Reader Input: Thoughts About My Blog


Sale Poster image

My apologies if this image offends. I thought it was hilarious!

Recently I had a few people ask me why I don’t post all the deals going on at stores we all shop at, both online and around town. Yes, I have Saving in my blog name. I love to save and I love to talk about saving. When I started this site it was mainly to share the grocery and drug store deals that I was already sharing with friends and family. A few times a week I’d let them know about a great coupon code or other deal going on. But, in general, I would direct them to other sites that focused on posting deals all day.

I knew I couldn’t compete with their 85 posts a day. I homeschool and work part-time, in addition to blogging. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all. And, honestly, I feel bad if I post a few deals because I don’t want people buying stuff they don’t want just because it’s on sale. Then again, I’m not a mind reader (although I pretend to be one!).

Occasionally I will post deals when I think they’re terrific and are for product or services that I would use or have used. But I’d like for you to let me know if you’re OK with me posting some deals on things like cute shoes, great kids’ clothes, games and books, household items or even beauty products. I know I’ve posted the deals (where you can get a 70% savings using the code PLATE now thru 5/24!) and you liked that. So just let me know if you’re cool with me posting some deals and I’ll share some great sales with you. Sound good?

I save a ton of money on things I need. I want you to be able to do the same. If you’re fine with me posting a few extra deals a week, I’ll definitely do that. Seriously, there are some amazing deals on these interwebz! You can leave a comment or tweet at me, send me a message or even post something on my Facebook page. I’d love to hear from you.

Thank you for coming to my blog and sharing my passion for figuring out how to live life fully!

i’d much prefer you post just the deals you’d actually do yourself. i see so many deal blogs get really spammy really fast and then i have to unsubscribe because they’re clogging up my google reader with 50 scammy posts a day. your unique and original writing is what i come for anyway, not the deals (and i think this is essentially the same thing you said to me)

Thank you for your input. I’ll never be one of those posting a bazillion deals but I appreciate you letting me know that you’re ok with me sharing some things.
