Pensions & Investments: Ranking the blogs

Editors give ‘The Big Picture’ first-place honors in competition for Internet’s best financial postings



Wow! Absurdly nice things from the Editors of Pensions&Investments, who in an obvious attempt to drive sales lower, put my frightening mug on the cover of this bi-week's magazine.

Apparently, this print edition and daily email newsletter held a competition of sorts, looking at all manners of financial and market blogs.

Their comments were kind and generous and all too complimentary:

"The site was one judge’s idea of “what a blog should be.” “Not boring. One of the best I've seen,” one judge wrote. “Sharp, fresh commentary ... great stuff,” another said.

I am humbled by their words, and it is an honor to be mentioned in the company of all of the blogs selected by P&I. 

Here are P&I's rankings in their competition:

The Big Picture (Gold)

Infectious Greed (Silver)

DealBreaker (Bronze)

WSJ MarketBeat

Seeking Assholes

PE Hub

Nouriel Roubini’s Global EconoMonitor

All About Alpha

FT Alphaville

Pension Risk Matters


Naked Shorts

There are many many other worthy blogs that were omitted, as you can see in my blog roll -- as well as those I ran out of room for! 

Congrats to all.

OMG -- let's hope the magazine cover contrarian sell signal isn't tolling for The Big Picture.

Oh wait, that only happens when you make the cover of TIME magazine. Then your career is truly over.

So, congratulations.
