About This Blog

First of all, why Cranraspberry?

That name goes back to the long gone days of dial up internet. It was the late Nineties (yikes!), I was still living in Moscow, and I really wanted to find a screen name that would be personal and have special meaning. So I looked back to my Canadian childhood and instantly thought of my favorite juice – Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry! Almost two decades later (double yikes!) I’m still using the same name. On top of that I still love the tart combination of those two berries.

Why did you start this blog?

I have to admit, I am very passionate about the things I enjoy. I’m a member of multiple forums, an avid Amazon reviewer and the kind of person that will write lengthy emails to customer service. On top of that, I spend way too much time researching products – I can’t buy vacuum cleaner bags without going through a bunch of reviews first! I feel like I have quite a bit of knowledge and experience to share, and started this blog to get that out there.

What do you write about?

One of my personal favorite topics is Bargain hunting! I love the challenge of finding great deals, and being able to buy great quality items at a fraction of the full retail price.

I also try to do Reviews of the things I buy, from kitchen cleaners to online health stores to beauty products. I’m also a bit of a laundry nerd (believe it or not, that’s a real thing!) and try to share my knowledge there as well.

Whenever I can, I have Giveaways for my wonderful readers and followers.

How can I contact you? 

Blogging can feel a bit lonely every now and then – you see those page view stats, but don’t know anything about the people who are visiting. Please feel free to reach out to me, even if it’s just to say hi! You can use either the comments field after every post, or the Contact page (or form below), and of course Facebook and Twitter!
