“Blogging’s Bomb Thrower”

LOL, I’m actually fairly tame with my opinions publicly – one day I’ll tell you how I really feel. My style of blogging has always been to obey one rule – remain compliant with industry regulations. Outside of that, I never even thought about presenting myself in an specific way that was “good for my image.” No PR lady holding my hand, no playbook and no strategy – just my real opinions in my own voice. I’m glad it worked and that people enjoy reading my stuff. It was definitely a big risk to be so unscripted along the way. 

Anyway, thanks so much for Investment Advisor Magazine for adding me to their IA 25 List. This was published last week while I was away…

Josh Brown, Blogging’s Bomb Thrower: The 2014 IA 25 Profile

Doing ‘the things you’re not supposed to do’ is what keeps Brown going

Josh Brown credits the success of his writings to his outspokenness and frank, forthright approach.

Josh Brown credits the success of his writings to his outspokenness and frank, forthright approach.

Many enthusiastic bloggers, financial or otherwise, have fallen and will continue to fall by the wayside, but not New York-based financial blogger par excellence, Josh Brown. He launched his blog, The Reformed Broker, in 2008 as “a place to vent and give people an idea of what it felt like to be a broker in a financial crisis.”

Brown believes a blog is a beast that must be fed, and today, he is as prolific as ever in the blogosphere. The issues he’s writing (or venting) about might have changed since 2008, but the blog’s readership is as strong as ever, and Brown continues to inform and entertain his readers with his market-related insights and thoughts on various events as they unfold.
