Stock Blogs Take Off

| 6 Comments

Trader Mike posts a neat time-series of the number of stock market blogs in existence. Up to February, he had collected about 2 new blogs per month. Since then the pace has increased--he has found 16 new ones in June.

This data is excellent, given that Mike's level of effort in discovery has remained roughly constant. I applaud him for creating his own data, an entrepreneurial activity economists would do well to learn.

I think part of the reason is that many people who are successful traders are hesitent to talk about what they do for fear it would stop working. As for myself, my market blog would probably sound whiny and somewhat pathetic. As far as business news blogs go, it seems likely to remain a niche market.

Kevin,

Great Blog! As the author of Stock Picks Bob's Advice, I would have to say that I am part of that growth in stock blogs that Trader Mike has noted. My blog dates back to May, 2003, although I was intermittently writing on Delphi a few years previously.

Hopefully, as an amateur I shall be able to share my own experiences, and my own methods for evaluating stocks from an individual investor viewpoint. Please come and visit and see if you find my approach helpful!

Bob
