Kristin Mastre has been blogging professionally for nine years, starting with her family blog in 2005. Her personal family blog had been highlighted on NewParent.com 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.
Soon after, 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 outlets across the country. On that blog built an online personal training program for her clients around the world.
After recognizing 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 and local dining expert for the last five years.
Within three years of blogging on Feasting Fort Collins, Kristin noticed that there were many people in the community who wanted to pursue professional blogging, but didn’t quite know how to make it happen. Wanting to help develop the blogging community in Northern Colorado, she founded The Scoop Blog Network in April 2012, creating a team of local bloggers with each one covering their own local niche lifestyle topic.
Kristin took over Fresh Air Fort Collins in August 2014 after its founding in The Scoop Blog Network in 2012. Being an avid outdoor enthusiast, it’s a blog topic that she lives and breathes. She’s spent the last two years hiking one to two different trails in Northern Colorado every week, dispersed camping with her family in Poudre Canyon, exploring alpine lakes, taking up fly-fishing, going on river rafting assignments for freelance writing gigs, and finding sanctuary in the Rocky Mountains.
