Today I was shocked to see that I had cracked into the top 200k in the Alexa rankings.  I joined Yakezie on May 18 and my global ranking at that time was well over 2 million.  In less than three months I made it!

I'd especially like to thank everyone on Summer Team #1.  This was an amazing group of individuals who offered me a ton of guidance, support, and inspiration.  In our short time together Pauline from Reach Financial Independence created a new site (Make Money Your Way) and reached the 200k mark.  I also believe that Nick from A Young Pro made it under 200k and I think Peter from UberSteward is only a day or two away.  I wouldn't be surprised if there were others on the team who also hit some milestones.

I'm incredibly grateful to everyone here at Yakezie for showing me the ropes and being patient with all of my questions.  I look forward to being a part of this community for many years to come.  If I can ever repay the favor or pay it forward, please don't hesitate to ask.

Nice job Michael! I agree that the summer teams have been great. Introduced me to some bloggers I hadn't found yet. Always good to make new connections.

Good work.  I'm seeing a nice turnaround in my score over the past couple of weeks and I think the summer teams have a lot to do with it.  Stick with it.
