Interesting Findings On Local Retail Investors' Blogging statistics

Blogging trends
Ever since I kicked off my mini shares investment venture, reading other peers' blogs become my daily routine. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised that there are quite a number of savvy retail investors who are pro-bloggers too.
Also, quite a number of the blogs that I've read on daily basis are very intriguing, to say the least. Hence, I thought it is a good idea to summarise some of the interesting findings from the local investor bloggers. 
Here we go:
1. Most of the bloggers are male (and majority are young working adult), I would say 90/10 (80% are male). I think maybe lady retail investors like to keep such venture/experience private? ;-)
2. Most of the bloggers are using free-hosting Blogger (instead of the more popular WordPress) as their blogging platform Personally, I am using Blogger too for this particular blog. For me, it is because of the ease of use and its seamless integration with Google AdSense (even though I've not implemented it in this blog yet). If you are using Blogger as your blogging platform too, what is your reason?
3. Most of the bloggers do incorporate some sort of online advertisement (majority are via Google AdSense) in their blogs. I find that it is great way to share, learn and earn all at the same time. Of course, for such online advertisement placement to take off, the key is TRAFFICS and to attract more traffics, unique, interesting and frequency of articles/posts made the difference.
Do you have the similar observation as per what I've just shared? Feel free to share your own observation too.


  1. One more findings I find is that some will retire permanently from blogging wbile others continue and newcomers joining the community :)

    1. Thanks for sharing, I guess I am too "new" to identified those "retired" investors-cum-bloggers

  2. True!

    I have seen so many bloggers and including the "Gurus" gone away after 2008/09 GFC.

    Three of my favorite and most admired "Guru" class bloggers whom I visited everyday and several times per day.

    The "Gurus" themselves were slaughtered by GFC Bear and gave up blogging. Malu?

    I am waiting to see for how long the current new-born "Guru" class bloggers will last when the next Great Crisis hit.


    1. Thanks for dropping by and sharing your observation. I guess you will be one of the newer generation of gurus.Anyway, nowadays social media like Facebook and Twitter might be more hip than blogs ;-)

  3. I know of 2 female bloggers(never met the second one before). One is property soul and the other is the singtelon files.
