Bloggers seem to be a shy lot. After an initial five “Meet the Bloggers” articles getting others involved has been a tough gig. Thankfully we managed to cajole another
victim willing participant into sharing their blog and various other secrets with our users.
Up next is a useful site if you’re looking to cut back on your food budget. Is it really possible to be “eating on a pound”?
1. Who Are You And What’s Your Blog?
My name is Sunny Stephens and my blog is Eating On A Pound.
2. What’s Your Blog About?
My blog is about saving money, mainly on food shopping bargains but it does include other thrifty tips too.
3. How/Why Did You Get Into Blogging?
The reason I decided to blog is because I started a thread on Loquax about food shopping bargains and a few people asked me to start doing a blog. I knew nothing about blogs or blogging but another Loquax user Mibsxx offered to help me as she runs her own blog and so the blog was born.
4. What Kind Of Competitions/Prizes Do You Offer Readers?
I have only run one competition so far which was for a food hamper, but I intend to run more, mostly with a foody theme.
5. What Kind Of Response Do You Get?
I had over 600 viewers of the competition and 210 people entered unfortuately only 180 people qualified to be in the draw, because the others did not follow the instructions. I thought I had made it quite easy to enter via a follow and leave a comment route, I might have to have a re-think next time!
6. What Top Tip/Advice Do You Have For Other Bloggers/Wannabe Bloggers?
Write about something you are passionate about! I have a very limited budget and food has gone up so much, if I can help others hunt out bargains like I do that’s great. My blog really is here to try and help people survive in hard times.
7. What Top Tip/Advice Do You Have For Compers?
Keep at it and don’t give up! Even when you have a dry spell!
8. What’s Your Favourite Blog/Site?
Loquax where else and Mibsxx.
9. Strictly or X Factor?
Neither I hate anything like that. In fact I hardly do TV at all (apart from Dr Who). Give me radio 4 extra anytime! In fact I am listening to Titus Groan on the radio as I type.
We’re pleased Sunny decided to take part, especially as the blog originated from a thread on the Loquax Forums and encouragement from another user. So a big thanks to all involved!
You can keep up with Sunny and her money saving tips over at Eating On A Pound.
