Clarks Condensed was started in January 2013 when Katie was trying to find a way to stay home with her baby, Jack, but still use her degree in journalism. After struggling with depression during pregnancy (which was often fueled by the negativity towards motherhood online), she wanted to make sure played her part in bringing positivity to the Internet about family life.
Forrest and Katie didn’t want to be tied down to a particular topic, so the name “Clarks Condensed” was born. It’s a catch-all, nonsensical name that has come to define their blog!
You will really find a little bit of everything here.
On Clarks Condensed, you’ll find topics ranging to parenting and pregnancy advice, easy recipes that ANYONE can make, fun DIY projects (with detailed tutorials), tips for frugal living, travel reviews and tips, and really, a little bit of everything.
