Hey, I’m Jamela Porter, my friends call me Pink. I am a divorced, single, African American mother and blogger who lives Midwest, Fort Wayne, Indiana to be exact. I have lived here most of my life except for the short stint where I lived in North Carolina.
Full time I am a manager and bartender at Northstar Bar and Grill here in Fort Wayne. Which is the perfect career for me, because I am not even close to a morning person, and I really love to talk, especially when I can speak freely and be myself.
I have 3 children and as I said above, I am a single parent. My kids are 18, 16 and 7. My oldest is a boy, and raising a man, when you have never been one is probably one of the most difficult things I have had to do in this lifetime. My other 2 are girls. Minus the occasional attitudes from the middle and the little one thinking sometimes that she is an only child, I don’t get why people say girls are harder to raise, I totally disagree.
by Pink started in 2012 as Frugal in Fort Wayne and Beyond, as a coupon and deal blog. I got started by working as a VA on A Proverbs Wife. At the time I had just gotten into couponing, like hardcore couponing and she was one of my main go to blogs. At one point she was looking for people to Virtually Assist her and I applied and made the cut. She taught me so much that when she no longer needed a VA I was able to take my skill and start my own blog.
I switched over to a review blog in 2014 I believe, the reason for the switch, I liked the idea of giving my opinion on products and also when I started I was a stay at home mom and going back to work, I didn’t have time to keep up with all the deals, and I didn’t want to just give up.
I am totally glad I didn’t my blog is growing daily and I really enjoy what I do. I am expanding more and more on what I write, and I am trying to get comfortable with writing more on personal things that I am going through in my life.
