    Mashallah, What a inspiring story! I just recently got into blogging and hope to do it full time soon. I love saving money and at one time was a coupon queen. I still have thousands of coupons that have no expiration date. Not sure what to do with them since they have no bar code to be redeemed… lol My blog is about exercise, healthy eating and education about genetically modified foods and how harmful they are. I look forward to visiting your blog again, Sharon

    Best wishes to both you and your daughter.

    Hollie, I teach Digital Marketing at UofToronto – would you be able to participate in a blogger panel in October? Would entail a brief intro of yourself and your blogger know-how, followed by open Q&A. There are 2 other Toronto based bloggers confirmed, including Alexa Clark who I believe you know.

    Please email me if interested for details!
