Yakezie Personal Finance Blog Carnival | January 2011 Edition

I’m pleased to be hosting the Yakezie blog carnival this week.  The Yakezie is a personal finance blog network I joined several months ago to connect with other personal finance bloggers.  The bloggers work together to highlight articles from around the network and help each other learn more about blogging.

The blog carnival travels from blog to blog each week and is similar to a personal money management magazine full of different articles about personal finance.  Enjoy the posts in this week’s carnival and visit www.Yakezie.com to learn more about the network and connect with the bloggers.
