Today Stable Investor completes 3 years. So congratulations are in place. :-) I wanted to write a long speech but that’s not my forte. So will keep it as simple and as direct as possible.
So first of all, I take this opportunity to thank myself for being the one man unit behind the concept of Stable Investor. ;-P ;-P
Secondly but more importantly, I thank You. It would not have been possible without your support, time, comments and feedback. Had it not been for you all, I would have been like a person in closed room, shouting out his thoughts about investing with no one to listen to.
So thank you once again for listening to me.
Not a day goes when I don't think about what I should write here on Stable Investor. It has become such an integral part of my life that I am now unable to imagine how I used to spend my free time before starting Stable Investor.
This 3rd year was an important one as I launched my first premium product Ultra Long Term Stocks in June. I was pleasantly surprised by the response which it received and would like to thank subscribers of Ultra Long Term Stocks in particular once again.
Some numbers to gauge what has been build in last 3 years – I have written a total of 179 articles; Have received more than 5.8 Lac pageviews; Email subscription has reached 1400+ and there are quite a few hundreds subscribing to RSS feeds using feed aggregators. Facebook Page has crossed 3200 Fans and there are more than 650 Twitter followers of @StableInvestor.
These numbers are not big ones but still mean a lot to me as each one represents a person who is ‘actually’ interested in real long term investing.
And that is what keeps me motivated on this long journey of learning about investing and of course about getting to know my real self a little better.
Stable Investor is all about Investing – So I share with you this thought by Morgan Housel which I read some days back:
Investing isn’t easy. It can get emotional. It can make you angry, nervous, scared, excited, and confused. Most of the time you make a decision under the fog of these emotions, you’ll do something regrettable. So talk to someone before making a big money move. A friend. An advisor. A fellow investor. Just discuss what you’re doing with other people. “Everyone you meet has something to teach you,” the saying goes. At worst, they give advice you don’t agree with and can ignore. More often, they’ll provide prospective and help shape your thinking.
So I request you to be my friend, advisor and a fellow investor – who helps me on this path and helps me learn and get over my mistakes.
Thanks once again…
Looking forward to do more in fourth year. :-)
