Yakezie Carnival #3: Benefits Edition

When I joined the Yakezie group, I did so because I wanted to network with other personal finance bloggers, get linked to, and see my Alexa rank rise. What I did not realize is that I was joining a fantastic group and there were many more benefits that I didn’t even consider.

I love the selfless spirit of the Yakezie. I love that people are donating their time and skills to the group so that everyone will benefit. I’d like to send a few shout outs to those who have done some terrific work for the group: Early Retirement Extreme for creating the idea and form for the short carnival, Frugal Zeitgeist for the awesome widget he’s created, and finally Eliminate the Muda and Financial Samurai for the hard work they have put in to make the group so successful.

First I’d like to highlight the seven newbies and then we’ll get to the group as a whole.

    The Yakezie Challenge has been a wonderful experience for me. I’ve been meeting more and more PF bloggers all the time. I had no idea how large this community was before really diving in! I only wish I had more Real Life friends who loved to talk about finance haha. I cant tell you how many blank stares I’ve gotten!

  6. Awesome! Welcome new challengers! I gotta say, some of the MOST interesting bloggers are the most unknown and newest ones. The reason is because there isn’t an incessant amount of affiliate related posts (not to say this is bad, it’s just less interest). It’s more personal and unique.

    To hear new stories from new people is THE BEST!

    Fight on.

    Best,
