Can you believe I’m heading into my fifth year of blogging as Canadian Cheapo? It’s fun for me to read my early posts and especially my first post to see where my head was. I used to focus solely on shopping and the blog was titled “Canadian Cheapo’s Shopping Adventures”. My shopping habits have changed quite a bit and so has my life, which has become evident in my blogging.
The past year was a busy one for me and if something had to give, it was blogging. I honestly considered giving it up entirely but when I was contacted to blog about eyeglasses, I changed my mind. In fact, I was inspired to re-evaluate my website and now I plan to write and post more than ever before. Over the years, I was reluctant about publishing posts that I felt weren’t polished enough and as a result, I have a huge number of unpublished drafts. This is the year that I will finally release some of those drafts, in their original form and back-dated to their intended posting dates.
It’s taken me a long time to learn that you shouldn’t squeeze a nickel until the beaver farts. While it’s important to save money, it’s equally important to enjoy life. On that note, I have changed my tagline from “Helping Canadians save money, one dollar at a time”, to “Living the high life, at the lowest price”. To all my readers and followers, thank you for your loyalty and joining me on my blogging journey.
