Welcome to the September 22, 2007 edition of Personal Finance Money Tips blog carnival. Blog carnivals are a great way for bloggers to recognize each other’s efforts, organize blog posts around important topics, and improve the overall level of conversation in the blogosphere. Carnivals come in edited “editions”, just like magazines or journals. The fact that carnivals are edited (and usually annotated) collections of links lets them serve as “magazines” within the blogosphere, and carnival hosts can earn their readership by providing high quality collections.
There are a total of 53 articles submitted through this carnival submission form, but only 37 are shortlisted to be published here. In those previous blog carnivals hosted here, I didn’t eliminate any entry and it might give you a hard time to find the best articles. There are even some commercial articles with high sales pitch found. I apologize to those who didn’t make it through. I hope this will enhance your reading experience.
