Unexpectedly Intriguing!

Carnival Midway from The Jerk This week's edition of On the Moneyed Midways rounds up the best posts from each of the blog carnivals dedicated to money and business-related matters, with one post declared to be The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)

This week's edition features a new Carnival, the recently launched Carnival of Future Millionaires (welcome aboard!) and also marks what we're declaring to be the final demise of the Festival of Job Hunting, which appears to be dead again (not to be confused with the excellent movie starring Kenneth Branaugh, Emma Thompson and Derek Jacobi!). As far as we're concerned, it's staying dead....

And now, some bad news, then some really bad news. The bad news is that the Carnival of Debt Reduction, hosted this week by Finandom, is not available as their server has been down while we have been compiling this week's edition of OMM and even now as we are posting, so there will be no contribution from the Debt Reducers for this week's carnival.

The really bad news is that the often excellent Carnival of Entrepreneurship doesn't appear to have a host this week, or any scheduled for future weeks. We hope this is just a temporary situation, as the entrepreneur's carnival often provided The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere! for OMM. We hope they don't repeat the Festival of Job Hunting's zombie-like performance....
