First, if you haven’t yet this week, check out the latest Carnival of Personal Finance, hosted by Wide Open Wallet. There are some excellent articles this week including the host’s “Editor’s Picks,” Why Lending Club Isn’t for Most People, and Is Buying a Repossession Capitalizing on Someone Else’s Misfortune?
Now to the monthly administrative businesses.
Over the next few weeks there will be a number of changes coming to Consumerism Commentary. This is an exciting time right now, but it’s too early to share all but one of the details. I hope to have announcements when I return from vacation later this month. Until then, ensure that you are subscribed to Consumerism Commentary in order to be informed of recent articles and other development. You can subscribe to the blog to receive articles through the RSS feed. There are many ways you can use the RSS feed, such as personal readers like Google Reader or aggregators like My Yahoo.
The first expansion of Consumerism Commentary I would like to share is the new newsletter. By signing up, you will receive daily article updates, similar to the previous newsletter, but there will be more. In the email newsletter, I will share weekly extras such as exclusive giveaways, free downloads, tips, and articles not found elsewhere on Consumerism Commentary. Be one of the first to sign up for the new newsletter by entering your information below.
Note: If you signed up before 9:00 AM EDT this morning, you may have received a influx of messages. It appears I had the list misconfigured. I have fixed the problem and it should not happen again. I apologize if your inbox was full of messages from Consumerism Commentary.
The email address you enter will not be shared with anyone else, and I will not use it for any other purpose than sending you the newsletters. I won’t send you any junk mail or sell your information to another entity.
Social media. Please feel free to follow me on Twitter, a social media services based on short personal updates. My updates tend to be somewhat random non sequiturs but occasionally I might write about something pertaining to personal finance. I don’t simply duplicate my RSS feed.
If you do, however, prefer to receive notifications of new Consumerism Commentary articles on twitter, follow ConsumerismComm as well.
