Tomorrow I’m participating in First Gen American’s Coffee Talk, so I didn’t want to do a big post tonight.

11 Links to Finish Off 2011 #yakezie

I started this personal finance blog, my third blog, and it has grown faster than either of the others, thanks mostly to the Yakezie network and the amazing people I’ve met over there.
