Hello, and welcome to the Carnival of Twenty Something Finances for June 16th, 2008! I’m Stephanie, and I’ll be your host as we highlight articles and posts from around the web-o-sphere that pertain to money matters for Generation Y.
And I have to tell you, this opportunity to act as host has sent me on a POWER TRIP!
That’s right, I’m hijacking the power given to me as the Editor of the carnival, and using it to rank the submissions sent in to me. Normally, you don’t see this level of competition and favoritism in a blog carnival. But I feel that by ranking the posts and weeding them out to the good, better, and best, I’m doing a service both to the writers of the articles, and to the readers of the carnival. So let’s GO!
