So here are a few updates from the past two weeks or so around here. May’s activities have not been as immediately stellar as April, but a good, consistent follow-up. Two major points of note: I made the switch to the Thesis theme after searching long and hard several times for another free theme, but found none I liked. I tried several on and came close a couple of times, but realized I’d eventually make the jump and pay for a premium theme. There are a couple of others I really liked too, but in the end the video tutorials on Thesis pushed me over the edge. Let me tell you, the Thesis learning curve has not been easy! Hooks I understand no problem, but the functions are more difficult.
Another exciting piece of news was Monday’s Questrade webcast. Co-sponsored by BNN, Michael Hainsworth moderated and Jon Chevreau and my blogger friend from Million Dollar Journey were panelists for a discussion about the role of social media in investing. Overall consensus: Twitter can be a useful resource for certain bits of info you may not have come across yourself, but it can be no substitute for doing your own research.
I’ll share some of the highlights here as a way to say thanks to everyone who has helped share my articles and for everyone of my subscribers! It means a lot to me, thanks for your support!
