When the stops come quick. the trading doesn't last very long. After watching my portfolio shrink a bit this summer and fall I decided to put half of my trading account into long term stocks. Long ter …

Fastest Money Blog Writer on the Internet

I believe I am the fastest finisher this year in the Financial Blog World but this can't be verified. I beat last years' time by 15 minutes. I'm going to train a bit harder after a three week rest as I need to run 3:15 to qualify for Boston and I have a 34 mile race coming up next summer. I am going to eat as much ice cream as I can until that time.

Team Shane

One day until the Marathon. Drink and peeing like a racehorse trying to hydrate for the race. I don't think that will be as much a big deal as all my other marathons as it is only going to be 35 degrees or so. Taking the video camera to get some footage for the site and maybe something for Wallstrip. We'll see how I feel. My shirt says Team Shane 1 in 1 One marathon in only on day It's …

Wallstrip Will Get Better

Give Wallstrip a chance. It seems that every blog I read is somehow connected or at least fans of the bloggers that contribute to the show. They of course, love it but others have been more critical. What we must remember is that everyone involved is new to this form of media. Most of us hide behind our blogs and it is going to take a while to come out from behind them. Also, not all the blog …

The Best Investment on the Internet….The Internet

It's right in front of out eyes, the best investments on the Internet are the domain names we use on a daily basis. Yes, many call it squatting and resent the people holding the domain names hostage or putting paid parking on the domains. As long as the name is a generic name and not a trademarked name or a typo, I see no reason why this should be viewed as negative. It is no different that buy …

I Need Steve Jobs Autograph

After my post yesterday I started thinking I better get started now. My Dad has been an avid Apple users since 1978, and I can say I knew I wanted to be in business from the first time I started playing Lemonade Stand on the Apple II.

Its Official Its a Bull Market and I Can Prove It

Here's how I prove it. I believe that Google can be used to search for trends in certain things using their GOOGLETRENDS analyzer. I like at retail stores growth using this by seeing if their searches have gone up or down. I use it for a million different things. I recently typed in the two queries "bull market vs. bear market" and the graph is too the left. It's more than ironic that ther q …

Not Every Blog Has to Make You a Better Person

I won't send any links to the countless blogs chastising a recent blogger chastising other bloggers whom she finds worthless. Who the hell cares? She's right. There's a ton of junk out there and my blog is one of them. I can't write as well as many of them and I'm not as trained analytically as many of the others. What I do have is personality. No offense to Trader Mike and his new contrib …
