Changes at Nicole’s Nickels

by Nicole on September 25, 2012

When I started Nicole’s Nickels in February of 2009 (3 1/2 years ago!) there were not that many deal bloggers and I posted 3 times per day.  Since I work full time outside the house the 3 times per day was all I could do.  Even then I sometimes felt like I was missing a great deal if it happened during the day, but my readers were loyal and I stayed with the 3 posts per day for a long time.

As the economy worsened and Extreme Couponing became everyday verbiage the deal blogging world exploded and I felt  like I needed to post 10, 15, even 20 times per day to keep up.  I hired an assistant, then two, and felt like I was never caught up.  The funny thing is that I recently realized that you, the readers, didn’t seem to care if I posted 3 times per day or 20.  You stayed loyal and came back to see what I had to say.  And I thank you for that.

So it’s time for Nicole’s Nickels to change.  I’m moving away from posting coupons and deals and towards posting brand info, reviews, giveaways, recipes, travel info, and the occasional great deal.  You’ll read more stories about my family and my experiences.  These are the posts you all comment on anyway and I have the most traffic on.  I’ll probably be posting 3 times per day and you’ll get to know my assistant Pennie as well.  Pennie will introduce herself in a post this week – I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading what she has to say!

If you’re looking for a deal/coupon blog with 20 posts per day Nicole’s Nickels is no longer the place for you.  If you send me an email I’m happy to refer you to some of my blogging friends who fit the bill for that.  You’ll notice my tagline has now changed to “Always giving you more than my 2 cents” which is a play off the Nickels in my blog name.  My navigation bar is updated to show you the kinds of things I will be blogging about.  If you’re looking for older posts they can be found under the “deals” tab.   You can still expect a review or giveaway every day and I’ll continue my brand work as ambassador for several companies.  I’ll also give you some recipes, Top 10 Giveaways, Friday Freebies, a Pin of the Week post and much more! I’m open to suggestions so please comment or send me an email if you want me to consider something.

I hope you’ll stick around to check out the new and improved Nicole’s Nickels!

I love your decision…..3 posts a day is great and I would rather read about you, recipes, etc. than a million deals I don’t have the money to pay for anyway! I love that you have Compassion Int’l on your website, we have sponsored two boys from Tanzania for a couple years now and this organization is a real blessing!
God bless,
