The round-up is in its 3rd week now, and already it has become one of the biggest Yakezie round ups, excluding the carnivals.
BTW, if you want to know all about carnivals, there is a full-page of wealth awaiting for your mouse (PC) or finger (smart phone) click, 🙂 Broke professional has that page. Many thanks to her for the tedious job she did to bring this page up.
This week the number of blogs participating in this round-up is 25, an awesome increase from first week’s 7 blogs. With new bloggers signing up every day, we will see further increase in coming weeks. If this continues, one fine day I can claim this round-up as the web’s biggest weekly blog round-up 🙂
Tip: One money saving tip for home business owners, consider online fax for your business.
What are challenging Yakezies are saying over the past week?
Untemplater (Alexa 113K) discusses the relationship of manager and subordinate. She shares her view of the performance evaluation process. Most of us, the bloggers, are amateurs and have day job to keep, it is important that we cover the issues with work with same importance as issues related to saving money.
Amazing Crystal @ How I make Money Blogging (Alexa 622K) shares her secrets behind posting daily, I thought she posts six hourly!
New inclusion, Our Journey To Zero (Alexa 985K) has one of the sweetest articles of the round-up Playing In the rain. I am sure the feel good factor in his blog will take him a long way.
John at Stock Market Basics (Alexa 704K) gives us the answer we often look for in Google, what apps I should down load to my new smart phone? I am planning to download a few free ones from his list.
Pat @ Compounding Returns (Alexa 250K) talks about everything you need to know to start a small business, I like her style of mentioning next week’s blog, it creates an anticipation. Unlike us, who prefers to keep the up coming blog topics a secret.
JTM @ Money Mamba (Alexa 193k) has an article that establishes the fact that buying online saves energy, and I agree to him completely.
Tight Fisted Miser (Alexa 224K) gives importance to rationalization of spending, he talks about living within means and not buying on credit, he encourages thoughts from his readers.
Money In The 20s (Alexa 108k) listed best paying college degrees. If you are still in school, perhaps this one you need to look at.
Beatrice at Sustainable Life Blog (Alexa 286k) started preparing for triathlon, she finished last year, she wants to do better this year, wish her all the best.
Hunter at Financially Consumed (Alexa 110K) explains quiet well as to why you can’t make profit out of the insurance coverage, its actually a zero sun game.
Online Investing AI (Alexa 530k) reviews a book named ‘Trend Commandments”, which talks about stock investment strategy.
Frugal Student (Alexa 550K) talking about tips to pay less interest on student loan, short and precise article.
Lisa @ Cents To Save (Alexa 324k) is busy with new job, she gave a sneak peek in to her busy life.
Debt free By Thirty (Alexa 215k) talks about the spending a retiree do after retirement, nice twist on a subject which is seldom covered in blog world.
Family Money values (Alexa 185k) also ponders on what she could do had she got $1M on hand. What happened to you bloggers!
The University Of Money (Alexa 11.4M) ponders on the Jim Cramer’s stock picks.
Matt at The Financial Excellence (Alexa 285k) is actually a financial coach, he shares a tips to cope up with drop in income.
The million dollar virus caught on to Khaleef @ Fat Guy Skinny Wallet (Alexa 168k) and he also listed what he could do with $1M windfall. Seriously, I would have bought a fast food franchise with that money!
Paula at Afford Anything (Alexa 287k) gives valuable budgeting tips to small business owners. I would have followed her advise had I got that $1M every one is talking about, I would have needed that for my franchise business.
The Broke Professional (Alexa 212k) covers one of my favorite topic, how to excel at work. I liked the way she mentioned about the ways to cope with a job you don’t like.
36 Months (Alexa 555k) in a short and crisp post emphasizes on Vacationing on a budget. She refers to her trips to Montreal and Boston.
Last but not the least we should all stand up and give salute to Rauterkus for her amazing daily diary of 365 days on Budget (Alexa 778K) she ended her 365th day and announced her intention to quit blogging, as her saga of a 365 days is now over. I am sad to see her go.
Now, something about One Cent At A Time, On Monday July 11th I had my biggest blog day, I had 212 page views, which is the highest in my blogging history. Alexa dropped to 390K, I know that taking Alexa further down will be a bit challenge.
Few of my projects at work are also going in for production deployment, I will be more busy at work for a few coming weeks and regular schedule of writing might get impacted.
I am also starting to get a feeling that I have created a small but dedicated follower base, who never comment but always read my posts, I request them to start participating in the discussion.
Do remember to follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook, and subscribe to my RSS feed, coz’ I will help you.
great round up! and as always, thanks for the props!
You are welcome Jana!

Thanks for including me in your roundup, SB, lots of great blogs to check out!
Broke Professionals says
Thanks for including us.
I am one of the “lurkers” I always read your post, but don’t comment much (in any blogs actually). Now that we have the Yakezie summer teams, I will try to comment more.
glad to finally get your comment 🙂

Financial Samurai says
Nice job with the wrap! Looks like you are networking very well and showing a big ramp in your site!
Thanks Sam, actually a little bit excited to discover what i really love doing, writing, after 11 years of looking into intricacies of Java code 🙂
Financial Samurai says
Tell me more about Java code! Does that help in figuring out how to edit your blog and mess around with the inner code?
I’m a total moron when it comes to code, and need help all the time. Or at least guidance.
Sam to play with WordPress files, you need to know PHP, I in-fact messed with php files without knowing this language.
