Unexpectedly Intriguing!
January 30, 2009

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this Friday, January 30, 2009 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where we've once again reviewed all the business and money-related blog carnivals on the web so that you have more time to focus on the Superbowl this weekend!

Speaking of which, several of this week's money and business blog carnivals featured a Superbowl theme. Bad mistake. There's a yellow flag down on the play. The ref says: "Roughing the reader. Ten yard penalty. Fourth down."

And so, in one short paragraph, we've hopefully demonstrated why Superbowl-themed blog carnivals are a bad thing, because that's the kind of commentary we had to weed through to find the best money and business-related blog posts of the week.

Those posts are awaiting you in the locker room below (no delay of game penalties here!...)
