New Blog on the Block: Park Slope Parents

Get out the welcome wagon and bring 'em a tray of daqueris. There's a brand new blog and it's our old friends Park Slope Parents. This has been in the work for a long time and it was spearheaded by Nancy McDermott (the so-called Parenting Guru of Park Slope Parents) and Susan Fox (one of the visionary developers of that famous list-serve).

In case you didn't know, Park Slope Parents (PSP) is the largest and most popular online parenting group in New York City (!). Today they announce the launch of a new local blog.

What's next? World domination?

The blog will serve as a hyper-local magazine for area families, featuring original content from neighborhood contributors. The PSP Blog, like the Park Slope Parents lists, will be a supportive, fun resource for families in Park Slope and other Brooklyn neighborhoods. "Beyond that, we hope it will function as a point of connection for parents and the community at large," says Nancy McDermott, the blog's editor. "Our purpose isn't to recreate the discussions that take place on our list but to develop and expand on some of the topics and themes relevant to a wider audience."

The blog will place a strong emphasis on local events such as street fairs and concerts.  It will also tackle community issues such as supporting local businesses, crime prevention, and enriching neighborhood relationships. "We see this as a logical extension of the work Park Slope Parents does with other local institutions, such as the Park Slope Civic Council, the Fifth Avenue BID, the Prospect Park Alliance, the 78th Precinct and Community Board Six," says Susan Fox, Park Slope Parents founder.
