV Moms Blog" community helps moms connect with each other and express their passion for all things family. Members share honest opinions about the valley, including the services, businesses and people it's made up of.

Started by parenting/lifestyle blogger and former TV executive, Jackie Morgan MacDougall, the community is the first step in the SCV Moms Blog plan. "The moms in Santa Clarita are so powerful, so connected. It's about time we gave them a voice. How many times have you heard about something happening only to find out you missed it? This is our way of sticking together, sharing experiences, opinions and great finds."

MacDougall's mission is to grow the community and expand its voice on local radio, TV and in Santa Clarita-based publications. "I want the SCV Moms Blog to be like Good Housekeeping. If we give a local business, organization or event our seal of approval, people trust it. It helps the consumer, the business - the entire community."

Andrea Pohlot spent several years as a marketing executive before moving to the SCV to raise a family. Now she juggles her role as mom and founder of popular blog in fashion design. "I'm excited about the opportunity to help small businesses drive in local traffic and generate enthusiasm about their involvement in our community.

But MacDougall and Pohlot don't do it alone. Joined by experts in food, fitness, healthcare, finance and more, the SCV Moms Blog scours the valley for the good, bad and (sometimes) ugly. From eats to entertainment, education to the economy, the team is dedicated to finding what people want - always keeping it honest and real.

This week, the community kicks off with a giveaway-a-day, featuring local businesses, throughout the month of October. Several restaurants, boutiques, fitness studios and vendors have already signed on.
