Why I’m Changing My Blog

Thank you for following my blog! This blog began after a layoff, as a way for me to learn about personal finance with money saving articles.

Then it turned into a blog about couponing, freebies, and store deals. However, there are hundreds of other blogs that do this as well. And many of them do it a lot better than me!

To be truthful, I can’t be online all day as other bloggers are, as I take care of my active 2 year old daughter full time. I am a wife and mom first and a blogger second. Since I can’t be online all day, I can’t catch all the deals that come.

I still love freebies and deals but I also don’t want to post things that are valid for just a few minutes or even a few hours. Freebies are so unpredictable.

There’s no way of knowing how long they’re be available and I don’t have the resources to keep up with them. And it’s disappointing to you, the reader, when you come across a freebie and click through, only to find out it’s no longer available.

As you can see, my blog is going through some changes. I want to have a better blog that different from the rest. I won’t be posting store deals or the freebies anymore. There doesn’t seem to be as much interest in them as money saving articles.

So what will I be focusing on?

  • Working from Home
  • Parenting
  • Money Saving Tips

What do you think? What topics would you like to see more of? I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I like money saving tips, might work from home some day but am retired now. My chikldren are all grown but I pass on parenting tips to my grandchildren to use with their children. I can see why yoy are changing your blog, good luck with the changes.

    I like your shift so far! And you know, you can always do deals – but post them on Facebook. That we your FB fans get a little “extra” :-)

      Great idea, Sarah! I’ll consider that since I still have the urge to post deals sometimes.

    I’m glad to see the change. There are already a bunch of coupon sites and I like having sites that are more focused.
    Besides I am not looking for freebies or coupons. I really need help with managing our finances and saving money and working from home resources or joining the workforce again after being home with kids resources, etc.
    Those things are harder to find done well.

      April, thanks for the feedback. You’re right, managing finances is hard especially with a family.

    I recently narrowed the focus of my blog as well. I, like you, was trying to cover too much, when my expertise really lies in the world of Childrens’ Apparel. I am now working without feeling like I’m constantly behind. I’m wondering why I ever thought there might not be enough content to post about?!?
