Hi everyone,

 

My blog turns 2 weeks old today and I am throwing my hat into the ring for the Yakezie Challenge.  I updated the spreadsheet, have read great insight from you all in the forums, and am feverishly adding content to my site.  I will be adding my announcement post on my site shortly.  Unfortunately, I do not currently have a rank from Alexa, but no where to go but up!

A summary of my blog: my main focus is to give in depth how to's about what strategies have worked for me in making extra cash apart from my day job as well as tactics that have saved me money.  Specific areas I will tackle are second jobs, DIY's, and finding good deals.  I'm sure I will delve into investments and real estate, but will not be my primary focus.

Since my site is pretty brand new, I welcome any and all comments and advice, both on the site as well as through the forums.  As many have stated, I am very encouraged by the sense of community and willingness to share on these forums.  Thanks and I look forward to getting to know many of you!
