"According to IBM, 90 percent of the data in the world was created within the last two years,"
Nate Silver to Fresh Air's Dave Davies.
Whether this statement is completely accurate or not, the amount of information available and accessible to anyone with a computer is overwhelming.
To best serve our readers, here is a brief tutorial on how best to use our blog.
What is it? Our blog is a brief (400-600 words) article concerning personal finance. Publishing a blog is called posting. We post blogs at least once per week and when this happens our readers are notified by email of this post.
How do I use it? The email will give the title of the blog, which summarizes the content. Blog notifications are designed for the reader to skim through to determine if the topic is of interest to them. If the reader is interested they click on the title and the article will come into view. If the topic is not of interest, disregard it and move on to the next email.
Comments, questions and feedback: I am adding a space at the end of each blog (beginning today) for readers to request further information on the subject , to comment on the blog or to suggest a topic you would like to know more about. We are not permitted to allow readers to post comments directly on our blog without regulatory review and approval.
How you may view it: You may continue to receive email notifications of our blog posts or you may use a reader, for example, Google reader if you use gmail or Blogshelf if you use an iPad. Readers are designed for people who wish to follow several blogs and aggregate posts in one location. To view our blog through a reader, hit the RSS button on our blog page and follow the prompts.
Share the wealth: Please share information you find on our site with your friends and colleagues. You may share a blog post by using the media buttons at the top of the post, just under the title. This allows you to email the article, post to Linked in or Google Plus or tweet it! We also have a Facebook page that contains links to all of our blogs- we are not permitted to have comments on our company page but please “like” us!
