So today is a pretty big day for me, and for this blog. On August 23, 2011 I began the Yakezie Challenge. I committed to consistent posting here on Money for College project, I committed to interacting and selflessly promoting my fellow Yakezie members, and also with sticking with this blog to ensure its future success.
Two months later, and all of that hard work has paid off because Money for College Project just broke through the 200K Alexa Ranking barrier!
This is a key milestone for the blog because it means that this blog is well on its way to reaching a wide audience. My main goal for this site is to provide valuable information to students, parents, and recent college graduates that ill help you find more money for college, and cultivate your future potential. The more popular this blog is, the more people I can reach with that message.
So, here is a huge “Thank You!” to all of you from Yakezie who have made this blog a budding success, and all of my other readers who may or may not have a clue what Yakezie is, and just enjoy the articles I post here.
In true Yakezie fashion, here are some of my favorite articles from Money for College project, around the web, and my fellow Yakezie Members!

I was constantly building forts in the woods behind our house, playing Army with my friends in our backyard, and going on treasure hunts with my sister.
