Well it’s been about 4 and a half months since I joined the Yakezie challenge and it seems my Alexa rank has stalled just a whisker shy of my goal. I have been hovering around the 100,000 barrier for weeks but just can’t seem to break it!
Still, I’m a lot better now then when I started! My Alexa then was over 1.6 million, and I felt like I was talking to myself.
But thanks to Sam’s challenge I’ve gotten to know a couple of fellow bloggers, written a handful of guest posts at FreeFromBroke and Money Beagle and gotten listed on the Wisebread list of the top 100 personal finance bloggers. Plus I’m actually making some money!
Blogging can be tough when you’re first starting out, but it helps to have specific goals and a way to track them. Sam’s challenge kept me motivated when it would have been easy to throw in the towel, and for that I owe him a great big thank you.
