Twitter is one of the most useful social media tools for bloggers and businesses alike to use to connect with others, share ideas and network among other things. I joined twitter over a year ago and have made many connections both on a personal and professional level. Today one of those connections brought me the opportunity to have my ideas published as a special guest portion of a post about money-saving tips for the frugal family.
A couple of days ago I was going about my daily twitter check when I came across a conversation about an article about how expensive it is to raise children, in particular speaking about how a baby from 0-1 year can cost up to if not more than 10,000$. I of course voiced my opinion about that particular subject stating it is possible to raise a baby from age 0-1 on a budget less than 10,000$. Before I know it I was in a conversation with @mel_coulson about how exactly we save on some of the costs of raising our kids and she asked me if I would participate in a post she was publishing to her blog “Adventures of a working mom” on the Ottawa citizen website.
Of course I accepted the offer, living in Ottawa, this is a great honour having my input published on such a reputable website like the Ottawa citizen! This afternoon certainly made up for the events of this morning.
It’s my first guest post and I was actually expecting an email back after sending it saying something was wrong with it, that’s the pessimistic critic inside me. I need to trade her in for a positive thinking critic! All joking aside, it was fun participating in this and working with Miss Coulson. An opportunity I couldn’t pass up helping out a fellow blogger and giving moms everywhere great money-saving tips!
Without further adieu here is the post itself, please feel free to leave any feedback (please, be nice.) or money-saving tips of your own!
Until next time…keep dreaming always…
