88th Festival of Frugality – About Me Edition

by The Happy Rock on August 21, 2007

Welcome to the 88th Festival of Frugality! The Festival of Frugality is a blog carnival, which is a periodic round up of blogger’s best posts related to a specific topic hosted by various blogs.

Below are the 5 articles that I enjoyed the most, followed by the rest of the 35 entries that were accepted to the festival. For each entry I included a link to selected article and a link to the author’s ‘About Me’ page. For those blogs without an easy to find ‘About Me’ I will link to the main page. The posts are listed in the order they were received. Enjoy the wealth of knowledge.

Thanks for hosting and mentioning my post. You made me update my About Me Page :-) Thanks!


The Happy Rock August 22, 2007 at 11:56 am

Thanks for all the thanks!

@teaspoon – Great job updating. The about page is an important one, and one that interests me as a reader. That was the impetus for the About Page linking.

Yikes! I’ve been chasing this carnival down trying to find a way to submit to the current edition, and I’m at a dead end. Where is it next week?


The Happy Rock August 24, 2007 at 1:24 pm

@laura – I edited the post to include next week’s Festival information, I probably should have done that before. Thanks for reminding me.
