Meet the Vanguard Diehards Bloggers

Post by Barry Barnitz » Mon Oct 22, 2007 4:15 pm

A good number of forum members are also authors of financial blogs or financial websites. We feel that forum participants might appreciate seeing this aspect of the memberships’ interests and talents, so we will be offering our members this Topic for introducing themselves and their blogs/websites to you. Note that we are emphasizing Forum members who happen to blog or compose financial webpages. We want to be clear that this site is not to be used as a blog aggregator or listing service. To assure that the good intentions of the Topic are realized and not abused, we will be selective and will apply the following conditions for blog/webpage inclusion:

1. Members submitting blogs/webpage must have been a member of the forum for at least 30 days and must have demonstrated a willingness to contribute constructively to forum conversations.

2. Commercial blogs/webpages will not be permitted. If the primary purpose of the blog /webpage is to produce revenue for the author, or to function as a lead-in conduit to a commercial site, we will delete it. Non-obtrusive ads (such as adsense, amazon, or sponsors) are permissible as long as they are clearly secondary features of the blog/webpage and do not detract from content.

3. For blogs, we ask that the blog be active; if we find that the blog appears inactive, we will attempt to contact the author by private message and ascertain the blog’s status. If the blog remains inactive, we will delete it.

Please post in this topic by listing the name and web address for your blog and describe it in a few words ( < 50).

As an aid to readers we will provide an index of our member’s blogs/webpages as the concluding post in this Topic.

Please check out our unscreened Off-Topic post, Calling all blog and website authors for listing any of your blogs/webpages.

Financial Blogs:

Post by Barry Barnitz » Mon Oct 22, 2007 7:48 pm

I author two financial blogs:

1. Financial page, which centers around indexing, academic research, news, with an occasional analytic touch.

2. Asset Allocation which devotes itself to the art and science of asset allocation.

I blog at SharpeInvesting.com (http://www.sharpeinvesting.com/). I try to blog about more advanced financial concepts and also more material related to investment banking and other wall street careers. Also, I have really enjoyed reading this forum and have integrated the advice into my own investment philosophy.

In Petrocelli"s Anti-Boglehead Blog I demonstrate why everyone except me is a total jackass. If you are looking for useful investing information, forget about it.

Wealth Management Blog

Post by LHerr » Sat May 17, 2008 8:31 am

Barry,

I run the Wealth Management blog and you will see the link in my signature. The blog is designed to help the beginning investor learn how to construct and manage a portfolio. The AA-Mosaic Portfolio is a "real money" portfolio I am launching as an example.

From the site, one can find a SS that is accurately tracking all the trades and it all does an accurate calculation of the IRR -- including three benchmarks.
