Today I thought I would try something different and take a stab at hosting a Personal Finance Blog Carnival started by my friend Steve Rhode over at How to Get Out of Debt. For those of you who don’t move in blogospheric circles, a blog carnival is simply a roundup of articles from various blogs, typically centered around a common topic.
I’ll admit that I was fairly selective this week and here are the posts that made the cut.
Steve Rhode presents Debt Will Kill Your Sex Life. Debt impacts more than just your wallet. Read about how your sex like goes into default when your bills do.
Steve also wants to get the word out about a new scam Certified Resolution Notice – Federal Stimulus Package – Scam, Scam, Scam

Steve from Debt Consolidation 2 u presents Consider Other Loan Alternatives before Opting for No Credit Check Payday Loan saying that Payday loans are something that you should avoid at all costs. Investigate other forms of debt before using a payday loan for short term emergencies.
Stepping away from personal finance for a moment, I have been recently been made aware that Ana Hoffman over at Traffic Generation Cafe is giving away a 30 minute consultation and a free copy of the very SEO friendly Thesis Theme for your blog. If you are thinking your blog could use a nice upgrade, I suggest you head over and check it out. In addition, her blog is awesome and one that should be in your reader anyway. I have learned quite a bit from Ana by subscribing to her blog over the last several months.
