I Love You…Like A Blogger – Yakezie Edition

Welcome, and Happy Sunday! Consider this new series to be a “best of” carnival of sorts. Every time I post the I Love You…Like a Blogger series, I will include the best 10 articles I read during the week.

This week, I have decided to focus on blogs participating in the Yakezie Challenge. I am looking into having this become a regular weekly carnival, but we’ll see how things shape up! ๐Ÿ˜€

Yakezie Edition

Some of you may know about the Yakezie Challenge, which was started by Sam from Financial Samurai, but for those that have not, it’s basically a group of personal finance bloggers who want to increase their traffic ranking. As a blogger, who doesn’t want to have their message reach more people, so it really makes a lot of sense. It has been more fun than anything watching the participants climb the ranks each week.

When I first started the challenge back in December, I was at 324,054 and have now reached 179,856, & 22,256 in the United States. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can help me by installing the Alexa Toolbar, if you like, since that is the only way Alexa can track visitors. You can also head over and write a review for Enemy of Debt, to share with others how EOD has helped you, and why you LOVE this blog so much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy this week’s I love You…Like a Blogger!

    Honored by your kind words sir. Honored. You are the bomb dot com.

  2. Brad, thanks for the link and mention!! ‘Preciate it man!

    • Brad Chaffee says:

      Not a problem at all Jason! I’m still trying to figure out what your tweet meant from earlier in the week. Something about “what goes around comes around”. I had a busy week so I may have missed it, but am very curious.

  3. Thank for the mention Brad!

    And if I can… Let me say you make some rockin’ graphics. I saw your work over on Delivering Away Debt.

    When I get rich I’m going to have to hire you to do some work for me!

    • Brad Chaffee says:

      What’s awesome is that HUMMER! I wish I could take credit for that piece of art. I can draw, so maybe I need to get some drawing software/hardware for my computer. Thanks for the compliment! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Keep knocking out that debt and becoming rich will happen as a result.

      P.S. I enjoyed chatting with you on the phone last night, and thanks for helping me out too.

  4. Elle says:

    Thanks for including my post on cash flow Brad! I really enjoyed Jeff’s thoughts on being content. While financial freedom is a great goal and an important step, it’s not the main thing in life.

  5. Nice Brad! BTW, love your design for Jeff. What are your rates? I really love Jeff’s new design. You got SKILLZ brother!

    I may want to offer several new versions of my mask. New emotions perhaps.



    • Brad Chaffee says:

      Thank you Sam! Really it was nothing, as I did not create the most awesome piece of that header—the Hummer! I wish I could say I did though cause it is totally awesome!

  6. Thanks for the mention Brad!

  7. Forest says:

    I’m really happy to be a part of Yakezie. I have gone from around 180k to 160k in a matter of days since joining the team…. Have you been getting many cool opportunities since reaching sub 200k?

    Great carnival showcasing some awesome bloggers.

  8. Thanks for the mention!!
