I want to let you know about a challenge I’m entering with Parenting Family Money – The Yakezie Challenge.
What is it? Good question!
It’s a group of site, that have teamed up to help each and support each other. It was originally a way to help get your Alexa ranking lower (lower means more are visiting your site) but the Yakezie has turned out to be much more.
There is truly a group of sites run by some wonderful people who are there to help answer blogging questions, give feedback, and really provide support. Blogging seems like it’s all rock-star parties 24-7 but really it’s not (kidding about the 24-7, the rock-star parties only happen a few hours a day).
I thought PFM had been part of the challenge already, since I publish Free From Broke, which has been a member Yakezie site fo some time. But I didn’t realize I needed to add separate sites into the challenge too (my bad).
So here is our little site, Parenting Family Money, sitting atop an Alexa ranking of about 583,000 as I write this. I think we can get that below 200,000 in no time (our goal).
I’m looking forward to exposing Parenting Family Money to new readers as well as help promote a lot of great other sites as well here.
