Update! Has it really been 4 months??

5 Aug

I cannot…repeat… CANNOT believe it has been 4 months since I have updated this blog.   I miss it. I really do. I miss writing.  My website Sioux Falls Frugal Mom has taken off and it’s becoming very popular among Sioux Falls residents.  I spend quite a bit of my extra time working on that blog and after all of that is done, the thought of writing something truly substantial for this blog is just too much to even think about.

Lately I’ve been reducing the amount of posts I do on SFFM and trying to fit more information into each individual post.  This way I have less work to do and more information, I believe, will reach more people if there are fewer posts to read.  I know of a lot of coupon blogs where they post 10 or more blog posts EACH day.  It’s just too much if you ask me. Not only is it a lot of work for the blogger but it’s just too much for the READER to handle.  I don’t want to sit and read 10 posts when I could read 1 post with all the same info combined into it.  Rather than posting 1 new coupon at a time I will create a post with 10 new coupons.  Granted if there is only one new coupon and I think it may not be available in a few days I will give it its own post but if not…it gets put on the “Coupons to Post” list until I have enough to make a good list of new available coupons. It just makes the most sense and it it benefits the reader by reducing the time they spend on the site.

Along with the reduction of posts has come a lot more free time for me.  My house is actually clean and organized.  I have time to read books and my favorite magazines again. I actually…*gasp*..have time to post on here!

So what’s new in our neck of the woods?

1. Zoe is beginning potty training.  She does best when she decides to go entirely on her own… if I ask her to go, she won’t do it.  In a sense that’s a good thing, but there are other times when I know she has to go but she won’t. She just holds it, then if I have to put a diaper on her (for a nap, an outing, or at night) she’ll go.  She also has no idea what panties are for and would rather have them off.  That’s another problem though that I’ll deal with later on haha.

2. I’m a regular contributing writer for The Hood Magazine now!   The first issue was handed out at Family Fest last weekend. We handed out over 1,000 copies to people.  The official ribbon cutting for the launch of the magazine takes place on the 18th.  My first article was on printable coupons.  I felt that would be a good start because it can help a family save SO much each month and so many people are still afraid to try printable coupons.  Hopefully those that read it will give printable coupons a try 🙂

3.  Gage finished college – graduated from Southeast Tech – and got a job!! He works as a programmer for Rock Hard Systems here in town. They make software for trucking companies.

This blog may or may not stay at this address. I have a feeling I may move it back over to blogger…we’ll see. For now, it is here.

Wow, midnight already. Time for bed! Hopefully I’ll write again soon.
