Yakezie Theta Membership Class Is Now Open! Thumbnail

Greetings all Challengers! For those of you who joined the challenge before August 1, 2013 please fill out the questionnaire to be considered a Yakezie Theta Class Member. If you are within 30 days short of the six month period, you should still apply for consideration as this process takes about a month. If you are beyond 30 days short, please wait for the next class.

The form will likely take anywhere from 15-30 minutes so please save your work and scroll down to the very bottom and click submit. The questionnaire will be open until March 22, 2014. To help ensure everyone submits before the deadline, I’d like for every Challenger to ping another Challenger to fill out the form. Late submissions will not be accepted given the amount of logistics this process entails.

The Yakezie Membership committee will review each application and send out notifications by end of September to begin writing a Member Post or continue the challenge for the next class. If there are some holes in your application, please use the time until the deadline to work on your holes.

The Yakezie Challenge is open to any blogger who is seeking to grow their blog through a great support network of like-minded people. Our mission is to continuously help others as we’ve all been there before and understand the struggles. There are a tremendous amount of things one can learn to become a great blogger. Who knows, you might grow so big one day that you won’t even have to work another job in your life!

When I first started blogging in 2009, I was rejected from my one and only carnival submission and I was never even responded to after applying for a staff writing role. Networks that existed were by invitation only, and that invitation never came. As a result of the rejections, I decided to create the network in December 2009 to help everyone who had a rough time or who is having a rough time, get ahead. The Network is based on meritocracy. The harder you try, the more likely you will succeed.
