  1. I, for one, like the format…and I had no idea that the washington post started talking about the InterWebs before anyone else.

    There’s a great clip somewhere on youtube of Katie Couric on the Today show in the 90′s talking about this Internet thing. The whole cast isn’t sure what to make of it. Really funny!

  2. Wow huge carnival participation! and a pretty awesome round up

  3. I like the format as well. Thanks for the inclusion. I really enjoyed the “My Own Advisor” post on Swedroe’s views. I have to say that I side with him. Just because you work for a company doesn’t mean you have “news” i.e. info that Wall Street don’t have. In fact, you probably have less. Still, Mark et. al, will probably do ok with their well diversified, dividend payers that they know well as long as they stick with them over long periods of time where they will experience under performance.

  4. Great Round Up MC. I’m honored to have made your cut! Thank you for focusing on things that we might not know. It is great to use your blog for education!

  5. Julie @ Freedom 48 says:

  6. Nice roundup and thanks for the Untemplater mention! I am a fan of the new format. :) And that’s a really cute pic btw. -Sydney

  7. MC, I like your creative touch. Thanks for sharing great links.

  8. Great new format. I really like it. Great way to spin the titles. I say keep it up. Hope you have a great weekend.

  9. Love the creative format and education. Thanks for the mention!

  10. I got the smiley face! Do I get a big prize package? Is my next step the Moneycone Showcase Showdown?

    The next format rocks. It digs into the meat of each story a little, making me curious what it’s about. I’m annoyed you thought of it instead of me!

  11. Great new look!

    Wow, killer roundup. Thanks very much for the mention!

    Stay in touch!

  12. Excellent format! It was interesting to read, and I’ll definitely have to check out a few!

  13. I love the format of this round up. Additionally, I was thrilled to see myself included and totally frustrated that my “google alerts” or trackbacks didn’t inform me of the listing!!!

  14. Super roundup & I like your comments! Funny about the internet thing. I keep trying to keep our eating out to a minimum. Being on a diet helps with that! lol I’m looking forward to your next roundup, MC!
