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. Source
