Today is the launch of Yakezie.com! The Yakezie group has really aided the growth of Little House in the Valley and I’m excited to be a part of its continued endeavors.
The Yakezie is a group of personal finance bloggers dedicated to supporting each others growth through selfless promotion. Our group has grown to over 100 personal finance blogs; many dedicated to sharing our collective knowledge of responsible personal finance with our readers. Below is a sampling of articles from our members this past week:
- Len Penzo with his weekly Black Coffee round-up: Always wacky, off-beat, but so on target.
- Ultimate Money Blog with Overdraft Fees – Opt In or Opt Out. I personally think this is just another way for banks to continue making money off of people who can’t manage their finances. If you don’t do anything, you’ll automatically be opted-out, which in my humble opinion is the better option.
- The Saved Quarter with Frugal Choices in Kids’ Backpacks. I just took advantage of the Staples gift card option a few weeks ago; I purchased a $40 backpack and will be receiving the equivalent in a gift card. So the backpack was basically free (sort of.)
- Budgeting in the Fun Stuff with Putting the National Debt into Perspective. I like Crystal’s take on how she is managing her own money wisely and not worrying too much about how that trillion dollars could be spent.
- Invest it Wisely with Punished by Askimet: Am I a Spammer? What do I do?: Poor Kevin, I have to continually fish him out of my spam box whenever he posts a comment. I’m not really sure why he ends up there, but luckily I always check my Askimet box and fish out the legitimate comments. He has a couple of plug-ins that could offer potential solutions for those poor souls who end up marked as “spam”, but that means other blogs need to install them.
