    I have read hundreds and hundreds of articles on SA and I must tell you that we have the most amazing collection of author/writers/contributors/commentors, etc. on this website that I have ever had the pleasure to read.

    I am probably not the most sophisticated writer, because I feel that what folks need is clarity, ease of undertanding and that "oh yeah" moment when it comes to the financial world, investing, and money management.

    I will continue to write articles for the regular guy or gal who needs to be able to cut through the confusion to get to the point that they understand what this whacky world of investing really is.

    Ever wonder what makes Jim Cramer so effective?

    It isnt his stock picking ability thats for sure, and this man is a Harvard MBA, brilliant, and as good a financial expert as they come....in a very unique way.....he is able to communicate to regular people, what some might say are very complex concepts. He does it in a way that is entertaining, as well as informative, and breaks it down so that more folks can actually understand this stuff.

    Those are the folks who I write for. Not the "experts" who already know everything, but for those who have a desire to do better, to learn, to handle their situation in the best possible manner, without having to pay someone else to do it for them!

    As I have stated, I am not a professional advisor, I am not a stock broker, and I have never been in the business of selling any of those services to anyone....for me, this is FUN and the way I give back to people....not to get clients, not to sell a product, or promote a stock for personal gain.

    From time to time I will give a plug to a company that I happen to be affiliated with, but do not receive a dime from....bizodo.com, simply because I know the folks there, they have a great product, and can actually help any business succeed.

    So, why am I here?

    To impart 40 years of experience, and my somewhat succesful track record in the world of investments, as well as my corny, whacky, shameless self promoting goofy side, for anyone who wants to take a few minutes to read some very direct, straight to the point, no muss no fuss, nicely written articles that could actually help many many people, learn, succeed, and understand a bit more than they did before they read my stuff!

    I find it absolutely remarkable, that in about one month since I began writing here, that I have had nearly 1/4 of a million readers, have become the number one most read author on retirement strategies, and in the top 50 in a slew of other categories......why?????? I think because I speak to everyone, and everyone can understand me....and I absolutely love doing this.....it has given me more satisfaction than I ever had in my 40 years out "there" in the world of business. UNBELIEVABLE! (but absolutely the truth)

    I would like to feel I am not alone in this regard. I think that the really great authors and contributors to Seeking Alpha feel as I do. Tremendous satisfaction that people are getting a lot out of what we offer.....and its FREE for everyone out there!

    OK, I said my piece

    Keep reading my articles, and keep liking what I have to say!

    Thanks,

    RS

  • I totally agree! This is the best place on the web for investors at any level of experience to share, discuss and learn from each other. That's why I publish here also and, more than likely, will continue to do so for as long as I am able.

     

    It's fun to start a discussion on a company, concept, or strategy and it always amazes me how many others with extensive experience will take the time to provide sage advice.

  • Hi RS:

     

    It's hard to find honesty in a blow-smoke and blue-mirrors world. You, sir, are the real deal, and those of us that seek plain spoken yet articulate and intelligent messengers are listening...closely.

     

    Any chance of running for President???
