Kids and Money — December 30, 2008

Welcome to the December 30, 2008 edition of Kids and Money.

This is our last K&M for 2008. This experiment has been a satisfying one, and trying at times too. What with all the issues with Blog Carnival (being down many of the times we tried to use it), being sick with colds, flu, and other infections for most of the last quarter of the year, and the economy being what it is, this has been a challenging — yet very fruitful nonetheless — year.

I genuinely thank each and every one of you for your thoughtful, kind, inspirational, and informative posts! I hope you’ve benefited, too, from the exposure to other points of view as well as getting some “link love” from the backlilnks I’ve provided through this collection of awesome posts.

I’ve enjoyed every minute of Kids and Money and I’ve learned a lot. No doubt, I’ve learned and received more from this than you have, but I hope you’ve found the experiment worthwhile.

For now, I’ve decided to continue with this. Please help us all out by spreading the word about the Kids and Money carnival — the more attention we get, the better.


And here’s to a PROSPEROUS 2009! Be safe, be happy, do what you love (at least once in a while!), and spend time with your loved ones.

Without further delay, here are the posts.
