I have pondered for a while adding a ‘guest writer’ to the website. I know we have many writers (or as Seeking Alpha) calls them ‘analysts’ on the website and I would be happy to let them contribute to the site. I would limit the guest article to once per week.
The intent is to add some diverse opinion – hopefully on topics that add a little ‘spice’. For instance writing on business development companys and their baby bonds–or the CLO finance companys (Oxford Lane, Eagle Point Credit etc) and their baby bonds. I have high interest in these areas, but historically they have been dicier than what I invest in, although I have numerous holdings in the BDC baby bonds.
I am not trying to create a Seeking Alpha–that will never happen since we do not now, nor will I ever have a subscription fee. I want to add a little content with deeper dives into preferred stocks and baby bond issuers–that is all.
Pay–of course most folks want to be paid for their efforts. Pay is meager since we operate on donations only, but I would be willing to pay a modest amount. Additionally writers would be able to modestly ‘pitch’ their own investing groups elsewhere as a benefit.
If anyone has an interest please leave me a note in the comments. Please use your ‘real’ email when logging in to comments. (I can see that email–no one else can). Let me know what area you would write on and I will near to clear the topic before moving forward. I don’t plan to do much (if any) editing of any submitted article. I would hope the writer would be available to respond to comments etc.
