Yakezie.com. It seems to be a community of bloggers focusing on personal finance topics. I am still exploring the site and trying to figure it all out. But I did run across a challenge that I knew right away was something in which I wanted to take part.
The challenge relates to Alexa ranking and is something that I have been trying to improve on my own. The target seems a bit aggressive but I think it will be possible with a little help from fellow challengers. If I am understanding correctly, networking becomes a large part of the community. I know that I have met several wonderful bloggers in the internet marketing and online income worlds so I figure those who write about personal finance are equally as friendly.
As a result, over the next several weeks I will probably be reading several new personal finance blogs and introducing you to those that I think are the most helpful and interesting. Maybe this will end up being the inspiration I need to start my own financial blog. I have been kicking the idea around and know that I would be better off having my own site.
Anybody reading more than a few of my Hubs knows that I enjoy the topics of finance and investing. I especially enjoy stocks and options. Hopefully my knowledge and practical experience in options can be useful to the Yakezie community. Now back to the challenge itself.
The challenge is a six month challenge and calls for those with an Alexa ranking of greater than 200,000 to move into the top 200,000. I have placed the challenge badge on the right side of this blog next to the Alexa ranking widget to help you keep track of my progress. I need to post 2-4 times per week which is something I do anyway so that is not going to be hard. I also need to help promote others in the challenge which again is something that I have had a tendency to do anyway.
I am excited about the prospect of improving my ranking on this blog. The target is more aggressive than I would have selected but I still think it is doable. Clearly there are many others who have taken this same challenge and succeeded. I am looking forward to it. What a great way to start the New Year! That and corned beef and cabbage later today along with football and I am set.
