Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome again to this week's edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where we round 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)

Since this week covered the Fourth of July holiday, several carnivals were on hiatus, including the popular Festival of Frugality, but we uncovered two new carnivals to fill the gap: The Carnival of Home Business and the monthly Carnival of Taxes. So just scroll on down for all the best business and money blogging in the week that was the first week of July 2006!
