I am excited to announce that as of today, bigbluetrunk, founded by Letitia Chan Peypoch and Tamara Russel, is now a part of New Media Parents: the company that produces the Mom Maps iPhone app and the Kids Play Guide website. Bigbluetrunk family travel content will be incorporated into the New Media Parents portfolio of mobile and web applications. As of April 26th, 2011, the bigbluetrunkwebsite will cease operation as an independent service.
New Media Parents is pleased to include bigbluetrunk into our family of products and believes that Mom Maps and its line of mobile applications can make bigbluetrunk’s vision of great family travel a reality. As part of that vision, Letitia Chan Peyoch will act as an advisor to New Media Parents.
Since launching bigbluetrunk in 2008, its users, contributors and articles have created a sizable source of family travel resources. Bigbluetrunk has consistently provided great family travel ideas, practical advice, and given parents the inside track on family outings and trips with the kids! New Media Parents is pleased to include these contributions – and the users who created them – into to the New Media Parents family.
On behalf of everyone at New Media Parents, we thank the bigbluetrunk community for your contribution to family travel over the past two years and hope that you will continue build on the great family travel ideas going forward. Happy travels!
