Joining the Yakezie Challenge

Proud Member of the Yakezie ChallengeI’ve seen “The Yakezie Challenge” around on a few of my favorite personal finance blogs, so I decided to check it out. Apparently, it’s a group of personal finance and lifestyle bloggers joined together to help each other break 200,000 in Alexa Rankings (I’m currently 1,686,423 so I have a long way to go!) But it’s not all about site rank.

The reason I decided to join the challenge is that it requires a dedication to blogging 2-4 times per week for next six months. While I went through a period of my life where I blogged a lot, I stopped writing for Her Every Cent Counts for a while. While only a few readers would frequently comment on my posts, I knew there were others who were repeat visitors who probably wondered what happened to me.

Incredibly enough, I started this blog in 2007. I really don’t have enough posts to show for it. Additionally, and most importantly, this blog is designed to keep my finances in check. When I blog about my spending… I’m less likely to splurge. I know I have you, my reader, to hold me accountable. So, with that, I’m committing to the Yakezie challenge. I’m doing well so far… this weekend I’ve written 7 posts that will show up over the coming days. I look forward to reading your comments on them… some are quite controversial.

  1. Welcome to the Challenge! The best place to network is on the Yakezie Public Forums. Introduce yourself, get to know your fellow Challengers and Members and hope to see you around!

  2. I keep thinking about joining … I"m just not sure if I want to make the commitment. Right now blogging is fun and motivating. I feel like if I put myself in a position of forcing myself or trying to meet someone else's goal, then it won't be fun any more. Also I'm not wanting to monetize my blog at all. So … I'm on the fence about it. But good luck with your challenge! I think it's a great thing that they've put together there.

  3. Welcome to Yakezie! It is the single best thing I've done for my blog and I'm sure you'll love the support, connection, and promotion you find there. Jump in with blog swaps, share others' posts on Facebook and Twitter, and comment, comment, comment.
