Amy Bellgardt is a work-at-home Oklahoma mom of two boys and wife to an insanely handsome jingle writer. In 2008, she started a blog, MomSpark.net, as a way to connect with fellow moms who were experiencing the same joys and challenges of parenting. Amy quickly found the community and support she needed in the social media and blogging world.
Mom Spark now consists of four writers and has a wide range of articles for moms that include recipes, product reviews, arts, crafts, travel, blogging advice, coupons, deals, and an active community forum. In addition, Mom Spark regularly works with brands on ambassador programs, online campaigns, and guest articles.
In 2009, Amy founded the successful MomMadeThat.com, an online listing registry for mom businesses to promote and advertise their goods and services. Mom Made That! currently has over 200 business listings and was recommended by Etsy.com as an economical method of advertising.
In August 2010, Amy launched a social media company, Mom Spark Media, which helps mom bloggers further their blogging paths by offering instructional blogging and social media courses, as well as unique opportunities to work with brands. Mom Spark Media is now a leader in the mom social media space and continues to grow its relationships with businesses and brands.
