First Thoughts of This Course

I was in a few Facebook groups with the creator of this course, Mike Pearson, which is initially what led me to check into the class. He was offering the class to beta testers and I did not sign up at this low price.

Yet, after the beta testers were giving his class raving reviews, I knew I had to take action. At the time, Mike only opened this class up a few times per year and I didn’t want to miss it the second time around.

Most were saying this class is, and I quote, “pure gold.”


Blog by Number Review: Is it Worth It? A Comprehensive Guide

Starting a blog can be difficult, especially if you are trying to do it alone.


I started my first blog by myself and literally had NO idea what I was doing. It was extremely overwhelming and I spent countless hours reading posts and searching for answers online only to have something change in blogging and have to relearn how to do something or even worse, learn how to set things up wrong. It was frustrating.

My Blogging Journey


I decided to leave my teaching career of 13 years after having my first son. I felt passionate about being with him in his younger years, instead of putting him in daycare (which we did for about four months and he got really sick and it was a disaster.)

Anyway, while I was being a stay-at-home mom, I decided I wanted a way to express myself and have something just for me. I decided to start a frugal living blog since I love saving money and enjoy writing.

Needless to say, I had no clue what I was doing and I decided to just wing it. Although this may have been fine back in 2016 when you could get tons of Pinterest traffic, blogging has gotten harder and more competitive in 2022. And Pinterest doesn’t just give you free traffic like it used to.

After realizing I loved blogging and I was doing okay with my first bog, I decided to start two more blogs in the area of personal development. Yet, this time, I wanted to make sure I set up my blog correctly instead of just winging it and fixing a bunch of costly mistakes later (like putting the dates in my URL’s -seriously don’t do it!)

I also had a second child and things were getting hectic, so I didn’t have time to keep messing things up and fixing them later. I wanted it done right the first time.

Also, I had two young kids at the time, and I didn’t have time to waste reading the wrong thing or listening to the wrong people.

That is why I wished I would have stopped being frugal with my business (HA! My blog is I Heart Frugal! – so of course, I was trying to save money on blogging!)

I quickly realized being frugal with your business is not a smart business decision. And the time I wasted on reading the wrong things and listening to the wrong people, I will never get back. If I could go back, I would have bought a comprehensive beginner blogging course from a trusted person and called it a day.

Why I Started a Frugal Living Blog

Why I Started A Frugal Living Blog – My Story

Reading through my posts, it occurred to me that I haven’t given you, my readers, much information as to why I chose to start a frugal living blog.  I’ve been posting my recipes, deals, and tips, but before I go on… Let me tell you a bit more about myself!! Update: I now have a Self-Care blog too! You can check it out here.

Why I Started a Blog!
Why I Started a Blog!

Since I was young, I have always had an interest in writing.  I aspire to write a book one day. (As I continue to research blogging, I’m finding it is possible with an e-book). I know I am not the best writer out there, but I enjoy it, so that is good enough for me – and hopefully you too 😀.

I have also enjoyed writing in journals throughout the last few decades of my life. Writing is so therapeutic and relaxing.  It feels good to put those words on paper!
