PostHeaderIcon Blog Spotlight: 10 Questions With Nicki of Domestic Cents.com


Article Source: Online Shopping Store

I am proud to start a new feature on my blog. Every week, I am going to spotlight a new blog that I think is terrific and interview the founder. Should be fun! Proud to start this feature with my blogging buddy Nicki from Domestic Cents.com. Please E-Mail me if you are interested in being interviewed and having your blog featured!

10 Questions With Nicki of Domestic Cents.com

1. Describe your blog in 5 sentences or less?
~ Domestic Cents is a blog about my personal journey in living frugal. I use domestic arts such as cooking from scratch, sewing and gardening to make a better life for my family while continuing to keep spending and “consumerism” at a minimum.

2. What makes your blog different from all the rest?
~ Probably not much :) I think the main thing that differentiates any blog is the “voice” behind it. I’ve been writing it for a while so I think people have started to get to know me. One thing my readers love is my “Why I do what I do” feature. At the footer of every post I share a little story or funny fact about my daughter.

3. What would I be surprised to find in your refrigerator right now?
~ I don’t think there’s anything all that surprising in there. :-) There’s some leftover birthday cake. We always have sweet gherkins pickles in there – a favorite around here.

4. If you were deserted on a desert island and could pick one music CD to bring, what would it be? (assuming you had a CD player and electricity )
~ A CD is tough. I’d be better off picking a playlist from my Ipod :) If I had to pick a CD – anything Hillsong United would work.

5. When and why did you first start blogging?
~ October 2008. I hadn’t been a stay-at-home mom all that long and I was still figuring out how we were going to make it. I was constantly looking for areas where I could cut back. Blogging seemed like a good way to keep motivated and share my ideas with others.

6. What post on your blog best depicts the essence of you?
~ One of the most popular posts on my blog is My Daughter Won’t Remember We Were Broke. It’s over 2 years old but has gotten the most attention. I think it accurately portrays where we are as a family. Even though it’s not a current post and things have changed a little for us (Chloe is 5 now and about to enter Kindergarten) – I still believe and stand by every word in that post.

7. What blog or website influenced you the most when you started?
~ I was a big Simple Mom and Small Notebook reader back when I first started.

8. Who would play you in a movie about your life, and why?
~ Ummm … maybe Reese Witherspoon? She’s the first person that comes to mind because she’s around the same size as me and a little fun and firey. Years ago – I used to wear my hair like she had it in “Sweet Home Alabama.”

9. When it comes to blogging, what is your biggest pet peeve?
~ People snatching my content without giving credit. Every now and then a reader will email me and say they found a word-for-word portion of one of my posts somewhere else. It’s not uncommon. That’s not cool.

10. What is your favorite breakfast cereal and why?
~ I’m not much of a cereal eater because I’m lactose intolerant. However, every now and then I’ll take a Lactaid pill and indulge in a bowl – usually at night. When I do – it’s Frosted Flakes or something else that’s ridiculously terrible for me.

Thanks Nicki, great answers! I can really relate to #9, once I had a person copy my exact site and claim it as their own. They finally took it down but I almost had to hire a lawyer. Amazing what some people think they can get away with. And as father of 3 young kids, her post from question #6 gave me a lump in my throat. What a beautiful and honest post. Now, go check out her blog, I think you will really get a lot out of it. Remember to E-Mail me if you are interested in being interviewed and having your blog featured.
