Blog Spotlight | Thrifty and Frugal Living

I am running a feature spotlighting other Review & Giveaway Blogs. If you have one and would like to be featured, please email me at [email protected]

 

Today I would like to welcome Crystal from Thrifty and Frugal Living. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…


Please tell me about yourself. 

I am a 26 year old married Pharmacy Technician who is aspiring to become a Pharmacist. I have my Associate of Arts and I often get involved in side projects/jobs (mystery shopping, this blog, volunteering, etc). I love my husband, my chihuahua, music and life in general.

Please tell me about your blog. 

My blog is full of freebies, deals and anything that has to do with saving money. I occasionally post tips and resources for bloggers and I also do a lot of product reviews and giveaways.

How long have you been blogging? 

a few months

How did you get started? 

I told my husband I was spending so much time entering giveaways on blogs and applying for freebies that I should just start my own blog. He said to go for it & I did! I obtained my own domain and started typing.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog? 

All types. I have been doing a lot of beauty products, books and food/drinks recently

What was your favourite giveaway? 


I love them all! Orglamix Eyeshadow was my most popular and definitely a favorite!

Who does your blog appeal to? 

Anyone that wants to get free things or save money, but it does lean more towards females.

What direction do you see your blog going in the future? 

More, More, More. More reviews, giveaways, freebies and followers.

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

I had to figure out how to publish using blogger on my own domain. It can be a little difficult when you first start out.

What do you love about blogging? 

All of the comments and interactions with readers and other bloggers.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve? 

Captcha’s! I hate them and don’t use them.

Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers? 

Yes! Enter as much as possible and tweet like crazy! I did a post on this here: http://www.thriftyandfrugalliving.com/2010/01/giveaways-what-i-have-won-and-how-you.html
