So I've been writing this little old blog for four years now. Wow, four years!
In that four years alot has changed...
~I went from mostly writing about sales and coupon codes to mostly writing about freebies.
~I changed the blog design several times and finally found one I'll stick with for awhile more.
~I started keeping track of my savings and earnings and posting totals weekly and yearly.
~I moved over from dot blogspot to my own domain.
~I opened a Facebook page for Tips & Treasures.
~I started using Twitter for Tips & Treasures.
~I learned alot about tweaking HTML for my blog.
~I joined Entrecard as a means for free blog advertising.
~And on a more personal note... my daughter was almost 10 months old when I started blogging... and now she'll be 5 years old in March. And my son came along after my first year of blogging, and he turned 3 a week ago!
I've completely enjoyed blogging and being a part of the blogging community. I've found so many blogs that I love reading daily. They keep me in check, focused on my goals, and give me something to strive for.
For the year going forward, I have a few goals for this blog. I discussed some of these before, so sorry if it sounds like a repeat for some of you.
~I want to make this blog more about my personal frugal adventure through life. I've started doing this a bit, and will continue.
~In the near future I'll be posting my debt totals and our goals to pay it off. As well as updates on how we're doing with it.
~This is more for me, but check it out if it interests you. I put a link list on my sidebar (towards the bottom) of the books I've read so far this year. Just want to keep track.
~I'm back to doing my Weekly Recaps of savings & earnings. These numbers are fun to watch add up!
~I want to increase my readers. Who doesn't? lol I've lost alot of my daily readers from taking a blog break at the end of last year. Got to make up for that, get back where I was and move forward.
~Increase Followers... through Google, Twitter and Facebook. Find the links on the sidebar if you're interested! Thanks :)
~Get around and comment on other blogs more often. So many times I read great posts and I don't think to comment, but I know how much it means to the writer, so I'll work on that.
To my longtime readers, thanks for sticking around and following my frugal, money-saving journey. To my newer readers or those just stopping by, thanks for checking out my blog and I hope you find something interesting to bring you back again :)
