Yakezie Challenge Carnival #4 - The Growth Edition

Yakezie LGYakezie… what?

The Yakezie is a group of bloggers that have joined to challenge themselves and each other to continuously improve and to selflessly promote others. It is not about competition, it is about cooperation.

Our little band of bloggers is slowly but surely growing more and more each week. And the success of this challenge is nothing short of amazing. If I am not mistaken, when we started this effort we had 4 blogs represented on page 1 of the WiseBread 100 Most Popular Financial Blogs. At last check we have 20! Now that is growth!

The challenge was originally launched by Financial Samurai. If you are interested in joining the challenge, you can by simply following the criteria:


1) Install the Alexa toolbar if not already and comment what your current Alexa ranking is, so we can keep track. Comment on this Financial Samurai post to announce your acceptance.
2) Write consistently 2-4 times a week.
3) Install a Yakezie badge from Eliminate the Muda or from Credit Card Chaser
4) Announce on your blog that you have joined the challenge.
5) Selflessly promote others.
6) Stay committed!  Quitters are not desired in this challenge.
