When I first started a blog, I never knew where it would go or what to expect from it. I saw other’s doing it and thought – “heck, I can do that too”. I remember my boyfriend laughing at me when he saw I had started a blog and asking what I was doing. I really didn’t know.
If you have been with the site for the past (almost) six years, you know that we started as a deal site. I love saving money, and still do. I can make my pennies scream and save a ton of money still. But after a while I found out that it was way too much work for a few pennies per post. I needed to find a way to make this work, and over the years I think I have.
About six months into blogging I started to turn this site into what it is today. I went to my first blogging conference and saw how I could expand my site. I started writing- not just a quick deal and blurb, but reviews, DIYS and other posts. I had an “Ah Ha” moment and thought “Now we’re getting somewhere.” My love for writing came back, my voice got louder and the site started to grow.
Over the years, the site has changed, grown and is becoming better than I had every hoped. It continues to grow still and I know the best is still around the corner. I’m finding my voice still and we have new writers joining us. I’m thrilled to see the site flourishing, and can’t wait to see where it will go next.
Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level.
Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!
