Yakezie Update and Summer Group Round Up

Yakezie Update/Summer Group Round Up
On April 15, I joined the Yakezie Challenge (to read about what that is, check out my “I joined post“).  At the time, my Alexa rank was 522,566.  Today it is 152,894.

Part of the reason for recent decreases in the Alexa score is due to the efforts of my summer Yakezie group.  Our group (4) is the newest and shineiest of all.  I want to thank the group members and the entire set of Yakezie members and challengers for your support for this blog!

Here is a sample of my group’s recent posts:


Beating Broke reminds us that the main job we have in college is to learn, so don’t mess up by working too much in Don’t Be a Fool, Focus on School.

My University Money seconds that and shows you how in Why Work When You Can Get Scholarships.

Brave New Life reminds us to get back to the basics of saving with Don’t Worry About Investing, Just Start Saving.

Baking the Budget asks if you are planning well enough in Planning for a Major What If.

A guest post on Not Made of Money shows us how to use commonly available products to clean – in Saving With Do-It Yourself Cleaning.

You Have More Than You Think asks us if $46,000 a month is too much for child support in $46,000 a Month for Child Support – How Much Is Too Much?

Our Journey to Zero introduced us to the concept of an online chain letter in 7 Links of Awesome Sauce.
