The Yakezie Alexa Challenge — I’m All In!
It’s hard to believe, but Rainy-Day Saver will be celebrating its 2-year anniversary in MAY. I first started this blog as an outlet for my thoughts about finance and personal going-ons, but it’s evolved into so much more — a community of great readers and fellow bloggers. Thank you so much for reading — I hope you enjoy reading these posts and much as I enjoy writing them!
Sam over at Financial Samurai
has come up with an excellent promotional challenge to help us personal finance bloggers really move up in the rankings — the Alexa
rankings, to be exact. The Samurai Yakezie Challenge
is a way for bloggers to go from average to extraordinary.
I decided to enter Rainy-Day Saver into the challenge, aiming to breach the 200,000 mark in Alexa rankings. Many other fantastic bloggers are in on the challenge; I hope to post a list mentioning each one individually by next weekend.
Since joining a few short weeks ago, Rainy-Day Saver was originally ranked 1,305,476 but has shot all the way up to 944,782! While these are still what my father would call “telephone numbers,” I think it’s a pretty good sign that RDS is moving up the charts and into people’s hearts.
Much thanks to Daniel at Sweating the Big Stuff for tracking all of the stats in his nifty charts, Eliminate the Muda for creating the sweet Yakezie Challenge badges, and Sam at Financial Samurai for getting us all super-motivated!
