Hey everyone – I'm starting a new series next week and I'd like to include links and guest posts from the Yakezie community. 

My husband and I are having our first kid this summer and I've decided to track the baby expenses on our blog. I'm also working on a series for parents o be on getting finances ready for the baby. I know some members are parents already and I would love to include your input. If you have any baby related posts on finances, please include it in this thread and I'll do my best to incorporate them in the series. 

Please note I may include a snippet of your post (a few lines) with credit of course. I want to create an extremely helpful resource for parents and would love to spread the word about other Yakezie members. 

If you want to do a guest post on the topic and share your experience, I'll be happy to accept it. I encourage you to please include 2 relevant links ( no credit card or payday loans reviews please! :) ) in the guest post for your own blog. I'll also include a site link in the author box for your post. This is great as you get to select the keywords you want to link to. 

If you notice a backlink from my site to your post or you write a guest post ( I would love that!), I humbly ask that you help promote it on Twitter, FB, and Tip'd whenever possible. 

 

Thank you again for everyone's support with Couple Money – I really appreciate the help!

Thanks Melissa and Craig! I'm due the first week in August, but with my family's history, it may be a July baby. At least I'll have some material for the blog as we get ready :)

First baby, that's exciting.  Congrats!

I wrote a post that fits: <a href=http://liverealnow.net/babies-are-expensive/>Babies are Expensive</a>.

Actually, I've done it a few times.  As a debt-ridden parent of two small, and one not-so-small children, it's a topic near and dear to my heart.  :)

Congratulations! I'll be sure to stay tuned so that I know what to expect when I have children here in about 5-10 years! Laugh I've heard those diapers can be expensive!
