The site is Seeking Alpha and my thought process is sort of straightforward as to why. Years ago I used to do really long in-depth equity research. It would take me weeks and weeks to collect my thoughts similarly to the way you collect yours.

Like you, I would post my work on various sites with the hope of getting feedback on my conclusions about a particular stock. The responses I got were almost all the same. Too long, too much information, no graphs, no charts, you didn't provide a clear valuation, blah blah blah.

One of the places I used to post was Seeking Alpha. One day, someone told me in a reply to one of my posts, I should become a Seeking Alpha contributor. So I did, or more specifically I was. Now I just post to my blog over there.

The reason I was a contributor and no long am, is because I don't do in-depth research anymore, except for my own use, and I don't do charts and graphs. Those sorts of things are requirements to be a contributor at Seeking Alpha, and since you are spending the kind of time I know it takes to produce the research you produce, I just thought maybe you could make some beer money for your efforts, while you hopefully find a great stock to invest in.

This link ( which is a random selection will take you to an article over there so you can see what I am talking about. Just think standard Fooldom front page article on steroids and you'll get the idea.
