Blog Carnivals Four, For, and Fore!

Can I Get Rich On A Salary participated in four 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:

Consumerism Commentary hosted Carnival of Personal Finance #157: Third Anniversary Edition, blowing out the birthday candles on June 16. Here are some posts from the Carnival I wanted to mention:

Moolanomy has the Financial IQ Test

One Caveman’s Financial Journey presents Enjoy a Romantic Summer Getaway For Less

Stephanie from Poorer Than You presents Graduating? Make a Budget Without Hurting Yourself

Other Mentions

I thought I’d start listing out other mentions of Can I Get Rich On A Salary, outside of blog carnivals, from the immediately preceding week. But since this is the first time I’m doing it, I think I’ll go back two weeks (or thereabouts)!

Thanks to all of these great personal-finance blogs for noticing these Can I Get Rich On A Salary posts and bringing them to the attention of their readers. Please visit their blogs!

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.
