    Instablogs are instantly set-up and networked blogs, customized for finance. Why start an "instablog" on Seeking Alpha?

    • Amazingly easy to set up. If you've already left a comment on Seeking Alpha or signed up for email alerts, you're already set up.
    • Customized for finance. When you write an instablog post, you're invited to tag it by stock symbol, and the side bar of your instablog allows your readers to see what you've written about stocks they're interested in.
    • Instant exposure. If you blog about stocks using a Seeking Alpha instablog, you're instantly part of a community interested in what you have to say. Your blog posts will appear on our quote pages, your instablog is promoted every time you comment on Seeking Alpha, and notifications of your instablog posts are sent automatically to your Followers. If you blog frequently, you may also appear in our Top Instablogs ranking.

    Hi David:


    I am giving it a go and have posted a couple of instablogs this morning. I did not notice a spell check. A good addition if you can do it.

    Author’s reply » Hi Steve,


    Thanks for the recommendation. There are a bunch of other things we're also fixing and upgrading on instablogs.

    Hi David,


    Tried out Instablog with a first post. Everything works fine....except the image.
    No matter what I do, upload the image or paste the image, it disappears after posting. My post loses much of the significance minus the table...I even inserted the excel table...it seemed to work...only 3 columns got chopped off:)


    I am sure these are initial glitches..and instablog will be a great addition!
