I've been "deal-blogging" for a long time now. Thanks to all of you who have been reading my blog since the very beginning and to those of you who may have just recently found me!
Deal-blogging is a time consuming endeavor, as many of you may know well since you are also deal blogging! When I began blogging there weren't a whole lot of others like me and I felt like I was doing something really important - helping others spend their money wisely, save their money, and be good stewards with what they were given. Blogging to me felt like a mission or even a calling. Especially in the beginning there was no glory for spending hours finding the deals and posting them for others, and that was okay!
Now, there is a deal-blog "on every corner" and posting the deals feels redundant. There are so many great ones out there and many of which are doing a much better job than I am! My first thought was to just leave blogging gracefully and hang it up all together. But, alas, God had different plans - as He often does.
Now don't get me wrong, I still like to get a great deal just as much as the next frugal mama. I still use coupons (fervently) and I am still trying to be the best steward with what God has blessed me with. However, my life has taken a new path, and I have a new passion. And, after much thought and prayer I have decided to discontinue this blog and begin a new endeavor - a new blog.
This new blog is called Wholesome Mommy and it is in line with what is happening in my own life - wholesome living, wholesome cooking and eating, and wholesome fun. I've enjoyed being a part time stay at home mom and researching new ways to feed my family the best food for our bodies as cheaply as I can - including more whole foods and some organic foods. You have seen some of my thoughts about this on this blog in my posts called "Organic on a Budget." You can continue to read these articles on Wholesome Mommy under the title,"My Whole Food Journey." My mission is to prove that anyone can eat a wholesome and even organic diet on a modest budget.
I'll also continue to post my menu plan each week with links to my meal plan form if you want to use it! Many of you have requested recipes from my meal plan and I am happy to announce that those recipes will be available (and some already are) on Wholesome Mommy.com
In addition to all this talk about food I'll be posting about other ways my family is living a "wholesome" life. In other words, I'll be sharing information about how my family is learning to raise a family like they used to in the "good 'ol days." We're spending more time on each other, rather than money, and having a ball doing it! We're also learning to live a little greener all the while. Living frugally and green go hand in hand you know?!
I hope you'll join me on my knew blog. I'd love to stay connected with my readers. And, with Wholesome Mommy I'll be able to spend more time on the things I really love - including spending time chatting with my readers, one of the things I have missed the most about running The "Cents"ible Sawyer. To make it easier for you to join me I have already redirected my feed from this blog to the new blog. So, if you were already signed up to receive feed from The "Cent"sible Sawyer you'll automatically receive feed from Wholesome Mommy.com. If you don't want to recieve feed from Wholesome Mommy (I hope you'll at least check it out and give me a chance) you can easily delete me from your feed. This will take effect in about a week, giving everyone a chance to read this note! So, be sure to check Wholesome Mommy.com out in the mean time!
I hope you'll hurry over to check out Wholesome Mommy.com and let me know what you think! I can't wait to get the conversation going! =)
