» Why Blogging Stocks is getting bashed from Investor Relations Blog
The Stalwart, one of the more informed places in the financial blogosphere, is taking aim at AOLs new Blogging Stocks blogs for publishing nonsense and completely missing the boat on the real purpose and role of investment blogs.... [Read More]

About credibility: agreed. And your quote is a good one.

But about the abundance of similar material already available. I think a blog CAN add something when it provides a pithy, cohesive and coherent narrative to the day's events. A blog post can be written with the expectation that the reader has already read earlier posts on the blog, and this allows the blogger to focus on the most important points to make for such a group. Not so for the cloud of articles that appear on Yahoo finance for a given stock.

You pretty much nailed it but they have good colors:)

You make great points here. I think I'd go with Gabe in saying that just having the blog format will help BloggingStocks, because it will appeal to folks who want to talk to each other about the latest happenings. But I also agree with you that it's a very crowded space and a lot of people might visit the new blogs and just say "meh."

Sorry, I know this is random, but I can't help myself - I strongly urge you all to try the new cocomment Firefox extension. Incredible - it even notifies me instantly when another cocomment user has responded to a comment I've left.

Completely agree, and I think InternetStockBlog has veered way too much in this direction too. It's nice to be an aggregator, but all the content is either reprinted from elsewhere (I know you guys syndicate some content to them) or data of negligble value all wrapped in an overwhelming bow. It's like a list of newswire feed type information that are listed as Recent News, in a brokerage account. I have no idea who that sites entertains, informs or adds value to aside from its transcript service. It used to do that for me when it had more analysis that wasn't pure grind mill. Then again, I'm sure it's a huge success.

Blogging Stocks is terrible.

I've just been staying at home waiting for something to happen. I just don't have much to say right now, but so it goes. I've basically been doing nothing to speak of, but shrug. Today was a loss. I don't care. That's how it is.

I've basically been doing nothing worth mentioning. Not that it matters. I just don't have anything to say these days. I've just been hanging out waiting for something to happen. Not much on my mind these days.

My life's been completely unremarkable recently. I haven't been up to anything. I just don't have much to say. I've just been letting everything pass me by. Shrug. I don't care.

I haven't gotten much done. Basically nothing noteworthy going on right now, but shrug. I can't be bothered with anything recently. I guess it doesn't bother me. Maybe tomorrow. I feel like a bunch of nothing.
