While trying to name this carnival, I searched on Wikipedia with 6th November but, couldn’t find any worth mentioning incident. Finally I have decided to name it ‘just another day’ and talk about Yakezie group. About pictures, I searched through my personal album and picked three pics from our Cruise trip to Bahamas on Carnival Cruise lines.
I have hosted Yakezie carnivals twice previously and noticed that they get visits from Yakezies and non-Yakezies alike. This is the best stage to talk about some of the benefits of Yakezie group.
If you are a blogger and write about personal finance or lifestyle, Yakezie is the place you want to be. The biggest benefit I have so far, is the zeal and interest to continue blogging. Leaving apart the technical blog related help, knowing other bloggers’ little success stories motivate you like anything.
Knowledge grows by sharing, in Yakezie our slogan is to ‘Selflessly helping others‘. You have a problem, mention it on forum and 20 other bloggers would jump in to help you. Yakezie has 90 members as of date and another 90 (almost) as challengers waiting to become member, including us.
If appraised for its future potential, the value of yakezie brand should surpass almost all of the established personal finance blogs. First, its most powerful as it represents around 200 blogs, and second, it’s unique in personal finance blogosphere, Yakezie is community of bloggers, there is no competitor around and thus it has the monopoly.
Let’s begin the ‘just another’ Yakezie carnival now.
