Welcome to the 29th edition of the Aspiring Blogger – Personal Finance Carnival. For the first time in a LONG while, the carnival is a little shorter today. I think all the weather issues have people too cold to submit to blog carnivals? Either that, or their internet isn’t working? Whatever the reason, I’ll take quality over quantity any day of the week. I hope you enjoy reading the posts, hopefully you’ll find a few that you love!
While you’re here, make sure to read as many of the posts as you can – I know it would be difficult for you to read all of them – but please do if you feel like it! If you’re interested in participating in the next blog carnival, you can find out details here or submit your post here! Thanks for stopping by!
