Hi Everyone-


My name is Liz and I blog at 


I joined the challenge TODAY {January 4, 2014} and my Alexa score 703,628! 


I started this blog to pursue my passion of writing and personal finance. I started out studying journalism in college as this was my passion however, the recession was in full swing and I got scared. I didn't think I could find a good job in journalism and I was craving stability. So, I doubled in accounting as this seemed to have much better job prospects and pursued that career after college. I now work at a large publicly traded company as a tax accountant. I don't regret this choice necessarily, but I do feel that writing is my passion.


Hubby and I graduated from school with a lot of student loan debt. We are working really hard to pay down these loans so that we can move on to the next exciting chapter of our lives- starting a family : ) I will be blogging about the financial decisions we are making in our mid-twenties and our journey towards debt freedom. Seems like there is so much to learn and so many choices to make. I am learning about frugal living habits and am an avid crocheter/crafter.


I'm really excited to be joining the Yakezie challenge :)

Welcome to the Yakezie community Liz and good luck.


Its nice to get some background on you and the site looks good – I'm particularly a fan of the header!


I don't know if its just me, but the link in your post doesn't take me to your site directly. Also, I would recommend (as I'm sure would many others) that you add a footer on here so we can get to your site easier from future posts.

Welcome to the challenge!


A fellow tax accountant! I worked in the field for about 3 years and had to leave – more because of the people than the company or tax accounting in general.


Good luck with the challenge!
