One year ago today I set up shop on Facebook as The Bargain Sleuth as a way to stop annoying my Facebook friends who didn’t live in the Green Bay area with the deals I was posting.  What a year it has been!

Thank you so much Colleen Dunkel, for my awesome logo.  A few months after I started the Facebook page, I finally got around to getting my own logo (remember the picture of the baby in diapers with the Sherlock hat and magnifying glass?)  I LOVE The Bargain Sleuth logo and hopefully when people think of me, they think of her very cool logo design.

I certainly never thought this many people would find out about my little blog, the Little Engine that Could, picking up a few fans each week thanks to old-fashioned word-of-mouth.  Thank you to my fans for telling friends and family about The Bargain Sleuth, it shows that you think enough of what I post to tell others.  I really do appreciate it.  And I’ll keep doing my best to bring you the best of the best deals I see in the Green Bay area, mixed in with all the exceptional online deals I see, too.

And thanks to all the great “family” of bloggers I’ve gotten to “meet”: Shelly, Carrie, Jon, Jason, Mike & Lisa, Rose, Jill, Rita, Mary Jo and more. Thanks for the help, the ideas, and most importantly, the deals you send my way. :-) 

As I’ve mentioned before, with the first anniversary of my fifth “baby”, there are going to be some major changes, so stay tuned to see what’s in store!
