Week in Review: Name Change Edition

by Kay Lynn

Bucksome Boomer

Today I’m rolling out a shorter name for the site: Bucksome Boomer.  My tag line has been modified as well.  Click  through to see the new header if you’re reading this from email or a reader.

Other upcoming changes include adding pages for specific topics.  Coupons will be the first one and will include all posts related to coupons as well as specific affiliate ads for coupon sites.

In addition to working on design this week (and breaking it once) I found these articles to share with you this week.  Enjoy!

Thanks. I did it myself so it’s simple but I’ll get better with future iterations. I also upgraded Wordpress and Thesis at the same time so had all kinds of possible ways to kill my blog going on last night!

Nice header! I’ve always thought your site was “Bucksome Boomer” given then URL, so it makes sense what you’ve done!

Thanks for the wrap.

Cheers, Sam

It was Bucksome Boomer’s Journey to Retirement which is quite a mouthful. I think people just shortened it to match the URL.

What Sam said. What was it before? LOL. I always thought it was Bucksome Boomer, too. Although I gotta tell you I always think of a busty woman when I hear the word “bucksome” ya know… buxom?

The double meaning is intentional but my spelling is referencing money, LOL.

I appreciate the info on Twitter. For some reason I seem to be Twitter challenged. Could’ve been all that acid at UT. Go figure.

It just could be all that acid! I didn’t get twitter until I learned about hashtags and lists. It allows me to filter so I only see the messages I’m interested in at that time.
