What’s New Around The Blogosphere: December 17th, 2010

I am officially on holidays now until January 4th, which is great because now I can get some Christmas shopping done :)

We have been submitting articles to various carnivals around the web this week.  My Wealth Builder hosted The Wealth Builder Carnival, and our article on Understanding Life Insurance was included.  Yes I Am Cheap hosted the Carnival of Money Stories and included our article on Extended Warranties.  The Mighty Bargain Hunter hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance and our post on The Cost of Starting a Franchise was mentioned in the round-up.

My favorite personal finance carnival is the weekly Canadian Finance Carnival over at Canadian Finance Blog.  They included our post on How To Repair Your Credit.  Thanks to all of these great carnivals for hosting and including our submissions.
