Yakezie Update

When I started this blog a few months ago, I had never heard of Yakezie and I had no idea what an Alexa ranking was.  I'm still not entirely sure I understand all of it, but I get the basics now.  Well, I joined the Yakezie challenge a few weeks ago and I started off with a ridiculous Alexa ranking.  After a few short weeks, I am now at 2,020,495!  That's a drop of over 5,000,000.  I'm actually quite proud of myself and I'm looking forward to breaking below 1,000,000 in the next month or so.  I imagine the train will slow at some point, but for now, it's full steam ahead.  There are personal finance blogs out there that blow my little ramblings out of the water, but for someone who has zero blogging experience, I'm happy.

With all of this being said, I didn't start this blog to achieve a certain ranking, publicity or whatnot.  I just wanted a place to journal my debt war. 

I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend.  I hope you're watching football and relaxing and not worrying about tomorrow.


  1. Congrats on your progress! You're doing very well; even those 'big shots' out there in the personal finance blogging world were one day where you are today!

  2. Thanks! As I said, it was never anything I intended on doing and it's not important to me, but I figured if I'm going to blog, I might as well keep track of it, ya know?
