Jax Moms Blog Celebrates FIVE Years: Top 18 Blog Posts of All Time

How has it been FIVE years already?! Since our launch on October 1, 2012 – we have published (literally) thousands of articles written by local moms in our community. Some topics are lighthearted, some more serious, some funny, some resourceful – but all are written with you in mind and from the diverse perspectives of our writing team. All in all, we’ve had over SIX million visits to our website in just five years! Read more about how we got started, click here.

Below you will find the top 18 of ALL TIME, determined by page views. In addition to these posts below, you’ve made it clear that you LOVE (really, LOVE!) our resources that we are able to provide. We provide monthly round ups or things to do in the Jacksonville area, we do comprehensive seasonal roundups (think spring festivals; splash pads & pools & parks; pumpkin patch roundups; holiday events and tree farms, etc). In addition to all this, we have a handful of sponsored guides and roundups that are meant to benefit both you and the wonderful businesses within our community.

We’ve loved connecting with so many of you online and love even more when we get to connect with you offline at our events! I think we can all agree that Jacksonville is a pretty awesome place to call home and we thank you all for following along on this journey of parenthood in Jacksonville, Florida! A thank you also to our sponsors for supporting Jacksonville Moms Blog and helping make this platform possible.
