I’ve joined the Yakezie Challenge!

As you all know….I’ve been a blog addict for quite some time and as a result; I started My Take on Money as a way of adding my 2 cents to the world of Personal Finance.  Because of my love for blogging and wanting to get better at it, I decided to join the Yakezie Challenge.

For those who are not familiar with Yakezie, it is a community of bloggers who simply love to blog and selflessly give back by helping other newbie bloggers, like myself; come up the ranks.  Even though I’ve been an avid reader of personal finance blogs, I’ll admit….I don’t know much about the back-end side of blogging.  Yakezie is the place where I will learn all of this while perfecting my craft and networking at the same time.  My ultimate goal is to become a PF blogger full time.

Below are the criteria for joining the Yakezie Challenge:

  • Install the Alexa toolbar.  Alexa tracks your website traffic.  The goal is to get a ranking under 200,000.  I’m currently at 2,859,303.  That’s a far cry from where I was a couple of weeks ago at 15,000,000.  So I’ve made some progress! Yay for me. J
  • Write consistently 2-4 times a week here on MTM and consider guest posting around the community including on to raise my profile.
  • Install the Yakezie Challenger Badge.
  • Announce on your blog that you have joined the Yakezie Challenge.
  • Selflessly promote others and build relationships.
  • Stay committed and consistent over the next 6 months! 
  • Introduce yourself on the Yakezie Challengers Forum and get to know oyther fellow Challengers and Members.
  • Once the 6-month challenge is over and if I’ve met the met the criteria then I will be invited to become an official Yakezie Member and write my Yakezie Member Post.

It’s going to be a lot of work, but with your support, I know that I can accomplish this goal.  My dreams of being a full time blogger will not be possible without you.   

I will keep you updated on how things are going.  I welcome all feedback.

Let’s do this!
