Mission Statement

In the last year or so, the number of “deal/frugal bloggers” has exploded exponentially!  I started Atlanta’s Frugal Mom as a means to share my money-saving strategies with my continuously growing reader base.

However, as happens, life seems to slow down the pace of the blog.  The idea of AFM was born shortly after my daughter was born, and became a reality about a year thereafter.  In the meantime, -well- life continued to happen.  I started teaching preschool, and then found out our cozy family of three would be expanding, along with my waistline.  ;o)  With pregnancy and then the birth of my son, the blog simply had to take a backseat.

While I feel like I’ve learned much about myself and about blogging in the process, as well as met many incredible bloggers -many of whom I am now proud to call my friends- I feel like I fell behind the times a bit, so to speak.  I’ve given careful consideration to the direction AFM needs to take, in order to continue to stay relevant in a world over-saturated with deal/coupon blogs.  I have no intention of discontinuing what I’ve been doing, on the contrary!

I do, however, plan to shift my focus slightly.  There are, after all, three components to Atlanta’s Frugal Mom:

  1. Atlanta — events and opportunities in and around the metro Atlanta area;
  2. Frugal – frugal living, including but not limited to, coupons and money-saving advice and deals;
  3. Mom – parenting advice, “frugal parenting”, little nuggets of sage wisdom (hee hee!), and my own observations, lamentations, and curiosities relating to being a mom.
Up until now, my focus has been on the Frugal portion of the blog, with “Atlanta” coming in at a close second.  However, the “mom” component simply can’t be ignored.  With that, I bring to you “Wordless Wednesdays“, where I share little glimpses in to my life as a mother, rich with sweet little red-headed morsels of cuteness. As well as my “Frugal Parenting” pieces — which serve as quick little snippets of ideas to take and use as you see fit.  (And if you see anything Pinterest-worthy, by all means “pin” away!)

In addition to shifting my focus, I am rather excited to get to start bringing you all many giveaway opportunities, as they become available to me.  With my “bloggers circle” expanding, comes more networking, which has opened many new doors for me.   I have partiicpated in quite a few giveaways within the last six months — some being fantastic opportunities, other -eh- not so great.  But with each experience comes new lessons and ideas, and I learn to be a bit more discerning about with whom I choose to work.

I digress.  My mission statement is shifting, as I alluded to earlier.  I will always continue to bring my readers great deals, but I must also focus on the other two pieces: Atlanta and parenting.  After all, I would not be who I am if I was just “frugal”.  :o)

Keep on saving!  :o)
