Although I have been blogging for more than three years now, I still feel like a rookie when I find out that there are important players in the blog world of which I have been completely ignorant. Recently, I learned that there are folks who work hard to gather blog posts relevant to certain types of readers, and assemble them on a site called a Blog Carnival. I was thrilled to get this lesson after being included on two blog carnivals in ten days.
First, let me thank the Baby Boomers U.S. carnival for including my post entitled, Here’s What Your Parents Are Facing. By definition, these folks gather posts that are relevant to 25 percent of the U.S. population. It’s not every carnival that can boast that it’s relevant to more than 100 million people in the english speaking world. Many thanks, Baby Boomers U.S.. I’m sold.
Then, today, One Cent at a Time included my post entitled Three Dangerous Words, about how the vast majority of investment scamsters look like they’d die before they did anything dishonest. Checking out OCAAT, I found tips on budgeting, frugality, debt, taxes, investing, you name it. Please give them a look if, like the rest of us 99 percenters, you are trying to make your dollar go further and your nest egg grow bigger, safely.
Having discovered the joy of blog carnivals, let me throw the topic open here. If you have other carnivals that IW readers should check out, please leave the addresses in a comment. And please visit those listed above. You’ll find them both to be terrific tools for finding relevant posts quickly.
