As any regular readers of DeltaPoints.com knows I think the world of Rick Ingersoll a.k.a. “The Frugal Travel Guy”. I have learned so much from him in the last many years and it is hard to believe he just started his blog in 2007.
Well now he, the blog, is owned and part of Internet Brands. What will this mean? For the short run? Nothing will change and as Rick himself says his blog will get better as he is no “computer geek” and his site IMO could use some work.
Long term, once Rick and his team is gone, who knows. I have seen changes in FlyerTalk after IB took over and that is one of the reasons I like MilePoint better. Now to be fully open and honest Boarding Area, who helps host DeltaPonts.com, a.k.a. Randy Petersen, also runs MilePoint for full disclosure.
The frequent flyer community is growing. There is no doubt about it. When you can do things like a $100 first class trip to Florida in high season in winter ( see tomorrow’s blog btw ), and rack up millions of points for little cost, we all know why.
For now I am happy for FTG and his success. Time will tell if the blog gets better or not! – René
