Wrapping up the first month of the year, I’m not quite convinced I’m on the right track yet. I spent most of this month without much time for myself. I suppose it’s a good thing I’m not responsible for any other person than myself. On the other hand, January was a great month for Consumerism Commentary.
For most of the month, I was focused on the two-week “tour” I took during the last two weeks of the month. I wrote articles for ten other websites, and I’m happy to say they were all well received. Here are the highlights from my tour. Please take a moment to read some of these articles and visit these websites.
