This isn’t a post I ever expected to write. When I told you what happened to Coupons, Deals and More back in March, I thought that, except for transferring over the good library content to Ann’s Entitled Life, that was the end of Coupons, Deals and More.
Little did I know…
The government threw me a curve last week and approved my trademark for Coupons, Deals and More. This was a process I began long before Coupons, Deals and More died so suddenly in February. After approval notification, my attorney advised me to bring back the Coupons, Deals and More webpage, and at the very least make it a static page.
I contemplated that. A static page is no work! I tossed up Coupons, Deals and More in under an hour on Friday and I could have parked the page with a few ads, and been done with it.
Instead, I acquiesced to the hundreds (I think it may actually have been over a thousand) of email I have received the last 10 weeks inquiring about the printable rebate page, and decided to return the Printable Rebate Forms page to working order. I haven’t quite completed posting all the information I have for the page, but plan to finish the task this week.
I will probably post a deal per day just to make the spiders and bots happy, but nothing more. You see, I’ve been very happy not deal-blogging the last few months. I have had time to do whatever I want! I haven’t had to worry about writing up any drugstores, grocery stores, or best deals. My blogging life has consisted of looking for laughs for today, posting an old library post , recipe and chit-chatting about my life! All enjoyable tasks, none of which requires me to work more than 40 hours a week.
While I love to help people, I have been stunned at how much I have missed the little things in my day to day life, how little I enjoyed deal-blogging, and how much I enjoy writing. While I may have suspected all of those, I now have confirmation.
So while Coupons, Deals and More is indeed “back”, it is never, ever going to be what it once was. I no longer have that passion. And, it takes real dedication and passion to teach people how to find deals. Ann’s Entitled Life is now my blogging home – Coupons, Deals and More is my home away from home.
