I have been doing this for a few months now and I haven’t seen much pick up in the readership. Now I’m trying to figure out what my/this blog’s focus should be. Whatever I decide on, I anticipate being slowed down or deterred by resources. On a daily basis, I am able to pick news from sites such as WSJ, FT, and Bloomberg. But what they offer is a wide range of news and updates. If I were to follow just one subject, I worry there will not be enough decent cites to take stuff from. So just focusing on one could be tough. And I do like writing about all sorts of development. Cutting down to one for the sake of increased readership is tough. But some potential foci I have in mind:
- Russian economy and the ruble
- Latin American markets – Brazil in particular
- Some sort of a daily news digest – not far from what I’m doing now, but covering more news and shorter “previews” (excerpts)
- Emerging markets – then again there’s not much about the US that will be covered
Any other thoughts?
