Whether you’re a long-time follower coming over from Debt BLAG, or reading this blog for the first time, thank you and welcome to the new Adventures in Frugal.
“So why the name change?” you’re almost certainly not asking yourself as you try to get along with your busy day.
It’s been a long time coming, but what finally got me moving was this post last Monday which asked, “Is frugality sexy?”
My conclusion was that yes, of course frugality is sexy, because it implies someone who knows him or herself well enough to understand what they value and what they’re passionate about, and is willing to fight for these things — including by prioritizing less important aspects of their life to frugality.
I felt pretty good about that, but then thought of the name of my blog — Debt BLAG. Debt isn’t the point. The point isn’t paying off debt. It’s not even increasing net worth. All of these are tools — important tools perhaps but tools nonetheless — toward chasing those passions we prioritize above all others.
In other words, frugality itself can’t make you sexy, but it can free you up to have some pretty sweet adventures along the way.
Please pass this new address along, comment, ask question, disagree, and so forth. This whole blogging thing is a lot more fun if you participate.
Much more to follow. Until then friends, happy adventures.
