Thriftability (finally) accepts the Yakezie Challenge!

I can't take it anymore. I'm Lisa – I blog at Thriftability, and I accept the Yakezie Challenge!


After months of pouring over the forums and getting great ideas, I got my site up and running. I wanted to wait until I "have more content, have a bigger readership, have more time"… but if I keep waiting, it will never happen. It was actually Matt @ Matt's Money Blog, with his 'Happy One Month' blog post than pushed me over the edge. My own PF blog, Thriftability, is coming up on one month as well.


I'm coming into the Challenge with an Alexa of 2,058,980. I edit and blog across several other PF / frugal living sites as a career, and I usually have to put the work ahead of my own blogs. But in my quest to work for myself and not "for the man" I will have to make the time to move Thriftability forward. A BIG THANKS to Sam @ Financial Samurai and all of the PF bloggers who spend countless hours helping others on the Yakezie forums, and to Crystal of Budgeting in the Fun Stuff for being a terrific role model (whether she knows it or not) and motivator.

Be sure to check out my how's and why's of growing my blog with the Yakezie Challenge on Thriftability!

That was a sentimental pitch. I bet you were around in the forum for a bit before posting your intro. All the best
