A few weeks ago, I was a live guest on Talk Credit Radio, hosted by Gerri Detweiler, on radio station WSRQ. We talked about my sordid financial history pre-Consumerism Commentary, in which I confess to owning a car without knowing how to maintain it or how to handle my traffic tickets. We also talk about the Debt Snowball method for getting out of debt and the advantages of the Debt Avalanche. In the show, Gerri and I also discuss what happens when you rely on financial automation.

Also, now that the Primetime Emmy Awards are over, we can focus on a more meaningful set of accolades. Only a few days are left for all Consumerism Commentary readers to vote for favorite personal finance blogs. Consumerism Commentary is a finalist for these categories (and I’m honored):
- Best Written Personal Finance Blog
- Best Designed Personal Finance Blog
- Best Personal Finance Blog, Single Author
- BLOG OF THE YEAR
- Lifetime Achievement Award
I am up against great competition, with many of my favorite personal finance blogs nominated for the variety of categories. I would appreciate your vote, either for Consumerism Commentary or for your other favorite blogs. The winners will be announced at the Financial Blogger Conference on Saturday, October 1.
