How the sausage gets made at Abnormal Returns
- April 18th, 2012
We don’t go in for much navel gazing here at Abnormal Returns. In part, because we don’t have the time, but in part we don’t have a lot in the way of hard and fast rules about how we blog. However as a part of our blog book tour for Abnormal Returns: Winning Strategies from the Frontlines of the Investment Blogosphere we had a chance to talk with Mick Weinstein at Covestor.
Mick was interested in some of what goes on behind the scenes here at Abnormal Returns, or how the sausage gets made. We also talked about the book and the prospect for a robot to replace what we do here on a daily basis. Here is one choice excerpt:
M: How do you find talented new bloggers?
T: They find me in some form or fashion. In my book I describe the investment blogosphere as an “imperfect meritocracy.” The best bloggers eventually bubble up on to my and other blogger’s radar screens. I am somewhat reluctant to quickly endorse new bloggers until they show a commitment to it. I have seen a lot of bloggers come out of the gate strong to only peter out.
Thanks to Mick for the thoughtful questions and excellent write-up. Check it out.
