Yesterday was the 1-year Anniversary of my first post on Stone Street Advisors, “Shalom!” I started this site to continue what I’d started, contributing for The Atlantic, Zerohedge, Dealbreaker, and other sites, to get my ideas out into the open without anyone telling me what to write, when, or how. I also wanted to build a team of other finance (etc) professionals covering virtually every area of the industry, asset class, and style.
A year ago, it was just me. Today, there’s seven of us.
A year ago, this site was virtually unknown in the financial blogosphere. Now a year later, we’ve been mentioned by CNBC, Reuters, WSJ, NYT, FT Alphaville, Dealbreaker, Minyanville, Stocktwits and others.
We have and continue to try to educate our readers – and ourselves – about finance, economics, policy, and other matters that we find interesting and important. I think more often than not, our work is deeper, broader, and more nuanced than that which can ordinarily be found in most media.
Today, the start of our second year, my promise to you, dear reader, is to work harder than ever to bring you quality content. We want to shed light on things that often remain in the shade, or worse, obscured from view entirely.
I know I’m not perfect – far from it – but I’m committed to continuous improvement, and one of the best ways for me to do that is for you, the reader, to correct me when I’m wrong. Not only do I welcome feedback but I hope for it! Please keep reading and keep commenting; discussion and healthy debate are absolutely critical to share and clarify information.
In closing, I want to thank you, our readers, for your support for myself and the rest of the Stone Street Advisors team over the past year. Thank you to all of our supporters in the blogosphere/twitterverse/media. Thank you to the guys who’ve finally given-in to my incessant requests to join the team.
Stick with us, there’s bigger, better things coming this year!
