“The Debt Defier” meets “The Debt Defier”

by Debt Destroyer on October 23, 2008

I feel silly.

I just found out that there is already someone out there blogging under the name “The Debt Defier.”

Here is her blog

She hasn’t posted anything since May. But she cold start up again at any moment since she’s already took a year long break from the blog while she was living in Thailand.

I found out about her when I googled “Debt Defier” and up popped her site. I should’ve done this a long time ago, but to tell you the truth when I got into this whole “blogging thing” I didn’t know much about it (still don’t), so it never even crossed my mind.

I feel bad using the same name as a fellow personal finance blogger (especially someone who likes The Goonies & Nina Simone).  To me it’s like when people called LaDainian Tomlinson LT, when everybody knows Lawrence Taylor is LT!

Plus this blog was mentioned on NPR (click here for a listen).  And I’m a huge NPR fan, so it’s settled…

I need a new name!

Actually you know what?  I kinda like ending my posts “DD”.  So until I have a stroke of brilliance (don’t hold your breath, it could be awhile), I think I’ll stick with that.

But feel free to throw out any ideas you have.  Going by some of the names you have, it’s easy to see that the Happy Rock readers are a very creative bunch.

Until then,


The Happy Rock – Also, readers have had problems realizing that there is more than one writer at The Happy Rock.  So any site changes that people could recommend that might help quickly and easily identify who is the author of a given post.   My friend Ray over at Bathtub Brewery did an excellent job on this front.  Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

The Real Debt Defier (or RDD for short)

What about DDT? I think that was a move I saw in wrestlemania 😉

What if you used a thumbnail of some sort in the heading to identify the author, whether it’s DD or THR?

Sorry to hear about the little kink. Branding is a pretty big deal.
Debt Destroyer?
Defy Debt!!!
Damn Debt!!!

Thanks for the ideas everybody!

As much as I’d love to have a handle taken from Wrestlemania, I think I like Debt Destroyer the best.

So an extra big thank you goes to stocks!
