I’m SO excited to finally introduce to you what I’ve been working on behind the scenes for awhile now! What do you think??
As you can see we are still working out the kinks, so please be patient.
I first of all want to give a huge thanks to my designer Krista Savadge, who did such a wonderful job on my site redesign!
Now I’d like to give you a re-introduction of myself and a brief tour of my new site!
Hi, I’m Katie…writer/owner of Coupon Katarina! Katarina is pronounced KAT-UH-REENA (not Katrina!) and it’s an old nickname my dad gave me that just seemed to stick! I’m still called that to this day, so feel free to call me either one! I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jason and we have a 4 year old daughter, Kambell who is a pretty awesome little girl and stinkin’ cute! I will often share stories and pictures of my family – hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy sharing!
I started this blog last December and have seen it grow more than I ever expected! I am a very detailed person and tend to take things to the extreme. When I first started blogging, it quickly took over my life! I had to make some adjustments here and there and find the balance it in all. I have since learned that it’s not humanly possible to post every single deal out there, but my goal is to post the BEST content without all the filler. If it’s not something I would do myself, I don’t post it!
– My NEW Design –
Top Menu – Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the top menu bar. If you are new to couponing, you will find your “Getting Started” information in my “Couponing For Newbies” and “Drug Store Guides” categories. If you’re looking for all the deals for a certain store, you can find that in my “Deals by Store” category. You will also notice at the far right of the menu bar is a search field where you can search my site for anything else you can’t find through the categories.
My Feeds – There are many ways to keep in touch with me! Subscribe to my RSS, get daily email updates, Follow me on Twitter or my favorite – “Like” me on Facebook! Come on, I Like you! Facebook is the place where I share special deals, occasional giveaways, tidbits of my daily life and more! Sometimes there’s just not enough time to post something to the blog, so I’ll just put it on Facebook so you don’t miss out on time sensitive deals!
Coupon Database – My FAVORITE feature of my new site is the Coupon Database! Sure, I have all the coupons spelled out for you in my weekly matchups, but how many times have you needed a coupon for something that is NOT part of the sale? Just search the product and it will show you every coupon for that item and where it is located! It’s the SAME database I use to do my matchups, so you’re in good hands.
Kroger – I LOVE Kroger and wanted this to be a big part of my new site. While I understand that Kroger is a regional grocery store, I know a big chunk of you visit my site JUST for those matchups and extra deals I post throughout the week! Here you can view the weekly matchups, current Catalinas, plus link to Kroger Digital Coupons.
Most Popular Posts – This is still a work in progress. Here you can access what’s FREE at Walmart and Target, other FREEBIES posted throughout the day, plus the weekly drug store matchups.
Comments – Under each post you will have the option to “Leave A Comment”. It puts a smile on my face to hear feedback from my readers! PLEASE leave a comment (borderline begging here)! If you like something, say so. If you purchased something that I recommended, let us know! Other readers like to browse comments as well and get advice from others. I only ask that you keep the comments positive. If it is something negative that you feel you need to say to me, please feel free to contact me by email. I reply to each and every one of my emails personally.
In the next couple days you may see a few tweaks here and there, but this is it! I would love to hear your comments and/or suggestions!
Make yourself at home and be sure to come back on Friday for a full day of giveaways in celebration of my new design!!
