Featured Newbie

**Frugal fanatic**


Tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.

I am currently a stay at home mom and I am blessed to be a mother of 2
little boys, Connor 18 months old and Mason 4 months old.  

Do you have more than one blog? If so, tell me about them!

I only have 1 blog: Frugal Fanatic

How long have you been blogging?

I have been blogging for about 2 months now.

Why did you start blogging? Is this also why you continue blogging?

I started blogging because I wanted to be able to share with others the sales and deals that I was finding and teach them how to save money.

Who does your blog appeal to? Is this who you thought would be your target audience?

My blog appeals to anyone who is trying to save money on there grocery bills as well as find good deals and free samples.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?

My biggest challenege so far with my blog is finding enough time in the day. I have an 18month old and a 4 month old so it is hard to find the time in the day to post everything that I want. I absolutely love sharing great deals and “how to’s” with my fans. I also love the people that I am meeting through my blog.

What do you love about blogging?

That I can share my feelings while helping others.

What types of product reviews and giveaways do you feature?

I currently have a product review giveaway for Sewplicity’s hand-made wipes holders. (it’s over now, but stay tuned..she has some great stuff coming!!). This is my first review. I am waiting to receieve another one in the mail sometime

Besides your blog, how else can people find you? Which method is your favorite/least favorite?

I find myself using Facebook the most. I have been meaning to set up a LinkedIn account, but havent gotten around to doing it yet. {I definitely know how this feels. I’m on LinkedIn, but have no idea what to do with it!}

Do you have any bloggers that you consider to be mentors?

Some bloggers that I would consider to be mentors would be Sisters Shopping on a Shoestring, Adventures in Coupons and Angie’s Angel Help Network.

What is your best advice for a Newbie Blogger?

Just be yourself. Dont try to do what other pages are doing.

I want to thank Addi so much for taking the time to answer my questions and let us get to know her better!! Let’s all give her virtual hugs and support her in this blogging journey!!

Would you like to be next week’s Featured Newbie??!! Join us at the Newbie Blog Hop every week (linky opens at 9pm CST and stays open until midnight on Wednesday) where you will meet lots of really great bloggers and each week I will choose a blog with to feature!!

I want to wish you all a wonderful weekend!!!
