For those of you who read this blog, I'm curious if you would have interest in tips and advice on taxes and finances in general. There's a lot of cool things you can do while you're poor that I think a lot of people do not realize. I'm not looking to make money off a blog or anything. I just love talking about this stuff as many of you may already know. Here's some ideas that have come to mind:
-Health Savings Accounts (HSA's)
-The Earned Income Credit (EIC)
-Investing for retirement when you're poor
-Tax credits, deductions, and strategy
-Current and proposed tax legislation - whether it's right or wrong, all these bills being passed have tax implications
-How to pay off debt when you're in debt
-Insurance - Health, Auto, Life, AD&D, Disability
-Anything else you might be interested in...
I was thinking I could even have some guest postings from people I know who have more experience in the field. Honestly, there's so much out there to know that unless you have a background in accounting or finance, you might not really understand, especially if you're still in college or just started in your career. The blog would not just be informational, but I would also give my opinion on what I think most people should do.
Let me know if you have any thoughts or interest. If you are interested, tell me your top 3 areas of interest in order.

Being the #1 fan of an 11-month old means lots of things. Here are a few:
- I wear more food than I eat.
- Did I wash my hair today? No. Will I wash it tomorrow? Yeah...I guess...maybe...
- Some days you get peed on. You just do.
Would I trade it for anything? No. Never. I don't think I can emphasize NO enough. That being said, some days it's kiiiind of hard to feel like a girl. Enter, WEEZERTHERAPY. One of my all time favorite loveloveLOVE things is when Ben sings to me. The louder the better, full on belting. (Anybody remember Brown House karaoke parties?) Up until a few months ago, my favorite was "Baseball" by Ozma. It's been replaced by...THIS:
The Prettiest Girl In The Whole Wide World, by Weezer. Today I had macaroni noodles smushed into my hair by sweet baby James. I don't care though, because Ben thinks I'm the prettiest girl in the whole wide world. So suck oooon THAT, macaroni noodles. :)
