Last night we expanded on the idea of financial blogging on StockTwits TV.  Since we had seen a number of threads on the topic of blogging we decided to do an extended screencast on the topic. In addition to talking about the business of blogging we discussed the debate around the  whether financial professionals blogging under a pseudonym was a good idea.  We also talked about how the goals of blogging are independent of any sort of business model and highlight a good example of that.  Lastly we finished up talking about some advice for novice bloggers.  You can view the video in its entirety below:
