How To Navigate TNFM Site and Blog
Thanks for bearing with me as I've changed the look and navigation of TNFM.
Rest assured, TNFM is still operating as a blog run on Blogger (because it's FREE and I am frugal!) and you will still receive new posts in your RSS reader or by email if you are a subscriber. My test post last night landed right in my own Google Reader; if you have any issues receiving new posts, please let me know by email.
Now...onto the changes!
If you visit TNFM directly at the web address (www.TheNewFrugalMom.com), instead of seeing a traditional blog with the latest post at the top, you'll now see a more traditional home page look. I wanted to create more of a "front door" look to the site with quick links to highly trafficked topics as well as a link directly to TNFM Blog.
When you click TNFM Blog, you'll return to the more traditional blog posting look with the same navigation bar, sidebar, and footer that is on the front page. You'll simply be able to scroll through new posts by date.
Why did I make these changes?
I wanted to create a more organized site not just for myself (because - let's face it - I am a bit of an organizational neat freak, lol!) but for new visitors and for you, my faithful readers. Because time is the most valuable resource we have, I want my site to be easily navigable and useful to anyone who is searching for information and resources on couponing, frugal living, menu planning, Kroger, and other topics I cover so you don't waste your time.
Below is a quick overview on subscribing to updates from TNFM and navigating TNFM. I'll be linking this post in the header and footer of the site under the link "SITE MAP" in case you need to refer to it again in the future.
