I wanted to share a new website that I have been working on called ABCs of Investing. It is a basic investing site where there will be two short and simple investing posts each week. The idea is for people who don’t know much about investing and want to learn (or even if they don’t want to learn) can sign up for the feed or subscribe by email (new posts will arrive in your email). Rather than have to read a book or spend hours going through investing websites they can just get a small amount of information a couple of times a week. A lot of the readers of this blog are fairly knowledgeable about investments already but this site might be useful for those of you who aren’t as experienced.
Help your friends or relatives
Do have any friends or relatives that are pretty clueless when it comes to investing? Is it hard for you to talk to them about investing? Maybe sending them to ABCs of Investing will be a way to help them out a bit. Some people either don’t want to take the time to learn about investments or they are perhaps too scared by all the terminology and don’t know where to start. Even a little bit of investment knowledge goes a long way – whether someone is a do-it-yourself investor or dealing with an advisor.
One thing to keep in mind with this site is that it is geared towards Americans so some of the posts will not apply to Canadians. I am considering starting a Canadian version of this site but I’m having a problem with not enough time, so that project will have to wait a while. Rest assured, most of the articles will be universal in nature so it doesn’t matter which country you live in.
The site is quite new and doesn’t have a lot of material just yet – here are some sample posts.
- Investing – as in ‘what is?’ – I started off very basic!
- Fixed Income
- 401(k) Plans – I told you it was geared toward Americans! 🙂
- Investment Asset Classes
- Asset Allocation
- Stock Market Index
Ok, that’s all the posts that have been published – but there will be plenty more in the future. Please go and check out – let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions. And tell everyone you know to subscribe! 🙂
