Hey there! My name is Zee, I have been blogging since September 2013, so I'm still new to this but I'd like to join the challenge! My website is:

http://www.work-to-not-work.com

My current Alexa ranking is 6,350,662… I actually just got the domain name, that one is not ranked at all so my ranking came from the old url of http://www.worktonotwork.BlogSpot.com which forwards to the new domain.

 

I found that I blog about anything related to personal finance, but I focus on things that affect me personally. My main goal is to reach financial independence so that I can spend my time on the things that I want to do. Working is just what I do at the moment to pay the bills and buy my own time to get me out of the rat race.

 

Anyways, let the challenge begin!

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to join the Challenge (my challenge post will go up this Saturday)  My starting point in the Alexa rankings is around 700,000 after blogging for two months.  I originally started my blog just to get some of my ideas out there but I'm having such a good time that I decided to see how I could grow my readership and online network.    

When I discovered the Challenge, I knew I wanted to participate to meet new people in the financial blogging communityv and to help motivate me to make The Smaller Dollar all that it can be. 

Hopefully come September I will have met all the goals of the Yakezie challenge and will be a member of the Yakezie network.

Hi everyone.

Count me in!! My current Alexa rank is around 201k after having the site live for around 3 months. Therefore my target in the next 6 months is to get down to 100k. I think that with the knowledge and support available here, it should be doable! Looking forward to engaging and working with you all.

Graham.

The above post was made on November 7th.

The 6 month target gave me until May 7th.

I'm delighted to announce (brag) that my current ranking (as of 17th April) is 86,653. I did it!! Challenge completed!

 

However…

 

I'm not done. I want in. Having this target of 100k by a specific date has acted as great motivation for me. What are people's opinions on attempting a "Yakezie Challenge – part II" to get down to 50k…?

Hello everyone!  I am excited to announce that I am joining the Yakezie Challenge.

 

To introduce myself, my name is Quinn and I live in San Francisco.  I'm a former investment banker who has also worked in the venture capital / startup community and for some small bootstrapped businesses.  I'm blogging about personal finance and small business at http://www.wealthoutwest.com.  Outside of work I'm passionate about pretty much all outdoor activities, so there is some of that on the blog as well (hiking, kayaking, other outdoor sports).  You can read more about my background here

 

I've only been blogging for about four weeks so far.  My current Alexa ranking is 6,332,610, so I have a long way to go to break 200,000 — but I'm excited for the challenge.  

 

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome to the challenge Quinn! I just finished the challenge and did my member post last week. It's a great journey and the Yakezie network is very helpful. Be active with posting and commenting on other blogs and that Alexa rank will drop. Best of luck!

Welcome Quinn, and best of luck. I noted the modifier "recovering" before "investment banker" on your site; I hope you write about what your recovering from, I'm intrigued!

 

I've subscribed so I can stop by to read and comment regularly and also followed you on Twitter. Best wishes!
