    In conjunction with Lufthansa Flyer's move to their new blog home, I noticed some blogs I'd never read before. I've heard about and read Miles, Points and Martinis, but I didn't know there was a Miles, Points and Mai Tais, and I've read Mommy Points but I didn't know there was also a Deal Mommy and I was wondering about the lesser known blogs, so I did some research and here are some that I've found. feel free to add to the list.

    One Credit Card at a Time - wherein, the author blogs about all the various credit card offers that he/she gets referral offers for. The original title was going to be One Credit Card Referral at a Time, but the author was dissuaded from using that name by friends and family. Nonetheless, the author plans on using their experience with this blog, when he/she writes his/her first book, "how I quit my job and earned thousands of dollars per week on the internet and it didn't cost me a dime".

    Frequent Whiner - the is the US version of the popular UK blog, Frequent Whinger. The author tells us which latest offers Cartera Commerce (the company behind many airlines mileage malls) has backed out of, and keeps us up to date on their lawsuit against Cartera Commerce and the airlines mileage programs for failing to honor the offers at their mileage malls. The author also frequently laments the fact that they can no longer churn presidential dollar coins or state quarters for free.

    View From the Rear - Forget Mr Fancy Pants .. this is a blog for the rest of us, those disenfranchised, 99%-ers that never have enough miles for a free ticket, sit in the back of the bus when they fly, usually in a middle seat, and the aspirational hotel of their dreams is the Motel 8. Once in a while, they get to stay at the SFO Two Points (a hotel the author has said is not good enough to be called a Four Points), because they are able to afford it when they bid $16 a night for it on priceline.

    Ryan Air Flyer - wherein the author promises to keep us up to date on every possible fee and gotcha you have to watch out for when flying the namesake airline, and how to avoid them. We also get endless streams of updates for their routes and schedule changes and the antics of their CEO.

    Isn't that the site where you actually pay to leave a comment? and it costs extra if you use more than 50 letters or if you want it in bold fonts?

    I tried to get tix to your show, but they were all reserved for Platinum members. :(

    Saying that you have a blog around here is like announcing you have children at a PTA meeting. :D

    PTA meetings are always more entertaining when there are children present.

    The newest lesser known blogger ...

    Blogging for Dollars

    A new boarding area blog, this blogger concentrates on promoting every credit card there is that provides a referral fee.

    I like milenerd.
    http://www.milenerd.com

    Yes, I know Paul but no he didn't ask me to write this or anything. His blog is great if you don't have time to read all the other blogs and he doesn't have credit card affiliate links or comments so it is pretty drama free. Nice simple information.

    LIH Prem: This is very funny. You should do it. Start one of these satirical blogs that is. I bet you would get lots of readers. I have a blog too. Ha ha.
