Blog Gala Times Three!

If you haven’t yet, please check out my hosting of Money Hacks Carnival #12 — The Twelve Labours of Heracles! Past that, Can I Get Rich On A Salary participated in three personal-finance blog carnivals this past week.

[Editor’s Note: In case you are not familiar with blog carnivals, a blog carnival is a multi-blog event in which a number of bloggers aggregate their articles within a certain theme or subject area into one post. The “host” of the carnival writes up the post on his or her blog and includes links to the various articles. Hopefully, this helps readers as they get a “one stop shop” of articles. I post a weekly recap of the blog carnivals in which I have participated—and try also to cull out a few articles that I’d like to share with you here.]

Carnival of Personal Finance:

Money Under Thirty hosted Carnival of Personal Finance #152, speaking out for the twenty-somethings on March 12. I’ll mention some of the posts I enjoyed, as written up at the Carnival:

Shuchong from But WHY Doesn’t It Grow on Trees reflects on financial lessons learned from mom, and Finance Girl from Finance Gets Personal wrote about giving mom an experience for Mother’s Day

Lazy Man and Money shows you how to snowflake an emergency fund

Mom from Wide Open Wallet writes about why what you drive does not equal what you are worth in Millionaires Drive Minivans

Also, my apologies. The comment spam coming into this blog has really been on the rise, and the word verification feature does not seem to be slowing it down very well. So for now, I am trying the addition of a registration (OpenID/Google/similar) requirement for leaving comments.
