Best of the Rest: New Header Edition

As I mentioned last week, I have been working on a new header and it is finally here! I love it and I think it’s perfect. I won’t be changing much for awhile, but I think overall the site is much more use-friendly and attractive. If you’re reading via reader or email, come by and take a look and let me know what you think!

A friend helped with the logo. She did everything I could ever ask for and more. Here’s a close up shot:Also, Forest from Frugal Zeitgeist was super helpful and made the header look so much better, thank you so much!

If you don’t like the new header, don’t tell me. But if you do, let me know in the comments!!

Onto to this week’s awesome articles that I read:

Heather at Inexpensively writes about how to get a free iPhone 4 upgrade. I did something very similar to that a few months ago, and it definitely works. I’ve never used Gazelle, but I’m amazed that it’s been so successful for her!

Going with my “I love Financial Planning” theme, Wealth Pilgrim has another article about how to find financial planning jobs. I spoke to Neal awhile ago about exactly this and he basically told me this happens all the time and to run away from these sorts of “opportunities.” I think one of the most important aspects of a job is the training, and if you don’t get this, stay very far away!

Engineer your finances has another friendly reminder to prevent fraud and get rid of junk mail. I wrote about it last week, so get off your butt and do something!

On a similar note, Adam Justko guest posts at Five Cent Nickel about how he “almost” got his identity stolen, but prevented it. Funny story, but it’s a serious issue. His cautiousness didn’t help this time, but always being mindful of who is asking for your information and why they need it could save you from some big time stress.

Have a great Sunday and remember: U-S-A! U-S-A!

    Thanks for including my article! I hope it helps someone find a way to make a “want” fit into their budget.

  2. HAha, great header! Love the egg and sweatband, and sweat! Cool stuff!

    I’m working on the Yakezie header and design myself. Taking a while but it will all be done by Aug 15!

    Best,

  3. Love the new header! I’ve hired a designer to help me spiff up my blog but am waiting my turn right now.

    I love the new logo and header. So, who gets the credit for the egg?

  5. Definitely an excellent job with the new header!

  6. Oh, and just noticed you made it a favicon too! Very cool. We need to get all of yakezie using favicons…a tiny thing that I think makes a noticeable difference.

  10. I also really like the new header! I’m getting one made right now that I hope everybody will like. I need to look into the favicon change. :-)
