In a world where changes and updates in the realm of technology seem to be moving faster than the speed of light and more companies are utilizing blogs, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking outlets to expand their marketing reach, I decided it was about time to hop on the “bandwagon” for a bit (if only) just to see where it takes me. This is not entirely new to me as I have maintained a personal journal on http://www.opendiary.com consistently since about 2000 but the purpose of this blog errs on the side of being opinionated versus emotional.
In March of 2011 I developed a deep appreciation for coupons, giveaways and any other means of saving possible which has resulted in saving more than $1200 (in coupons alone) and a realistic (key word) stockpile of products totaling entirely more than that. Growing up I had a very strong example set of type of lifestyle thanks to my mom who couponed her way to many family vacations and other extras while my dad finished up law school. She taught me that even if you don’t necessarily need to coupon or seek out sales that nobody can afford not to save.
This brings me to present day where I have discovered an entire world of ways in which to earn extra money via online surveys, product testing with the expectation of candid reviews, giveaways galore via Facebook and Twitter as well as a close-knit swap group filled with amazing women (all mothers except for myself) that have shown me that generosity is not a dying breed and bonds can be made even if you’ve never exchanged words face to face.
I am not sure where I will go with this blog but I have a feeling that it’s someplace positive. The opportunities are endless but I have faith in this being a great foundation to further project my personal (re)views.
In other words, a Feedback Frenzy!
