Featured Blogger Friday(4/30)-Frugal Plus

I know that I haven't done a Featured Blogger Friday post in some time now and I do apologize for that!!

Just a little under one week to go until I'm done with school completely :)

Today I bring you an exceptional lady named Jill-you may know her from her successful frugal-living blog, Frugal Plus.

Please welcome her to The Element and enjoy her interview!

Q. What’s your name and blog? What other information would you like to share?

Jill @ Frugal Plus

I've had the "Savings Bug" for as long as I can remember. Being a WAHM with several Kiddo's in the house, it really does add up and I get a Great Satisfaction out of getting the best deal possible! I enjoy sharing these Savings with my readers, and I have the extreme pleasure of getting them "addicted" as well LOL :)

Q. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

I knew that I would post more than just coupon savings, so I wanted to add that "Plus" in there for all the other exciting entries, such as the reviews, giveaways and freebies.

Q. Why did you start blogging?

I had posted on message boards for several years sharing freebies & coupons, and a friend of mine approached me and asked if I wanted to to start a blog together as we have many of the same interests. I said "Of Course!" and that is how it all started. Since then, she has started her own blog and is also successful!

Q. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

I post entries on printable coupons, coupon codes, deals & offers, along with those fabulous freebies! I also luv doing reviews and sharing those findings with others. I've been lucky enough to get several review offers a week. I also post other sweepstakes from around the net that look to be an awesome win.

I also have a passion for reading along with the rest of my family, and that is reflected on my blog with on-going book reviews and giveaways.

Q. What is one must read post that you have written {Include Link}?

One must read? Hmmmm... I don't think I could pick just one. My favorites are the printable coupons that I can use In-Store (we never go out to eat without a coupon in hand and/or take advantage of Kids Eat Free nights)

Q. Name one thing you love about your blogging job.

I do have a lot of Fun blogging! I've made several new friends since becoming a blogger, and it's interesting to take a peek inside their lives through their blogs or through their personal emails.

Q. Name one thing you’re not quite fond of about your blogging job.

Some weeks I do feel overwhelmed with what I need to get done. I've learned to take a step back and always put family first; the other things can and do wait.

Q. What’s one random fact about you?

I grew up in the Midwest and do miss the slower paced country lifestyle. I grew up driving where everyone was friendly and waved at you, and you knew your neighbors. For the past 26 years I've lived in a huge metro California city and they may wave during rush hour traffic, but it's not the kinda wave you want LOL.

Q. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

I get several emails and/or comments saying, "Thank You" from readers that have taken advantage of some of the savings, have purchased a product because of my review on it, or have won a giveaway and are truly grateful for the time and work I spend putting into Frugal Plus. It always puts a smile on my face :)

I have to put a shout-out to my wonderful husband as well, he's always supported anything that I've wanted to do and is there for me always, cheering me on.

Q. Where else can we find you(Personal Website, Etsy Shop, Twitter, Facebook, Etc.)?

I have two accounts on Twitter Coupons4Me which for whatever reason, I end up being on the most, and of course my blog account, FrugalPlus

On Facebook you can 'Like Me' on my Frugal Plus page and my own personal page
