I have a few miscellaneous things to tell you today.
Outside the U.S.? We want to meet you!
We’ve had a lot of age diversity in our Meet a Reader features so far, but I think everyone I interviewed so far hails from America.
I know that there are plenty of you who live in other countries too, and I know other readers would love to read an interview with some non-Americans.
We’d love to see what frugality looks like around the globe!
If you live outside the U.S. and you’d like to answer a few questions and send in some photos, please let me know. You can leave a comment on this post or you can send me an email.
And of course, I’m happy to feature more U.S.-based readers as well; let me know if you’d like to participate.
As always, you can share as much or as little info as you like, and while we do love to see reader’s faces, several interviewees have chosen to stay anonymous, and that’s totally fine too.
You can nominate my blog for an award from Plutus
Plutus is a little like the Oscars, but for personal finance blogs. I don’t even know what I get if I win, but they let me know that I can share a link for you guys to nominate me.
I tried a homemade chia drink recipe
Lisey loves those Mamma Chia bottled drinks, so I wanted to try making a version at home.
I tried this recipe with some cran-grape juice we had. Super easy, very similar to the Mamma Chia drinks, and way, way cheaper!
(I did not add any maple syrup to my drink.)
Yesterday was my blog’s birthday
I started The Frugal Girl on July 4th, 2008.
(Why did I start my blog on the 4th of July? I have no idea!)
My blog’s birthday always gets a little overshadowed by my country’s birthday (rude, U.S.A.!), but hey, I’ve been typing here for 13 years now.
And some of you have been reading here for 13 years too.
Thank you for making this community what it is; I am so thankful that you all are here!
