I have joined the Yakezie Challenge!

I thought it would be fitting that my first post would be to say I’m joining the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge.  Since I’m joining this challenge that swift kick I talked about in our little introduction within the Aboutsection won’t be coming anytime soon (hopefully).  Essentially I’m pledging to do the following:


  1. Install the Alexa tool bar and let a group of my peers know so they can keep track of my progress.
  2. Write consistently and at least 2 times per week.  Good because my goal is 5x a week.
  3. Install the Yakezie Challenger BadgeDone!
  4. Announce on my blog that I have joined the challenge – Done!
  5. Promote others like no other.  I’m kind of doing that see my blog roll to the right.  But I step it up!
  6. Introduce myself on the Yakezie Challengers Forum.  Shouldn’t be too much of a problem.  I’m a social person after all.
  7. Be the two C’s.  Commitment and consistency. I have to commit for 6 months.  After reading some of the other bloggers achievements after completing the Yakezie Challenge I’m ready to commit for a year!
  8. The big update occurs after 6 month’s.  I have to let my peers know how far I’ve come via a forum and email update.  But I’ll do them one better and post monthly progress reports on my blog.  After all, it wouldn’t be fair to you if I didn’t include you in my goals.
  9. Once that is all and said and done.  If I break 200k in Alexa I get an opportunity to submit a form and write a Yakezie Member Post to become an official member.


  Talk about pressure.  Well as they say.  Pressure bursts pipes, but it also makes diamonds.  Time to shine baby.  Time to shine!.
