Thanks to all the Consumerism Commentary readers who commented or emailed me about the auditions for staff writer. I’d like to welcome Kelly Whalen, a writer whose primary website is The Centsible Life, to the Consumerism Commentary team! Kelly will be providing one article a week starting this Thursday.

Facebook giveaway

This week, Consumerism Commentary will be giving away a copy of Excuse Me, Your Job is Waiting: Attract the Work You Want by Laura George. I reviewed the book here. The book is a few years old but it is a great resource for today’s economic conditions. In order to be entered in the giveaway, you must be a fan of Consumerism Commentary on Facebook.

Simply being a fan gives you one chance to win, but if you write on Consumerism Commentary’s wall to leave a tip for us, you will quadruple your chance to win. You must be a fan and leave your message by Friday, December 11 to qualify.

Best of Consumerism Commentary, November 2009

The Consumerism Commentary Podcast featured a number of great guests in November. This past month we discussed gift cards with Jim Sharvin, CPA, social and peer-to-peer lending with the CEO of LendingClub, finding a job with headhunter Nick Corcodilos, frugality with author Sharon Harvey Rosenberg, and investing for retirement with author Dan Solin.
