What started as an innocent on-line baby book in early 2008 to chronicle Jill Smokler’s stay-at-home days with her children, quickly transformed into a vibrant community of parents, brought together by a common theme: Parenting doesn’t have to be perfect.

Scary Mommy rapidly grew and amassed a following of a million plus imperfect moms across the US and beyond, becoming the number one parenting brand in the country. In 2015, the site was acquired by Vinit Bharara of the media company Some Spider, LLC. After almost three years acting as Chief Content Officer, Jill departed the company in 2018. 

Jill is also the New York Times bestselling author of Simon and Schuster’s Confessions of A Scary Mommy and Motherhood Comes Naturally (And Other Vicious Lies). Her honest take on parenting has appeared in countless publications and on television programs including The Today Show, Good Morning America, Nightline, Bethenny and Fox and Friends. In 2017, Forbes magazine named Jill a top ten parenting influencer.
