The Carnival of Investing

Now that there are Carnivals for Capitalists, Personal Finance, Debt Reduction, and Frugal Living; I was thinking to myself today that if there were two more out there Investing and Money, I would be happy as a clam.

Therefore, I am announcing The Carnival of Investing (think booming announcer voice). Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, money markets, options, alternative investments: predictions, strategies, scams, stories, starting out, books, a little bit of levity, and more. Erudite analysis and a minimum of pedantic blather. All this, centered around the topic of Investing.

Submission Guidelines:
Submissions are due Sunday at 4pm Eastern Time. You may submit one self written article and one article from the web each week.

For Blog Entries:
Simply write as you normally would and then either use a submit form (at conservative cat or blogcarnivals.com) or send the following information to investingcarnival NOSPAM (at) gmail.com.

Please include the following:
  • Your name or pen name
  • The name of your blog
  • The title of your post
  • The topic of your post - whatever categories you like so long as they are about investing
  • The permanent link to your post
  • A brief summary of the article you have written
As always a link back to that week's carnival is appreciated.

For articles on the web:
If you find a worthwhile article on the net. You can submit it to the carnival regardless of whether you have written a post about it. Any article you submit must be open to the public (no WSJ premium content). To do so please include the following:
  • Your name or pen name
  • The title of the article you are referencing
  • The topic of the article - whatever categories you like so long as they are about investing
  • A link to the article
  • A brief summary of the article
  • If you have written a post about it, include your analysis.

Hosting Guidelines:
As is common practice, anyone who participates in the carnival is eligible to host. If you would like to host, write to retireat30_NOSPAM_@gmail.com with the subject line "Hosting Carnival of Investing." Once you are on the list you have to wait until the date of your hosting to sign up again (so that others can have a chance to sign up). PLEASE include the most recent carnival you submitted to so I can verify your eligibility to host without searching through the archives.

The carnival should be posted by 9am Eastern Time on Mondays so that we can get a full weeks worth of procrastination out of the posts. Hosts are asked to put blog articles above web articles and to clearly differentiate between the two. Of course, a link back here is always appreciated.

We'll see how having both blog posts and web articles in a carnival goes. If it isn't working out, then they will be removed. I have the domain investingcarnival.com reserved and if this catches any momentum all things pertaining to the Carnival of Investing will be moved over there.
