Behind the scenes: What's in store for this blog

The 10 months that I have been blogging has been an incredible time for me. I wanted to take this time to reflect:

First and foremost, blogging has really provided me a forum to increase my own understanding and application of financial theories to practice. In every post, I attempt to provide the most accurate advice/comment/suggestion through intensive research. This research has certainly enriched me.

Second, the blog has changed slightly from its original purpose. I started the blog to attempt to catalog each new personal finance issue I was faced with and then to give readers my solution. However, as I finalized my move from college life to real life, I realized there really wasn't going to be such a regular plethora of personal finance issues. I grappled with three possibilities: only posting when I had a new problem, start blogging about mundane PF issues, or start branching out into my investments. I settled upon investments because it provided the most regular material to blog about, and investments are a huge part of anyone's personal finances.

Third, as the new year begins, and as my blogging experience increases, I will begin blogging in a more organized fashion. I will start having mini-series on PF and investment issues, delving deep into a problem for a week or two.

The first of these series I started last week on options trading. I will work hard on fleshing out this topic for the next 5 days.

Congrats on making it 10 months! Most blogs don't make it that far. I've only been at it for 5 months and understand what its like trying to find your purpose. I just discovered your blog and look forward to seeing where you go with it. Good luck!
