Bargaineering Name Change & New Forums!

Email  Print Print  

Some of you may have noticed that the banner on the website has changed from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity to simply Bargaineering. For years I confused people by telling them my personal finance blog was called Blueprint for Financial Prosperity (quite a mouthful) but located at (or So, to make things right and to do something I should’ve done four years and over two thousand articles ago, Blueprint will be set ablaze and Bargaineering will emerge like a phoenix from its ashes!

Everyone Loves Forums!

In addition to the name change, the eagle eyed among you may have noticed a new “Forums” link the navigation menu above and those two follow me on Twitter may have heard me mention it, but last week, with the help of Jeremy from GenXFinance, we launched a new section to the site, the BFP Forums. The forums are a place that I hope many of us can congregate, share information, ideas, tips, tricks, and other nuggets of wisdom.

As regular readers know, I’m a regular person just like you. I’m not an expert, just more knowledgeable about certain topics because I spent the majority of my day reading about it, and so I am often stumped by particularly complicated problems or scenarios. That’s where I hope you can all can come in and lend me a hand. I know there are experts out there in various arenas whether it’s investing (Khyron, Matt, George, just to name a few) or banking (Joe) or gardening (Jon) or frugality (Dawn) or pets (seems like everyone, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a shout to my long time friend Nick), so I’m hoping you will all join the forums, ask and answer questions freely, and, above all, become friends with one another so we can all learn and grow together.

A Bribe!

After the emotional appeal comes to bribe, right? It’s starting to be tax season, I’ve already received many of my 1099’s and my W-2’s, and we’ve partnered up with Intuit to give away several Quicken and TurboTax products. I’ll be tying in the forums and forum posts to some of the giveaways so sign up today and join in the spirited conversation.

Another Bribe!

Finally, as an added bonus/bribe, and heretofore unannounced (though some of the top commenters can attest to this), I ask readers for ING Direct referrals to put on my ING Direct referral promotion page. At last estimate I believe I’ve consumed 750+ referrals (30 accounts worth of referrals) on that page. As a reward to frequent forum users, I’ll start asking them, in addition to top commenters, for their ING Direct referrals next (and their spouses and relatives, I just use referrals until they run out!).

If you have any suggestions about the name change, about the forums, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

    I really like the new name and the line “engineering the most out of life”!

  5. Rob says:

    A change for the better, I say. I never could remember the URL of this site…. if I didn’t have it in my RSS reader I’d have lost it ages ago. Same name & URl should help those of us with bad memories 😉

    What, not come back to one of the best PF blogs around? Pfft. Thank God for Bloglines though 😉

  7. Fred says:

    I think simple branding is better… great idea and the site is looking good. I’m off to register for the forums… maybe I can throw in some DIY advice.

    I like it – nice tagline as well. 🙂

    I always wondered why the title and url were different. Now I can stop wondering.
