I started this blog to help people, from the looks of my stats, I have failed miserably at reaching people.  I am wondering if this is worth my while.

  1. I just discovered your blog today researching how to make food stamps stretch after reading an article about hungry children. I think it is wonderful that you are doing this with a heart to help people. I can link you on a site on facebook that might get you some more traffic as you are giving out lots of good ideas for saving money. I do think there are a lot of people that need to be taken to the grocery store to teach them how to shop and that there should be classes for anyone who gets food stamps on budgeting, meal planning and how to cook from scratch. I pray that you are blessed because of what you are doing here. I didn't find where you were criticized for spelling errors, but just forget people like that. They have a problem if they are so nitpicky. I know it is hard to type from a reader as I use my kindle sometimes for getting online and think it is a lot more difficult that my computer. Anyway, I hope you will be encouraged and thank you for your heart to share what you have learned to help others.

  2. Your traffic should be improving. I put your site on War On Debt Meal Ideas on Facebook and I also pinned you on Pinterest. I got one comment to my post so far on War on Debt and am pasting it here so you can have the encouragement since I don't know if you would see it or not.
    From Sue Sharp Aaron - "Jane, keep up the good work, showing people it can be done. The stores that you have are not available in my part of the country, but people will find you that do use those stores. Maybe put up something at the stores telling what you do."
    You could also post what you do an a local community online bulletin board. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Serena. I really appreciate it.
