The Yakezie Challenge
I joined the Yakezie Challenge yesterday (pronounced YA-KAY-ZEE).
Huh? I am sorry.
Yakezie is the web's largest personal finance and lifestyle blog network. Some of the goals within the 6 month challenge are to achieve an Alexa ranking of 200K and to selflessly promote others while building a network of likeminded people. Personally I am ranking 4,985,251 and look forward to getting down to the 200k mark because it is lonely all the way up here. However, the selflessly promoting others goal is easy for me because after reading just 1 article I realized I found great info.
Here is an article by Sandy from yesiamcheap.com that was a good realization for me as a blogger who would like to make more money blogging.

Think challenges are stupid...
Other challenges that have worked for me in the past when I put my all into them.
I did P90X and look at the results. Sorry I only had a cellphone photo. Between me and you I wish I still looked like that.
I did Ed Dale's Challenge. This allowed me to create a site called family weekend breaks and get my feet wet with internet marketing.
Well, I hope to give it my all to the Yakezie Challenge and I will check back with you and give you updates from time to time. Especially my Alexa ranking which sucks... 4,985,251

Thanks for commenting on my post. It wasn't meant to scare anyone off, but instead maybe force everyone to think of crunching the numbers for themselves before thinking of blogging as a full-time gig.

I know exactly what you were saying and your honesty was the best thing in the world. Thanks for being real. You didn't scare me off. In fact you made the fire burn more. And, yes those are my kids. They are the reason I do all I do.

Welcome to the challenge, Jai! I read your post on how you've avoided the 9 to 5... quite a list of skills and talents! I also love the photos on the main page.

Hi Jai, nice to meet you. I just registered at Yakezie and will be "going live" next week. Great photos.

This was the first time I visited this post. I collected so many interesting things from your site especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your posts, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here. Keep the good work up.
