Living with credit, Protecting yourself

Carnival of Personal Finance highlights blog on guarding personal data

Connie Prater

My blog about my reluctance to share personal information when signing up for a bone marrow donation program was selected for the 328th edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance.

A blog carnival is a collection of blogs written about specific topics, such as personal finance. Each week, a different blogger hosts the carnival and selects the best blogs to include in the roundup.

This week’s host, Wealth Informatics, featured a creative way to showcase the winning blog posts using a graphic about consumer spending.
