Welcome to the 159th edition of the Best of Money Carnival. This is third time I am hosting Best of Money Carnival here. One good aspect of hosting this carnival is you get to read blog posts you otherwise would miss.
Being in Miami, I can’t escape the heat. I want to see Heat lifting NBA title. Kevin (from Oklahoma city) is a tough guy to beat but, Miami Has James, Wade and Bosh! I can’t wait to see the parade on Biscayne Blvd, following a Heat title win, it has been quiet a few years since a parade was conducted on that road.
It was a difficult task selecting top 10 from 100 posts. I hope I didn’t do much injustice. Enjoy the posts!
Top pick - Familymoneyvalues presents Financial Fables: A Mouse in the Cellar posted at Family Money Values. This is quiet different blog post than regular ones. Parents can immediately narrate this one to their children, story is too good to forget in their lifetime. Straight away winner leaving other posts miles behind. This masterpiece is described modestly as “This is my first attempt at financial fable writing. I hope you can see the moral of the story. Please enjoy and share the knowledge with another.” by the blogger, Mary.
Rest of the entries are not ranked as per merit, they are just in the top 10 and ranked as per the submission date.
Third – Dividend Growth Investor presents The Most Successful Dividend Investors of all time posted at Dividend Growth Investor. I did some research and uncovered several successful dividend investors, whose stories provide reassurance that the traits of successful dividend investing are indeed accurate. This goes to show that buy and hold investing in a diversified dividend portfolio that compounds for several decades can generate a sufficient income stream that would allow the investor to reach financial independence.
Fourth – Daniel presents Reevaluating Your Wireless Service posted at Sweating the Big Stuff. Do you spent too much on your wireless service? These people are perfect examples of why you should reevaluate your plan today!
Fifth – Corey presents Cost of Being in Someone Else’s Wedding posted at 20s Finances. Do you have any close friends getting married soon? Have they asked you to be in their wedding? Do you know how much it will cost you to say yes? I was in a friend’s wedding in December and will be in another wedding in June. Between those two weddings and having 3 other weddings to attend in the next few months, I have weddings on the mind.
Sixth – Steve presents The Only Impediment to Change Is Yourself posted at Brip Blap. Don’t think that next year will be the year you can finally get fit, or get out of this dead-end job, or start paying down that debt, or get around to skydiving or writing that novel or having kids or…well, whatever.
Seventh – Jeff Rose presents Best Short Term Investments For Your Money Right Now posted at Good Financial Cents. In such an unstable market, short term investing may be a safer alternative for investors. Short term investing allows investors to invest their money with little or no risk, while knowing their money is not going to be tied up for long periods of time.
Eighth – Philip presents Start a Christmas Tree Farm posted at PT Money Personal Finance. Another idea for making additional money: Christmas tree farms. This interview includes information such as the bare minimum needed to begin, land acquisition, and how you can actually make money selling Christmas trees.
Ninth – Jeremy presents Overcoming Unemployment Challenges posted at Modest Money. As many of you know I’ve been unemployed the whole time I’ve been running this blog. Now find out about the struggles I’ve had to overcome to rejoin the world of the employed.
Tenth – Glen Craig presents Victim of Identity Theft? Here Are Your Next Steps to Protect Yourself posted at Free From Broke . “Once you get over the shock in being a victim of identity theft you have some steps you need to take. See what they are so you can make sure your credit is protected.”
