New Writer at Consumerism Commentary: Smithee

This article was written by in Administration. 10 comments.

A new writer is joining me and Sasha on Consumerism Commentary. Like the two of us, Smithee is an “old-school” blogger who has been publishing on the web for 14 years. The following is from Smithee’s bio:

I floated around from job to job, and from state to state, for most of my 20s, living primarily on credit cards and the good will of my friends. It wasn’t until age 30 was near that I found myself married and filled with ambition. I finally have cemented a career in Interaction Design, wherein I hope to build a good reputation and eventually someday work as an independent consultant.

Compared to the other authors here, I am a relative newbie to the field of personal finances. I’ve made plenty of mistakes, but I’m learning from them, and I hope to help readers of the site avoid the same problems.

I’m looking forward to reading about the experiences Smithee chooses to share. Please welcome him. Smithee’s articles will have his byline as well as his avatar at the top of the post, so it should be easy to identify his writing.
