Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money Lucky 13 Edition

by Credit Card Wisdom on January 19, 2011

Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money Lucky 13 Edition When I started the Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money last September, I knew absolutely nothing about running a carnival. Over the past few months, I’ve learned a bit about how to (and a great deal about how not to!) run a carnival. It really requires a lot of effort and I truly appreciate the support I’ve received from friends of the carnival, two of which I’ve already featured in the Prime Time and Cash Editions.

Next week, I’ll resume my coverage of blogs I’ve come to know and admire over the past few months, but this week, I wanted to see if anyone had an idea of how best to rename the carnival. The Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money describes the subject matter I want to focus on, but it really is a mouthful. I spent a grand total of five minutes thinking about the name when I set the carnival up. But now that its hit double digits in editions, I’m thinking of dropping either saving or money from the name. If you have an opinion as to which is better, please let me know.

And thus ends my weekly ramble. Now on to this week’s winners.
