You know you truely are a geek when:
Your mother starts complaining that you haven’t blogged enough !!
Seriously – mum complained that she went to check my blog to see where I was and what I was doing, but there weren’t any meaningful updates – simply sentimental drivel about old poems.
Well, I do have an excuse (a pretty lame one, but still an excuse!).
Other than being busy with work, I’ve been spending almost every waking hour (and many when I should really have been asleep!) – building a new website.
Finally we launched tonight – after quite a few months of work.
This is a website aimed at providing education to investors. It’s a community: a discussion forum, a blog (or three) for news updates, a library with articles about investing, a wiki with FAQs and a glossary, a photo gallery, a chatroom, and a heap more.
It’s not free – but charging a modest annual fee allows us to deliver so much more in the way of meaningful content and services than a free site would … and we also get to avoid a lot of banner-ad-itis that many sites suffer from.
We have some pretty big visions for this site – and we think it will do well. Feedback so far has been excellent.
I’ll try and write a bit more about what I’m doing – especially with some of the other stuff going on in our lives right now. But for now, I’ve got some more articles to edit and get online before I get some sleep tonight!
