Hi there! I am SO glad you're here. Here is everything you need to know about The Bartering Blogger

I'm Faith - a work-at-home mom to five, photographer and blogger. I'm so glad you visited this newest project. I also blog over at Simplicity - my life in {mostly} photographs and teach online photography classes.

The Bartering Blogger was originally created by Ashley of after nine to five but now I'm the happy mama running the show! 

The Bartering Blogger is tiny right now, I know, but my vision for it is anything but. The Bartering Blogger is a place where bloggers can connect, link-up and swap anything from ad spots and digital goods and services to handmade items, home accessories, books, DVDs, kids stuff etc. 

Imagination is the only limit to what we will be able to create in this little (at the moment) space, and since we'll be linking to our blogs it'll be a very personal experience - like swapping with a neighbor or browsing the yard sale down the street. We all have tight budgets these days. Instead of going out and spending money, why not swap something you don't want or need anymore for something you do?

The blog portion of this site will include weekly blogging tips, link-ups, features and guest posts. This is a work in progress - still not fully developed but my vision for this site can - with your help and participation -  can become something truly unique and unlike anything else out there. 

This isn't just my blog - this is ours - a community that is starting to form around this idea that you don't have to spend money to buy happiness. That one woman's trash is another woman's treasure and we can switch, swap, connect and together make each other's lives just a little brighter.

So I hope you'll take a minute to follow this site on Google Friend Connect, or Twitter, link-up, browse around and make a suggestion on how I can improve this site. If you'd like to guest post or offer a giveaway please don't hesitate to let me know and I'm sure we can work something out!
