Unexpectedly Intriguing!
09 June 2006

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Today, two new carnivals join On the Moneyed Midways' weekly roundup of the best posts from the blogosphere's major money-related blog carnivals! Kay Bell of Don't Mess with Taxes hosts the inaugural edition of the Carnival of Taxes, while we've finally gotten around to adding the Carnival of Personal Development, which offers many posts that may benefit an individual's career path.

Gone however is the Carnival of Job Hunting, which appears to have died a quick death after just three editions (the last edition, which we covered last week, came during the Memorial Day holiday and only featured one post.) The related Carnival of Career Intensity, while gone this week, should be back as David Lorenzo only suffered server issues!

But enough about who's in and who's out this week! Below are the best posts of the week, as well as the post we've scientifically determined to be The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)
