Saturday Featured Blog | Coupons On Caffeine
Welcome to Simply Stacie’s Saturday Featured Blog! If you would like your blog featured, please fill out this form.
Today I would like to welcome Bree from Coupons On Caffeine! I had a chance to learn more about herblog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
I’m a stay at home mom of 2 boys, full time college student, and dabble in a bit of everything! I’m in love with anything active, anything competitive ( this includes shopping!) and making the most of what we have been blessed with.
Please tell me about your blog.
I started Coupons on Caffeine as a way to show others you can live well on less. Paying retail is a thing of the past! Living on a fixed income I’ve found that you can still live lavishly yet frugal. This extends to fashion, crafts, food shopping, home decor and everything in between! Beyond this I also offer product reviews. Sometimes you need to pay a bit more for a high quality item, and if I like it, it’s high quality. I would NEVER recommend someone to purchase something with their hard earned money that I did not believe was worth it!
How did you get started?
I started a few months ago when I had a private blog. I let a friend see it and she was in love and asked me to go public. So I did, and since I have expanded it from just my weekly frugal shopping trips to so much more
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I feature a bit of everything, book reviews, product reviews, thrifty shopping and more. I love sharing new blogs so I also feature a healthy meals thursday and a Feature crafty blogger Wednesday.
What was your favourite giveaway?
Shoedazzle! Hands down I love shoes so being able to share with others was one of my favorite giveaways to be part of! But beyond that almost every giveaway I have done is a product that I feel is one that deserves a bit of exposure because it is a great product.
Who does your blog appeal to?
I believe it goes to anyone who is a bit scattered in their interests. Being a mom does not mean are ONLY interested in kids products, you may like to craft as well, being crafty does not mean you are interested in JUST a craft blog you may find you like to cook as well. I think Woman have a wide range of interests and I try to dabble in a bit of all of them.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
I would love to see it grow to include other bloggers. I love finding new blogs and unique perspectives on issues and would love to start incorporating more guest posters.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
There are so many. I am not computer savvy so this can be an issue, but also blogging does take a bit of time. There are lists of things to do and great ideas to incorporate but there is so little time in the day. Between the boys, homework, household chores and being a new stay at home mom and trying to learn the ropes on that bag of tricks time is something that is always an issue.
What do you love about blogging?
I love comments! I love knowing that someone took the time to read what I wrote and has something to say on the topic. I know that I hit something that others are interested in enough to take the time and leave their 2 cents as well!
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
SPAM comments. Honestly I don’t know one person who likes having the viagra man post about cheap drugs on a post that is completely NOT about that topic!
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
I used to think giveaways were a waste of time, BUT I have won a few amazing prizes and being able to do giveaways I know know that people do win some great things!
My advice to new bloggers, Give an honest review. Even if you do not like the product be as honest as possible about it.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
I love to read the coupon goddess, she is very funny!
I also love the pioneer woman, if you want to drool over some amazing food she has you covered!
