$500 Challenge Update and Mr. Linky Test

I am calling this an update, but I personally don't have much to add today.

What I really wanted to do was test Mr. Linky. I have always wanted to do a Mr. Linky and I think the $500 Challenge is a great place to start.

I am going to post a $500 Challenge Update every Thursday in April and a $500 Challenge Final Tally on May 6. I will have a Mr. Linky on each of these posts for any of you involved who have blogs and are writing about the $500 Challenge. Your update post could be about what you have done so far to reach your goal and/or any ideas you might have to share to help the rest of us achieve our goals. There were some great comments on the last post, The $500 Challenge - Where Are We Going To Find The Money.

A few Mr. Linky guidelines:
  • Please link your most recent challenge updates to Mr. Linky. If you are not a blogger, please tell us about your challenge updates in the comment section.
  • Please post the link to your update, NOT to your homepage. To do this, click on your update post, copy and paste the whole url address into the Mr. Linky.
  • I do ask that you post a link back to Family Balance Sheet in your article.
  • If you are reading this post via a reader or email, you will need to click through to post your link and to visit others who have linked up.

I appreciate all of the comments on the last post and am looking forward to hearing about every one's progress.

So, please, indulge me, link up, so that I can test out any kinks...Thanks!!

  3. I hope I linked up correctly as well! I am looking for ways to shrink our budget so that we can make room for some extras this Summer. One of which is a family zoo pass.
