This week, I had the opportunity to host the Best of Money Carnival. What is this carnival business? Basically, it’s a “traveling” showcase of the Top 10 Best Articles in Money from around the blogosphere. By showcasing top content on various blogs, readers are introduced to new bloggers and ideas on a weekly basis. There were so many great articles submitted this week so narrowing it down to the top 10 was very tough:
