Unexpectedly Intriguing!
September 8, 2006

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this week's edition of On the Moneyed Midways, the only place on the web where you can catch up with the best posts from the ever-fracturating (our word describing the combination of fracturing and saturating) world of blog carnivals related to business and money matters. What's more, we award one post each week with the title of being: The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)

We had hoped that the world of blog carnivals would give us somewhat of a break this week, since the Labor Day holiday should theoretically mean fewer posts per carnival as bloggers are enjoying the long weekend in the U.S. Unfortunately, the extra time off from work seems only have led to more posts at more carnivals! Scroll down for a sampling of this week's fare....
