A New Year Wish

December 27, 2007 by Joe Ponzio

As you can imagine, I am doing very little this week-hence the lack of posts. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! (I did) We ended the year on a strong note with the Tribune play. Some visitors have asked for more clarification as to how I analyzed the deal and I’ll post that in the new year. A quick thanks to kfh227 for one of my new favorite quotes (I’ve used it a dozen times when talking about our Tribune play:

Don’t try to pick up coins in front of the bulldozer.

Finally, a big, huge, monstrous thanks to all of you whom have visited, contributed, and keep coming back. Since the site’s launch on June 25, 2007, F Wall Street has had more than 1,000,000 visits! In my six months of blogging, I have realized:

  1. It is very difficult to post something every day because, well, investing is pretty boring.
  2. There are some phenomenal blogs out there. (I never really looked before I started F Wall Street)
  3. Spammers will do just about anything to get links on a site. (If you need airline tickets, coupons, cheap Viagra, or Russian babysitters, let me know)
  4. If I wanted to make any money with the site, I’s really have to bog you down with ads. (I’ve made just under $110 in six months, though I do not run F Wall Street for the money nor do I expect you to suffer through a bloated advertising website)
  5. It takes a long time to sell and publish a book. (But more on that in January)
  6. There are some wonderful people out there that are willing to go the extra mile for complete internet strangers. (Your willingness to comment and respond to comments is awesome)

And so, as we head into 2008, let me be one of the first to wish you a happy and healthy new year filled with peace, joy, and prosperity. See you next year!
