The Financial Times
So my wife isn’t one to brag, but she has been featured today in Financial Times, http://www.FT.com
Her blog “A Thrifty Mom” has a write up by Jonathan Birchall titled “Americans embrace cyber moms’ blog bargains” from the New York office of the London based newspaper Financial Times, Jonathan calls his newspaper “like the Wall Street Journal, but based in London, we like to think it’s more fun”. Jonathan found her blog and asked if he could interview her. Of coarse Sarah being a small town dairy farm girl was a bit shocked. She actually did some research on the Financial Times, thinking she just got some spam mail. Come to find out it is a legit and high end news source. So she called him back. His British accent made it a fun conversation. In his article he stated:
“In a sign of the demand, Sarah Barrand, a mother of three who launched A Thrifty Mom in Idaho last month, says she is already averaging 1,000 readers a day. “To be honest, I had no idea what a blog was a year ago,” she says. “But it’s taken off like I would never have imagined.””
She is featured with other bloggers such as Southern Savers, Money Saving Mom, The Frugal Mom, Coupon Cravings, and Stephanie Nelson, the Coupon Mom, who has been featured on Oprah, The Today show, and many other news agencies. These are all very large blogs that do quite well. Sarah said she feels so honored to be included with these fellow bloggers.

A Thrifty Mom made the front cover of the Life section today in our local Idaho newspaper, The Idaho Statesman. I was so nervous today waiting for the paper, so I sent my husband Matt to go buy one!
