Yakezie Challenge Part Deux
- Created on 29 September 2014
If at first you don't succeed (as with a debt free journey or coaxing a 9 month old into a much needed nap), try again. I came across the Yakezie challenge as a new blogger. This is a great community of personal finance and lifestyle bloggers who really were central in the development of the Debt Free Divas blog. The challenge goal to lower your blog rank is doable. Plenty of great bloggers that I heavily respect have walked this road before.
Life happens. Plans change. Priorities evolve. Well, I'm back. My current rank is 575,000 and my goal is 200,000 by the end of 2014. I must commit to regular, weekly posts and support other bloggers reach their target in the challenge. That I can do. As with the Power of Community experiment, the momentum to reach goals is supercharged with the power of accountability. My original goals haven't changed. I may have back-burnered the challenge before, but that wasn't the end of the story. Has your debt free journey hit a snag or bend in the road? Let's dust ourselves off and jump back into these challenges with both feet. Let's do this!
Weekend Reading – Saving More of Your Hard Earned Dollars
- Created on 26 September 2014
Great information abounds when looking for topics on personal finance. I want to start sharing a few of the inspiring posts that I hope will be useful. As you wind down for the week, how about ramping up on your weekend reading. My goal, as always, is to keep inspiring #teamdebtfree to achieve our debt free dreams. I run across a lot of great stories and love to share. This first blog crawl (I’ve never done a bar crawl, so this will have to do) is all about saving money where you are.
