“Visit cheapeats.ie every now and then. It has a lot of feisty content about where to get eats that are, well, cheap. The site also has a weekly wrap of the specials on offer in supermarkets around the country which will make your life easier.”

Some advice on how to contact bloggers from Karina Brisby:
Don’t treat bloggers like second-rate journalists. If a press release, report or op-ed hasn’t interested any of your mainstream media contacts, why would a blogger be interested? Sadly the attitude of some media and communication staff … is that bloggers should be grateful that their organization is even talking to them and often try to push content onto bloggers that hasn’t been picked up by their “normal” media contacts.
Don’t spam bloggers with unsolicited press releases, approach it like you would a new friendship and take the time to get to know them, before you ask them to do something for you.
As most bloggers know their audience really well, your organisation has the opportunity to learn and collaborate with bloggers to develop content that delivers outcomes you want to achieve.
