Yakezie Thursday

Yakezie Thursday 5/27/10

”TheIf you didn’t see my previous post about me joining the Yakezie Challenge check it out here. Check out what the Yakezie are about here. I currently have a friendly battle with Cheapskate Sandy to see who can get the highest Alexa ranking by July 4th. You can see the accepting of this battle in the comments of this post. If you want to help me out, get the Alexa toolbar here and visit my site often. Alexa is sort of like the Nielson ratings but for the internet.  As of this writing, she’s up by about 20,000. Thanks for all of you that help me out and thanks for reading. Anyways, back on topic. The Yakezie are a great group of bloggers, so every Thursday I’m going to be featuring some of their great posts that catch my eye.

@PFbythebook – Things People Accomplished at Your Age

I think it’s pretty inspiring to see what others have accomplished by a certain age. This post gives great examples and even a link to see more peoples accomplishments at different ages.

@BFinance – MBA Course: Investing & Portfolio Management-Class 1

I like this article because she is actually summarizing what she is teaching her students. It’s pretty interesting. I’m going to be following the rest of the class for sure.

@Money_Reasons – We Have It Easy, Remembering Debtor’s Prison

I think because we have it easy we don’t worry about the consequences so much. If we had debtor’s prison today I’m sure this financial; crisis we’re in wouldn’t be near as bad.

@ Simple Life In FranceTechnology and entertainment making us unhappy?

This article really makes you think about how family life has changed with technology. I believe technology has contributed to family’s creating a lasting bond. But in all actuality, the parents should set up a time for them to create that bond every day. Eating at the dinner table is a great time for that.

@MoreStyleTCash – 25 More (Inexpensive) Ideas to Give Your Life Luxury

I think this is a great post with excellent Ideas. I’m definitely going to give some of them a try. My favorite is #5. I don’t have a backyard yet, but I’ll try it out on my patio.

@ The Amateur FinancierDeep Thoughts: The Poverty Line

This is a very insightful post on how the poverty line was created and how it is outdated. I agree, as with all older “rules”, that it needs to be updated to reflect the changes in society.
