About Scary Mommy

About Us:

We are the history makers and the memory keepers.
We are the snot catchers and the ass wipers.
We’ve seen it all, heard it all, and smelled it all,
but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are millions of unique women, united by motherhood.
We are scary, and we are proud.

History of Scary Mommy:

Scary Mommy was started by Jill Smokler in early 2008 as an innocent online baby book to chronicle her stay-at-home days with her children. It transformed into a massive vibrant community of millions of parents, brought together by a common theme: Parenting doesn’t have to be perfect.

In February of 2015, Scary Mommy was acquired by Vinit Bharara of the media company, Some Spider. Scary Mommy is now armed with a large, diverse set of editorial assets, including video producers, video editors, staff writers, essayists, breaking news writers and hundreds of contributors from around the country. Its in-house studio also produces original video and other multimedia content for its advertising partners.
