Four Blog Carnivals in Heat!

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:

Prime Time Money hosted The 156th Carnival of Personal Finance: Songs of Summer, letting loose the music on June 9. Here are some of the summer flings I wanted to mention:

Consumerism Commentary presents Passive Income: Real Estate? Blogging? I Don’t Think So

Free Money Finance presents How to Succeed in Your Career

My Dollar Plan presents 10 Financial Tips for New Grads

How to make $7 million in 7 years presents The Myth of Diversification

Frugal Dad presents The Dave Ramsey Babysteps: Everybody’s a Critic

Funny about Money presents How I Spent $48,346.36 on My Dogs

The Digerati Life presents Have No Estate Plan? Try This Guide to Wills & Trusts

No Credit Needed presents I Pay Myself First - And Last - And All Along The Way

Don’t miss the posts (and videos) at the rest of the Carnival! My post, What To Do With Wildly Inconsistent Stock Advice, Using China as an Example, appears under “Investing”—and right beneath the video of Bryan Adams, Summer of 69!

Festival of Frugality:

Money Ning hosted Festival of Frugality #129 - Try a Little Harder This Week Edition, doling out tips on June 10. Here’s a sampling of the frugality:

Bryce presents Things to Do in Our Lifetime

Lise presents Four Strategies That Are Frugal Only If Your Time Is Worth Nothing

Madison presents New Grads: 29 Money-Smart Tips

Mike presents Calculating the real cost of driving

Please visit the Festival! My post, Keeping Up With The Joneses Redux — Real or Imagined, is included under “Realization and Sharing.”

Carnival of Money Stories:

Bible Money Matters hosted Carnival of Money Stories #63 - Gather Round the Campfire!, starting up the s’mores on June 10. The bonfires were lit by posts like:

Money Hacker’s Carnival:
