The worst thing about writing a blog and trying to be original everyday is a quick realisation that you cannot!
Frankly there are only 140 pages that you need to write in personal finance. Beyond that it is re writing. Like if you have read Bhagavatham, Ramayana and Mahabharatha ….you have really captured all the emotions. After that it is just cut and paste.
These are the following topics:
Power of compounding
Equity gives volatile returns
Real estate gives inflation adjusted returns, but less than equity
Gold is but a commodity not backed by cash flows
Retirement saving is now Retirement Investing
Do not seek a financial planner, unless you understand what he can / should do
A planner who sells products is like a doc attached to a OT and pharma shop
….after you have written all this..what do you do?
Write the same thing in a different way, that is all. Like a TV soap re-run.
So you write on “Start your tax based investment in April”….or ‘You should buy that house when you are young’ – and quote a couple of people. Throw in a couple of examples…and you have a story.
My sympathies with the kids looking for stories in the mutual fund industry, life insurance,…….really nothing is happening.
People like me rubbish retirement plans, children plans, ….luckily I am doing this for fun..there is no way one can make money writing. Surely not in India. Yes it is easy to get a job in a mag ….but making a living out of writing personal finance, bah!
