Most Popular Finance Blogs

Valuewiki_2
I noticed earlier this morning that tons-o-traffic were heading this way via Valuewiki. It turns out they did an analysis of the  Most Popular Finance Blogs.

We fared pretty well, coming in after Herb and Seeking Alpha. According to Alexa, that makes us the highest trafficked, non MSM, non aggregator blog.

This reminds me of a few things I need to do:

• I can’t seem to get Technorati’s Claim Your Blog feature to work for the Big Picture (it works fine for essays & effluvia);

• I should update the "What’s this blog about?" post; I suspect many readers are relatively new here  and may need some explnation as to what’s this all about.

• Lastly, I need to create a disclosure doc to answer all of the usual questions I seem to get about stock positions, blog payola, editing, posting comments etc.
