LinkStuff for Friday, Mar 27

by Mike Holman

Busy times – I hosted the carnival of personal finance on Monday which contained 98 entries.  The theme was learn the basics of investing.  And the funny thing is that I’m hosting it again – 2 weeks later on my other blog – the ABCs of Investing.  If you are a blogger then make sure you get your picks in for that carnival nice and early – I really, really hate late submissions ie enter by Sat, Apr 4 at the latest.
