30 Days to Becoming a Better Investor
November is going to be a manic month of investment knowledge and wisdom here at Fat Pitch Financials. I hope to make November the month that we all become better investors by learning at least one new thing each and every day from each other.
Back in August, I participated in ProBlogger’s 31 days to building a better blog. It was a great idea, and I was recently wishing that a similar event would occur in the value investing community. Realizing the best way to see this happen would be to spearhead this effort myself, I decided to start planning for this a few weeks before November and begin recruiting the incredible knowledge of the investment blogging community.
Starting on November 1, 2005, the flood of investment philosophy, techniques, lessons learned, checklists, and any other great advice will begin. All I ask of you as readers is that you join in the frenzy of investing tips.
With the recent declines in the market, I thought we could use some inspiration to push forward in these challenging times. The darkest of times often produce the greatest of investment results. I’m hoping that 30 days to becoming a better investor will help inspire you and keep you interested enough in investing so that you won’t miss any fat pitches.
We will be revisiting some old tried and true ideas, coming up with some new ones and hopefully we will all improve our investing results. All I ask of you as readers is that you join in this effort to further our investment knowledge and wisdom. I am not even close to being an investment expert like Warren Buffett, so I alone won’t be able to provide you with all the answers. However, I bet that the wider value investment blogging community may have many of the answers to becoming a better investor. The only way to get at this communal knowledge is to make a commitment to share what we each know. You can do this in three ways:
- Leave comments on the entries that I post here. Fat Pitch Financials is increasingly becoming a place of conversation and group learning. I learn much from you and hope that you continue to teach us via your comments.
- Post your tips on becoming a better investor on your own blog and let me know about it. Just send me a quick message with a link to the article and maybe a brief summary. I will attempt to post something every day or two with a summary of the investment wisdom that you have shared.
- Suggest an investment topic for me or someone else to write about. To do this simply leave a comment below. I won’t guarantee it’ll be answered by me, but if you see a question and would like to tackle it on your own website (see #2 above) feel free to do so.
I’m looking forward to the learning that we do as a community in November!

Great idea. I have added you to the blogroll on my site and in my bookmarks to make sure I keep checking your site out. In terms of investment “advice” take a look at this article:
