It is April it means that it is time for the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by my friends Susan and Janice from 5 Minutes to Mom. If you are visiting from the blog party welcome to Common Cents Mom, I am Hollie the owner and creator of this blog, and I want to thank you for popping in.
Join me for a cup of Moroccan tea- it is a mix of green and mint (and my favorite that I start my days with) or perhaps a cupcake and let me share what you will find here at Common Cents Mom.
I am a mom in my 40′s who has been blogging for over 10 years now and it basically started as an online journal, and then I started doing the occasional review and giveaway. I now do a few giveaways each and every month. I live a frugal and fun life, and enjoy sharing it with my readers. I am also the host of the #cdnmoney chat on Twitter each Wednesday night from 7-8 pm EST where we talk about all kinds of money topics.
I am a solo flying single momma with one teen daughter and our passions are music, being creative, cooking and me while I am trying to get healthier and kick some old bad habits but aren’t we all?
You will find I write about frugal living, family life, money, blogging and social media, and even an opinion post every once in awhile. What do you write about?
Now for years I was an avid scrapbooker and well since we have gone to the days of Instagram and SLR’s I found that I love to create books and well since you stopped by to visit I am hosting a special giveaway for my readers this week that even comes with a discount you can all use this weekend.
We love Blurb Books in our family and well one reader well they win a $40 credit to Blurb Books.
