300th Post: Some Of The Most Interesting of the First 300

The World Celebrates 300 Posts on finkorswim.com

Today we are celebrating 300 posts on my blog. Hence, the fireworks. (To see the picture I DID NOT use, click here.) When I started blogging 15 months ago I never dreamed I would ever have 300 posts or a respectable, regular readership. As you all know, most blogs rise and fall quicker than the President’s polling numbers. A big reason I have been able to maintain this blog because of you the readers. So I thank you.

I have compiled a nice list of posts worth reading. For some of you it will be review, for others it will be interesting to see some of the things you may have missed. As always I welcome feedback.

Enjoy.

    Mazal Tov on reaching 300 blog posts, may you be zocheh to post many more. I can’t say that I’ve read them all (because one is never sure of *all*), but I think I can say that I’ve read most of them, that I’ve enjoyed many of them, and that I’ve commented on some of them.

      Your loyal readership is very appreciated.

      I am pretty sure the older. less read posts will be “new material” for you.
