Yakezie.com Launch Today!

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.


  1. Thanks for the kind mention. It looks like Akismet has blacklisted my email, which is really annoying… do they think such measures stop actual spammers? I’m really wondering what the point of Akismet is if it has negatively affected so many of our fellow Yakeziers as well. Well, that is my rant for the day ­čśë

    Thanks for mentioning the backpack post! I was just a bit too late on the Staples deal, unfortunately, and missed out. I did get a nice L.L. Bean backpack for $23, and hope that will last through elementary school for my little guy!
