Thank you for 9 years!

Anniversary

Volusia County Moms was launched 9 years ago today! Thank you for helping to make it the most popular family friendly website in the county!

As I've shared many times before, VCM was an idea I had for two years before I ever started. Having two toddlers at the the time, I longed for a place where I could go each week and find all kinds of information for local families. I knew there were things going on in the county that I'd love to do with my children, but it was difficult trying to find them. I waited for two years for someone else to start something like that before I finally realized that I was the one who needed to do it. I launched the site and grew it into the resource that I wanted as a local parent. Along the way I've tried to make it into a resource that the parents in this community will use time and again to find the information they need on events, activities, classes, sports, and more. The website continues to grow each year in terms of the number of page views and users. The website has had great success over the years and I'm grateful that the community has embraced it so much! 

VCM By the Numbers:

  • Almost 4 million page views since it was started.
  • Nearly 6,000 pages of content.
  • Roughly 23,000 unique users per month.
  • Over 30,000 Facebook fans.
  • Over 730,000 page views in 2017.
  • 80,000+ page views in the last 30 days.

Volusia County Moms has grown each year and is the number one resource that families turn to in the county to get information for their family fun. The site has many local advertisers who help make the site possible and are able to reach their target market with affordable advertising options. VCM is a valuable resource for families, businesses, and tourists. Not only is there an events calendar that is used routinely by people as a resource, but there is also a local business directory, reviews, parenting articles, special event and camp guides, and information on hiking, camping, and biking in the area. 

Thank you for the last 9 years. I look forward to many more!
