The Carnival of Personal Finance – Week 40

March 20, 2006

Hi and welcome to the 40th edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance. I hope you enjoy the organized format. I recieved around 40 submissions so this was a big carnival to put together.

NOTE: If your submission isn’t included, don’t panic. I received several submissions late Sunday afternoon and evening and didn’t have time to include them. I’ll try to add them before 12:00 PM (CST).

Now, on with the carnival:

UPDATE: The entries that were late are in the shaded cells. Scroll down, you’ll see what I mean.

  8. Nice Job! I like the format. Clean and very easy on the eyes.

  9. Thanks for all the comments and the compliments on the format. It took me FOREVER to get it formatted right. It seems like there should be an easier way to make tables in HTML! There’s got to be a better way!

    Anyway, it was fun hosting this carnival.

  10. Good job with the carnival!

  11. Nice job – very clean, and a very easy to follow format.

  12. Referenced from my site.

  13. Thanks for hosting. The format is great and I agree 100% that HTML tables stink, someone needs to write a good table plugin for WordPress

  14. Great Blog! Thanks for making it ‘easy’ to read!

  15. Thanks for adding my article at the last minutes. I really appreciate your kindness 🙂

My post on the recent vote to increase in the public debt limit has a place of honor at the absolute bottom of the carnival. On the way there, you might stop to hear an opinion on good debt vs. bad debt. Next week, Financial Baby Steps hosts!  (Will the youngest bloggers get mentioned first? ) Carnival of Debt Reduction XXVII – seven posts this week, but they were all about debt reduction! I agree 100% with Personal Finance Advice’s decision to stick to the carnival’s knitting so that it doesn’t lose its focus. Among other articles, The NCN Network reports on excellent progress. Next week, Wealth Today hosts! […]
