Bargain Babe spins off after all

ScottWhen Daily News reporter-blogger Julia Scott announced her Bargain Babe shopping blog, it sounded as if she would also keep writing her self-described less-edgy, less-personal blog for the paper. Nope. She posts today that Friday is the last day for the DN's Bargain Hunter.

I am going to be an independent online journalist, or an idiot who gave up a steady paycheck during a recession, depending on how you look at it.

My decision to start Bargain Babe both terrifies and thrills me.

She bills Bargain Babe as "daily tips for savvy spenders."
