"I use Blogger. I've used in the past and I have way more readers through my Blogger blog. I guess if I was to switch to .org I'd probably get even more, but I'm pretty happy where I am at right now."

Profile Information

What is your blog name?
Thrifty Livin
What is your blog URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a married mom of two. I just graduated from college with a degree in education but I can't find a job because the economy is in the crapper. I am a tightwad who hates to pay full price for anything.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I attempt to share my ideas regarding saving money and being thrifty with a fair amount of humor. I share current deals and coupons along with the store match-ups for each week. I also feature reader brags to show how much others are saving. I hope that as I gain more readers my blog will become more interactive with my readers posting their own ideas.
I have been blogging since...

Greetings from the Tampa Bay :) My name is Lea, and I am the author of Mother Baby Child - I started this blog to share my experience in having a baby just before my 1st son was about to turn 18 years old, as well as what life is like as a married mom after being single for so many years. I also blog about Christianity, baby and child stages, homeschooling, ADHD, Autism, Blog Marketing, etc. I share a lot on that blog during the non-summer seasons.

I also have a new healthy lifestyle choices and weight loss blog - - to accompany my Skinny Body business. I am working hard to complete the design of this new blog, so that I can provide valuable health lifestyle and weight loss information, as well as to share a solid opportunity for moms that want / need to make money by working at home.

I invite you to explore my blogs and provide your feedback.

I have GFC and my network links on both of them.

Now that my baby is older, I have more time to meet the moms. I am really excited about this!

I look forward to reading your blog and networking with you here at MBC :)

Hugs & Blessings!
