The Carnival of Personal Finance is a weekly collection of the best personal finance articles from across the blogosphere, usually with an entertaining or thematic presentation. This week’s Carnival was published last night by the blog Four Pillars.
Check out the articles picked for Editor’s Choice but don’t miss out on The DIY Haircut and Unexpected Check, but It Wasn’t Mine to Keep. I also participated with Which Comes First: Paying Off Debt or Starting Emergency Fund?.
The Carnival, which hasn’t missed a week since it began in June 2005, is a great way to discover new writers and new blogs.
A few of the blogs that participated in that first Carnival on June 20, 2005 are still around, and they deserve some attention for sticking it out through the years.
- Bargaineering (formerly Blueprint for Financial Prosperity)
- Frugal for Life
- I Will Teach You to Be Rich
- Smart Money Daily
- AllFinancialMatters (formerly AllThingsFinancial)
- Five Cent Nickel
- My Money Blog
- Free Money Finance
- Fat Pitch Financials
- Jose Anes Weblog
Only three of the original participants no longer maintain their website or now write about a topic other than personal finance.
The schedule for the Carnival of Personal Finance through June 2009 is in the final stages of organization and should be ready to be announced within the next few days. If you are looking to participate as a host, we are accepting applications for hosting for July, August and September.
If you would like to participate in next Monday’s Carnival to be hosted at Wide Open Wallet, please submit your best article from this week for consideration.
