Yakezie Roundup #10

Welcome to the tenth weekend roundup at Free Money Wisdom!  I have some great updates and some awesome links to share with you.  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.  I had a very busy work week and barely had time to work on this website!

So, I’m going about my normal day on Friday and hot the gym like usual.  Well, during my post-lift cardio session, I had a “light-bulb” experience.  These experiences are not rare by the way.  I swear some of my best ides come to me during cardio sessions lol.

Anyways, I was thinking about the one thing that would make this blog great.  Not just great, but truly great.  Then it hit me.  I have seriously been slacking on providing you, the reader with quality personal content.  By that, I mean that I have neglected my posting and have had one too many guest posts.  Part of this is laziness on my part.  Or maybe I’ve been too busy and haven’t managed my time very well…  Either or, I have failed in terms of my content.

I’m going to focus my energy going forward on my writing.  Not link building, not socializing, and not wasting my time.  Writing is going to be my focus.  I have so many life experiences to share with you so I’m pumped about that!  Even better though, these life experiences can teach you how to manage your money in a God glorifying, wise way.  It’s a win win.  I’m also thrilled to get to know more of you better.  If you’re reading this, feel free to email me and ask me questions or just email me to make a new friend.  I want to be known for my “open door” policy and keeping the conversation going.  You excited or what!

Now, onto the weekend roundup!  I found some really solid articles from the Yakezie network this past week and couldn’t help but include them.  I learned a lot from these articles and I’m sure you will too.  Happy reading:
