Here we go!

My name is Ben Hubbard, and I recently returned from the Middle East after spending more than 5 years as an expat Engineer in the remote deserts of Saudi Arabia and Mongolia. I started Misfit Money with a close friend and am excited to join the Yakezie Challenge. We offer a unique perspective on working overseas to get ahead financially and what it can do for you.

I hope you enjoy the site, and any feedback is welcomed!

Sad to say I don't even have a Alex Ranking, but I will be sure to post it once we do (confirming).

Hi everyone,

My name is Emma. I'm from New Zealand and I have been blogging for over a year. I recently rebranded my blog to focus more on personal finance and money around the world. I have been travelling with my family since my son was four months old. My big focus for 2015 is to build a location independent income from investments so we can keep travelling. We are currently in Spain.

I'm looking forward to taking part in the challenge. My Alexa rank is over 15 million so I'm hopeful that'll go down soon.

 

Cheers,

Emma

Welcome Emma! That sounds like a fun lifestyle and a great concept for a blog. Best of luck with the challenge and feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I'll connect up with you on Twitter.

Thanks! I just updated my signature to include the social media pages. I attempted to load a profile image, but it appears there is an issue with doing so at this point. I will let Sam know. Look forward to the journey!

I somehow managed to miss this thread when I wondered if the Challenge was still active.

 

I'm Marie. We're off-grid homesteaders, blogging about preparedness and sometimes very hard-core frugality. I've been working at figuring out what exactly I offer my readers. I finally figured it out while talking to someone today. I help my readers learn how to be rich, no matter what their income is, through good money management, frugality, increasing skills, etc.

 

At the moment, my global Alexa is 629,988. I will soon be adding the Alexa button to my site. I recall years ago (this is my second attempt!) that there was a list of things that we should be doing. Is that still around?

Hi everyone!

My name is Chris and I live in Phoenix, AZ. I just started my blog 5 weeks ago on May 24th, 2015. My Alexa ranking is 9,219,950 (I didn't know it could go that high!). Looking forward to networking and building a better presence in the blogging world.

 

Thanks for reading!

Hey all,

I'm Gary Weiner and I've been blogging at Super Saving Tips for a year now. What started out as a place to share my money saving tips and ideas has expanded into a broader personal finance blog where I can share the things I've learned in my life. My Alexa rank has bounced around from 2.5 million to over 10 million and now has settled in at 3,274,258 today. I have a ways to go to get under 200k, but I'm looking forward to the challenge!

A bit about me…I spent my working years in retail (department stores and supermarkets) and banking with a bit of financial planning. I am "retired" now and live in NJ with my wife. While I never had a mountain of debt, both my wife and I have health issues that both limit our income and increase our expenses. In a situation where many would be on the verge of bankruptcy, I'm proud to say we've managed to make our finances work.

I've enjoyed many of your blogs and I'm really looking forward to connecting with you all.

Regards,
Gary

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Jeff Hunter and I run a blog called Simple. Thrifty. Living. (simplethriftyliving.com). We are excited to join the Challenge! Our current Alexa ranking is 206,915, but we're hoping to break 200,000 soon. We've seen many of your blogs in passing but are really excited to actually get the chance to work with all of you. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to help our fellow Challengers out and we will be happy to help!

Welcome Jeff! I tried to check out your blog but for some reason that link kept pointing me back to the Yakezie home page. Could you fill out your signature info in settings so that we can all come visit? Looks like you're doing awesome on Alexa so far!!
