Today’s post marks my 50th blog post since I began the blog on April 22, 2012. To me, it feels good to be writing posts and I hope it is helpful to some business owners and investors out there. To make sure it is helpful, I would appreciate some feedback:
- Any feedback on the topics that you like and do not like?
- Any feedback on the frequency of posts (most weeks have about 2 posts with some weeks at 1 or 3)?
- Any feedback on the length of the posts, shorter or longer?
- Any other feedback?
