Unexpectedly Intriguing!
09 April 2010

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, April 9, 2010 edition of On the Moneyed Midways! We're still the one place you can go every week to find the best posts contributed to each of the past week's blog carnivals dedicated to the topics of business and money matters!

We have a very short edition this week, since it has turned out to be one of those weeks where many of the biweekly and monthly blog carnivals we cover are in-between their regular editions. So, if you had your heart set on being able to read through a much more extensive blog carnival, we'll point you toward this week's Cavalcade of Risk, which we hosted earlier this week and where we applied our unique blog-post rating system for every post that was contributed. Plus, we built a special tool for the Cavalcade as our own contribution to the topic of risk.

But, per our rules for OMM, none of our posts are eligible for being either Absolutely essential reading or being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!

The posts that do qualify for those titles, and the rest of the best posts we found in the week that was, are just a mouse click away....
