I wanted to do a quick update to let you know of some adjustments I’ll be making to the blog, now that I’ve had a couple of weeks to see how things are going.
- I’m suspending the list of article links I’ve been writing on a daily basis. If I find something particularly useful, I may share it on the blog’s Facebook feed. But for the moment, the daily links were taking up time that I think can be better spent on more substantive articles. I’ll continue to put references at the bottom of most blog posts, and will try to add to the Resource links regularly.
- This week I implemented a weekly schedule, so you’ll know what types of content will be posted each day. Right now, the schedule is as follows:
- Monday’s posts will have money saving tips and consumer advice, like the posts What Your Credit Score Means and Save the Earth & Your Wallet: Environmentally-Friendly Ways to Cut Costs.
- Tuesday’s posts will continue the Looking at Company Financial Statements and Ratios series. So far it includes an article on Gross Margins, Profit Margins and Operating Margins and an article on Operating Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow.
- Wednesday’s posts will cover beginning investor topics, like Target Date Funds: the Autopilot Solution to Retirement Planning or today’s article on Risk Tolerance-Making Sure Your Investments Don’t Keep You Up at Night
- Thursday’s posts will continue the What the Heck is series, explaining less common terms like Master Limited Partnership and Real Estate Investment Trust.
- Finally Friday is a kitchen sink day. We’ll do more personal stories and posts like Winter is Coming, but Don’t Panic!: 10 Money Lessons I’ve learned from Geekdom. I expect that most of the posts Jon writes will come out on Fridays.
- One thing we will definitely be adding is some book reviews of some of our favorite personal finance and investing works. Jon and I are both avid readers with a large library. We have intended to share our some of our favorites with you from the beginning, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. You’ll see the first before the end of the month.
