Welcome to the Yakezie Chichi (Father) weekly review.
It’s been a great week. My kids finished an outstanding academic school year, and began summer vacation with a massive neighborhood super-soaker fight.
It’s always great to get a little recognition. I was very happy that an article I wrote for Sustainable Personal Finance was the Editor’s Pick at Totally Money Blog Carnival #23. Thank you to the team at Spruce Up Your Finances for this honor.
The blog is growing rapidly, thanks to you. Daily site traffic sets a new record every other day, and the Alexa ranking is steadily improving. As of today, Financially Consumed is the 156,204th most active site on the internet. You will also notice some advertisements as you browse the site. Hopefully these will help to pay for our operating costs.
Please enjoy some of the very best articles from the Yakezie Network, selflessly helping others.
