The Wealth Builder Carnival #61

Welcome to the sixty-first edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:

If you want to make money by starting a blog, you need to make sure that it’s (1) interesting/useful for the readers and (2) marketable for advertisements."

Lazy Man and Money presents Robert Kiyosaki and Multi-Level Marketing Exposed! posted at Lazy Man and Money, saying, "Today, I'd like to share some thoughts on the business of MLM and pair that with well-known personality Robert Kiyosaki, co-author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad. As you can tell from the title, this is going to be a little harsh on Kiyosaki, but keep in mind that Rich Dad, Poor Dad was major motivation for me to begin this blog."

Insuring and Protecting

Kyle Berks presents Why Is Https:// Important When Submitting Your Financial Information Online? posted at Online Payday Loan Companies Reviewed For Your Safety, saying, "Knowing that your social security number is secure between your web browser and the website you are submitting your information on is extremely important.

Dividends4Life presents 6 High-Dividend, Low P/E Value Stocks posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Before the Internet and even before computers, critical financial information was printed daily in newspapers. Though many newspaper still print this information, most people find it easier (and faster) to get information on their stocks from financial websites. So back when financial information was a tedious and manual process what was considered relevant enough to warrant inclusion?"

Great carnival with so many informative posts. I found Lazy Man's post about Robert Kiyosaki especially interesting - I often question the value of some of these mass marketed business books so it was great to see this piece.

Thanks for organizing it,
