It has been a very eventful week here at Pecuniarities, having hosted the Carnival of Debt Reduction and the first ever Carnival of Pecuniary Delights (which was a great success, if I do say so myself) from both of which I’m still recovering. If you haven’t yet checked them out, please do so! My favorite part of hosting a carnival is coming up with and working on the theme, and these 2 carnivals were no exception.
- Carnival of Pecuniary Delights No. 1: The Madoline Hatter Pecuniary Art Edition
- Carnival of Debt Reduction No. 185: The Charles Dickens Debtor’s Prison Edition
Now, onto my roundup for today.

I am excited to announce that Pecuniarities has been included in FIRE Finance’s Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs, ranking at #76. You can expect me to do all I can to make that number smaller!
We have also had the privilege of being included in the Personal Finance Category of a new site called Greatnexus, a site not unlike Alltop, of which we are also a member.
