Meet Guest Blogger Mark Ashley

When the red phone rings, you pick it up. And so it is when the Consumerist taps you for some guest posting.

For the next week, I’ll be sitting in here, in addition to posting at my normal site, Upgrade: Travel Better, where I dole out travel advice, news, and commentary. It’s a consumer-oriented travel-focused site for people who want to “live the first class life, at coach prices.” That’s the motto, at least.

This week I’ll be expanding the repertoire a bit outside of the travel realm, but it’s impossible to leave the comforts of your niche entirely.

If you want to get a flavor of the kind of stuff I normally do, check out this grab bag o’ posts:
