As the end of the year approaches, and this blog reach extends to about 5 million hits, I was wondering as to what were the important moments of 2014.
Social media has been a big game changer in the market place for me personally and I do think this will not change in 2015 or in the near future. I’m very grateful for the opportunities and experiences that I have got throughout the year and have been happy to have written for Indian websites like Moneycontrol, Rediff, etc. and for international websites like Reuters and Yahoo.
Blogging is now a daily activity and knowing that at least 5500 UNIQUE READERS read my posts gives immense pleasure – and adds responsibility! When one gets recognized in a public place it is sometimes an honor and sometimes a worry. I try and think of something that will either help, excite, interest or worry my readers. I will continue to tickle and tease – and as usual will not answer queries. My job is to make you think. If you want answers there are at least a 100 other websites who will answer questions like ‘what is ulip?’ and what is a sip. It is not my business to tell you things that are there on other websites. My blog will continue to tease and sometimes torment you.
I will continue to question the pampered investor (who knows nothing about protection), the regulator (who lives in an ivory tower), the manufacturer (who still makes products that hurt), the distributor (both the strong guys and the weaklings), ….and the novice first time to be investor.
My favorites are the students, I hope I make them strong enough to question their teachers, parents and the writers of books and blogs including yours truly.
Sharing the knowledge I have acquired over the last 35 years has always been a great experience for sure!
I was NOT completely oblivious to the power of content. However, I was also convinced that packaging and selling data and content was better left to the Bloombergs, and the Reuters. Lesser mortals just plod around the place and then shut down. I prefer the free blog with a few Google ads kinda model – it does not make money, but takes care of the costs of running the blog.
However I have been overwhelmed by the 100,000 odd comments on my blog, and the number of people who have thanked me for so many blog articles is stunning.
I started by writing a blog when I was a complete novice even to writing! I had never written a blog before and had no idea what people actually wanted to know. However it is capital markets that I was passionate about and had spent some time trading, investing and training. About this market I had enough clarity and met with many people who had a very poor understanding of the markets. Every entrepreneur (and CEO) will encounter the same worries, and anxieties when he/she tries to sit on top of a business – especially one which requires attention but will not support me financially!!
