Congratulations to Seeking Alpha on 1 Million Registered Users

I got my start as a blogger in November of 2008 and nobody cared about anything I had to say.  I built an audience in those early days (or at least attempted to) using the following three methods:

1.  Emailing my posts to other financial bloggers like Barry and Bess and the Weez
2. Ticker-spamming the Yahoo Finance message boards with my links
3.  Cross-posting to Seeking Alpha

Of these three methods, the only one I’m proud of to this day is #3.  This was all before StockTwits and Twitter – Seeking Alpha was the most democratic way to get name for yourself and your work.

Seeking Alpha made me a better blogger.  It toughened me up and made me realize how little I knew – the comment section was brutal beneath my writings but it was also my crucible. Wanna see how bad my shit used to be – click here, LOL.

I also discovered many of my favorite bloggers on Seeking Alpha, like Eddy Elfenbein at Crossing Wall Street, Felix Salmon and Market Folly.  I stopped posting there a little while back, primarily because of time constraints, but I still go back there when I’m researching stocks to see if anyone has dug up something I hadn’t found on my own.  It is a very useful resource for me and I’m glad to see it thrive.

I had beers with one of the early founders, Mick Weinstein (now of Covestor) one night last week.  We got to talking about the old days and Mick’s stories of how SA came to be were pretty amazing.

Anyway, congrats to David Jackson and the team at Seeking Alpha on One Million Registered Users.  This is a major milestone and they’ve certainly earned it the old fashioned way – hard work, tenacity and an emphasis on quality.

Cheers, guys.
