Yakezie Carnival: Networking Edition

by Kay Lynn

Proud Member of the Yakezie Network

It’s my turn to host the carnival for the Yakezie Network.  What a ride it’s been joining  forcing with some of the best personal finance blogs.  Since March I moved to the top 50 blogs on the Wise Bread list, made friends, earn more plus learned a whole lot.   New challengers are welcome!

One of the best things about this group is the support.  It would be impossible to give back as much as I receive, but I’m trying.

I hope you enjoy reading this week’s submissions as much as I did.  They’re grouped by networking principles.

Set Goals

In order to measure the effectiveness of networking, set measurable goals.  Each Yakezie member sets an Alexa ranking goal.
