Carnival of Personal Development: February 9, 2009 edition

Today’s regularly-scheduled Someday Interview will appear tomorrow. Instead, I was selected to host the February 9, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Personal Development, created by Jeremy Day of Insight Writer.

Given the breadth of topics (Personal Development, Personal Finance, and Health), I’ve been pretty rigorous with my choices. In each topic I’ve provided what I consider the top nine articles submitted to each topic. (Why nine? Because it’s my favourite number.)

Enjoy your readings!

    I had a great time reading the posts and deciding what made them fit in with Someday Syndrome.

    I was born in 1969, my birthday is 27 – adds up to nine. It’s also three-threes and the nine times table from 0-9 creates a funky pattern. Oh, and if you overlap three equilateral triangles and put the points equidistant from each other you create a circle in the centre. I like 9.
