And…a New Name. Introducing: Mountain Web Media
On November 1st , 2012, Mountain Mamma made a quiet name change from Mountain Mamma to Mountain Web Media. I didn’t make big racket because I really, really, wanted to have the website launched for the big announcement.
Well, finally, the day is here to formally announce that Mountain Mamma is now Mountain Web Media and that the new website is launched! All contractors and web agencies out there, I know you feel my pain in trying to get this thing completed and out the door in between projects and client work. I’ve had colleagues, friends and clients all gently nagging me for what seems like an eternity about the new site. But really, I am grateful that the interest is there and to have these folks curious enough to ask about it.
Why the Name Change?
A little history for you. Back in 2003, my husband and I stopped in Nelson BC to visit with friends while moving back to Canada. My oldest daughter was 7 months at the time and I would soon be pregnant with my second daughter. A friend and I got to talking about the lack of fashionable outdoor wear for mothers-to-be. Brainstorm: start a maternity clothing line called Mountain Mamma Maternity!
Soon after establishing ourselves in Chelsea Quebec, I found myself contracting web design work and was quickly in need of a business name. Mountain Mamma Maternity suddenly became Mountain Mamma Web Design and Search Marketing. The logo that my friend Leslie had put together for the maternity line was slightly altered to not look quite as pregnant. (Some have always wondered about the slightly provocative nature of the Mountain Mamma logo which features a fairly large belly).
In 2011, I decided it was finally time for a change. Although Mountain Mamma certainly fits my lifestyle, the John Denver jokes in the board room were getting a bit old. No, it was time for Mountain Mamma to retire among other subtle changes to the business.
With that said, I’ll still respond to the friendly call of ‘Mountain Mamma’. It would be kinda weird not to, right?
Moving on, I hope you take a moment to check out some of the projects in our portfolio. I have a fantastic team that works hard to deliver our services: Mich, Jean, Myah, Jacob, Afton, Sara, Fred, Erick…you are all awesome. I’d also like to thank all of you, my fantastic clients, friends and family who continue to be Mountain Web Media ambassadors and customers. Because of you, I truly love my work.
