One Income Dollar Button

Today I would like to welcome Monique from Stretching the One Income Dollar. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself. 

Divorced mom of 2 girls 17 and 24- have lived 3 years common law to a great guy whom I feel is a soul mate and wish I would have met years back. Now we just make the best of the time we do have left together.
Live in Northern Canada where we see little of nice weather, so I get the travel bug alot.
I love entering online sweepstakes, walking, family time, animals, blogging, reading, travelling, (when money and time permit) and so much more.
Please tell me about your blog.
Stretching the One Income Dollar is about having more, and spending less. Although I like reading other blogs on scrimping and saving, I am not extreme. I still like to enjoy some of the good things life has to offer, such as travelling, going out, etc., but I like doing it all more carefully- I look for bargains, use coupons, and read as much as I can on penny pinching.
How long have you been blogging?
Since August 2009.

How did you get started?
While I was waiting for my book to go to print, I started the blog and continued writing.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I sell the book I wrote: Stretching the One Income Dollar, in both print and an ebook version.

What was your favourite giveaway? 
So far? Hmm- I just started out so I can’t really comment on that as of yet.
Who does your blog appeal to?
Alot- I write about saving money in all areas. I do giveaways, product reviews and get personal too.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
More friends joining in and getting higher in the earch engines as I add more content, do more reviews and giveaways.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Getting more readers/followers, email subscribers.
What do you love about blogging?
I can say what I like and write about anything I like.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway?
 Have fun- enter giveaways with hardly any entries- you stand a good chance of winning!
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
I like anything Canadian as I am Canadian – and also blogs that save money- such as coupon, freebie type sites.
How can people find you?
