Unexpectedly Intriguing!
10 January 2008

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to Part II of this special edition of On the Moneyed Midways, in which we feature the top blogs we discovered in 2007 while reviewing the best of the blogosphere's business and money-related blog carnivals! This edition follows up Part I, in which we identified the top eight posts and The Best Post of the Year, Anywhere! for 2007.

But before we go any further, do you want to know what's weird? Last year, when we selected the top blogs we found in 2006, we ended up with a list of twenty, despite working with the philosophy that "there are as many as there are," which we would suspect wouldn't produce such a round number. In fact, at the time, we chalked it up purely to coincidence.

And then in selecting 2007's top blogs, doing so once again with the philosophy that "there are as many as there are," it turns out that have an even ten. And we're not trying to find the top 20 or the top 10 or even the top 5 - there are, simply, as many as there are!

Weird? You bet. But you won't be disappointed. They all deserve a place as being among the best blogs out there and just accidentally happen to be the top ten we found in 2007!
