It’s time for another roundup of great articles from the previous week!


The Yakezie Network includes some of the top personal finance blogs around! Today is the last day to enter the Yakezie Scholarship. So, please head over and read the details. If you qualify, then please apply, if not, then please forward the information to someone whom you know that qualifies.

Also, my Yakezie Member Post is up on the site (in case you don’t have enough to read already ;-)), so please take a few minutes to read about my background and leave a comment!

A special thanks to everyone who has helped to drop my Alexa ranking to 52,502 (as of Sunday 12/05/10)! Now my new goal is to get under 50k by Christmas. This will take a lot of effort from me and help from all of you. Just install the Alexa toolbar and visit my site often (might as well make it your home page ;-) ), if you want to help!

Thank you for mentioning me in your roundup and for BLASTING though the challenge. You’ve really done very, very well. I’m so proud.

Sorry but I have been suffering from bronchitis lately while trying to avoid pneumonia so I have not been particularly active. I can’t get a deep lung full of air and it makes me so dizzy. I’m glad that I had scheduled a few of my giveaway posts in advance. Thanks for helping me to promote them.
