Newbie Blog Hop – Week 10 (New Stuff!!)

Welcome to Week Ten of

Newbie Blog Hop!!

If this is your first time here,

please read the Rules HERE,
but also know that we’re not rule followers so bend them if you need to!!

We did good last week with 22 blogs linking up up!!

Let’s keep getting the word out!!

Anyone want to have a Twitter Party?!!

What about a Newbie Blog Hop Giveaway Hop?!!

Give me some feedback!!

Just a few NEW things here:

  • I am leaving the linky open through Friday at
    midnight so more people can link up!!
  • The original Newbie Blog Hop page said blogs under 6 months could link up,
    but I really want to open that to blogs under 1 year!!

So…continue to spread the word!! Love you guys!!

Now for the Featured Newbie Blog!!!

This week’s Featured Blog is:

Spending Coupons not Cash!!

Blogger: Melissa

Spending Coupons Not Cash

Because Money doesn’t grow on Trees!!

 Melissa is a mother of two toddlers whose husband is currently serving in the U.S. Navy. She has found it difficult to find a job with all the moving around so she started saving money for her family by using coupons!!

Melissa’s family is currently stationed in Central California and you can all imagine that there it has to be difficult to build a stockpile with fewer stores and no double coupons.

Her goal is to teach her friends and family (and whoever else wants to follow along) how to SPEND MORE MONEY EACH WEEK THAN THEY DO MONEY!!

I could use a little help in that department. I use coupons, but I certainly haven’t reached this point…yet!!

  • If you are new to couponing, check out Melissa’s 7 Steps to Starting!!
  • If you want to help out the military, check out the Christmas Care Packages!!
  • Send your expired coupons to the military overseas!!
  • Who doesn’t love FREEBIES??!!

Check out Melissa at the following places, and don’t forget to say HI!!

  • Spending Coupons Not Cash
  • Twitter

Come back on Friday afternoon for our Interview!!

(Speaking of Friday, have you heard about my Fatty Friday linkup??!!)

Do you want to be Next Week’s Featured Blog??!!

Link up whatever page you want: blog, facebook, twitter, favorite post…

This Hop is NOT strict, just FUN!!!!

Please be courteous and go visit your fellow Newbies out there!!

Block Party Hop Wednesday!!

Each week they pick a follow method and hop around to each others’ blogs. Last week was Twitter and this week is EMAIL!!

**if you haven’t ever joined a Hop and are not sure how to navigate the Linky tool to get your name/blog on their, send me an email or use my Contact Form!!

P.S. If you are on Blogger, sometimes Blogger hates me and I have trouble entering a comment so if I haven’t commented on your site, it is NOT because I don’t want to!!! I always keep trying so hopefully you’ll hear from me soon!!!

PPS. What type of Newbie questions do people have??!! I can start a weekly New Tip for Newbies each week on this Hop!!
