Retire at 30 just asked me to fill in for him for this week’s Carnival of Investing. Apparently, all is well with TT from Retire at 30, but his job is taking up most of his time so he has stopped blogging. Since I only found out that I would be hosting this week’s carnival on Sunday night, this week’s carnival is going to be a basic listing of this week’s submissions for the sake of time. So without further adieu, let me present this week’s Carnival of Investing:
