an end and a beginning

“This is either a door or a wall for me, a beginning or an end.”

The other day I wrote about this door or wall conundrum while in the process of making several behind the scenes changes in my career and daily routine. When I hit what felt like a wall this late summer, it became obvious that some of my commitments and activities had to be left behind in order for me to find the door. And so today, I say goodbye to my second blogging home, the Wall Street Journal’s Financial Adviser.  I’ve got a handful of projects in the works in addition to my top priority, the wealth management practice that is the center of my world. And so in order to give these projects and roles my full attention, after two years I’m saying goodbye to something I’ve truly loved:

This will be my final post for the Wall Street Journal’s Financial Adviser Blog.

What began as experiment for Dow Jones in collaborating with an outside contributor and industry insider eventually became a beautiful partnership. For two years, my friends at Dow Jones enabled me to keep this blog updated five days a week, sometimes more than once a day, with as much relevant content for the inquiring financial adviser as I could humanly muster.

The numbers break down like this:

  • I’ve posted here on over 480 days since November 1st of 2010, with almost every single business day during that stretch accounted for.
  • I’ve published 483 early morning editions of The Good Leads linkfest
  • Those linkfests have included a minimum of 8 outbound links per day, totaling more than 3800 articles and blog posts I’ve referred people to.
  • I also did 79 original posts, each written exclusively for the Financial Adviser Blog

Since I began posting here, many of my fellow advisers have begun blogging and I’ve been asked about how I got started here. In this, my final post for the FA Blog, I thought I may as well answer…

Head over for the rest, including my origin story as blogger for the FA blog, I’ll have more announcements coming soon…
