I was pleased – and surprised – to stop by my mailbox today and find it crammed with envelopes ordering signed copies of my book. All of the envelopes had little notes inside – – some post-its, some sheets of paper, and some formal greeting cards.
One comment struck me, saying that they really liked Slope better when it was just me writing it.
I've heard this from more than one person, and I feel a little weird about the sentiment. On the one hand, I'm flattered, but on the other, I am grateful for the guest content Slope gets, and I think some of the best material comes from guests. So I doubt I'll ever make it a Tim-only blog again.
However, keep in mind that there is a way to set the blog so that it only shows my posts, and that is by clicking the link as represented below. If you do this, a cookie will be set for your browser so that only posts submitted by me are displayed. Just understand posts will be a lot less frequent, since I'm only doing a portion of the writing.
I also wanted to remind folks of a little tip in the new comment system – – if you want to automatically link to a graph of a company, as well as a lot of fundamental information – – just type $ followed by the ticker symbol (example: $GOOG). Thanks, and good night!
