Jumping on the Bandwagon....


I have joined the Yakezie Challenge!! don't know what this is??? 

In a is related to the Alexa rating system that tracks how popular your website is.  While I know my little blog will never be in the ranks of Facebook or Google....I would love to share my journey with other PF bloggers.  I know that I am not the most worldly in this area, but I am learning.  And what knowledge I lack, I think I make up for in brute honesty.

Financial Samurai has graciously been the host of this challenge and is a bigwig (at least in my opinion) in the PF scene.  The challenge is to continuously improve the traffic to your site.  I know that I found some of my favorite blogs via other blogs.  I hope that some of you have found me this way too!  My current Alexa ranking is a pitiful #3,443,893.  How's that for an ego bruiser??

So here we go.  The first attempt at promoting myself.  While my blog will remain an account of our journey, I hope to throw in a few more general posts about PF, budgeting, etc.  Of course, my personal area of interest is dealing with the financial effects of having a Special Needs child.  So look for some future info on this.

Whose with me?  You up for the challenge?


  1. Welcome to the challenge.... I started with an Alexa of around 282k and this week I just managed to slip into the Wisebread top 100 blogs.... Yakezie is awesome.

  2. Welcome to The Yakezie! I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun and do great. Hope to see you around my site and others in the future!



  3. Welcome to the challenge Mysti! Look forward to seeing you around and also following your journey out of debt!
