Michael Kitces explains:

“While blogging and social media for financial advisors continues to become more popular, one of the common challenges I hear from advisors trying to get started is that they’d like to see examples of what other advisors are doing that’s successful. What are some examples of blogs that have been able to get a lot of readership and traffic?

To help support this, today I’m excited to announce a new “Top 50 Advisor Blogs and Bloggers” list that we’ve built (powered by BrightScope) to recognize some of the most successful advisors in the blogosphere. The list captures a wide range of advisors, from those who write broadly about markets and investment and economics, to those who have niches Generation Y to Financially Wise Women to Low-Cost Investing.

So if you’ve been wondering what ‘blogging success’ looks like, click around and check out some of the advisor blogs, and see what they’re doing, or go through the submission process to have your own blog considered the next time we update the list (while we tried to capture as many advisor bloggers as we could, I’m sure there are more to be considered!). Of course, in the end a blog alone does not make a business – you still have to provide services and deliver value to your clients as well! – but I hope this list is helpful to stimulate some ideas, and to recognize those who have been pioneers in the advisor blogosphere so far!

 

Super job, Mike! I am thrilled to be part of this list . . .

What the Heroes of Blogging Have Accomplished

Last week, Noah penned a very interesting post, titled “Heroes of Blogging” (he includes a few kind words about your humble author). The temptation is to create one’s own list of blogging heroes, but instead I want to focus your attention on the impact of the entire financial blog format — on markets, investing and…Read More

NoahOpinion’s Heroes of Blogging

Lovely sentiments from Noah Smith on a few of your favorite bloggers, including Josh Brown and yours truly: Barry Ritholtz: There is a huge amount of financial disinformation and misinformation and just plain bullshit out there in the world. Most financial news is random noise, and some is even worse than that. And there’s a…Read More

Announcing My New Bloomberg Gig

I teased this last week, mentioned it again Monday, and now the news is finally out: I am joining the team at Bloomberg View as well as the Radio group.

This is a project that has been quite literally 6 years in the making. Back when he was Managing Editor of the NYT Sunday Business section, Tim O’Brien first approached me about writing for him. (My response: “Thaler, Shiller, Mankiw . . . Ritholtz? I don’t think so.“). We had ongoing discussions, but they O’Brien moved on before we were able to consummate anything.

Tim joined Bloomberg View earlier this year as its Chief Cook and Bottle Washer/Publisher. He has been given the budget and the freedom to pursue a specific objective: Make Opinion and Commentary smart again. I am thrilled to be part of that project.

I am also super jazzed about working with their Radio team to develop a weekly show. The elevator pitch was the Charlie Rose of finance meets Mark Maron on Bloomberg Radio and iTunes. The goal is to continue to do the sort of in depth interviews like I have done in the past with the all stars of investing:  Ned Davis, Felix Zulauf, Paul Desmond, etc. Its a work in progress, and I have no idea what it will look like when we are finished, but I expect it to be smart, informative — and not boring

I have had other discussions with other media outlets over the years: Reuters, CNBC, Huffington Post, lots more. Somehow, it never quite felt right. This one does.

More coming soon . . .

Teaser: Big Announcement Next Week

Since the summer, I have been working on a skunk works project that has been kept under wraps during the negotiation process.
