Double-Shot of Blog Carnivals

Can I Get Rich On A Salary participated in two 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.]

Comments are what make lots of blogs go 'round. Thank you for participating in this blog by adding a comment!

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.
