Happy Birthday to Us – National Consumers League

The Savvy Consumer Blog is celebrating our first year of fun in the blogosphere! Launched just about a year ago, in October 2007, we’ve been hard at work bringing news and nuggets to consumers around the globe. We’ve covered issues ranging from the importance of reading your bills, to swimming pool safety, things to think about when buying a home, avoiding fake check scams, advice for teens searching for jobs, and more!

And what a crazy year it’s been! With headlines about the foreclosure crisis and a scary economy, concerns about imports, lead, and toy safety, child labor abuses, and other hot consumer news, we’ve sure been busy! We’ve had a lot of fun doing it, and we want to hear from you! Tell us your consumer stories, and tell us what you think of ours.

Here’s to another year of fun and education at the Savvy Consumer blog!
