With this financial debacle that we are in right now, I began checking out some money-related sites, not to do a post about them but to obtain some investment advice. However, I thought this page was just too good for you not to take a look at. So I was just thinking as I was surfing, along with all those sports blogs, technology blogs and personal blogs, there should be quite a few investing blogs. Thus, naturally I googled "investment blogs".
The first result was Lloyd's Investment Blog and I was intrigued by the fact that it was hosted by Blogger so I clicked.
Sure, I wasn't particularly impressed by the ads filling the page and the incredibly average design of the page. Plus, this blog gave a new definition to "wall of text" but because of its immense popularity, I decided to look at more in depth anyway.
First of all, I just scrolled down to observe the things he had on the sidebar. Well, I saw mostly ads but what really caught my eye were two badges indicating that the author was a "Best Way to Invest Expert" and a "Seeking Alpha Certified Writer".
After that, I obviously read a few posts. What I noticed was a very professional style, loaded with statistics, graphs, facts and analysis. He gives you advice and makes interpretations in such a precise manner that you know that he can't be wrong. In addition, with all his tellings, he'll back it up with cold, hard information. In fact, Lloyd Sakazaki will often refer to renowned financial experts in his blog.
All in all, with his Ph.D., the author, "an experienced investment banker and global
finance specialist", provides valuable insight and projections that will assist investors of any proficiency with their decisions.
