I’ve got a couple of pieces of carnival news that may be of interest to other personal finance bloggers. (Readers who are not bloggers, might wish to move on or read about my new techno-lust.)
The Carnival of P2P Lending is looking for bloggers to host upcoming carnivals. It’s usually a small carnival making it a very small commitment. The small size lends itself to a creative and entertaining carnival. Lastly, the Carnival of P2P Lending has a five day window from the last submission until it is due to run. This means you won’t be up until 3AM the night before getting the last minute links in like you might with some other carnivals.
If you are a blogger and would be interested, simply leave a comment here or contact me. I will give preference to those who haven’t hosted before – just to give everyone a chance.
In other carnival news, I’m hosting the 150th edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance next week. I’d appreciate your very best articles from the last week (two weeks if it’s really good). Though the carnival is getting big to put into a theme, if you have an idea for it contact me. If I use it, I’ll give you credit in the opening paragraph.

Very interesting that there is a delay between the submission deadline and the posting date. An excellent idea although five days is a bit excessive. When I host the big carnivals I set my own cutoff date (usually late afternoon of the final day) which seems to work out quite well.
Regardless, I’d be interested in hosting the p2p carnival since I find the p2p arena quite interesting.

Since the carnival is just twice a month, I figured the 5 days to be fine. Plus it means that carnival comes out on the 5th and 20th, which is easier to remember than say that 3rd and 18th of the month (with the cut-off on the 1st and the 15th).

Hey Lazy Man!
Looking forward to next weeks Carnival of PF!
Great site, I’ve subscribed to your feed!
I like seeing the carnival on new blogs – I’ve added some new blogs to my reader that I found when the hosted the carnival.
I know I’ve already hosted but if you have run out of new volunteers I’m always game.
