It is time to renew my domains for Coastal Couponer. I haven’t posted in so long because life got in the way. Yes, I still use coupons and other methods to save money. Yes, I’ve spoken at seminars and training sessions to help others. Yes, I am always thinking about things I should be posting. Is my heart really into it anymore?

I wrestled with that question for some time. The answer was clear.

I have a full time job that I love but it’s been a tough year. I realized that all of the struggles I put myself through getting my degree really haven’t given me the best return on investment. Knowing I can not afford to get my master’s degree always sat in the back of my mind but I pushed on and studied on my own to learn as much as I could. I’ve paid for certifications with my own money. Still, the opportunity for growth and development with the organization I’ve worked for the last ten years never came. This situation caused me to see clearly that I am not finished with this blog.

I’ve pulled away from trying to prove my worth to my employer and frankly, it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made. My work ethic hasn’t changed. I was hired to do a job and I will continue to do it well. What I will not continue to do is give away my free time in hopes that one day someone will notice.

My plan is simple. I renewed my domain today. I want to do more of what I love.
