Reducing post frequency

I started doing this blog with the idea of two posts per week, but it somehow morphed into one per day. I had a lot to say and somehow had found an outlet.

I was however chewing considerable human capital - having developed ideas over a long period of time. [I do not generate ideas as fast as I have put out posts.]

So it is time to face reality and drop the post frequency to one per week - somewhere near the level that I consider sustainable.

If given a choice between quantity and quality I will chose quality. I hope my readers are not too disappointed.

Obviously we are disappointed. There aren't many blogs around that have the quality you have displayed in the last couple of months. That doesn't mean we don't understand your decision.

all the best.

Thanks for your past (and hopefully future) posts!

Its the remaining part of the understanding the broker series that is causing the pain - as the Fannie Mae series caused before it.


The thesis I had is not standing up to the data - I will put that in a post shortly.

Actually, I'm pretty happy with this change. As a reader I only have limited time to get through my daily slog of listening to what other people say. And what you have been saying so far seems very worth paying attention to.

Now I look forward to having a smaller number of posts that I can pay deeper attention to.

Up to this point your posts have been done with quantity and quality. I just thought you were superhuman.
