The Scoop Blogs

About The Founder

Kristin Mastre has been blogging for many years, starting with her family blog in 2005. Her personal family blog has been highlighted on and various other parenting blogs around the world after writing about the challenges of pregnancy, parenthood and the adventures of raising two boys in the Rocky Mountains. She began writing a health and fitness blog in 2007 that had posts published by Fox News, Reuters, USA Today, iVillage, and a multitude of news stations across the country. After noticing that there was a lack of food bloggers in Fort Collins, she decided to throw her hat into the ring in May of 2009, becoming the top blogger in Fort Collins and the city’s restaurant critic.

After three years of writing on Feasting Fort Collins, Kristin noticed that there were many people in the community who wanted to pursue community writing, but didn’t quite know how to make it happen. Wanting to help develop the community in Northern Colorado, she founded The Scoop Blog Network in April 2012, creating a team of nine local writers with each one covering their own local niche topic.
