Saturday Shout-Out: Budgeting During College

I wanted to use my Saturday posts to highlight some great bloggers out there. This week’s feature blogger is wonderful and I hope you love her as much as I do. If you’d like me to highlight you, just send me an email at asoto0703@gmail.com.

Saturday Shout-Out!

~Name: Marlee

~Blog: Budgeting During College http://marleeindebt.blogspot.com/

~Type of blog: Food and Travel, and Life in general

~A little about myself...I’m a grad student studying to become a nutritional counselor and specialize in helping people with food addiction and overeating disorders. I am living on an EXTREMELY tight budget, but refuse to sacrifice life experiences because of it. So in that case, I’m learning how to live the life I want with the means I don’t have!

~1 wish: There would be no more lost or neglected pets. I’m a sucker for a stray, and I have a HUGE vet bill because of it!

~Favorite thing about where I live: The outdoors and the people. I live in Billings, MT. The people in the entire state of Montana are generally incredibly nice and friendly. There’s just something about that farm/ranch mentality that everyone will drop everything to help you if you need it. People are so giving and selfless here.

~#1 on bucket list: Use my passport, which I am this summer and you can vote to which country I’ll be going to on my Stupid and Crazy blog post here : http://marleeindebt.blogspot.com/2011/05/stupid-and-crazy.html

~3 words to describe you: You Never Know!

~1 little known fact about you: I hate being in one place! After a few days I want to go somewhere else! I’d be up for hitch-hiking across the country if it wasn’t for that whole “getting picked up by a serial killer” thing…

~1 vice of yours: any kind of dough or batter. And I mean ANY. Pancake batter tastes delicious to me for some reason!

~Why did you start blogging?: I was bored! I had 3 weeks off of school and didn’t know what to do with myself with no papers to write or homework to do!

~Favorite thing about blogging: The support. I posted this post, explaining my proudest moment (http://marleeindebt.blogspot.com/2011/05/proudest-moment.html) and so many people wrote in with kind words. That’s something difficult to share, and it made me feel so much better to know I had a little online support group :).

~What do you think makes a successful blog?: Being true to yourself. Write what comes from the heart. Forget about if it’s grammatically correct of if you think other people with be interested in it or not. The blogs I find the most interesting are the ones where people write exactly how they talk, because then it feels like I’m having a conversation with them instead of reading something I’ve heard a thousand times. You are unique, so let that come across in your writing!

~3 words to describe my blog: Sporadic, Relatable, and Funny

~What’s 1 blog (besides yours) that you think everyone should check out?  I would say the blog I kill the most time at is How To Accessorice With Tiny Birds (http://accessorizewithtinybirds.blogspot.com/). It makes me laugh every time, I just think it’s brilliant!
