You’re going to think I’m crazy, but I have an announcement to make. I have started another blog. Yes, another one. It’s different than The Thrifty Couple. But don’t think this site is going away as The Thrifty Couple is still my baby; I live, breathe and blog about the things here everyday because it’s our lives, it’s how we live, it’s just what we do day in and day out and we love it.
But I have more hobbies and interests other than just trying to be frugal and trying to be the best manager of the money we have been given that I can be.
And I have enjoyed these interests with dear friends who share similar passions. And in conversations with my friends about our similar passions, knowledge and interests…we decided that we should write about it.
- Because I love blogging.
- Because blogging is an effective way to share your passions with others across the globe that share in your passions too.
- Because blogging connects you with others that enjoy your interests that want to simultaneously glean more information from your knowledge of the topic while we glean information from them when they engage with us.
- Because starting a blog is cheap and easy and completely makes sense.
- Because blogging can turn a passion into a business without the expense landing on our readers, but the advertisers pay us for writing.
- Plus there are so many benefits and opportunities for a blogger to share their passions that if there is anything, anything at all that you care about and want to share – you should do it by blogging.
It’s a win-win for all!
So what is this passion? Travel. Yes, travel. But not just any travel (although I think I would rarely turn down a travel opportunity) but specifically family travel, fun travel, and even more so theme park travel (I am a thrillist). We love the outdoors and the mountains, but we also love Disneyland and all the theme parks we can get.
And so my passion has been turned into a blog and I am having a blast writing about my travel adventures, advice, tips, frugal and money-saving travel hacks and more when it comes to Disney and other theme parks at my new site: MousekeMoms.com!
Here on The Thrifty Couple, I co-blog and co-author with my husband and business partner. On MousekeMoms.com, I co-blog and co-author with my best friend, one I have known for a very long time – Kiz. She’s helped me here on The Thrifty Couple behind the scenes when I have needed it. And now we are business partners for an absolutely fun job in another area of life.
Blogging is the ultimate dream job for moms! We get to stay home with our babies and earn extra income and share our passions! I am excited about this adventure with her and hope you will join me on the other side of Cassie – the travel enthusiast!
And yes, you can be frugal and be a travel enthusiast at the same time. Since travel has always been one of my passions, it has been a big driving force behind learning to be thrifty and why I continue to be as thrifty as I can be even being debt-free for 7+ years. Being debt-free and being thrifty means more travel adventures…all on a budget. 🙂
