Long-time followers and first-time readers: Thank you for your visits. I invite you to also head over to the new Adventures in Frugal at http://adventuresinfrugal.com.

“So why am I adding a second blog?” 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 going 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. The point can’t just be 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.

Debt BLAG will continue to be a thing, but it will focus on the numbers and the tools whereas Adventures in Frugal will focus on what those numbers can do for you.

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.

    Sounds like a good move, Mario..just a few things I thought I’d mention to you:

    1.) you might want to include a clickable link to the new site in this post – it’ll help us readers out. :)
    2.) I did head over to the new site, and wanted to instantly add it to my RSS reader – but the RSS button gave me the feedburner URL for debtblag. Will you be setting up an RSS for the new site as well?

    Looking forward to following along at your new address!
