Yakezie Thursday

Yakezie Thursday 6/3/10

YakezieThank you to everyone that has helped me increase my Alexa ranking. I’m currently at 634,289. That is so great, just 2 weeks ago I was at 1,059,759. I’m closing in on my goal of 450,000 by July 4th. Please help me to reach that goal by getting the Alexa Toolbar for free and visiting my blog as much as you can. It’s so close I can taste it…mmmmm donuts. Anyways it’s Thursday so on to the Yakezie.

@LeanLifeCoach – Dave Ramsey Was Wrong!

I love this post because of the lesson learned. “We don’t believe we are capable of repairing an appliance, starting a business or completing a challenging task so we never try. Instead we pay someone else to do things we can do for ourselves.” This is so true. You are capable of more that you think. The best thing you can do is try, the worst thing you can do is not.

@MoneyBeagle – Another Twitter Success Story

This is a great story about how using new technology can get your problems with companies solved.

@FinancialSamura – Is Becoming A Millionaire The Rule Rather Than The Exception? 

I think there are a lot of people out there that that make enough money but don’t know how to use it so they don’t become millionaires. This post goes into why there are probably more millionaires than people think. It also cites a great post at The Amateur Financier so give that a read as well.

@Little House in the Valley – Tuesday Tips, Week 12

This is a great tip about using cloth instead of paper towels. I’m thinking about switching, how about you?

  • There are lots of bloggers who put up link posts, but from what I’ve seen, only a few of them actually bother to blurb the links. They fail to explain why on earth the audience is supposed to click and learn/receive.

    Also, re: the Dave Ramsey being wrong issue. Dave Ramsey’s advice for an emergency fund is excellent, excellent advice. I don’t know there’s any way around that; the consequences of not saving aren’t just felt by people who don’t save. Those people then need enormous help from everyone else.
