Stable Investor Turns Two

Stable Investor has turned two. But frankly speaking, it seems a lot more than just two years. 🙂 Before Stable Investor came into existence, I used to write about stock markets on an ad-hoc basis on my personal blog. But Stable Investor has now turned that interest into something more special for me. I would be honest with you guys. I could have continued or discontinued writing during the last 2 years. But when I saw people taking part in discussions about what I wrote, it gave me a big high and a renewed motivation to continue working on the site. 

I clearly remember that when the site had turned 1, I did a special post thanking everyone. At that time, SI had close to 100 email subscribers and around 475 fans on FB page. As of today, the number of email subscribers has risen to almost 1000 and fans have also exceeded 1000. Though these may not be big numbers, for me, these numbers, your comments and reactions on FB page provide an assurance that there are atleast a few dedicated long term investors, who are reading and listening. And that in itself is something very special for me.
And to help me improve Stable Investor, I request you to spare just two minutes of your precious time and fill out a survey of 6 simple questions. You won’t get any prizes, but your answers to these questions would help me improve Stable Investor.

Stable Investor turns 1-year old!

The Story

When we first started this site in November 2011, we were not sure how long this experiment would last. Our first post was all (or rather only) about number crunching and to confess, very very boring. 🙂 But we still had a reason for starting this site. And it was to keep a check on ourselves. A check that whether we are putting our principles to practice or not. You can read about the (real) purpose of Stable Investor if you want (Hint – Animal with spikes!!) 🙂
Months went by and somewhere in middle of 2012, we had a change of heart. After a lot of debate, we decided to change our approach towards long term investing, and in general towards long term wealth building. One thing led to another and we abandoned our old portfolio in favor of a new one; which received positive as well as negative reactions for its strange name – Dead Monk’s Portfolio. 🙂
Thank You
Though we write everything here for our own selfish purpose (after all, we killed a monk to name our portfolio 😉 ), the fact remains that a lot of people deserve a praise here.
So thanks to all of you.
It has been a year and we are debating how to take Stable Investor forward. We have a few ideas like starting discussions on personal finance, etc. But we still haven’t come to any solid conclusion. As of now, our first priority would be stay in line with our current purpose.  If you have any ideas about what more can be done, please let us know.
Proof of our Passion for Long Term Investing!!
