Unexpectedly Intriguing!
19 November 2010

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this Friday, November 19, 2010 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where each week, we present the best posts we found in the best of the past week's money and business-related blog carnivals!

This week's edition of OMM started out pretty much the same way that all editions of OMM have come together since our inaugural edition back on March 3, 2006. For this week, we reviewed nine business or money-related blog carnivals, and one whose edition we missed last week, of which five carnivals made our initial quality control cut for consideration. We then read through several dozen posts in seeking the best post presented in each.

It was the sheer quality of the posts we ultimately selected that really struck us this week. We recognized that each of the posts we selected as being the top contributions made to their respective carnivals would, in a typical week for OMM, qualify for the title of being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!

That *never* happens. Or at least, it had never happened before.

But this week clearly wasn't typical. It was, quite literally, the best week ever for OMM.

So we marked the occasion by naming all but one of our selected posts as being Absolutely essential reading!, the title we award to posts that are near-contenders for being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!

As for the remaining post, well, that is The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!.

Don't just take our word for it. Judge for yourself - the best week we've ever had for OMM all begins.... now!
