Week in Review: Yogurt, E-Book and More

by Kay Lynn

A couple of weeks ago I received an email inviting me to attend a Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt tasting at the Westfield North County Mall in Escondido.  Well since this is brand I normally buy, the $25 gift certificate offered was a bonus.

I attended yesterday but you can still go today for your free sample, coupons and a fun game with prizes.  There’s a booth that blows up paper yogurts and other pictures.  If you can grab 5 of the yogurt pictures before the time is up you get a free reusable bag with 4-packs of yogurt.  There are prizes even if you don’t get that magic number.

E-Book and Yakezie News

My friend, Craig Ford, from Money Help for Christians, released his budgeting e-book this week to great acclaim. Through tomorrow, you can buy The Secret to a Successful Budget for 30% off. I am not an affiliate but know it’s a good source if you need help in this area.

This week at Yakezie.com the first five member profiles were published. Check it out to learn more about this week’s featured bloggers.

Hi Kay Lynns,

Thanks for highlighting the latest Yakezie Member Posts! How’s it going with that one initiative on the social community you were thinking of? You mentioned you talked to & know the CEO?

Hope all is well! Good to see you on the Yakezie.com Forums! Pls let me know if there are any bugs. I might just have an ad campaign opportunity for you.

Cheers, Sam

Sam, I didn’t know if we were ready to pursue that. I will f/up on Blogfrog and let you know.

The forums were easy to use and I didn’t see any problems so far!
