How can we increase awareness of this board?

First I think we need a better definition of this board. We can all discuss a lot of retirement stuff at the several existing retirement boards (Retired Fools, Retirement Investing, Retire Eafly Liberal Edition, Retire Early Conservative Edition--er, RECampFire).

I'm hoping that this is the place to discuss frugality in retirement, budget trade-offs, living on barely middle class income (or less) that tends to annoy/bore/make uncomfortable/make feeling superior the retirees/near-retirees who are affluent.

Not saying that people who have to pay the extra Medicare premium for individuals with $85k+ income (and couples with $170k+ income) "can't" or even shouldn't post here, but they should be cognizant of the board being especially for those retired on much less and not IMO post about spending that's only possible with such incomes.

Otherwise, what's the point of this board?

=alstro, possibly beating a dead horse...
