Want To Know Wednesday: Moms Living Thrifty!

Welcome to 24th Edition of "Want To Know Wednesday"! Each week, I will shine the spotlight on a business or blog! It will cover the basic 5 W's and 1 H! Let's get to know Moms Living Thrifty!

Moms Living Thrifty

WHO is the person behind the business? "I'm a mother, stepmother, freelance copywriter and the owner and author of Moms Living Thrifty. I'm also really creative when I want to be, which is why I go by MotherCreative on my blog and on other sites online."

WHAT is the focus of your business? "What?!?! You mean it's supposed to have a focus? Ha! Seriously, my blog is really more of a hodge-podge type of blog. It offers a little bit of everything. I do a lot of coupons, deals, match-ups, product reviews and giveaways. However, I also cover a lot of other topics like cooking, crafts, life, blogging, working at home and even a little bit of mainstream media. It's my own little outlet, so I write about whatever piques my fancy that day."

WHERE do you business? "I work from my home office. Every once in a while, I have the chance to meet my freelance clients, but most of them I never see. It was a weird transition for me because my previous work involved a lot of heavy, in-person customer interaction."

WHEN did you start your business and/or how much time do you devote to it? "I started Moms Living Thrifty on June 30, 2011. I had a rough few months and almost gave it up, but received a lot of encouragement from my fellow bloggers that prompted me to continue. I'm so glad I did. Not only have I made a lot of great friends in the blogger community, but I've learned a lot and I'm actively implementing that knowledge into my site."

WHY did you start your business? "I started my blog as an outlet for me, a place where I could write about what was on my mind. I write for a living, but I've enjoyed it as a hobby since I was a child. Don't get me wrong…I get to work on a lot of fabulous projects, but writing what other people want is a lot different than writing what I want. Starting a blog helped me to bring that enjoyment back."

HOW can people interested in learning more connect with you? "I am on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

  1. I like that her blog has no focus. hehe. Mine doesn't either.  But it turns out when I'm in a public pr situation I get slapped with the name "mom blogger".  Some people say it respectfully, some people giggle, and some roll their eyes.
    Thanks for sharing!
