Looking to branch out and read some more posts by other great personal finance bloggers? Well, we aim to please here at brokeGIRLrich. The Yakezie Carnival is brought to you to by the network of personal finance bloggers of the Yakezie. You can submit articles at Blogger Carnivals.
What is the Yakezie? Despite sounding a lot like a Chinese or Japanese drug cartel, it’s actually a network of established personal finance bloggers. If you are a personal finance blogger, you can apply to join the network over at the Yakezie website.
If you are not a personal finance blogger and just like to read personal finance blogs, a blogger with the Yakezie badge has already been around for several months and completed the Yakezie challenge to join the network. If you see a blogger with a Yazkezie Challenge icon on their blog, they’re in the process of trying to join the network.
Looking for even more personal finance posts to read or interested in giving your own posts a little more exposure? I also host a personal finance link up every Saturday that runs through the weekend. You can join the party and add your own posts here.
